The New York Municipal Orphanage (Girls' Annex)
Molly : Mama! Mommy!
Pepper : Shut her up so I can sleep.
July : Molly, wake up and shut up.
Kate : Leave Molly alone.
July : You wanna make something out of it?
Pepper : Come on, July, beat her up.
July : Get her, Pepper!
Annie :(Shouting) Stop it!
Lay of July! If Hannigan wakes up, she’ll get sore.
It’s okay Molly. You were just having another nightmare.
Molly :I want my mommy and daddy.
Pepper : Uh, molly, we ain’t got mommies and daddies. And we ain’t ever gonna have them. That’s why we are called orphans
Annie :I’m not an orphan. My parents are alive, and they are coming to get me someday .
Molly : Yeah and Annie’s got a note that proves it.
Will you read it to me, Annie? Please…
Annie :(Reading a paper) “Please take good care of our little darling. Her name is Annie. She was born….”
July : Was born on October 28.
Orphans : We will be back to get her soon. We have left half of a silver locket around her neck and keep the other half, so that when we come back for her, you will know that she’s our baby! (laughing)
Annie : (Facing Pepper) Do you wanna sleep with your teeth inside your mouth or out?(yelling) Now get to sleep! I know these don’t mean anything to you, but they’re everything to me. They’re proof I got parents.
Tessie : Do you really think they are out there Annie?
Annie : Yap. And I’m gonna meet them someday.
A song “Maybe” by Annie
Pepper : Now what?
Annie : If my folks haven’t found me, I’m gonna find them.
Pepper : Again?
Annie : Pepper, watch out for Molly!
Kate : But what if Miss Hanigan catches you?
Annie : She won’t.
Ms.Hannigan : Boo. Trying to make a break…again.
(Annie showing her back) What the heck are you doing?
Annie : Are you gonna beat tar out of me?
Ms.Hannigan : Have I ever hit any of you?
Annie : No. But you’ve threatened. That’s worse.
Ms.Hannigan : I know (laughing).
Kid, if you think it’s bad in here, it’s lousy out there.
I’m doing you’re a favor by not letting you go.
Annie : (whispering)
Ms.Hannigan : What do you say?
Annie : I love you, Miss Hannigan.
Ms.Hannigan : I can’t hear you!
Annie : I love you, Miss Hannigan.
Ms.Hannigan : Rotten orphan.
Annie : I’m not an orphan! My parents left me with a note saying they’d come back for me.
Ms.Hannigan : (Laughing) That was 1922. This is 1933. You’re an orphan.
(Blowing Whistle) Rise and shine! Rise and shine!
Tessie : But it’s in the middle of the night.
Ms.Hannigan : Don’t you think I know that? Annie here tried to run away…again. So as a little welcome home party, you’re all gonna clean this dump till it shines like the top of the Chrysler Building. What do you say?
Together : We love you, Miss Hannigan.
Ms.Hannigan : And I love you. Now, scrub these floors. Strip them beds for the laundry man. Get to work! (shouting) Now!
