Male Lines for Extras

These are extra lines for men.  Click here to go back to the audition page.



[Say this like you’re golfing.  Indoors.]



[Say this like some idiot is golfing indoors.]

“Son of a… Some of us are trying to read here!”



[A doctor just asked you how you’re doing.]

“No, no.  I’m doing good so far.”


These two lines are just a bit of gossip between patients.]

“Your regular, Dr. Toda.  He didn’t come to work today?”

“Nah.  They said he caught a cold and didn’t want to infect his patients.”


[Patients and nurses greeting a doctor.]

“Good morning doctor.”

“Good morning!”


[This is a taxi driver asking for his fare.]

“That’s 14,000 yen, pal.”


[This bartender is talking above the music.]

“Good evening!  You look like you’re looking for someone.”

[Same bartender.]

“Sure.  He’s the one singing, over there.”



[This is a down-to-business secretary.  He isn’t here to chat.  While this call is over the phone, just speak normally, and I’ll add the phone effects in post.]

“This is the surgical department of Airoku University Hosptial.  Am I talking to Eijiro Saito’s father?  It appears that Dr. Saito has been dismissed from employment.”


[These next two lines are from a couple of anxious children.]

“Was he fired?”

“Did he quit?”


[Again, this is over the phone, but I’ll add the phone in post.  ‘Airoku’ is pronounced ‘Eye-row-koo’.]

No.  Absolutely out of the question.  Airoku is too intimidating.  We could never poach one of their patients.  Sorry, no, and good-bye.



[For right here, I need doctors murmuring among themselves.  Ad-lib something.]


[Here, I need some general murmuring from patients.  Something dramatic is going on in the next room, but no one seems to know what it is.]



[This doctor is trying to break up a fight.  Feel free to ad-lib something.  ‘Kita’ is pronounced ‘Key-tah’.]


“Stop it!  What are you doing Kita?!”


[Nurses and Doctors who are honestly surprised and happy to see a doctor they thought would never return to their hospital.]

“Dr. Kita!”

“Hey, it’s Dr. Kita!”


[Just a doctor talking bout doctor stuff.]

“So I was thinking Ichigo and I could handle the evening rounds…”


[This doctor isn’t planning on sticking around.]

“Oh!  Michiba.  Are you still here?”

“Okay!  Well I’m leaving!”


[This guy is a total skeeve, and appears to be happy at the expense of his girlfriend.  Feel free to ad-lib a couple more lines for this.]




[This is a temple priest…]

Doctor… I’m afraid I can’t pay for my medicine.

[But the good natured local doctor asked him to do a little dance to make up for it.]

“Of course!”

[The priest needs to make a lot of silly noises while dancing, while the rest of the scene plays out.  Keep in mind that this scene takes place in the 1950s.]


[Family members at a funeral.  Feel free to ad-lib a little something within this vein.  The key point is that these people are grateful for Dr. Michiba, and all that he’s done.  Again, ‘Michiba’ is pronounced ‘Mee-chee-bah’.]

“Thank you for coming.”

“Oh, Dad was always happy to see you.  He had a funny way of showing it, I know.  But when I was a kid he used to make a point about of smart you are.”

“It’s so good to see you Dr. Michiba.  Are you still running the practice?  Anybody helping you out these days?”

“Dr. Michiba!  I haven’t seen you in years!  I wish I could have been there… I took a flight as soon as I heard.  I’m glad to hear you were there even if I couldn’t be.”
