Sample of script:

Tyler, Morgan, Payton, Jamie walking onstage, talking

 

Tyler:               Nice pants Payton.

 

Payton:            These old things Tyler? . .  I was going through my closet, came across these pants, hadn’t worn them in a gazillion years, thought maybe I would try them out.

 

Jamie:              Well for sure they do look good on you Payton.

 

Payton:            Well these pants for sure are way tighter than the last time I wore them!

 

Morgan:          It’s the ambient temperature in your closet that causes it.

 

Tyler:               What’s ambient temperature Morgan?

 

Morgan:          I have zero idea what ambient temperature is Tyler, but when I blame tight fitting clothes on ambient temperature everyone seems to accept it.

 

Payton:            My tight fitting clothes are more due to chocolate cake than ambient temperature.

 

Jamie:              Why did God invent chocolate cake and cheesecake when they are so fattening?

 

Morgan:          It’s a sin is what it is.

 

VOG:              Temptation is sin only when accepted and yielded to.

 

Tyler:               You scare me when you do that.

 

VOG:              Temptations are the work of the evil one. You are, and will be, tempted.

 

Morgan:          Then what hope is there? . .  Sooner or later we will give in to Satan’s persuasion.

 

VOG:              Yes Satan is at the front door and if you let him in he may never leave. But I am the safe exit door and I am always there waiting for you to open it.

 

Tyler:               Funny you know . . . it seems the times I am most vulnerable to temptation is when I am at my best.
