Maybe the Archduke Dreamt the Whole Thing

DAVID: I get more annoyed each other time I watch Prometheus

SCOTT: Sometimes at night I lie awake just hating it.*

DAVID: Yeah there's more to hate each time, all of which make me hate lindelof

SCOTT: he is a terrible human being--i mean, say what you want about World War One, but at least it made sense

DAVID: Agreed, and ww1 had a badass sequel. The only thing that could follow this trash would end up being as disappointing as the final season of lost

SCOTT: Dude! Maybe the planet was just space jockey purgatory--and the first space jockey went there after the beginning when he died

SCOTT: And since the one thing he never got to do in life was get deep throated by a giant leech, once that happened he got to go to heaven

DAVID: I would be more satisfied with that.  Perhaps everything lindelof writes is about purgatory but he always has a change of heart half way through the filming

SCOTT: Like a really douchey Dante.

DAVID: The seven circles of shitty writing

SCOTT: circle one, name people after famous philosophers to simulate depth

SCOTT: circle two: vague references to Christianity

SCOTT: Circle three: physically shit on your script

DAVID: Circle four: metaphorically shit on ur script

DAVID: Circle five: replace rationality with irrationality in all possible circumstances,

SCOTT: Circle six: again, physically shit on your script

DAVID: 7: repeat 3, 4, and 6

SCOTT: Ha, epic!

*An allusion to Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898). Very tricky to do in casual texting.

Non-Inclusive Us

ME: [interrupting shouting between boss and coworker] Guys, guys, guys! Some of us are trying to work here! Well, not me obviously... so not "some of us" as much as "some of them..." Anyway, "some of them" are trying to work!
