DOTTY: Do you have a tough time getting tips out of these guys as I do, Denise?

DENISE: The only reason we’re doing these stupid jobs is to get a chance at performing in the club. We’d be way better than those screechy Gazelle Sisters. One of them saw a rat and screamed and jumped on a table and the club manager thought she was auditioning and signed them up.

DOTTY: Here they come.

(GABBY and GRETTA enter. They are snotty, overdressed singers)

DENISE: Check your brooms, girls?

DOTTY: Coffee? Cake? Cyanide?

GABBY: Still jealous, slaves?

(GABBY and GRETTA toss their huge coats at DENISE who is hit by them and falls down)

DOTTY: Let’s face it, Denise. It looks like we’re never gonna see our names in lights.

DENISE: You know what we’re doing wrong, Dotty? We need to stop waiting around for our big break. We need to make this happen.  Instead waiting around here for a year to make our big break, we’re going to make it happen in an hour.

DOTTY: Really?

DENISE: Watch the hat check for me. Look for a big hat and coat too. Something manly and official looking.

(DENISE exits. DOTTY looks confused by obeys. DENISE returns giggling)

DOTTY: What did you do?

DENISE: You’ll see. Put on the hat and coat.


DENISE: You’re going to play doctor.

DOTTY: My mama told me to stop doing that years ago.

DENISE: Can you talk in a deep voice like a man?

(DOTTY tries)

DOTTY: I suppose.

DENISE: Let’s see if all those improv classes paid off.

DOTTY: Oh, improv. That’s “yes, and…” and all that stuff.


DOTTY: And… oh, I forget what’s next.

(GABBY and GRETTA scream. DENISE claps happily)

DENISE: Here they come.

(GABBY and GRETTA enter. Their faces are covered in weird colors)

GABBY: What’s wrong with your face?

GRETTA: What’s wrong with yours?

GABBY: I’m breaking out!

GRETTA: Get away from me. I might catch it!

GABBY: But you have the same thing.
