An excerpt …

(they are all going to an audition for a commercial)

GROVER: (as the doors open) Going up!

WHISTLER: (entering with Ralph on his leash) Come Ralph. Come on, sweetheart.

TOLLIVER: A dog. You have a dog in this elevator.

WHISTLER: I know he’s a dog. What’s that with you?

TOLLIVER: This is Landis. He’s my child.

WHISTLER: Does he fetch?

TOLLIVER: Fetch? You’re taking him to the auditions for the commercial, right? Landis is going to get the leading part in the commercial!

LANDIS: I’m hungry.

(it was inevitable)

GROVER: Ahh. We’ve stopped.

TOLLIVER: What do you mean we’ve stopped?

GROVER: I think that pretty much covered it. The elevator’s stuck between floors.

LANDIS: Are we going to die, Mommy?

TOLLIVER: Not when you’ve got an audition! (to Grover) Please fix it. Landis hyperventilates easily.

LANDIS: I’m hyperventilating.

WHISTLER:  Oh, I wish this were a movie! Ralph always saves the day in his movies.

LANDIS: I can’t breathe.

(the child, Landis, loses his tempter with the adults, then …)

WHISTLER: He’s the director of the commercial. He said that your anger is just what he’s looking for! He thinks you’re great, Loomis!

LANDIS: Landis.

TOLLIVER: You got the part! Landis, you got the part! (they hug)

WHISTLER:  Well, I suppose that’s good enough for you. (to the director) Now, where are you auditioning the dogs? What? You’re done? You can’t be! You gave it to a poodle! You gave the part to a stupid, air-headed, blow-dried poodle!
