Jerry Coleman: This is the beginning of the transcription, so I am labeled with my full name.
John Gale: All right, but after the first time you will be labeled with only your first name, right?
Jerry: Correct. As you can see, I am labeled with just my first name now and will be labeled the same throughout the transcript.
Man 1: Hi, I'm a new speaker. No one ever mentions my name, so the transcriber should simply give me a descriptive name. Here, the only information that can be gathered on me is that I'm male. So in this case I'm Man 1, but if there were two unidentified men, I'd be Man 2.
John: [sarcastically] Awesome.
John: Oh, hey, wait, come back! Oh, for crying...Did you see that?
John: Whereâs he going, is he...
Jerry: ...No use. I think you offended him. Maybe by a lot.
Announcer: You're listening to "The Interview Example"! Enjoy.
John: Hey, are you cutting us off?
John: Come on, itâs none of your business, studio audience.
Audience Member: [foreign words]
John: Whoa. I think weâre not speaking the same language. This gets weirder all [xx]...
Interviewer: Welcome to "The Interview Example." Today I'll be interviewing an important man about [?] something vague, to help you understand further how to work with dialog.
Professor Dave: I'm glad to be able to help.
Jerry: I feel like Alice, except I never saw the looking glass. Whereâs the bottle that says, "Drink Me"?
Interviewer: Letâs just ignore those guys. Itâs our turn in the studio.
Professor Dave: OK.
Interviewer: All right. Would you like to tell me about your journey to discovering the square root of -2?
Professor Dave: [laughs] Iâm sorry, what?
Interviewer: Oops. [laughs] Oh, wait, these arenât the questions I had prepared for you.
Professor Dave: I hope not. All I remember from college math is my professor stating that "The area of a trapezoid is A = (B + b)h/2," or something like that. Never could figure out why he had to have both B and b, but thereâs a reason Iâm a humanities professor!
Interviewer: Well then, youâve got me beat, Professor Dave.
Professor Dave: Oh, I think that equation might be the only thing I remember. That and maybe the particular way that the light used to hit Jenny [sp] Amesâ long, blonde hair. Do you have memories like that from high school?
Sure hope Iâm not going all TMI on you. But in lieu of...
Professor Dave: Yikes, I think weâve got trouble. Is that a Molotov cocktail?
Interviewer: Uh-huh. Run!...
