Movie PitchesEdit


Elliott: Now, should we talk about what happens in this movie?
Dan: Well, I think you could probably imagine what happens in this movie.
Hallie: I don't think so.
Elliott: All we've said is: a jukebox musical with '80s power ballads.
Hallie: I didn't imagine what happened in that...
Dan: Imagine that somebody is trying to construct a musical comedy around the existing songs, and then just imagine the generic plot that that would be. And that's pretty close to what it—
Elliott: Okay, so let me try to guess it. A caveman and an astronaut fall in love at a discotheque. Suddenly, a volcano erupts. It turns out that the Babylonian god Bel Marduk is angry. They're gonna have to find five magic gemstones, each of which is buried inside of a different famous singer's brain...

Elliott: You see those videos online of evangelical exorcisms and stuff like that. Usually the demons want to make people gay—
Dan: Yeah.
Elliott: — and that's what they exorcise out. And it's like...demons: is that the, that's the most damage you could think up?
Hallie: Yeah, demons: you gotta get with the times!
Dan: Usually they exercise it by inserting a penis into a butthole, you know.
Elliott: Oh, Dan.
Dan: I'm just saying!
Elliott: Dan, this is a family podcast.
Dan: Is it? I've been doing it wrong all these years!
