[Newbies] Mophic scripts tiles vs textual code

I am writing some simple morphic scripts.  It would be convenient to  
use smalltalk directly, so I toggle the script to directly enter the  
code.  But I am having problems, as it is not working.  If I uses  
tiles to create a script and then toggle over to text mode, the  
script looks like this for script "showa":

	self setX: PolyZb getX.
	self setY: PolyZb getY.
	self setHeading: PolyZb getHeading.
	PolyZb hide.
	self show

I think when I type the script in directly it doesn't know how to  
reference PolyZb (a polygon object I created).  Any help?  How does  
this translation between morph object's name and the internal  
SmallTalk name happen?
