An excerpt …

(Enter Right: Dan and Skip, two young aspiring actors)

SKIP: I don't see why we've gotta be in this silly speech contest anyway. We could be out playing basketball.

DAN: I'll tell you why, buddy. Can't you remember anything? The girls! Don't you remember all those beautiful young ladies at last year's contest? Remember how we walked around all night with those ribbons pinned to our chests and those little beauties would come up and ask us: (imitating girl) "Gosh, where'd you get that big shiny medal?"

SKIP: Yeah, I guess you're right.

DAN: And then you told 'em: "Why this here is the C.C.C. medal. Coolest Cat at the Contest!"

SKIP: Well, it didn't hurt to stretch things just a little.

DAN: A little! (laughs, then looks around) Listen, we'd better get busy. Mr. Orr said that if we didn't find us a speech today, we couldn't even be in the contest. (looking around) There's sure a lot of speeches around here.

(They both begin to hunt around, through imaginary files, on desks, etc. - Skip right and Dan left.)

SKIP: (searching through a pile of speeches) It's gotta be good this year. Mr. Orr said that speech contest judges are the pickiest people in the world … You remember that really frightful one we had last year?

DAN: (chuckling) Yeah, I don't know who got the biggest kick out of it … Her laughing at us or us laughing at her Botox and fake eyebrows. (they both laugh)

SKIP: Hey, listen. (turning to Dan).

DAN: (still shuffling through a stack of papers, in a falsetto) Listening.

SKIP: Why don't we write our own?
