Morty enters the theater where Cass is building. Probably screwing in the decking.
“VRRRR!” goes the drill.
M: O.K. Cass, Help is here! What are we building?
C: Nothing. Go home. I don’t need help.
M: But your email said today was a work call.
C: “Work Call” i what I say when I don’t want people in the space! If I’d wanted people here, I’d have said there’d be pizza.
M: (dejected) But I brought my own hammer.
Cass and Steve are carrying plywood down a flight of stairs.
C: I would eat all the unlabeled food in the backstage fridge.
S: Gross. Uh … I would design a show using only “Girl From Ipanema.”
C: (off) Nice. I would build an entire set using only stripped screws.
S: I would eat my breakfast everyday from the slop sink.
Morty meets them at the bottom of the stairs.
M: What are you talking about?
C: We’re playing “What Would You Do for a Loading Dock?”
Cass is wielding a hammer at the work bench.
Narrator: Sometimes you have to hit it with a hammer until it breaks. Sometimes “IT” is a stuffed animal.
Cass is hitting a teddy bear with that hammer. Yikes.
C: I have a weird job.
Morty is giving Cass some set notes.
M: We need to add 7 feet to the stage left platform before tomorrow without spending any more money, and it needs to be sturdy enough to be danced on.
Cass whips out the golden triangle chart. You can have two of the three: Good, cheap or quick. Good and quick is expensive. Cheap and quick is low quality. Cheap and good is slow.
C: As the chart clearly shows, if you want it quick and cheap, it won’t be good.
Morty writes in her book while Cass threatens her with a pointer.
“Scribble, scribble,” goes Morty’s pencil.
C: I see your unrealistic expectations and raise you one chart!
Morty reveals the flow chart she was making. It says: The Sm told you to do something -> Blah blah blah. Excuses, charts -> DO IT!
M: I can do that, too.
Cass is alone in the theatre. She looks right. She looks left.
C: Hrmm …
C: (with spooky fingers) MACB —
Morty pops up from the seats and puts her hand over Cass’ mouth.
“!,” denotes the surprise of Cass.
M: Finish that word and we are going to have problems.
