Beauty and the Beast
Scripts and Transcription Project
The goal of this website is making available
online the scripts and transcriptions of all the episodes of Beauty and the Beast.
Each episode transcription will be in English and contain the exact dialogue used in the aired version.
This would be helpful for a number of reasons:
- as a reference for fanfic writers
- as a help to those fans whose native language is not English
- as a guide for those who don't have access to any of the episode videos
- as a quick "fix" when you just can't get to your screen ;-)
The scripts are another very important part of the project. We are gathering scripts of
all the episodes, each of which exists in multiple versions, as the writers developed and adjusted the first idea into the actual episode that was filmed. Our objective is to make available online both the earliest versions of the scripts and the actual transcriptions of the aired episodes (in English). Many episodes went through some fascinating changes between their first incarnation and the final filmed version. (As an example, look at the opening and closing scenes of "The Watcher" in the original script.) Making the various versions available will make it
possible for everyone to enjoy the development of our favorite show.
We chose to include PDF format for anyone interested in seeing what the actual scripts look
like. PDF reader software, if you don't already have it, is free, safe to use, and available from Adobe.
comments, questions, suggestions, and offers of help – we need people willing to
watch the episodes and transcribe them, and people willing and able to edit the
rough transcriptions. Here is the current situation
