FIRST MAN—(Stamps his foot in anger) Boog, Boog! Remember, you are Boog Powell, the Baltimore Oriole first baseman. The most feared slugger in baseball! Now, all your information has been carefully programmed into you. Pay attention to me.
ROBOT—(Nodding thoughtfully) Right. Right, master. I am Boog Powell, the most feared slugger in baseball. And I'm all set, master.
SECOND MAN—Pssst! Here he comes.
(The three men jump out of sight behind the lockers as the door opens and Boog Powell walks in. He is looking at the floor, muttering to himself)
BOOG—Hmmm. That's funny. I thought I dropped it....
(The robot stoops and picks up the baseball glove and hands it to Powell. Boog nods his thanks and turns to go. Then he pauses for a long moment, staring out at the audience. Slowly, he pivots on his big feet and looks back at the robot)
BOOG—Wh...uhhh. Who are you?
BOOG—Hi there, yourself. My name is...uhhh. Well, my name is...wait a minute! I'm Boog Powell!
ROBOT—Not anymore, sir.
