The talented writer, director and producer Aaron Sorkin is exposed in 'Sorkinisms: A Supercut' video, which shows self-plagiarism. The video was created by YouTube user drfunky17 as a tribute to the auteur director, who is known for creating lively rapid-fire dialogue. Yet, this video tracks the recurring phrases and recycled dialogue.

Some of Sorkin's repeated dialogue is taken from a variety of sources such as Malice, A Few Good Men, The West Wing, Studio 60, Charlie Wilson's War and most recently The Social Network. Using some spitfire lines such as "Fire me, or shut the hell up," and "This isn’t camp, it’s not important that everyone gets to play," the video reveals Sorkin's repetitive structure in many of his famous works.
