Bear in Space Part III
A short time later –
Louie: LUNCH! Everybody report back in an hour. Then we tear down the set and go home.
KevieBear to himself: I just don’t understand. Why are they making me do these things? I’m the star.
Everyone goes to find something to eat, leaving a curious KevieBear alone on the set. He decides to look around.
KevieBear: Wow! Look at that! Louie told me that parts of the console were from the original Star Trek TV show set. I wonder if the buttons and lights work?
Wow! This is great!
I wonder if these buttons work?
Ooh wooo… oh woo woo woo woo…. to boldly go where no man has gone before.
KevieBear: Boy. That was fun. But tiring. And hot. Phew. That feels better just taking off the hood. I think I’ll rest a few minutes while I wait for the others to come back.
KevieBear: Uh oh.
KevieBear hears a creaking sound. Creak. Crack. CRASH!! The set falls over and KevieBear falls off. Fortunately he lands on his feet.
Louie: WHAT THE #$@%&*^%& HAPPENED HERE??!!
KevieBear: (Uh oh. Someone’s gonna be in trouble now. I wouldn’t want to be one of the carpenters for anything in the world.) Well, Louie, I was leaning up against the side wall of the shuttlecraft and it fell right over.
Louie: It did??? It just fell right over on it’s own??
KevieBear: Yes. Right over. It’s lucky I wasn’t hurt.
Louie: You… you… #$^%&^%$. Get your things and get out! Do you know how much that set cost?? Do you? Go back to the office and explain yourself. Right now!
KevieBear to the crew: That’s right! Get out! You should be glad the studio attorneys aren’t suing you. Good riddance!
Louie to KevieBear: I was talking to YOU. Put on your hat and space shoes. You’re coming back to the office with me. You’re going to explain yourself to John!
KevieBear: Me? What did *I* do?
Louie: What did… #%$$#*&^%^.
KevieBear and Louie go back to the office to find John.
Louie: %*&$#@!! Forget John. I’m telling you myself. GET OUT BEFORE I THROW YOU OUT!
KevieBear: You’re picking on the wrong bear, pal. My friend John isn’t going to like how you’re treating me. Where did Holly go? She’ll tell you who I am. You’ll be lucky to still have a job after treating me this way! In fact, you just wait until I tell my mother! You’re gonna be sorry.
Louie: %*&$#@!! and stay out!!!
KevieBear sees John.
KevieBear: JOHN! Am I glad to see you. There was a small incident on the… ACK! JOHN! What are you doing??
John aka the Stranger/producer/actor: DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT SET COST TO BUILD? AND NOW IT’S RUINED! THE ENTIRE MOVIE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE SCRAPPED NOW! IT’S OVER! FINISHED!
KevieBear: I know. I’m as angry as you are. I wouldn’t hire that crew again if I were you. I know this was a shock, but at least I wasn’t hurt. That’s good news, isn’t it?
John: GET YOUR BIG SHOES AND YOUR RIDICULOUS SPACE SUIT AND YOUR RIDICULOUS PURPLE GLASSES AND GET OUT OF MY OFFICE! IF I EVER SEE YOU AGAIN, I’LL HAVE YOU ARRESTED!
Louie: Do you need help getting out the door, bear?
Another Lovely Lady enters the room: This the bear? Someone told me he’s the star of the movie. I thought I was the star of the movie.
KevieBear whips off his space hat and says hello. KevieBear loves the ladies.
KevieBear: Hi there. What’s your name?
Lovely Lady: I’m Dawne Woods and if you think you’re getting higher billing than me, you’re mistaken and stop sitting on me. I’m allergic to ratty old fur.
Louie: He’s not the star of anything. He’s on the way out the door right now.
Dawne: In that case… Isn’t he just the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?
Louie grabs KevieBear and throws him out the door.
KevieBear: BYE DAWNE! Call me later and we’ll have lunch. And bring Holly with yoooooooou…..
The door slams on his words.
Later that evening he tells his friend Driving Mr. Spacey! Bear about his day…
KevieBear: So then he says that he will pray that I have no permanent injuries from the shoddily built set falling on me and he apologized profusely for any trouble this day has caused me. He told me that he’ll never forget me as long as he lives and he had my newest friend Louie help me out of the building.
Driving Mr. Spacey! Bear: You must have made quite an impression on everyone!
KevieBear: Yes. I guess I did. My mother says I’m special that way.
