INT – THE LABORATORY AT CASTLE FRANCOPHILE, NIGHT
(VECTOR VAN FRANCOPHILE, ALGORE)
SCATTERED ABOUT THE LABORATORY, AMONGST THE TEST TUBES AND VIALS AND LAB PARAPHERNALIA ARE MANY ANIMALS AND PARTS OF ANIMALS. WORKING ON A SLAB IS PROFESSOR VECTOR VAN FRANCOPHILE, THE MAD SCIENTIST OF THE PLOT. BY HIS SIDE IS ALGORE, A HUNCHBACK WITH TWO HUMPS. AS FRANCOPHILE WORKS ON HIS AS YET UNSEEN PROJECT, BLOOD SPATTERS IN HIS FACE.
Yes, Prof. Francophile?
Fetch me the hacksaw, boy. And bring me some more lobsters.
Yes, Prof. Francophile!
FRANCOPHILE LAUGHS MANIACALLY. ALGORE SCURRIES OFF.
As long as he's gone, I believe I will work on my menacing laughter.
FRANCOPHILE LAUGHS MENACINGLY.
Getting better. I've got the maniacal laughter down pat, and the evil laughter is rather good, as well. Perhaps I will work on...chortling!
FRANCOPHILE BEGINS GIGGLING. ALGORE WALKS UP BEHIND HIM, HOLDING A HACKSAW AND SOME LOBSTERS.
Dammit! What do you want?
ALGORE PROFFERS THE HACKSAW.
Oh, I sent Algore off to get the hacksaw. You can use it when he gets back.
Um, I'm back, master.
Where have you been!
FRANCOPHILE RUDELY GRABS THE HACKSAW FROM ALGORE AND THEN SMACKS HIM IN THE HEAD. HE BEGINS SAWING AT HIS PROJECTS, AS BLOOD AND EFFLUVIA SPRAYS ABOUT.
