An excerpt …

(making the pitch)

TOBY: (entering) This Real Life Productions?

MOE: You got an appointment?

TOBY: Appointment? I won’t need an appointment once you hear my idea.

MOE: Get an appointment.

TOBY: You’re Moe, right?

MOE: I’m Moe … and you still need an appointment.

TOBY: You’re the one who produces all the great reality shows … Swamp Idiots, Bird Killers, Bachelors and Babes?

MOE: That’s me. Call me next week.

(one reality TV show example)

TOBY: Great! Okay … Picture this … Music comes in under the picture of a huge plane taking off, and here comes … “Security Check!”

VAL: (offstage voice) Attention, please! Flight 1107 for Miami now boarding at gate 49.

LOGAN: (rushing in, frantic) I’ve got to catch that flight.

VAL: Not so fast, lady. Got to check your bags.

LOGAN: But my flight is leaving in ten minutes.

VAL: Too bad. (taking her imaginary luggage) Heavy.

LOGAN: There’s nothing important in there, I promise.

VAL: I guess we’ll just see. (opens the suitcase) Socks, underwear, shoes … uh. There’s a man in here.

(another scenario)

MOE: Now wait a minute! I’m not going to sit here watching people get their toenails clipped!

TOBY: No! No! This is different! I promise you! Action!

VAL: You’re here to get your toenails done?

LOGAN: Is this the place?

VAL: Pedicures-R-Us. Right there on the door. Have a seat. (Val does.) Okay, you want the regular or the deluxe?

LOGAN: What’s the deluxe?

VAL: I do it without my blindfold.

LOGAN: Deluxe! Deluxe!
