Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

Forgot to do this last week, so this is a double.

First up, Eternity (Angel season 1).

"Cordelia and Wesley deconstructed Cordelia destruction of the part of Nora, in this exchange cut due to length:

WESLEY: I've always regarded Nora ass one of the seminal characters or late-nine-teenth, early-twentieth-century literature.
CORDELIA: Yeah, but I thought I managed to breath a little life into her, anyway - (drinks) - you have to train for a tour de force like this, lots of water, lots of power walking.
WESLEY: Yes, I, uh, don't recall seeing Ibsen's Nora portrayed as a power-walker before.
CORDELIA: I brought that to the part, the director was, like, clueless."

And second, Sanctuary.

"KENDRICK: Come on, Kate. Everyone knows you've gone all Scully. Anytime one of these weird cases crosses anyone's desk, you're always there. We used to be friends - what's going on with you?
KATE: Scully's the skeptic.
KATE: Mulder's the believer. Scully's the skeptic.
Down at the precinct, Kate gets hassled by fellow officer, but she corrects his X-Files reference."
