Script quotes by Richard Ayoade
#1. A writer/director is a tough thing to gauge when someone hasn't directed a movie before. You just don't know. Sometimes it will be a great script that's written beautifully, and then the director who has also written it does not have the facility to translate it. #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Script quotes by Sara Gilbert
#2. I'd just love to have an audience and it's the most fun in the world to get a new script every week and have the audience come in, and work with those actors. #Quote by Sara Gilbert
Script quotes by David Lynch
#3. You get all the puzzle parts together enough to say the puzzle is complete. It's a script. In the process of realizing that, new ideas can come, one way or another. Through a happy accident, they just come to you. #Quote by David Lynch
Script quotes by Emily Browning
#4. There have been a few times when I've read a script and it's really cool but the girl character's just kind of pathetic. It's not going to do me any favours just being 'the girl' in a cool movie. #Quote by Emily Browning
Script quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#5. I always feel that if you put me in a room with a director and a writer and let me talk about the script, I can give a good account of myself. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Script quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#6. I am at your service, my lady, I said, standing and releasing her hand. For the first time in my life I understood the true purpose of this sort of formal greeting. It gives you a script to follow when you have absolutely no idea what to say. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Script quotes by Nimrat Kaur
#7. As an actor, there are many confusing factors that can make you take or not take a decision. It becomes difficult. Your first and last checkpoint should be the story. I always read a script as an audience. #Quote by Nimrat Kaur
Script quotes by Joe Dante
#8. There's a way of thinking that comes with being an editor that is incredibly useful on the set. It's not just a vocabulary thing or a right-to-left thing or script supervisor stuff. It's a way of thinking about the film and the shots and the way they fit together, what you need and what you don't need, and what you can get away with if you have to. #Quote by Joe Dante
Script quotes by Brian Helgeland
#9. It's always once the script's done in the first two years if it doesn't get going somehow or another, I've never had an old script that someone's made later on. #Quote by Brian Helgeland
Script quotes by Fred Armisen
#10. I wish I was one of those people who could write script after script and pages and pages. I can only aspire to do that. #Quote by Fred Armisen
Script quotes by Charles Dance
#11. Because [writers] Dan Weiss and David Benioff have done such a great job in adapting them, that's what we work with. It serves no purpose to anybody for actors to come onto a set with a well-thumbed copy of the source material and start querying why this or that line has been left out of the script. It's probably been left out for a good reason. #Quote by Charles Dance
Script quotes by Anton Corbijn
#12. I wanted to do a film for a while, but I never found a script that I felt I was going to be the right person for; because if you've never made a film, you're not taught how to make a film, and you feel like you lack skills. #Quote by Anton Corbijn
Script quotes by Ruth Buzzi
#13. I created the characters from what I read in the script. I decided how I should talk, accent, no accent, my own voice, or a created voice. Then, I visualize what I should look like. #Quote by Ruth Buzzi
Script quotes by Shawn Martin
#14. Handsome is page one, but attractive is the whole script. There's a big difference. #Quote by Shawn Martin
Script quotes by Bruce Willis
#15. I've done films where you have to get in shape for purely vanity reasons, when you read a script, turn to page 87 and it says: "Rips his shirt off and casually throws it onto chair" - and you're going to go to the gym the next day because nobody wants to see your big fat arse out there taking your shirt off! #Quote by Bruce Willis
Script quotes by Annette O'Toole
#16. I don't want this big stardom thing. I just want a good script. #Quote by Annette O'Toole
Script quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#17. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Script quotes by Ismail Kadare
#18. I first came across the script for 'Macbeth' between the ages of 11 and 12; it was the first book that shook my life. Because I did not yet understand that I could simply purchase it in a bookstore, I copied much of it by hand and took it home. My childhood imagination pushed me to feel like a co-author of the play. #Quote by Ismail Kadare
Script quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#19. Once again, I had the sensation that everyone else was working off a fully rehearsed script, and I was being asked to improvise. "I just meant - nothing," I said, hoping for a clue on what my line was supposed to be. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Script quotes by Richard Benjamin
#20. If I were an immigrant Latino not born in the US, I could not have written Searching for Whitopia: An Improbably Journey to the Heart of America book. And that is because many of the Whitopians would not have been comfortable talking about their views on immigration, talking about their views on taxes. And they wouldn't have spilled to me the new script on race and poverty as they did. #Quote by Richard Benjamin
Script quotes by Akira Kurosawa
#21. The censors were so far gone as to find the following sentence obscene: 'The factory gate waited for the student workers, thrown open in longing.' What can I say? This obscenity verdict was handed down by a censor in response to my script for my 1944 film about a girls' volunteer corps, Ichiban utsukushiku (The Most Beautiful). I could not fathom what it was he found to be obscene about this sentence. Probably none of you can either. But for the mentally disturbed censor this sentence was unquestionably obscene. He explained that the word 'gate' very vividly suggested to him the vagina! For these people suffering from sexual manias, anything and everything made them feel carnal desire. Because they were obscene themselves, everything seen through their obscene eyes naturally became obscene. Nothing more or less than a case of sexual pathology. #Quote by Akira Kurosawa
Script quotes by Peter O'Toole
#22. I can now tell from the envelope whether or not it is a good script. #Quote by Peter O'Toole
Script quotes by Lukas Haas
#23. I like both music and acting, and they both have a lot in common - timing, immediacy, stuff like that. But acting is more regimented. You wait around for hours, you don't get to write the script, you get hired. Music represents me better. I'm not acting; I'm just expressing myself. #Quote by Lukas Haas
Script quotes by Hector Elizondo
#24. You can trust a Neil Simon script. Every dot. Every dash; that pause means something. He takes all the jokes out, practically. #Quote by Hector Elizondo
Script quotes by Barbara Casey
#25. Carolina removed an old and creased single sheet of paper, yellowed with age, that was now carefully protected in clear, acid-free paper. She handed it to Dara. "This was folded up in a parik-til, in the box with my birth certificate."

"A parik-til?" asked Jennifer.

"It is a small pouch that is filled with things to bring good luck or blessings." She held up the cloth bag and opened it for the girls to see. "Gypsies use them, but so do Native Americans as well as people from Central and South America and other parts of the world. When I got it, I had no idea what it was or what it meant. I knew the folded piece of paper was old and somehow had to be important to me since my birth parents had included it with the other things they wanted me to have." Carolina stood up and walked over to the window. How well she remembered the overwhelming emotions she felt when she first saw those pages of the Voynich Manuscript in the book she was reading, and then realizing that the ancient script was the same as what was on the piece of paper that had been preserved in the parik-til--her parik-til. "Anyway, as soon as I saw the photographs of some of the manuscript pages in the book I was reading, I made the connection immediately. It was the same script as what was on this sheet of paper that I had been given."

All three FIGS crowded closely together to look at Carolina's treasure. #Quote by Barbara Casey
Script quotes by Cameron Crowe
#26. What you believe one day isn't what you believe the next day and I think every writer secretly believes that they may never be able to do write good song or script again, but they can. #Quote by Cameron Crowe
Script quotes by Danielle Brooks
#27. My biggest thing is telling a truthful story, something that is rooted in something and is very honest. If I read a script and you want me to take off my top, and it doesn't serve a purpose, then I'm not going to do it. #Quote by Danielle Brooks
Script quotes by John Rhys-Davies
#28. With a bad script and even the best cast, the most you can hope for is to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. #Quote by John Rhys-Davies
Script quotes by Lena Dunham
#29. When you're writing a script you have the option to embellish on life or switch the order of events or make it generally more cinematic. I would stick too closely to my own experience and not necessarily think about the fact that it needs to have an event happen. Realising that I could channel my own experience into a story that was slightly more cinematic was a very important moment for me - allowing myself to accept that the kind of screenwriting I'm doing is a work of fiction. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Script quotes by David Mitchell
#30. If we could read the script of the future, we'd never turn the page. #Quote by David Mitchell
Script quotes by Joseph Finder
#31. She smiled, nodded, and kept walking. She waved her badge at the proximity sensor, stepped into the revolving door, and entered the cavernous atrium. Right in the center, surrounded by tropical foliage, was a huge bronze globe, the continents sculpted in sharp relief. On the front of the globe, set at a jaunty angle, was the Gifford Industries logo, which couldn't have been more hokey: retro squared-off streamlined script that must have looked futuristic when it was designed in the 1930s. A couple more people waved at her, flashed sympathetic looks, and she ducked into the express elevator to the twenty-fourth floor. She slid her security card into the slot, and the elevator rose. The lights in the executive suite were already on, which surprised her. She was normally the first one in. She passed her prox badge against the sensor until it beeped, then pushed open the glass doors. When she rounded the corner, she saw someone sitting at her desk. Noreen Purvis. 23. #Quote by Joseph Finder
Script quotes by Philip Roth
#32. Was she impersonating someone, acting from a script prepared beforehand? Or
was I dealing with a person who could not be dealt with because she was mad? #Quote by Philip Roth
Script quotes by Cristin Terrill
#33. You say you'll be fine, and I swear I'm shoving you out of this car!" I snap. I hate it when James gets like this, so perversely determined not to be a bother to anyone, like last year when he broke his wrist and insisted on scrawling his equations in an unreadable script with his bad hand rather than letting me write for him. He doesn't see how much I want to be bothered by him, how that means I'm actually important to him. #Quote by Cristin Terrill
Script quotes by Peter Guber
#34. A German shepherd dog could walk in the office with a script in his mouth, and if that script was really good, they'd buy the script. #Quote by Peter Guber
Script quotes by William Monahan
#35. I don't like scripts leaking. On the other hand, the more real attention a script gets, the better. #Quote by William Monahan
Script quotes by Faye Hall
#36. I love you today. I will love you tomorrow. I will love you always. Because when we are reborn, I will fall in love with you again and again and again.
- Faye Hall, from an untitled script #Quote by Faye Hall
Script quotes by Michael Gambon
#37. I have been in five Harry Potter films and never read a 'Harry Potter' book. If you are an actor, all you have is the script you are given. If you read the book, you might get disappointed about what's been left out. #Quote by Michael Gambon
Script quotes by Rian Johnson
#38. I mean, the first 'Back to the Future' is kind of a perfect script, I think, in terms of handling time travel the best. It depends on your definition. To me, that means it effectively uses it in the story. #Quote by Rian Johnson
Script quotes by John Niven
#39. A novel, of course, is a fully self-contained work of art. You pick it up off the shelf, open it, and there it is - a whole universe waiting for you to enter. A screenplay is just a blueprint for making a movie. Until the movie is actually filmed, the script really means nothing. #Quote by John Niven
Script quotes by Jeremy Northam
#40. I'm just a hired actor who was hired for a particular job, but I think one of the joys of reading the script was the way that the personal and the global are woven together. #Quote by Jeremy Northam
Script quotes by Ben Barnes
#41. Almost every script that I've gotten has been for sort of the generic Hollywood type. I haven't chosen them. All the ones I have chosen are because I've been fascinated with the source material or because of the script. #Quote by Ben Barnes
Script quotes by Larenz Tate
#42. What I look for in a script is the plot point and whether they're strong, obviously, or not, whether the characters are rich or not, and if I can do justice to the character or not. Some movies you look at and the script is so bad that no one can do anything with the script. #Quote by Larenz Tate
Script quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#43. If you want guarantees in life, then you don't want life. You want rehearsals for a script that's already been written. Life by its nature cannot have guarantees, or its whole purpose is thwarted. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Script quotes by Victor Pelevin
#44. There's a scientific hypothesis that every person's name is a primary suggestive command that contains the entire script of their life in highly concentrated form ... According to this point of view, there is only a limited number of names, because society only needs a limited number of human types. Just a few models of worker and warrior ants, if I could put it like that. And everybody's psyche is preprogrammed at a basic level by the associative semantic fields that their first name and surname activate. #Quote by Victor Pelevin
Script quotes by Michael Sheen
#45. The first thing, when I read the script, is that I need to care about what happens and feel compelled by the story and engaged by the characters. It needs to resonate with me, even if what the characters are going through is not something that I have experienced in my life. I have to feel like it has some sort of meaning to me. #Quote by Michael Sheen
Script quotes by Matthew Davis
#46. Not knowing what's happening, from script to script, as an actor and as a character, lends itself to the same tension and anxiety of not knowing what's happening. #Quote by Matthew Davis
Script quotes by Jaimie Alexander
#47. I'm probably one of the worst actors as far as preparation goes, because I actually don't prepare. I find it easier to read the script and whatever hits me in my stomach, like deep down, I just go with it. And the director kind of molds me whether to go right or left with it. #Quote by Jaimie Alexander
Script quotes by Sarah Steele
#48. Theater is so precious about each word - not that it's a bad thing, but you definitely never stray from the script. #Quote by Sarah Steele
Script quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#49. You define your own life. Don't let other people write your script. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Script quotes by Tina Brown
#50. Give Obama a script he has made his own, and he is the motivational speaker to end all speakers. Tony Robbins cloned with Honest Abe. #Quote by Tina Brown
Script quotes by Jason Graae
#51. I come in as an actor, having read through the script a few times, made a couple of character-choices, thinking I'm going to be working on it during rehearsals. It's very different. It takes a while we're always like dogs sniffing each other's asses. #Quote by Jason Graae
Script quotes by Steven Moffat
#52. You're guaranteed to be lucky several times in your life-it's what you do with it. Young writers spend all their time worrying, in a way that David Gerrold did not and I did not. How do they get to meet the right people? How do they get to the right parties? If only someone would read my script ... Forget all that. All these things are easy and will happen. The way you get your script to the right people is that you put it in an envelope. It's fucking easy. The difficult bit is writing something that is so good people will take a punt on a brand new writer. That's it-you have to write an absolutely terrific script. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Script quotes by Sylvia Plath
#53. There are a few times when the songs that are written, the poems that are written, the plays that are written, come alive. By accident you fall onto a stage-set put aside for a tragedy for the lesser gods, and you utter words that were in the script written in the leaves and in the grass for some heroic cast. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Script quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#54. As she lifted the glittering strand of diamonds from the box, a small slip of paper fell out. She caught it as it wafted toward the floor. Four words in ancient script, an arrogantly slanted scrawl.
Accept these, accept me.
Well, she thought, blinking, that was
certainly direct and to the point.
-Adam's note to Gabrielle #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Script quotes by Donna Douglas
#55. Back then, it was more or less we couldn't change a line in our script. We weren't allowed to change lines. Today, actors change everything and won't do parts. It's very different today. Back then, the producers were in charge. Today actors are more in charge. #Quote by Donna Douglas
Script quotes by Miranda Otto
#56. If there is a book that the script came from you have to read it, you have to see what you can get out of it: mood, back story and things that may not even be in the film. They kick off your imagination and broaden the character, I think. #Quote by Miranda Otto
Script quotes by Alison Doody
#57. I don't want to work just for the sake of working. Generally, if a good script comes in, I read it, and if it appeals to me, it appeals to me. And it doesn't have to be anything - it doesn't have to be the main character; it doesn't have to be a huge part. #Quote by Alison Doody
Script quotes by Betty White
#58. I'm blessed with learning easily. I've always had a good thing about memorizing quickly, and I just leave the script kind of open somewhere, and as I walk by I'll just take a swipe at it and then go on about my business and pretty soon it sticks. #Quote by Betty White
Script quotes by Nicholas Stoller
#59. It won't be that expensive, the script is fun, the guys just love this thing, and with all of that, the world is just ready for the Muppets again. It's strange that there hasn't been one for so long. I think there were a lot of political reasons for why that was the case but it's just exciting that now it's going to happen. #Quote by Nicholas Stoller
Script quotes by China Anne McClain
#60. On Disney, we stick to the script. But you go to the 'Grown Ups set' and it's completely different. Same thing with Tyler Perry - it's nothing but ad-libbing. #Quote by China Anne McClain
Script quotes by Martin Clunes
#61. Nobody just flops a complete 'Doc Martin' script on the desk. They all have to be taken apart and all the apologizing taken out. Because it's hard to have a protagonist that doesn't really like anyone and nobody really likes him; it's a hard premise to start from. #Quote by Martin Clunes
Script quotes by Edward Norton
#62. For me there's always a line or two in a script, when you hit it you almost decide to do the whole movie off a line or two. You almost do it for the fun of getting to say a line or two like that. I don't have any specific plans, you know. I mean, if Seth Rogen calls with a great buddy pic, I'll be there. #Quote by Edward Norton
Script quotes by Tim McGraw
#63. I didn't want to play a rancher. I didn't want to have a cowboy hat on; I wanted to get away from that in the things I do. But I read the script and fell in love with it. As hard as I tried to say no, I couldn't. #Quote by Tim McGraw
Script quotes by Glen Duncan
#64. Extraordinary what the body remembers. The bones loded with love, grief silting the arteries, fear the bowels' recurring mould. Who would have thought mere flesh and blood could hold so much of psyche's ghostly script? #Quote by Glen Duncan
Script quotes by Stephen Colbert
#65. You are about to start the greatest improvisation of all. With no script. No idea what's going to happen, often with people and places you have never seen before. And you are not in control. So say 'yes.' And if you're lucky, you'll find people who will say 'yes' back. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Script quotes by Kerry Washington
#66. When you leave here today and commence the next stage of your life, you can follow someone else's script, try to make choices that will make other people happy, avoid discomfort, do what is expected, and copy the status quo. Or you can look at all that you have accomplished today and use it as fuel to venture forth and write your own story. If you do, amazing things will take shape. #Quote by Kerry Washington
Script quotes by Richard Ayoade
#67. I only ever privately tell people stuff for the scene. And I often ask what they feel is right. Normally, by the time that we're filming, if it doesn't work, it always the script. #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Script quotes by Penn Jillette
#68. I've been fired from a situational comedy with a script they wrote specifically for me because of my voice. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Script quotes by Margaret Stohl
#69. My solo novel 'Icons' was optioned by Alcon Entertainment, the folks who made the 'Beautiful Creatures' movie, and that's gotten as far as a script, but no news yet. #Quote by Margaret Stohl
Script quotes by Tinie Tempah
#70. I really want to work with Adele, I think she's amazing. Lykke Li as well. I love them both. I'd also like to work with The Script. I met them in Australia and we just got on like a house on fire. #Quote by Tinie Tempah
Script quotes by Tessa Bailey
#71. If Ginger could just be a good enough person for long enough, she could flip the script for Willa, though. #Quote by Tessa Bailey
Script quotes by Daniel Bruhl
#72. When I went to the 'Rush' audition, I was blown away by the script. I thought it was fantastic. #Quote by Daniel Bruhl
Script quotes by Mark Strickson
#73. There are three things that are important for a film. Number one is story, number two is story, number three is story. Good actors can save a bad script and make it bearable, but good actors can't make a bad script good - they can just make it bearable. #Quote by Mark Strickson
Script quotes by Emma Donoghue
#74. With my first book, I was hired to write a draft of the script. I was so young and less confident. They put me through seven or eight drafts and it was just getting worse and worse, and then the film was never made. #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Script quotes by Michael Chabon
#75. What's going to be hard for me is to try to divorce myself as much as possible from what I wrote. I'll have to approach it simply as raw material and try to craft a film script out of it. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Script quotes by Jojo Moyes
#76. My Writers Guild of America card is one of my proudest possessions. I was given it after being invited to write the script for a film of my last novel, 'Me Before You,' which is being made by MGM. Whenever I look at it, I think, 'I'm a Hollywood writer!' #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Script quotes by Amy Sandas
#77. Inside, on a bed of black velvet, lay an exquisite perfume bottle designed from rose-colored glass caged in a silver overlay that twined about the glass like living vines. In the very center of the oval shaped bottle, the silver was formed into the image of a lily in full bloom.
It was likely the most precious and expensive gift Lily had ever been given. She ran her fingertips over the delicate silver work before lifting the bottle from its velvet bed to allow the candlelight to shine through the rose-colored glass.
She noticed then a folded slip of paper still in the box. Setting the perfume bottle in the valley of her lap, she lifted the paper and broke the tiny wax seal.
In his precise, slanted script, Lord Harte had written:


I was unforgivably remiss in not having a gift for you the other night. I chose the elements for this blend myself. It made me think of you.


Lily brushed her thumb over the ink before setting the note back into the box. Then she shifted the bottle and removed the glass stopper. The scent wafting from the bottle was light, but heady. She noticed first the rich notes of clove and honey before her senses were claimed by the smooth, velvety scent of jasmine. Lily closed her eyes, allowing the aromatic infusion to settle into her awareness. There was another element hidden deep within the perfume. A layer of earthiness that warmed her blood. Sandalwood.
Lily was enthralled. It was a complex and lovely #Quote by Amy Sandas
Script quotes by Jenny Slate
#78. I feel nervous when the script is set in stone, and I feel nervous when I feel the script is written for mass consumption because I don't see myself that way. #Quote by Jenny Slate
Script quotes by Zoe Kazan
#79. But my family's really close and I was interested in what Mommy and Daddy did for a living. So when Mommy and Daddy had a script that wasn't totally age inappropriate, they would let me read it. And we would talk about it. #Quote by Zoe Kazan
Script quotes by Peter Enns
#80. Many Christians have been taught that the Bible is Truth downloaded from heaven, God's rulebook, a heavenly instructional manual - follow the directions and out pops a true believer; deviate from the script and God will come crashing down on you with full force. If anyone challenges this view, the faithful are taught to "defend the Bible" against these anti-God attacks. Problem solved. That is, until you actually read the Bible. Then you see that this rulebook view of the Bible is like a knockoff Chanel handbag - fine as long as it's kept at a distance, away from curious and probing eyes. #Quote by Peter Enns
Script quotes by Martin Freeman
#81. I'm just a sucker for a good script. #Quote by Martin Freeman
Script quotes by Sarah Dessen
#82. I think part of the problem sometimes is that there's so much happening in my books, to whittle it down into a single script is hard. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Script quotes by Subhajit Ganguly
#83. Sometimes, in the ancient writing samples found in the Indian subcontinent, we find that a mixture of Harappan and Brahmi features has been used. This definitely points towards a continuous evolutionary process that transformed the Harappan script into the later day Brahmi. This also explains why many of the Harappan signs seem to have been simply carried forward (even in actual form) in the Brahmi script. #Quote by Subhajit Ganguly
Script quotes by Todd Haynes
#84. Once you are shooting a movie, even if it's your own script, you have to let it go at a certain point. That's true for every film. It breaks up into phases where the thing that you have in front of you is the thing you have to address, and you can't worry about what you imagined a scene was going to like and that it came out differently, because that's what you have to make work. #Quote by Todd Haynes
Script quotes by Lilly Singh
#85. Everything I do with my day is related to Superwoman. I'm either doing conference calls or writing a script or reading a script, editing a video, shooting a video. #Quote by Lilly Singh
Script quotes by Dax Shepard
#86. I'm a writer; I've worked as much as a writer as I have as an actor, so I was in a script-note session at Imagine for a TV show I wrote that they were producing, and they happened to say, 'You'd be great as Crosby, do you want to do this show we're doing, 'Parenthood?' #Quote by Dax Shepard
Script quotes by Christopher Nolan
#87. Chris [ Nolan] and I have a strange way of working from the non-movie process, where after all these conversations and reading the script and more conversations, Chris went out and shot the films and the first thing he did, he wouldn't show it to me until I had written the music - not out of meanness, or anything, it just sort of seemed an interesting idea to see if there was some synchronicity and letting me use my imagination to the fullest instead of being constricted by cuts and images. #Quote by Christopher Nolan
Script quotes by David Spade
#88. There are a couple hard things. One, getting a funny idea that people can relate to; a funny idea or a funny script; there's a million pitches. #Quote by David Spade
Script quotes by Simon Pegg
#89. There are a lot of visual marks that have to be hit, and lines that need to be said in a right way - so there wasn't really any improvisation on the set when it came to the bulk of the script. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Script quotes by Melissa McBride
#90. If there's something really, really bothering me about a script, then I'll say something, but otherwise I find my answers in the script. #Quote by Melissa McBride
Script quotes by Miranda Cosgrove
#91. I love making 'iCarly' - it's so much fun, and I love getting the script every week and not really knowing what insane thing I'm going to be doing. It's just like an adventure every episode; that's really fun. #Quote by Miranda Cosgrove
Script quotes by Ariel Winter
#92. Filming a movie is different from a TV show because film is a lot quicker, you get to see the character progress and grow all in one script, and in television, you wait for a weekly update on each character. #Quote by Ariel Winter
Script quotes by Chris Henchy
#93. It's hard to get a great idea sometimes. When you get a good one and you have a good script, you want to keep shepherding it to make it happen. #Quote by Chris Henchy
Script quotes by George Clooney
#94. It's possible for me to make a bad movie out of a good script, but I can't make a good movie from a bad script. #Quote by George Clooney
Script quotes by Jose Padilha
#95. You're looking for the best way of shooting it, but sometimes the best way of shooting it is changing the script. #Quote by Jose Padilha
Script quotes by Harvey Keitel
#96. Well, it's such an intricate, beautiful script about eight professional robbers pulling a heist, and it deals with elements of betrayal, trust, instinct, and need for relationships. #Quote by Harvey Keitel
Script quotes by Todd Phillips
#97. I remember that when I got to NYU, everyone was writing scripts. But I was 18 at the time, and when you write a script, so much of it is about what you pull from life, and this sounds sort of cheesy, but I felt like I didn't have enough life experience at that point to write a movie. #Quote by Todd Phillips
Script quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#98. Suddenly, it seemed there were about a million times he was supposed to have kissed her, even without the benefit of a script, even without any sort of direction. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith
Script quotes by John Cleese
#99. The other person at the Frost Report table to whom I was drawn was one Marty Feldman. I hasten to add that my interest in him was platonic: in fact when I first met him, I was rather shocked by his physical appearance. Dressed only in black, heavily suntanned and very fit, he looked like an Armani gargoyle. This was the script editor? #Quote by John Cleese
Script quotes by Rob Zombie
#100. I can picture certain things in my mind, while writing the script, but then I can also tell that everyone else might be a little confused about what it's supposed to look like at the end of the day. But it all works out. I find a way. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Script quotes by J.R. Ward
#101. He closed his glowing eyes and shook his head. "Yeah. It's fucking stupid. It's crazy. It's dangerous. So it'll fit right into your life script. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Script quotes by Yuliya Snigir
#102. My dream was to play in good films, no matter in what country. I always waited for a decent script, and nothing has changed. I'm just sure that nothing in life is random, and I believe in the fate which guides you. Probably my starring in 'A Good Day to Die Hard' is good proof of that. #Quote by Yuliya Snigir
Script quotes by Mel Brooks
#103. When I'm writing a script, I don't worry about plot as much as I do about people. I get to know the main characters - what they need, what they want, what they should do. That's what gets the story going. You can't just have action, you've got to find out what the characters want. And then they must grow, they must go somewhere. #Quote by Mel Brooks
Script quotes by Jake Schreier
#104. When you are shooting with a robot you can't improvise. You can't really ... the script is kind of the script. #Quote by Jake Schreier
Script quotes by Zadie Smith
#105. When I was 21, I wanted to write like Kafka. But, unfortunately for me, I wrote like a script editor for 'The Simpsons' who'd briefly joined a religious cult and then discovered Foucault. Such is life. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Script quotes by Md. Ziaul Haque
#106. If the director himself writes the script or screenplay of the drama, movie etc., the direction becomes perfect because he already imagined each shot nicely in his brain while writing the screenplay! #Quote by Md. Ziaul Haque
Script quotes by Don Hertzfeldt
#107. You have to leave the window open for better classeas to come along as you go. You can't grow too proud of your script. You have to let the thing shape itself. It guarantees the best classeas will always be used and it also keeps you from going braindead. If you grow bored and uninspired working on something, the audience will be able to tell. #Quote by Don Hertzfeldt
Script quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#108. I'm just an actor. It's the way the script is written, and it's easy. I don't have think about it. When you receive the script, you know pretty well how to play it, apart from little technicalities like the accent. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Script quotes by Richard Ayoade
#109. American television is very much created by the writers, just the volume of it. The writers are so key. You're just trying to do something that serves that script. And in general, film isn't all about the script, really. #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Script quotes by Carolina De Robertis
#110. ...if you don't script your own way once and for all, your story will be written by someone else, and your actions will be guided by other people's dreams of who you should be rather than by the bright jagged thing you really are. #Quote by Carolina De Robertis
Script quotes by Dirk Benedict
#111. Anybody can write a film script 'cuz it has been reduced to a formula. #Quote by Dirk Benedict
Script quotes by Charlotte Church
#112. Since I was 12 or 13, I have been taking movie meetings finding a project right for me because I wanted to try it. Craig gave us the script - it was set in Wales, it is really British humour. I just loved it. #Quote by Charlotte Church
Script quotes by James McAvoy
#113. I still take work if I think it's good. If I like the script, I'll do it. If I don't, I won't. #Quote by James McAvoy
Script quotes by Sydney Pollack
#114. When you work without a script, you are in a sense working in a much more improvisational way than when you are prepared totally. #Quote by Sydney Pollack
Script quotes by Edward Norton
#115. David Fincher is probably the best comprehensive director in terms of being a manger of a process that must drive forward. He has such confident command of cinema language and visual language and script and performance. He knows more about f-stops than any cameraman, he knows more about lighting than any gaffer, he is a wonderful writer, and he can give you a good line reading. Under pressure, he is the kind of guy who you will just dive in with and trust and follow because his vision is so intense. #Quote by Edward Norton
Script quotes by Michael Strahan
#116. Memorizing a playbook is like memorizing a script. When they change the script at the last minute it's like changing a play in a game. #Quote by Michael Strahan
Script quotes by Luke Evans
#117. I felt alive when I read a script and acted out a scene, or sang a song. It was my dream. I'm just very lucky that I'm still doing it and able to earn a living from it. #Quote by Luke Evans
Script quotes by Will Ferrell
#118. On the set of an independent film you can tell that nobody is doing it for the money. Everyone is there because they love the script. A smaller budget sort of unifies everyone; it's a real team effort and that's amazing. But these opportunities just don't present themselves that often for me, so basically any chance I get to do something different I jump on it. #Quote by Will Ferrell
Script quotes by Colm Feore
#119. On '24,' it says on the front page of your script: 'This script is for the production staff and cast. Please don't show it to anybody else.' #Quote by Colm Feore
Script quotes by Holt McCallany
#120. Not all television scripts are created equal. And the process is ridiculous. They send you a script and want you in the next morning. That's not how acting works. You can do anything to me as an actor; I'm a very resilient guy. Just don't rush me. If you ask me to do it immediately with no time to prepare, I know you have contempt for actors. #Quote by Holt McCallany
Script quotes by Helio Castroneves
#121. I don't think I would be a good actor! People enjoyed 'Dancing With the Stars' because I was myself, and every time they told me to say something, I would say my own words, so I don't think I could follow a script well! #Quote by Helio Castroneves
Script quotes by Ty Burrell
#122. Working with an incredibly strong script is the thing that gives you the most confidence. If you go into an episode knowing the script is strong, I just feel like that's where it all starts. All collaborations that happen, in addition to that, are just bonuses, at that point. #Quote by Ty Burrell
Script quotes by Robin Hobb
#123. Well,the fun part of being a writer is that it's like making a wonderful film, with no limit on my budget. I can design the sets, the costume, the lightings, I write the script, and then I get to perform all the roles as I step into each character's skin, zip up, and adopt that point of view. So, to me, they are all compelling and fascinating. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Script quotes by Charles Duhigg
#124. If you need to improve your focus and learn to avoid distractions, take a moment to visualize, with as much detail as possible, what you are about to do. It is easier to know what's ahead when there's a well-rounded script inside your head. Companies say such tactics are important in all kinds of settings, including if you're applying for a job or deciding whom to hire. The candidates who tell stories are the ones every firm wants. "We look for people who describe their experiences as some kind of a narrative," Andy Billings, a vice president at the video game giant Electronic Arts, told me. "It's a tip-off that someone has an instinct for connecting the dots and understanding how the world works at a deeper level. That's who everyone tries to get." III. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Script quotes by Jessica Walter
#125. When I read a script, I have to see the funny, and if I can see it's funny, it helps me to be able to transmit that. #Quote by Jessica Walter
Script quotes by Charles F. Boyd
#126. Too often we assume that what is "best" means that our children should live their lives according to the script that has worked for us. Without realizing it, we try to create carbon copies of ourselves. #Quote by Charles F. Boyd
Script quotes by Johnny Rich
#127. Inhumanity is part of humanity as much as suffering is a part of stories. Cruelty is written in the human script. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Script quotes by Sean Penn
#128. What happens is things come to you - director, script - and if you respond to it, it's because it's tapping into some part of what's inside you, and different roles tap into different parts. #Quote by Sean Penn
Script quotes by Caroll Spinney
#129. When he first started - Jim Henson, who created Bid Bird and Oscar - he said Big Bird was just a big, goofy guy. And it was - a script came along and I said, 'I think Big Bird would be much more useful to the show if he were a child learning all the things we were teaching in the show.' And so he didn't know the alphabet, even, for instance. #Quote by Caroll Spinney
Script quotes by Ellen Burstyn
#130. I sketched out a rough story for them and the director said, well it's a good story but we have the go-ahead from Universal to make this script and did I want to do it. I said no, and they left. #Quote by Ellen Burstyn
Script quotes by Hugo Weaving
#131. If the script grabs me and appeals to me, I'm really very keen to work on it. #Quote by Hugo Weaving
Script quotes by Chadwick Boseman
#132. In television you don't have a lot of time to spend with the role or the script. Typically you get a script a week prior to shooting. Sometimes it's even less time, not enough time to dream about the role. #Quote by Chadwick Boseman
Script quotes by Jacki Weaver
#133. I was sent the script for 'Silver Linings' when I was doing a play in D.C. at The Kennedy Center with Cate Blanchett and I was sent the script and asked if I was interested, and I said 'Oh, boy am I!' #Quote by Jacki Weaver
Script quotes by Carlos Cuaron
#134. When I was writing the script, I knew didn't want to make a sports movie. I was very clear that I wanted to make a sibling rivalry story. So when I was writing the script, the football was getting in the way of the drama. One day, I saw Michael Haneke's Funny Games, which is probably the most violent film I've ever seen - but the violence is off camera. When I finished watching the film, I said, 'Hey, that's what I have to do.' Haneke gave me this solution. #Quote by Carlos Cuaron
Script quotes by Joe Pantoliano
#135. When I got the script for Memento, I read it and I got killed off on page one and I fired my agent. #Quote by Joe Pantoliano
Script quotes by Al Yankovic
#136. I've always known that if I recorded an album, it would come out, and people would enjoy it! Whereas if I wrote a movie script, chances are better than even that I'd just be another guy in L.A. with a movie script in his drawer. #Quote by Al Yankovic
Script quotes by Courtney Solomon
#137. Well Getaway was a script that was submitted to us for production and I read it and thought it would be a cool movie to make. #Quote by Courtney Solomon
Script quotes by Billy Boyd
#138. I really like acting but, just now, the more I read a script I find myself thinking I'd like to direct rather than act. #Quote by Billy Boyd
Script quotes by Wentworth Miller
#139. I certainly learned how to break down a text at Princeton, which helps me break down a script - or at least that's the line I feed my parents when they start wondering where all that good money went. #Quote by Wentworth Miller
Script quotes by Michael Ealy
#140. If I feel like it's a well-written script and if it speaks to me, it's something I want to do. I usually rely on my instincts when it comes to a script. #Quote by Michael Ealy
Script quotes by Esai Morales
#141. I just arrive, they hand me a script and say, do it. #Quote by Esai Morales
Script quotes by Penelope Cruz
#142. When I was 16, I got 'Jamon, Jamon.' Of course, I had to lie about my age. And I had to lie to my parents about the content of the script. #Quote by Penelope Cruz
Script quotes by Kate Del Castillo
#143. For me, I never take a job thinking it's going to grab ratings or that it's even going to be a success. I don't. I just take the job because I love the character. Or I love the script. Maybe I love the director. But whatever I do, I never think about how it will do. That is not in my hands. #Quote by Kate Del Castillo
Script quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#144. Beauty is the only human aspect which cannot be captured on any canvas howsoever hard an artist tries. At the most, the undaunted artist can replicate the beauty on paper but what is a replica in comparison to the original! The humbling resemblance can only be respected, not truly adored.
Beauty cannot be imprisoned in the lens of a camera. The images of beauty are a moment of its essence. Beauty cannot be displayed to evoke pleasure for all on a cinema screen. Those are just its imprints, mere illusions of its existence. Beauty cannot be described by words; it cannot be written or read about. There are no suitable words in all the languages of the world, ancient or modern to hold it between a paper and a pen or a script and an eye. Beauty can only be experienced from far, its delightful aroma can only be tasted through one's eyes and its pleasurable sight can only be felt from the soul.
Beauty can only be best described at its origin through a befuddling silence, the kind that leaves one almost on the verge of a pleasurable death, just because one chooses beauty over life. There is nothing in this world to hold something so pure, so divine except a loving heart. And it is the only manner through which love recognises love; the language of love has no alphabet, no words. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Script quotes by Tony Scott
#145. There's one great script that hit my desk that I didn't change at all, and that was True Romance. #Quote by Tony Scott
Script quotes by JoBeth Williams
#146. I was concerned about doing a sequel and repeating myself. That was before I read the script. #Quote by JoBeth Williams
Script quotes by Howard Gardner
#147. In biology, the most basic assumptions of evolutionary theory elude otherwise able students who insist that the process of evolution is guided by a striving toward perfection. College students who have studied economics offer explanations of market forces that are essentially identical to those preferred by college students who have never taken an economics course. Equally severe biases and stereotypes pervade the humanistic segment of the curriculum, from history to art. Students who can discuss in detail the complex causes of the First World War turn right around and explain equally complex current events in terms of the simplest "good guy-bad guy" scenario. (This habit of mind is not absent from political leaders, who are fond of portraying the most complicated international situations along the lines of a Hollywood script.) Those who have studied the intricacies of modern poetry, learning to esteem T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, show little capacity to distinguish masterworks from amateurish drivel once the identity of the author has been hidden from view. #Quote by Howard Gardner
Script quotes by Clive Owen
#148. I've done a number of things based on real people or true stories or based on books, and I'm a great believer that you have to be true to the script. #Quote by Clive Owen
Script quotes by Callan McAuliffe
#149. I'm not a big fan of training, at all. I really don't like it. I've done a few acting classes and I've just hated them. I think they train you to do something, and sometimes you might not be able to break out of it. Acting is lying, and lying is acting. So, I just prefer to read the script and do it my own way. #Quote by Callan McAuliffe
Script quotes by Beatrice Dalle
#150. I knew her work very well and I knew that if she offered me a role in her movie, it wouldn't be something stupid. So I agreed to do the film before I read the script. #Quote by Beatrice Dalle
Script quotes by Gerald N. Lund
#151. I withdrew a small card from the pouch. The front of it was filled with lines of elegant, hand-lettered script. "What does it say?" Dad asked, leaning forward. "The Four Remembers of Life," I read. "Number one: Remember, you are unique. Number two: Remember, there is purpose to your life. Number three: Remember you are free to choose what you are and what you become. And number four: Remember, you are not alone. #Quote by Gerald N. Lund
Script quotes by Khaled Talib
#152. Writing is the light of imagination playing over shadow of thoughts. #Quote by Khaled Talib
Script quotes by Laura Prepon
#153. I've never played a manipulative, drug-smuggling lesbian before. For me, it's pushing me in an area that's great. There are days when I'd read the script and I'd be like, "Oh, God, I can't believe I have to do that." #Quote by Laura Prepon
Script quotes by Jennifer Aniston
#154. The fun stuff comes when someone is not so strict on sticking to the script. You're allowed the spontaneity, and great moments can happen. #Quote by Jennifer Aniston
Script quotes by Faye Hall
#155. If I could, I would take you with me," he said, his voice barely more than a whisper.
She tried to pull away from him. "You would not. You would grow tired of me in a few weeks."
He shook his head, pulling her tight against him. "No ... I could never grow tired of you."
"How can you be so sure?" she asked.
He brushed tendrils of hair from her face. "I have craved to know you for years ... even just to hear you speak my name ... a single touch of your hand on mine ... "
He kissed her softly, his lips tasting hers. "I want you to be mine ... I want you always."

Script quotes by Douglas Wood
#156. Originality is, for me, the most important quality in a script. #Quote by Douglas Wood
Script quotes by Juliet Marillier
#157. How could you not know?" His voice was full of wonderment. "You changed me utterly. You were like a ... like a bright, wonderful bloom in a garden full of weeds. Like a graceful capital on a page of plain script, a letter decorated with the deepest, finest colors in all Erin. Like a flame, Caitrin. Like a song. #Quote by Juliet Marillier
Script quotes by Juno Temple
#158. I've been involved with some huge studio projects that have been bloody awesome. It all starts with a great script, doesn't it? #Quote by Juno Temple
Script quotes by John Schneider
#159. When a script like 'Hardflip' comes along, with a real depiction of the rewards of a father-son relationship but also the difficulties of building one, you have my attention. #Quote by John Schneider
Script quotes by Jack Nicholson
#160. I look for a director with a script he likes a lot, but I'm probably after the directors more than anything. #Quote by Jack Nicholson
Script quotes by D. A. Pennebaker
#161. You don't necessarily need a script or actors to tell a compelling tale. Finding a person at a key moment in his life and rendering the truth as you see it - that's the truest form of drama. #Quote by D. A. Pennebaker
Script quotes by Lone Scherfig
#162. I haven't done it by myself at all. I've been surrounded by a really, really good crew of all ages. I think it's important to have a good age range in the crew so that some of us have experienced that period, or something close to that. But the script, of course, is really inspiring and you just have to trust that. Sometimes on film a glass can be as big as a car, so if the details are right, then they take up as much space on screen as the streets that we didn't have a chance to show as London really has changed since then. #Quote by Lone Scherfig
Script quotes by Graham King
#163. It [moviemaking] is not really done on a yearly basis. It's about how the material, and when the material comes in. If you develop your material and the script comes in great and you can attach a director and a cast and go off and make it, then I could make, I don't know, six [movies] a year. Or I could make one. It really depends. #Quote by Graham King
Script quotes by Holt McCallany
#164. As an actor, you very rarely have the experience of picking up a script and getting a few pages into it and realizing that what you're holding in your hands is not just a role on a TV show, but it's one of those special parts that comes along, once or twice in a career. If you're lucky, you get an opportunity to do something really memorable and to be part of one of those rare shows that passes into that special category. #Quote by Holt McCallany
Script quotes by Adam Haslett
#165. I took my first pill as soon as I filled the script at the CVS in Copley, a few blocks from Dr. Gregory's office. By the time I'd reach Newton Centre on the Green Line, I couldn't stop smiling. The kind of big, solar smile that suffuses your whole torso, as if your organs are grinning. Soon I began to laugh, at nothing at all, pure laughter, which brought tears to my eyes, no doubt making me appear completely insane to the other passengers. But happier I have rarely been. For that hour and the three or four that followed, I was lifted down off a hook in the back of my skull that I hadn't even known I'd been hanging from. Here was the world unfettered by dread. Thoughts came, lasted for whole, uninterrupted moments, and then passed away, leaving room for others. The present had somehow ceased to be an emergency. In fact, it seemed almost uneventful. Down the tramcar a gaggle of high schoolers snickered at my lunatic ways and I wasn't even ashamed. It was as if their derision moved too slowly through this new atmosphere to reach me with any force. #Quote by Adam Haslett
Script quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
#166. When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say, 'It's in the script.' If he says, 'But what's my motivation?, ' I say, 'Your salary.' #Quote by Alfred Hitchcock
Script quotes by Mark Waid
#167. Comics are expensive. Don't make me resent the money I spend buying yours. Every single moment in your script must either move the story along or demonstrate something important about the characters - preferably both - and every panel that does neither is a sloppy waste of space. #Quote by Mark Waid
Script quotes by Julene Bair
#168. In the dry places, men begin to dream, wrote Wright Morris, who grew up north of here, in Nebraska. Where rivers run sand, something in man begins to flow. I thought I knew exactly what he meant. The sandy beds of dry creeks unfurl evocatively into the beckoning distance, inscribing their faint script over the land. They entice the exploring spirit. #Quote by Julene Bair
Script quotes by David Tennant
#169. When you first read a script is the purest moment. That's when you can understand how an audience will ultimately receive it. The first reading of the script is so important because you're experiencing it all for the first time, and it's then that you really know if it's going to work or not. #Quote by David Tennant
Script quotes by Jordin Sparks
#170. It's funny. When I saw the script in my inbox and it said 'Sparkle,' I thought, 'For real? It's really called 'Sparkle?' I was wondering, too, how does 'Jordin Sparks as Sparkle' sound? #Quote by Jordin Sparks
Script quotes by Christopher Mintz-Plasse
#171. It's always the script first choosing roles. [Then] whoever else is attached. I never like to be the first person attached, because I don't really trust what's going on, unless there's a really good director. #Quote by Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Script quotes by Willowy Whisper
#172. And the kiss?" Her frown was deep, sorrowful. "That was the script, too. I know. But I don't see any difference. You held her like you held me. You even looked at her the same."
"I was acting."
"I know." Tears brimmed her eyes. "That's what I'm afraid of. #Quote by Willowy Whisper
Script quotes by Miley Cyrus
#173. As soon as I read the script for Hannah Montana, I knew it kinda related to me. I wanted to disguise myself as not some celebrity's daughter, just be me and find people that like me for me. #Quote by Miley Cyrus
Script quotes by Theodore Sturgeon
#174. But why write such rotten scripts? If what you say is so, everybody's where they want to be, even beggars with sores on their shins and starving children and guys being tortured in jails?" She nodded, watching me. I said, "I can't accept that."
She waited a bit and then almost smiled. "Unacceptable?" She asked softly.
And that rang a bell. "Unacceptable … 'to accept the unacceptable.' You said that, in the seminar. But I can't remember why you said it."
"Yes you can," she said, and waited. I drew a total blank this time, and I guess she knew it, because she gave me a nudge: "You say you don't belong here. Is 'here' - unacceptable?"
"Yes," I said without hesitation. "Then," she asked, "why did you write this script?" "You mean - the me out there?" She nodded. I thought about that, and then mumbled, "I put it down to - curiosity? That's all. I mean, throwing yourself into imperfect places, into pain and disappointment and well, the unacceptable - it just doesn't make sense."
"It doesn't?"
"It sure doesn't … unless …" I felt my eyes get big. "Unless those, uh, entities want to do what you said - to learn to accept the unacceptable. Even if they have to create it. That doesn't make sense."
"It doesn't? Suppose they can't go on unless they learn that."
"Go on? Go on where?" She shrugs. "Everything living has to go on. Seed to shrub, shrub to tree, egg to bird."
"You mean - evolve. They have to learn to accept the unacceptable in order t #Quote by Theodore Sturgeon
Script quotes by Kiefer Sutherland
#175. What I ended up doing was kind of crafting an idea for a story, presenting it to a writer - a dear friend of mine, Brad Mirman - and he ended up writing a beautiful script. I should've done that a lot earlier. #Quote by Kiefer Sutherland
Script quotes by Alan Arkin
#176. I don't care about names attached to the script. That doesn't matter to me. All things being equal, I would like to work with a good script with a good director, and the part I play is of less important than those two factors. #Quote by Alan Arkin
Script quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#177. I respond to a part just intuitively when I read a script. #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Script quotes by Steve Coogan
#178. I use improvisation as a writing tool to help produce material that goes into a script, but a well-crafted script shouldn't sound scripted, and oftentimes people confuse something that looks like improvisation for what is actually a very well-written script that is well-acted. #Quote by Steve Coogan
Script quotes by Anonymous
#179. Anecdotes coagulate into a script where all voices are the voice of The People, ignoring differences in race, class, and gender. Perhaps this is meant to support the liberal fantasy that more and better democracy will melt away painful antagonisms, or render them peripheral. But this neutral treatment feels bleak, despite the cheerful DIY aesthetic. Where everyone is supposedly a citizen, no one is a person. #Quote by Anonymous
Script quotes by Otsuichi
#180. I couldn't believe that the conversations my family had or the friendly attitudes of the people I knew were genuine. I was certain there had to be a script somewhere – and once, when I was very young, I searched the house for it. I wanted to read the same words everyone else was saying. But there was no script. The only thing that ever felt real to me was death. #Quote by Otsuichi
Script quotes by Paul Mazursky
#181. I wish in my own mind I were more definite - that I was absolutely convinced I'd never direct someone else's script, but I keep reading scripts, because I might find something. #Quote by Paul Mazursky
Script quotes by Emily Mortimer
#182. I decided to give acting a serious, committed try, and soon after, I read the script for 'Lovely and Amazing.' The story was beautiful and honest, and the characters struggled with the same insecurities many women - including me - face. I didn't think I had a chance in hell of being in the film, but I knew I had to go for it. #Quote by Emily Mortimer
Script quotes by Lorrie Moore
#183. This is Quilty's audition ritual: whenever he feels it is time for it, he calls upon himself to audition for love. He has no script, no reliable sense of stage, just a faceful of his heart's own greasepaint and a relentless need for applause. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Script quotes by Deepa Mehta
#184. Once the script is done, I put it aside for a month. I start thinking of all the films that have influenced me, which I have liked for different reasons, and not necessarily the look, but films that have moved me. Some very strange films came to mind. #Quote by Deepa Mehta
Script quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#185. The foremost calling of the human brain is to script a safe, secure, and joyous future for a person. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Script quotes by Dan Savage
#187. Straight people don't have to come out, as heterosexuality is assumed. [ ... ] Young straight people are less likely to question the choices that their families and societies are attempting to make for them. [ ... ]A lot of straight people move through life following a script that others wrote for them. #Quote by Dan Savage
Script quotes by Victoria Legrand
#188. It's always about trying to make everything go with the music, like a script. It's not like, 'Let's have a confetti gun!' If I ever have one of those, it will be because it's absolutely the right thing at the moment in the song. I can't just go get a confetti gun. #Quote by Victoria Legrand
Script quotes by Vanessa Lachey
#189. With acting, when you're reading a script, you're regurgitating someone else's words. There's a whole part of your brain that's off duty. #Quote by Vanessa Lachey

Script quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#194. I am surprised." She scanned the script rapidly. "Th-this is a p-pack of lies!" He looked worried. "Have you always had that little speech impediment?" he asked cautiously. "N-no, it's my souvenir from the Escobaran psych service, and the l-late war. Who came up with this g-garbage, anyway?" The line that particularly caught her eye referred to "the cowardly Admiral Vorkosigan and his pack of ruffians." "Vorkosigan's the bravest man I ever met." Gould took her firmly by the upper arm, and guided her to the shuttle hatch. "We have to go, now, to make the holovid timing. Maybe you can just leave that line out, all right? Now, smile. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Script quotes by Peter Dinklage
#195. Writing is getting killed by too many chefs. Back in the Bogart days, it started with great scripts. You had a writer, and he wrote a script, and that was your movie. I think that's been watered down a bit lately. #Quote by Peter Dinklage
Script quotes by Adam DeVine
#196. When I auditioned for 'Pitch Perfect,' I didn't know it was a singing movie. I didn't read the script. I go to the audition, and I'm like, 'Oh, it's a baseball movie.' But then I'm reading the lines, and I'm like, 'This doesn't seem like a baseball movie.' #Quote by Adam DeVine
Script quotes by Tom Wolfe
#197. The whole other world that LSD opened your mind to existed only in the moment itself - Now - and any attempt to plan, compose, orchestrate, write a script, only locked you out the moment, back to the world of conditioning and training where the brain was a reducing valve #Quote by Tom Wolfe

Script quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#200. There would be,
half a million things,
I could do,
yet I don't know,
what would be so?

When I will see you,
for the first time,
calm, twined in your
daddy's arm,
coming towards me,
I could do,
half a million things-
caress your skin,
fondle your chin,
stroke though your limbs,
smoothly touch your lips,
and make my silent wishes,
for your health and,
your intellect.

Half a million things,
I could do,
yet I don't know,
what would be so?

When I will see you,
for the first time,
I could say,
half a million things-
call you my kid,
read a fine script,
whisper love in your ears,
sing a hymn.

Half a million things,
I could say,
yet I don't know,
what would be so?

I fear though,
what if I am unable to,
do any of this,
and all I end up with,
is,
just a knot of tears,
loaded with,
some of the most pure prayers,
I have ever chaired.

Half a million things,
I could do and
I could say,
yet when it happens,
little will my practice play.

Half a million things,
and I wouldn't know,
how and where one begins. #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
