What is script?

Famous quotes containing the word script:

    I long to create something
    that can’t be used to keep us passive:
    I want to write
    a script about plumbing, how every pipe
    is joined
    to every other.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    If it’s a good script I’ll do it. And if it’s a bad script, and they pay me enough, I’ll do it.
    George Burns (b. 1896)

    Genghis Khan, in his usual jodhpurs accessorized with whip, straddled a canvas chair and gloated upon the fairyland he had built. Journalists, photographers, secretaries, sycophants, script girls, and set dressers milled and stirred around him, activity ... irresistibly reminiscent of the movement of maggots upon rotting meat.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
