SCENE
1
The scene begins with a shot of the Wiggleprise in space, followed by OSCAR THE GROUCH looking up at the sky because he misses his beloved SLIMEY. He misses his WORM so much, he even made (& messed up) his bed for when he comes back. Maria notices OSCAR looking sad, & admits that she misses him too (he used to make surprise visits at the Fix-it Shop). Maria thinks it's nice that she & OSCAR feel the same way about SLIMEY, but OSCAR tells her to scram so he can miss his WORM by himself. He abhors the thought of sharing how sad he is.
