Scene I Former Owner
Luanne and Patterson meet Reverend Stroup in her office that day to confirm this sudden revelation. Reverend Stroup reads some documents laying out Pattersons priorities on the puppets.
Reverend Stroup: Gee, it looks like this man is telling the truth, Luanne.
Patterson: That is right. I had to surrender the poor marionettes back in 1964 to save some personal finances.
But forty-plus years later, I hear that Patterson Puppets have found new life in the form of a Christian puppet show, which I think is adorable. And as the original owner of these commodities, I would like a fair share of wealth from their newly-discovered recognition.
Reverend Stroup: Uhwhat do you say, Luanne? Its all up to you.
Luanne looks up at Patterson, as he looks back at her with an innocent glaze in his eyes.
Luanne: UmI dont know...
Everyone looks confused, not knowing what to do.
The next day, after work, Luanne, Connie, Hank, Joseph, Bobby, Lucky, and Maria all assemble in the Hills living room.
Hank: So youre saying that this guy comes out of the blue and claims ownership of the Manger Babies?
Luanne: Uh-huh. I feel that since I helped his puppets regain recognition after forty-three years, I owe him some recognition for the shows success.
Bobby: But theyre your puppets. Dad bought them for you at a garage sale before Superbowl XXXII.
Maria: He could just be some gold-digger looking to rip you off for everything youve got.
Lucky: Luanne, baby, I have no experience in show biz, but I do know where entertainment is going these days. Its best you be careful how much control you give to this feller.
Joseph: His input could majorly affect the quality of the show.
Luanne: Well, I meet with him again tomorrow, so its not a done deal yet.
Connie: Whatever decision you make, were right behind you, Luanne.
Luanne receives momentary consolation from her family and friends.
Scene II The Vision
That night, Luanne is combing her hair while she and Lucky are getting ready for bed.
Lucky: So, have you made up your mind about the Manger Babies yet?
Luanne: No, Lucky. Tomorrow will be a new day; hopefully by then, I can think about this more clearly. (places her brush down)
Lucky: Youve been working pretty hard lately. You got your job at the barbershop and at the church. And youll be having a third job as a mother pretty soon. Maybe its time for a little delegation?
Luanne: Ill think about it
