Sample of script:

Toad is in the room, working on computer and making notes. Frog enters.

Frog: “Hello, Toad. What are you doing?

Toad: "I am researching my ancestors on this Web site. Did you know I have a relative that lived in Thomas Edison’s garden? And my great uncle George was adopted by a family of Komoto Dragons?"

Frog: "That’s interesting, I guess. Why do you care?"

Toad: "It’s important to know where you came from. Besides, I need to prove that I am qualified to join the DAR.”

Frog: "The Daughters of the American Revolution? Toad, there is no way that you are the daughter of anything."

Toad: "Not THAT DAR. This is much more exclusive. I want to become a member of the Descendants of Ancient Reptiles. I’m sure one of my ancestors was a dinosaur."

Frog: “A dinosaur! Toad, I hate to break this to you, but dinosaurs were reptiles, not amphibians like us.”
