“Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” – Episode 79
It all even gets to rogue Nurse Maudlyn—ducks flying upside-down and blue donkeys riding red tricycles inside Gneeecey’s living room, and nine-foot-tall, three-armed, three-legged clowns riding in circles outside. Not to mention the combination horse/submarine on wheels that shows up on the driveway. She feels like she’s trapped inside a Fellini film.

Music/Intro: Hi there, I’m author and radio host Vicki Solá, welcoming you to Perswayssick Radio: Unearthly Comedy. I invite you to escape with me into the bizarre dimension of Perswayssick County, where wackiness rules! The laughs begin when I morph into my alter ego, radio DJ Nicki Rodriguez and clash with the zany, alien canine-humanoid Gneeecey! And now, I turn it over to my other self, Nicki, and the gang….
SFX: [Magic Spell] [Fast Circus Loop]
DIROCTOR BIZZIG “ZIG” GNEEECEY: Help! Fleaglossitty! Help!
SFX: [Donkey] [Duck]
G: Lemme shut the stinkin’ door before that dopey blue donkey ridin’ that stooopid red tricycle an’ that upside-down-flyin’ duck come in the house here!
SFX: [Door Slam]
SOOPERFLEA, AKA FLEA, AKA FLEAGLOSSITTY FLOPPINSPLODGE: Too late, Zig, too late. They’re in.
SFX: [Fast Circus Loop] [Donkey] [Duck]
G: Yeah, Fleaglossitty. You were too slow. Guess it was kinda like lockin’ the horse’s mouth after the barn door escaped. But at least, thank Bogelthorpe, that lousy nine-foot-tall three-armed, three-legged clown Three is too big to come in here.
SFX: [Comical Scary Clown Laughter]
NICKI RODRIGUEZ: Yeah, look out the window there. Three’s riding his unicycle in circles on the front lawn, laughing.
NURSE MAUDLYN: Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
F: And you, Nurse Maudlyn, there ain’t nuthin’ to laugh about! I, Sooperflea, local superhero of Perswayssick County, am orderin’ ya to leave this house—
G: Ya mean mansion, Fleaglossitty!
F: I order ya to leave this mansion! Right now! Immediately!
NM: Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha! I’ll do nothing of the sort. As I said, Doctor Gneeecey—
G: Like I stinkin’ told ya before ya fell on your lopsided bimbus, that’s Diroctor Gneeecey! Do I gotta remindicate ya again, I am the director, y’know, big boss, of this here lousy county in addition to bein’ a dopey doctor! I have authority over yooou an’ that Doctor Frombilagonga!
NM: You do not! And I was not amused when you all laughed after I fell on my bimbus!
F: At least ya didn’t spill your beer when ya fell! Hah, hah, hah!
N: Ha, ha, ha.
NM: Put a sock in it, you three! Like I said before—
F: —before ya fell on your big bimbus—hah, hah, hah—
NM: Shut up, or I’ll shut you up! All three of you! Like I said, I’ll have all three of you readmitted to Florence Ferguson Memorial! Now, Doctor Frombilagonga has written an order prescribing home care for Diroctor Gneeecey here. And like I said before—
F: Before ya fell on your bimbus—hah, hah, hah! Lucky ya didn’t spill your brewsky!
NM: I’m not warning you again! Now, as I report to Doctor Frombilagonga, I am going to give Diroctor Gneeecey home care here in his home whether he wants it or not! And his Purple Pelican insurance has pre-authorized my services.
G: An’ I stinkin’ told ya, that dopey Doctor Frombilagonga’s orders ain’t aplooplicable to meee, the Grate One!
NM: Yes, they are! And I must say, you, who claim to be so important, look so very silly clutching that stuffed teddy bear! Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha!
G: Don’choo dare say nuthin’ ’bout my teddy bear Yammicles! He’s real—he’s faaamily to me!
SFX: [Cell Phone Ring]
G: Igscuzipate me. I taste my smellphone ringin’. Smello?
CALLER: Do you vant to buy some cryptocurrency?
G: Shaaadup! Awready told ya a zillion times, stinkin’ noooo! Don’t stinkin’ call me never again!
NM: My, rude, aren’t we?
G: Y’know, that guy who keeps callin’ me smells a whole lot like Doctor Frombilagonga! Same voice!
NM: Uh, let’s get back to the home care I’m here to administer. Hmmm…. My beer seems to have gone a bit flat…but I guess it will do.
SFX: [Glass Shatter] [Dish Ceramic] [Metal Crash] [Donkey] [Duck] [Bang]
NM: Look at that blue donkey on the red tricycle riding around this living room here knocking expensive things over, and that upside-down-flying duck flying in circles around the ceiling up there—what’s this, a Marx Brothers movie?
F: Maybe he’ll poop in your flat beer! The duck, not one of the Marx Brothers! Hah, hah, hah!
G: Heh hah, heh haah, heh haaah!
F: Ooooh—that look in Nurse Maudlyn’s piercing, narrowed orange eyes is scarin’ me!
NM: As it well should!
F: What’s she takin’ outta her bag there?
NM: I warned you before, I’ve got ways to calm you down if you refuse to cooperate. And that goes for all three of you!
SFX: [Car Engine]
N: What’s that out there?
G: Out where, Ig?
N: Uh, that would be Nicki.
G: Okay, Ig. What’s goin’ on out there? I don’t smell or taste nuthin’.
N: There’s—there’s this—this—thing—
G: Spit it out, Ig, spit it out!
N: This thing just pulled up on our driveway! It—it’s orange and purple, and looks half like a horse and half like a submarine—on wheels! With a periscope up on top!
G: Oh, forgot to tell ya, that periscope’s up there so ya can see out when ya drive! Or, if you’re like me, hear when ya drive.
G: I felt kinda bad that it was my fault that your ugliful ’75 Splodge got wrecked when that evil nine-foot-tall clown Three fell on his bimbus, right on top of my garage roof. So, I made a deal wit’ Zeke’s Pizza an’ Transmissions to lend ya this here vehickookle while they either fix yours or, y’know, traaaash it if they can’t fix it.
N: I’m—I’m—I’m supposed to drive that thing? SFX: [Donkey]
G: Now, Ig, don’t brush a gift horse’s teeth! It’ll actually be cheaper to drive than your ol’ Splodge. Runs on alkookohol. Rindom-based alkookohol. Plentiful in these parts since we got so many rindom fields here in Perswayssick County. Ya jus’ go to a local distillery an’ fill up every coupla days.
N: Oh, geez—
SFX: [Door Bell Ring] [Door Pound]
F: I’ll get it, guys. I’ll get it.
SFX: [Door Open]
F: Why, hello, Doctor Idnas and Grandma. It’s real good to see youse both. We got lotsa trouble around here right now!

N: Hi, Doctor Idnas. Hi, Grandma. Thank goodness you’re both here. Some really terribooble things are hapoopening here—proboobably because—oh…my…god….
F: Oh, Nicki! Oh no!
G: The Ig, she’s talkin’ all funny, like meeeee! She proboobably got oooglitis—y’know, along wit’ that neurological disorder I got. Redecoritis gives ya that Redecoritis-infected speech!

IS: Yah, Nicki, you are a poster child for stress!
G: Whaddabout meee? Whaddabout meee? Ain’t I a poster child for stress? That’s not fair! I wanna be one, too!
F: Oh, you are, Zig, you are! For bein’ stressed an’ stressin’ others!

NM: I’m a professional. I’ll give you an opinion.
DI: And who are you?

F: Talk about bein’ trapped—we were trapped in a nightmare!
N: Yeah…and we still are….
SFX: [Cuckoo Clock] [Glass Shatter] [Dish Ceramic] [Metal Crash] [Donkey] [Duck]
G: If that Nurse Maudlyn shows up again, I won’t know if I’m havin’ a nightmare or if it’s really her!
F: Well, this sure wasn’t a dream—it was an actual livin’ nightmare! It was really her! See? Here’s her beer mug!
