An excerpt …

 (A new problem … the kid’s music is too loud.)

RENE: (entering) Why’s Daddy shouting?

MOTHER: (shouting) It’s the music, dear! It makes him crazy!

BOBBY: I can’t hear you, Mom!

FATHER: You kids are gonna go deaf some day! I mean it! Stone cold deaf from all that loud music!

RENE: (slapping her ears a bit) Wow. That’s weird. Dad, your lips are moving but I can’t hear what you’re saying.

BOBBY: Who turned off the music?

FATHER: What’re you doing?

BOBBY: Can’t hear you, Dad. And I can’t hear the music.

RENE: Daddy, I’m not kidding! I can’t hear a thing!

BOBBY: Are you talking to me? Speak up!


FATHER: What’s going on?

MOTHER: They can’t hear, John! You cursed them!

FATHER: I never swear!

MOTHER: Granny’s curse! You told them they’d go deaf!

(Careful what you say.)

RENE: Mommy! I’m getting shorter! I’m getting shorter! What a world! What a world!

MOTHER: John! John, look what you’ve done!

FATHER: I didn’t touch them!

MOTHER: The curse! You said it’d stunt their growth! Look at them! Just look what’s happening!

FATHER: They’re getting shorter. Now that is really weird. Great, now we’ll have to buy all new clothes.

(The source of the curse?)

BOBBY: Yeh. You think he fell for it?

MOTHER: He fell for it. Bobby, don’t be out too late. Rene, go ahead and watch television. When your dad wakes up he’ll have a whole new attitude.

RENE: Good plan, Mom.

MOTHER: I love him but he takes a little training now and then.

BOBBY: (begins to exit, then stops) Mom? That stuff about Granny Johnson?

RENE: Yeh. Was that true … about the curse?

MOTHER: Your Grandmother Johnson had her PhD in psychology. When you get older, I’ll give you her book … How to Manage Your Family. (they smile)
