The curtain opens; we are in the The Avant family kitchen. BETH, LUCAS and JASON are sitting at the table; BETH is clipping LUCAS’ toenails.

LUCAS: No, Mommy! You’re going to snip off my little toe!

BETH: No, I won’t. I’m very careful. Besides, if I do, your daddy will wear it on a chain around his neck.

JASON: Yep! Right alongside the severed ears of my vanquished foes!
