Script Extract

TILLY Hello gang!

(Audience reaction.)

SIMON Remind me again why we have to try and milk Pat even more.

TILLY The giant wants milk for his cereal, pronto, or we’ll all be toast.

SIMON Why can’t he just milk one of the giant cows in the sky?

TILLY Don’t be so simple Simon. Cows don’t live in the sky.

(SIMON stares out of the window and spots TILLY’s herd. KING CRUMBLE enters.)

KING C. What a brilliant bunch of cows. I had no idea you had so many.

TILLY Not a bunch, a herd.

KING C. Heard of what?

TILLY Herd of cows.

KING C. Of course I’ve heard of cows.

TILLY I said a cow herd. Don’t you care about a cow heard?

KING C. What do I care what a cow heard? I have no secrets to keep from a cow!

SIMON You see that one there, she’s only got three legs.

KING C. What do you call her?

TILLY Lean beef.

KING C. What about that one there?

SIMON She’s exceptional.

KING C. How can you tell?

TILLY She’s outstanding in her field.

KING C. That one there’s got a problem.

TILLY Yes, she tried to jump over a barbed wire fence. It was an udder disaster.

KING C. That one doesn’t have any ears

TILLY I know, she’s moo-te

SIMON Sorry?

TILLY I said she’s moo-te.

SIMON Got-cha!

TILLY Come on now, enough fooling around. Time to get milking.
