Proud of Me!

Act One  Scene One


Helen


How were rehearsals?  


Violet


Amazing, Mother.  You won't believe what happened today!  The cutest boy in school-  


Helen


Let me stop you right there.  Do I look like I care?  Now, when you're home from rehearsals, you will get started on dinner right away.  Do you understand? I said do you understand?  


Violet


Yes, ma'am  


(Sings)


If only you could see


How you unintentionally hurt me  


Though you're cruel  


I wish you knew what it was to love


It's something I'm praying for to the above  


Don't you see


How you hurt me?


If only you could see


But it's too much to ask


Just another task  


I'm but something on your list


If only you could see


How that hurts me


It's something I pray for to the above  


To teach you how to love


Helen


I thought I smelled burnt chicken.  


Violet


Nothing is burned, Mother.


Helen


You know if you spent half the time cooking that you do singing, you'd be a rather good housekeeper.  You do want to get married one day, don't you?  


Violet


Mother!  


Helen


Well? If you do, I'd start taking your responsibilities  a little more seriously around here. Now hurry up and serve the food. I've got people coming over to celebrate Lily's graduation!   


Violet serves the guest


Violet


Would anyone care for appetizers? I made them myself.   


Guest 1


What an obedient little girl you've got there, Helen!  You must be so proud!  


Helen


Yes, well-  (Shoos for Violet to get back into the kitchen)  


Guest 2


Delicious! Why your daughter has a talent for cooking!


Helen


Sings


Really?


Don't be silly



Don't encourage her


You see, she's not right  


She's way too uptight


And she smiles at every little complaint


She can't even paint


Don't be silly


She thinks she's always right  


But she hasn't  won this fight  


Now you were saying? And might I remind you, that you are here for Lily's honor only!  


Violet


In my dreams, you're kind


And my lip, you don't even mind  


In my dreams, I wrote a children's book 


And you're the crook  


In my dreams, I'm someone everyone knows about  


I've got clout


In my dreams you understand


And even give me a hand


It's  a shame


It's just a game


You're kind  


Only in my dreams


What I wouldn't give for a mother/daughter relationship  


We could even go on a trip


Too bad


I'm sad  


It's only in my dreams that you're kind!


And my lip you don't even mind


Act One Scene Two  


Lily and Logan fly into the house screaming at each other


Logan


You're impossible, you know that!  


Lily


I'm impossible?!  


Violet rushes to take Logan's coat  


Violet


What's going on?  


Logan


I proposed to your sister today and she's mad because I didn't do it in front of your mother!  I would understand if it made sense, but this just doesn't.   


Violet


Lily, go get washed up.  Your celebration has started. You're the guest of honor. Now, Logan... Tell me what exactly happened during the proposal, will you?  


Logan


Of course! You see, I told her she was acting just like her mother. I didn't know she'd take it as an insult  


Violet


I suppose you thought that was a compliment, did you?  


Logan


Well yes...   


Violet


Logan? Did Lily ever tell you about her ex-boyfriend? No? Okay then. I know I'm overstepping here, but I think I need to speak up.   My mother and Lily would have you believe she's not fragile, but the truth is, she's sensitive and rightly so.  You see.. her ex was a manipulative son of a gun...   


Logan


Ah. Explains why she's afraid to speak her mind to me. Although today she wasn't. Even though I disagreed with what she wanted me to do, I was proud of her for standing her ground,


Violet and Logan


Sometimes to get along


We must go along


Am I wrong?


It can be confusing


And you wonder what you're losing


I'm not wrong!


Helen


Our food better still be hot for as long as that wait was!


Guest 1


Now, Helen... Don't be too harsh on the girl.  It looks lovely, my dear. What do I owe you?  (Puts money on the tray) Just don't accidentally throw it out.  (Winks)  


Violet


I apologize for the delay, ladies and gentlemen. I had some drama going on, but it's all taken care of now. Here is your main course.  I shall be back with dessert in a few hours.   


Guest 1


Excuse me, will you, Helen?  


Guest 1


Violet, is it? That's a pretty name by the way.  


Violet


My mom had a thing for flowers.   


Guest 1


You're certainly as beautiful as one.  I guess I better get back in there. By the way, my name is Ethan.  


Violet


It was very lovely meeting you, Ethan.  


Helen


May I have everyone's attention, please?  Lily, stand up! You are the guest of honor, sweetheart.    My little girl has graduated from high school and she's going on to Julliard!  To my daughter's success  


Guests


To Lily's success!   


Everyone leaves


Helen


Violet, dear!  Time to clean up and remember we're leaving tomorrow to check out that school for Lily.  You can't go. You still have chores to take care of.  


Violet


I didn't want to go anyway.


Helen


What was that?


Violet


I said yes, ma'am.  


Act Two Scene One  


Out of breath. Violet runs into Ethan.


Ethan


Whoa...  Where's the fire?  


Violet


My mom and sister were supposed to be back yesterday, but they aren't. I fear that something has happened to them.  


Ethan  


Come on, we'll take my dad's jet.    


Violet


Seriously?


Ethan


Come on! We've got a rescue mission!


Helen


Logan put the weapon away! You don't want to do this.  Think about it!  


Lily


Mommy. I'm scared!


Logan


Shut up! Both of you! Don't you get it? You two are what caused me to get to this point!  Now.. Who wants to be my first victim?  (Laughs)  I pick you, Helen!  Violet and Lily and will be much better off without you, anyway.  


Violet burst in the door


Violet


Let my mother go and deal with me!


Logan


You're next! Don't worry!


Ethan lassos Logan and drags him out of the place. He lets go of Helen


Violet and Lily


Mommy!


Helen


My girls! My girls!


Ethan


Come on, pal. You're going away for a long time.  


Act Two Scene Two


Helen


Just look at what you were able to do!


Have I told you lately just how I proud am of you?


No, don't look at me like... it's true


I'm proud of you


Only someone with courage and bravery


Could do what you did today


You didn't let anything or anyone would stand in your way


I'm proud of you


Violet


The words I've been longing to hear


So why are they what I fear?


You're proud of me


That I can clearly see


I know I should smile


But I'm afraid it's going to only last a little while


Helen


Darling, I'm proud of you  


It's true


Here's something to consider


Yes. I was bitter


But I can change


It's the attitude I'm going to have to rearrange  


Darling, I'm proud of you  


Violet


The words I've been longing to hear


I no longer fear


It's not just temporary


I prayed to the above


That you would learn to love


And now you're proud of me


That I can clearly see


I'm proud of you too


Yes it's true


Helen and Violet


Proud of me!  


Helen


Oh look, there's your handsome prince.  I'll go get dinner started.   Come on, Lily.  I'm going to teach you how to cook.  This will be our mother-daughter bonding time.   


Violet smiles as she watches her mom and sister head to the kitchen


Ethan


How do you do?


Violet


Fine, thank you and you?  


Ethan


Well, you see. I'm a little nervous.  I have a very important question to ask you, Violet. Will you be my wife?  


Violet


Yes!  


Act Two Scene Three


Minister  


Dearly, beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate love.  Love is a risk that is sometimes worth taking.  The vows?  


Violet


I promise to love and cherish you. I promise to always make you laugh when you're down and to take care of you when you're sick. I promise to love you as no other has before.   


Ethan


I promise to love and cherish you. I promise to always make you laugh when you're down and take care of you when you're sick. I definitely and always promise to love you as no other has before.  


Minister


The rings now


Exchange rings


Minister


You may kiss the bride now!  


Violet  


It's a dream come true


To have found you  


When I was a kid   


I dream of my wedding ever since


I never knew I'd find a prince


Ethan


I never dreamed I'd find a princess


But I did I found you


Violet and Ethan  


It's a dream come true!
