Script

(AFTER THE FIRST SONG, PAT APPEARS AT THE FENCE INTERRUPTING JASON AND THE SINGING TIME)

PAT: (CALLING TO JASON) HEY YOU THERE, HOW LONG ARE YOUR ARMS?

JASON: MY ARMS?

PAT: YOUR ARMS. HOW LONG ARE THEY?

JASON: I'M NOT SURE, WHY DO YOU ASK?

PAT: CHEESE AND CRACKERS MAN, WHY DO YOU THINK? I NEED TO MEASURE THIS FENCE.

JASON: WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH MY ARMS? AND WHY ARE YOU MEASURING THE FENCE?

PAT: TEETH AND TOENAILS, DID I TELL YOU? NO, I GUESS I DIDN'T I'M PLANNING SOME COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT. THIS OLD FENCE NEEDS SOME UPDATES WOULDN'T YOU SAY?

JASON: I GUESS SO, ARE YOU GONG TO WORK ON THE FENCE TODAY?

PAT: HEAVENS NO, IT'S ALMOST MY LUNCH TIME; YOU WOULDN'T WANT ME TO MISS MY LUNCH TODAY?

(MORTON ENTERS AT THE FENCE.)

MORTON: DID SOMEONE SAY LUNCH?

PAT: PIGS AND PANCAKES, WHERE DID YOU COME FROM?

MORTON: ABSOLUTELY, PIGS LOVE PANCAKES, WHEN DO WE EAT?

JASON: IN THINK YOU MISUNDERSTOOD, NO ONE IS SERVING PANCAKES.

MORTON: THAT DOESN'T MATTER. I'LL EAT ANYTHING. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

PAT: STUFF AND NONSENSE, HE'S NOT JOKING IS HE?

JASON: I DON'T THINK SO.

MORTON: IT'S AWFULLY NICE OF YOU TO SHARE YOU LUNCH WITH US. WHAT ARE WE HAVING?

PAT: I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I'M HAVING A TUNA FISH SANDWICH.

MORTON: A TUNA FISH SANDWICH? YOU MEAN TWO PIECES OF BREAD AND SOME FISH? IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE MUCH.

PAT: WELL BEAN AND BANANAS, OF COURSE IT'S NOT MUCH. IT'S LUNCH FOR ONE.

MORTON: WELL, I'M NOT AN EXPERT WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD... NO... WAIT, I AM AN EXPERT AND MAKING ONE LITTLE SANDWICH FEED MORE THAN ONE HUNGRY PERSON...

JASON: (INTERRUPTING) OR PIG

MORTON: EXACTLY! MAKING ONE SANDWICH FEED MORE THAN ONE HUNGRY PERSON OR PIG...WELL THAT'S GOING TO BE SOME TRICK.

PAT: I CAN DO AN EVER BETTER TRICK THAN THAT; I CAN MAKE A WHOLE SANDWICH DISAPPEAR!

MORTON: (IN DISBELIEF) REALLY? YOU CAN? IS THIS A MAGIC TRICK?

JASON: I THINK HE'S TALKING ABOUT EATING IT.

MORTON: NOT WITHOUT ME HE'S NOT!

PAT: YOU'LL HAVE TO CATCH ME FIRST. (PAT QUICKLY DISAPPEARS, MORTON IN HOT PURSUIT. PAT REAPPEARS ALONE A MOMENT LATER) WHOA, I DIDN'T KNOW PIGS COULD RUN SO FAST. (GLANCES DOWN WHERE MORTON COULD BE) CABBAGES AND COOKIES, GET AWAY FROM MY LUNCH BOX! (PAT EXITS QUICKLY)

JASON CONTINUES WITH THE SINGING.
