Empty chair.[/RIGHT]

Good Morning everyone! So what is for breakfast? I'm starving.

[CENTER]Gir [/CENTER]

[RIGHT]In the background you hear pots fall.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

Owwww

[CENTER]Steven[/CENTER]

Well at least not most of the time anyway. She may be clumsy, a horrible cook, very forgetful, and sometimes annoying but she still is sweet.

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[RIGHT] Laughs[/RIGHT]



[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]
[RIGHT]Singing [/RIGHT]

In your dreams magical thoughts?All things are real unless you dream they?re not. In your dreams, love is the plot carried on wings of hope. Each of our souls intertwines, when we do. Instantly we see it the time to grow and be it when everything is pinned on a hope. Let rise the dreams of your heart, that innocent youth careless and kind. Free to roam the breeze in love only when two brilliantly shine as one?.

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

Yes we do have aliens around us.

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

Since I am Anne's friend it is up to me to defend her.

[RIGHT]Kicks Gir under the table.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

[RIGHT] Glares[/RIGHT]

[RIGHT]
A smoke detector goes off in the kitchen.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]
[RIGHT]
Grins [/RIGHT]

Breakfast is ready.

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

[RIGHT] Comes out from the kitchen and places a plate
Of pancakes on the table.[/RIGHT]

I made pancakes.

[RIGHT]The four grab some pancakes and place
Them on their plates. They start to eat.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Steven[/CENTER]

These aren't actually that bad today Anne.

[RIGHT]Eats another bite.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Anne [/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Smiles happily[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

Yeah she actually is not trying to poison us today.

[RIGHT]Laughs[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Kicks Gir again under the table.[/RIGHT]

All right people, enough bickering and act like a happy family.

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

More like a dysfunctional one.

[CENTER]Steven[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Sighs [/RIGHT]

Come on, guys. Can't we all get along? Beside we got to open up shop in a half-hour.

[RIGHT]For the rest of the meal they sit quietly and eat.[/RIGHT]

Well, it's done rather well overall, and the character's personalities are very obvious, witch is a good thing in my opinion. I like the 'couple of average people and a shop' kind of attitude.

Though I must ask, why does Anne have bunny ears? heh heh, just wondering.

Citicism, criticism... the dialogue is a little generic, but then again, most play dialogues are. Also, it seemed a little short for an entire act, though it looks long when it's typed.

Danielle, Gir, and Steven stare strangely at her[/RIGHT].

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Points at Anne.[/RIGHT]

And that?s the girl you want to marry. You know you can take it back now and plead temporary insanity. Many would believe that.

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Hit Gir with a spool of ribbon.[/RIGHT]

Don?t you go ruining everything for them. I bet you said that about us, too. Didn?t you.

[CENTER]Radio[/CENTER]

We interrupt this song to bring a special announcement?.

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Screams at the radio.[/RIGHT]

What could be so important that you interrupt eurithmics?

[CENTER]Radio[/CENTER]

All around the world cats are being stolen from homes, alleyways, and pet store. Who could be doing such a thing you wonder? Well it is an evil mad genius bent on taking over the world. He had been holding the cats? hostage and he have sent his demands to the world leaders. His demands are the world. Sometime earlier he had this to say.. ?If you ever want to see the cats again you will hand over the world to Me..? He than proceed to laugh evilly. What are we to do?

[RIGHT]The group had gathered around the radio.[/RIGHT]
[CENTER]
Anne[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Shocked[/RIGHT]

This is horrible we have to do something.
[CENTER]
Steven[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Looks at Gir and get a devilish grin on his face.[/RIGHT]

What kind of guy wouldn?t want to steal a whole lot of P*ssy?

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Gives Steven a high five.[/RIGHT]

Good one Dude.

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Puts her hand one her hips.[/RIGHT]

Come on guys this is serious.

[RIGHT]Gir and Steven frown[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

[CENTER]Puts a fist in the air.[/CENTER]

We should go save them.

[RIGHT]Lights flash and the four takes off their
Aprons and bring out objects. Anne grabs
A can of Scrub?N?Bubbles, Gir grabs a
T-square, Danielle brings out a whip, and
Steven grabs a pair of pink fuzzy handcuffs. [/RIGHT]

[RIGHT]They do a flashy pose.[/RIGHT]

BLUE STAR FLOWER POWER!

[CENTER]Steven[/CENTER]

Why did we choose such a girl super hero name?

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Looks at the handcuffs.[/RIGHT]

Aren?t they mine?

[CENTER]Steven[/CENTER]

I thought they were ours.

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[RIGHT]Jumps back away from Danielle.[/RIGHT]

Why did you bring the whip out? What did I do now?

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]
[RIGHT]
Looks at the whip.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]

Oh this old thing. I had it for forever.

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]

[CENTER]Anne[/CENTER]
[RIGHT]
Gets a weird look on her face.[/RIGHT]

[CENTER]Gir[/CENTER]

[CENTER]Danielle[/CENTER]
