Dr. Phil: How would you describe Count Olaf, Klaus?

 

Klaus: Well Iím glad you picked me to answer this question. Boy, can I tell you about the evil, disgusting, despicable Count Olaf! He is some mad man. I barely said two words to the man and the next thing I know, my face blew up like a balloon!

 

Violet: Now, now, Klaus! Heís exaggerating, Dr. Phil!

 

Sunny: Roga! Roga!

 

Dr. Phil: Now, now children. So please, Violet, tell me of your pain.

 

Violet: Well, Dr. Phil. It all started when we were on the beach and Mr. Po told us the bad news! He said our parents died in a house fire.

 

Klaus: What a bad beginning for us! And it keeps getting worse!

 

Sunny: Bubba! Hubba!

 

Dr. Phil: Okay children. I know this might bring back some bad memories, but letís watch a clip of the play, The Marvelous Marriage. Hit it Sam!
