Scene 1

Scene 1

  • It looks like we accidentally turned on an infomercial instead of the movie.
  • It's called Tappy Tibbons' Months of Fury.
  • An audience chants over and over, "Juice by Tappy! Juice by Tappy! Juice by Tappy!"
  • Tappy Tibbons himself introduces a woman named Mary, prompting the audience to change their chant.
  • "Juice by Mary! Juice by Mary! Juice by Mary!"
  • The picture turns to fuzz.
  • Turns out we were watching the movie all along.
  • A young man named Harold has unplugged the TV.
  • He's going to sell his mother's TV, but she has chained it to the wall. Seems like he's done this before.
  • Ma hides in her bedroom while Harold yells at her for making him feel guilty.
  • She slides the key to the TV chain under the door, and he rolls the TV away.
  • How's she going to watch her infomercials now?
