Water Vending Machine
Skit

 

Action

One scout is a mechanical water vending machine. He holds the paper cup in one hand and the pitcher of water in the other. He stands center stage, facing stage left.

The second scout is an extremely thirsty person looking for a drink of water.

(scout #2 walks to center stage)
Scout #2: Man, I'm dying of thirst. I need a drink bad! What's this? Hey, a water vending machine - cool!

Scout #1: (in mechanical voice) Deposit 25 cents Please.

Scout #2: Alright. (takes quarter from his pocket and deposits it in vending machine scout's shirt pocket.)

Vending machine holds out paper cup, holds out pitcher, and pours water, but it purposefully misses the cup so the stream of water slowly pours onto the ground.

Scout #2: Hey, hey! (tries to grab the stream of water and licks it from his fingers.)

Scout #2: Stupid machine! I still need water!

Scout #1: (in mechanical voice) Deposit 25 cents Please.

Scout #2: Yeah, yeah, I know. (takes quarter and deposits in pocket.)

This time the machine holds out the cup, then the pitcher, then pours the water right into the cup. As the scout reaches for it, he quickly tips the cup upside down and then back upright again.

Scout #2: HEY! Man, I've just go to get some water.

Scout #1: (in mechanical voice) Deposit 25 cents Please.

(scout finds another quarter and deposits in pocket.)

This time the machine successfully pours a cup of water, but when the person reaches for it, the machine drinks it himself.

Scout #2: I don't believe it! I don't believe it! (searches for a quarter) This is my LAST quarter. I've got to get some water from this machine!

(person deposits quarter in pocket.)

This time as soon as the scout puts the quarter in the machine's pocket, he spits water in his face that he had kept in his mouth from drinking the cup.

Alternate Ending: The vending machine can drop the cup and when Scout #2 bends down to pick it up, he dumps the pitcher on him.
