Scene: Disheveled nerdy type guy, tall, long neck, pointy nose. He stands in front of a white screen set, a toothbrush in one hand, a twisted tube of toothpaste in the other. He speaks.
"Hi, I'm Chuckie de Ziro, and I used to depend on these [Motions with toothpaste and brush. The movement squirts a dollop of toothpaste off to stage left. Someone squeals, "Hey!" and yells an expletive].
"Oh! Sorry! You should have moved!"
"Well, anyway, as I said, I used to depend on these. Frankly, they didn't help my love life at all. I wanted to make my smile irresistible. But I brushed and brushed and still couldn't get a date. I couldn't get the black marks and yellow stains off."
[Woman enters from stage right. Tall, attractive. She walks to Chuckie and inspects his teeth like he's a horse for sale.]
"Eeeew, the teeth are okay, but forget the face that comes with them." [She marches off. Chuckie, in shock, watches her go. He speaks.]
"Um, yeah! See! She says my teeth are okay now! The girls didn't use to say that. They would look at my mouth and run away...I mean, really fast. My teeth were ugly. Decayed, too." [Leans closer to camera.] "Just between you and me, I think all that rot made them smell."
[He pauses for effect, then speaks.]
"So I went to Pearly White Dental Associates. They repaired my teeth and shined them up, making me the handsome dude you see before you now. And now, if you'll excuse me, I have a date."[A fluffy white sheep walks across stage to him. He pets it and smiles.]
"The irony is she doesn't care about my teeth. Go to Pearly White today and get your smile back like I did." [They exit together.]
