SCENE 2
OSCAR panics in the waiting room, when WORMologist Dr. Mudd (Hugh Franklin) calls them into the examination room. He checks SLIMEY’s tiny thermometer, then his tiny x-ray. He concludes the WORM has no fever or internal injury, but further examination shows SLIMEY as sprained the middle of his body. Dr. Mudd bandages him up & prescribes SLIMEY not do any movement until he’s healed, as well as ordering him not to jump from any more planes. As Oscar tells SLIMEY he’s "grounded," Maria tells Dr. Mudd to send Oscar the bill.

TELLY MONSTER comes by to see how SLIMEY is & OSCAR chews him out for ignoring the sign. TELLY didn’t even notice it & thinks it’s too small for the average person to read.

TELLY finally reads the word just as OSCAR takes the sign away. TELLY is distraught now, but OSCAR reapplies the sign when he sees how bothersome TELLY is becoming. TELLY is finally able to read the whole sign now, but he doesn’t know what "disturb" means. Olivia announces the sponsors.
