An excerpt …

(The meeting will come to order.)

MONA: (entering with Jeanette) Where is everybody?

JEANETTE: How should I know? This was your idea.

MONA: It was OUR idea. All of us.

JEANETTE: It’s dumb.

MONA: Dumb ideas work sometimes.

JEANETTE: Don’t look at me when you say that.

MARIE: (entering, a young lady who thinks she’s quite sophisticated) Afternoon, darlings!

MONA & JEANETTE: (imitating her) “Afternoon, Darling!”

MARIE: Do I detect a note of … what shall I say? Sarcasm?

MONA: Have a seat, your highness. It’s time to start the meeting.


MONA: Ladies, the first meeting of the 7th-grade Culture Club will now come to order!

PETEY: Culture? I don’t need to stinkin’ culture! (they all do a slow “take” to her as she scratches herself)

MARIE: (finally) Perhaps if you first learned to spell it.

JEANETTE: It’s to get us ready for eighth-grade, Petey.

PETEY: I got my ball glove. What else you need?

MARIE: Oh … my … word.

PETEY: You want a fat lip?

(After some pointed conversation, Marie changes her mind about culture.)

JEANETTE: Wait a minute! What about the stuff you were gonna teach us?

MARIE: I really have to go.

MONA: We made a deal!

MARIE: I have an appointment.

JEANETTE: With who?

MARIE: (a long beat, then) Sarah reminded me of something. Something I should have known all along. I’ve got to go see someone. Talk to you girls later.

MONA: At least tell us who we’re bein’ stood up for.

MARIE: Bubba.

PETEY: Who’s Bubba?

MARIE: My teddy bear. I think I need a hug. (Marie looks at her a moment, then hugs her.)
