Family Movie Day

- A Short Play In One Act

Ticket Counter Lady: How can I help you?

Me: I'd like tickets, three, to . . . the 1:30 showing of . . . Night at the Museum.

Ticket Counter Lady: That show is sold out. We have seats available at the 2:00.

Me: How is availability to the 1:45 Terminator?

Gwynyth: No!

Shana: I hate opening weekend.

Me: Come on, Gwynyth! It's like killer robots with The Transformers and Batman!

Gwynyth: No! Night at the Museum is EDUCATIONAL!

Me: Sure, until killer robots take over and you need to know what to do and all you've got is what Robin Williams told you to do as Teddy Roosevelt. Robin Williams! Not Chuck Norris!

Shana: I told you opening weekend is always a bad idea.

Me: Three tickets to the 2:00 museum thing.

Ticket Counter Lady: That'll be waaaaaay too much money for this experience. Or, really, any experience.

minus 1 point for choosing NatM over T:S. How dare you call yourself a geek!
May our machine overlords bring you a swift death! Cause you won't even know how to contact the resistance.
