Three of Seven Ancient Wonders


                                                                                           Act I

INT. Toolbelt Timmy‟s garage – morning

Timmy is kneeling by his trike, adjusting a strange contraption with a wrench. He puts down the wrench,
and picks up another tool to make some more minor adjustments. (Production note: we hear “wrench”
sounds and “drilling” to give the impression of construction).

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           I hope this works. I spent all night putting it together.

INT. Lolly Molly‟s kitchen – morning

Aunt Velma places a plate of eggs, bacon, and toast in front of Molly. She is wearing a pair of glasses that
resemble clocks. Aunt Velma sits down besides Molly and begins her own breakfast plate.

                                            AUNT VELMA
                           Did you sleep well last night, sweetie.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           Yes I did Aunt Velma. Thank you again for letting me
                           sleep over.

                                           AUNT VELMA
                           You‟re welcome honey. You know I love your company.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           And I love you. Plus you make the best breakfast in the
                           world.

EXT. Timmy on his Trike – MORNING

Toolbelt Timmy pulls the trike up front of Aunt Velma‟s house and honks the horn twice.

INT. kitchen – MORNING

Upon hearing the horn, Lolly Molly jumps up from her seat, wipes her mouth with the napkin and
straightens out her clothes.

                                              AUNT VELMA
                           That must be Timmy. Tell him I said hello. He‟s such a
                           nice boy. A little gentleman for my princess.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                                               (blushing)
                           Aunt Velma!

                                             AUNT VELMA
                           I‟m sorry dear. Didn‟t mean to make you blush. Be careful
                           Sweetie, and remember . . .

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           I can do any thing!
                                                                                                               2



HALLWAY CONTINUOS

Lolly Molly reaches down to pick up her heavy book bag. As she approaches the front door, she sees a
book on the parlor table entitled “Ancient History”. She picks up it up and begins to put it in her bag. She
realizes the bag is stuffed to the brim with books. She lets out a heavy sigh to suggest disappointment.

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                            I need to get a bigger bag. (pause, the horn beeps two more
                            times) Of Course!

EXT. AUNT VELMA‟S HOUSE – MORNING

Lolly Molly runs up to Timmy‟s Trike holding the “Ancient History” book in one hand, while her bulging
book bag is on her other arm.

                                                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            It‟s not like you to be running late Molly

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                            I‟m sorry Timmy. Can you do me a big favor please!
                            (she bats her eyes)

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                              (embarrassed)
                            Ok?
                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                            Can you hold this book for me? My book bag is full.

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            With more books no doubt! Sure, I can hold your book. What‟s
                            it about?

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                                               (excited)
                            It‟s my Aunt‟s! I found it on the hallway table. It‟s about
                            ancient history!

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                              (dry)
                            Fantastic. Hop in and tell me all about it on the way to Blurpies.
                            I have a feeling what I built last night might come in handy.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                            What did you build?

                                               TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            You‟ll see. Let‟s ride!

The trike takes off to Blurpies.

EXT. BLURPIES – MORNING

They pull up to the front of Blurpies. There is a loud commotion coming from inside the house. (production
note: we hear pots clanging, dogs barking, glass breaking, water spilling)
                                                                                                      3


                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                          What on earth is going on in there?

                                           LOLLY MOLLY
                          I don‟t wanna know.

Toolbelt Timmy honks the horn and the loud commotion stops. Blurpie comes out of the house with his
lunch box and ukulele and makes his way towards the trike.

                                         BLURPIE
                                         (let‟s out a huge burp)
                          Good morning my friends!

                                           LOLLY MOLLY
                                           (annoyed)
                          Really Blurpie! Do you have to do that first thing in the
                          morning.

                                            BLURPIE
                                            (confused)
                          Do what?

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                          Never mind. What was going on in the house? It sounded like
                          a tornado touched down in your kitchen.

                                           BLURPIE
                                           (getting in trike)
                          I was making lunch! (holds up his lunch box). And snacks!

                                          LOLLY MOLLY
                          We should be headed to Madame de la Trois‟s.

Blurpie sits down and yells loudly

                                            BLURPIE
                          I sat on something!

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                             (laughing)
                          Oh sorry Blurp. I forgot I put Molly‟s gigantic history book
                          back there. Just slide it over. There should be space for the
                          two of you. (pause) I think.

                                            BLURPIE
                          It hurt my bum.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                                             (holding back laughter)
                          I didn‟t think the book was THAT big!

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                          Hold on, here we go!

The trike takes off to Madame de la Trois mansion.
                                                                                                             4


EXT. MADAME DE LA TROIS‟S FRONT DOOR- MORNING
The three pals slowly walk up towards to the front door. Timmy pulls on the iron knocker in the shape of a
Three. Blurpie, now eating a pastry, stands behind Timmy, while Molly hides behind Blurpie. Madame de
la Trois, cast in shadow, opens the door and hands Timmy a piece of paper. She shuts the door.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                           (whispering)
                           She always makes me a little nervous.

                                               BLURPIE
                                               (stuffing his face)
                           That‟s why I eat!

                                           LOLLY MOLLY
                           You always eat! What does the paper say Timmy?

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Three of seven ancient wonders.

                                            BLURPIE
                           I wonder what that means?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           I know what it means! Timmy, the book in the trike can tell
                           us about the seven ancient wonders of the world.

As Timmy heads to the trike to retrieve the book, Lolly Molly‟s clock glasses begins to spin wildly as she
computes the data.

                                           BLURPIE
                                           (now standing by the trike)
                           What does ancient mean?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           It means a very, very, very, very, (she continues to repeat
                           “very” numerous times, each time a bit faster)

                                             BLURPIE
                                   (taking out a bag of popcorn from a bag)
                           Ah, Lolly. (pause). Maybe you should take off the glasses.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                                            (clears her throat)
                           Ancient means, a very long time ago.

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                            (holding the book)
                           I‟ve been working on something fellas.

                                            BLURPIE
                  (now putting the bag of popcorn in a microwave which is part of the trike)
                          Oh yeah, what!

                                                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           All right I‟ll tell you. (crouches down and begins to whispers.)
                           I call it a “time machine”.
                                                                                                    5



                                             BLURPIE
                           Can it tell me what time my popcorn will get done!

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Not that kind of time machine Blurpie! It means we can go
                           back in time. Back to places that aren‟t here anymore.

                                        BLURPIE
                                        (now eating the popcorn)
                           Wow Timmy. You made that!

                                                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                     (singing and swinging his hips showing off his belt)
                           I got a tool belt, I got a tool belt, I got a tool belt, and you
                           don‟t have one, cause I got a tool belt.

                                          LOLLY MOLLY
                           Excuse me Tango Timmy. Does your time machine work?

                                                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Well? (pause) I don‟t know yet Molly. We‟re going to be the
                           first ones to test it. I just installed it this morning.

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                           I have a plan. We can use the book as a visual guide. According
                           to my calculations we have time to visit three ancient wonders.
                           first, the gardens of Babylon. Second, the statue of Zeus. And
                           third, the pyramids of Egypt.

                                            BLURPIE
                           I have so many questions.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           Hold on to them Blurpie. Timmy, the first two wonders existed
                           in the past. The pyramids are still around today!

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           So we use the time machine for the gardens and the statue. And then we
                           come back to this time to see the pyramids.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           Exactly! You‟re so smart.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           I believe you‟re time machine works.

The three pals stare at the trike and the time machine contraption. They all get in.

                                              BLURPIE
                           Do you think I‟ll like ancient cheeseburgers?
                                                                                                              6


                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           Blurpie, you like all cheeseburgers!

                                             BLURPIE
                           You‟re right, I do! (strums his ukulele twice)

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Hang on, here . . . we . . . go!!!!!!!

The trike takes off at an incredible speed passing the statue of liberty, mount Rushmore, the Eiffel tower,
then historical people like, Lincoln, George Washington, Native Americans, stars, lines, geometric figures,
then a map of Europe as the trike speeds towards Greece. There‟s a bright flash and white light and then
darkness.

                                                                                                   Act ii

EXT. GARDENS OF BABYLON – DAY

The three pals at the base of a green mountain. The gardens are above them. They are all very excited.

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           It worked! It really worked!

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           I knew it would! Look up there! It‟s the ancient gardens of
                           Babylon.

                                              BLURPIE
                           All of that time travel sure made me hungry. Do you think
                           we could stop somewhere and grab a quick bite?

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           What about you‟re lunch box?

                                              BLURPIE
                           I forgot, thanks Timmy.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           No problem.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                                              (getting out of the trike)
                           Right above us is the ancient gardens of Babylon. They were built
                           on the side of this mountain to hang over the city.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           A hanging garden? That must have required a lot of work.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                                              (rifling through the history book)
                           You‟re right. Look at this picture. There must have been thousands of
                           people building it.

                                          BLURPIE
                                          (now out of the trike, looking up)
                           You know guys. We don‟t have too look at the book now. We are
                                                                                                  7


                           here. Why don‟t we go up and check it out in person.
                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                             (looking at Molly)
                           You know he‟s right. Look over there. We can take that path up
                           to the gardens and take our own picture.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           We‟re going to have to walk. That path looks too small for the
                           trike to drive up.

                                               TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           It‟s a nice day. I can go for a walk.

                                             BLURPIE
                           Walk?!

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           It‟ll be good for you Blurpie. Let‟s go.

                                            BLURPIE
                                            (burps loudly)
                           Let me get my lunch box.

Blurpie goes to the trike and takes his lunch box. The three of them begin to walk up the path.

EXT. PATH – DAY

                                             (her glasses begin to spin around wildly)
                           The gardens are 400 square feet long and 75 feet above the
                           ground. It was constructed by King Nebuchadnezzar as a present
                           to his wife.

        BLURPIE & TOOLBELT TIMMY
Nebercanezzer!

                 LOLLY MOLLY
Correct! He was the king who built this garden for his wife.

                  BLURPIE
I built a doghouse for my dog Spaghetti.

                     KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                     (standing at the opening of the garden)
I built this to stay out of the doghouse.

                   TOOLBELT TIMMY
Who are you?
                 KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
I‟m the King. This is my garden that I built for my lovely wife. The
more important question is, who are you?

                 LOLLY MOLLY
Your majesty. My name is Lolly Molly. This is Toolbelt Timmy, and
he‟s Blurpie. We‟re from the future. We came back to your time to see
the gardens of Babylon. We were sent on a mission.

                BLURPIE
Do you have cheeseburgers?

                   KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
Cheese what?

                    BLURPIE
Cheeseburgers. You know, meat, cheese, a bun, maybe some mayo,
definitely ketchup, some mustard, a little lettuce, a lot of onions, oh
and bacon, mounds of bacon, with a thin slice of tomato and french
fries, no curly fries, with more ketchup, and soda!

                   KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
Soda?

                   BLURPIE
No soda?

                   TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                                                                                             9


                           Blurpie, I don‟t think he knows that type of food.
                                              KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                           Food? Yes food. My gardens have many fruits and vegetables.
                           I have also planted the world‟s most exotic trees and flowers.
                           No garden in the world is like mine.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           I think that‟s why historians called it one of the ancient wonders.

                                              KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                           I don‟t know these historians. I know of known in the city of
                           Babylon. I will tell you this, I constructed this garden to remind
                           my wife of her homeland. She was from a green and fertile land,
                           not like Babylon, which is desert like.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           So you constructed this garden on the side of the mountain so it
                           looks over the city.

                                             KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                           That is correct young girl. My wife Amytis loves it. I love it.

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           And the world loves it too. Would you mind if we took your picture
                           with our camera?

                                           KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                           Your what?! Are you here to harm to me!

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           No sir. Our camera, it takes pictures, photographs sir.

                                              KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR
                                              (yelling out loud)
                           Guards! Guards!

                                           BLURPIE
                           Timmy. (pause) Let‟s take the picture and run.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           For once I agree with Blurpie. Hurry up and take the photo
                           Timmy. We have to get back to the Trike.

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Right. (he takes the picture of the King yelling in front of his
                           gardens and begins to follow Lolly Molly and Blurpie back down
                           the path.)

CONTINUOS

EXT. PATH – DAY

All three of them are running back down path. Behind them are the King‟s guard. Blurpie is yelling, Lolly
Molly‟s clock glasses are spinning wildly once again, and Timmy is putting the camera away in his
toolbelt. The guards are dressed in colorful uniforms, the styles reflecting the times. As the chase continues,
the 3 pals see the trike.
                                                                                                                 10



                                                BLURPIE
                            I can see the trike guys! We‟re almost there.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                            Timmy, can you start up the trike from your toolbelt

                                             TOOLEBELT TIMMY
                            I‟m working on that now. Give me a few more seconds!

Timmy fumbles around his belt and begins to push a button. The trike does not make a sound. He continues
to push the button frantically. The Guards are closing in.

CONTINUOS

EXT. BELOW THE GARDENS – DAY

Blurpie jumps into the back of the trike and yells “OUCH!” He jumped on top of his ukulele. Lolly Molly
scoots into the front seat and waits for Timmy who is right behind her. He continues to push the button on
his belt, but the trike has not started.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            Looks like we‟re going to have to start it the old fashioned
                            way fellas.

He leaps into the driver‟s side, plunges the key into the ignition, the trike roars to life. The King‟s guards
hear the sound, and slow their pursuit.

                                               TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            It looks like the King and his men are afraid us.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                            Can you really blame them. We have technology they‟d never
                            thought of. Imagine if people from the future cam to visit us!
                            I‟d be scared as well.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            You‟re right. Where to next?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                            The statue of Zeus, the year 450 BC

                                               TIMMY & MOLLY
                            NO!

The trike takes off, just as the King‟s guard reach it. (Production note: once again we see the trike travelling
through time. Lights, geometric figures, brilliant colors, and map, indicating the trike travelling towards
Greece and the city of Olympia. There is a flash of white!)

EXT. STATUE OF ZEUS – AFTERNOON

The trike comes to a stop in front of the magnificent statue. The three pals exhale an audible “gasp” for
their close escape and for the gigantic monument before them. Blurpie picks up his ukulele and begins to
sing and play. (Production note: need to create music for lyrics)
                                                                   11



                   BLURPIE
                   (singing)
“It was a close call. They almost nabbed us.
 But now it‟s lunch time, I need a sandwich.”

                   LOLLY MOLLY
                   (annoyed)
I can‟t believe that‟s all you think about Blurpie.

                 BLURPIE
                 (continues singing with ukulele)
“Oh Lolly Molly, just please be fair
 How „bout some roast beef, I like it rare.”

                 TOOLBELT TIMMY
Enough with the singing Blurpie. You still have your lunch
box, right?

                     BLURPIE
I still have it but “we‟re running on empty, ohh, ohh , running
down.” ( production note: sounds like Jackson Browne)

           TIMMY AND MOLLY
ENOUGH BLURPIE!

                  BLURPIE
I‟m sorry. I‟m just a little excited and hungry, so I like to
express myself in song sometimes. But at least we‟re here!

                  LOLLY MOLLY
We are in the ancient Greek City of Olympia. The very first
Olympics were held here over two hundreds years ago.

                 TOOLBELT TIMMY
That‟s over 2,700 years ago if we were back in the present time.

                LOLLY MOLLY
                (impressed)
You‟re right Timmy. Wow you‟re really good at math.

                  TOOLBELT TIMMY
                  (blushing)
Thanks Molly.

                  LOLLY MOLLY
                  (getting out of the trike)
This statue was built to honor both the god Zeus and the Olympic
athletes.

                 BLURPIE
       (eating a mouthful of a roast beef sandwich)
Who‟s Zeus?

                  LOLLY MOLLY
                  (glasses begin to spin again)
                                                                     12


Zeus was the greatest and most powerful god of all the Greek
Gods.

                  TOOLBELT TIMMY
So he was like the president of all the Gods.

                 LOLLY MOLLY
You could say that. They had different Gods for many things.
For example, Poseidon was the god of the seas.

                  TOOLBELT TIMMY
Cool.

                 LOLLY MOLLY
Athena, my favorite, was the goddess of wisdom.

                 TOOLBELT TIMMY
                 (looking at Lolly Molly)
That sounds about right.

                 BLURPIE
Was there a god for food and music?

                 LOLLY MOLLY
Yes there was. His name was Dionysus. He loved to eat and have a
good time.

                  BLURPIE
Where‟s his statue?

                   LOLLY MOLLY
I‟m sure there were some made in his honor, but none as grand, or
as large as this one for Zeus.

                 BLURPIE
                 (finishing his sandwich)
What a gyp. I would of loved to seen a statue of him.

                  LOLLY MOLLY
Why don‟t you look in the ancient history book to see if they have
a picture of Dionysus. Timmy and I will take a picture of this
statue.

                    BLURPIE
                    (leafing through the book)
I think I will. (opens up a soda and begins to chug it down)

                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                (leaving with Molly)
Hopefully we don‟t run into anymore ancient guards. That was
a close call.

                    LOLLY MOLLY
It looks like we‟re the only people around. May I take this
picture please. I think Madame de la Trios will be most impressed
with this one. She‟d never believe we traveled back in time to
                                                                                              13


                           see this and the ancient gardens of Babylon.
                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                              (handing the camera)
                           Here you go.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                           Thank you. (takes the camera, looks up at the statue, and begins
                           to take several shots, fashion magazine style) OK, now give
                           me a smile. No smile, that‟s fine. How about an all powerful
                           look. Great, hold that pose. Let me take another one. Show me
                           strong stone look.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Careful Molly. We still have one more wonder to go. I don‟t
                           want to run out of film.

Blurpie, still seated in the trike, lets out a monstrous BURP.

                                            BLURPIE
                                            (finishing the soda)
                           This cola always does it too me.

In the distance, a low rumbling sound begins, as the ground starts to shake a bit.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           What‟s that sound?

                                              BLURPIE
                           I burped.

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Not that sound. I feel the ground moving. Do you feel it
                           Molly?

                                           LOLLY MOLLY
                           Oh my goodness. Blurpie!

                                              BLURPIE
                           What?

                                          LOLLY MOLLY
                           Do you know what you‟ve done?

                                              BLURPIE
                           I burped.

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           I think you started an earthquake.

                                            BLURPIE
                           Come on. I‟ve released louder.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           He‟s not kidding. The ground is really starting to shake.
                                                                                                            14


The ground begins to move violently. The trike bounces up and down. Lolly Molly and Timmy fall down.
Blurpie looks worried. Bits of stone and pebbles begin to fall off of the statue.
                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                    (getting up and running towards Lolly Molly)
                           Come on Molly. Grab the camera. We have to scram.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                                            (being helped up)
                           Thank you. I can‟t believe you Blurpie!

                                             BLURPIE
                           I can‟t believe me either! Let‟s get out of here!

Lolly Molly and Timmy hop back into the trike. Larger parts of the statue and surrounding buildings begin
to fall to the ground. One piece almost hits the trike. Timmy starts the trike and turns to Molly.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                           (continuous)
                           Molly! Do we go back to our time now!

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           Yes. We need to go to Egypt. Hurry Timmy, the stones are falling
                           everywhere.

                                                 TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Here . . . . we . . . . go!

The trike takes off as they narrowly avoid being hit by falling rock. (Production Note: once again time
travel is simulated, however this time there is a calendar which counts the years upwards towards 2004.
There is also a map. A red line illustrates the 3 pals headed towards Giza, Egypt.)

                                                                                                  Act iii

EXT. PYRAMIDS GIZA – LATE AFTERNOON

The trike fishtails to a stop in front of the pyramid throwing up an immense amount of sand and dust. The
three pals all cough and wipe their faces of the sand and dirt.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           Blurpie, may I have your lunch box please?

                                            BLURPIE
                                   (rubbing his eyes and handing over his lunch box)
                           Here you go. You can have one of my peanut butter and jelly
                           sandwiches.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                                     (taking the lunch box and going through it)
                           Since you have three in here, I‟m going to take one for Timmy
                           as well. I‟m also taking all of these to avoid any more (pause)
                           accidents.
Lolly Molly takes out the sodas and stuffs them into her bag.

                                           BLURPIE
                                           (pleading)
                           Not my sodas! There my favorites.
                                                                                                       15



                                               TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                               (eating his pb&j)
                            I think it‟s a good idea Blurpie. I don‟t want to drive through
                            anymore earthquakes today or ever again.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                                              (eating her sandwich)
                            That‟s why I going to hold on to them until we finish our
                            mission Blurpie. Look there it is.

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            Wow! Look at that!

All three pals get out of the trike and stare in awe of the pyramid.

                                             BLURPIE
                            You can bake a pizza with pepperoni and onions in this heat.

                                              LOLLY MOLLY
                            We‟re in the desert Blurpie. It can get over 120 degrees in the sun.

                                              TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            That‟s hot.

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                            Of all of the seven ancient wonders, the pyramids are the only ones
                            which are around today. Fires, war, passing time, and EARTHQUAKES
                            have destroyed the other six. This pyramid is the largest of 10 that are
                            still standing. We are outside of the city of Giza.

                                              BLURPIE
                                              (pointing to large river)
                            What‟s that over there?

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                            That‟s the Nile river. We‟re on the west bank of the Nile. You know
                            that river has survived since the ancient times. It helped build this
                            pyramid. The water and sand were mixed to make cement.

                                               TOOLBELT TIMMY
                            So with the cement, they were able place the stones together and build
                            all the way up to the skies.

                                               LOLLY MOLLY
                                               (glasses begin to spin)
                            According to my calculations, the Egyptians used 2.3 billion rocks
                            to build this pyramid.

                                            BLURPIE
                            Why would they build this?

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                            This pyramid began construction under King Khufu.

                                              BLURPIE
                                                                                               16


                           I hate Tofu. It has no taste no matter what you cook it in.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Not tofu, Ku-u-fu.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           You‟re right Timmy. It began construction under King Khufu, but
                           it took hundreds of years and many more kings until the pyramid
                           was complete.

                                              BLURPIE
                           Can I have my lunch box back? I have some water in there. It‟s
                           really hot out here. I‟m sweating like a baboon.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           That‟s not a bad idea Blurpie. I think we can all use some water
                           before we dehydrate.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                                            (handing over the lunch box)
                           I can use some water.

All three pals take a drink of water and wipe the sweat of their brows.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           What purposes does this pyramid serve Molly?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           Well, according to my data, there were several reasons.

                                              BLURPIE
                           Was it a giant restaurant?

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           No. That‟s not one of the reasons.

                                             BLURPIE
                           Was it a giant concert hall?

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                           No. That‟s not one of the reasons either.

                                           BLURPIE
                                  (gasping because he thinks he has the right answer)
                           A doghouse!

                                            TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                            (looking at Molly)
                           Something tells me you‟re way off track, Blurpie.

Lolly Molly‟s face is red and there is smoke coming out of her ears. She is visibly annoyed.

                                                BLURPIE
                           I‟ll be quiet now.

                                                TOOLBELT TIMMY
                                                                                                             17


                           Good idea.

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                                             (slowly and regaining normal color)
                           One reason, was to slant the rays of the sun. Another and more
                           popular reason was that the pyramid served as a tomb. When a
                           king died, they were buried within the pyramid.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           That‟s kind of depressing. Were there any others buried in the
                           pyramid?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           Nope. Just kings and royalties.

                                           BLURPIE
                                           (carefully and with a big smile)
                           Any chance a king is in there now?

                                             LOLLY MOLLY
                           Maybe.

                                             BLURPIE
                           What do you say about taking a picture and then getting out here
                           before the sun goes down. I‟d really hate to be out here with a
                           giant pyramid that may or may not be a home to a deceased
                           Egpytian king. Plus, it‟s pushing dinner time.

                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                                            (takes out the camera)
                           Hey guys, go stand by the pyramid so I can take picture of you
                           in front of it.

                                             TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Wait, I have an idea.

Timmy runs back to the trike and takes out a tripod stand. He places the camera on top and sets the timer.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           Now we can all be in it.

The three pals stand in front of the camera and a “click” is heard. The photo is taken. Standing right behind
the 3 pals is a MUMMY waving “hello” to the camera. Before the pals turn around the MUMMY says . . .

                                             MUMMY
                           Boo.

The 3 pals turn around, look at the mummy and yell. They run back into trike wildly, arms flaying. As the
trike speeds off, the MUMMY is seen waving goodbye.

EXT. MADAME DE LA TROIS – DUSK

The three pals, exhausted and a little dirty, climb up the front steps of the mansion. Timmy pulls on the
giant iron knocker, and the shadow of Madame De la Trois comes to the door. Lolly Molly hands her the
pictures.
                                                                                                         18


                                            LOLLY MOLLY
                                            (sheepishly)
                           Here you go. Three of seven ancient wonders. I hope
                           you enjoy.

Lolly Molly retreats back behind Timmy and Blurpie. Madame de la Trois shuts the front door firmly. In a
moment the door is opened again and she hands Timmy a pair of running shoes, Lolly Molly a book
entitled “The Ancient Writings of Homer”, and a cheeseburger platter for Blurpie, fresh with curly fries and
ketchup. The front door shuts and three pals stare at each other incredulously.

                                           TOOLBELT TIMMY
                           How does she always know?

Blurpie begins devouring his meal, Lolly Molly begins to read her book, and Timmy starts to put on his
new running shoes.

Fade to black.
