Science Time With Beege


INT. SKWISHEE'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - LATE AFTERNOON

SKWISHEE reads on the couch, while BEEGE and KEE play with vibrant pink play dough at the dining table. Skwishee glances at the girls playing and smiles. Skwishee closes her book and places it on the coffee table in front of her. She stands and leaves the room.


INT. KITCHEN - CONTINUOUS

Skwishee hums to herself as she turns to the sink and begins to wash the towering pile of dishes that are haphazardly placed in the sink. Kee laughs (off screen)

SEVERAL MINUTES LATER. Skwishee continues to wash dishes. Beege laughs (O.S)

SEVERAL MINUTES LATER. Skwishee continues to wash dishes. Skwishee turns off the water and begins to dry the dishes on the dish rack. Kee SCREAMS (O.S). Skwishee throws down the dish towel and runs out of the room.


INT. LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS

Beege is seated at the dining table facing the kitchen door; she appears unconcerned. Kee is sitting opposite, her back to the kitchen door.


SKWISHEE
(running to Kee)
What happened?

KEE
(begins to cry loudly and turns to Skwishee)

SKWISHEE
(checks Kee for obvious wounds. She brushes Kee's hair from her face)
What is it, sweetie? What happened?

KEE
(crying and wiping at her mouth with her hands)
Get it out!

SKWISHEE
(exasperated)
Get what out?

KEE
(opening her mouth to show gobs of pink lodged in her teeth)
The play dough! Beege made me eat it!

SKWISHEE
(admonishing)
Beege!

Skwishee scoops Kee up, and carries her from the room.


INT. BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS

Skwishee sets Kee on a stool. Skwishee tears of several sheets of toilet paper and holds them to Kee's mouth.


SKWISHEE
(soothingly, to Kee)
Try to spit it out, honey.
(louder, to Beege)
Why did you make her eat play dough!?

Disgusted, Skwishee drops the pink stained toilet paper into the toilet. Skwishee picks up a toothbrush and puts on some toothpaste from the tube on the side of the sink. She stands Kee in front of the sink and begins to brush her teeth. Beege does not answer.

SKWISHEE
(frustrated, to Beege)
Well!? Why did you make her eat play dough!?

KEE
(sniffling)
She ate some first.

BEEGE (O.S)
(abashed)
No I didn't. I just pretended to, so she would eat some.
(pause)
I just wanted to see what it tasted like.

Skwishee closes her eyes, and sighs deeply.

BEEGE
(coming to the door of the bathroom)
So it's gross, huh? Interesting.

  1. Too funny! The problem with play-dough is it smells so good (the store bought stuff, anyway).

    1. Judging from all the hacking and gagging, I'm pretty sure Kee learned her lesson - about the play dough anyway.

      Whether or not she'll eat the next thing her sister suggests? Well, we'll see. :\

  2. This cracked me up. Too funny. My mom used to make playdough out of flour and salt. That stuff tasted awesome!
