The Dream-State Opener

Updated: Feb 20, 2020

In Broad City S1E7, "Hurricane Wanda", our ladies remind us why there's nothing like a solid dream sequence--and they do so by masterfully pulling one off as the show's Cold Opening. In their irreverent, form-bending style, Abbi and Ilana show us just how elemental the a dream-like setting can be to advancing an episode's character development; establish a fresh and human emotional stake; and draw attention to the construct of the sitcom format as only these two offbeat, luminary writer-actresses can do.

Jeremy.

JEREMY

Hey Ab.


ABBI

Hey.


00:19


JEREMY Locked out of my apartment. You have a spare, right?


ABBI

No, I don't, I don't.

00:23


I would totally remember

if I had, um, one of your keys.


JEREMY

That's weird.


00:28


JEREMY (cont'd)

You'd be the person I'd pick

if I gave someone a spare,

so I just assumed you had one.



00:32


ABBI I would be?

I mean I would take one.

If we want to go through that,

and that commitment,

I would have it with me whenever.

ABBI (cont'd) Um.... While you're here, inside my apartment,





00:41


ABBI (cont'd)

maybe you could help me

put up a shelf?

JEREMY

I'd love to.
