    Just to clarify things, I told John to start issuing the sorts of lines one might hear in a movie, and we batted them at one another continuously for over an hour. And now we have a script. Movies are easy.

    I am truly saddened that you forgot the obligatory courtroom drama fabulousness of:

    “I’m going to allow it…but you’d better be going somewhere with this, fast!”

    You seem to have limited yourselves primarily to cop thrillers and sports flicks and should really broaden your horizons some. “Tsk!”

  • Nick Murdoch

    All it needs now is some stage directions and props to make it vaguely continuous! I had a guy holding on for dear life to a cliff-face while he and the buddy holding onto him wer trying to do an operation, at one point.

    Did you remember:

    “Why didn’t you tell me you were secretly a Pinkerton agent working for the downfall of the corrupt town sheriff and his evil employer?”

    “You never asked me”

    Not only have you created a script, but you have the potential for millions of scripts. I reckon you could output these lines in any order at all, and they would still make some sort of sense (or more sense than the average hollywood script). Anyone feel like creating a quick web app? For a bit more control you could classify them by genre.

    “nickm (Kopete): How could I stay mad with you?”

    At you? Or with you?

    Either way I’m laughing at it. Well done Nick and John.

    nickm (Kopete): Breath! Damn you! Breath!


    Or is it “Breath! Breath!” as in “I am speaking what I’m doing. As I exhale I do a breath. Breath breath breath”?

    You liked The Longest Journey? Well, you may be interested in the sequal, Dreamfall. It was only just released, and it WILL make you cry. Several times. Here are some links you’ll find interesting.

    Yeah, subtle mate.

    Keep your virals off my site, thanks.

  • bob_arctor

    “Sequal”? Ouch.

    And as if JW wouldn’t know about Dreamfall! Pah!

  • Mrs Trellis

    You forgot:
    “It’s showtime!”
    “Come with me if you want to live”
    “Who are you?”
    “That’s not important right now. Just listen.”
    “Tell your friends about me. Tell everyone about me.”

    “All I ask is five minutes. After that, if you still want to leave…I won’t stop you.”


    “I swear there were two bodies there a minute ago!”

    Ooh, and a personal favourite:

    “You’re an amazing swordsman” [removes opponent’s mask] “Oh my God, you’re a woman!”

  • Tedi Worrier

    “You are wonderful.”

    “Thank you; I’ve worked hard to become so.”

    “I admit it, you are better than I am.”

    “Then why are you smiling?”

    “Because I know something you don’t know.”

    “And what is that?”

    “I… am not left-handed. ”

    It doesn’t get better than this
