Trust the text! Do not make internal edits to the script to piece together a monologue unless you're crossing out another character's dialogue that's truly inconsequential and doesn't alter the story in any way. As a rule though, it's best to avoid internal edits - just choose the line where you'll begin and where you'll end.
Do your best to wear clothing appropriate to the era (or clothing suggestive of the era)
