Jack Buggit:
. . I need a reporter. And you'll do local car wrecks. Take the picture, write the story. We run a front-page photo of a car wreck every week whether or not we actually hav a a car wreck. Now, there's a knack for taking photos that make you feel something. If there's a dark patch on the ground it reads blood whether it's motor oil or Diet Coke.

Billy:
It's finding the center of your story, the beating heart of it, that's what makes a reporter. You have to start by making up some headlines. You know: short, punchy, dramatic headlines. Now, have a look, what do you see?


[Points at dark clouds at the horizon]



Billy:
Tell me the headline.



Quoyle:
Horizon Fills With Dark Clouds?



Billy:
Imminent Storm Threatens Village.



Quoyle:
But what if no storm comes?



Billy:
Village Spared From Deadly Storm.

Quoyle:
[reading the newspaper] This is from the "News of you Neighbors" column. "The pole on the corner of Main and West Streets has a sign on it that says it's illegal to place anything on that pole. We see the postman has landed in the clink for throwing the mail in Killick-Claw Harbor. He said he had too much to deliver and the folks could just take a dip and help themselves. Guess it helps if you can swim."



Quoyle:
This is professional stuff. How am I supposed to write this?
