Miley Cyrus V/O: Hey, y’all! It’s “The Miley Cyrus Show”! with ME — Miley Cyrus!

Jingle: “I got guests, and a show
And I’m ready to go!
So I guess that’s… pretty cool.
It’s pretty cool!”

[ dissolve to Miley Cyrus standing in place for her monologue ]

Miley Cyrus: Hello, it’s Miley, y’all! This is like my show where I like talk to people who are pretty cool and we’ll like talk about things I think are pretty cool, and yeah, it’s pretty cool! And my Miley Cyrus band over here, we got Billy Ray Cyrus!

Billy Ray Cyrus: Miley, you are an absolute sunshine! It is just nuts how special you are. You are like God’s gift!

Miley Cyrus: Okay dad, thank you. Ok, so now I’m gonna do like, my comedy monologue. So I don’t know if y’all saw, but there’s a study that like, only 5% of French people go to the gym. So, I thought that was pretty funny because like, 5%? That’s a PRETTY small number of people going to the gym! So that’s my monologue. I thought it was pretty funny.

Billy Ray Cyrus: [laughing; the drummer in the background laughs as well] Oh, baby, you are hi-larious! You are like a pretty little George Lopez!

Miley Cyrus: [embarrassed] Okay! So, my guest tonight is a really serious actor and stuff like that, and now I’m a serious actor and stuff like that, so this will be pretty cool. Please give a big “Shellow” to Johnny Depp! [Depp enters, disinterested and barely hugs her] So, Johnny Depp, you play a creepy guy a lot, which I think is pretty cool.

Johnny Depp: Yes, I uh, enjoy exploring some, uh, darker characters.

Miley Cyrus: Yeah, me too! So, I’ve [brief pause for audience laughs], I’ve been a fan of yours going like all the way back to Willy Wonka, and there’s something that I’ve always wanted to ask you: Like, how do you pick out which movies you’re gonna do and like what’s your favorite movie you ever did and like what’s your favorite role you ever did and like who’s your best friend and like how tall are you and like what eyeliner do you wear and like are you American?

Johnny Depp: Well, it’s… kind of a lot to process…

Billy Ray Cyrus: [laughing] Look out, Depp! My baby girl wants some answers, [does a lame gesture with both pointer fingers] she’s coming to get ‘em!

Miley Cyrus: [embarrassed] Dad!

Billy Ray Cyrus: You make me smile!

Miley Cyrus: So, Johnny Depp! Like, what is your next movie that’s coming out?

Johnny Depp: Actually, Tim Burton and I are working on a haunting adaptation of Good Night, Moon.

Miley Cyrus: [nods with slight confusion] Yeah, that’s pretty cool! So like, let’s roll the clip!

Johnny Depp: Oh, I didn’t bring a clip!

Miley Cyrus: No, it’s a clip from my movie. I think you’re gonna like it ‘cause it’s like, really dramatic. Let’s roll that clip!

[Miley and a soldier in uniform stand in the front yard of a house; the movie is titled “Goodbye, Jeff” and dramatic piano music is playing]

Jeff: When you miss me, just think of that old oak tree out in the yard and remember my promise.

Miley Cyrus: This is so sad, because like, you’re my boyfriend and like, we just fell in love and stuff like that, and it’s like so dramatic ‘cause you’re going off to war and stuff like that, [the soldier looks at the camera in confusion] and this is just like, so not cool! [Miley looks at the camera and grins; the clip ends]

Miley Cyrus: So, that was like, pretty cool, right? Okay! Well, that’s our show! I thought it was pretty cool!

Johnny Depp: Is that it? I flew here from the south of France.

Miley Cyrus: Oh my god, I love France! Did you know that like, only 5% of French people go to the gym? Remember that? It’s from my monologue. That’s pretty funny. Well, thanks for watching, y’all! [Theme song starts] Come on dad, let’s hit it! [Billy ray comes with his guitar] I got guests/ and a show / and I’m ready to go / so I guess that’s pretty cool!

Billy Ray Cyrus: Cool!

Miley Cyrus: It’s pretty cool!

Billy Ray Cyrus: Pretty cool!
