Produce Ross Putman put together the excellent Twitter account @femscriptintros. He tweets out a lot of horribly awesome introductions to women found in screenplays. He kindly (for the authors) changes all of the names of women to Jane. Here are a few of the gems he has found:

She is past her prime. Ages 23-30.

His wife JANE is making dinner and watching CNN on a small TV. She was model pretty once, but living an actual life has taken its toll.

Sunlight peeks through the shades on to JANE, (early 30’s) who is sleeping soundly. She is attractive in an unusual way.
