Who says you only get 15 minutes of fame? Learn about becoming famous a second time in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:27 Explanations: 3:51 Fast dialog: 14:56 Eileen: What are you doing with all that band equipment? Dex: The guys in the band are planning a reunion. It’s time for our comeback. It will be the stuff of legends! Eileen: Aren’t you afraid of being called has-beens after all these years? Dex: Bite your tongue. There is a groundswell of support for this reunion and we’re not going to disappoint the fans. Eileen: Groundswell? Are you referring to that local news article about one-hit wonders asking, “Where are they now?” Dex: There was a lot of good response to my quote about our possible reunion. After a 20-year hiatus, I think fans are ready for more music from us. It should lead to a tour. Eileen: Resurrecting your music career might be harder than you guys think. Dex: Stop being such a killjoy. This reunion could lead to an entire new generation of fans. Eileen: Or you could become the laughingstock of the music world. Dex: Okay, that’s enough. You’re officially out of the band. Eileen: I didn’t know I was in the band. Dex: I had considered making you a backup singer, but I can’t deal with your negativity. Eileen: Oh, poor me. I’ll never find stardom. Dex: You’ve had your chance! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
