[title Of Show] Is Even a Dumpy Title
Old obnoxious wife: Why is this set so dumpy? It’s not a real set.
Old obnoxious husband: I think it might be ironic… It says “Look! We’re on Broadway with a dumpy set!”
Young obnoxious girl in front of them (obviously a fan of the show): That’s kind of the point. It’s four chairs and a keyboard. And that’s all they need to be successful. If you pay attention to the show, you’ll find this out.
Old obnoxious husband: Oh, well… that’s… poetic.
Old obnoxious wife: It’s still dumpy!
