Steven

I was looking for a Medical mobility scooter for my ninety year old father-in-law a short time ago. I checked out the: sizes, speed, range, portability... you know, the usual stuff. Then I checked the customer sanctification ratings and "comments". I was reading about one particular scooter, a three wheel scooter that really looks cool. It has a range of forty miles on one battery charge, a streamline design and has a top speed of 25 miles an hour, which is about 5 times faster than all the other scooters... So I'm thinking, why would any elderly or handicapped person want a scooter that went 25 miles an hour?... Then I scrolled down and read the very first customer comment. It was from an eighty five year old lady named, Lilly... I would now like to read directly from her comment. "I really love your scooter with it's fancy modern design. It did however take some getting use to. The speed knob for instance should have larger printing on it. Turn left for slow and Right for fast. As I was adjusting my bifocals to read the instructions I grabbed the handle to bring the front panel closer to me; which brings me to the second thing. You should also have a warning sigh about the throttle being located on the handle. I was told by one of the nurses in the nursing home, that dove out of the way as I shot by her,... at 25 miles an hour, that she hadn't seen anything move in that hallway that fast since old man Crawly ate all that rum cake and chilly peppers last year. Your scooter also threw me three times. One time I ended up in the intersection of Magnolia and Main street. I'm not complaining though. Your scooter took me back to the nineteen thirty's when I use to brake wild horses on our family's ranch. That's why I gave your scooter five stars! Thanks for the great memories and a great ride"... Well after reading her comment, I thought, wow!, what a tough old broad she must be. So my producers and I decided to invite Lilly on the show. And here she is ladies and gentle men... Miss Lilly Thomas.

Steven points to stage right, the curtain opens and an 85 year old lady on a scooter comes flying out onto the stage at 25 miles an hour doing a wheelie, then two donuts, and disappears behind the curtains at stage left. A loud crash is heard back stage, a few strange objects roll out from behind the curtain. A silent pause and then an old lady shouts from back stage

And we're back. Seated next to me is Lilly, ladies and gentle men... So Lilly, it looks like they managed to fix you up rather quickly.

Okay everybody, just to clear things up, Lilly was not really on that scooter. It was actually her grandson Randy, a well known Hollywood stunt man.

Randy walks on stage, shakes Steven's hand, hugs Lilly and takes a seat next to her.

Steven (CONT'D)

So, Randy, before we get to your grandmother, let me ask you, why did you become a stunt man?

SLRobertson - 7 months ago 3 versions.

Randy

Well, my grandmother. Lilly. She has been a stunt woman, I guess as far back as stunt women existed almost.

Lilly

Well, Randy, I'm not quite that old. How ever I did know Tom Mix though.
