That sounds like what I did. Just to make sure, I tried again. I made a
new RectangleMorph, opened a viewer on it, and dragged out the script.
Then I made a new GoMorph, opened a viewer on it, got its tile, and
dropped in on the script. 

Maybe my problem yesterday was not dropping it on the Rectangle tile. I
dropped it right on there. Nothing happened to the script, except it had
the Go tile sitting on in. No matter where I dropped, no effect.

What's wrong?
