An excerpt …
BRENNAN: The History of Mankind!
TRAVIS: In less than ten minutes!
BOTH: In the beginning …
BRENNAN: God created the heaven and the earth and the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep! And God said:
TRAVIS: Let there be light!
BRENNAN: (looking up and squinting) All right! … Way to go, big guy!
TRAVIS: Let there be earth!
BRENNAN: (raising up feet) Whoa!
BRENNAN: Awww …
BRENNAN: (as ELVIS) Thank you. Thank you very much.
TRAVIS: And on the sixth day God created … Man!
BRENNAN: (as ADAM, jumps forward) Yes!
TRAVIS: And while man slept, God reached in (reaches into ADAM’s chest) and removed a rib …
BRENNAN: (giggling, being tickled) Hey! Hey! Hey! Quit it!
TRAVIS: And made woman!
BRENNAN: (seeing EVE) Whoa!
TRAVIS: (as EVE, taking an “apple” from a snake) (in a hissing voice) Here. How ‘bout some dessert?
BRENNAN: (as ADAM) Yum. (takes apple)
TRAVIS: And God became angry. (forcefully) You! Out!
BRENNAN: (as ADAM) She made me do it! I swear! It was a set-up!
TRAVIS: Alternative beginning!
BOTH: In the beginning!
TRAVIS: Cro-Magnon man evolved!
BRENNAN: (jumping forward, as a prehistoric man) Ugh.
TRAVIS: (as prehistoric woman) And saw the first woman!
BRENNAN: Ugh! (hits her with his club and she falls into his arms)
TRAVIS: Meanwhile, back in the Bible!
BRENNAN: Adam and Eve begat Cain and Able and Seth, who begat Enos, who begat Eainan, who begat Mahalaleel, who begat Jared, who begat Enoch, who begat Methuselah, who begat Lameeh, who begat Noah!!!
TRAVIS: Stop! Oh ye sinful generation! So much begetting!
BRENNAN: So he built a boat!
BOTH: (begin to rock back and forth, seasick, moaning.)
