35 INT. WMP COUNTRY CLUB, MAIN ROOM
MANAGER is handing the MONKEES their wages after the guests have left.
You fellows are certainly pros! A happy
ending, and no story! I get my lease
renewed for 99 years and there's
absolutely no dialogue about it. There's
no stupid chases. There's no silly scenes
and exposition, just stacks of goofy jokes
(SCREEN is upside-down)
and silly special effects.
(Returns right side up)
Thanks to you.
And it was a dream come true for me as
well, to see the four of you all together
like this. Even though you're all grown
up, you're just as stupid as you ever were!
(aside to others)
Oh, and Davy, I found out how old I am!!
Oh, really? How old?
What a maroon!

The MONKEEMOBILE with the MONKEES is returning to the pad after an interesting night with the concert and meeting Princess.

PETER presses 1ST DIMENSION BUTTON. SCREEN turns into previously mentioned set-up for the first dimension.

PETER PRESSES 2ND DIMENSION BUTTON. SCREEN turns into previously mentioned set-up for the 2nd dimension.

they're not being broadcasted.
PETER PRESSES 4TH DIMENSION BUTTON. SCREEN turns into previously mentioned set-up for the 4th dimension.
The Princess does! She's still
watching new episodes of 'The Flying
Everybody laughs. PETER PRESSES 3RD DIMENSION BUTTON. DAVY imitates Princess' snort laugh. Everybody laughs again.
And 'Charlie's Angels' and 'MASH' and
'Cheers' and ... and ...
(noticing something seriously unusual)
It's the PAD COVERED IN TOILET PAPER.
They DRIVE UP TO THE PAD, and step out. They look at the work in half awe and half sad.
They papered the house!
You know, it doesn't look half bad!
Well, might as well finish it off!
(starts to put finger in mouth)
And the show? 'Cause this will finish
up the rest of the production budget,
Well, this place is good as any. Endings
are always hard.
MIKE, DAVY, and PETER cover their ears.
MICKY sticks finger in mouth and SPEWS OUT CONFETTI and FIREWORKS. SPECIAL EFFECTS DISAPATES and then CAMERA FREEZES for a few seconds on the group in a celebratory stance.
