Act 1, Scene 1

(Bound and unconscious, Trainer is roused by Monkey's paws.)

TRAINER: (Groaning.) My head! Where are we? How long have I been out? Monkey? Monkey, please untie me.

MONKEY: (Unresponsive.)

TRAINER: Monkey, untie.

MONKEY: (Unresponsive.)

TRAINER: (Whispering to self.) Okay, just think back to Monkey Training 101. Appeal to conditioning, positive reinforcement. Command, reward. I got it! (To monkey.) Alright, monkey, there's a banana in my pocket. Untie me and it's yours!

MONKEY: (Scuttling off.) OO-OO, AA-AA-AAA!

[Exeunt Monkey]

This seems like a ripoff of your Llama trainer scene.

I learned from commercials not to sue myself because that would be idiotic.
