Clue: The Movie Progressive Dialogue

Post by Frostbyte » Fri Feb 17, 2006 8:47 pm

The little flurry of quotes in the "Are you gay" thread gave me an idea to start a progressive movie line thread.

Rules: You can only quote one line from one character (until another character has a line) until the next time you're on the forums. If someone misses a line, quote them with the embedded quote feature, and correct the thread with the right line.

I'll start us off... let's see how long it takes to get through the whole movie:)

(As the dogs approach and threaten to tear him apart)

WADSWORTH. No!

Maybe we should include the action, too?

(He drops something -- his coat, I think -- and they nip at that for a while, and then glare at him, daring him to make a move. He unrolls a brown paper bag in his hand, and from it draws two thick -- what are they? ribs? -- and tosses them across the patio. Immediately, the dogs fly after the treats, leaving the door unguarded. He rolls up the bag, sets his jaw in a way to suggest "Game, set, and match," and hurries to the place where the chains are lashed to the wall. He unfastens their chains, pulls through a considerable length of chain to shorten them, and refastens. This is when he goes back, gets his coat, smiles back at the dogs in triumph, takes one step to the doors, and realizes he's stepped in it. He carefully looks over his shoe sole, and delivers a scathing look back to the dogs, who are politely interested in him, now that he's their friend. He gives them a cold shoulder, and proceeds to the front door.)

(Inside, the front door opens, and the song "Shake, Rattle, and Roll," is heard from another room. Wadsworth turns to wipe excrement from his sole, then walks inside. He puts away his hat and coat in a closet, slides his umbrella into a stand, and closes the front door. He walks into the room, hands folded behind his back.)

SUPERIMPOSED CAPTION. New England / 1954

(The music is louder inside the library, since it plays from the library radio. Yvette is here, dancing and cleaning champagne glasses. Enter Wadsworth from the hall, unnoticed. He goes directly to the radio and switches it off. Yvette -- startled -- stops dancing. He approaches her, all business.)

That is a neat idea Caspen, but I don't think most of us have time or patience to do that every time =P

Wadsworth: Is everything ready?
Yvette: Oui, Monsieur.
Wadsworth: You have your, um, instructions?

Wadsworth. Yes, indeed, sir. You are expected, Colonel. May I take your coat? It is Colonel Mustard, isn't it?

WADSWORTH. Let me, sir. But I think you will feel obliged to my employer this evening, for the use of an alias.

I'm ashamed to admit that I'm not sure of the next line... :oops:

Is it:

Colonel Mustard:
And who are you, sir?

WADSWORTH. Yvette. Will you attend to the Colonel, and give him anything he requires? ... Within reason, that is.

Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!
