Voice #1: Go on and see.
Voice #2: Okay, but it's awfully dark out here.

Voice #1: What happened? I heard a bump.
Voice #2: Oh, it's just me. I tripped over that broken chair.
Voice #1: An old broken chair? Can't you take that to the dump?
Voice #2: Not in the dark, I can't. Now leave me alone! (Pause. Light shines around.) Sure is dark out here ... (Pause.) Wait a minute? Did you hear a little, tiny bark?

Puppy: Can you give me directions to the park? Rrruff!
