CAST:

Mr. Ice
PROPS/COSTUMES:
Counter, ice cream scoop. Costumes: White paper hat and white apron with ice cream stains on it (for Mr. Ice).

SETTING: An ice cream shop.

(Girl is standing at an ice cream counter. Mr. Ice is standing behind the counter.)

Girl:
Hmmmm... what do I want... there's SO much to choose from.

Mr. Ice:
Over 50 flavors!

Girl:
Wow! I don't know how I'll ever pick! What do you have?

Mr. Ice:
Strawberry, Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip...

Girl:
(Girl puts hand on her hip.)

Wait! Don't tell me all the boring regular flavors! I want to hear the cool ones!

Mr. Ice:
Sure, no problem! We have Pistachio, Marshmallow Mash, Moose...

Girl:
Wait!

Mr. Ice:
(Looking confused.)

What?

Girl:
I was wondering...do you have samples?

Mr. Ice:
Nooooo.

Girl:
Not just the teensiest, eensiest taste?

Mr. Ice:
Sorry.

Girl:
Well, go on.

Mr. Ice:
We have orange sherbet, lemon sherbet, raspberry...

Girl:
Stop!

Mr. Ice:
What?!

Girl:
Don't list the sherbets... I don't like those.

Mr. Ice:
O.K. We have Tin Roof Sundae, Caramel Fudge Butter Cream Twist, Bavarian Whip, Chocolate Crunch...

Girl:
Hold it!

Mr. Ice:
What now?!

Girl:
Does the Chocolate Crunch have nuts in it? Because if it has nuts in it, I don't want it. I don't like nuts, so don't list any of the ones with nuts in them, okey dokey?

Mr. Ice:
(Looking annoyed.)

Okey dokey, we have Lemon Munch, Watermelon Blast...

Girl:
Hold on...

Mr. Ice:
(Rolls his eyes.)

What NOW?

Girl:
(With a thoughtful frown.)

I'm not in a fruity mood, so leave out all the ones with fruit in them ok?

Mr. Ice:
(Losing patience.)

Fine, we have Bubble Gum, Monster Mash, Rocky Road, Hog Heaven, Chocolate Peanut Marshmallow Swirl...

Girl:
Stop!

Mr. Ice:
(Sounding very agitated.)

What is it!?!

Girl:
Well I was just wondering if you could tell me what all the flavors tasted like.

Mr. Ice:
I don't KNOW!

Girl:
(In disbelief.)

You work here and you don't know?

Mr. Ice:
Hey over 50 flavors takes a while to eat!

Girl:
(Still doubtful.)

I guess so. So what else do you have?

Mr. Ice:
That's it.

Girl:
That was NOT over 50 flavors.

Mr. Ice:
If you leave out all the sherbets, the ones that are ordinary and have nuts or fruit it is.

Girl:
As usual, I'll just go with my favorite.

Mr. Ice:
Which is?

Girl:
Vanilla, of course!

(Mr. Ice looks at the audience in disbelief. He falls over backward with an utterance of extreme disbelief.)

Girl:
(Looks over the counter and then back at the audience.)

I wonder what his problem is?
