2886c
SCENE 1
Gina notices Maria and Luis chatting with Gordon about their trip. They show off the gifts they received during Frances' ceremony. They hear some loud crashing and a donkey braying. The culprit, they obviously conclude, is Oscar. He explains that he bought a mule named Iago from a rancher in Montana and he's having a great time with his new pet inside his trash can. The adults want him out of the can because of the racket he's making, but Oscar doesn't think it will happen (Iago's as stubborn as a mule).
2886d
SCENE 1 cont'd
Maria tries calling Iago out, as they do with Barkley, but he continues making a mess. Oscar points out the rope that is wrapped to Iago's neck and suggests they pull on that. The adults get into a tug-of-war with the mule. Luis leaves them with the rope, getting some inspiration.
