Two snippets of dialogue from the show I created in my imaginary career as a sitcom writer

TIM: So who did you pick as your wedding band?

DOOLEY: Sixpence None the Richer.

TIM: Really?

DOOLEY: Yeah, Margaret went to high school with their lead singer's debt counselor.

TIM: Wow.

DOOLEY: You get a ten percent discount on the gig if you don't ask them if they were a joke.

***

KINGMAN: So I figure one of you can take it up when I turn over the reigns of the Monkeynomics column.

ERIN: Actually, we were thinking of dropping that.

KINGMAN: No! Really? Why?

ERIN: Low readership.

KINGMAN: You're kidding. I think it's the best thing I've ever written.

DOOLEY: Maybe it's just ahead of its time.

KINGMAN: Well, what don't people like about it?

TIM: I think there's a feeling that macroeconomics analogies featuring chimpanzees are a bit out of place in an entertainment magazine.

KINGMAN: Wow. I mean, I was thinking of doing a book.

DOOLEY: Maybe someday, boss.

KINGMAN Like when?

DOOLEY: When monkeys become sentient.
