Cast: Director, 2 Workers, Cameraman, Clapperman, Light Man, Soap
Setting: On the Setting of a Movie
Director: Okay, people! Remember what I said about the language! Action!
Clapperman: Scene 5, Take 1!
Worker 1: (Eating lunch with #2) You know, Gerry, the wife is always nagging me for some more money. And I just don't have it.
Gerry: I know what you mean. The (DARN) kids are always …
Director: Cut! What did I say about the language? You know the rules … soap in the mouth. (Pantomime director washing out Gerry's mouth with soap.) Okay, let's try that one again. And watch the language!
Continues the same way, but each time something happens where a different person says "Darn" -- clapperman gets fingers caught in clapper (don't do the whole scene over again, of course,) cameraman trips while filming, light person drops light, #1 says "the darn wife …" Finally, the director is about to start the scene again when he looks at his watch.
Director: Oh darn. Look at the time …
