Transcript (Opening Countertop)
[Scene opens up with McGee wearing an elf hat and putting on decorations around a Christmas tree]
McGee: Hello boys and girls. We've got a very special show for you today! Im McGee... [Falls off ladder]
Kin: Wow. Did you did all this?
McGee: Yup. Elves are good at decorations.
Kin: You're the elf?
Kin: Well, I brought some lights for the tree. You always need more lights! [Looks at the camera] Uh McGee, the camera's on.
McGee: Yep! Say hello to the kids!
Kin: The kids? I didn't know we were doing a show today.
McGee: Well, we weren't. But then I thought, wouldn't it be great, as a Christmas present for the viewers, to tell them a Christmas story!
Kin: Wow! That's a great idea! Let's do "A Christmas Carol". I do a great Bob Cratchit.
McGee: Nope. Not that one. [Then Fanboy walked in]
Fanboy: Hey Kin! [McGee fell down again]
McGee: Again, ouch.
Fanboy: Have you found... the lights? Wow, who called in the elf brigade?
McGee: You're looking at him!
Fanboy: Why were you on the floor?
McGee: Elves are better at decorating than balancing. [Grabs the box of ornaments went back to decorating the tree then Fanboy walked toward the camera]
Fanboy: Were doing a show?
McGee: A Christmas show!
Fanboy: How about "The Nutcracker"? I can do battle with the mouse king!
McGee: Nope. Not the nutcracker.
Mike: Kin! Fanboy? [McGee fell out of the ladder and landed on Kin this time]
Mike: Oops sorry.
McGee: That's alright, I'm used to it.
Mike: Oh! I didn't know we were doing a show.
Kin: McGee says were doing a Christmas show.
Mike: (Gasps) Wonderful! I've always wanted to do The "Gift of the Magi"! [Mike hands the star to McGee and went back to the tree as he continued] It's a very inward piece. But I'm sure I'd be brilliant at it.
McGee: Nope not the "Gift of the Magi" either.
Kin: I don't get it McGee. If Its not A Christmas Carol or the Nutcracker or the Gift of the Magi. Then what story are we doing?
McGee: Glad you asked Kin. It's a holiday tale of my own creation. Where Ted Wiggins is an elf and Fanboy works for Kin who's the owner of a lighting buisness. Who are hired to decorate a mall owned by the king of the mall played by our good friend Mike here. [As McGee finally finished tree by putting the star he safely climbed down]
Fanboy: Wait, I work for him?
Mike: Wow, king of the mall. I do like the sound of that. Wheres my scepter?
Kin: Wow McGee! This sounds nice! And the tree looks even better. You really are a great Christmas decorator!
McGee: Thanks Kin! But... theres a lot more to Christmas than decorations. Like helping and giving!
Fanboy: That sounds like a segue.
McGee: I hope you like your present kids. Merry Christmas!
