Daily Dialogue theme next week: Monologue

Join the Daily Dialogue crew: 3,530 consecutive days and counting.

The Daily Dialogue theme for next week: Monologue.

Monologues. Tough to write, but when a screenwriter nails it… the angels sing… or mad men shout.

“You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!’”

This week, let’s look at some great movie monologues.

What to do:

  • Copy/paste dialogue from IMDb Quotes or some other transcript source.
  • Copy/paste the URL of an accompanying video from YouTube or some other video source.
  • Any trivia about the movie which you think would be of interest to readers, we always welcome that.

I’d also ask you to think about why the dialogue is notable. Is there anything about the dialogue which provides some takeaway related to the craft of writing? If so, feel free to share your Dialogue On Dialogue.
