She’s broke down another door. It’s after the crown jewels, your majesties!
(DEE DEE Monster runs across the stage wearing a crown and jewels and doing a growly laugh - GUARDS run after her)
That’s my crown! Give it back! Go get my crown, you fools!
(GUARDS runs off after DEE DEE Monster. PRINCE HENRY is laughing)
Stop laughing. It’s not funny.
(DEE DEE Monster chases GUARDS back across the stage)
It’s a little funny.
It’s not like she took your crown.
She’s a girl. She wants a girl’s crown.
(DEE DEE Monster comes in sits on the throne and does a silly princess pose)
She’s no girl. She’s a monster. A beast. A terrible creature who takes my stuff.
(DEE DEE Monster gets sad, throws off crown and leaves)
You hurt her feelings.
She hurt my crown. Look.
It’s just a little dent.
A dent? It’s ruined! I want a new one!
We will have it repaired for you.
I want it now!
Geez. Who’s the monster now?
Come along dear. You can wear my crown until it is fixed.
You mean… your Queen crown? I get to be the Queen?
Whatever will make you happy, dear.
(QUEEN and PRINCESS exit)
