02. Overture/Prologue.

{A single figure enters left and walks to center stage in front of the closed curtain. He is the stage manager. His name is Nichols, but any similarity between this character and any other persons living or dead is purely coincidental.}

* Nichols: :d: Attend the tale of Rodney Mod.
He was once considered a sitcom God.
He sent his siblings off the cliff on a bus,
And none of them since were heard of by us.
Except Rodney,
Rodney Mod,
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

:d: Rodney and Maude kept a modern home.
They raised two kids, and kept secrets unknown.
And everything would have been left that way,
If not for a cop by the name of Chimay.
Poor Rodney,
Rodney Mod,
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

:d: What happens next is anyone's guess.
Smart money says it ends in a blood-splattered mess.
Occasionally boorish and frequently lewd,
The next scene begins with the Family Feud.
For Rodney,
Rodney Mod,
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

(spoken) RODNEY! (loud whistle)

* {The music is eerily similar to the prelude of "Sweeney Todd."}

03. Act 1, Scene 1.

{the mcm family feud set}

JulieB: Contestants, please take your places. Stand by everyone. {pauses} Where's Richard? .... Where the Hell is Richard?
Richard: {enters left} Don't get your thong all tied up in a knot, Dear; here I am.
JulieB: For Christ sakes, Richard. Listen. There's something you need to know about the Mod Family.
Richard: Mod, Scmod. Look - you listen - this is what? The ten thousandth umpteenth episode of the MCM Family Feud .... I want to try something different today.
JulieB: Different? Richard, we're on the air in one minute!
Richard: Trust me, Julie, Doll, Babe ...

* Richard: (sing-songish) :d: Do you remember,
When I was Newkirk,
My career was in the sink.

:d: And now I'm a big star,
Driving a big car,
Take that! Colonel Klink.

:d: The game is nearing,
Contestants fearing,
Answers not so good.

:d: The audience applauding,
The announcer lauding,
The game is understood.

Announcer: :d: First we survey the public
Hide their answers up there
Then we face-off the question
But you'd better beware.
Because Richard might kiss you
And that drives you so insane.

LL Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.
Mod Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.

Richard: (spoken): Name something that washed up on Gilligan's Island.
Rod: A ferret?

Maude: ROD! :d: What are you thinking?
What were you drinking?
What's going on inside your head?

:d: Tell me what is it?
Are you an idiot?
Who can't please me in bed?

Announcer: :d: First we survey the public
Hide their answers up there
Then we face-off the question
But you'd better beware.
Because Richard might kiss you
And that drives you so insane.

LL Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.
Mod Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.

Richard: (spoken): Name something that a bachelor would have in his swank pad.
Rod: A ferret?

Modesta: Oh Mom! :d: Don't embarrass me,
Here on national TV.
It could have been ferret.

Vlade: :d: Dad, please don't feel blue.
I'm just so proud of you,
Since you slept with Mamie Van Doren.

Announcer: :d: First we survey the public
Hide their answers up there
Then we face-off the question
But you'd better beware.
Because Richard might kiss you
And that drives you so insane.

LL Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.
Mod Family: :d: Let's play the Family Feud again.

Richard: What can I say? They all love my Feud!

04. Act 1, Scene 2.

{the mcm family feud set}

Richard: Moving along, the score is Lotta Living Family 71, Mod Family 9, but the Mods still have a chance. The top 7 responses are on the board. Name a vulgar word that will be censored and translated by the message board editor.
Rod: (to himself) Should I say "Crumb"?

Maude: :d: He's thinking "Crumb"?
Modesta: :d: If he says "Crumb," I swear I'll die.
Vlade: :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Ann: :d: Oh crumb, I don't remember; oh crumb, I can't remember.
Rod: :d: Crumb! Should I say "Crumb"?
Maude: :d: Rod, you're an idiot, who does not satisfy me in bed.
Vlade: :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Modesta: :d: But what if he says "ferret?"
Ann: :d: Oh crumb, I don't remember; oh crumb, I can't remember.
Rod: :d: Yes, it could be "ferret," but what if I say "Crumb"?
Maude: :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Vlade: :d: Dad, you must say "crumb."
Modesta: :d: Ferret, ferret, ferret, ferret.
Ann: :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.

Rod: (spoken to Richard) Crumb.
Richard: :d: Show me "Crumb."
Image
Richard: The Mods win.

Rod: {celebrating} :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Maude: {celebrating} :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Anne: {celebrating} :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.
Vlade: {celebrating} :d: Crumb, crumb, crumb, crumb.

Modesta: (spoken) Crumb!

05. Act 1, Scene 3.

{the mod's modern home set}

Maude: I saw Lieutentant Chimay at the Supermarket yesterday.
Modesta: And I saw him at the mall.
Rod: Don't worry you two, I know what to do about Lieutentant Chimay.
Maude: Oh yeah, what?

* Rod: :d: Dear kindly Lieutenant Chimay, there's something you should know.
I've grown up underpriveledged, right here in Encino.
In a very small McMansion - now lets all do some math.
Six kids and seven bedrooms, and just one stinking bath.

Maude: :d: Yes, Lieutenant Chimay, Rod has done some bad things.
And not the least among them was to whack his siblings.
But it's not the architecture that made him this way.
He's corrupted because he's just not too feng shui.

Chorus: :d: Not feng shui, not feng shui.
Rod Mod is not too feng shui.
He's corrupted because he's just not too feng shui.

Vlade: (spoken) In my opinion this man does not need an architect at all.
Modesta: So take him to an Interior decorator.
Vlade: Which way.
Modesta: This way.

Rod: :d: Dear interior decorator, of this I must confess.
Despite much Herman Miller, my insides are still a mess.
My wall hangings are too centric, on walls that are too peach.
My tastes are too eclectic, and my designs not within reach.

Vlade: :d: It's not the architecture; it's not the furnishings
Modesta: :d: It's not the ambient lightening, nor other fashion things.
Ann: :d: It's not his modern lifestyle, nor martinis much too bland.
Maude: :d: It's not because his only action is checking his prostate gland.

Chorus: :d: Yes, Lieutenant Chimay, are you completely insane?
Vlade: :d: What kind of perpetrator has ferrets on the brain?
Chorus: :d: Lieutenant Chimay, what is Rod Mod to do?
Gee, Lieutenant Chimay .... crumb you!

06. Act 1, Scene 4.

{vlade's room set}

Vlade: (speaking as he's typing) I've been told it's way above average.
(speaking as he's reading) That sounds so nice. Do you want to hook up?
(typing) Are you kidding me, BLB? Yes! When?
(reading) One week from tonight!

* Vlade: (spoken) I call her "B. L. B." She calls me "Hot Ferret Guy."
And soon I might be giving her mink-laced handcuffs a little try.
On Ventura Boulevard,
We'll start our salacious tryst.
And before the night is over, I might become a sadomasochist.
But what if I get too nervous?
What if my manhood quits? What if she is an evil dominatrix!

Vlade: :d: Getting lucky with myspace tonight.
Getting lucky with myspace tonight.
Tonight if I get lucky, then tomorrow I will blog it.
Getting lucky with myspace tonight.

:d: B.L.B wouldn't rat me out to Dateline.
My myspace friends, just Tom and she.
B.L.B. wouldn't tie me up and leave me alone
When she's the one who instant messaged me.

:d: So, it's time to stop acting lovelorn.
It's time that this fellow be reborn.
Stick with me B.L.B., I'm the guy that you hooked up with.
Vlade Mod is getting lucky ....
Vlade Mod is getting lucky ....
Vlade Mod is getting lucky, without surfing for porn.

07. Act 1, Scene 5.

{parker center set}

Roxy: What's shaking, Lieutenant Chimay?
Chimay: I'm reopening the Rod Mod case. I saw him last week on the Internet - the MCM Family Feud, on Lotta Living.
Roxy: Lotta Living - right, I surf there all the time. Great site. (long pause) Rod Mod? You mean "The Brady Bunch"￾ case?
Chimay: That's the one. He looked scared, like something is about to crack. I ordered some wiretaps. Let's see what the tap drags in.
Roxy: Wiretaps? Based on new evidence - that he looked scared?
Chimay: I don't need any evidence. He's a terrorist, a really bad dude.
Roxy: Be careful, Lieutenant. You've been obsessed with this case for years, and that clouds your decision-making.
Chimay: Don't worry, Roxy. I know what I'm doing....

* Chimay: :d: Perps!
I don't know what's wrong with these perps today.
Perps!
We can trace their phone calls and their DNA.
Perps!
They are such felonious, lying, SOBs
Monster scandals, savage vandals, bastards.
And don't forget the misdemeanors.

Roxy: :d: Perps!
You can read Miranda till your face is blue.
Perps!
And they're released by judges just like you know who.
Chimay: (spoken) Rodney Mod!
Roxy: :d: On a technicality.
Chimay: :d: Why can't they be law abiding.
Roxy: :d: Just like Simpson OJ?
Chimay and Roxy: :d: What's the matter with perps today?

Chimay: :d: Perps! (motions to Roxy)
Roxy: :d: (dances a two-step, passing in front of Chimay)
Roxy: :d: Perps! (motions to Chimay)
Chimay: :d: (dances a two-step, passing in front of Roxy)
Chimay and Roxy: :d: (face to face, lock hands, and continue to dance)
:d: :d: :d: :d: :d: :d: :d: :d: :d: :d:
Roxy: :d: They're more than just the suspects.

Chimay: :d: Perps!
I'm going to trail old Rodney on a hunch.
Perps!
I know it was he who killed the Brady bunch.
Why do I need a warrant?
They just get in the way.
Chimay and Roxy: :d: What's the matter with perps today!

08. Act 1, Scene 6.

{the mod's modern home set}

Modesta: Mother!
Maude: No, Modesta. What kind of mother gives her child a Xanax?
Modesta: But I really need one. I've got three dates for the prom, and they'll be here any second.
Maude: Well you should have thought things through before you tried to break the Mod family record.
Modesta: Oh Mother! (pause) Mother? (contritely)
Maude: Yes.
Modesta: How did you handle it? What did you do when you had two dates at the same time?
Maude: Well, I ... I tried to think good thoughts. Listen ...

* Maude: :d: Shark fins on Caddies and mod motor scooters,
Short skirts and blouses that show off my hooters.
Kidney-shaped tables and lounge chairs by Eames
These are a few of my favorite themes.

Modesta: Let me try!

Modesta: :d: Eichlers and Cliff Mays with prefab wood sashes,
Historic mod buildings that are saved from the ashes.
Flat roofs on houses with long posts and beams.
These are a few of my favorite themes.

Maude: That's the way!

Maude: :d: Big guns and big ones from a spy that has em.
Threesomes that end with a public orgasm.
Shag paintings lining the home of my dreams.
These are a few of my favorite themes.

Maude: :d: When big box stores,
Ruin my mod hood,
Spawning remodel sin.
I simply remember my favorite themes,
And get liquored up on gin.

10. Reprise.

{A single figure in front of a closed crtain.}

Nichols: :d: Attend the tale of Rodney Mod.
What's next angers even the Marquis de Sade.
Like a waitress wearing the minimum pieces of flare.
The story goes downhill quite swiftly from here.
For Rodney,
Rodney Mod,
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

11. Act 2, Scene 1.

{senor fred set}

Alice: Hello Vlade.
Vlade: Alice?
Alice: Vlade.
Vlade: Alice!
Alice: Be honest, Vlade; you knew that I was "Black Lace and Bondage" all along, didn't you?
Vlade: Yes, but .... I don't think I can go through with this, Alice. Virtual sex is one thing, but this is so real.
Alice: Oh, Vlade!

* Alice: :d: Don't talk of fright,
Don't talk of fear,
If you're not queer,
Do me.

:d: Get down or your knees,
Do as you're told,
Put on the blindfold.
Do me.

:d: When I handcuff you to the bed,
What's going on, inside your head?
If I put you in too much pain,
Haven't you heard,
Just say the "safe word"￾ !

:d: Don't tell me lies,
Don't tell me what ain't,
Or I'll show you restraint,
Do me.
Do me.
Do as I say,
It's just for play,
Your threshold of pain will allow.
So, do me now!

* {The music is eerily similar to "Show Me" from "My Fair Lady." }

12. Act 2, Scene 2.

{rod's office set}

Rod: Unbelievable! {points to magazine photo}
MRU: What?
Rod: Someone put crown molding in this ferret house.
MRU: Will you stop it with the ferrets already? If we don't get a real commission soon, I'm out of here. I'd rather design McMansions than another ferret house.
Rod: We're the only modern ferret design build firm in LA. Where are people supposed to go for a post and beam ferret house if not us?
MRU: What is it about you and ferrets anyway?

* Rod: :d: When I was young, Pa said to me,
An architect is the thing to be.
I listened well and said "What the heck,"￾
I think I'll go to school and be an architect.
MRU: :d: He thought he'd go to school and be an architect.
Rod: :d: I listened so very carefully,
That now I am a scholar with my own degree.
MRU: :d: He listened so very carefully,
That now he is a scholar with his own degree.

Rod: :d: Then after school I joined a firm.
But the boss man was a toady worm.
My draft board and t-square were fine.
And I used them to create mid-century mod design.
MRU: :d: And he used them to create mid-century mod design.
Rod: :d: It was a steady job, but not much fun.
For all the clients wanted a Mc-Man-si-un.
MRU: :d: It was a steady job, but not much fun,
For all the clients wanted a Mc-Man-si-un.

Rod: :d: And then by chance, I bought a pet,
Not a dog or cat, but a fine ferret.
I built for him, a modern home,
With a window, and a red door, and a skylight dome.
MRU: :d: With a window, and a red door, and a skylight dome.
Rod: :d: So I quit my job, like the proletar-i-ats,
And built the first design firm just for fer-i-ats.
MRU: :d: He quit his job, like the proletar-i-ats,
And built the first design firm just for fer-i-ats.

13. Act 2, Scene 3.

{house near mt rushmore set}

Maude: Hold me, Chimay. (pause) No, not there.
Chimay: With Rod out of the picture, it will be just us from now on.
Maude: You'll take care of it then .... tonight .... On Mt Rushmore.
Chimay: Yes, Maude; that's the plan. But you know taking a man's life is a difficult thing. We must both be very careful.
Maude: Oh Chimay!

* Maude: :d: If you're ever going to kill him,
It had better be tonight.
With the presidents all watching
Turn out his light.

:d: At the Mt Rushmore cafeteria
While he's swallowing his lunch
Put a cap in his oblongata
Kill the one who killed the Brady bunch.

:d: Meglio stasera
Chimay go go go
or as the made guys say
Ucciderlo!

:d: For this desperate housewife,
Who will be watching your back,
Be a nice Mafioso
And start to whack.

:d: Travel north by northwest
And remove Rod Mod from my sight
For if again you want to schtup me,
It had better be tonight

:d: Meglio stasera
Chimay go go go
or as the made guys say
Ucciderlo!

14. Act 2, Scene 4.

{mt rushmore cafeteria set}

Rod: You shouldn't have followed me here.
Chimay: I've had enough of this charade! (pulls out gun and aims it at Rodney)
Rod: Don't do it, Chimay! I know about you and Maude, and it's okay - our marriage was over long ago.
Chimay: And what about the rest of the Brady's? Is that okay too? (pause) No - I thought not.
Rod: Go ahead and pull the trigger if you must, but there's something you need to know.
Chimay: What?
Rod: (breathing heavily) Chimay, I am your father.
Chimay: No!
Rod: You know it's true! Your mother and I were young, and our love was forbidden. After you were born our parents arranged for you to be adopted by a family in Tatooine. (turns to audience) It's near Fresno. (turns back to Chimay) But I always hoped that one day we could put all that behind us and become father and son.
Chimay: But Maude and I ...
Rod: No, Chimay - we did the Oedipus thing already in . Marcia/Maude is not your mother; Jan/Ann is!
Chimay: And so you killed the rest of the Brady's - why?
Rod: So that someday, Jan, you, and I could be a family .... Son.
Chimay: Dad!

* Rod: :d: I'd do anything,
For you Chimay, anything,
For you mean everything to me.

Chimay: :d: Would you make a fuss?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: :d: Would you swear and cuss?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: :d: Would you wear a truss?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: Drive your siblings off the cliff on a bus?
Rod: :d: Yes, I'd do that too!

Rod: :d: I'd do anything,
For you Chimay, anything,
For you mean everything to me.

Chimay: :d: Would you fly a kite?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: :d: Would you make things right?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: :d: Would you start a fight?
Rod: :d: Anything.
Chimay: Like ferrets on prom night?
Rod: :d: Yes, I'd do that too!

Rod: :d: I'll teach you everything,
That I know, everything,
A father and son is everything.
Chimay: :d: Everything.
Rod: :d: Yes, everything for you!

15. Act 2, Scene 5.

{the mod's modern home set}

{Vlade and Modesta are onstage as the curtain rises, then Rodney and Chimay enter, stage right}

Rod: Vlade. Modesta. I'd like you to meet your half-brother half-cousin, Chimay.
Modesta: Hello Chimay. (pause) Daddy, the ferret got stuck in the Eames chair again, and Vlade wouldn't help get him out.
Vlade: He wasn't stuck; he was just ferreting it out.
Rod: Have you seen Mom?

{Alice enters, stage left}

Alice: Mr. Mod, I'm so glad you're home! {Alice walks over to Rodney and gives him a welcome home kiss.}

{Maude enters, stage left}

Maude: So (pause) I see you didn't have the cojones I thought you had, Chimay.
Chimay: It turns out that I have Mod family cojones, Aunt Maude.
Maude: Oh, I see. I guess they were right; if you want something done right (pulls out a gun and aims it at Rodney)
Rod: Maude, no!
{Maude fires and Rodney falls dead}
Chimay: Aunt Maude, you have the right to remain silent.

:d: Bridge One :d:

* Chorus: :d: Rodney Mod, Ferret Guy,
Did you think that you could live out the lie?
Rodney Mod, Ferret Guy,
Did you think that you could live out the lie?

Alice: :d: Every time I look at you
I see just what I feared.
An architect for pets
And not enough clients that cared.
What good is a modern plan
So poorly engineered?
Don't you think the ferret thing is
Just a little bit too weird?
If you'd gone online
You could have reached all the Internets
LA in Y2K didn't need a firm for ferrets.

:d: Bridge Two :d:

* Vlade: :d: Well you should see my housekeeper Alice.
She's kind of kinky, but she is without malice.
She'll play games with your head
But she's killer-diller in bed
And when she's finished, she cleans up the palace.

:d: Get a dose of her velvet-lined tether.
She knows how to use it in all kinds of weather.
It's so hard to explain
But I'm in love with the pain
Yes, you should see her in her black lace and leather.

:d: Bridge Three :d:

* Maude: Modesta, are those Frankie's, Sammy's and Dino's rings you're wearing?
Modesta: Uh, huh.
Alice: By the way, where did you meet them?
Modesta: :d: I met them at a Valley mall
They offered me a hot dog on a stick - you get the picture
Maude and Alice: Yes, we see.
Modesta: That's when I fell for the leaders of the rat pack.
(loud scooter sounds)

:d: Bridge Four :d:

Vlade: Ladies and gentlemen .... The return of the Eichler people!

Image {they enter, stage left and right}

Eichler People: :d: Modcom, Modcom Man.
I want to be a Modcom man.
Modcom, Modcom Man.
I've got to be a Modcom.

:d: Every man and woman wants to be a Modcom man
To have the kind of home that's always in demand
Post and beam construction, go cats go
Linoleum in the kitchen, make those counters glow
That gent out in the carport, he's a Modcom Man
Living the modern lifestyle that a Modcom can

:d: Bridge Five :d:

* Maude: : d: Oh yeah, it was like lightning,
everybody was frightening.
And the music was soothing,
and they all started grooving

:d: And then my lover on the floor
Said "Girl, I want more,
You're the world's greatest exhibitionist."
But the owner of the store said
"You two, get up off the floor,"
so I grabbed him by his naughty bits.
A modern blitz, a modern blitz, a modern blitz

:d: Bridge Six:d:

Chimay: (sing-songish) NOW WAIT A MINUTE!
Chimay :d: You know you make me wanna
Chorus: Shout!
Chimay: Kick my heels up and
Chorus: Shout!
Chimay: Throw my hands up and
Chorus: Shout!
Chimay: Throw my head back and
Chorus: Shout!
Chimay: Come on now
Chimay: Don't forget to say you will
Don't forget to say
Yeah, yeah, yeah

:d: Bridge Seven :d:

{Rodney is lifted off the ground by guide wires and is suspended mid-air}

Rod: :d: And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and every highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it the Mod way.

:d: Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

:d: I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it the Mod way.

:d: Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it the Mod way!

{curtain closes}

Vlade: (as the curtain falls) The blue bus is calling us.

16. Reprise.

{A single figure in front of a closed curtain.}

Nichols: :d: Attend the tale of Rodney Mod.
If you've gotten this far, then it's you that's odd.
Musically spamming all over the board,
His fatal attraction could not be ignored.
Not Rodney,
Rodney Mod.
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

:d: And to you the patrons of Lotta Living,
I beg your indulgence and your forgiving,
For writing and music that's often bizarre,
This time, I think, Sky has gone too far.
With Rodney,
Rodney Mod.
Rodney Mod.
The ferret architect of the City of Angels.

(loud whistle)
