“Welcome! Welcome back to CLONE ME LATER! the late, late cloning show.”

“Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to all of you!”

“My name is Jim McClane, as you all know, and I want you to look at a video clip made earlier today. Who's that sitting on my lap? You must know. It's Muriel Miller who won the SING TO SUCCESS talent show this year. Let's turn the sound on and listen:”

“Thanks for inviting me to sing on your show, Jim. It's certainly more enjoyable than a talent show...” “And I know why you want to be here, Muriel. You want your very own backing choir, five of yourself, don't you?”

Five Muriel Millers walk onto the stage and sing Summertime, big applause.

Jim walks onto the stage with Muriel, the sixth Muriel. “If you're wondering what happened to the fifth clone, she is here on my arm, the best of the clones, but unfortunately voiceless. Time for a duet.”

Muriel Miller sings Papageno and Papagena from the Magic Flute with one of her clones. The other clones disappear, one by one.

Big applause, Jims walks on clapping. “Now for a big surprise!”

Elvis Presley enters the stage singing loudly “You ain't nothing but a hound dog.” He looks like Elvis, he moves like Elvis. he sings like Elvis, he is Jeff Bartles the winner of last year's SING TO SUCCESS.

Jeff looks very surprised and stops singing as two more Elvises appear behind him and sing. More Elvis clones appear and sing. Jeff sees Jim McClane, the Clone Master, at the side of the stage. Jeff laughs and is Elvis.

“But don't you step on my blue suede shoes.” The clones disappear, one by one. More applause.

Jim brings Muriel back on the stage. “I don't know about you, but it's getting late. I need to sleep soon. A lullaby from Muriel to Elvis, just like my mother sang to me when I was little:”

Just a song at twilight, when the lights are low And the flickering shadows softly come and go Though the heart be weary sad the day and long Still to us at twilight comes love's old sweet song
