Note: subject of Robert's idea for a play
Unsuccessful playwrights Milo and Robert were trying desperately to come up with an idea for a play. Their friend Maddie, also an unsuccessful writer, was visiting them when Milo mentioned an idea he had recently but which he had not yet mentioned to anybody.
Milo said: "I had this idea about the attack of the Zombie Bears."
Robert, the more serious of the writing duo, protested: "Milo, we're discussing good ideas, not your brand of insanity."Milo, not willing to concede that his latest suggestion was unworthy of them working on further, said: "Give me 58 good reasons that Attack of the Zombie Bears is not a good idea."
Robert was exasperated and told his friend: "Give me two hours, a notepad, and a juicebox."
This exchange struck Maddie as so humorous, yet so typical of her two friends, that she told them they should write a play about themselves. They originally dismissed her suggestion as "too meta," but later that is exactly what they did: They wrote a play about themselves writing a play. And the idea for doing stemmed directly from Maddie's response to hearing them discuss Milo's idea for a play about Zombie Bears.
