Chinese Checkers (18/23)
Wed 31 December 1980
If you've been getting the inexplicable feeling that there
are giant cockroaches walking all over the sky, it's because the universe has
been shrunk to the size of a marble, and has rolled under the fridge in Dr
Wee's Time and Space dunny. But since the end of our last episode, Dr Wee has
been levitating the said fridge - said, 'flidge' - off the ground.
Magical HARP sound effect
Oooh! Hurry up and find universe before my mystical powers
get hernia! Me not levitate this flidge forever, you know!
(Everyone speaks at once, looking for the universe)
Ah, here it is, under this cockroach.
Ah, no, no - look out!
Falling, crashing sound
Now, obviously, one of us has been squashed by the fridge, so
I'm not going to read any further into the script in case it's me.
Oh, look, Doctor - your next line is "eeeuurggh".
O is it? Well I'll just cross my name out, and put yours,
What! In that case I'll cross my name out, and write, um,
No, Denis, you can't borrow my pen. Now read this!
Now look, Denis, someone has to be squashed by that fridge
and, well, we'd like it to be you. Besides, if you don't, you won't get any
yummo's for dinner.
(Everyone applauds appreciatively, O well done, etc)
Ho, your little pussy cat has been squashed by flidge!
O well done, Sherlock Holmes.
Come on, Denis.
Squeak of Denis being pulled from under the fridge
But where is universe?
O look - those cockroaches are playing soccer with it!
And one's going for a goal!
Football sounds. The roar of the crowd.
Shoot, man, shoot!
And it's a goal! Right under the bathroom door and into the
next episode of Soccer Poo-oo!
