I really don't know why they have that "Clear form" button. I was just putting the finishing touches on my post when I hit that accidentally. A lot of work down the drain. Oh well, let's try this again...
Hope you enjoyed that little look at Hobbes' previous life and love in Seperation Anxiety. Hobbes is such a great character that it's always fun to find out more about him. Some excellent twists and turns along the way made it a fun episode.
Here's some little items....
* At last we know what The Official and Eberts do during their spare time. Lines often don't survive from first to final draft in scripts, however, I was thrilled that the "That Bitch" line made it through.
* We also see a little bit of animosity between Hobbes and Eberts. Originally, the script call for Hobbes to call me a "Pencil-neck". I don't really have a Pencil-neck so Paul embellished the script as only he could. Both Paul and I were happy to find something to work with in our relationship.
* The TV was never plugged in. Mimi Leder, our wonderful script supervisor provided the voices on set. They were later dubbed in.
* also dubbed in were my lines on the phone. Originally we thought it would be funny if after I picked up the phone I would simply listen, then hang up. Fortunately, somebody up the food-chain realized that didn't make any sense, so I dubbed in those lines later.
* Paul had one tricky line that really proved to be a tounge-twister. Many a take he'd make it through effortlessly only to stumble at the very last couple of words. It is a testament to his skill and talent that he did make it through and got the line out perfectly. On the episode it was about 3 seconds long.
* I had to shoot the hallway scene about 5 days before Hobbes and Darien. The reasons I may reveal later.
* VVSB'ers: This week or next....
Well, I have a bad head-cold right now so I'm increasingly aware that this might not make any sense. As always, thank you for watching.
