Classic Soap Fan
Gawd. Soaps have done this for years (Days especiall). Each scene is roughtly 3-5 lines with the first two lines repeating the last two lines of the previous scene the characters were involved in.
John: Mary, are you trying to tell me that Jane is really little Suzi's mother?
Mary: Yes, John, I am. Jane had your baby and then gave it to me to raise.
John: But... but why?
Jane: (Enters) What... what's going on here? (Hold on Jane's confusion as we cut to...)
And then we come back to the scene.
Jane: I asked you what's going on here. Aren't you going to answer me? John? Mary?
John: Mary just told me that you're Suzi's real mother, Jane. Is it true?
Jane: What? Mary, how could you?!
Mary: Jane, you have to believe me. I didn't have a choice. I had to tell the truth.
John: Is it the truth? Jane?
Jane: I... I... (hold on Jane's panicked expression as we cut to...)
Wash, rinse, repeat.
