MAYOR: Fellow villagers! This Monster before us has terrorized our town for too long. Let us destroy the beast before it attacks again!
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: Wait! Lower your pitchforks! My creation is no MONSTER. Look beyond his green skin and you will see an innocent creature with the mind of a child!
MAYOR: Dr. Frankenstein's words have moved me. Let us go and leave this gentle giant in peace.
BLACKSMITH: But he throttled my only son to death.
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: Did he? Or do you simply blame him because he is different from you and I?
BLACKSMITH: No, I saw it. It was the Monster. He twisted his back in like, three different directions and then threw him into a bonfire. It was pretty horrible.
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: But don't you see? It was only frightened of the fire. Frightened, I say!
BLACKSMITH: It took him 4 hours to die.
MAYOR: That's upsetting. But Dr. Frankenstein has a point. We shall let the creature live, and be sure not to use fire around him.
BAR WENCH: He also crushed my husband's head on a rock down at the river.
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: Oh, yeah. Water also sets him off.
BAR WENCH: I think I saw him laughing as he picked him up.
MAYOR: Wow. Nevertheless, let us forgive this creature, and be sure to keep him from anything associated with fire or water.
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: Or moving objects.
MAYOR: Or moving objects.
BAKER: What about my father? The Monster impaled him on a fence post this morning.
COBBLER: He ran my daughter down with a wagon.
CHIMNEY SWEEP: He constructed an elaborate booby trap outside our front door that decapitated my wife. It looks like he put a lot of effort into it.
MAYOR: We um we mustn't let these incidents, however deeply disturbing, fuel our rage. I for one will embrace him as a neighbor.
Puts hand on the Monster's shoulder.
Rips the Mayor's arm off and starts beating him with it.
DR. FRANKENSTEIN: You didn't just touch him, did you?
