Prepare the following monologue: 

HAROLD: Just you keep your eye on me for the next four weeks. It still takes ten days for the instruments to arrive, but it takes four weeks for the uniforms. And instruction books! I have a revolutionary new method called the Think System where you don’t bother with notes. When the uniforms arrive, they forget everything else – at least long enough for me to collect and leave. Oh, this is a refined operation, and I’ve got it timed right down to the last wave of the brakeman’s hand on the last train out of town

Prepare the following monologue:   

MARION: Professor Hill? Professor of what? At what college do they give a degree for annoying women on the street like a Saturday night rowdy at a public dance hall? Even if that should happen to be true, does that give you the right to follow me around wherever I go? Another thing, Mister Hill, I’m not as easily mesmerized or hoodwinked as some people in this town and I think it only fair to warn you that I have a shelf full of reference books in there which may very well give me some interesting information about you

 (Irish accent) You’ll have to excuse Winthrop, Professor. We can’t get him to say three words a day even to us. And if you get him to play in the band you’ll have St. Michael’s own way with you. But if anyone can do it, I’ll bet you can. Out of a crowd I’ll pick you for a sod-carrying, pipesmokin’, shamrock wearin’, harp-playin’, Mavorneen-pinchin’, Tara’s hall minstrel-singin’ Irishman! Be-gob and be-jabbers! Where are ye from, me
