I just saw Fired Up! the movie. Some of the dialogue is very much an inspiration for the kind of comedy writing I want to do. In particular, repeating this 3 times:

Angela: What?

Nick: What?

3 times? That seems excessive, but it works in the movie.

Shawn: What to the panthers have that you don’t have?

Sylvia: Skills.

Bianca: Athletics-isms?

Caryl: Kick-ass cheers.

Sylvia: Laser hair removals?

Angela: Big ass titties!

Bianca: Hm?

Sylvia: What?

Angela: Well, I’m just sayin’.

Shawn: CONFIDENCE! They’re cocky-ass holes! Like Nick, he’s the cockiest ass hole in the football field, that’s he’s so good.

Nick: He’s right, I’m awesome.

Shawn: Because he believes in himself.

Nick: Also, ’cause I’m awesome.

Shawn: He knows he’s gonna be good. So, he’s good, and he takes chances.

Nick: Not hard due to the fact, that I’m awesome.

Shawn: NICK! I’m trying to make a speech here.

Nick: I’m sorry.

Shawn: Either bet big, or go home.And if you don’t wanna take any chances, then you shouldn’t even be here! I know you wanna be here because you finish last every single year but you still keep comin’ back! Even if it means taking endless shit from total dongknockers like the Panthers!

Angela: I wanna cut the blonde one!

Nick: What?

Angela: What?

Nick: What?

Angela: What?

Nick: What?

Angela: What?

Nick: What?

Angela: Well, I’m just saying.

Shawn: Alright, come on guys, let’s be cocky ass-holes!

Carly: Yeah, you know what? He is right! And I can say that because I am the best cheerleader here! SO, you can all suck my dick!

SquadHuh? What?

Carly: Oh, I was just being a cocky ass hole.

Squad: *luaghs*

Shawn: OH! Nice, nice. I totally believed that. Look, did you see what she was doing there? That’s exactly what I want from everybody. Alright, let’s do this, huh? And remember, you’re all awesome. Let’s risk it to get the biscuit.


Squad: *cheers*
