FLYING SETTING: Two brothers enter. DUKE is older. They are carrying homemade "wings". (You may have it be an older sister, but it’s funnier if it’s a little boy.) DUKE I’m telling you, it’s going to work. JACKIE I don’t know. DUKE Wind’s pretty good up here. You’ll have it at your back. I like the angle. JACKIE Awfully far down. DUKE You need room to glide. JACKIE That’s true. DUKE Let’s get you rigged up. (Takes the wings from him.) JACKIE I don’t know about this. DUKE What’s to know? It’s going to work. Birds have wings, they fly. Planes use wings. (Showing him.) Wings! JACKIE They’re cardboard. DUKE They’re light, but tough. Corrugated. Good stuff. JACKIE You do it. DUKE Jackie, Jackie, Jackie. They’re designed for you. Your arms. Your body weight. Trust me. It’ll work. (Rigs him up.) All right. Contact. Ready to fly? Jump! (Jackie doesn’t move.) What are you waiting for?
JACKIE What if I fall? DUKE Jackie. You’re already starting to doubt. Don’t doubt. Do! Adventurers do. They fly. They don’t just sit around. What if? "What if a tree falls on me today?" What if. Be positive. Think "I will fly." and then do it. JACKIE I will fly. DUKE There you go. I’ll meet you over by that tree. That’s far enough today. (Starts to leave.) Remember to flap your arms. JACKIE (He starts with his arms out.) I will fly.
