Fly: Oh my god, my life is over, some one call the doctor, red rover, red rover!
Prince: My oh my, why must you cry? Red rover, red rover, just let this day be over.
Fly: You know, I used to be in a better body, but look at me now; did I deserve this? have I been that naughty? No one even bows.
Prince: Bow… I’m sorry but this I cannot allow, I am a prince after all, and to you this I have never vowed.
Fly: Say all you want Prince, but I know the truth; how you became what you are, how you maintained your youth.
Fly: So, your just going to ignore me now, is that it? If I was woman, surely you would not ignore me, not once, not one little bit.
Fly: Ugh… you can be such a boar! If I was in my current form, you do know that this would mean war.
Prince: Fly who do you think you are threatening me, you do not scare thee, but maybe just a little my dear, if you were a bumblebee.
Fly: Yeah, and if I was such, I’d sting you in your eye, so that you never see again, this I wish to imply.
Assistant: My Prince, if I may ask… But why do you quarrel with this atrocity? It’s plain to see, that in her tiny little body there’s lack of generosity.
Prince: Ha, my friend, could you have said that more comically.
Fly: I can; you are tweedle dumb, and he is tweedle dee. Heavens! I think you two just might need a lobotomy.
Assistant: I beg your pardon! But I have you know, I graduated from one the most prominent school in the city—La De Vardon.
Prince: Relax my friend. Lets hear her out, she must have had a current form, this I have no reason to doubt.
Assistant: Yes, doubt. That is what you should have my prince, madam is bad news; and for that I recommend another for you to choose.
Prince: My god man, have some class, don’t be so evil; a lady is still in our presents, don’t be such a silly goose.
Prince: So… go on, tell us what happened? And don’t you cry, I don’t have a napkin.
Fly: It was another woman, but obviously something else. One with powers, one that was skilled in stealth.
Prince: So your telling me that this woman was some sort of secret agent?
Assistant: No sir, I believe the madam is talking about something more ancient.
Fly: The woman told me I could be myself again if I had a kiss from a prince, and that everything in my life would soon make since.
Prince: I’m sorry but I am not kissing a fly, besides I might swallow you, I could die.
Fly: You could die? You mean I could die!
Assistant: It doesn’t matter! For neither of you this would be wise. Sir, if I may again… But this all sounds mighty familiar.
Prince: Yes, indeed, it does sound rather peculiar.
Fly: Screw this I’m going in. On my count; one, two, ten!
Assistant: Sigh. Here we go again…
Fly: Am I woman again, do I look as beautiful as ever.
Assistant: I’m sorry madam, but you might want to start writing out a few letters.
Fly: Oh, wow… your… well, this is a good look for you ya know.
Prince: Alfred bring my mirror, and don’t you dare tell me no!
Assistant: But Sir… If I…
Prince: Just bring me the silly mirror!
Prince: No… No! A frog again…
Fly: Well, you don’t look all that bad, on a scale from one to ten.
Prince: I should definitely swallow you now. On my count, one, two, ten!
Fly: Hey watch it Frog! I am not your tasty treat.
Assistant: Sir… please sit down; here you are, a lily pad for a seat.
Fly: I’m sorry, but what do you mean that you were a frog again.
Assistant: Just that madam, he was a frog before. It appears that you have met the same fate as he; but thank god, thank the heavens, it isn’t me.
Fly: So, how are we going to get back to what we were? How did you solve it the first time.
Prince: We… No, no, no. We are doing nothing. Just go find yourself a piece of fruit, or something.
Woman: Ha, ha, ha, ha.
Assistant: What was that?
Prince: I know what, and it was no bat, nor cat.
Fly: I-is it a rat?
Prince: No, Maid Marian.
Maid Marian: Oh, is that all you have to say, is that all you can do; why the long face my love, why so blue?
Fly: You… Why? Why did you do this to me? You promised me if I kissed a prince, that my life would be free.
Maid Marian: Is it not, your free as a bird, you have your prince now…
Assistant: Oh, don’t be absurd!
Maid Marian: Shut it scholar, or I’ll turn you into a turd!
Assistant: No, no, no. No need, mouth shut, understood, heard.
Prince: Marian if I may please have a word.
Maid Marian: Speak prince, but make it quick, for that my patience with has run pretty thick.
Prince: Out of all that I have done, why torture me still? Have you not had enough? I’m sorry for what happened, okay, I know with out him life must be rough.
Fly: What are you talking about prince? What did you do?
Maid Marian: Many things my dear, many reasons I had to pursue.
Assistant: My god! Its been years, Robin is with us no more. So just drop it already, we all promised this, we swore!
Maid Marian: I swore nothing, my love is gone, as will be the same for you all.
Fly: I’m sorry; not to stall, but what does this have to do with me? Why must I fall?
Maid Marian: Because… You are the one princess the prince has always loved, the only one he ever wished to see in the stars above.
Prince: I-It cant be… Princess Daphne…
