An excerpt …

(The student wants the latest phone.)

RONNIE: I want to buy something.

CHRIS: Oh, then I can probably help you. That’s one thing about our business here at The Electric House … we are helpful. “Plugged-in to the community” you might say.

RONNIE: Look, I’m in a hurry. I have to get to school and I’m going to be late … again. I’d like to buy that new thing you advertised … the Phantom Electron Mixmaster Phone. Could you tell me how it works?

CHRIS: (picks up item and shows it to Ronnie) It is designed for the young people of today. It completes all the important functions that you need.

RONNIE: How do you turn it on?

CHRIS: You don’t need to turn it on. The battery is charged by the kinetic energy in your body. Just holding it in your hand supplies the power.

RONNIE: Wow. That’s great!

(Not only a phone, it makes milkshakes and …)

CHRIS: You put two scoops of ice cream in a tall glass and add some milk. Push this button and the whisk-auger appears and stirs the mix. Wallah! A milkshake.

RONNIE: Oh, yeah, that’s real handy. I heard it has a great music feature. Where are the speakers?

CHRIS: It doesn’t have any. Phantom Electron uses wireless short wave that jumps from the unit directly to your ear. The really neat thing about it is that when some news program comes on, like CNN world events, there is music so loud that it drowns out the information. That way you’re not burdened with what’s going on around you.

RONNIE: Sounds terrific. I’ll take it.

(It is the salespersons personal copy, and …)

CHRIS: Sorry. There is no way I can let you have this.

RONNIE: I’ll pay you double.

CHRIS: Sold. Do you want it gift wrapped?

RONNIE: No, I have to get to school. Here, I’ll pay cash.

CHRIS: Cash. You want to pay with cash? Do you have any identification?

RONNIE: Look (holds up imaginary bills) I have some pictures of past presidents. Will that do?

CHRIS: Close enough. (collects the money, hands him the object)

RONNIE: Hey, thanks a lot for selling me your personal Phantom Electron. I really appreciate it. Gotta run. Bye. (exits)

CHRIS: You’re welcome. Bye. (after Ronnie exits, pause, smiles)(reaches under the counter, gets another unit and places it on top) Ahh. The Phantom Electron Mixmaster Phone. Lovely. (looks at audience) May I help you?
