You're Invaluable ['You're in' skit series part 2]

Performance: (postponed) Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church Online service - June 13, 2020


Guide 1 and Lost 3 fluently speak a mutual language other than English, labeled as Spanish in this script.

Spanish parts can optionally be subtitled for the audience

 

[The two Guides stand waiting, then Lost 1 enters and approaches Guide 1 while holding a map, looking confused]

Lost 1: Hello, can you help me find the way?

Guide 1: [Spanish] What? I can’t understand you.

Lost 1: Can you help me?

Guide 1: [Spanish] Sorry, I don’t’ know what you are saying.

Guide 2:  Hi there, do you need help?

Lost 1: Oh wonderful, yes, can you help me find the way?

Guide 2: Sure, I know the way. Go down there and you will find what you’re looking for.

Lost 1: Thank you so much! I’m so glad you could help me.

Guide 2: No problem.

Guide 1: [Spanish] Goodbye, sorry I cannot help you.

 

[Lost 2 enters with a map and approaches Guide 1]

Lost 2: Hello, I cannot find the way, can you help me?

Guide 1: [Spanish] What? I can’t understand you.

Lost 1: Can you help me?

Guide 1: [Spanish] Sorry, I don’t’ know what you are saying.

Guide 2:  Hi there, do you need help?

Lost 1: Oh, yes please, I’m lost, can you help me find the way?

Guide 2: Sure, I can help you. It’s kind of tricky, follow me and I’ll help you find the way.

Lost 1: Thank you so much! I’m so glad you could help me.

Guide 2: No problem, so glad I could be here to help you.

(Guide 2 and Lost 2 leave)

Guide 1: [Spanish] Goodbye, sorry I cannot help you.

 

Guide 1 is discouraged by now, standing alone. Lost 3 enters with map and approaches Guide 1  

Lost 3: [tries speaking in broken English] Hello, help find way?

Guide 1: [Spanish] I can’t understand you. I am of no use to you. You need to find someone else. I am sorry.

Lost 3: [Spanish] You speak ‘Spanish’??!!

Guide 1: [Spanish] What?? Yes, Yes, I speak [Spanish].

Lost 3:  [Spanish] Oh, great, great! I have been looking everywhere and NOBODY could help me. You are the only one! I’m lost, please help me find the way?

Guide 1: [Spanish] Sure, I can help you find the way. It’s kind of tricky, let me take you there.

Lost 3: [Spanish] Thank you so much! I’m so glad you can help me. I’d be forever lost without you.

Guide 1: [chuffed at feeling useful] [Spanish] I’m so glad I can help.
