VALERIE

It's genetic.

MR. DUMPLING

What?

VALERIE

It's not con-ta-gi-ous. It's ge-net-ic.

MR. DUMPLING

Oh...

VALERIE

And anyway, it's teatime.

MR. DUMPLING

So it is.

VALERIE

It's teatime, Mummy Dumpling!

MRS. DUMPLING

(Stopping her chase)
Thank the stars for that. That was such an exertion!

Stopping, Josef gathers himself up and suddenly launches his ball. It travels quite a distance.

VALERIE

Stratospheric!

MRS. DUMPLING

And a six for technique

VALERIE

That has to be some sort of record.

MR. DUMPLING

I'm going for tea
(Exit)

MRS. DUMPLING

Yes, thank you, Daddy.

VALERIE

It is a record! It is some sort of record! Yippee!

MRS. DUMPLING

Congratulations, Josef

JOSEF
T'was nothing

VALERIE

Oh, yes it was. It's a record in a record. The founding of a previously unrecorded record at the very moment that previously unrecorded record was recorded. That's TWO records!

JOSEF

I hit the double.

MRS. DUMPLING

We're all so proud of you, Josef.

JOSEF

Anyone could have done it.

VALERIE

Correction. Anyone who is anyone could have done... Now, where's that tea?


Crossfade/ Music

Mr. Dumpling enters with tea tray. Moving continuously, he takes the pot and pours four cups of tea adding appropriate milk and sugar. As he completes his task...

Music out/ Crossfade

Mrs. Dumpling, Valerie, and Josef are tightly huddled together as if Desperate.


MRS.D/VAL/JOS

(Weakly) Where's that tea?

MR. DUMPLING

(Entering) Two lumps, Josef?

JOSEF

Yes, sir

MR. DUMPLING

That's what I did. No lumps, Mrs. Dumpling?
