Elizabeth opens the minute, questioning the monster about who he is and demands to know where she is. She tries to take control of the situation. She uses the same tactics she uses on Freddy to keep him in line. However, she has met her match since the monster does not answer her or answer to her. He only moans his responses. Once Elizabeth realizes what the monster intends, she tries to tell him about an important phone call she needs to answer. Once the monster reveals his enormous schwanzstucker, she cannot help but gasp and even calls out, “Woof!” When the monster takes her, she bellows out lines from the operetta, Naughty Marietta and we realize, even though this was one uncomfortable minute, we were able to get through it thanks to the genius of Madeline Kahn.
It’s good to end by saying, “Sweet mystery of life at last I (we) found you!”
Joining us again today as our guest on the Wilder Ride is Pete Mummert, one of the hosts on the hugely popular, Indiana Jones Minute. We are grateful to have had Pete’s steady voice, guiding intellect and sure-footing for today’s minute.
