"Greetings, Salutations! I, Khyron send you all joyous cheer and best wishes! I, my beautiful wife Sammy, and our many daughters wish you all a merry and safe Christmas, Kwanza, Yule, Seasonal Holidays! We bid you much merriment, healthful libations, roast beast, figgy pudding, family gatherings, exchanges of gifts and tokens of affection! Enjoy! Celebrate! Rejoice! That is your Imperative! Go forth and be merry!"
"Well said, love. That was Grel on the phone; he called to say he can't make it tomorrow, but he'll definitely make New Years. Oh, and your cousin Ifurita's going to drop by tomorrow with her husband Makoto."
"Most excellent! I look forward to seeing Grel again, and meeting Ifurita's husband again! A clever young man!"
"Honey, when's the last time you heard from Geraro?"
"Just yesterday in fact! He and Leonard are going icefishing-"


Anatole Leonard and Geraro are sitting in an ice fishing hut.
Leonard: "Check your line?"
Geraro nods, pulls up his line; there are two bottles of beer attached to the end.
Geraro: "Cold enough."
Leonard: "Perfect."
They break off the caps and clink bottles.
"Happy Holidays."

Well... 260 pages... let's hope I don't accidentally copy someone else.


Interviewer : So… How was it to be on the set of Robotech in the 80s and once again, now, in 2025 to film the sentinels?
Wolf : Oh… You know. The usual. Except now instead of makeup we get these nice CGI effects to keep me looking young.
Interviewer : Really? But we barely notice you’d aged at all!
Wolf : Yeah, right… If that makes you happy.
Interviewer : So. What would be your favourite memory of all this time?
Wolf : Hum… That’s a good one. Wait… There’s so many.
Interviewer : Would it be about a girl?
Wolf : God no! Most of the time between scenes I was hanging out with the guys doing the Invid; for the air conditioner. I guess the thing I miss the most would be Brad, the guy who did the Regent. He had such a sense of humour, always paying ice cream for his “little snails” as he called them.
* Wipes a tear *
Wolf : Sorry… I just… He died from diabetes last year, you know…

////////////////////////////

* Breetai seizes Max’s sterling VF-1, ram a knee right in the abdomen of its battloid form then project it right into the wall *

CRASH

Director : Damn it. The darn wall fell again. Breetai! Be careful.
Breetai : Sorry… and better call the props department, we’ll need a new cockpit.
Rick's VF: DUDE! You got to stop breaking this stuff! You're not supposed to hit us so hard!
Guy in VF-1 costume : … Help… I think I broke my arm…

///////////////////////////////

* Two regults walks into position on the left of two more which seems rather two dimensional… *

BOOM.

* Only the one on the right is still standing *

Director : CUT! Sh “Beep”! We use these cardboard stand-in for a reason, who bombed the animatronics?

////////////////////////////////

Dixon : Don’t worry fearless leader, as long as I’m here, nothing bad will happens.
Rick : Dixon, you have an officer’s pod on your 6. Evasive manoeuvres… NOW!
Dixon : I can’t shake it… I can’t!
* String holding Glaug’s miniature breaks, Glaug falls out of screen *
Rick : Well, that’s settled.
Dixon : F “beep” … The pyrotechnics already started in here, fire crew please!

Director : cUUUUUTTTT!!!!

////////////////////////////////////////////////
* Lisa coming in depressed, nearly crying. Today is the day she gives up the force…
She looking toward her commanding officer, hidden in the cut out lightning and shadows of the sunset on the bridge of the SDF-1. Gloval turns toward her and walk into the light, a very paternal and concerned looks on his face.
They stand here for about 10 seconds. *

Gloval : Don’t worry Lisa. Even the best of us will, from time to time, forget our lines.

* Lisa looks like she’s going to burst, either in frustration or in tears *

Gloval : It’s alright. I’m an Invid simulagent too you know.
Lisa ( In Shock) : … You WHAT?

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Zor : You know… it’s enough you follow me everywhere in the script, but in real life, in the showers? What’s your thing? You’re a method actor or something?
Dante : No. It’s just… How in hell do you keep your hairs curved up like that?
Zor : That’s not of your damn business, now buzz off!

*Leonard creeps back in the distance, looking disappointed *

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

*Dana’s bath scene *
* Phone’s ringing. *

Cameraman #1 : "Beep"… do we cut?
Director : Na… We’ll have to dub in the narration anyway. KEEP Rolling. Continue Dana.
* Phone’s ringing *
Dana : Guy’s seriously, I’m supposed to look like I’m giving a F “beep” about the Red Bioroid pilot in here. Can someone answer that damn thing?
*Phone’s ringing *
*Crew search frantically for the source *

Dana : Oh… Wait, that’s my twitter alert!

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Master #1 : Now they’ve done it. We’ve lost communication with the Zentroodi fl...
Master #2 : It’s “Traedi”.
Master #1 : ...eet. Would it be possible that the disciple of Zod had beaten…
Master #3 : IT’S “ZOR”!
Master #1 : I’m pretty sure it’s Zod. Now would you please both shut up and let me tell my line!

Director : Cut… * facepalm * Who did the cast on these three?

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

*An Invid shocktrooper is searching the forest, somewhere he knows, a human renegade is hiding.
Suddenly he stops and shudders, his arms go limp and flailing a little.
Then, like turned mad by a silent dog whistle from hell, he starts banging his own head like trying to rip it appart*

Invid #1 : ARGH! Get me out of here, there is a spider in the suit! GET ME OUT!!!!
Invid #2 : Well, if we’re getting him down time, can I have a soda? It’s so damn hot in here.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Rand : How can she sleeps in a place like this?
Scott : Oh… I don’t know. Children can sleep anywhere…
* Long Silence *
Rand (Whispering ) : Isn’t she supposed to get up and get all scary?
* More Silence *
Scott : Hey Annie!
* No Answer *
Scott : ANNIE! HEY! WAKE UP! Damn… I guess Kids CAN sleep anywhere.
* Swat a mosquito in disgust *

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Wolf : Catherine… Jhonny… Oh…
Scott : Jonathan, you saved our lives. You were a…
Wolf : (Laugh hysterically) Oh… Oh get over it kid, you’re so f”beep”ing damn serious, I can’t rest in peace here. (Laugh some more). So… (laugh) Sorry (laugh.) Hu-Hum. I’ll do one more. But damn, you’d almost believe I did something right. Downplay it a little, will ya?

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Interviewer : But, going back to the beginning, how was it to work with Minmei?
Wolf : You mean Sarah? Oh… She’s a true nuclear. To be fair I had better chemistry with her double though.
Intervewer : If we’re to believe the scuttlebutt on the sets, you've had chemistry with all the girls.
Wolf : Me? You’re joking right... Right?
Interviewer : And what about the allegations made by Sarah’s agent that you…
Wolf : Stop this. I’ve had enough of this, of you, there was nothing you hear? NOTHING!
* Stand up and walks directly toward the camera to punch it.*

This reminds me of a scene from the 1950s 'Ivanhoe' where a supposedly hardcore English knight speaks up with a very DISTINCT Bronx accent:
"Yanda is the castle of my fadda."
