Lay out the spoons

High-T Lady: I am your faithful servant your Majesty.
T-Bag: Yes, I know you are. Well I've got the scroll and I've got the spoons. So let's get cracking.
High-T Lady: Arr, right.
T-Bag: You lay out the spoons and I'll have another squint at this thing.
(The High-T Lady sees the spoons have gone from the box).
High-T Lady: Oh.
T-Bag: What?
High-T Lady: Nothing. The children.
T-Bag: What are you wittering about? Will you lay out the spoons and be quick about it.
High-T Lady: The spoons?
T-Bag: Yes.
High-T Lady: These spoons?
T-Bag: Well naturally these spoons.
High-T Lady: You want me to lay them out?
T-Bag: What is the matter with you? Just lay out the spoons.
High-T Lady: Oh but it's far too early for that.
T-Bag: What do you mean too early? Five minutes ago you were squawking at me to hurry.
High-T Lady: Oh yes, we must hurry but there is still much to do.
T-Bag: There is?
High-T Lady: Oh yes, you see, first of all we must plot the co-ordinates.
T-Bag: Well don't just stand there like a ninny, get plotting.

Playing for time

T-Bag: Come on, come on, what's the hold up?
High-T Lady: Oh there's no hold up, we can't rush these things.
T-Bag: What things? What are you doing?
High-T Lady: The calculations must be very precise.
T-Bag: Balderdash! I want to see those spoons laid out now.
High-T Lady: Oh but you can't lay them out too soon.
T-Bag: Alright, if you won't do it I will do it myself.
High-T Lady: You don't know what you're doing, it's not time yet.
T-Bag: Will you let go of that box.
High-T Lady: It's too early.
T-Bag: How dare you disobey me, let go of that box. (T-Bag sees the spoons are missing) Where are they?
High-T Lady: Where are what?
T-Bag: Don't play the giddy goat with me, where are the spoons?
High-T Lady: Have they gone?
T-Bag: You know full well they've gone, that's why you've been playing for time isn't it?
High-T Lady: No.
T-Bag: How could it happen, how? The children. The children were here weren't they? I knew it, I knew it. Where are they?
High-T Lady: I don't know.
T-Bag: Tell me.
High-T Lady: Alright, they were here but I don't know where they are now, I swear I don't
T-Bag: Curse and blast and double curse and blast again. I'll find them, I'll root them out. You wait here, I'll be back.

Little Horrors

(T-Bag has to get the spoons from the children before time runs out, so she calls the High-T Lady and puts her under her spell once again and she makes her a cup of tea. T-Bag drinks the tea and pours the dregs into her saucer and after a while a picture appears in the saucer of where the children are).
T-Bag: And there they are, the only question is where is there?
High-T Lady: Looks like some sort of catacomb.
T-Bag: Thatís what I was thinking. What the fudge fingers is a catacomb?
High-T Lady: An underground tunnel.
T-Bag: Exactly, right. Under the temple Iíll be bound.
High-T Lady: Yes but how did they get there?
T-Bag: I know (T-Bag walks over and turns the switch to the secret chamber) this must lead to the Stone Circle.
High-T Lady: Yes.
T-Bag: Good.
High-T Lady: What?
T-Bag: Now we have them!
High-T Lady: I donít understand.
T-Bag: You will. You wait here; Iíll wait at the Stone Circle by the time Iíve found the little brats theyíll be begging me to take the spoons back. Ha, ha, ha. Right you pair of little horrors hereís some more little horrors to keep you company.
(In the passage way we suddenly hear a loud hissing sound. Itís a snake!)
T-Shirt & Sally: Arrrgghh!
T-Shirt: We better go back.
Sally: We canít, weíve got to go on.
T-Shirt: Weíll never get past that thing.
(Sally slowly bends down and picks up a skull and she throws it at the snake. It disappears!)
T-Shirt & Sally: T-BAG!
T-Shirt: Oh no sheís found out weíve got the spoons. Weíre in for it now.
Sally: Donít worry she canít harm us so long as Iím wearing this (holds her silver pendant). Come on Iíll lead the way.
T-Shirt: Iím not a baby, Iíll go first.
Sally: I donít care, letís hurry.
T-Shirt: Right.
(A large spider appears where the snake was).
Sally: Warrghh! Itís not real (Sally bravely walks towards the spider).
T-Shirt: Sally!
Sally: Itís not real, itís not real, itís not real. (The spider vanishes) See, now shall we go?
(They leave and we see Sally has dropped her pendant on the ground)
(Back at The Stone Circle)
T-Bag: Come on Kiddywinkles. Iím waiting. Timeís running out!
In The T-Room
High-T Lady: Timeís running out. Time's running out. If only I could find those little brats, how pleased Her Majesty would be with me, Oh yes, it would please Her Majesty.
(The High-T Lady picks up the burning torch and goes into the passageway to find Sally and T-Shirt).
Sally: Look.
T-Shirt: What?
Sally: Up there, light I think itís very faint but it might be a way out.
T-Shirt: Yes steps leading up. This is it what are we waiting for?
Sally: After you.
(A wall of flames appear, blocking their path).
T-Shirt: T-Bag! OK.
Sally: OK.
T-Shirt: Wow itís hot.
Sally: Oh yes.
(T-Shirt and Sally start walking through the flames).
T-Shirt: Itís not really.
Sally: Itís not really.
(T-Shirt and Sally pass by the flames).

Let the ceremony commence

T-Bag: There, done it. Just in the nick of time too. So what do you think of that? All that running and chasing and hiding here, there and everywhere, where has it got you? Nowhere.
Sally: Where's the High-T lady? What have you done to her?
T-Bag: Happily, I've no further need of that old bat. I know everything that I need to know. Nobody but nobody can stop me now.
(T-Bag strikes the ceremonial gong).
T-Bag: Let the ceremony commence.
(T-Bag strikes the ceremonial gong again).

The Final destruction of Tallulah Bag

(T-Bag has got her powers from heavens and the High-T rushes to the stone circle to help the children. She arrives at the Stone Circle and starts untying the children from the post).
High-T Lady: Come on, weíve got to get out of here!
Sally: But T-Bag!
High-T Lady: Thereís nothing we can do. Itís too late!
T-Shirt: There must be something.
High-T Lady: The only thing to do is flee, save yourselves, RUN!
T-Bag: You! Stay where you are! You pathetic mortals, see the power that I have!
(T-Bag zaps the ground causing a menacing explosion and she stares at them with evil intent).
High-T Lady: (She holds up Sallyís pendant) You canít harm us you monster!
T-Bag: Oh canít I?
(T-Bag zaps the pendant and the High-T drops it. It explodes on impact of the ground. T-Bag turns around readying herself to blast The High-T, Sally and T-Shirt to smithereens. Sally quickly grabs the ceremonial gong and uses it as a shield to protect them).
T-Bag: And now itís your turn. This is for all the trouble you three have caused me. Goodbye Forever!
(T-Bag hurls a ray of evil energy which hits the gong, reflects off it to strike T-Bag with an explosive sound, the thunder rages and T-Bag disappears with a blood curdling scream).

That old teapot

Thomas: Tea's up.
Sally: Uh, oh, oh thank you.
Thomas: Unusual that old teapot.
Sally: Yes.
Thomas: Looks almost real.
Sally: Hmm, glad it isn't though.
Thomas: Cheers.
Sally: Yeah, cheers.
