Clip 3: "The Librarian's Theme"
[scene opens with a young girl and an older female librarian (brown hair, glasses, red and gray scarf, blue blouse, red skirt) pushing a book cart through the church hallway]
LIBRARIAN: I haven't read that one yet! I can't wait to read more books by Max Tomato, have you heard of him? Max Tomato? Perhaps Max To-mah-to?
[the girl (with a bored look on her face) does not reply, and the librarian (oblivious to her boredom) continues talking quickly]
LIBRARIAN: I don't, I don't recall ... And then there's a book about a lot of rain in autumn! I can't remember that title. I think it's about, maybe it's rain in springtime. I don't--
[her eyes light up]
LIBRARIAN: Oh! And there's a book called "The Hungarian Librarian." Just like me! But not the Hungarian part, because I'm not Hungarian ... but I am a librarian!
[cut to two puppet mice watching them from the ceiling]
WILLIAM: Geez, that librarian sure likes to talk an awful lot!
HANK: Yeah, well, it's 'cause she's gotta be in the library all day ... So when she finally gets out, she doesn't know how to be quiet!
[they both laugh, then cut to the librarian entering her office (as the girl begrudgingly follows)]
LIBRARIAN: And then of course there's always "The Chronicles of Blarnia" by C.S. Brewis. Not those are classics!
[she stops and looks around]
LIBRARIAN: Well, here we are!
