File 5: The Case of Coco’s Potions
INTERIOR GRANNY EVE’S KITCHEN
GRANNY EVE (with her ear to the 1930’s radio): Really, M.C.? She’s up to it again? More perfume? Hidden formula? (pause)…. Yes, I agree, we can send the children to uncover the formula for Chanel No. 5 perfume. The world has a right to know!
RAY (walking up to Granny): What do we need to know, Grans? (pause) Are we out of chocolate covered Cheetos? That would be awful.
POPPI (enters the kitchen): What’s up? Why do you both look so flustered?
GRANNY EVE: Listen to me. This is important. There is a potion with a secret formula that needs to be revealed.
RAY: Let me guess. We’ll need the Periodic Table like always and yada yada yada save the world. …..
GRANNY EVE: Well, yes. How did you know?
POPPI: How are we going to figure out the secret formula of a potion?
RAY (with a snorkel and mask on his face): That’s easy lil’ sis. We’ll swim around in the potion and introduce ourselves to all the ingredients.
POPPI: But I’m not a good swimmer!
