GK:.....brought to you by Beebopareebop Rhubarb Pie.

You're walking through a meadow (TR WHISTLING) and through a herd of sheep (SHEEP) and you walk through the meadow and all of a sudden (TR HORROR) there is a cliff beneath your feet (WIND IN VAST SPACE, SURF BELOW) and a thousand feet straight down is the ocean (TR HORROR) and you're on the edge of the cliff (TR HORROR, WAVING ARMS) and you're trying to keep your balance but (TR HORROR INTO REVERB) you fall slowly off the cliff and (SS: Honey.....honey......TR SNORES AND SNORTS: What?) you're on the floor beside your bed (TR WAKING CONFUSION) and the quilt is wrapped around you and (SS: Good morning) and this is a dream you have often and also the dream in which you're about to give a speech and the emcee is introducing you (FN W P.A. ECHO: ....and now, a man who needs no introduction, Chuck Abernathy) and you look in your jacket pocket (TR; Oh my gosh, where is it? Where is it?) (HEART POUNDING) and the speech is not there, and you're there at the microphone with no idea what to do. (TR: So---------there were these two penguins----- and one penguin said to the other......) and you feel like a small cat (MEOW) in a room full of Rottweilers (BLOODTHIRSTY SNARL) ----- all winter you slept soundly ---- winter is good sleeping weather ---- bears do it, frogs do it, so did you, but now it's spring and your body is full of hormones


I'm wild again

Beguiled again

My hair has been beautifully styled again....

GK: And now in May, with the bedroom windows opened, you are dreaming up a storm (LIGHTNING, THUNDER) ----

TR: Wow, look at that lightning.

SS: It's good we found this old deserted farmhouse to take shelter in.

TR: Yes. When the car ran out of gas, there it was, close by. What luck.

SS: What's that strange smell? Is that the smell of rotting flesh?

TR: Oh no, I don't think so. Why would there be the smell of---- (FN ZOMBIE GRUNTING) --- you know, you're right. It's rotting flesh all right.


GK: And then suddenly you're in your B-27 (AIRCRAFT ENGINE, INTERIOR) over Belgium and out of the clouds above (PLANE , MACHINE GUNS) comes that Messerschmidt and you push the stick to the left (PLANE GOES INTO SCREAMING DIVE) and you take her down, down, down, and (EXPLOSION) you're hit and you're out the door (SLIPSSTREAM) and you pull the ripcord (PARACHUTE OPENS) and you float down, down, down, and those trees are coming closer and closer and (TR GERMAN, OFF) that Nazi is raising his rifle and getting a bead on you but the wind carries you over behind that barn (FALL, OOPH) and there she is, the lady of the French Resistance (SS WHISPERS:

Quand il me prend dans ses bras

Il me parle tout bas,

Je vois la vie en rose.

And she leads you out across the minefield (FOOTSTEPS, SS WHISPER: Courage, mon amour. Courage.) (OWL) and it's very dark but you're brave because you're in love and you walk through the minefield and up a hill and you come over the top of the hill and there's nobody there, just (SHEEP) some sheep and you walk on a little farther and then suddenly (TR HORROR. WIND. SURF BELOW) ---- yep, it's the edge of that cliff again. (RHUBARB THEME)

Wouldn't this be a good time for a piece of rhubarb pie?
