INT. – BETSY’S BEDROOM – DAY
BETSY is sitting at her computer, OTTO is on the other side
of the room.
Oh man, Otto. You gotta come check
Otto begins walking toward her and stubs his toe on a rock
that goes flying.
Ow! My toe!
Oh no! What did you do? That was my
Your pet destroyed my toe.
Betsy picks up her rock and looks at it.
She holds it up to Otto’s face.
Tell Sadie you’re sorry.
No! Sadie should apologize for
hurting my toe.
That would be like punching
someone’s baby in the face and
asking the baby to apologize for
hurting your fist.
Whatever. I’m sorry, Sadie.
Oh look pizza poppers.
He grabs a pizza popper off the desk and eats it.
Careful. They’re really hot.
Otto spits it out and grabs a container of water off the desk
and drinks it.
Those were my sea monkeys!
What?! Why would ya let me drink

They’re in my stomach.
Get ’em out.

What are you doing?
I’m getting your sea monkeys.

Otto spits it out.

Yes! I got it from a shelter. It’s
I’m going to be sick.

OK. Close call.
It was just sitting on the bathroom
floor at the woman’s shelter.
Otto begins to run off.
Which is crazy ’cause they’re so
Sea monkeys will be in the toilet!
