Good Writing Is Hard Work: Parrot Soup

Presenting Parrot Soup: Desperate Men (Season Two Episode Two)

Featuring Kid Kadra, as Captain Kid Kadra

Writing good dialog is hard work. If you don't believe us, just try it some time. Lauren Bacall's clip from the classic Humphrey Bogart movie To Have and Have Not nicely sums up the model of script writing we strive for: short, terse, concise, to the point! Sometimes the best dialog is no dialog at all, like when Bogey puts his lips together and whistles. As they say, silence is golden.

In case you missed Episode One of Season Two:

There Was An Old Lady Who Lived In a Shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. 

She had so many children, she didn't know what to do; 

She gave them some broth without any bread.

Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
