|"Marshall's Theory of Believability": The Script Post, Part 2
||[Mar. 25th, 2016|11:36 pm]
In which the script post goes to 11. Well, page 11.
So when we last left Our Heroes, the mayor and company had just appeared.
Page 11 has more notes:
Knight does not get to cite Zircon for the "faulty rear view mirror adjustment" in the episode.
Things go pretty much as scripted for a while, except in the script, you get to see everyone get into the police car and Chisel slams the door "revealing the police motto: EERIE POLICE DEPARTMENT - TO PROTECT AND SWERVE - MONDAY THRU FRIDAY 9AM TO 5PM - SATURDAY 12 TO 4 - CLOSED SUNDAYS."
[Meh. I like "To protect and control" way better.]
And then we get to Marshall's house and notes pick up again:
I do not know why they would consider giving that one line to Syndi.
Tito the Invincible becomes Algernon the Invincible in the final episode.
Marilyn's strange patience line is cut here.
A sort-of note on page 14:
In the episode, some of Edgar's off-screen lines are missing and the action with Claude is slightly different.
Marilyn's "Sir" and salute at the end of "space noodles with moon sauce" are unscripted.
A minor note on 15:
In the episode, the older Tellers are all in the living room instead of the dining room at this point.
Edgar's "I happen to know a little something about astronomy myself" in the script becomes "I happen to know a little something about orbital mechanics..."
In the episode, Simon doesn't spin around in completely the wrong direction or get to yell "May Day! May Day!" when the space thing lands.
And we end Act 1 on more notes:
[Would he really be "equally amazed" though? I mean, as far as he knows, it's just Claude's phony space thing in the wrong spot.]
Act II in the next post, either tomorrow or slightly later tonight, depending on whether or not I decide I'm going to bed at a reasonable hour.
