2) In real life, people have never talked in iambic pentameter. In any era.

It’s really quite a normal way to speak.

But since you mention it, in real life, people don’t burst into song to express their emotional themes — with rhymes! and an invisible backing orchestra! — so you must also hate musicals.

What a shame to only appreciate the literal, and not the poetic.
