Mtr Ht James, thanks for stopping by. lie been wondering where the idea to ALWAYS have a character yell “Go, go gril" in
your movies came from. Did it start as a conscious thing or did you notice it later and just continue on?

ll’ Oh, it must just be the way I talk! In fact ijust wrote a scene yesterday where a character says “Go Go Go!“ The page
is open on my computer right now.
First of all, people do that in the military. The reason for it, especially over radio comm, is that people can inadvertently
stop a transmission, so f something is really important, you say it three times. which is why when I do my deep
dives, I would always say "Release, release, release" so there was no doubt in case the communications got stepped
on by another transmission or interference.
I' m going to go change that scene now. Nobody wants to be predictable.
