The first rule of improv is always say “Yes, and” I see a dog stick its head out the window to feel the breeze and that seems pretty alright to me “Yes, and” I’m watching softball on ESPN2 These girls are thick and somber “Yes, and” The mall is quiet in the evening You know that stoned Hot Topic employee must have a mad dream of freedom What’s yours? If I could, I would remove my skin and have you spread it out on the counter with a rolling pin “Yes, and” We could make shapes together and bake them I may regret this a lot later “Yes”
Thinking is mostly just a process of associating, in case you didn’t know “Yes, and” So now you do “Yes, and” Go ahead and think about
whatever your want “And?” Everything will you remind you of something “Yes, and” If either of us poured the contents of our minds out onto the dining room table and sorted them out, we would find ourselves to be such a horrifying mess of contradictions we would probably make a secret arrangement to never speak of this incident again and live the rest of our lives in shame “Yes”
You’re so lucid when you aren’t afraid
Did you know how smart you are
