[Flash 8 Pro] Need help: load random array element and loop for random intervals

I’ve struggled with this like crazy for over a week:wasted:, ignorance my only excuse. I want a movieclip consisting of a dynamic text box that, from the time it’s loaded onto the stage, loads a randomly selected text string from an array, and continues to loop until the clip is removed from the stage. I also want the text strings to appear in the text box for random intervals between 500 and 3000 milliseconds.

While I’ve found tutorials here and elsewhere on loading one element from an array, usually triggered by a button, I don’t know how to combine/alter it with the other elements.

So I want this movieclip on the stage randomly flashing phrases from an array, some for a barely perceptible time, and others for a readable time.

Help greatly appreciated.
