SCENE 1
Telly & OSCAR both rubbed the magic lamp, which means they have to share their 3 wishes. By accident, they each wish their were switched around, & the Genie grants their wish. Ruthie tells him to reverse the wish, & he does so. He reports to Telly & OSCAR that they now have 1 wish left, which they’ll have to share, or else the Genie will have to return to his lamp, which he hates being inside. OSCAR, being a GROUCH, refuses to share his wish with Telly; this makes the Genie sad, then angry. OSCAR leaves for his TRASH CAN, & Ruthie tells the Genie to get his guitar - she has a plan.
