      • Chairry: Have you read the story about Miss Yvonne?
        Globey: Do you think it's true?
        Conky: It must be. It's in the newspaper.
        Globey: Why did she do it?! I thought she was our friend!
        (Miss Yvonne storms in)
        Miss Yvonne: Who's responsible for this?!
        (she shows everyone the headline of the paper)
        Pterri: "Miss Yvonne Robs Playhouse"?!
        (everyone is shocked)
        Chairry: I can't believe my eyes!
        Dirty Dog: Yeah! She ain't no crook!
        Miss Yvonne: I just can't believe this! Why, these are all lies!
        Pee-wee: Hi, everybody. So, did you all enjoy the paper?
        Everyone else: NO!
        Globey: I didn't say there were headhunters in Iceland.
        Pee-wee: But...
        Jambi: And you told everyone I'd give them 2 wishes.
        Pee-wee: But... But...
        Miss Yvonne: And why did you print this about me?
        (she hands Pee-wee her copy of the paper; Pee-wee is shocked to see the headline)
        Pee-wee: "Miss Yvonne Robs Playhouse"?!!
        Miss Yvonne: You know it isn't true.
        Pee-wee: Gosh, everyone. I didn't write this.
        Everyone else: Who did?!
        Randy: I did! (laughs)

      • Pterri: Oh, Jambi!
        Jambi: What is it, Pterri?
        Pterri: May I have my 2 wishes, please?
        Jambi: Wishes? What wishes?
        Pterri: It says right here on your horoscope column, everyone gets 2 wishes today.
        Jambi: Wait a minute! That's not what I said!

      • Magic Screen: Gee, Globey. I didn't know there were headhunters in Iceland.
        Globey: What?! Who says?
        Magic Screen: You do, right here on page 3.
        Globey: I didn't write that. The people of Iceland are very friendly.

      • Globey: You know, Pee-wee, a newspaper is a great way to find out what's happening.
        Pterri: What does it say about me?
        Chairry: What does it say about me?
        Floory: What about me?
        Globey: Sorry, everybody. There's nothing in it about the Playhouse.
        Pee-wee: That gives me a great idea, Globey. Why don't we start a Playhouse newspaper. And everyone here can help write stories.
