SCENE 1: 
MISSED CALL

SOUND: Dialing. Then ringing. Then an answer

ANSWERING MACHINE: Hello! Thank you for calling support for the Never Rad Miscellany. This call may be recorded or monitored for quality assurance, and total compliance. Please select from the following language options.

SOUND: A distorted explosion.

SOUND: Gun fire.

SOUND: Beeping computer noises.

ANSWERING MACHINE: Para español, diga Lechuga, or stay on the line for English.

A pause.

ANSWERING MACHINE: I’m sorry, I didn’t catch that. Proceeding in English. Please listen carefully as our menu options have changed within the last century. For a technical issue, please say “Technical.” For an emotional issue, please say “I’m so sad.”

A pause.

ANSWERING MACHINE: I’m sorry to hear that you are so sad. All of our representatives are currently busy being devoured by Orgelthrek, master of darkness and purveyor of galactic destruction in the Twin Star Nebula. To swear fealty to Orgelthrek, say (demon sounds from hell). To remain independent and speak to a representative, stay on the line and we will be happy to assist you as soon as possible. Your time is valuable to us. Your estimated wait time is fifteen minutes. Get up. Stretch your legs. Get another drink. Inhale burning tobacco, etc. A representative will be with you soon.

MFX: Hold music begins. In the background, back masking and other eerie sounds play. The music lasts for fifteen minutes.
