Karla and Tom together. Karla is happy.
TOM: You're in a better mood. What happened to being upset because your fans are all fifteen-year-old horndogs?
KARLA: I was a little miffed, yes....
KARLA (darkly, scheming, gleeful, perhaps even with scary mood lighting): ...until I thought of the possibilities.
KARLA: "What good are teenagers?" I thought. Then I realized: they're clay to be shaped by ME.
KARLA: I'll give them advice during their bad times, lead them when they're at their most vulnerable. I'll show them how to date, teach them how to work out.
KARLA: Then, when they are of voting age, I will OWN THEIR SOUL. I will be their mother, their mentor, their savior - LEADER OF MY OWN CULT OF BRAINWASHED YOUTH!
KARLA (scary laugh again, echoing the first time we did this gag): MWOO HAH HAH HAH HAH!
TOM (same expression, too): I still fear you.
KARLA (thoughtful, the mania completely faded, finger in mouth as she considers): Unfortunately, it means I'll have to watch "High School Musical" so I have something to talk to them about....
