UNIX permissions

I am having a bit of trouble with UNIX file permissions.  Is a script 
considered an 'other' user?

Would anyone care to enter into a short discussion about the hows and whys of 
the best way to run directory and file permissions?  What should directories 
and files used by a particular script be set to and why?

Does a directory's permissions affect each and every sub directory? or just 
the files immediately below it?

One specific question...  I gave a directory write permissions, but the 
script was not allowed to create a new file to that directory until I gave it 
execute permissions.  Why is that?

Thanks for your help...
