Resume paused script

One of the dreams I have is an option for the Exit script step that would control paused script.

Let's say you paused the script, and you have two buttons you place on screen for the user to choose from (either continue, or exit)... if I could AT LEAST PASS A PARAMETER to continue one way or another!
Sometimes I just wanna throw FM out the window...

Script A will be:
Perform Script [Script B]
Instead of trying to resume script A, just kill it and run script B.

I just realized that if I wrap all of the code into parameter conditions, I CAN do that. The scripts doesn't "resume" where it left off, but it then doesn't matter if it starts at the beginning again, because only the part matching the new parameter is being executed.

In my case, i want to run a script that
- defines attributes according to the button pushed
-pause the script to run a script that opens a custom "custom dialogue" box (with drop-downs and options)
-return to the original script with parameters from the first part of the script added to the second script and use those to generate a report.
I mean, it can be done, but it is going to be amazingly more difficult than it would have to be with a pause and resume situation (something like a customizable custom dialogue box) or a conditional resume button.
