Lights come up to two women. Woman 2 is holding a doggy sweater and Woman 1 who is dressed like a Goth girl and is holding a Voodoo doll and has a really surprised look on her face.

WOMAN 1: I can’t believe that actually worked.

WOMAN 2: I can’t believe that you killed my dog.

WOMAN 1: I didn’t kill your dog.

WOMAN 2: Excuse me? Who was the one that held a voodoo doll in the air and yelled out, “In the name of the spirits take this dog!”

WOMAN 01: Like that was suppose to do anything.

WOMAN 2: Well obviously it did do something. Like kill my dog. (Starts crying) Ah, BooBoo Babykins.

WOMAN 1: The dogs name was BooBoo Babykins?

WOMAN 2: Yes, what of it?

WOMAN 1: Nothing, it’s just a very stupid name for a dog. Are you sure the mutt didn’t off itself?

WOMAN 2: For your information she wasn’t a mutt, she was a pedigree Irish Palma-doodle-wawa. And yes I’m sure that the dog didn’t off herself by spontaneously exploding into smoke seconds after you asked the spirits to take her.

WOMAN 1: Like I said that wasn’t suppose to happen. Plus, you asked me to do it.

WOMAN 2 :I most certainly did not.

WOMAN 1: You picked this up and said, “What’s this used for?”

WOMAN 2: You could have just told me. A live demonstration was not required.

WOMAN 1: Well, some things are hard to explain.

WOMAN 2: Like why you killed my dog?

WOMAN 1: I didn’t kill your dog.

Shows her the empty doggy sweater.

WOMAN 2: Well, how do you explain this?

WOMAN 1: Bad fashion sense.

WOMAN 2: I can’t believe that you’re joking about this!

WOMAN 1: I’m not joking, it’s an ugly ass sweater.

WOMAN 2: It is not. She looks absolutely adorable in it.

WOMAN 1: Don’t you mean used to.

WOMAN 2: (Starts crying) Oh god, BooBoo Babykins! Don’t worry, I shall avenge you.

WOMAN 1: What are you doing?

WOMAN 2: Talking to my dog.

WOMAN 1: Oh, then you’ll need this.

Hands her the VooDoo Doll.

WOMAN 2: Oh thanks. I shall… (realizes what she’s holding and throws it back to Woman 1) Oh no you don’t. Don’t try to drag me down to your level, dog killer.

WOMAN 1: I didn’t kill your dog. What I did shouldn’t have done anything. Watch.

Lifts the VooDoo Doll up in the air.

WOMEN 2: What are you doing?

WOMEN 1: Demonstrating that I didn’t do anything.

WOMEN 2: Don’t you think you’ve demonstrated enough for one day.

WOMEN 1: Oh, for Heavens sakes.

Woman 2 ducks down.

WOMEN 2: At least give a countdown.

WOMAN 1: Okay fine, 3,2,1… in the name of the spirits, give me a million dollars.

Nothing happens.

WOMAN 1: (CONT’D) See? Nothing.

WOMAN 2: Then how do you explain this and don’t you dare make another joke about how ugly the sweater is.

WOMAN 1: So now you’re admitting how ugly it is.

WOMEN 2: No, because it’s not ugly, it’s adorable. And quit trying to change the subject.

WOMEN 1: I’m not trying to change the subject. I didn’t do anything that would have killed your Foofoo Baby.

WOMEN 2: That’s BooBoo Babykins.

WOMEN 1: Whatever, it was a faggity ass dog, with a faggity ass name, with a faggity ass sweater.

WOMEN 2: I’m sensing a lot of hostility. Are all satanist this cranky?

WOMEN 1: I’m not a satanist.

WOMEN 2: Oh, I’m sorry, is that not PC? How about supernaturally Canine challenged. Does that do it for you?

WOMEN 1: You know, you’re being a real jerk all of the sudden.

WOMEN 2: You killed my dog. How else am I suppose to act?

WOMEN 1: For the last time I didn’t kill your dog.

WOMEN 2: Well something happened to her.

WOMEN 1: Listen, this is just a cheap doll that I bought as a joke in Tijuana. It doesn’t have any supernatural powers associated with it. I have no idea what happened to your dog, but it didn’t have anything to do with me. I don’t have any other way I can explain it better than that. And if you don’t believe me then you can just drop dead.

Woman 2 drops dead on the floor. Woman 1 looks at Woman 2 for a second and then the doll.

WOMEN 1: (CONT’D) Ah crap.

Woman 1 puts the doll down by Woman 2 and runs off stage.
