Fragment from The Gentlemen's Gentlemen, crox-boek Nr 9, blz. 22-23:

POTTED PALM is now fully grown and
CHANDELIER spins in the air.
They are puppets.
A recording of their voices plays as they are manipulated through their limbs. The ACTRESS cannot hear them exactly but their thoughts are somehow connected with her own about herself. She looks down at her attire, she looks as if into a mirror, she wonders about her own physique.

CHANDELIER: This new one is no different than any other young hopeful. She's not pretty, not witty, not a musician, nothing mesmerizing about the way she moves, her clothes are unremarkable yet dissappointingly meticulous. (...)
POTTED PALM: But she carries herself with dignity! See how strong her calves are? (...)
