Thanks for catching the omission of Falling Idols on the Cameras page, I forgot that one! --MisterGlass 22:35, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up on the home page typo! --Missyjack 09:46, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know how to use these Talk pages, so this is experimental, but I like to keep the transcripts in standard American English - so "caroling" was correct, as was "all right", as was the punctuation in a couple of spots. --zebra363

Also, if you want to do the transcript any week and and can do it quickly, just let me know and I won't start it. --zebra363

Hi again,

I don't spoil myself for episode titles, so I don't know which episode "Party On, Garth" is. If it's tomorrow's, you can do it if you want, or I'll do this one since I have plenty of free time this weekend, and you take the next one (April 20) when I'll be overseas!

Re the punctuation issue, every American style guide I can find says periods and commas should always go inside the quote marks, even in cases such as: My mother's name is "Rita." (An example from one of the sites.) I think it may be done differently in the UK, but as I said I try to keep the transcripts to American English. (I'm Australian myself.) If you can find me a well-regarded American style guide that says the period should go on the outside, I'll do it that way! Most American authorities seem to consider "all right" preferable to the alternative, so I'm sticking with that one, I'm afraid.

Thanks for identifying those Cas flashback scenes. I've been thinking that I'd like to try to fill in the blanks in the Swan Song flashbacks, but they're hard!

Cheers, Kris --Zebra363 05:18, 30 March 2012 (PDT)

I just found a website that made me laugh: (from

In the United States, periods and commas go inside quotation marks regardless of logic.

In the United Kingdom, Canada, and islands under the influence of British education, punctuation around quotation marks is more apt to follow logic. In American style, then, you would write: My favorite poem is Robert Frost's "Design." But in England you would write: My favorite poem is Robert Frost's "Design".

I totally agree with you that the latter makes more sense, but since it's an American show I try to do things the American way. (Though if you read the first few transcripts I did, they're full of Australianisms that I'll go back and fix one of these days!) --Zebra363 05:28, 30 March 2012 (PDT)

Nice job on the Swan Song flashbacks! I'll have another go at them myself when it's not new episode day. It would be good to do the Exile on Main St. montage too -- I love that one and it should be much easier since it's slower! --Zebra363 19:29, 30 March 2012 (PDT)

Hi, I'm home from overseas now and am wondering whether you are working on the 7x19 transcript, or whether I should go ahead and do it. If I'm going to do it, I'd like to finish it before this week's episode airs. --Zebra363 02:13, 24 April 2012 (PDT)

I assume you're busy this week, so I'll go ahead and do the 7x19 transcript. I've got some time today and tomorrow. Cheers. --Zebra363 01:10, 25 April 2012 (PDT)
