Waiting for Wotan, entr'acte

As a treat (read: working late, like midnight late, so no work on Waiting 'cause I spent the morn curled up in a little ball because of ANARCHY IN THE USA am lazy), a glimpse inside A Very Special Episode of the writers' room:
EARL: "Ye olde metal ha ha ha."
DUCHESS: "Verily punk hee hee hee."
EARL: "What about chuckle --
DUCHESS: "no, try chortle --"
EARL: "I've got it, wheeze."
DUCHESS: "Why not all three."
EARL: "We've got phat rhymes --"
DUCHESS: "& you don't know how to use them. I'd rather wait for the real Wotan or the apocalypse whichever comes first than read this shit every week. I quit."
EARL: "Fuck you."
DUCHESS: "No, fuck you."
EARL: "Morello!"
DUCHESS: "Gasp! Nugent!"
EARL: "En garde!"
DUCHESS: "Finish him!"
LI'L EDGAR: "Children, fighting never solves anything except who gets to write the history books."
EARL: "Now we know --"
DUCHESS: "I'm not saying it."
LI'L EDGAR: "That's all right, G.I. Joe knows you know, you know?"
EARL: "Shall we?"
DUCHESS: "Waiting for Wotan sure beats taking loyalty oaths."
EARL: "Thank Valhalla for low standards."
DUCHESS: "Only reason we're friends."
LI'L EDGAR: "Ouch."
EARL: "Shut up."
DUCHESS: "Chortle, chuckle, wheeze."

No actual Ned Tugents or Mom Torellos were harmed in the making of this production.

Randal Graves said...

This one is gonna go over like parading bulls wango tangoing in a china shop.

Prunella Vulgaris said...

At least both of them have pockets full of shells.

Randal Graves said...

But the Nuge has a stash of love grenades, whereas Tommy can only counter with Audioslave. He's gonna need reinforcements.

Prunella Vulgaris said...

What? No face-punching? No tossing of St. Drogo's Elixir via mugs of madnesse?

Randal Graves said...

First, you left out who, where, when, why, and how.

Second, fisticuffs are *your* gig.

Third, as I don't own a pair of Isotoners or metal gauntlets, I fear, in a rage against the undying of the stupid, accidentally flinging the mug along with the elixir, and if that happens, you'd see my cry like a woman or, worse, like a Randal.

Fourth, a third thing.

Nothing inside about this we're all in the same sinking boat. Now pass the Cheetoes and hand me the remote.

Randal Graves said...

Speak for yourself, those doubloons are mine, and stop hijacking the comment box.

Tom Harper said...

Hey, what happened? I clicked on the little button next to "Global Thermonuclear War" but nothing happened. What'd I do wrong?

Jim H. said...

Does Johnny Depp play Li'l Edgar here too?

Oh, so I'm the sober one, for the first time ever?

Randal Graves said...

tom, never trust Dabney Coleman. Didn't you see Cloak and Dagger? Sheesh.

jim, I thought that was John Cusack, whose finest role is still Layne in Better Off Dead.

if, librarians are well-compensated masters of the realm, dude. In between drinks, we dictate.

Not being sure whether the correct response is to chortle, chuckle, or wheeze, I think I'll just go and lie down.

Jim H. said...

Point taken. But it should be JD.

I liked Cusack in the record shop movie.
