Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 2:52 Fast dialog: 13:52 Russell: Hey, LeeAnn, you were an English major, right? LeeAnn: Yes. Russell: Could you proofread this for me? LeeAnn: I don’t know. Do you want me to proof it for content or for structure? Russell: For everything. LeeAnn: So you’re asking me to fact check all of the facts and figures and to parse each line to find any spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors. Russell: That’s right. I used the spell check on it, but some typos may have slipped through. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were riddled with other errors, too. LeeAnn: Right. What about the formatting? Russell: Check that, too. You can edit out the errors as you go along. LeeAnn: You want me to proofread and edit it? Russell: Sure, if you don’t mind. LeeAnn: You do realize that this is a 400-page document, right? Russell: Is there a problem? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
