INT – THE FRANCOPHILE LAB
ALGORE IS JOGGING IN PLACE ON A SMALL PATCH OF GREEN CARPET. HIS HAIR IS STANDING UP SLIGHTLY FROM STATIC ELECTRICITY. HE IS TOUCHING ONE OF HIS INDEX FINGERS TO THE MONSTER. FRANCOPHILE OPENS THE DOOR TO THE LAB SO THAT THE DOORKNOB IS WITHIN ALGORE’S REACH.
Now, Algore, touch the doorknob and my creature will come to life from static electricity!
ALGORE STRAINS TO REACH THE DOORKNOB BUT JUST BARELY CAN’T REACH IT WHILE TOUCHING THE MONSTER AND JOGGIN IN PLACE ON THE CARPET.
I can't reach it, Professor Francophile!
Can't reach the doorknob! What kind of a convoluted plot device is that?
