Can it be true? A "Jericho" movie!

Margie: Edna, do you remember when all those nice folks came to town and made that TV show called Jericho? We met that lovely Jennie Sword and April Parker-Jones and all those other lovely people.

You aren't going to believe what I found out today at the beauty parlor. Guess, Edna.

Edna: Did they finally get up the nerve to tell you that your hair is falling out? Because I've been telling you that for years and you never believe me.

Of course I remember that TV show, you ninny! Now, just tell me what you found out, I can tell that you can hardly contain yourself.

Margie: I'm ignoring your insults today, prune lips. That's because I'm happy since Jericho is going to be a movie. It'll be on the big screen, Edna.

I just know they're going to want us in the movie so who do you want to play the part of you?

Edna: A movie! Oh Margie, that's wonderful news. Why, I'd want to play myself, of course. First of all, no other actress could do me justice (except for maybe Dame Judi Dench, but I doubt she could lose that accent and sound like someone from Kansas). And secondly, you know I always aspired to a film career but Mama and Daddy never approved. Now's my chance!

Margie: Edna, I'm playing myself because I want to do some love scenes. That's what I'm best at doing. Maybe I'll have one with that young Skeet or Brad Beyer. Maybe I'll just have a love scene with all the gentlemen.

We'd best get on the phone to that Mr. Turteltaub and tell him we want to play ourselves before he replaces us. Go call him, Edna.

Edna: Margie, I truly don't understand how you can keep calling me a hussy when you say such scandalous things! I think I will go call Mr. Turteltaub, but believe you me, I'm telling him not to let you near any of those nice young men. You don't want his best actors fleeing the set, do you?

Margie: They can flee to the basement, Edna. What fun that will be. Go call him.

Edna: All right, all right, I'll call. Get off my back, woman! I'll tell you this right now, I'm asking for my own trailer, because I am surely NOT sharing one with you. And before you go getting any fancy ideas, Mr. Skeet won't want you sharing his, either.

Jericho fans got some good news last month when rumors surfaced about a possible "Jericho" movie in the works. We don't want to get our hopes up too high, but we are mighty excited about it nevertheless!

I don't get it.

Are we in a TV show now and talking about possibly being in a movie or are we in a town about which they made a TV show and now might make a movie?

Are there actor's playing us or are we playing ourselves?

Margie: Cousin T, only you could play yourself. Don't worry yourself about anything else.

I am excited about this wonderful news. I can't wait to see you on the big screen.

I knew you guys were celebrities...I can't wait to see pics from the set!

w00t! I would love to see you ladies in the flick.

I was thinking maybe Kathy Bates and Meryl Streep could play the two of you. Or maybe more like a Thelma and Louise pair. If you find a way to get Skeet to share his trailer, I'll volunteer to be your personal assistant (live-in, of course.)

They would be quite remiss if they didn't include you two lovely ladies in this film.
