C.S.#1: I’ve just got to find THE SOUND. I’ve got to!
(C.S.#2 comes on stage, carrying his noisemaker)
C.S.#1: Have you got THE SOUND?
C.S.#2: Sure. (he demonstrates sound)
C.S.#1: No, that’s not the right sound. That’s not it at all.

C.S.#1 rejects all sounds. suddenly, there is the sound of a triangle or dinner bell being rung
offstage, or a boy wearing a cook’s hat enters ringing the triangle.)

C.S.#1: Why, it’s the sound that’s calling me to dinner. What better sound than that?
