SHIPLEY

STICKY VICKY, IT’S A CRYIN’ SHAME,
I THOUGHT YOU UNDERSTOOD
IT’S MORE THAN A GAME.
JUST HOW SELFISH CAN ONE PLAYER BE?
DID YOU ONCE CONSIDER
HOW THIS ALL AFFECTS ME?
YOU LET DOWN THE SCHOOL.
YOU WEAKENED THE TEAM.
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY
YOU PUMMELED MY DREAM.
YOU MAY BE IN TRACTION NOW,
BUT THE VICTIM HERE IS ME,
IT’S EVERYTHING I COULD HAVE BEEN,
AND STILL MAY NEVER BE-
VICARIOUSLY,
I’M BROKEN IN A MILLION PIECES.
VICARIOUSLY,
WITH EVERY BREATH MY PAIN INCREASES.
ALTHOUGH I’M BARELY ALIVE,
SOMEHOW I’LL SURVIVE,
HANGING PRECARIOUSLY...

(SHIPLEY takes a deep drag on her cigarette.)

HANGING PRECARIOUSLY...
VICARIOUSLY,
I’LL FULFILL MY ONE AMBITION.
VICARIOUSLY,
I’M STILL A WOMAN ON A MISSION.
AND I CAN FEEL AS SOON AS I HEAL,
I’LL RISE AGAIN AND WIN.
SO LET THE HEALING BEGIN,
HEAVEN, HEAR MY PLEA,
HEAL HER AND SET ME FREE,
VICARIOUSLY.

Thank you. And don’t forget to tip your orderlies.
Track Name: Scenes from a Spaghetti Benefit
SHIPLEY

DO YOU REMEMBER GETTING READY
FOR THE ANNUAL SPAGHETTI BENEFIT,
IN 1969?
YOU AND I , PUT IN CHARGE
OF THE ANNUAL SPAGHETTI BENEFIT,
AND WE BOTH HAD TOO MUCH WINE.
WE STARTED FLIPPIN’ FROZEN MEATBALLS
‘CROSS THE FLOOR,
WE WERE YOUNG AND WE WERE HUNGRY
WHO COULD ASK FOR ANY MORE?

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL

YES, I REMEMBER ACTING SILLY
AT THE ANNUAL SPAGHETTI BENEFIT
IN 1969.
IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE ONLY
ANNUAL SPAGHETTI BENEFIT,
WHERE NO ONE CAME TO DINE.
PEOPLE CAME TOGETHER
TO SUPPORT A WINNING TEAM.
A TEAM THAT WAS DESTINED TO LIVE
THE FIELD HOCKEY DREAM.

SHIPLEY

THAT WAS THE YEAR
WE DIDN’T WE HAD IT ALMOST ALL,
WE COULDN’T NOT ALTHOUGH
ALMOST ALL-
THEN WE TOSSED IT!

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL

THAT WAS THE YEAR,
YOU TOOK THAT FATAL FALL.

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL & SHIPLEY

WE NEARLY BUT HOW COULD WE
NEVER BUT NOW HAD WE LOST IT.

SHIPLEY

WHATEVER HAPPENED
TO THE PLAYERS IN OUR PAST?
ARE THEY SOMEWHERE
ON A GOLF COURSE?
ARE THEY SITTING BY THE POOL?
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO
THE GALS WITH ALL THE GUTS?
THE WOMEN WE PLAYED
HOCKEY WITH AT SCHOOL.

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL

WELL, LINDSEY FOUND A LAWYER,
AND THEY’VE GOT A PLACE IN GREENWICH.
BUCKY FOUND A LAWYER,
AND THEY’VE GOT A PLACE IN GREENWICH.
MUFFY’S GOT A LAWYER,
AND THEY FOUND A LITTLE PLACE
IN GREENWICH VILLAGE!


SHIPLEY
WITH EVERY SEASON PASSING BY,
I WANT TO GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY.
REDEEM MYSELF BEFORE I DIE.
SISTER, HEAR MY DESPERATE CRY!

THIS IS THE YEAR
WE’LL MAKE IT TO WHERE
WE CAN’T RECALL,

SR GEORGE MICHAEL & SHIPLEY

AND NOT IF WE COULD
BUT THEN, WHAT IF WE WOULD
FOREVER?
THIS IS THE YEAR,
WE’LL TRIUMPH AFTER ALL,
AND WE’LL TAKE TO WHERE
WE NEVER WERE THERE-
TOGETHER.

SHIPLEY
Wouldn’t it give you a warm feeling to give another orphan girl the same chance you had?

SR GEORGE MICHAEL
Yes, it would. And I have the perfect candidate.

SHIPLEY
Bless you, Sister.

SR GEORGE MICHAEL & SHIPLEY

AND WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE
THE ANNUAL SPAGHETTI BENEFIT,
OF 1969!

MAUREEN waves goodbye to SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL who wipes away a tear. She leaves St. Annie’s and spins around a few times with SHIPLEY.The LADIES ENTERS and are going through a practice routine as they spin in.)

CAN SHE DO IT?
IS SHE READY?
IS SHE BUILT TO LAST?
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET IT PAST HER NET?
CAN SHE CUT IT?
CAN SHE DO THE JOB?
WATCH HER WEAVE!

WITH OUR EYES ON THE PRIZE,
AND THE FIRE IN THE PIT OF HER SOUL
TO NEVER YIELD

GONZALAS & NUNS, SHIPLEY & CO.

AND FIELD EVERY GOAL, MY GIRL

KENNEDY

METAL TO METAL
A CLOSET OF STEEL,
CAN IT CONTAIN
THE WAY THAT I FEEL?
METAL TO METAL
EVERYTHING’S SO UNREAL...

I’M A BALL O CONFUSION
CAUGHT OFF MY GAME,
IT’S ALL AN ILLUSION?
NOTHING’S THE SAME.
METAL TO METAL
WHAT DOES IT ALL CONCEAL?
AND IT’S ALL BECAUSE YOU’RE-

ONE LOCKER AWAY FROM ME,
OH, SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR.
ONE LOCKER AWAY,
IT’S LIKE REALLY TOO BIZARRE.
ONE LOCKER AWAY FROM ME
SO RIGHT NEXT TO WHERE YOU ARE,
ONE LOCKER AWAY
I’M LIKE A FIREFLY IN A JAR,
WISHING UPON A STAR...

MAYBE I’M DIFFERENT.
WHAT IF IT’S TRUE?
IT’S LIKE A SHIN GUARD HIT ME
OUT OF THE BLUE.
GYM BAG TO GYM BAG,
WHAT DO I HAVE HIDE?

I’M OPENING MY HEART
TO A WHOLE NEW SENSATION
THE FEELING WE CLICK.
THE RIGHT COMBINATION...

(The Strokanov Sisters ENTER sing the chorus lyric and KENNEDY does an obligato/riff over the lyric.)

ONE LOCKER AWAY FROM ME,

I’M FIGHTING AGAINST
THE FORCE OF MY OWN RESISTANCE.
AND I’M PRAYIN’ THAT THESE GLORY DAYS,
ARE ONLY JUST A PASSING PHASE,
NO LONGER WILL I PLAY PRETEND,
I CAN LOSE THE STICK AND FIND A FRIEND.

GAVIN

I’VE NEVER SAID THESE WORDS BEFORE,
SO ANYONE COULD HEAR.

GONZALAS
I’VE NEVER HEARD THEM SPOKEN IN MY EAR.
E-EAR…
MAYBE THERE’S A FIGHTING CHANCE,
OUT HERE ON MY OWN.

MISTRESS THATCHER
If this new goalie is an illegal ringer, Barnes will be fired from coaching! Then I, Puggie Thatcher will become Varsity coach and the ultimate revenge will be mine.

HA! HA! HA! HA!!


FROM THE SIDELINES I WOULD PACE,
WITH A SILVER TRAY
OF ORANGE WEDGES.
FROM THE SIDELINES I WOULD CHASE,
AN ERRANT BALL
THROUGH THE THORNY HEDGES.
ON THE OUTSKIRTS I WOULD PRAY,
FOR THE AFTERNOON THAT I WOULD PLAY...

PUGGIE WAS WATCHING YOU!
PUGGIE WAS WATCHING YOU!
PUGGIE WAS WATCHING YOU!
FROM THE SIDELINES.

FROM THE SIDELINES OUT OF PLACE,
I WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE SELECTED.
FROM THE SIDELINES I WOULD LACE
AN ORANGE WEDGE GOING UNSUSPECTED.
AT SEVENTEEN,
YOU CAN’T BLAME ME,
IF BARNES COULDN’T HOLD HER
LSD...

ANY AND ALL OF YOUR DEVIOUS TRICKS
SHALL NEVER BE MATCH TO MINE.
BARNES, YOU’LL CHOKE IN EIGHTY SIX,
LIKE YOU CHOKED IN SIXTY NINE.
AND I CAN SEE IT ALL.
I WILL MAKE THAT CALL.
AS I WATCH YOU FALL,
FROM THE SIDELINES.

PUGGIE IS WATCHING YOU!
PUGGIE IS WATCHING YOU!
PUGGIE IS WATCHING YOU!
FROM THE SIDELINES.

SHIPLEY

IF YOU BELIEVE IT
THEY SAY YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT.
IT SOUNDS SO EASY TO DO.

THATCHER
Hello, Sports Authority...

SHIPLEY

THE SIMPLE FACT IS,
TO PUT IT INTO PRACTICE,
YOU GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE
.
THATCHER
I’d like to report a ringer!

SHIPLEY

WHATEVER FORCES PROPEL ME,
THE BATTLE RAGES ON,

THATCHER
Game in progress!

SHIPLEY

THE BOARD MAY VOTE TO EXPELL ME,
BUT ONLY AFTER I’VE GONE!

LADIES

OUR STRIDE.
ON THE PRECIPICE
OF A MIRACLE,
ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THE GREAT DIVIDE.

SHIPLEY

SHIPLEY & LADIES

KEEP THEIR PRIDE.
THAT’S WHERE WE WILL BE,
MAKING HER-STORY!

(war cry Through heavy breathing.)

OH OH OH...
OH OH OH...
OH OH OH...

SHIPLEY
No. No no, no! Hey!!Maureen, look at me, honey. You freakin‘ got this and you know it!! Use your right angles! And keep low. The rest of you, take control. Open up a shooting lane. Let the Strokanovs‘ give us a little taste of the old country.

LADIES

COACH!

SHIPLEY

Leave everything you’ve got all on the field. We are in it to win it! Go! Go! GO!!!

LADIES

COACH!
CARILLO
Aaaaaaaaaaannd it’s the center pass. The Appaloosas have the ball --they’re opening up a shooting lane and it’s Van Dyke in control. Katia Strokanov blocks Lindross, Ivana B. Strokanov takes out Lemieux. Katia Strokanov body checks Kozlovski - Ivana B. Stokanov punishing Saint Venison- Katia Strokanov overpowers Lapierre. Ladies and Gentlemen, talk about about your sister act! With five seconds left-Van Dyke still in control-- the field is wide open and it’s shot aaaaand SAVE BY BRODUER!!! And that ends the first half of this World Championship game! But wait!
There seems to be some commotion towards the stadium holding cells. We haven’t seen this court room opened since “the great bra burning of 1971”. I’ll keep you abreast of all breaking news.

JUDGE WANDA “BOOTSY” WOODS!

WOODS & CO.

JUDGE WANDA “BOOTSY” WOODS!

JUDGE WOODS
That’s right. I am the honorable Wanda “Bootsy” Woods. So I’m sitting in the stands enjoying the game like everybody else when I hear there’s possible use of an illegal orphaned athlete. Tell me this isn’t true! For as we proceed, we need focus and reflect alright-

WHEN THE MORNING SUN IS SHINING BRIGHT,
THROUGH THE DEEPEST HEART
OF THE DARKEST NIGHT,
EVERYTHING’S FOR THE CHILDREN.
WE’RE DOIN’ IT FOR THE CHILDREN.
GIVE THEM WINGS AND LET THEM FLY,
GIVE THEM WORDS TO LIVE BY....

Okay, Oyez!
Let’s hear the relative facts
To render whether this player does or do not get the ax.

THATCHER
This goalie is the guilty one!
An orphan purchased from that nun!

JUDGE WOODS
Is this true Coach Barnes?

SHIPLEY
Your Honor,
IT STARTED BACK IN SIXTY NINE,
I WAS YOUNG AND RUNNIN’ WILD.
I DIDN’T WANT A HUSBAND
BUT I DESPERATELY NEEDED A CHILD.
A CHILD TO BE ALL THE THINGS THAT I WASN’T.
SHOW ME A PARENT WHO DOESN’T? (SHE’S EVERY PARENT)
AT A REPRODUCTIVE CLINIC
I WADED THROUGH THE POOL,
AND CHOSE AN OLYMPIAN ATHLETE.
GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL.

JUDGE WOODS

TEST TUBE BABY.
Go on.

SHIPLEY

SO THIS ORPHAN GIRL WITH RAVEN HAIR,
IS A FOSTER CHILD IN MY CARE,
IT’S ONLY MERE COINCIDENCE,
SHE HAPPENS TO PLAY SOME MEAN DEFENSE.
IN THE WEEK THAT SHE’S BEEN HERE WITH ME
SHE’S CLOSER TO ME THAN FAMILY.
THE DAUGHTER THAT I NEVER HAD,
INSTEAD OF THE BOY WITHOUT A DAD.
Gavin, knows this already.

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
Your Honor, may I interrupt?

JUDGE WOODS
Is it relative to the case?

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
Oh, it’s relative, your honor.

MOTHER OF MARTINI NOW,
THE TRUTH BE TOLD AT LAST,
BENEATH MY HABIT I’M A
TWISTED SISTER WITH A PAST!

JUDGE WOODS
Ain’t we all!-

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
Since I couldn’t have Shipley child I did the next best thing.

I TOOK IT UPON MY SELF ONE DAY,
THE ACT OF PROCREATION,
I WENT TO SHIPLEY’S DONER
TO RECEIVE HIS NEXT DONATION.

SHIPLEY
Oh, no, you didn’t!

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
Oh, yes I did.

GONZALAS
So my sister’s my mother! Is this really true?

GAVIN
We’re sister and brother?

GONZALAS
I’m not from Peru?

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
It’s true. Tell me you didn’t do it.

GONZALAS
Do what? That’s gross!

NURSE HEDGES

(ENTERS with a file envelope.)
If it pleases the court, I am registered nurse Hedges. May I approach, Your Honor?

JUDGE WOODS
Is it relative to the case?

(She delivers it to the JUDGE who opens it and reads it as she listens.)

NURSE HEDGES

Oh, it’s relative!
I MAY BE TRAUMA NURSE BY DAY
BUT THAT’S ONLY HALF OF WHAT I DO.
UNDER COVER IN THE MOONLIGHT
IT’S A DIFFERENT I.C.U. (I SEE YOU!)
I’M A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE,
PRIVATE DETECTIVE,
I’LL FIND YOU WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR.
I’M YOUR CIRCUMSPECTIVE,
PRIVATE DETECTIVE,
FROM THE OFFICES “BOI d’OR”.

ALL
(“BOI d’OR”?)

It means gold dust of the road.

REUNITING CHILDREN
CONCEIVED BY FOREIGN ATHLETES,
TOO DRUNK TO EVER GET EACH OTHERS NAMES.
THESE CHILDREN OF THE VAST ETERNAL FLAMES,
THE GOLDEN DUST OF PAST OLYMPIC GAMES. .

Applebee Academy is where my case begins.
Reunited a father with the beautiful Strokanov twins.
Here is the proof, your honor.

JUDGE WOODS
DNA tests positively prove these children have the same father. Furthermore, he is in the court today.

NURSE HEDGES
Doc Benson, do you remember a shot putter from Chernobyl named Svetlana Minkeva?

DOCTOR BENSON
Sweaty Mink? She was my muse.

NURSE HEDGES
The two of you conceived the night before she won the gold. Doctor, meet your beautiful daughters.

DOCTOR BENSON
YOWZA! YOWZA! YOWZA! Nostrovia!

STROKANOVS
Papa!!!
JUDGE WOODS
DNA tests also prove you sired both Gavin Barnes AND Maureen Gonzalas!

DOCTOR BENSON
Wow! I’m an all american international family man.

SHIPLEY
See Judge, everything’s on the up and up.

THATCHER
Objection!

JUDGE WOODS

IN THE BOOK OF RULES IT’S VERY CLEAR,
TO PLAY THE SPORT YOU WAIT -YOU WAY-WAY-WAY
WA-WA-WA-WA-WA WAIT A YEAR
OR ELSE YOU ARE A RINGER,
AND GIRL, YOU’RE ONE HUM DINGER,
OF A RINGER!

SHIPLEY
BUT SHE’S MY BABY’S DADDY’S BABY
FROM ANOTHER MOTHER
SO SHE’S MY STEP BABY DADDY’S DAUGHTER!

THATCHER
She’s a ringer!

SR. G.M/ BENSON/SHIPLEY

SHE’S HER BABY’S DADDY’S BABY
FROM ANOTHER MOTHER
HER STEP BABY DADDY’S DAUGHTER!

THATCHER
She’s a ringer!

ALL
HER BABY’S DADDY’S BABY
FROM ANOTHER MOTHER
HER MY STEP BABY DADDY’S DAUGHTER!

THATCHER
She’s a ringer!

JUDGE WOODS
Father! Mother! Sister! Brother! Now I’m a fan of the Brady Bunch but unless there’s a miracle in the next ten seconds, you will have to forfeit this game!

SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL
WAIT!! Wheel that bed over here.

(SISTER GEORGE MICHAEL waves the face towel over Victoria.)

OH, SACRED USED FACE TOWEL,
TOSSED TO ME AFTER THE MATCH
AGAINST CHRIS EVERETT ON SEPTEMBER 20TH, 1972,
I BESEECH YOU TO MEND THIS BROKEN CHILD,
OH, SACRED SHROUD OF-
