Hey guys, I was brainstorming some generalized concepts and specific scenarios that might lend themselves to possible Dialogue Tales. Below I've listed main concepts, followed by some possible notes that may help generate new contributions.
* THE GYM: Two characters arrive at the gym and one of them tries to create all these excuses as to why they can't work out and the other character either isn't buying the excuses or just lets their friend ramble because they just don't care.
* SHOPPING: This idea could go a lot of different ways. It could be involve a married couple discussing a big purchase, a kid trying to finagle an expensive toy for their birthday present, or an exchange between a salesman of a product and a skeptical consumer.
* FENDER BENDER: Two people could get in a minor fender bender at an intersection and have very different opinions on whose fault the accident is.
* COPS ON THE SCENE: A police officer could come to a house based on a report of loud noise and chaos. And while the homeowner(s) are denying any such action, the cop could be making observances about what he sees and hears during the conversation that suggest something super shady is going down.
* MOVIE AUDITION: An eccentric director could be trying to give directorial notes to an actor auditioning for a role and the situation the actor is pretending to be in could be outlandish and impossible to perform.
* DOCTOR'S OFFICE: A routine check-up could begin to induce paranoia really quickly as the doctor begins to subtly suggest minor observations are severe health risks. And the person being examined begins to get really scared while the doctor calmly hypothesizes severe diagnoses.
* LOUSY TOUR GUIDE: A tour guide could have terribly wrong facts and, when he's questioned by one of the people on the tour, he could elaborately deflect their correct claims and stick to his own misguided facts.
* BLIND DATE: Two friends enter a bar or restaurant in search of the blind date one of them has. They begin to analyze each patron of the bar from afar in a very condescending fashion. Simultaneously they devise a bail-out plan if the date ends up not being appealing.
* LOST FISHING BOAT: A drunk and disorderly fishing boat captain could begin heading way off course and not listen to his first mate, even though the terrain they're venturing into is clearly wrong and possibly dangerous.
* PASTRY SHOP: A picky customer could verbally dissect and analyze each pastry on display in order to find the perfect one. The other character could be an annoyed cashier who is trying to keep the line moving along.
