Leaked conversations from the Blagojevich case make for a pretty nice dialogue study...
(edit: Okay so it's not real... it's still funny)
leaked transcript of a conversation between Rahm Emanuel and Rod Blagojevich from November 10th, 2008 - 12:42 PM Eastern Time.
RAHM EMANUEL: This is Rahm.
ROD BLAGOJEVICH: Hey Rahm, yeah it's Rod.
EMANUEL: Uh-huh. What's going on governor, I'm busy.
BLAGO: Well, it's about that Senate appointment...
EMANUEL: We already gave you the list of people we like.
BLAGO: Yeah, I been looking the list over. Interesting names. Good
people. How's the transition going?
EMANUEL: It's going fine, governor. Are you calling to ****ing tell
me anything, or what, cause I--
BLAGO: No no, I'm just wondering if you have all your picks already
made. I heard something about Dashle for HHS--
EMANUEL: I'm not gonna discuss ongoing deliberations, gov, you know
BLAGO: Hey, come on Rahm, let's not act like I'm a stranger here.
EMANUEL: Did I call you a stranger? If I thought you were a
stranger, you think I'd be interrupting my important ****ing business to
take this ****ing phone call?
BLAGO: Hey you don't have to get curt with me, Rahm.
EMANUEL: This isn't me being curt, Gov, this is me being ****ing
busy. Now what did you call about?
BLAGO: I'm just feeling you out, seeing if Valerie [Jarret] still
wants that Senate seat, just wondering what kind of priority that is for
EMANUEL: Actually, it's not a priority. Valerie's had second
thoughts about the job.
BLAGO: What, she doesn't want it anymore?
EMANUEL: She's having second thoughts. You want more details, you
BLAGO: She won't take my calls.
EMANUEL: Big ****ing surprise.
BLAGO: What's that supposed to mean?
EMANUEL: Um, I don't know, what's it supposed to mean governor? A.)
You're a ****ing crook. B.) You're a ****ing *******. C.) All of the above.
BLAGO: I'm clean Rahm, you know this. You think that ****ing
Fitzgerald would being twiddling his ****ing thumbs if he had **** to go on?
EMANUEL: I gotta go, Gov. You appoint who you want, we really don't
give a ****.
BLAGO: What if I appoint Valerie, what if she takes it?
EMANUEL: What do you want me to say? We'd appreciate it, I'm not
gonna ****ing kiss your ring over it.
BLAGO: "Appreciate it"? Come on, this is a senate seat we're
talking about. It's worth a **** of a lot more than appreciation.
EMANUEL: You asked us for a list, we gave you a ****ing list, you
want to make your own list then make your own ****ing list. [Raising
voice] But if you're asking for anything else from me, or Barack, or
Valerie, then you can ****ing stop talking right now Rod.
BLAGO: Wait a sec there Rahm. Wait just a ****ing minute. Who are
you to talk to me like that? I ****ing made you.
EMANUEL: You made me? You made me? Tell me you're ****ing joking.
BLAGO: No no no, you listen to me ****-face. You see this list I
got, the names mother****ing Obama ****ing wants for the Senate. I just
ripped it in two. How you like that? Oops, Harris just dropped it in the
HARRIS (muffled): Yes sir?
BLAGO: Did you just drop that list in the shredder?
[Whirring, shredder noise]
HARRIS (muffled): I did.
EMANUEL: Do you have me on ****ing speakerphone?
BLAGO: It's in the shredder, Rahm. The list is bye bye.
EMANUEL: Hold on a sec -- you got me on ****ing speakerphone? Who
the **** do you think I am?
BLAGO: Who are you Rahm? Who are you? You're ****, you hear me?
Don't come back to Chicago Rahm, it's not your town any more.
EMANUEL: Pick up the phone Rod.
BLAGO: I'll put someone in the senate who will ****ing **** you. I
might even put myself in there, how you like that Rahm? How you gonna
explain that to ****ing Barack, every time he's gotta call me up for my
****ing vote. He'd have to take my calls then, wouldn't he?
EMANUEL: [Screaming] I said pick up the ****ING phone!
BLAGO: [Picks up phone, speakerphone off] I got your attention now,
EMANUEL: Shut the **** up and listen to me for one second Rod. And
I want you to listen carefully, because this is the last time I'm ever
going to talk to you. You are ****ing dead to me. You been ****ing dead
to Barack since '06, now you're dead to me. Know what that means? That
means you're dead to my people in Chicago, Daley on down, and all these
friends you think you have aren't gonna touch you with a ten foot
BLAGO: Oh now you're the ****ing Godfather? **** you.
EMANUEL: No **** you. **** you. **** you.
BLAGO: **** you!
EMANUEL: Listen up *******. The ****'s gonna hit the fan, maybe
tomorrow, maybe next month, and when Fitz finally brings down the hammer
it's gonna be my name that's going through your head. You won't know the
hows or the ****ing whys, but it's gonna have my ****ing fingerprints
all over it. Have a great life fatso.
BLAGO: Hey ****--

Re: Wiretap dialogue
Format is incorrect. Missing scene heading. WTF are Rahm Emanuel and Rod Blagojevich? Are they V.O. or O.S.? You need to read more scripts until you understand the nuts and bolts of screenwriting.
