Email me with any suggestions/corrections for scripts. Any copies of scripts you have transcribed are also very welcome.

Other transcripts that I haven't had time to check against the shows (some are very detailed, others just drafts), nor add notes about the different versions, are available here

Another careful set of transcriptions, with lots of footnotes can be found at scorchingbay

Other scripts, not actually written by the great Milligna, 'Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery', can be found here
