ACT I – IN THE LIVING ROOM

 

(Mother is watching TV.  Father is reading the newspaper. Son is coloring a book.  He shows the page to his mother)

 

SON: Look, mom, do you like it?.

 

MOTHER:  Why did you color everything green?.

 

SON: Why not?.

 

MOTHER: Because not everything you see is green.  Just look at the rainbow.  All the different colors make it look so beautiful!.

 

 SON: Wow!.  You’re right.  Mom, why do dolphins make so many sounds?.

 

 MOTHER: Because that’s the way they communicate.

 

 SON: With whom?.

 

 MOTHER: With other sea animals.

 

 SON: Dad, why does rain fall from the sky?.
