SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON. CLASSROOM. The teacher has released his students for the day; as he walks to the front of the room and starts to get ready for the next week, he notices fifth grade boy lingering behind in the classroom.
JOEY: Mr. Z, I’m sorry about talking so much in class today. I know why you sent me to Australia .
TEACHER: Well, you do know that I still like you, right?
TEACHER: You know, deep in my heart I have a little room that has the name ‘Joey’ engraved on the door.
TEACHER: Yep, I keep it locked.
JOEY: Yeah, you have to contain that ferocious and dangerous monster that’s in there, right?
TEACHER: Well, I have to keep myself safe somehow…
JOEY: You better add some extra locks.
