An excerpt …
(They were supposed to do one show.)
ETHYL: Four shows? Are you crazy?
LUCY: Okay, I got confused.
RHODA: Four shows! Where are we gonna get shows?
LUCY: Look, they said they wanted a program for little kids. I thought they wanted some little play and hey, we’re actors. We’ve done plays.
LUCY: I misunderstood. I thought she was asking for a four-minute play.
KAROL: Lucy, we’ve only got one show. One. Count ‘em. The kids are out front waiting for four.
(Here’s the first variation.)
LUCY: Just follow me. (to the audience) And now boys and girls! The Three Little Pigs ... uh … in Texas!
LUCY: Ride, piggy! Ride! (And the three pigs hop on their imaginary ponies and begin riding)
RHODA: (chewing and spitting with the other two as they ride their ponies) You know partner, it was a shame what old Billy-the-Wolf did to your little sagebrush hacienda.
KAROL: Yeah, and when that no-good side-windin’ pork-stabbin’ sucker blew the puddin’ out of your adobe hut I was mighty perturbed.
RHODA: Mighty perturbed.
ETHYL: Mighty perturbed.
(It runs out very well.)
LUCY: They’re cheering! They’re screaming! They want more!
LUCY: They want another scene!
RHODA: No way!
LUCY: But see the looks on their faces?
ETHYL: See the fist in my hand?
LUCY: I know! Pigs do Shakespeare!
LUCY: The first pigs on the moon!
ETHYL: Somebody gag her.
LUCY: Spanish Pigs! Ole!
