Transcript:
Bob says...
You sound like you're in a cult.
No, it's just good
writing technique.
I made you a copy
of McKee's 10 Commandments.
I posted one over
both our work areas.
You shouldn't have done that.
Because it's extremely helpful.
Hey, Charles, I'm putting a song on.
"Happy Together."
Like when characters sing
in their pajamas and dance around.
I thought it'd break the tension.
At first I was nervous
about putting a song in a thriller,
but Bob says that Casablanca, one of
the greatest screenplays ever written,
did exactly that. Mixed genres.
