1 1 5 Male Actors: Jack King Farmer Male TV Reporter Know-It-All Guy 5 Female Actors: Jack s Mama Princess Tammy Serving Maid Know-It-All Gal 2 or more Narrators: Guys or Girls Narrator : At the newsroom, two reporters were talking. MALE TV REPORTER: Tammy? Yes, Boss? MALE TV REPORTER: I want you to go to the castle and find out who wins the King s contest. What contest is that, Boss? MALE TV REPORTER: Listen to my news bulletin and see. Narrator : The male TV reporter then gave a news bulletin on National TV. MALE TV REPORTER: We interrupt this broadcast to bring you the latest news out at the King s castle. As you know, the Princess has never laughed or even smiled. She spends day after day staring out the window, sighing loudly. Therefore, the King has started a contest. Listen as the King speaks: Whichever man can make my daughter laugh, can marry her right here and now. Also, he will get two bags of gold. MALE TV REPORTER: It is anybody s guess which man can be funny enough to actually make the Princess laugh. We will keep you posted. We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast. Narrator : The Basic Needs we will concentrate on in this role-play are POWER, RESPECT, SELF-RESPECT, FUN, BELONGING, FREEDOM, SAFETY, and SECURITY.
2 2 Narrator : Which Basic Needs was the male TV reporter trying to get met in that interaction with Tammy and the King? Audience, please respond. KNOW-IT-ALL GUY: I know! I know! The male reporter wanted to get his RESPECT need met because he wanted Tammy to do what he requested. He also wanted the TV viewing audience to be excited about his report. KNOW-IT-ALL GAL: Yeah! But he also wanted to get his SAFETY and SECURITY needs met. Since he doesn t want the television viewing audience to switch to a different channel, he needs to give exciting news reports. Narrator : Which Basic Needs was Tammy trying to get met by doing as her boss requested? Audience, please respond. KNOW-IT-ALL GAL: That s easy! Since Tammy wants to keep her job as a news reporter, she feels she must do as her boss requests. Therefore, she is trying to get her needs for SAFETY and SECURITY met, just like her boss. In order to keep their jobs, they each have someone to answer to. KNOW-IT-ALL GUY: Yeah! But she also wants to get her RESPECT need met by having her boss feel like she is doing a good job. Narrator : On with our story. The King went back into the castle and called for his Serving Maid, Esmerelda. Esmerelda! ESMERELDA: Yes, your Majesty? Do you think I did the right thing? ESMERELDA: What do you mean? Well, the Princess knows nothing about this contest. Do you think she will be angry with me? ESMERELDA: Well, she might. But at the same time, it is a shame that she is so sad and serious all the time. It would be great if she finally finds someone who will make her laugh and smile. I agree! Well, thank you, Esmerelda. I feel much better! You may go for now. ESMERELDA: Yes, Your Majesty! Just call if you need me.
3 3 Narrator : Which Basic Needs is the King trying to get met in that interaction with his Serving Maid? Audience, please respond. KNOW-IT-ALL GUY: I know! I know! He probably wants to keep his SELF-RESPECT. Knowing that his own daughter is sad and serious all the time must make him feel like he is not a very good father. KNOW-IT-ALL GAL: Yeah! But he also wanted to get his BELONGING need met, because he didn t want his daughter getting mad at him. Narrator : Okay, you two Know-It-Alls! Like we said before, on with the story. Narrator : On the other side of town, there lived this fellow Jack and his Mama. They didn t have a TV, and they didn t know anything about the King s announcement. Narrator : One day, Jack s Mama looked at Jack and said: JACK S MAMA: Jack! You ve lazed around here long enough. You go get yourself a job! Narrator : Now Jack was this really goofy guy. He looked goofy, and he talked in a goofysounding voice, most of the time. However, he was really nice. Jack said: Okay, Mama! Narrator : As Jack headed off looking for a job. He thought: Well, Mama told me to go get a job, so I better go get a job. I wonder who I feel like working for? I don t want to work in a store. I don t want to sell newspapers. I know! I m pretty good at farm work. I think I ll find me a farmer who will give me a job. Narrator : Okay, it s time to ask those Basic Needs questions again. What Basic Needs was Jack trying to get met after that interaction with his mother? Audience, please respond: KNOW-IT-ALL GAL: That is so easy! Jack wants his Mama to be pleased with him; so of course, he is trying to get his BELONGING need met and his RESPECT need, too. KNOW-IT-ALL GUY: Yeah! But Jack also wants to get a job that will please him, so he can at least have a little FUN. Narrator : Thanks, Know-It-Alls! We ll take it from here. Jack wasn t having too much FUN or luck as a bunch of farmers turned him down. They already had hired all the farm workers they needed.
4 4 Narrator : Jack was getting discouraged. He sure didn t want to go home and admit to his Mama that he couldn t find a job. That wouldn t make him feel very SECURE. Narrator : Finally, Jack did find this one farmer who seemed pretty nice. Jack requested: Hi ya, Mr. Farmer! Can I come work for you? Have you ever done any farm work before? I sure have! In fact, I m pretty good at farm work. That s what my Mama always says. All right! When can you start? Right now! Okay! Let s get to work! Narrator : Jack definitely had a feeling of SELF-RESPECT about his farming abilities. The farmer grew to RESPECT Jack for his wonderful farming talents. Narrator : Jack and the farmer worked really hard all day. At the end of the day, the farmer said: Jack! You did such a good job, I m going to give you a dime. Thanks, Mr. Farmer! I ll see you tomorrow. Narrator : Jack started walking home. As he walked, he thought: Gee, I ve never had a dime before. Mama always bought everything we needed. I wonder what I should do with it? I know! I ll see how many times I can throw it up in the air and catch it. That should be FUN! Narrator : Jack had a good time throwing that dime up in the air and catching it. Then he came to a bridge overlooking a river. Jack said: Oops! I dropped my dime in the river. I can t swim. Mama s not gonna be too happy with me. Oh, well! Narrator : Jack walked the rest of the way home. There was his Mama waiting. She demanded: JACK S MAMA: Jack, did you get yourself a job? I sure did! I worked for a farmer all day. JACK S MAMA: Did you get paid? I sure did! Mr. Farmer paid me a dime. JACK S MAMA: Where is it?
5 5 I dropped it in the river. JACK S MAMA: Jack, obviously you were playing around. What you should have done was to put it in your pocket. Oh, I never would have thought of that. Narrator : Jack felt really bad. His SELF-RESPECT need and his BELONGING need got messed with as his Mama had criticized him for losing that dime. He was determined to do better next time. Narrator : The next day, Jack went back to that farmer s house. Hi, Jack! Hi, Mr. Farmer! Let s get to work! Narrator : Jack and that farmer worked really hard all day. At the end of the day, the farmer said: Jack! You did such a good job, I m going to give you a stick of butter. Thanks, Mr. Farmer! I ll see you tomorrow. Narrator : Jack took that stick of butter, and he thought: Now what did my Mama say to do with that? Oh, yeah! She said to put it in my pocket. Narrator : So he did. It was a hot, sunny day. Jack never noticed the butter melting. Jack walked the rest of the way home. There was his Mama waiting! She asked: JACK S MAMA: Jack, did you get paid today? I sure did! Mr. Farmer paid me a stick of butter. JACK S MAMA: Where is it? Right here. Narrator : Jack reached into his pocket and pulled out sticky gobs of butter. He said: Ewwwwww! What happened, Mama? JACK S MAMA: Jack, the butter melted! What you should have done was to put it in the river until it got really cool. Then you could have carried it home in your hands. Oh, I never would have thought of that.
6 6 Narrator : Once again, Jack s need for SELF-RESPECT and his need for BELONGING got messed with. He really wanted to be able to please his Mama. He thought: I hope I don t mess up again tomorrow! Narrator : The next day, Jack went back to that farmer s house. The farmer said: Hi, Jack! Hi, Mr. Farmer! Let s get to work! Narrator : Jack and that farmer worked really hard all day. At the end of the day, the farmer said: Jack! You did such a good job, I m going to give you a kitten. Thanks, Mr. Farmer! I ll see you tomorrow. Narrator : Jack took that kitten, and he thought: Now what did my Mama say to do with that? Oh, yeah! She said to put it in the water until it gets really cool. Narrator : Jack found a river, and he dipped the kitten in the water several times. The kitten didn t much like that. Then Jack walked the rest of the way home. There was his Mama waiting! JACK S MAMA: Jack, did you get paid today? I sure did! Mr. Farmer paid me a kitten. Narrator : Jack held out that kitten for his Mama to see. She gasped and exclaimed: JACK S MAMA: Jack, that poor kitten is half drowned! What did you do to it? I put it in the water like you told me to. JACK S MAMA: Jack, I was talking about the butter! What you should have done was to put it in a sack. Oh, I really never would have thought of that. Narrator : Jack felt really bad. He thought: Man, oh man! I messed up three days in a row! Tomorrow, I will try so hard to do the right thing. I sure want my Mama to be proud of me. Narrator : So far, Jack had not managed to get either his RESPECT or BELONGING needs met with his Mama. However, he did feel very SAFE, SECURE, and RESPECTED working for the farmer.
7 7 Narrator : Jack also enjoyed the FUN of seeing what he was going to be paid each day. Narrator : The next day, Jack went back to that farmer s house. Hi, Jack! Hi, Mr. Farmer! Let s get to work! Narrator : Jack and that farmer worked really hard all day. At the end of the day, the farmer said: Jack! You did such a good job, I m going to give you a kitten. Thanks, Mr. Farmer! I ll see you tomorrow. Narrator : Jack took that donkey, and he thought: \ Now what did my Mama say to do with that? Oh, yeah! She said to put it in a sack. Narrator : Jack got a sack and tried and tried to put the donkey in it. Finally, Jack said: I don t know how to put a donkey in a sack. I know! You carry a sack on your back. Well, I can t put the donkey in this sack. But I could carry this donkey on my back. Narrator : Jack put the front hooves of that donkey over his shoulders, and he started to carry the donkey home. Jack said: This donkey sure is heavy! I better take a short-cut past the King s castle. Narrator : Jack grunted and groaned, and the donkey made loud donkey sounds as they trudged along. Narrator : The Princess was looking out the window like she did every day. PRINCESS: SIGH!!! Life sure is boring! Nothing new ever happens around here. Narrator : Suddenly, the Princess noticed a strange sight down below. First, she thought she saw a donkey floating through the air. Then she saw a man s pair of legs underneath that donkey.
8 8 Narrator : Then it hit her. Instead of there being a man riding a donkey, there was a donkey riding a man. The Princess began to laugh wildly. PRINCESS: Hee-hee! Hoo-hoo! Ho-ho! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! Narrator : The King came running. He exclaimed: Glory be! My daughter is laughing! Daughter, Daughter! What s so funny? PRINCESS: Look! There s a donkey riding a man! Narrator : The King looked and he started to laugh wildly, too! Ha! Ha! Ha! Young man, hold on. Wait! Now put that donkey down, and let me talk to you. Okay, King! Anything you say, King! Narrator : Jack put that heavy donkey down, and he waited to hear what the King had to say. Jack, you made my daughter laugh! Just for that, you get to marry my daughter right here and now. And you also get two bags of gold. Thanks, King! I sure do choose to marry the Princess if she chooses to marry me. Narrator : Both men looked at the Princess. She thought: PRINCESS: My father said that Jack could marry me because he made me laugh. Really, it was the donkey who made me laugh, not Jack. But I d much rather marry a man than a donkey. Besides, Jack is pretty cute. And he seems pretty funny. He s
9 9 PRINCESS: definitely strong. If he can carry a donkey, I bet he could carry me. Yeah, I guess I choose to marry Jack. It s about time I get married anyway. Narrator : The Princess said: PRINCESS: Yes, Jack. I will marry you. Narrator : Jack and the Princess were married. Jack took the Princess, the two bags of gold loaded on the donkey s back, and headed for home. Jack s Mama asked: JACK S MAMA: Jack, what in tarnation happened, Son? Narrator : Jack announced in joy and triumph: Hey, Mama! I got paid today! Narrator : Up to that very moment, the Princess had been laughing wildly. Suddenly, she began looking all sad and serious again. The Princess said: PRINCESS: Father, I need to talk to you for a moment! Please, excuse us, Jack. Narrator : The Princess led her Father off to the side to complain: PRINCESS: Father, just because I laughed at the donkey riding on Jack s back, doesn t mean that I m ready to get married. But, Daughter, I promised! I promised that whoever could make you laugh could marry you on the spot. Plus, he gets two bags of gold. PRINCESS: Father, that interferes with my NEED FOR FREEDOM. I don t even know the guy. You are trying to take away my NEED FOR POWER also by taking away my sense of control. I want to please you as that satisfies my NEED FOR BELONGING; however, my other needs feel stronger right now. I m sorry to upset you so, but I did make a promise. PRINCESS: Well, would you at least give me some time to talk with Jack? If I find out we can get along, I will agree to marry him. Otherwise, it will just end up in divorce. And then where would your promise be? That makes sense, Daughter. All right! I will go in the castle and wait. You have a talk with Jack.
10 10 Narrator : The Princess led Jack over to a bench, and the two of them sat down to have a discussion. PRINCESS: Jack, we need to have a little talk. Sure thing, Princess. I would really like to talk to you. PRINCESS: I believe before we make any final decisions, we need to get to know each other a little better. That s okay by me. PRINCESS: Jack, I m curious! Why were you carrying the donkey on your back? Was it just because you heard about the contest? No, Princess. I never heard anything about the contest until the King mentioned it just now. My Mama and I live way off by ourselves and don t get to hear much of the town news. And besides, that farmer has kept me so busy working the last few days, I didn t hear anything from him either. PRINCESS: Oh. Well, why were you carrying the donkey? Because my Mama told me to. PRINCESS: You mean to say your Mama told you to put a donkey on your back? Well, not exactly. What she actually said was to put it in a sack. PRINCESS: Why would your Mama tell you to put a donkey in a sack? Well, that s not exactly what I mean either. What she really said was to put a kitten in a sack. PRINCESS: Jack, I think you better start at the beginning, and tell me exactly what happened. I find I m getting a bit confused. Narrator : Before Jack could do that, Tammy, the female reporter, came running up. Princess, is it true? Did this man really make you laugh? And does that mean that today is your wedding day? The people of this town are dying to know! PRINCESS: Yes, this is the man who made me laugh. But whether or not this is my wedding day remains to be seen. Now Jack was just about to tell me his story. You may listen in if you like. Thank you, Princess! Please proceed, Jack. Well, a few days ago, my Mama told me to go get a job. So I did. I went to work for a farmer. The first day, my pay was a dime. I walked home throwing that dime up in the air and catching it. Unfortunately, I dropped the dime in the river.
11 11 Why didn t you fish the dime out of the river? I can t swim. I knew Mama would be mad, but I walked home anyway. PRINCESS: What did she do? She told me to put it in my pocket next time. The next day, the farmer paid me with a stick of butter. I remembered that my Mama told me to stick it in my pocket. So I did. But it went and melted on me. Jack, do you really believe your Mama was talking about the butter? No, I know she was talking about the dime. But I figured what was good enough for the dime was good enough for the butter. But I guess the butter didn t agree, cause it went and melted all over my good pair of blue jeans. Narrator : The Princess started laughing hysterically again. PRINCESS: HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! Jack, you are the funniest man! What happened next? Well, when Mama saw the melted butter, she told me I should have put it in the water until it got really cool. The next day, the farmer paid me with a kitten. I remembered that my Mama told me to put it in the water. So I did. But the kitten didn t much like that. Jack, do you really believe your Mama was talking about the kitten? No, I know she was talking about the butter. But I figured what was good enough for the butter was good enough for the kitten. But I guess the kitten and my Mama didn t agree. She told me what I should have done was to put it in a sack. PRINCESS: Oh, now I see. Go ahead and tell Tammy the rest. Well, today, the farmer paid me with a donkey. That donkey standing right over there. I remembered that my Mama told me to put it in a sack. I tried. But the donkey wouldn t fit. Narrator : Both Tammy and the Princess began to laugh. Tammy, the Woman Reporter, giggled and asked: Hee-hee-hee! Jack, did you really try to put a donkey in a sack? Yes, that was what my Mama said to do. Do you always do what your Mama says? I try. I want her to be proud of me. She s the only family I ve got. PRINCESS: Oh, I get it. To make your Mama proud fulfills your NEED FOR BELONGING.
12 12 I ve never thought about that. Uh,..., I guess so. Yeah, you re right. It does! And if my Mama feels proud of me, then it gives me a feeling of control. PRINCESS: Then that would mean you would also fulfill your NEED FOR POWER if your Mama feels proud of you? Yeah, that, too! You re a smart woman, Princess. I like the way you think. PRINCESS: Thank you, Jack! And I think you re mighty funny and cute! Ah! Shucks me golly gee! That s sure nice to hear from a beautiful woman like you! PRINCESS: Why, thank you, Jack! Now, please continue. Well, when I couldn t get the donkey in the sack, I remembered something! TAMMY & PRINCESS: What? I remembered that you carry a sack on your back. Well, since I couldn t put the donkey in the sack like my Mama said, I put the donkey on my back. That way, I would get the donkey home for sure and certain, and I would make my Mama proud. Well, did you? Did I what? Did you make your Mama proud? Oh, well, she doesn t know about it yet. Since the donkey was so heavy, I thought I better take a shortcut past the King s castle. Next thing I knew, the Princess and then the King were laughing and well,... here I am. PRINCESS: You should have seen it, Tammy. It was the funniest thing I ever saw! Uh, Princess. I m really proud and happy if I managed to make you laugh. I would also be really proud and happy to marry you, but only if you think I could make you happy all of the time. PRINCESS: Thank you, Jack. Tammy, may I talk with you privately for a minute? Uh, Jack, please excuse us. Narrator : Tammy and the Princess walked off to the side. What is it, Princess? PRINCESS: Tammy, I need your help. I like Jack. He s really cute and funny. But unless we can agree on a few major issues, it just wouldn t work out. I ll do whatever I can. What do you need?
13 13 PRINCESS: Tammy, I didn t just spend all my time staring out the window I did a lot of reading and thinking. It sounds to me that Jack is blaming all of his actions on others. Everything is his Mama s fault, so to speak. I can t marry anyone who isn t willing to take responsibility for the choices that he makes. I can only be long-lasting happy if I am married to someone who is willing to realize that he is making his behavior choices based on trying to get his Basic Needs met. What Basic Needs are you talking about, Princess? PRINCESS: There are several. Some of the main ones are: POWER, RESPECT, SELF- RESPECT, FUN, BELONGING, FREEDOM, SAFETY, and SECURITY. Can you give me an example? PRINCESS: Yes! My Father wants to keep the promise he made to his people. Without my knowledge or consent, he promised that whoever could make me laugh could marry me on the spot. If I agree, I will help fulfill his NEED FOR POWER as he will get his way. But that goes against my NEED FOR POWER because it takes away my sense of control over MY life. It also interferes with my NEED FOR FREEDOM as I wish to be able to choose who I want to marry. On the one hand, I want to please my Father as that would fulfill my BELONGING NEED, but to marry a man simply because he made me laugh does not fulfill my NEED FOR FUN. Do you get it? Does that make sense?
14 14 That makes perfect sense. So, in other words, you need to get Jack to understand that he didn t do what he did just to please his Mama. You want Jack to realize that he chose to do each and every thing that he did because it fulfilled one or more of his Basic Needs. PRINCESS: Exactly! You re a great reporter! Can you help organize this conversation? I choose to help as it would fulfill my NEED FOR POWER and RESPECT, my NEED FOR BELONGING, and my NEED FOR FUN. Four out of eight! That s not bad. Narrator : The two women rejoined Jack. They began the discussion that would determine if this day would be the wedding day of Jack and the Princess. Jack, I want to make certain I understand your story. Why did you put the butter in your pocket, the kitten in the river, and try to put the donkey in a sack? Because I wanted to please my Mama. And why did you want to please your Mama? Because I wanted to make my Mama proud of me. And why did you want to make your Mama proud? Uh,..., well,..., if she was proud of me, then I would feel like I had been a good son and had done my part as a member of the family. PRINCESS: So in other words, Jack, you chose to do each and every thing that you did because you were trying to fulfill your NEED FOR BELONGING. Do you agree? Narrator : Jack had no idea how important the answer to this question would be. If he agreed, this day might very possibly be his wedding day. If he still insisted on giving his Mama the credit for his decisions, he would walk home minus the Princess and possibly the two bags of gold Oh, I get it! I hadn t thought about it that way before until a few minutes ago. I did some thinking while I was sitting here waiting for you two to get done with your conversation. Is it okay if I quickly re-tell my story? TAMMY & PRINCESS: Of course, Jack! My Mama told me to go get a job. I agreed as I wanted her to be pleased with me. So like you said, that would fulfill my BELONGING NEED. That first day, the farmer paid me a dime. I had never held a dime before. Mama always bought everything that I needed. So I had a really good time playing catch with it. It was lots of FUN until I dropped it in the river. Then it wasn t so FUN anymore.
15 15 PRINCESS: So for a little while, that satisfied your NEED FOR FUN. Is that correct? It sure did! I liked working for that farmer. It satisfied my NEED FOR FUN to see what he would pay me each day. It also made me feel in control of my life to know I was pleasing him by being a hard worker; and hopefully, I was pleasing my Mama, too. PRINCESS: So that satisfied your NEED FOR POWER, RESPECT, and FREEDOM. Do you agree? It sure did! Are there any more of those needs you keep mentioning? PRINCESS: Yes. There are several, but the main ones are POWER, RESPECT, SELF- RESPECT, FUN, BELONGING, FREEDOM, SAFETY, and SECURITY. Narrator : The Princess realized that she would enjoy being married to Jack. They called out the King. Tammy got her camera man to come take a video of the wedding that all the TV viewing audience could watch. Then the whole group walked to Jack s house together. Jack s Mama asked: JACK S MAMA: Jack, what in tarnation happened, Son? Narrator : Jack announced in joy and triumph: Hey, Mama! I got paid today! Narrator : Which ending did you like better and why - the strange ending or the more realistic ending? Audience, please respond.
