DOTTY: Yes… and… I am… a doctor.

MORTON: Can you help them, doc?

DOTTY: Yes… and… yes.

DENISE: This is Doctor Dottle - the world-famous diagnostician.

MORTON: This is nothing serious, it it? Just a rash or something?

DOTTY: Rash-pash! This is the rare green-spotted fever! Not fatal, but contagious! These girls must be quarantined.


DENISE: Nice one, Dotty.

MORTON: Back to your dressing room, girls. Do as the doctor orders.

GRETTA: This is horrible!

GABBY: What are we going to do?

DENISE: Give this music to the band. Dotty and I will be ready in a flash.

MORTON: Hurry. You’re on in a few minutes.

(MORTON rushes out. When MORTON is gone, DENISE whips out some costumes)

DENISE: Oh, no. They’re on to us.

(GRETTA and GABBY return)

GRETTA: You tricked us!

GABBY: You put something in our makeup!

(GRETTA and GABBY enter angry with the makeup)

GRETTA: You did this to us!

GABBY: Let’s give these gals a makeover!

(GRETTA and GABBY attack DOTTY and DENISE with the makeup)

MORTON (CONT.): Wait a minute. The audience loves it! They must think it is part of the show. Listen to them cheer. I’ve never seen the audience so excited. This might be our biggest hit yet. I wonder if they could do this again tomorrow night.

(MORTON runs off excited. Then he runs back in with the ladies fighting behind him. They cross the stage doing battle. MORTON pushes them back to the club area. The audience cheers. MORTON claps his hands and returns to the club area)
