Dialogue

Dialogue Introduction:  


Day 2 of  Angie and Cassie's 
I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest
Today, February 8th - Dialogue Introduction:  Have two character introduce each other other using only dialogue- no backstory,  no internalization, just dialogue between the two.  Max 250 words.


Mr. Andrew Miciotto:  " I need to be paid, Otis or I cannot continue representing you.

"I've got your money, don't worry about it."

"That's the problem. You've got it. I don't." Andrew replied

"Can you get me off?" Otis asked.

"That's not the point."     

"Maybe it ain't your point, but it's mine. You know what happened to the last person said they could help me, but didn't?"

"I don't give a rat's ass. Otis, pay up or get another lawyer."

" I stuck the bitch till she bled to death."

"Damn it, Otis. How many times have I told you , I don't want to know if you are guilty of this crime. In fact I prefer to not know."

"I ain't talking 'bout this case, man."        

"Your jail house threats don't scare me. You're just mouthing off like you always do. You're all talk. You can either get right with me of I'm gonna withdraw as your lawyer. Que pas?"

" Now you's insulting my manhood. I've done learned me a few things about the law in here. You dis's me like that again, I'm a sue you for defecation of character."

"Defa--- what- of character?"

"You heard me the first time."                    

"Yes I sure did, Otis. Shitting on your character. I will not do that. Now you got my money or I'm telling the judge we have a witness problem and I am off your case."

"What witness-we ain't got no witness problem."          


"Oh, but we do. I cannot locate Mr. Green and without him I cannot go forward.

  11. Oh my gosh, your pictures made me giggle. They added so much to the discussion. Your characters were leaping off the page by the time I finished.

  14. Excellent dialogue. I'm sure as a lawyer you hear funny stuff like this all the time. When I worked as a paralegal, I did, too.

  15. Great development of the scene through the dialogue, it says lots about character and plot without any additional tags and description.

  18. Defecation of character. So funny! Sounds interesting, especially since you know that world you're talking about.

  19. Thanks for stopping by and for hosting this.

  20. Thank you Angie. I am having so much fun reading all the entries. This was a great idea that ya'll had.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just a little bit, okay a lot. Well he is a combination of about four of my clients.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you & thanks for stopping by

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks, Denise. Otis was  actually created based on several of my clieents.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks, Miranda. I often have to bite the inside of my mouth to keep from laughing when I have similar conversartions with my actual clients. Otis is a combination of several of them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you for your kind comment. I am glad you liked it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Mr. Green Part made me think of it as well.  Mr. Green ( the phantom witness) is actually a very real conversation that criminal defense attorneys often have with clients who do not want to pay.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you & I am delighted that you are now following me.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I know. I do hear the funniest & most bizarre comments as I am sure you know all about. Some of them are far too vulgar to repeat.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That actually occured. I better not use it in my wip or I will have a disgruntled client suing me. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks, Denise. An actual client once said that (in a different context than used here), but he used the word in relation of a libel/ slander suit.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks for visiting. That is a real word, used by an actual client (not in the same context as this exchange), but used in reference to a libel/slander suit.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Reading this, it makes me wonder what he did... interesting exchange, it was fun to read.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What great dialogue! I could definitely hear both characters in my head, and I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of either of them ha. The pics are excellent. Fun post!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Snappy dialogue. Sucked me right in.
