Punishing schedule

I don’t know what you lot are doing in this limbo between Christmas and New Year but some of us are slogging our guts out watching films every night to get the hang of how screenplays work.

Last night it was Sleepless in Seattle,


of which my favourite line is:

Verbal ability is a highly overrated thing in a guy, and it's our pathetic need for it that gets us into so much trouble.

Although there are plenty of other good lines, such as

Sam Baldwin: What is "tiramisu"?

Jay: You'll find out.

Sam Baldwin: Well, what is it?

Jay: You'll see!

Sam Baldwin: Some woman is gonna want me to do it to her and I'm not gonna know what it is!

Anyway…the thing is….I have to pick key scenes as well as bits of dialogue from  BUT I TOLD YOU LAST YEAR THAT I LOVED YOU for the screenplay, and that’s what I’m working on today.
