[[[The day is rainy. Richard and Emmeline are inside. Richard is in the loft playing “Pop goes the weasel” on his flute. Emmeline is downstairs covering her ears.]]]
EMMELINE: Stop that! Please play something else! Why must you do that when you know it makes me angry?
[[[She goes under the loft, picks up a parasol, and pokes him in the butt with it, through the floor of the loft. He shouts, and then leans over to see her.]]]
RICHARD: Ow! Hey!
EMMELINE: [mocking] It doesn’t scare ‘em away, it brings ‘em to the top, where I can spear em!
[[[She tosses the parasol. He jumps down and begins to chase her. They laugh.]]]
RICHARD: Oh, I’ll spear you!
EMMELINE: Ha ha ha!
RICHARD: A ha!
[[[They go up to the top of the hut, he still chasing her. She slides down to the porch.]]]
EMMELINE: Here I am!
[[[He chases her over the boat and out on to the miraculously dry beach.]]]
RICHARD: Come back here or I’ll pull your britches down and take a switch to you!
