Daily Dialogue — January 31, 2017

“I’m giving you a choice. Either put on these glasses… or start eating that trash can.”

They Live (1988), screenplay by John Carpenter, based on a short story by Ray Nelson

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Threat, suggested by Angry Cyborg.

Trivia: The big fight sequence was designed, rehearsed and choreographed in the back-yard of director John Carpenter’s production office. The fight between Nada (Roddy Piper) and Frank (Keith David) was only supposed to last twenty seconds, but Piper and David decided to fight it out for real, only faking the hits to the face and groin. They rehearsed the fight for three weeks. Carpenter was so impressed he kept the five minutes and twenty seconds scene intact.

Dialogue On Dialogue: One of the greatest all-time ridiculous threat lines in the history of cinema. So bad, it’s awesome!

Daily Dialogue — January 29, 2017

Flik: Here, pretend — pretend that that’s a seed.
Dot: It’s a rock.
Flik: Oh, I know it’s a rock, I know. But let’s just pretend for a minute that it’s a seed, alright? We’ll just use our imaginations. Now, now do you see our tree? Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed. All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voilá!
Dot: This rock will be a tree?
Flik: Seed to tree. You’ve gotta work with me, here. Alright? Okay. Now, y-you might not feel like you can do much now, but that’s just because, well, you’re not a tree yet. You just have to give yourself some time. You’re still a seed.
Dot: But it’s a rock.
Flik: [shouting] I know it’s a rock! Don’t you think I know a rock when I see a rock? I’ve spent a lot of time around rocks!
Dot: You’re weird, but I like you.

A Bug’s Life (1998), screenplay by Andrew Stanton and Don McEnery & Bob Shaw, story by John Lasseter & Andrew Stanton & Joe Ranft

The Daily Dialogue theme this week: Callback.

Trivia: During the summer of 1994, Pixar’s story department began turning their thoughts to their next film, while Toy Story (1995) was in post-production. The storyline of A Bug’s Life (1998) originated in a lunchtime conversation between John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Joe Ranft, the studio’s head story team. Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Finding Nemo (2003), and WALL·E (2008) were also conceived at this lunch. Lasseter and his story team had already been drawn to the idea of insects as characters. Insects, like toys, were within the reach of computer animation at the time due to their relatively simple surfaces. Stanton and Ranft wondered whether they could find a starting point in Aesop’s fable The Ant and the Grasshopper. Walt Disney had produced his own version with a cheerier ending decades earlier in the 1934 short film The Grasshopper and the Ants (1934). In addition, Walt Disney Animation Studios had considered producing a film in the late 1980s entitled “Army Ants”, that centered around a pacifist ant living in a militaristic colony, but it never fully materialized.

Dialogue On Dialogue: One of the most effective uses of a callback is to invert the dynamic from the first to second use. That’s exactly what happens in A Bug’s Life. In the scene cited here, Flik uses a rock to symbolize a seed to help Dot feel better about herself.

Later when Flik is in the midst of his All Is Lost moment, Dot turns the table, presenting a rock to Flik and saying to him, “Pretend it’s a seed.” She uses the association of Flik’s own words from before to pull him out of his funk.

“Pretend it’s a seed.”

We’ve had a week’s worth of callbacks. Hopefully this is something you can — and will — use in your own writing.

Daily Dialogue — January 28, 2017

“Wanna know how I got these scars?”

The Dark Knight (2008), screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, characters by Bob Kane

The Daily Dialogue theme this week: Callback.

Trivia: Unlike his counterpart in both the comics and Batman (1989), the Joker in this film does not have his hair and flesh permanently bleached by toxic waste. His trademark grin was never definitively identified in the comics as a disfigurement. However, its appearance here, as scars deliberately carved into his flesh, echo the character’s original inspiration, the character Gwynplaine from Victor Hugo’s novel The Man Who Laughs (1928).

Dialogue On Dialogue: The Joker says this line three times:

The comedy Rule of Three also works with drama. Three establishes a pattern and here it works beautifully because the third time the pattern gets broken when Batman interrupts The Joker by tossing him overhead.

Also the fact The Joker tells two different stories as to the origin of his scars is yet another way to play around with his trickster persona.

Great use of callbacks.

“Stupid is as stupid does.”

Forrest Gump (1994), screenplay by Eric Roth, based on the novel by Winston Groom

The Daily Dialogue theme this week: Callback.

Trivia: Tom Hanks was not paid for this film. Instead, he took percentage points which ultimately netted him in the region of forty million dollars.

Dialogue On Dialogue: Forrest recalls this line, taught to him by his mother, a number of times in the movie.

Daily Dialogue — January 24, 2017

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

The Princess Bride (1987), screenplay by William Goldman, novel by William Goldman

The Daily Dialogue theme this week: Callback.

Trivia: In a 2012 interview in New York Magazine, Mandy Patinkin said that his most famous line from The Princess Bride (1987) (“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”) gets quoted back to him by at least two or three strangers every day of his life. Patinkin told the interviewer that he loves hearing the line and he also loves the general fact that he got to be in the movie, stating, “I’m frankly thrilled about it. I can’t believe that I got to be in The Wizard of Oz, you know what I mean?”

Dialogue On Dialogue: A great callback side. This video below shows the setup, then the payoff. Inigo says the line a total of 6 times, each time with more meaning than the last.
