Props: baseball glove, paper cups and elastics
Sample of script:
Max is on stage, working with something, he hurts his finger
Max: Ouch, that smarts!
Max puts on a baseball glove,
Agent 99 comes on stage
99: Did I hear you calling out to yourself Max?
Max: To myself 99? Why would I call out to myself? None of us here at Control call out to ourselves, you should know that 99! I mean, what if KAOS was listening in on our output . .
99: On our output Max?
Max: Yes, 99, on our output. Siegfried is always looking for a chance to gobble up our output.
99: Let me get this straight Max. You are saying that Siegfried, KAOS’s most feared agent is a . . . turkey?
Max, shocked: He is? I did not know that 99, I mean how did you know that Siegfried was a turkey?
99: Max, it was you who said that Siegfried would gobble up our output and I took that to mean that he was a turkey.
Max: 99, I was talking metaphorically, I didn’t actually mean that he was a . . .
Chief rushes on stage
Chief: Max, 99, thank heavens you are here! Where’s Larabee?
99: Larabee has picked up a part-time job packing groceries at Grubpile Supermarket, but he should be along shortly.
Chief: What are you saying? One of our agents has taken on a part-time job? I will have you people know that being a Control agent is a full time job! I demand that all Control personnel devote themselves to their Control duties 110% of the time. Now just why would Larabee go get a part-time job anyhow?
99: Well sir, as you will remember you announced wage cuts of 90% for all Control staff.
Chief: Yes, I did, things are tough. But that doesn’t mean you agents can’t live on the wages you are paid, just cut out non-essentials.
Max: I see where you’re coming from Chief but with take home of $1.38 a week essentials become pretty non-essential.
Chief: Max, are you telling me you can’t put anything aside for a rainy day at that wage?
Max, holds thumb and index finger about an inch apart: Missed it by that much Chief.
99: Here comes Larabee now.
Larabee comes on stage, yawning
Larabee: I am some wasted!
Max: Mold off the cumquats?
Larabee: No. Wasted. Like tired.
Max: Gotcha Larabee, that was gonna be my second choice.
