Do we say "line" or "lines"?
The entry for line is:
- Usu., lines. the words of an actor's part in a drama, musical comedy, etc.
It says it's usually plural, but they don't say when it's singular. Do we use the singular if the line is just a sentence? And do we use the plural when we're talking about more than two sentences?
I said the following line "I am about to tell a really good one, because I thought about this joke since the morning and the morning thereafter, and I have refined it until this very last minute!" on stage.
