SCENE 1 Zoe and Abby greet "Sensei Nina" as they are about to begin their karate class. Grover appears and claims to be a karate expert. His knowledge, however, is all based on watching Monster Karate Master 3. Thus, he is unable to split a small table in twain, or do today's lesson - kicking a ball off a stand with a roundhouse kick. He concedes to Nina's point that one can learn karate by just watching a movie, so he runs off to watch a second.
