Darth Wiki: The Paper Cup Of Success
The Paper Cup Of Success is an upcoming indie comedy about a bitter 60-year old woman inheriting her father's paper cup company, and trying to succeed in the competitive world of business. It will be written and directed by Some Writer.
  • Anti-Hero: Lane, a bitter and cynical woman.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
    Lane: Sure, he was obnoxious, but what did he do so bad you had to leave home?
    Amy: He told lies about me to all my boyfriends, he constantly embarrassed me in front of my friends, and worst of all, he always left the toilet seat up. Every time.
  • Running Gag: Phoenix's love of streamers.
  • Walk and Talk: Lane and Amy have one of these.
  • Spirited Young Lady: Amy fits this pretty well.
