Craig and John celebrate one year of the podcast by going H.A.M. on the passive voice, the present progressive and other reductive nonsense rules.

While you should feel free to split infinitives, we'd strongly recommend you avoid the 100+ lines of really bad dialogue you'll hear far too often in movies. Thanks to Go Into the Story for compiling these.

After that, it's time for six listener questions, on topics ranging from spec scripts 101, overseas copyright, to following up after a chance meeting.

All this and more on the first anniversary episode of Scriptnotes.
