When I was in college, I took a class called "Acting for the Camera". We spent the entire semester filming scenes where we were given a short set of lines, and could only use that dialogue. The scenes that we came up with ran the gamut from talking about a dead cat, two people having an affair, and a Hitchcockian murder scene. All with the same eight lines.
This scene was part of a contest with the same principle: The only lines allowed are "What is that?," "It's a unicorn," "Never seen one up close before," "Beautiful," "Get away" and "I'm sorry." This is the winner. I dare you not to cry watching what the filmmaker created out of just those simple words.
