Scene
SETTING:   The Easter Bunny’s photo station at the mall.
AT RISE:  BRENDA and NELSON face the unseen Easter Bunny.  NELSON is snapping pictures with his camera.

BRENDA
Look at Daddy, sweetheart.

NELSON
Over here!

            (He takes a picture.)

 BRENDA
She wasn’t looking.

NELSON
Of course she’s not looking.  She’s terrified.

BRENDA
There’s nothing to be afraid of, doll baby.  Mommy is right here.  The Easter Bunny is nice.  Be a good girl and Mommy will give you a special treat.

NELSON
            (Snapping a photo.)
Got it.

BRENDA
Her eyes were closed.  Take another.

NELSON
Look at the long line.  I think we’re done here.

BRENDA
We waited in that long line and now it is our turn.  All of our friends can’t wait to see how big Mommy’s little angel is getting.  Don’t stick out your tongue like that, honey.

 NELSON
            (Taking another photo.)
That one was a keeper.  Now let’s go.

BRENDA
Give the Easter Bunny a kiss, lovey.  Wouldn’t that be cute?

NELSON
I don’t-

BRENDA
Oh!  I don’t think the Easter Bunny wants to be licked there, angel!

NELSON
Oh shit!  I think she just peed on the Easter Bunny.

BRENDA
He’s a professional.  He can take it.

NELSON
This was clearly a bad idea.

BRENDA
One more picture.

 NELSON
The bunny is covered in piss.

BRENDA
You can Photoshop out the urine stain.  Look at me!  Who’s Mommy’s precious princess? Oh, sweetie!  Please stop humping the Easter Bunny’s leg.

NELSON
 Bad dog!
