It Only Takes A Word: A "Fangirl" Parody

Based off of "It Only Takes a Taste", from the musical WAITRESS


This is not used for profit, but instead to spread joy amongst fellow bookworms.

NICK:

You know what's kind of funny? Just seeing you sitting here all by yourself with your laptop. You remind me of someone I once knew.

God, by now she's well in middle age. Probably 41. 42.


CATH:

Huh. Thank you?

NICK:

What? Oh my god! No! No! No! No!

She was a teacher at my school, taught me how to write, which is cool.

Nice teeth and small hands.

And snuck me goodies I couldn't get to then.

But she was sweet too.

Reminds me of you.


CATH:

Hmm. Oh well no one ever really notices me that way so...

NICK:

Well I did right?

CATH:

Hmm?

NICK:

Yah, because you’re here with... with me. She'd write new stories every day. Like you I guess,

But I must say

if scenes were books, yours would be Shakespeare's letters.

You remind me of her,

but better.

It only takes a word when it's something special.

It only takes a word when you know it's good.

Sometimes one word is more than enough

to know you want more of the thing you just got a word of.

CATH:

That reminds me of a thing we would say.

Me and my sister in our bedroom when we'd write.

She'd say "Cath, you can tell the whole story with one word."


NICK:

Yah. No, that's exactly what I mean.

I swear that as all those scenes mixed and melted

I could hear the sirens sing.

It was truly something special.

One word and I want the whole thing.

I must say it felt like I was carried away. Intoxicated.

Made me escape the room I was in.

I can't help but wonder

How your hands must have felt writing such a masterful thing.


CATH:

Just one word caused all that wondering....


NICK:

It only takes a word...


NICK/CATH:

It only takes a word when you know it's good.

Sometimes one word is more than enough.

To know you want more of the thing you just got a word of.
