An excerpt …
GENE: (suddenly appearing) Cowabunga, Man! (Jimmy screams) Shhh! You want your Mom to hear you?
JIMMY: (now on the floor, holding his beating heart) Who … who are you?
GENE: The Easter Bunny.
JIMMY: That’s crazy!
GENE: You’re right. How about CNN? This is Gene Neeny with CNN news. We’re here to interview the most recent victim of a bad attitude. (putting an imaginary microphone in Jimmy’s face) Whatta ya say, Jimmy boy? Got a word for our television audience? What’s is like to be a little jerk?
JIMMY: I … are you … am I dreaming?
GENE: (singing) “I dream of Genie with the light brown hair!”
JIMMY: Did Mom send you up here? Who are you?
(It’s the room, dummy)
JIMMY: I guess I kinda need to clean things.
GENE: Kinda? Jimmy, this could be a Museum of Natural History! (holds something) There’s stuff in here from the Dark Ages!
JIMMY: That’s a disco tape.
GENE: See what I mean?
JIMMY: How’d you get in here?
GENE: You rubbed.
GENE: You rubbed and I came. That’s what I do.
GENE: The flashlight, Ding Dong! You rubbed that stupid flashlight!
(Somehow, Gene allows Jimmy to clean the room.)
JIMMY: Wow! Wait’ll Mom sees this.
GENE: She won’t believe her eyes, Jimmy!
JIMMY: And I can’t believe how quick I did it!
GENE: A new world’s record, kid.
JIMMY: Look, I gotta run. The game starts in twenty minutes and I gotta find my uniform in this … Hey! It’s right there hanging up!
GENE: Isn’t life great?
JIMMY: I’ll talk to you later, okay? I gotta catch the game. (begins to go, then stops) Uh … look. Thanks.
GENE: I didn’t do a thing.
JIMMY: Well … I mean ... thanks anyway. Later!
