SCENE 1 Molly has finished her shift for the day and relaxes on the stoop. She muses about when she gets the chance to take a vacation, she'd like to go out west to a ranch, with wide open spaces and horses to ride on instead of walking. She imagines herself on the Lazy F Ranch, where she's greeted by a cowpoke (Big Bird) who points her toward the stable. The head wrangler (Oscar) turns her away (he's one of the bad guys) and suggests she do some walking instead. Back in reality, Molly remarks that she should go to the beach instead.
