[ open on a local playground, where Robin sits at the base of the jungle gym playing with her dolly, while Phillip, tied by a harness to the gym, climbs the upper bars and attempts to free himself of his restrainment. Unsuccessful, he decides to sit next to Robin and talk to her. ]

Phillip: Hi, Robin!

Robin: Hi, Phillip.

Phillip: Hi, Robin!!

Robin: Hi, Phillip.

Phillip: Hi, Robin!!!

Robin: [ angry ] I said hello already, Phillip! Hello, hello, hello, hello-o-o-o-o!!

Phillip: [ wiping his face ] Okay. I want the news, not the weather.Robin, will you be my Valentine?

Robin: I’m already someone else’s Valentine.

Phillip: Whose?

Robin: An older boy. He gave me chocolates.

Phillip: I don’t like older boys. One time, an older boy tried tomake me eat some poo! He told me it was a tootsie roll!

Robin: Gross.

Phillip: And another ti-i-ime, some older boy peed into asoda can and made me drink it. hey told me it was Mountain Dew.

Robin: Hey, you want a Hertz donut?

Phillip: I’m not supposed to have sugar, I’m hypoglycenic andhyperactive. I’m a hyper-hypo! That’s why I wear a harness. Becausewhen I have sugar, I become a menace to myself and others.

Robin: There’s no sugar in a Hertz donut.

Phillip: Well, okay.. give me a Hertz donut!

[ Robin punches Phillip in the arm ]

Robin: Hurts, don’t it? Get it! [ laughs ]

Together: “The girls got the buns, and the boys got the hot dogs!The girls got the buns, and the boys got the hot dogs!” [ they laugh ]

Phillip: When you hit me in the arm, it didn’t hurt you know.

Robin: Wow. You.. you’re strong.

Phillip: Thanks.

Robin: [ laughing ] That smell isn’t everything! [ laughs ]

Phillip: I’m running away from you. You’re making fun of me.[ runs out as far as he can, until the harness holds him back. After acouple of tries, he gives up and resumes sitting next to Robin. ] Okay,I’m staying.. I suppose.. You know, at the risk of sounding pathetic,I’ll ask you again: Will you be my Valentine?

Robin: Okay, Phillip. I’ll be your Valentine, if you wat some ofmy Valentine’s Day’s chocolate.

Phillip: I can’t eat chocolate. I’m not supposed to, on accountsugar makes me go mental.
