Cynthia, Marcy, and Tabby Cat Hamlet are searching for Penelope Kitten. She’s been missing for over an hour.
Cynthia (calling): Penelopeeeee… Penelopeeeee… where are you…? Penelopeeee….
Tabby Cat Hamlet finally finds Penelope Kitten hiding under the bed covers.
Hamlet: Awwww… P… what are you doing?
penelope kitten: hiding.
Hamlet: From what?
penelope kitten: leprechauns.
Hamlet: Why are you hiding from leprechauns?
penelope kitten: not wearing green. don’t wanna get pinched. it hurts. it’s not nice.
Hamlet: Oh, Penelope. Leprechauns don’t exist. That’s a superstition – same as saying black cats are bad luck.
penelope kitten: no. no. totes true. got pinched five times already.
penelope kitten: yeah yeah. they’re out there.
Just then Marcy struts into the bedroom.
Marcy: So did you find her?
Hamlet realizes what’s going on. He pushes the covers back over Penelope.
Hamlet (innocently): Nope.
Marcy: Too bad.
Hamlet (nonchalantly): Hey Marcy! I notice … you aren’t wearing green today.
They lock eyes for a moment.
Marcy suddenly bolts away with Hamlet in hot pursuit.
penelope kitten (from under the covers): leprechauns are super scary.
Hamlet returns with a four leaf clover.
Hamlet: Here ya go, P. Put this on your head for the rest of the day.
