LITTLE LIBERTY
I just find it hard to believe that Dr. Medlo is no longer in the business.

JUSTICE KITTEN
But shouldn't that be a good thing? I mean, Suburbiaville is free from the clutches of evil. No longer shall the—

HANK
Haven't you heard "the idle hand is the devil's playground?" What have you been doing with all your free time, JK?

JUSTICE KITTEN
Well, I have... plans... I have a life outside of crime fighting.

LITTLE LIBERTY
All she does is watch Cartoon Network and wash the JusticeMobile. How clean does it need to be, JK? 90% of the time you have it in invisible mode so you can park for free!

JUSTICE KITTEN
Shut up!

HANK
It's worse than I thought. We need to break those two up, ladies, or we're doomed. I have no marketable skills. All I am qualified to be is an evil henchman.

LITTLE LIBERTY
I agree. Just tell us your plan, Hank, and we will do what we can to help.

HANK
Oh, yeah. A plan. I knew I forgot something. Hmm... A plan... A plan... What would Dr. Medlo do?

JUSTICE KITTEN
Try tenting your fingers and laughing.

He does.

JUSTICE KITTEN (CONT'D)
Anything?

HANK
No. Not yet. But it's a start. Let's all try this. We're bound to come up with something.

They all attempt tenting their fingers and laughing.

LITTLE LIBERTY
Steal some plutonium and blow her up!

JUSTICE KITTEN
I think that might be a bit extreme, Little Liberty.

HANK
But it is something Dr. Medlo would do.

SCENE 4: Mrs. Medlo is in the basement laboratory, folding laundry. Dr. Medlo enters.

MRS. MEDLO
Hi, sweetbrain. How was your date with Holly?

DR. MEDLO
Fine.

MRS. MEDLO
She's such a nice girl.

DR. MEDLO
Yes.

MRS. MEDLO
And pretty.

DR. MEDLO
Yes.

MRS. MEDLO
A pretty girl like that must have had lots of boyfriends. I hope you're using condoms.

DR. MEDLO
Yes—wha? Mom!

MRS. MEDLO
This is a very dangerous time for casual sex, Milo. Sure, when I met your father, a girl could scr—

DR. MEDLO
Mother, please!

MRS. MEDLO
Don't get me wrong, sweetie. I think she's a great gal, but you never know these days. Why, your friend Hank told me just the other day—

DR. MEDLO
Hank? What's Hank been saying about Holly?

MRS. MEDLO
Nothing. He's such a nice boy. If he'd only comb his hair, I'm sure he'd find a girlfriend for himself.

DR. MEDLO
Mom, what did Hank say to you about Holly?

MRS. MEDLO
I'm sorry I couldn't get the bloodstains out of your good lab coat. But, if you had told me about them instead of just tossing it into the hamper I could've pretreated it first and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

DR. MEDLO
Are we having a conversation, mom?!

MRS. MEDLO
I'm right here, Milo. There's no need to yell.
