Post Orphanage Scene
Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone who has the Annie script could give me the dialogue for the first Orphanage Scene... right before "Maybe". It would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks!!!

I had to read for it on Saturday, but I don't have the script with me. I'll give you an idea...I hope I get it close:

Molly: Mama! Mama!

Pepper: Shut up!

Duffy: Is it possible to get any sleep around here?

Molly: Mommy! Mama!

Pepper: I said shut your trap, Molly!

July: Leave the poor kid alone. She ain't doing you no harm.

Pepper: She's keeping me awake!

July: You're keeping us awake!

Pepper: I am not!

[they fight]

July: Think you're Jack Dempsey, do ya?

Pepper: And you're looking for a knuckle sandwich.

---

I don't remember what comes after this. Annie comforts Molly and stuff and then they read her note...and stuff..

If this needs to be taken down, please tell me!

I have the script right here with me... it's kinda long..but here it is:

Molly: Mama! Mama! Mommy!
Pepper:Shut up!
Duffy: Can't anybody get any sleep around here?
Molly:: Mama. Mommy.
Pepper: I said, shut your trap, Molly.
July: Ahh, stop shovin' the poor kid. She aint doin' nuthin' to you.
Pepper: She's keepin' me awake, ain't she?
July: No, you're keeping us awake-
Pepper: I am not!
July: You are too!...Ah, ya think you're Jack Dempsey, do ya?
Pepper: And you're lookin' for a knuckle sandwich.
Tessie: Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, they're fighting, and won't get no sleep all night. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness.
Annie: Pipe down, all of ya. Go back to sleep.
Molly: Mama, mommy.
Annie: It's all right, Molly. Annie's here.
Molly: It was my Mama, Annie. We was ridin' on the ferry boat. And she was holdin' me up so see all the big ships. And then she was walkin' away, wavin'. And I couldn't find her no more. Any place.
Annie: Blow. It was only a dream, honey. Now, you gotta go back to sleep. It's after three o'clock.
Molly: Annie...read me your note.
Annie: My note? Again?
Molly: please
Annie: Sure, Molly.
Pepper: Here it comes again. Aargh!
Annie: "Please take good care of our little darling. Her name is Annie.
Duffy: "She was born on October 28. We will be back to get her soon."
Pepper: "We have left half of a silver locket around her neck and kept the other half..."
Pepper, Duffy, and Kate:..so that when we come back for her you will know that she's our baby."
Tessie: Oh my goodness, now they're laughing.
Annie:All right. Do you wanna sleep with your teeth inside your mouth or out!
Molly: Gee, I dream about havin' a mother and father agin. But you're lucky. You really got em.
Annie: I know. Somewhere. Somewhere

N then "Maybe" starts. Hope this helped! :D

Its interesting just by looking at this portion at the script how I can detect the character dynamics. Interesting...

Well to be honest that is the point of the script. The orphans get so little stage time as separate characters rather than a single entity that all characters have to be made obvious as quickly as possible.
And the general rule of thumb for theatre (and probably film as well) is that if a line isn't completely necessary for furthering the story/development of a character, the line goes. End of.

Yes, I at least know enough about theater to know the point of scripting, just to point that out. You are right, though.

Sorry, that came out really bitchily. I didn't mean to be horrible, I was just having an off day and took it out on what I saw as an inane, pointless comment. Please accent my apologies.

It's perfectly fine, my friends talk to me like that sometimes. fustrate them sometimes to the ends of the earth, but we usually get along because we're so close.
