PINOCCHIO

Hi, Conscience! Where's Angelina? Hey! You shoulda told me she was a girl!

GIUSEPPE

It's my friend, Mr. Log!

PINOCCHIO

Nope. Not Mr. Log! My name is Pinocchio!

GIUSEPPE

Pinocchio!

PINOCCHIO

Yeah. My father gave me that name just this morning.

GIUSEPPE

And who might your father be?

PINOCCHIO

He might be Master Gepetto.

GIUSEPPE

And where is he now?

ALIDORO LISTENS TO THIS ENTIRE CONVERSATION, AND GENERALLY DISAGREES IN DOG MURMURS WITH EVERYTHING GIUSEPPE COMES UP WITH...ALSO, HIS VOICE OVER CONTINUES AS THE SCENE PROGRESSES...

ALIDORO'S VOICE

For some reason, I don't trust this guy...

PINOCCHIO

He went inside to get his winter's coat. He sold it to get me these five gold pieces to buy a spelling book so that I can go to school and work hard to learn the toy business.

GIUSEPPE

Work!

PINOCCHIO

Yeah, I said the same thing. Why is that? Is there something about work I wouldn't like?

GIUSEPPE

Why, there's nothing about work that you WOULD like! Work is painful and tiresome and boring...

ALIDORO'S VOICE

At least he got that right.

GIUSEPPE

Wouldn't you rather use your money to do something nice for your father?

PINOCCHIO

Something nice?

GIUSEPPE

Yes! Wouldn't you like to take your money and make it grow and grow so that you and your father can live in comfort for the rest of your lives?

PINOCCHIO

Oh, yes! How do I do that?

GIUSEPPE

Have you ever heard of the Field of Miracles?

PINOCCHIO

What?

GIUSEPPE

It's a wonderful, mysterious place not far from here. All you have to do is let me take your money to the Field of Miracles where I'll dig a little hole, drop your money in it, wait overnight, and then, when the sun comes up, your five gold pieces could be ten gold pieces!

ALIDORO'S VOICE

He must think you're a real dummy.

PINOCCHIO

Ten gold pieces!

GIUSEPPE

Or twenty! Or a hundred! Or a thousand! You never know how many times the Field of Miracles will multiply your riches!

ALIDORO'S VOICE

Oh, c'mon, Pinoke, don't listen to him!
