Transcript: Peace and Quiet
An animation shows traffic travelling through a city. People are gathered outside houses and a pizza parlour. A pink school bus scatters stars as it passes by a grassy hill.
Text reads, “TVO kids and ABC presents”.
Children and their pets run to the hill and climb onto the title which they read, BIG WORDS, SMALL STORIES.
A person reads the episode title.
They read, PEACE AND QUIET.
Text reads, written by Julie Sam-Yue. Chris and Crat sit beside each other on yoga mats. In his bedroom, Chris sits crossed legged on a blue yoga mat with his eyes closed. Crat runs in.
Crat says, CRIS! THE DOG NEXT DOOR
SAID SHE WAS BETTER
AT TRAMPOLINE BOUNCING THAN ME!
I SHOWED HER WHO'S BOSS!
Crat jumps up and down.
He says, EHH, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Chris opens his eyes. .
He says, MEDITATING.
Crat asks, WHY?!
Chris says, IT HELPS ME RELAX.
I FOUND AN APP THAT SHOWS YOU
HOW TO MEDITATE. TRY IT WITH ME.
Chris unrolls a pink yoga mat beside him and puts a tablet in front of the mats.
Crat says, OOH! I COULD USE A BREAK!
Crat sits beside Chris on the pink yoga mat.
A blond woman in the meditation app says, LET US BEGIN
BY FOCUSING ON OUR BREATH.
The woman closes her eyes.
She says, TAKE A DEEP BREATH IN...
Crat closes his eyes and takes a deep breath in. Chris frowns at Crat.
The woman in the app says, ...AND OUT.
FEEL THE AIR
FLOWING IN THROUGH YOUR NOSE...
Crat lets out a relaxed purr. Chris smiles and closes his eyes. Both Crat and Chris look relaxed.
(Soft music plays)
A person says, IT IS SO POSSIBLE!
Crat and Chris’s eyes snap open.
A person says, IT'S JUST A THING
THAT PEOPLE SAY.
Christy says, HOW CAN THE MOON
BE MADE OF CHEESE?
Christy holds a chunk of cheese.
Chrissy says, WHAT'S CHEESE MADE OF? MILK!
Chrissy holds up a glass of milk.
She says, AND WHERE ARE WE?
THE MILKY WAY GALAXY!
Chrissy and Christy continue to argue.
Chris asks, HOW CAN WE MEDITATE
WHEN THEY'RE BEING SO... SO...
4 candy-like creatures, Sprinkle Fairy’s helpers, the sprinklers, pop up.
They say, LOQUACIOUS!
A pink bus drives by.
The Sprinkle Fairy appears and says, LOQUACIOUS MEANS VERY, VERY
YOU KNOW, TALKING A LOT!
LIKE HOW CHRISSY AND CHRISTY
ARE GOING ON AND ON
ABOUT WHETHER THE MOON
CAN BE MADE OF CHEESE.
Chrissy says, IT MAKES TOTAL SENSE!
Chris plugs his ears.
Chrissy says, YOU SEE
IN SPACE THERE'S NO OXYGEN SO...
Crat scratch’s the back of his neck.
Sprinkle Fairy says, I'D LOVE TO STAY AND CHAT
BUT I'M OFF TO SEE DR DOLITTLE.
HE LOVES TO GOSSIP.
Sprinkle Fairy wears headphones and flies away.
Chrissy says, …I GUESS IF THE MOON
WAS MADE OF CHEESE, IT WOULD…
Crat says, LET'S GO MEDITATE
Chrissy and Christy’s chatter continues. An orange and a blue sprinkler roll up their own yoga mat and leave with Chris and Crat. They all unroll their mats in a kitchen and set up the tablet.
The woman from the app says, LISTEN TO THE WORLD
The sprinklers meditate.
The woman says, ..BIRDS CHIRPING...
THE WIND IN THE GR—
A person interrupts saying, THAT WAS THE WACKIEST CAR
WE'VE EVER SOLD!
Chris’ dad says, TEN METERS OF MOTOR MADNESS!
Crat says, UGH, ONCE YOUR MOM AND DAD
..START TALKING ABOUT CARS,
THEY DON'T STOP!
CARS MAKE THEM
Chris says, DAD, WE'RE TRYING TO
Crat holds oven mittens over their ears.
Dad says, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE TIME
I WAS MEDITATING IN A CAR.
He says, OH, BOY!
Frowning, Chris and Crat leave the kitchen with their yoga mats.
Chris’ mom says, OH YES, THAT'S A GREAT STORY!
The sprinkler’s meditation is interrupted. Elsewhere, a boy with curly hair plays with an airplane.
A person says, OH DARLINGS, YOU'RE MORE THAN
WELCOME TO MEDITATE HERE.
Chris and Crat join the boy with curly hair.
Chris says, THANKS. EVERYONE AT HOME
WON'T STOP TALKING.
The woman, Aunt Delilah, says, YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
IT'S QUIET HERE
BECAUSE I'M PRACTICING
MY ONE-WOMAN PLAY
CALLED PEACE AND QUIET.
Chris and Crat let out a sigh of relief. They close their eyes.
(Soft music plays)
Aunt Delilah says, OH, WHAT I
WOULD DO FOR SOME PEACE!
A BREAK FROM THE NOISE
OF MODERN LIFE!
Aunt Delilah gestures dramatically.
Crat asks, SHOULD WE LEAVE?
Chris says, NO. WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF
PLACES TO GO.
LET'S FOCUS EXTRA HARD.
Aunt Delilah dramatically says, I ASK YOU,
IS IT TOO MUCH TO DREAM
OF A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET?!
Crat and Chris look at each other. They close their eyes and take deep breaths.
(Soft music plays)
Aunt Delilah says, THE TRUCKS GO VROOM, VROOM
AND HONK THEIR HORNS. I LONG FOR
THE SONG OF THE BIRDS!
Crat and Chris cover their ears with pillows.
Aunt Delilah says, CUCKOO!
Chris lets out an annoyed sigh.
He says, WHY IS EVERYONE
BEING SO LOQUACIOUS TODAY?!
Chris sighs and grabs his yoga mat and tablet. He and Crat drag their yoga mats out of the room. Aunt Delilah scratches her head and shrugs. The sprinklers float after Chris and Crat. Chris and Crat stand outside Grandpa Rex’s apartment.
Chris says, YOU'RE OUR LAST HOPE. WE'RE
TRYING TO MEDITATE AND EVERYON--
Grandpa Rex says, SHH. SAY NO MORE.
Chris and Crat smile and follow Grandpa Rex inside. They unroll their yoga mats on a balcony beside Grandpa Rex.
Grandpa Rex says, TOO MUCH TALK
WON'T BE A PROBLEM WITH ME.
Crat and Chris sit on their yoga mats and close their eyes. They exhale, and breathe in deeply as they meditate.
(Soft music plays)
The sprinklers meditate. One sprinkler bumps into the other and giggles.
Chris opens his eyes and says, WOW...ALL THAT DEEP BREATHING!
I FEEL SO CALM.
Crat says, IT'S LIKE WHEN I DO A TRAMPOLINE
BOUNCE AND FLY IN THE AIR!
Crat jumps up and down while meowing groovily. Grandpa Rex clears his throat.
Chris says, OH! NOW WE ARE BEING
Chris and Crat laugh.
