— Scott Proctor, "That Text Was Not Meant for Josh! "


Saga Sell is essentially a spoken word version of the "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Theme" song. It was a meta reprisal done by Scott and Paula Proctor as they were talking about Rebecca’s love life. The breaking the fourth wall moment was punctuated by the show’s title card appearing after their conversation was done. It’s first appearance was in the Season One Episode "That Text Was Not Meant for Josh!."

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend 1x11 — Paula recites the opening theme song

Lyrics:


Paula: She was working hard at a New York job
making dough but it made her blue.
One day she was crying a lot
So she decided to move to
West Covina, California
Brand new pals, new career.
It happens to be where Josh lives
and that's exactly why she's here.

Scott: [Laughs] She's the crazy ex-girlfriend!

Paula: What? No she's not.

Scott: She's the crazy ex-girlfriend!

Paula: That's a sexist term, Scott!

Scott: She's the crazy ex-girlfriend!

Paula: Okay just stop talking for a second.

Scott: She's so broken inside.

Paula: The situation is a lot more nuanced than that.

Scott: C-R-A-Z-Y!

Paula: I know how to spell Scott.

Scott: She's the crazy ex-girlfriend.


NotesEdit

Saga Sell definitionEdit

A “Saga Sell is a Hollywood industry term given to any monologue, narration, or speech usually given at the start of a program. The purpose is to provide a brief explanation of the show’s premise. In some instances the narrator giving the exposition is the main character and, just like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, is done musically. Some classic examples include the themes to “Gilligan's Island” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”.
