brick
 v.— «During last year’s pilot season all my friends—actors, writers, directors—were saying, “You gotta read the Aaron Sorkin script.” So I started lobbying to do an audition. But then I went in and bricked.” Bricked? “Screwed up the audition. I walked out, and I was like, ‘Uhhhhh, I just buh-lew it.’ And there was Robert Guillaume. I went up to him and I went, ‘Ohhhh, Robert, I’m not gonna be in on this. I bricked.’”» —“Huffman enjoys her playing time on ABC” by Frazier Moore Charleston Gazette (West Virginia) Mar. 9, 1999.
