An excerpt …
(A new problem … the kid’s music is too loud.)
RENE: (entering) Why’s Daddy shouting?
MOTHER: (shouting) It’s the music, dear! It makes him crazy!
BOBBY: I can’t hear you, Mom!
FATHER: You kids are gonna go deaf some day! I mean it! Stone cold deaf from all that loud music!
RENE: (slapping her ears a bit) Wow. That’s weird. Dad, your lips are moving but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
BOBBY: Who turned off the music?
FATHER: What’re you doing?
BOBBY: Can’t hear you, Dad. And I can’t hear the music.
RENE: Daddy, I’m not kidding! I can’t hear a thing!
BOBBY: Are you talking to me? Speak up!
FATHER: What’s going on?
MOTHER: They can’t hear, John! You cursed them!
FATHER: I never swear!
MOTHER: Granny’s curse! You told them they’d go deaf!
(Careful what you say.)
RENE: Mommy! I’m getting shorter! I’m getting shorter! What a world! What a world!
MOTHER: John! John, look what you’ve done!
FATHER: I didn’t touch them!
MOTHER: The curse! You said it’d stunt their growth! Look at them! Just look what’s happening!
FATHER: They’re getting shorter. Now that is really weird. Great, now we’ll have to buy all new clothes.
(The source of the curse?)
BOBBY: Yeh. You think he fell for it?
MOTHER: He fell for it. Bobby, don’t be out too late. Rene, go ahead and watch television. When your dad wakes up he’ll have a whole new attitude.
RENE: Good plan, Mom.
MOTHER: I love him but he takes a little training now and then.
BOBBY: (begins to exit, then stops) Mom? That stuff about Granny Johnson?
RENE: Yeh. Was that true … about the curse?
MOTHER: Your Grandmother Johnson had her PhD in psychology. When you get older, I’ll give you her book … How to Manage Your Family. (they smile)
