run more or less as follows:
have an A story and a subsidiary, or B, story (and sometimes a C story
as well), which are "broken" across a "teaser" and two acts.
should have three laughs to a page
- No character
can leave a room without saying something funny
- A scene
should end with a 'zinger' that should send everyone into the commercials
laughing. (For example, two characters ask the boss for a raise, the
boss yells and storms out, and one character says brightly, "Well, that
went well.") This is the "button" or "blow" to the scene.
