This submission is from our team. We couldn’t help notice how filler words gave away David and Jennifer at the FRIENDS reunion episode and immediately had this script in mind. Fellow Toastmasters in our club were delighted to read this and we hope you would like it as well. Let us know your views and how your club members react if you happen to use this script.
RELATED: How to do the role of Ah Counter?
I was watching FRIENDS reunion yesterday and couldn’t help notice how emotional and nostalgic the six characters were. Each of them was spontaneous and fluid not just while reminiscing the memories together back in the apartment but also when interviewed by the host James Corden, as if speaking straight from the heart. Except when James inquired about off-screen romances. That was the only instance when Jennifer began answering “well …yeah…I mean” only to have David interject with “Yeah I mean.. the uh… the first season.” It was evident that both of them were uncomfortable and perhaps untruthful. Fellow Toastmasters, if filler words can give away established actors, imagine what they can do to you. That is why in Toastmasters, we help our members get rid of their filler words such as ah, umm, yeah, like, etc. As the Ah Counter today, I will track them for you and present my report towards the end of the meeting so that unlike Jennifer and David you don’t mumble.
