GE 1996-7 Season 3 Episode 10: Complete Script
Note: this is not a transcript, but a working draft of the script, so there may be differences in the aired version.
	INTRO AND THEME MUSIC.

PAUL:	We first heard about the 
	Miracle of Economology some 20 
	years ago.  Then, it seemed 
	little more than another half-
	baked, feel-good, self-help 
	scheme.  

	The basic tenets of 
	economology as voiced by its 
	founder R. Bennet Manning were 
	met by widespread ridicule.  
	
	The elimination of deficit 
	financing, sexual abstinence, 
	zero inflation, saying no to 
	drugs, removing the obstacles 
	to unlimited bank profits, and 
	so on. 
	
	How did these strange fiscal 
	notions and lifestyle choices 
	so quickly become part of 
	common wisdom and public 
	policy ?  Did the economolgy 
	movement infiltrate the 
	spheres of influence?  
	
	The answer we know now, with 
	economology out of the closet 
	is ... and how!  		
	
	Economology and its 
	shareholders dispute recent 
	assertions that they are a 
	cult.  They claim to be no 
	more dangerous than the Rotary 
	Club or Aum Shinri Kyo.

	The Miracle is extending its 
	spiritual reach over all of 
	us.  However, the movement is 
	not open to public membership.  
	It is an invitation-only faith 
	and service organization.  

	Well, not long after this show 
	got picked up by the CBC, and 
	I, your humble host, achieved 
	a modicum of respectabilty, my 
	invitation ďto experience the 
	MiracleĒ arrived.  Included 
	was a day-pass to 
	Economologyís annual 
	ďshareholdersí retreatĒ, 
	Miracle `96, held this year at 
	the Hotel Palmer Hotel.

	The story you are about to 
	hear -- a hard hitting, fact 
	based piece -- would not seem 
	to be within the purview of 
	this cultural magazine.  More 
	the stuff of BCNís 
	investigative program, Wearing 
	the Wire.  Unfortunately, the 
	W the W piece became 
	compromised by the exposure of 
	its covert agent.  This past 
	Tuesday, I was summoned to 
	fill the breach.

SFX:	WEARING THE WIRE LABS.

PAUL:	Jerome, look, donít get me 
	wrong.  Itís not that I donít 
	want to work with you guys, 
	itís just that, well, 
	journalism isnít my thing.
	
JEROME:	Youíre telling me.

PAUL:	I just feel uncomfortable.

JEROME:	So do I, so itís settled, 
	then.

PAUL:	O.k.  Good.

ISH:	Paul, Jerome.

BOTH:	Heh, Ish.

ISH:	Now, you two wanted to see me 
	about something?

PAUL:	Ish, look, I donít have 
	anything against the team at 
	Wearing the Wire, but I feel 
	awkward doing investigative 
	work.  Iím not a journalist, 
	Iím a writer.

ISH:	I canít believe you arenít 
	capable of working together.

JEROME:	Try.

ISH:	You might as well get used to 
	it anyway, boys, because itís 
	the wave of the future.  Arts, 
	entertainment, news, itís all 
	going to be the same big mumbo 
	jumbo soon.  Integration, 
	multi-skilling ... and those 
	who show they have a spirit of 
	collaboration might keep their 
	jobs.

JEROME:	Ish, permission to speak?

ISH:	(sigh) Granted

JEROME:	Paulís a coward --no offense, 
	Paul.

PAUL:	None taken.

JEROME:	... he talks to much.

PAUL:	Yatta, yatta, yatta.

JEROME:	And look at the size of him: 
	he canít go undercover 
	effectively.

ISH:	Jerome, youíre too close to 
	the story.

JEROME:	Thatís not true.

ISH:	Anyway, your coverís blown.

JEROME:	Dammit, Ish.  I want these 
	guys.  You owe me this story.  

ISH:	Youíll get the story.  But 
	Paulís perfect.  The 
	Economology people are trying 
	to recruit media celebrities 
	like Paul...

JEROME:	Oh, gimme a break.  Heís not a 
	celebrity.

ISH:	Theyíve officially invited him 
	to Miracle Ď96 -- special 
	guest.  So he doesnít have to 
	go undercover at all, he just 
	has to be himself.

JEROME:	All right, but Iím not 
	responsible.  I want that on 
	the record.

ISH:	Paul, you look like youíre 
	going to be sick.  Are you a 
	man or a--

PAUL:	I donít see why I have to put 
	my ass on the line here.  I 
	mean, you donít trifle with 
	the economologists.  Theyíve 
	got followers at the highest 
	levels of government, banking, 
	business, religion, the courts 
	--  youíve heard the stories 
	about the restraint rituals, 
	the personal right-sizing.  Do 
	I really have to put myself at 
	risk for the station twice 
	over?  Come on!  You get on 
	the CBC man, everyone wants a 
	piece of you.

ISH:	You think the Moth Interviews 
	is an onerous burden ?  Howíd 
	you like the weekend 
	lifestyles show, too -- with 
	that wonderful new 3 hour 
	format -- ďhost boy ?Ē  Now, 
	have we reached an 
	understanding?

PAUL AND JEROME:	(GRUMBLE, GRUMBLE)

ISH:	(leaving the room) Good luck.

PAUL:	Letís get on with it, then.  
	What do you have in the way of 
	concealed mics?

JEROME:	Well, weíve got this new 
	French mic.

PAUL:	Put that away!!!

JEROME:	What?

PAUL:	Well, years ago, I was driving 
	on the prairies, and I, well, 
	I was abducted by aliens and 
	... probed.

JEROME:	Really?

PAUL:	Truly.  They had two kinds of 
	probes.

JEROME:	Ya?

PAUL:	Yes, my friend, a wee little 
	one .... and a great huge one.

JEROME:	Thereís a new anatomical 
	model. Iím wearing it now.

PAUL:	Where?  Oh I see ...

JEROME:	Argghhhh!.

PAUL:	Sorry.

JEROME:	Itís here, the tip of my nose, 
	itís a very discreet 
	prosthetic. 

SFX:	MIC SOUNDS.

PAUL:	Thatís incredible.

JEROME:	Almost invisible.

PAUL:	Super thin.

JEROME:	High sensitivity all the way. 
	Itís on now.

PAUL:	Wait a minute-- all this has 
	been recorded?

JEROME:	It should have been.  Hey!

HEAVY SMACK AND MIC HANDLING 
NOISE, FOLLOWED BY BRIEF 
SILENCE

JEROME:	Lighten up.

PAUL:	Iím sure Ish will feel the 
	same way.

JEROME:	You think he wasnít recording 
	us?  Donít be so naive, Paul.  

	Now at the economology 
	seminar, you might have be 
	even more discreet

PAUL:	What do you mean?

JEROME:	You still donít get it, do 
	you.  These people have the 
	most alert security systems in 
	the world.  Theyíre hard on 
	dissidents, and merciless on 
	spies.  If they find a 
	microphone on you ...
	
PAUL:	Well, where do you think is 
	the best place to hide it ?

JEROME:	The safest place?

PAUL:	(gulp)

SFX:	TAPE ENDS ABRUPTLY.

SCENE 2

HOTEL PALMER HOTEL.  BUSY 
CONVENTION RECEPTION AREA, BUT 
ALL RATHER HIGH-TONE.

PAUL:	Yes, my name is Paul Moth.?  I 
	believe Iím on the guest list.  
	Itís Moth, M-O-T-H.
	
MAN:	Oh, yes, wonderful.  (shouting 
	into room)  Oh, Shelley, Paul 
	Moth is here.

SHELLEY:	Paul.  Iím Shelley Ricardo.  
	Iíll be your econo-medium for 
	today.

PAUL:	Youíre with public relations?

SHELLEY:	Well, I mediate between the 
	Miracle of Economology and the 
	world in many ways.

PAUL:	Iíll bet you do.  This is 
	quite a swank event.  I 
	havenít seen so many limos 
	since Studio 54, (to himself) 
	I wonder how Paul Reubans is 
	making out..

SHELLEY:	Well, weíre very glad you 
	could make it.

PAUL:	Oh ya, right, little old me.

SHELLEY:	Weíve identified you as a 
	media personality with a 
	rising profile.

PAUL:	Tell it to my agent. 

SHELLEY:	But, you know, Paul, I sense 
	youíre a little unfulfilled, 
	spiritually and financially.

PAUL:	For starters.

SHELLEY:	Thatís where we at the Miracle of 
	Economology can turn your life 
	around -- emotionally, fiscally, 
	kinetically.

PAUL:	That certainly would be a 
	miracle.  Heh -- it is, thatís 
	Mulroney rubbing elbows with 
	Paul Martin -- I always 
	suspected they were into that.  
	And ... ya, swinginí Frank 
	Moores -- (catches his eye)  
	Hi, Frank!  Ya, good to see 
	you, too.  Keep the chins up, 
	buddy.  Wait, I know the guy 
	Frankís talking to -- thatís 
	Hardial Baines.

SHELLEY:	Youíre a little sceptical of 
	the Miracle of Economology, 
	arenít you?

PAUL:	I wouldnít say that.  I have 
	an open mind, if you know what 
	I mean?

SHELLEY:	Great attitude.

PAUL:	Heh, look, itís the Iron Lady!

SHELLEY:	Oh, Paul, someone was asking 
	after you especially -- I 
	promised Iíd introduce you.  
	(calling) Carlos!  Carlos, 
	this is Paul Moth.  Paul, 
	Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
	
SALINAS:	Paul Moth.  At last, we meet.

PAUL:	Carlos Salinas?!  The singer?! 
	Wow!

SHELLEY:	(half-whisper) No, Mr. Salinas 
	was the President of Mexico.

PAUL:	Oh, Iím a little out of touch 
	with that scene.

CARLOS:	Paul Moth!!  The great 
	maestro! You see, Shelley, 
	this man is the greatest 	
	living auteur of the Mexican 
	cinema!

SHELLEY:	Really?!  I didnít know about 
	this.

PAUL:	How embarassing.  Ya, I 
	directed a few Mexican films 
	back in the Ď80ís.  The Pepito 
	El Grande series -- sort of 
	the Hispanic worldís Lassie.

SHELLEY:	A man of many talents.

PAUL:	Oye, Carlitos, nadie aqui sabe 
	lo del cine mexicano...

SALINAS:	Perro pequeno -- amor grande!

PAUL:	Y tampoco sabe de eso!

SALINAS:	Entiendo, compa.

PAUL:	Anyway, nice meeting you.  
	Enjoy the seminar.

SHELLEY:	Now, I wonít keep you-- you 
	should really catch as much of 
	R. Bennettís ďEconomology is 
	DestinyĒ talk as you can. I 
	know youíll find it 
	inspirational.  Hereís a 
	programme - (getting very 
	warm) but I do have a special 
	invitation for you to attend 
	an intimate gathering with me 
	and a select group at 8:00.  
	Room 412.  Hereís the key.  
	Please come.  I think youíll 
	find it most rewarding.
	
PAUL:	I wouldnít dream of missing 
	it.

SHELLEY:	Until 8, then (throaty laugh 
	as she leaves).

PAUL:	(throaty laugh, then to 
	himself)  Incredible.  (to 
	Jerome)  Testing... testing...  
	Did you hear that, Jerome?   
	As soon as they think you work 
	in film, theyíre all over you.  
	I should play that card more 
	often.  Oh, here comes 
	Kathleen Hanrahan, got to go.

KATHLEEN:	Paul!  What a pleasant 
	surprise.

PAUL:	Oh, hi, Kathleen.  I thought I 
	might run into you here.

KATHLEEN:	Are you kidding?  R. Bennett 
	Manning in person: I wouldnít 
	miss this for the world. You 
	wonít regret this, Paul.  
	Economologyís changed my life.  
	Weíre late.  Letís get in 
	there -- I hope we can still 
	get a seat.

PAUL:	Have you taken a look at this 
	programme?

KATHLEEN:	I browsed through it.

PAUL:	Some of these workshops ... 
	ďOff-world opportunitiesĒ;  
	ďChild Labour and Your 
	PortfolioĒ;  ďAfrica 
	IncorporatedĒ;  ďThe Hidden 
	Finger and How to Give It to 
	the WorkersĒ  ...  Bizarre...
	
KATHLEEN:	Thereís something for 
	everyone.  Look itís already 
	started!  Come on!

CROSS FADE AMBIENCE TO INTERIOR (possible 
break)
FIND R. BENNETT mid speech.

PAUL:	Excuse me, excuse me ...

KATH:	Look, here are some seats.

PAUL:	Excuse me, oh god, sorry ...

MANNING:	... We are awakening the giant 
	within the economy, by just 
	following a few very easy, 
	basic steps.  People are 
	always saying to me, RB, how 
	do we stimulate the economy.  
	To answer their desperate need 
	for an answer, twenty years 
	ago I developed my Miracle of 
	Economology ďstimulator 
	simulatorĒ, and I was able to 
	offer scientific proof to a 
	sceptical bunch of soft 
	liberals the truth of the 
	Economology.
	
	Here it is -- just watch the 
	screen.  Spending: thatís how 
	the economy is stimulated, and 
	when it is properly 
	stimulated, spending just 
	never stops.  We often feel 
	guilty spending money we donít 
	have.  But what we are doing 
	is a public service, we are 
	all getting the economy going.  
	And spending is buying, 
	getting more stuff, that makes 
	you feel good.  DONíT WE ALL 
	WANT MORE STUFF?

SFX:	Crowd cheers.

RB:	Ya, you feel good, you are 
	stimulating the economy, and the 
	economy stimulates you in return, 
	stimulates your nodal juices!  
	Now, letís go back to the three 
	points on the economology 
	triangle. The Economy, The Nodal 
	Juices, The Mind/Spirit.  Yes 
	friends.  Liquality, Vitality, 
	Tranquility.  Donít be afraid to 
	spend, to stimulate the economy 
	and thus your nodal juices, DONíT 
	BE AFRAID OF THE TRANQUILITY THAT 
	RESULTS FROM HAVING MORE THINGS!
	

SFX:	Cheers.

RB:	You know, twenty years ago, we 
	here at the Miracle started asking 
	people to believe in our 
	treatments -- and there were a lot 
	of doubts -- thatís natural.  We 
	said, tighten your belts to 
	discipline the lines leading from 
	the intestines to the money 
	supply.  A lot of people said, RB, 
	Iím getting a trickle down effect 
	alright, but itís awfully painful. 
	And it was, at first.  But then it 
	started being fun, and that 
	trickle become a pleasurable flow.  
	Does that tight belt feel good 
	now?

CROWD:	CHEERS.

RB:	But there is a threat to your 
	tranquility and it is in the form 
	of the reductive pulse of 
	government spending.  Weíll visit 
	the evil of taxation in our next 
	session.  Now, enjoy phase one of 
	Miracle Ď96 -- indulge and 
	remember, you deserve it because 
	you are the beautiful people.

SFX:	THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE AND CHEERS.

MC:	R.  Bennet Manning, ladies and 
	gentlemen.  Now please join me in 
	welcoming .. 

SFX:	Band starts up underneath.

KATHLEEN:	That man should be in charge 
	of my life.

PAUL: 	But, Kathleen, last week on 
	the show you were on about how 
	government cutbacks were 
	destroying the arts.  Now 
	youíre a total believer in a 
	guy whoís demonizing public 
	spending as some sort of 
	reductive pulse, whatever the 
	hell that means.
	
KATH:	Sorry, Paul, I just donít see that 
	thereís any contradiction.  Youíll 
	see after the next session.

PAUL:	Ya sure, well if youíll excuse me 
	Kathleen Iíve got a rare 
	opportunity for some casual sex 
	that I simply must pursue.

SFX:	Band comes up into radio and 
after 3:30 crosses to distant 
ambieence as ...PAUL WALKING 
DOWN CORRIDOR OUTSIDE HOTEL 
ROOMS.

VOX;	Ocupe, libre, ocupe, libre, 
	libre, libre, ocupe.....

PAUL:	(exuding sexual tension and 
	excitement)  Oooh, all right, 
	here we go.  I probably should 
	have picked up a condom.  I 
	havenít done anything like 
	this since 1981.  Sounds like 
	itís going to be a group 
	thing...   O.k.,  Rooooom f-f-
	four-ttwelve...

SFX:	KEY BEING JANGLED NERVOUSLY IN 
LOCK.  DOOR OPENS ON FIVE OR 
SIX PEOPLE IN A ROOM.

SHELLEY:	Right on time, Paul, weíre 
	just about to get started.

PAUL:	Doesnít look like it.

SHELLEY:	Have you ever attended a 
	seance before?

PAUL:	A seance?  I thought ...

SHELLEY;	Just have a seat at the table.

PAUL:	All right.  (to man beside 
	him)  Hi, Paul Moth.

BOUDREAU:	Hello, Ormand Boudreau.  Iíd 
	like to have a word with you, 
	perhaps later.  You see, the 
	Dept. of Tourism is looking 
	for a spokesman for the Cabot 
	500 year, and seeing as you 
	have a national show now, we 
	thought you might be 
	interested in becoming Mr. 
	500.

SHELLEY:	(begins talking in b.g., as 
	room gradually hushes)  O.k., 
	now Iíll need your 
	concentration.  Everyone join 
	hands, and all at once, start 
	to ....etc...

PAUL:	Well, I donít know what to 
	say.  Sounds great.  Iíve been 
	a spokesman for the chemical 
	industry in the past, so I 
	know the ropes...

ORMAND:	Great.  Weíll talk.

SHELLEY:	(all of the following can be 
	heard)  Everyone must begin 
	investing their mentality in 
	the neuric fluids of the mind. 
	Decentralize your thoughts... 
	harmonize your kinetic pulses 
	.... think vitality, 
	liquality, tranquility ... the 
	hidden hand will take us... 
	the hidden hand behind the 
	wealth of all nations will 
	lead us to transcendence ... 

MUSIC: 	A GLASS HARMONICA THINGY 
STARTS TO SOUND.

SHELLEY:	...we seek a spontaneous 
	identity of interests ... Now, 
	reduce your thoughts ... re-
	form them ... think fair work 
	fair work fair work fare 
	workfare workfare ...
	
PAUL:	This is kind of fun... I feel 
	so ... malleable ...

SHELLEY:	Hidden hand, guide us to the 
	realm of higher truth and 
	life...  (trance voice 
	modulating towards speaking in 
	tongues)  G-A-T-T / E-E-C/ I-
	M-F/ N-A-F-T-A/ I-T-T...

WOMAN:	(screams, then)  The hidden 
	hand just grabbed my leg!

PAUL:	Oh, sorry, that was me...

BOUDREAU:	Ssshhh!

SFX:	SPIRIT RAPPING ON TABLE.

PAUL:	Iíll get it.

BOUDREAU:	No, sshh, itís the door to 
	another world. Who is it?

KARL MARX:	(channelled through Shelley)  
	Karl Marx.

COLLECTIVE GASP.

BOUDREAU:	Well, you have some explaining 
	to do.

MARX:	I was wrong about the labour 
	theory of value.  I failed to 
	incorporate the miraculous 
	tripartite equation of 
	vitality-tranquility-liquality 
	into the dialectical model.
	
PAUL:	Oh boy, this is great....  
	Now, K-karl, while youíre on 
	the line here, was Lukacs 
	right in reading Hegelian 
	categories into your mature 
	work, or did you really scrap 
	those once and for all before 
	you wrote Capital?

MARX:	I canít remember.  Ask Engels 
	-- he kept the books.

PAUL:	O.k., forget it.  Now, I need 
	some advice.  Youíre like the 
	foremost expert on commodity 
	fetishism, which, you know, 
	you said was bad, right, and I 
	agree, except that I have this 
	fetish, but itís just for one 
	commodity in particular, and I 
	w--....

SHELLEY:	(putting on an exhausted act) 
	No, thatís it, Iíve lost him, 
	Iím afraid.

PAUL:	Damn.

BOUDREAU:	Whyíd you have to hound him 
	with your stupid questions?

SHELLEY:	The point is, I think, that 
	even Karl Marx has seen the 
	error of his ways and endorsed 
	the truth of Economology.
	
	Hidden hand, guide us through 
	the realm of transcendent ... 
	unh ...

PAUL:	Is she alright ?

PEPITO:	Woof woof ...

PAUL:	My god, I recognize that voice 
	!

BOUDREAU:	Oh come on.

PEPITO:	Woof woof, paulito.

PAUL:	Itís Pepito !  Ah, mi querido 
	perrito.  Como estas?  Hay 
	huesos en el cielo?
	
PEPITO:	(VOICE CHANGES TO DAD)  Woof, 
	woof ... Pauly ... Paul ...

PAUL:	Dad ?  Dad, is that you ?

DAD:	Paul, for Godís sake, donít 
	ever sell the house.

PAUL:	Dad ?  Listen, the old Hillman 
	in the garage ?  Where did you 
	leave the keys ?

MANNING:	Mr. Moth ?

PAUL:	Whoís this ?

MANNING:	R. Bennett Manning.

PAUL:	In the spirit world ?

MANNING:	No, Iím right here.

PAUL & ALL:	Whoa !

MANNING:	Sorry about that.  Paul, could 
	I speak to you in private.

PAUL:	Sure ...


AMBIENCE CROSS TO PLUSH QUIET HOTEL ROOM>


RB:	Can I offer you a drink?

PAUL:	I donít drink.

RB:	Herbal tea?

PAUL:	Should have figured, sure.

MANNING:	Iím surprized you accepted our 
	invitation and embrace the 
	Miracle.

PAUL:	Really ?

MANNING:	Public broadcasting is full of 
	skeptic and nay-sayers.

PAUL:	Hey, thatís news.  Iím in arts and 
	entertainment.  We take it 
	everything at face value.

MANNING:	Your teaís getting cold. You gave 
	Kathleen Hanrahan the third degree 
	on your show a couple of weeks 
	ago.

PAUL:	Look, I was just playing 
	devilís advocate. Dynamics of 
	the interview:  Kathleen does 
	the book beat and hey with the 
	novel dead I had to something. 
	I have the highest respect for 
	all of you here at Miracle 
	Ď96.

RB:	Iím not so sure.  We have 
	enemies at the BCN.

PAUL:	Nah, get out.

RB:	Two weeks ago, we found 
	evidence that Jerome Granger 
	was here, disguised and with a 
	hidden microphone.

PAUL:	Jerome?  Jerome Granger?  Not 
	ringing any bells.

RB:	He works with you.  Donít be 
	absurd.

PAUL:	Oh, that Jerome Granger, 
	right!  Ya, Iíve met him.

RB:	And that woman, Ariel Flint, 
	sheís got a personal vendetta 
	against our movement, and 
	sheís given a regular forum on 
	your show.

PAUL:	Heh, look, Iím a professional 
	host.  I have to deal with all 
	kinds of people.  This Flint 
	woman?  Personally?  Canít 
	bare her.  Despicable woman.

PAUL STARTS GETTING GROGGY AND 
STONED; THEY HAVE SPIKED THE 
TEA.

PAUL:	Heh, this is good herb.  
	(mimicking Oliver Twist)  
	Please sir, can I have some 
	more?  If I didnít know better 
	Iíd swear this was 
	barbitollllbuzz, (sniff) 
	qualude, hint of dilaudid, 
	violets, youíve slipped a 
	mickey, you BASSSSTAAAARD.

SFX:	PAUL HITS THE FLOOR - HEAVILY.

PAUL:	(on the long way down) 
	UNNNNNTTTTING UUUUUUUCK!

SHELLEY ENTERS.

SHELLEY:	Is he out?

RB:	Just.  Christ there was enough 
	narcotic in that tea to take 
	out a bull moose.

SHELLEY:	He must have some kind of 
	tolerance.  Flip him over.  
	Get his wallet.

RB:	Oh, look at this ... a picture 
	of Barbara Amiel.

SHELLEY:	Thatís promising.  What 
	plastic is he carrying ?

RB:	Ah ... ah ... jeez, all heís 
	got is a Canadian Tire card.

SHELLEY:	Here, Iíll do a quick Datamine 
	on it.
	
RB:	That canít be true. No other 
	accounts?

SHELLEY:	He does work in public
