RANDY
They’re both here?!

MARIANNE
Amazing, isn’t it? This has to be the best 1. __________________ ever!

RANDY
Totally. Linda Carter was like the first Wonder Woman right?

MARIANNE
Many actresses have played Wonder Woman. 2. ________________ has even been her.

RANDY
The one who played Xena Warrior Princess?

MARIANNE
The same.

RANDY
Wow, 2._______________ gets all the cool parts. So, which line is this? Old or new Wonder Woman?

MARIANNE
Don’t call Linda Carter old. That’s not polite.

RANDY
How about 3. _____________ Wonder Woman and
4. _______________ Wonder Woman?


MARIANNE
Better. What was your question again?

RANDY
5. _______________________

(They laugh)



MARIANNE
No, that’s not what you asked. Oh, thats right. You asked, which line is this? It’s to meet both. I bought the super deluxe wonder pack. I get to meet them, get their autographs and get a picture with them. It wasn’t cheap. Quite expensive actually. It cost  
6. ________________. That must be why I’m the only one in the line.

RALPH
You rich or something?

MARIANNE
No, not at all,  I’ve been saving for this ever since I found out. I gave up:
7. _____________________
Stopped going to:
8. ___________________
And ate lots of:

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. They’re my heroes.

RALPH
Wonder Woman isn’t real, you know?

MARIANNE
But she’s real to me.

(MARIANNE is very forceful about this and pouts. RANDY looks around a minute before asking:)

RALPH
How long have you been waiting?

(RANDY notices her sleeping bag)

MARIANNE
I’ve been waiting here for 10. ___________________ days. I’m first in line too!

RANDY
It must be a pretty expensive line if you’re the only one.

MARIANNE
It showed I’m the most dedicated fan of all. I’m their biggest fan!

RANDY
Isn’t that a quote from a horror movie?  
11. ____________________________

MARIANNE
Maybe.

RANDY
You’re scaring me.

MARIANNE
You have nothing to fear. Wonder Woman is here.

RANDY
Where?

MARIANNE
In the building somewhere. Two of them actually. I wonder what’s going on? It seems like hardly anyone is here now.

RANDY
I think everyone went to the other building for something.

MARIANNE
There’s another building at the convention center?

RANDY
I came over here because I hate 12.__________________________.

MARIANNE
They told me this was line. Do you think they told me the wrong place?

RANDY
Who did you talk to?

MARIANNE
She sounded like she thought she was important. I think she said her name was Ashley. Her clothes were very sparkly.

RANDY
That’s our state beauty queen pageant winner Ashley Addams. Miss
13. _________________. She thinks she going to be the next Miss America.

MARIANNE
Why is she here?

RANDY
Doing some comic book store promo for her cousin or something as a favor. My theory is that she has to do community service for a crime she’s committed. She
14. ______________________.

MARIANNE
Please tell me she told me the right place to go.

RANDY
Judging by the way she is pointing over here and laughing with her friends… maybe not.

MARIANNE
This is terrible! Why would she do this to me?

RANDY
Because she’s a jerk. She thinks she’s better than everyone else and tries to make sure us pee-ons know it.

MARIANNE
What am I going to do? What if I missed it? I’m going to be last in line!

ANNOUNCER
Last call for fan waiting to see Gal Gadot in building 15. ____________, floor
16. _____________.

MARIANNE
This is building A.

RANDY
There’s that many buildings?

MARIANNE
With 16. _______________ floors! I’m going to miss it.

RANDY
Not if I have anything to do with it. Come on!

MARIANNE
What are you doing?

RANDY
Helping you see Wonder Woman!  Here I come to save the day! Randy is on the way!

MARIANNE
17. _____________________!

RANDY
