Ernies’ Incredible Illucinations
ERNIE: (To the doctor) It started with these daydreams. You know, the sort everybody gets. Where you suddenly score a hat trick in the last five minutes of the Cup Final, or you bowl out the West Indies for ten runs – or saving your granny from a blazing helicopter, all that sort of rubbish. It was one wet Saturday afternoon and me and my mum and dad were all sitting about in the happy home having one of those exciting afternoon rave-ups we usually have in our house. (He picks up a book and pretends to read) It was all go. Mum thought Dad would be at the match. He didn’t often miss a game but they were playing away. He told mum he was not going to Birmingham. Even for United.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – White Witch
THE WHITE WITCH: Come on, faster! Maugrim will soon bring us news. Four thrones at Cair Parivel. Mmm, but if only three were occupied the prophecy would not be fulfilled. He may not stay for long, and then we could attack the three at the castle. Much better to kill him now! I would have liked to have done it at the Stone Table itself. That is the proper place. That is where it has always been done before. (Maugrim enters at speed and informs the White Witch that Peter has killed his best lieutenant.)
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – Mr Tumnus
MR TUMNUS: (Mr Tumnus returns) Now, Daughter of Eve! I wasn’t sure what you’d like, so I’ve done everything. Nice brown eggs, lightly boiled. Sardines on toast. Buttered toast. Toast with honey. And we’ll finish with sugar-topped cake. I hope that’ll do. (Watching Lucy tuck in! .. then realising and sobbing) Oh — oh — oh! I don’t suppose there’s ever been a worse Faun since the beginning of the world. My old father, now, (points to the portrait over the mantelpiece) he would never have done a thing like this. I’m in the pay of the White Witch.
Wind in the Willows
BADGER: We must be up and doing, before it is too late. You two animals will accompany me instantly to Toad Hall, and the work of rescue shall be accomplished. We’ll save the poor unhappy animal! We’ll rescue him! We’ll convert him! He’ll be the most converted Toad that ever was before we’ve done with him!
Yes indeed, the hour has come! Gentlemen – follow me! Onwards!
