Sally: But. Well I am a bit tired, I haven't slept for ages.
Hazel Knutt: There's a spare bed out the back, you can have that. Ah, your spoons.
Sally: I might get them stolen.
Hazel Knutt: Well if that's all that's worrying you, why don't you let me lock up your bag in my safe?
Sally: But.

I don't remember

T-Bag: Think boy, think. Where did you leave the bag?
T-Shirt: I don't remember.
T-Bag: Where did you find the bag?
T-Shirt: I don't remember.
T-Bag: When you left here you had the bag over your shoulder. Think carefully, what happened to it after that?
T-Shirt: Oh, I don't remember.
T-Bag: Oh this is hopeless and what about that (holds up bandaged finger)?
T-Shirt: I don't remember.
T-Bag: Don't remember. And I don't suppose you remember coming back here like some kind of demented toddler.
T-Shirt: No.
T-Bag: Can't you even offer me a crumb of information? I mean surely to goodness.
T-Shirt: Crumb, crumb, a crumb.
T-Bag: Oh hello, something's coming through.
T-Shirt: Crumb...
T-Bag: That's my boy...

A much better game

T-Bag: Oh what a farce. Can't you remember anything yet? You've had about four hundred of those things.
T-Shirt: Four hundred and one.
T-Bag: Oh for crying out loud, what a waste of time. Come on, let's get back.
Hazel Knutt: Here we are.
T-Bag: What's that?
Hazel Knutt: I thought you might like something to wash down those biscuits with, so I've brought you some of my lovely nut tea.
T-Bag: Tea eh. Mmm, wouldn't say no, thank you. Mmmm, most palatable. Not like the real thing, of course, but a cuppa's a cuppa!
(Sally walks in with Herr Krimper).
Sally: Hazel, Hazel, it's me.
Herr Krimper: Huh, huh, huh.
T-Shirt: Sally!
Sally: T-Bag!
T-Bag: Simpkins!
Hazel Knutt: Oh Sally, have I got a surprise for you, wait there.
Sally: What are you doing here? As if I didn't know.
T-Bag: Oh lost your bag again have you, what a shame.
Sally: Well you haven't got it either have you, so tough.
Hazel Knutt: Surprise, surprise. Look what I got.
T-Bag, T-Shirt & Sally: The bag!
(T-Bag snatches the bag from Hazel).
Sally: No.
T-Bag: Too late again Sally Slowcoach Simpkins, four silver spoons and they're all mine. Ha, ha, ha, ha, cheers!
Hazel Knutt: Oh, what have I done? You give that girl her bag back this minute.
T-Bag: Oh put a sock in it. You know, it's really is rather good T-Shirt, make a note, we must get some of this nut tea stuff.
(Sally whispers in Herr Krimper's ear).
Hazel Knutt: But this is outrageous, you can't just go stealing things you know. That bag belongs to the girl, give it back to her.
T-Bag: How dare you speak to me like that, one more word from you and you'll get what's coming to you, do you hear? Alright T-Shirt, let's go. Goodbye, here's mud in your eye. (T-Bag sips the nut tea), Ahhhh. (T-Bag hiccups and Herr Krimper laughs). What's happening? (T-Bag hiccups again).
T-Shirt: Your Majesty what's up?
Sally: This is what's up (Sally holds up the tonic bottle).
T-Shirt: That's the stuff I drank.
Herr Krimper: Exactly, ha, ha, ha, ha.
(T-Bag hiccups, falls to the floor and jumps back up dressed as a little girl).
T-Bag: Hello everybody, my name's Tallulah, you can call me Tally. What's your name?
Sally: Er, Sally.
T-Bag: (laughs) Sally and Tally, (laughs) we could be chums you and me.
T-Shirt: Your Majesty.
T-Bag: Oh go away, we don't like boys do we, Sally my best pally (laughs).
Sally: Er no.
T-Bag: Go on, hop it.
T-Shirt: But your Majesty.
T-Bag: I said hop it (T-Bag uses her magic and T-Shirt disappears). Did I do that (laughs), what a laugh, anybody else want to vanish?
Hazel Knutt & Herr Krimper: No.
T-Bag: Oh go on you rotten old lot of spoiled sports, let's have some fun.
Sally: Er Tally.
T-Bag: What?
Sally: Do you think I could have my bag back please?
T-Bag: Who says it's your bag, might be my bag.
Herr Krimper: It's her bag alright.
T-Bag: Do you want to vanish?
Herr Krimper: Er no.
T-Bag: Well keep your big nose out of it.
Herr Krimper: Alright.
T-Bag: Hate grown ups, don't you.
Sally: Oh yes.
T-Bag: I know, let’s play a game, let’s play smash the plates!
Hazel Knutt: No, no, no, no... ah, I've got a much better game.
T-Bag: What is it?

Herr Krimper: A what?
Hazel Knutt: Isn't it?
Sally: Oh yes, yes, yes.
Herr Krimper: Arh, it's a great game.
Hazel Knutt: You give me the bag, then everybody close their eyes, then I hide the bag and the first one to find it is the winner.
T-Bag: Oh easy peasy, bet I could find it just like that.
(T-Bag clicks her fingers and T-Shirt reappears).
T-Shirt: Don't do it your Majesty.
T-Bag: Oh not you again. (T-Bag uses her magic and T-Shirt disappears). Here you are then, here's the bag and I bet I find it first.
Hazel Knutt: Everybody close your eyes, (Herr Krimper mumbles) no peeking. (Hazel hands the bag to Sally). Right, I have hidden the bag, everybody open your eyes.
T-Bag: Ah, am I hot, am I cold, am I freezing. What am I?
Sally: Look I found it!
T-Bag: Oh nuts, what a swizz, hunt the boring old bag, what a rotten game. You lot are no fun, I'm off to find someone else to play with. Goodbye (T-Bag disappears).
Sally: Well done Hazel, that was clever.
Hazel Knutt: I've never seen anything like it. Oh what a day.
Herr Krimper: Amazing and all because I wanted to look young again, ah, doomkopf.
Hazel Knutt: So all the fun and games are over and Sally has her bag back. Why don't we all sit down and have a proper healthy breakfast.
Herr Krimper: Ah, wunderbar.

"A moment's pause for Simpkins"
During the last scene in the Muesli Bar, before T-Bag turns into a young girl, Sally and Herr Krimper walk back into the muesli bar. A short exchange of names, between T-Shirt, Sally and T-Bag, takes place but Sally's line of 'T-Bag' is partially said over T-Shirt's line of 'Sally', there is then a slight pause before Elizabeth Estensen continues the scene with her line of 'Simpkins'.
