Therapist: Just to make it very clear — what happens here always stays highly confidential.
Colonel Mustard: Maybe we can write it on little cards and slide them into a sealed envelope in the middle of the game board?
Miss Scarlet: Oh will you just get a Clue? This isn’t about fun and games. That’s not why we’re here.
Therapist: Well maybe you can tell your husband the reason you ARE here, Miss Scarlet. What’s bothering you?
Colonel Mustard: Wait! Why does she get to go first?
Therapist: Check the rulebook. It’s right there in black and white. Miss Scarlet always goes first.
Miss Scarlet: Yes, that’s just the way I roll.
Colonel Mustard: Well this time, I’m making the first move. You’re just a little slut, wearing your slinky red dress all the time, with your long skinny cigarette holder. I see the looks Mr. Green gives you and I could just kill him for what he’s thinking.
Miss Scarlet: Did you hear that? You’re a witness to his threats.
Therapist: Please leave me out of this dangerous game you people play.
Colonel Mustard: Is it a crime to want my wife to be monogamous?
Miss Scarlet: When we go home tonight, we’ll sit down and talk this over in The Lounge.
Therapist: Wow. I’ve never known anyone with an actual room called The Lounge in their home.
Miss Scarlet: Never mind that. His fly-by-night behavior is for the birds.
Colonel Mustard: You leave Mrs. Peacock out of this. I knew you’d find a way to drag her into our personal affairs.
Miss Scarlet: You mean your affairs. She’s already very involved, I suspect.
Colonel Mustard: You should suspect. Because you ARE the prime suspect.
Therapist: Folks, settle down. My recommendation is you go back home and host a fun Murder Mystery Party. You know, your guests come dressed in costume, you put out lots of . . .
Colonel Mustard: Weapons.
Therapist: I was going to say appetizers.
Miss Scarlet: We’ll need a sharp knife for the cheese.
Therapist: My goodness, what’s wrong with you people? I think no matter how you toss the dice, it’s safe to say your marriage is over.
Colonel Mustard: The romance is dead. She killed it.
Miss Scarlet: You’re the one with the guilty conscience. You should turn yourself in; it would shorten your prison time.
Therapist: But if he goes straight to jail, how would I collect my $200 hourly fee? We could take a ride on the Reading railroad to a bank. Or you can take a Chance from the Community Chest?
Colonel Mustard: Can’t you see her community chest is already on display in that low-cut dress? Listen, I don’t know what game you’re playing right now, but deal us out. There are a million therapists in town. You don’t have the Monopoly on Couples Counseling, you know.
Receptionist: Sorry to interrupt but your next appointment is here, those two inventive male siblings.
Therapist: Please tell the Parker Brothers, I’ll be right with them.
This was the third in a series of shorts I am creating wherein Famous Fictional Couples see a Marriage Counselor. Stay tuned for more. And please leave me a comment if you’d like to request an iconic pair rush to a shrink!
If one was to pipe in music would that too be a crime? That sound like a tough couple to counsel always wanting to break the rules or someones neck. I have a feeling they may be on the final role of the dice.
I am laughing my head off. Can I share it on facebook?
Of course!! And thank you.
How much fun!
Once again our witty writer Stephanie has made her mark. She has allowed her reader to get in the game by providing humor and wit to her masterful piece. You don’t need to bash her over the head with a candlestick to get her message across and she is certainly clued in on this one. Thats the thing about Stephanie is you give her enough rope and she knows how to add the right amount of twists and turns to make her articles entertaining and fun. Our mistress of mystery and fun strikes again.

My favorite clever commenter strikes again!! Thank you, your puns make my day!
I’m guessing that Colonel Mustard found out about that affair Miss Scarlet is having with Rhett Butler. Am I right or am I right? By the way, I wrote a story featuring Inspector Colombo and Mrs. Fletcher from Murder She Wrote:
The last time you did this, you inspired me to do one with Sandy and Danny, and Jack and Mrs. Sprat. I would have loved to make it work for Morticia and Gomez but they are so funny already, I didn’t think I had anything to offer. Do you?
Love these couple sessions!
Thanks so much – – they’re a blast to write!
