The puppets leave. The original puppets reappear and Scene II is put back in place. Suddenly there is the sound of an alarm clock. As the fog clears, the large alarm clock is seen ringing vigorously and the sun is rising.

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “FIREBALL! You’re alive!”

FIREBALL: “Yes! It’s wonderful!”

GREEN MEANIE: “Snoz! You have both your eyes and ears and arms!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “Yes! It’s great!”

VACUUM: “GREEN MEANIE! You’re not ugly anymore!”

GREEN MEANIE: “Oh! Thank goodness! And look! It’s MOUSETRAP!”

MOUSETRAP: “It’s so good to be alive!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “VACUUM! You didn’t have a stroke after all! You’re OK!”

VACUUM: “Yes! I’m OK!”

GREEN MEANIE: “And, Snoz, you can talk-without that funny voice box!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “I think we had a dream!”

VACUUM: “No! It was a vision!”

ALL VOICES: “We’ve never seen a such a scene!”

ALL: “Not even on television!”

(One by one as the puppets look around, they realize that they are not alone. When they see the Decision Maker, they start to stutter and their mouths hang open.)

(Tap each other on shoulder)

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “This is WON DER F-F-F-F-FUL!”

VACUUM: “This is A-A-A-A STOUND-ING!”

GREEN MEANIE: “Look! The sun is rising and our school is just as nice as E-E- E-E-EVER!”

FIREBALL: “This is MAR-MAR-MAR-VE-LOUS!”

MOUSETRAP: “This is just too C-C-C-COOL!”

VACUUM: “Oh! I can’t believe it! This is just great! We’re all alive and well. …..”

GREEN MEANIE
& LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “Uh … VACUUM!”

VACUUM: “And we’re not old!”

GREEN MEANIE
& LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “VACUUM!”

VACUUM: “You know, Snoz, you and me looked like we were 100 years old!”

GREEN MEANIE
& LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “V A C U U U U U U U U M!”

VACUUM: “Yeh? What is it?!” (He turns around and sees the Decision Maker) “OoooooooH! UH … who … are … you …?!”

DECISION MAKER: “I am the Decision Maker and I’ve come with a message. First of all, I’ve come to tell you that you are greatly loved!”

ALL: “We know that!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “My mom loves me!”

VACUUM: “My little brother loves me!”

GREEN MEANIE: “My dog loves me!”

DECISION MAKER: “Yes! But there’s an even greater love than that! I’ve also come to tell you that you’re here for a purpose!”

GREEN MEANIE,
VACUUM
& LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “Poipus??!”

MOUSETRAP: “Poipus?! We got poipus??!!”

DECISION MAKER: “No, purpose!”

FIREBALL: “A poipus!”

PUPPETS: “Did you say poipus?!”

DECISION MAKER: “OK! Poipus!”

GREEN MEANIE: “Poipus! You mean we have a poipus for being here?!”

MOUSETRAP: “Poipus! I never knew we have poipus! Did you know we have poipus?!”

VACUUM: “Poipus! Poipus! If we have poipus, we must be important!”

DECISION MAKER: “Yes indeed! You are important! There’s not another one like you. Only you can do what you can do!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “And we can do a whole lot more if we don’t smoke cigarettes or take drugs!”

DECISION MAKER: “That is exactly right!”

VACUUM: “But what exactly is our poipus?”

DECISION MAKER: “Your poipus is to appreciate this great universe and everything in it; to do some good, and not to hurt anyone!”

VACUUM: “Appreciate!”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “Do some good!”

FIREBALL,
GREEN MEANIE
& MOUSETRAP: “And don’t hurt anyone!”

MOUSETRAP: “Yes, from now on, I’m going to be a different person!”

GREEN MEANIE: “You even look different.”

MOUSETRAP: “Just like you, GREEN MEANIE. You look different too!”

VACUUM: “Well … let’s see …. If we appreciate something, we don’t go ruining it….”

LEONARDO DA SNOZZIO: “Yeh! Like our bodies! We must take care of our health and our bodies.

GREEN MEANIE: “…. and our minds!”

VACUUM: “We should appreciate our school and our parents, too!”

DECISION MAKER: “Yes! You must show respect! And you must not hurt anyone!”

MOUSETRAP: “I’ve sure been doing the wrong things.”

ALL TOGETHER: “That’s for sure!”

DECISION MAKER: “Yes, MOUSETRAP, you were on the wrong track. You must use your gifts to do something good with your life!”

FIREBALL: “I guess we better not fight anymore!”

ALL: “Or say things to hurt anyone!” (They all look at GREEN MEANIE)

GREEN MEANIE: “I’m through being mean. From now on I’m going to do some good! I’m going to use my green thumb to grow flowers … and vegetables! I’m going to make the world a more beautiful place and I’m going to share what I grow with other people! And no I will not plant tobacco!”

DECISION MAKER: “Now you have the idea! I will be leaving soon but remember … I will always be with you in your mind. You can call on me anytime. I will help you make the right decision so you can act with precision. You see, every life has only so many tics and so many tocs. And, when your tics stop tocking and your tocs stop ticking, you will see me again. And then, I will decide – did you live your life with poipus?”

PUPPETS: “We get it!”

(The puppets sing “We have Poipus”. While they are singing, the Decision Maker leaves.)

WE HAVE POIPUS SONG
(sung in parts)

We have poipus
I have poipus
Now we understand
We are part of a plan.
Poipus, If we have poipus we must be impointant!
Yes I have poipus
And I have poipus
We’re part of a plan we must do what we can.
There’s only one of you
There’s only one of me
There’s lots we can do if only we are free
If I am free I can climb a tree…..
If I am free the birds will sing to me
Bird Dance solo
Every time we choose we must remember our poipus.
Day or night we must choose right
Life is full of choices remember you poipus.
No matter where you’ve been
No matter what you’ve done
Up will come the sun
If you remember your poipus.
And so we must get on track,
Stay on track,
There’s no turning back
Just remeber your poipus.
And when are time is done,
We can say,
We lived our lives,
With Poipus!
