Join the Daily Dialogue crew: 3,558 consecutive days and counting.
The Daily Dialogue theme for next week: Voice Mail.
Since the introduction of answering machines back in the late 1970s, voice mail has become a standard feature in movies. As with all new technologies, screenwriters have adapted voice mail to serve numerous purposes: provide exposition, surprise revelations, awkward moments, convey threats, and so forth. So this week, we consider the use of voice mail in movies. Your suggestions wanted!
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.
Consecutive days of Daily Dialogue posts: 3,558.
