ALL
Tuesday.
JANICE
September 11th, 2001. Any available community
buildings will be converted into shelters.
With thousands of passengers arriving at any
minute, the town is asking for help with —
well, anything you can do?

BEULAH
CRYSTAL, I SAW ON THE NEWS
THAT THEY?RE LOOKING FOR
BLANKETS AND BEDDING
AND MAYBE SOME FOOD
CRYSTAL
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY NEED
AND HOW MUCH
MARTHA (ACTOR 5)
I NEED SOMETHING TO DO
MARTHA, CRYSTAL & BEULAH
?CAUSE I CAN?T WATCH THE NEWS
ANYMORE
ANNETTE
CAN I HELP?
IS THERE SOMETHING?
I NEED TO DO SOMETHING
TO KEEP ME FROM THINKING OF
ALL OF THOSE SCENES ON THE TUBE
CRYSTAL
I NEED SOMETHING TO DO
?CAUSE I CAN?T WATCH THE NEWS
WOMEN — GROUP 1
NO, I CAN?T WATCH THE NEWS ANYMORE
WOMEN — GROUP 2
IN THE WINTER, FROM THE WATER,
THROUGH THE WIND
ALL WOMEN
IF A STRANGER ENDS UP AT YOUR DOOR
BEULAH
YOU GET ON THE HORN
(on the phone)
Hello? This is Beulah Davis down at the
Academy. I heard we might be getting some
guests and I thought I?d see if I could help
whosever in charge of getting the school
organized— How many passengers can we take?
Uh — well, we fit about 400 students — yes,
we could probably do 600. Yeah, or sure, 700, if
we really pack them in. When are they coming?
Could be any time now? Well, I?m glad I phoned!
OZ
I get a call from Beulah looking for ?anything
700 people from around the world might
need.? So I go down to Shoppers and the
manager says to just take what I want off the
shelves - toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash,
deodorant. And I?m back at the school, when
Beulah says...
BEULAH
You know, those planes probably got some
babies on them?
A slight pause.
OZ
So I?m back to Shoppers for diapers. And we?re
unpacking them, when Annette says...
ANNETTE
You know, those babies are probably gonna be
hungry...
A slight pause.
OZ
So I?m back to Shoppers for formula and baby
food. And when I get back, Beulah says...
BEULAH
You know, those planes are probably filled with
women of child bearing age?
OZ
Soooo??
BEULAH
So I?M back to Shoppers to pick up as many
pads and tampons as they have.
JANICE
The Baptist Church needs a hand moving their
pews... Doctor O?Brien down at the pharmacy
is ready to fill any prescriptions. Oh, and the
Lion?s Club is looking for some toilet paper, if
you have any extra.

For the love of God, stop bringing toilet paper
to the Lion?s Club!

Well we have to be, don?t we?
