[ANNA enters stage right, looking for her friends; she is followed by BABU]
ANNA:ÂÂ(spotting her friends) Christy! Diego! I have someone I would like you to meet!
CHRISTY:ÂÂ(staring at the antenna) Uh, hi. My name is ... uh ... Christy.
DIEGO:ÂÂ(His back is to ANNA and BABU.) Just a minute. (He moves a game piece.) There! Okay, now I can see - (he turns his chair to face BABU and stares) - whoa! Are those what I think they are?
ANNA:ÂÂ(impatiently waving the question away) Yeah, yeah, yeah. This is Babu. He's an alien. He crash-landed in my backyard!
BABU:ÂÂ(bowing stiffly) Pleased to meet you.
DIEGO:ÂÂWow! You are so lucky, Anna!
CHRISTY:ÂÂ(nervously) Do you think he's here to take over the world?
