(Scene 1:)
Quazi: Oh. Hello there. I'm Quazimoto, the hunchback of Notre Dame. I ring the bells. (He demonstrates pulling the ropes which swings the bells, up, down, up, down, and the big bells ring, bong, bong, bong, bong.)
Quazi: It's hard ringing these bells. So I put an ad in the paper for an assistant.
(2nd camper comes on stage and knocks at door)

Quazi: Oh. That must be him now. (Go down the long winding spiral staircase, still hunched over.) I have a long winding staircase, you know.
(Continue going down.) (Open the big heavy door.) Quazi: Hello?

No Arms: Hi! I read your ad in the paper, and I want to be your assistant!

Quazi: But you don't have any arms.

No Arms: I really really really want to ring bells! Please please please, give me a chance!

Quazi: Well. OK. Walk this way. (Go up the staircase, hunched and arms dragging)

No Arms: I can't, I don't have any arms! (going up perfectly straight with arms behind them)

Quazi: OK. Here are the bells. Here is how I ring them (up, down, up, down, bong, bong, bong, bong). I don't know what you're going to do. You don't have any arms.

No Arms: I can do it! Just watch! (He gets a running start, then whacks the bell with his face.) Booooong!!!

Quazi: Wow...that was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard! Please, Please do it again!

(The assistant gets a running start, misses the bell and falls to his death.)

Quazi: Ew. Squished bellringer.

(Knock knock knock) (Quazimoto descends the staircase)

Police: Quazimoto, do you know this man?

(Quazimoto turns the guy over, looks at the face, puts him down again.)
Quazi: No. But his face rings a bell!
(Police drag dead body away while Quazi climbs back up stairs.)


(Scene 2:)
Quazi: Hmmm, quite a shame about that poor guy yesterday. I hope I get some help today.
(No Arms #2 knocks on door. Quazi climbs down staircase again.)
Quazi: Hello?

No Arms: Hi! I read your ad in the paper, and I want to be your assistant!

Quazi: I thought you were dead.

Quazi: That was my brother! He so wanted to be a bellringer, that was his life's ambition! His greatest dream! With him dead, I felt that I just had to come and take his place!!

Quazi: But you don't have any arms.

No Arms: I really really really want to ring bells! Please please please, give me a chance!

Quazi: Well. OK. Walk this way. (Go up the staircase, hunched and arms dragging)

No Arms: I can't, I don't have any arms! (going up perfectly straight with arms behind them)

Quazi: OK. Here are the bells. Here is how I ring them (up, down, up, down, bong, bong, bong, bong). I don't know what you're going to do. You don't have any arms.

No Arms: I can do it! Just watch! (He gets a running start, then whacks the bell with his face.) Booooong!!!

Quazi: Wow...that was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard! Please, Please do it again!

(The assistant gets a running start, misses the bell and falls to his death.)
No Arms: AAAAH! (splat)

Quazi: Ew. Squished bellringer.

(Knock knock knock) (Quazimoto descends the staircase)

Police: Quazimoto, do you know this man??

(Quazimoto turns the guy over, looks at the face, puts him down again.)
Quazi: No. But he's a dead ringer for the guy that was here yesterday.


(Scene 3:)
Two campers run onstage with a blanket stretched between them. They scan the sky as they shuffle around as if preparing to catch something falling from the sky.
Quazi: Hey, you two! What are you doing running around outside my belltower?
Police: Well, the last two nights someone has jumped from the tower and we're ready for him this time!
