Mummy Trouble

[scene opens inside a public library, as a little girl is standing in front of a "sarcophagus" (made out of cardboard boxes) as library patrons look on]
LIBRARIAN 1: Welcome to the special mummy exhibit. Please notice our mummy tomb.
[cut to a quick closeup of the sarcophagus (as ominous music plays), then cut back to the librarian]
LIBRARIAN 1: And this book we found with the mummy ...
[she points to a copy of Tutankhamen sitting on a nearby shelf, then one of the patrons places a paper bag over his head]
THIEF: Okay, gimmee the book!
[he takes another book and points it at the librarian like a gun, so she takes the "mummy" book and hands it to him]
THIEF: And gimmee all your money!
[she heads over to the front desk]
THIEF: Move fast!
[she walks behind the desk, then opens the "cash register"]
THIEF: Hurry up! I don't have all day!
[he takes another bag and puts it on the desk]
THIEF: Put 'em in here! All of it!
[she takes the money and puts it in the bag, then the thief exits the library]
THIEF: Thank you!
["The mummy awakens ... " appears on screen, then cut to the sarcophagus as a little girl wrapped in toilet paper slowly sits up]
["The plot thickens slightly in a secret hidden lair ... " appears on screen, then cut to a young boy wearing a wig dancing in the middle of the room, when the thief enters]
THIEF: Master, master! I found the book!
MAD SCIENTIST: Give it to me!
[he hands him the book]
MAD SCIENTIST: Ah, with this book I will rule the world!
THIEF: I also have the money!
MAD SCIENTIST: Give it to me!
[he hands him the bag]
MAD SCIENTIST: You fool, these are library bucks!
THIEF: What're those?
MAD SCIENTIST: Library bucks are when you can read a book in thirty minutes and get one dollar off your fines!
[the thief turns to the camera and smiles]
THIEF: What a great deal!
[an "applause" sound effect is played in the background]
MAD SCIENTIST: Yes, what a great deal, but this is not real money!
THIEF: Sorry Master, it won't happen again!
MAD SCIENTIST: You will be sorry ...
[he reaches for a lever, when he waves for the thief to step a little closer]
MAD SCIENTIST: Can you move a little--
[the thief steps closer]
MAD SCIENTIST: Can you move over there?
[he takes another step closer]
THIEF: Here?
[he pulls the lever, and the thief "falls" down a trap door ... then cut to the thief being attacked by alligators (made out of cardboard)]
THIEF: Ahhh! No, please! This can't be happening? Why do I always have to die!
[cut to the mad scientist looking down at the thief]
THIEF: [from off camera] No, help me! Help help!
MAD SCIENTIST: Next time, get the right money!
THIEF: [from off camera] My hand!
[someone off camera throws a fake hand at the mad scientist, who picks it up]
MAD SCIENTIST: Eww, a hand ... Here you go, my pets.
[he throws the hand back down into the "pit", then starts dancing again]
MAD SCIENTIST: Dance party!
THIEF: [from off camera] Help me! Help, I'm still dying!
["Meanwhile back in the library ... " appears on screen, then cut to a young boy pulling a book off the shelf]
PATRON 1: This is just the book I wa--
[the mummy shambles up behind him and pulls him down off camera]
PATRON 1: Ahhh!
[the mummy gets up, and the patron (turned into a mummy himself) also gets up and shuffles off camera]
[cut to another young boy browsing the shelves, when the mummy sneaks up behind him and pulls him down off camera]
PATRON 2: Ahhh!
[she gets up, and once again the patron has been turned into a mummy]
[cut to two more young boys browsing the shelves, when the new mummies appear and pull them down]
PATRON 3: Ahhh!
PATRON 4: Mummies!
[they get up, and once again the patrons have been turned into mummies]
[cut to the librarian calmly typing at her desk, as one of the mummies is sitting in a nearby chair and moaning to itself]
LIBRARIAN 1: Hmm, the customers look a little strange today ...
[cut to various shots of the mummies wandering around the library and mindlessly typing on the computers]
LIBRARIAN 1: I'm gonna go make a phone call.
[she gets up and dials the phone]
LIBRARIAN 1: [into the phone] Hello, Special Forces?
[cut to one of the mummies pulling books off the "Easy Nonfiction" shelf, then back to the librarian]
LIBRARIAN 1: [into the phone] I mean, the customers have turned into mummies!
[she hangs up, then cut to a mummy continually bumping into the wall, as a young boy wearing a black gi enters the library and walks up to the librarian]
LIBRARIAN 1: You're a Special Force?
NINJA: That's right, I'm a ninja!
LIBRARIAN 1: People are turning into mummies, can you help us?
NINJA: That's what I'm here for ... I will use my special ninja powers!
[cut to one of the bookshelves, as the ninja jumps into view]
NINJA: Hi yah!
[he starts sneaking around the shelf, whne a mummy runs in behind him and tackles him to the ground]
NINJA: Ahhh!
[he continues to scream like a little girl from off camera, then falls silent ... he gets up, transformed into a mummy, and shambles away]
[cut to the ninja/mummy and his companion smashing a nearby book display, when another little girl walks up and reprimands them]
LIBRARIAN 2: Excuse me, gentlemen! Don't you realize this is a library? Go sit down and read a book!
[the mummy shrugs and walks off]
[the ninja/mummy puts his head down, then walks off]
LIBRARIAN 2: Honestly, this is getting out of hand!
[cut to the other librarian sitting at the front desk, when the original mummy enters the scene]
LIBRARIAN 1: Are you the one that's turning people into mummies? What do you want? Who are you?
MUMMY: Return my book ...
["Back at the not so secret lair ... " appears on screen, then cut to the mad scientist holding the book while sitting next to a mummy, as the two librarians enter]
MAD SCIENTIST: Who are you?
LIBRARIAN 2: We're here for the book!
MAD SCIENTIST: [pause] And?
LIBRARIAN 1: People are turning into mummies!
MAD SCIENTIST: That is not my problem! It's my plan!
LIBRARIAN 1: Give us the book!
MAD SCIENTIST: Never! Mummy, go after them!
[the mummy gets up and chases one of the librarians, while the other grabs the book and tries to pull it away from the mad scientist]
LIBRARIAN 1: Gimmee that!
MAD SCIENTIST: No, I need it!
[she eventually takes it away from him, then pushes the lever as the mad scientist "falls" through the trap door]
[cut to the alligator pit, as the mad scientist is being eaten by his (cardboard) pets]
MAD SCIENTIST: I own you! No, I own you!
[cut back to the two librarians, as they run off camera while the sounds of sirens and a helicopter flying overhead can be heard]
LIBRARIAN 1: Let's get out of here!
[the mummy wanders in front of the camera in slow motion, as "The End?" appears on screen]
