PENELOPE:

And this is my son, Paul. He was

only four years old when his father

disappeared.

PAUL:

(radiantly, sappily)

He's coming back, Mom! He's the

bravest, most wonderful man who

ever lived.

PENELOPE:

(to audience)

I told you this was a simple-minded

play.

PAUL:

Maybe he'll come back tonight!

It's his birthday.

PENELOPE:

I know.

PAUL:

Stay home tonight!

PENELOPE:

(ruefully, for they

have been over this before)

Oh, Paul--

PAUL:

You're married! You've already got

a husband!

PENELOPE:

He's a ghost!

PAUL:

He's alive!

PENELOPE:

Not even Mutual of Omaha thinks so

anymore.

PAUL:

If you have to go out with some

guy--can't he be more like Dad?

(sick)

Herb Shuttle and Norbert Woodly--

can't you do better than those two

freaks?

PENELOPE:

(resentfully)

Thank you, kind sir.

PAUL:

A vacuum cleaner salesman and a

fairy doctor.

PENELOPE:

A what kind of doctor?

PAUL:

A fairy--a queer. Everybody in the

building knows he's a queer.
