There are no extra words, any more than there are extra actions. When a script is written and read by others (rather than being witness in a video), it takes a real insight to understand the inflections and timing so that the words are properly matched with the action. One is rarely complete without the other in such a script. Too much of one, or not enough of another, and the result is not unlike a zipper that won't close. It fails to go together properly. Gimmicks and methods are merely tools implemented to work with other props and actions that the audience does see (although in this case, nothing else is visible, except the smoke and the magician himself). Eliminate any one of these various factors, and the whole is broken. [/quote]
