BE KIND, REWIND ACT 1 SCENE 1 The Scene opens in a video store FRANKIES FLICKS. Joan is standing behind the counter sorting out a few videos. She stops and goes over to the window and looks out. JOAN (Picking up the telephone, she dials a number) Oh hello Frank it's Joan. . . . no. . . it's dead. . . . .The snows getting worse by the minute. It looks like we're in for a bad storm. . . . I think we should close early tonight Frank. . . .no . . . Oh, I understand that Frank, but. . . I don't think the buses are running. . . .right. . . .right . . . . oh right. . . .alright Frank . . . I'll stay open, but I don't think David needs to come in. . . .okay, I'll call him. . . bye Frank. (She dials another number) Hello, Mrs Marshall? It's Joan here from Frankies Flicks . . . .yes it is bad out isn't it. . . actually that's why I'm calling. Can you please tell David not to bother coming in tonight, it's so quiet. . . Oh. . . oh really. . .oh what a shame, I just missed him. Well I'll send him home when he gets in . . . yes. . .oh right. . .right. . . oh really. . . migraine. . . blood clot. . . (She produces a bell from behind the counter and rings it) Oh, someone just come in, I must run. I'll talk to you later Mrs Marshall. . .bye bye. (She dials another number) Mike. . . it's me. . . your wife! I'm just calling to let you know I'm here till closing. . . Yes Mike, I know you're aware of what time I finish, but there's a bad storm out there tonight and I asked Frank if maybe. . . . I'm sorry I woke you. . . .no Mike, there's no other reason why I called. . . .bye. (She replaces the receiver and continues to sort out returned videos. The door opens and a very snowy David comes in.) DAVID (Quoting) Winter, slumbering in the open air, wears on it's face a dream. . . .of spring, ciao. JOAN Oh, you made it. DAVID No, Groundhog Day staring Bill Murray. JOAN I don't think I saw that one. DAVID What! Like, It's awesome. Comedy section number seven eighty four. You should take it home tonight. JOAN I tried calling you. Tell you not to bother coming in because of the weather. Frank said he wants us to stay open but to tell you not to come in. It's dead tonight. DAVID My sister gave me a ride and I'm here now. JOAN So, are you going to stay?. . .because I don't mind if you want to go. It's dead anyway. DAVID Yeah, you said. . . . .do you want me to leave? JOAN (Embarrassed) Well, no, of course not. . . I'm just telling you what Frank said. You can stay if you like.. . or leave. DAVID (Quoting) I'll soon be leaving for the planet Mongo in a rocket ship of my own design. JOAN Sorry? DAVID Flash Gordon. . . original movie. No, I'll stay. After all . . . . (Quoting) I've gotten so far away that leaving is just a formality, Malcolm. The Mean Season. . . Mariel Hemingway. . .great tits. (She looks at him in disgust) Sorry. JOAN Very well! You've made the effort to get here, so you may as well stay now. I don't really know what we can do though. DAVID We could always like, watch a movie. (A feeble attempt at humour) JOAN (She doesn't get it) Yes, I suppose we could always do that. DAVID (Taking off his coat and putting on his uniform) So, old Frankie wants us to stay open tonight despite the storm of the century then. JOAN He said there could be lots of customers tonight because of the weather being so bad.. But I've not had anyone in for well over two hours now. DAVID And I doubt we will! Maybe the odd Eskimo. Hey, if an Eskimo came in what would he rent? JOAN Is this a joke? Because I'm not very good at jokes. . . DAVID No, it's not a joke. Like, just say an Eskimo came in here tonight to rent a movie to take back to his igloo, what would he rent? JOAN (Making herself busy) I don't know. . . . I've never really thought about what Eskimo's would rent. DAVID (Staring at her in disbelief, he then turns away and shakes his head.) (Sarcastically) Oh, this is going to be a fun night. JOAN There's no need to be sarcastic with me. I get enough of that at home without having to listen to it here too. DAVID I'm sorry, I was just trying to. . .lighten up the situation a little. . .It was just a game. JOAN I'm not much good at games either. DAVID I thought I'd like, try to relieve some of the tension. JOAN (Defensive) Tension! What tension? DAVID Alright. . .my mistake again, no tension here. (He starts to busy himself) (Pause) JOAN (Takes a second and thinks) Frosty The Snowman. . . (David looks at her) Frosty The Snowman. . . . what an Eskimo might rent. DAVID White Christmas. JOAN Snow White. DAVID Nanook Of The North. JOAN Summer Holiday. DAVID (confused) Summer Holiday? JOAN Well, yes. If I lived in all that snow I think I would want to watch a movie about sunshine and green fields and sparkling blue water. . . (He stares at her, she looks away embarrassed) I told you I'm not very good at games. DAVID (Going over to her) No. . no. .you're right. Summer Holiday, that's a good old English film isn't it? If I was an Eskimo I'd like, want to watch sunny movies all day long. (Quote) I stole you! I will keep you! Before the sun sets you will come willingly to my arms. JOAN (She looks into his eyes not aware that he was quoting.) I will? DAVID The Conqueror, John Wayne. JOAN (She walks away embarrassed again) Oh, yes, of course. DAVID So, who's sarcastic to you at home, your kids? JOAN What? Oh no, they're good kids. Spoilt rotten, but good kids. Besides they're both away at school right now. Sharon's at U of T and Paul's at McGill. DAVID It's hubby who's sarcastic then. JOAN (Indignant) Excuse me! Mind your own business. DAVID You brought it up. JOAN And I'll. . . .bring it down. You're a saucy young man for your age, you are. (She sits) DAVID Saucy? Is that like, a good thing? JOAN No, it's not a good thing. It means someone who is young and rude. DAVID (Walks over to her) Like a naughty little boy you mean? JOAN That's exactly what I mean. DAVID (He lays over the counter next to her) You'd better spank me then. JOAN (Shocked) Oh David! Get down! DAVID (Laughter) Come on spank the naughty boy. JOAN (Seeing the lighter side she playfully pats him and pushes him off) Get down. . . (He falls on the floor and they both laugh) Get up. . .someone might come in. DAVID Get down. . .get up, Like, make your mind up. (They are still laughing) (Quote) Yes, yes, You must give us all a good spanking. Monty Python And The Holy Grail. Another good limey movie! JOAN (Getting up) Whatever would anybody say if they should walk in! And if Frank should come. . .well! DAVID He'd say "my turn" JOAN Yes, I think he would. (Goes over to look outside) Snows not letting up. I bet we wont get anyone in tonight. DAVID Good! Do you want a drink? JOAN Yes, I think a cup of tea would be really nice. (She goes to walk into the back room to make it) I'll make it. DAVID TEA! Not tea! JOAN Well, I don't usually drink coffee at night, but I suppose once isn't going to kill me. (She continues to prepare it) DAVID (Sarcastic) Ooooh coffee!. . . you daredevil you.. . . (Quoting Jim Carrie) Alrighty then! Wait here. . . . (Quoting Arnold) I'll be back! (He goes into the back room) JOAN I said I'll make it. (She goes back behind the counter. Calling to him in the back room) I think I will put a movie on. Anything in particular you'd like to watch? DAVID (Coming out of the room) How about Whiskey Galore. JOAN (Looking at the titles book) That's an old one. Do we have it? DAVID Nineteen forty two. . . .Classics. . . number 325. JOAN Oh yes, here it is. . . .how it is David that you know so much about movies. DAVID (Coming up behind her and bringing out a bottle of whisky) Supreme intelligence! Here you are. JOAN (Shocked again) Where did you get that? Put it away! DAVID (Opening it) Oh, I intend to. JOAN (Flustered) David! Bringing alcohol onto the premises is strictly forbidden! You know how Frank feels about it. DAVID Yes, I do know. This is his whisky!. . . (Pours some into two cups, hands her one and knocks his straight back.) (Quote) Here's looking at you kid! (He almost chokes) JOAN That'll teach you. What do you mean, this is his whisky? Frank doesn't drink, where did you find it? DAVID (Recovering) Behind the poster box, he always keeps his supply there. Wow! That's strong stuff. JOAN And what's he going to say when he discovers you've been drinking his. . . .his supply? DAVID What can he say? We're not supposed to know about it, remember!. . .drink up. (He pours himself another) JOAN I will not! DAVID Prude! JOAN I'm not a prude. . . .and I'm not a thief. DAVID I'll replace it tomorrow. . .we're just borrowing it. JOAN No. DAVID Spoilsport. JOAN I don't like whisky. DAVID (Getting a can of pop out of a cabinet, opening it an pouring it in her cup) Here, try it with this. (Looking at her) Come on, Joan. . . Like, I hate drinking alone. JOAN You shouldn't be drinking at all. I doubt if you're even old enough to drink. . . . and I'm not a prude! (He stares at her. She picks up the cup and drinks it back) There! Satisfied? DAVID (Quote) What satisfaction canst thou have tonight? Romeo and Juliet. Leonardo Dicaprio (He takes another drink, this time he takes it easier) JOAN No, William Shakespear! DAVID Was he in it? JOAN He wrote it! . . . .Well, You're not old enough to know who William Shakespeare is, are you old enough to drink? DAVID I know who Shakespeare is . . .I'm twenty one. JOAN (She pours him and herself another, and hands him the cup) Bottoms up! (They knock them back, she looks outside and almost chokes) Oh no! It's him . . . DAVID Frank? JOAN No, it's that man. . .you know, who rents THOSE movies. The sex ones! DAVID (Going over to look out) What, Pervert Pete. . . .It is! Pervert Pete, come to get his Friday night jolly movie. JOAN Oh you serve him David! DAVID I'm not serving him. . . (He locks the door and rushes behind the counter and hides) JOAN What are you doing? DAVID Quickly! Hide, he's coming. . . JOAN (She rushes over to him) You can't do that. DAVID You'd better duck down. . . . JOAN (She ducks down next to him) (Whisper) Oh. . .I can't believe we're doing this. (There is the sound of someone trying the door) DAVID (Can hardly control himself) Sh! (There is a knock at the door) JOAN (Whisper) He's knocking. . .he knows were here. DAVID No he doesn't, it's a knock of desperation! JOAN (Goes to get up) I'd better let him in. DAVID (Stops her) You can't. . .what would he think if we should pop up from behind here?. . . (There is the sound of a couple of movies going into the return slot) He's dropping off his movies. (He sneaks a look out) He's leaving. (Joan looks too) JOAN I can't believe I just hid from a customer! What if he tells Frank? DAVID He's not going to tell Frank. . .don't be so paranoid! JOAN I'm not paranoid! DAVID (Quote) Your dads a paranoid nitwit. . .for the simple reason that he's a paranoid nitwit. My Girl 2. . Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd. . .he's Canadian you know? JOAN I don't care. DAVID (Quote) You really "don't care" about anybody or anything except yourself, do you? JOAN (Not realizing that he's quoting) And you're a little shit! DAVID No. . I was quoting! A movie! Leap Of Faith. . nineteen ninety two. It's Canadian! JOAN Oh! Well you have to warn me when you're quoting stuff. DAVID (Flabbergasted) Joan! I'm shocked! JOAN I. . . . thought you were saying that to me. DAVID Say it again? JOAN Say what? DAVID You little Shit! JOAN No! DAVID It sounds so much more refined when spoken with an English accent. (Quote in English accent) Perhaps you would like me to wash you dick for you, you little shit! Sir John Gielgud in Arthur. . . .you know. . .Dudly moore. JOAN That's an interesting parody! You and Arthur. DAVID Why do you say that? (Handing her a cup of whisky) JOAN Both are spoilt little rich boys who drink too much. (Pushing the cup away) No thank you. DAVID (Serious) That's hitting a little below the belt isn't it? JOAN I'm just giving back what I got from you. DAVID No you're not. I never called you names or insulted you. JOAN (Looking at him and realizing that he's little upset) I merely said spoilt little rich boy who drinks too much. DAVID (Quote) Play it again Sam! Not satisfied with saying it once, you have to repeat it. JOAN Which part is upsetting you, spoilt little rich boy or drinks too much? DAVID What part of frustrated, unhappy, old lady upsets you Joan? (Pause) JOAN (Starting to look busy again) I think we've both drank too much and should forget about the whole conversation and do some work around here. It might be a good time to do some extra stock taking, what do you think? DAVID I think I'm outa here. (He grabs his coat and leaves. Joan stands there for minute then goes over to pick up the movies that were dropped off. She takes them over to the counter. She then picks up the telephone an dials) JOAN Hello, Mike? How is everything?. . . .good . . .so, what you doing?. . . . oh, not much happening here either. Young David was here for a while, but he's gone now. . . . yes, till closing. . . . . okay. . . (Trying to sound funny) alrighty then!. . . I said "alrighty then". . . you know, Jim Carrie, Pet Detective. . . (Serious again) Oh! Sorry. I just called to say hi. . .no, I wasn't "checking up on you". Look Mike, I'm sorry for disturbing you, I'll be home at the usual time. . . no, I'll take a cab. . . . then I'll walk! Go back to your hockey game. Bye. (She replaces the receiver) (The door opens and David enters looking very dejected covered with snow.) DAVID No buses. JOAN I know. DAVID I'll call a cab. JOAN Well, I have to call a cab to get home myself, so why don't we share?. . . . You may as well stay now and rack up a few hours of pay. Just think of Franks reaction when he knows he has to pay us for being here and doing nothing. . . .and, I would appreciate the company. DAVID (Taking off his coat) (Quote) Then put some more coal on the fire Bob Cratchet, you do it before you dot another I. JOAN (Excitedly) Ooh! ooh! I know this one. . . .don't tell me. . . . A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim DAVID Very good! (Quote in English accent) And a Merry Christmas to you to, if it ain't out of keeping with the situation. JOAN Wonderful old classic. DAVID (Picking up the movies that Joan placed there) The best.. . . . Are these's pervert Petes movies? JOAN Yes. I'd better sign them in. . . (She types into the computer) DAVID Let's see now. . . . Hey, I think you're wrong about Pete! JOAN Why? DAVID He's not into sex movies, he's obviously a science fiction fan. JOAN (Taking them from him) Let me see. . . .My Alien, My Lover, and Space Girls From Uranus!. . .David! DAVID What? He's totally misunderstood. (Quote) Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's five year mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. . . . (holds up the movie) Uranus! (He laughs, Joan smiles) JOAN Sorry for saying what I said to you earlier. DAVID No sweat! I'm not a spoiled little rich boy you know . . . . I mean, like, my dad owns a bunch of places and stuff, but he doesn't hand money to me on a platter or anything like that. He believes that we have to earn our money like he had to, the hard way. JOAN He sounds like a good man with high principles. DAVID No, he's just cheap. You asked me earlier how I got to know so much about movies. . . .well like, that's all I've ever known. My parents were never home, so I'd spend all my time watching movies. Morning noon and night. I wanted to be a part of them. I knew they weren't real, but at least they would take me away from my own life for a while. . .hey, beats drugs! JOAN And drink! DAVID Let's not go that far. So, what kind of movies do you like? JOAN Oh, er' well. . . I like the classics, and films like Sleepless In Seattle, and As Good As It Gets. DAVID Ya typical "chick flicks" lovey dovey films. JOAN How about you? DAVID The Terminator. . . Aliens one and two. . . . Dead Presidents. . . . war movies in general. JOAN Ya typical "guy flicks" action killing films. I bet you like the odd lovey dovey film David. DAVID Never. JOAN Come on. . . . .you can tell me. DAVID What? No! Leave me alone, I hate soppy love films. JOAN (Whispering) I won't breathe a word to anyone. DAVID (Quote) The life I was trying for is gone, and I'm feeling so darn hard for myself that it's hard to breathe. JOAN As Good As It Gets! There, see, now the only way I know that is because I've seen it several time . How would you know that without seeing it over and over again? You're not being honest with me. DAVID (Getting defensive) What. . . . I have not seen it over and over again . . . I saw it once. I just know quotes that's all. JOAN You can see a film once and remember it word for word? DAVID No, not word for word. . . .just certain saying, they kind of stick with me. JOAN That's amazing! You should go on the TV. DAVID Thank you. JOAN Well!. . . .I'm waiting. DAVID Waiting for what? JOAN Don't think you can dazzle me with your incredible powers of movie trivia. I want to know what film that wasn't an action or killing film, that you fell in love with.. . . .David. . . I'm waiting. . . DAVID Alright! God you sound like my teacher! There is one film. . . .but you have to promise not to tell anyone. JOAN (Crossing her heart) Cross my heart DAVID (He leans into her and talks low) My Grandmother used to put one particular movie on whenever I used to go and visit her. JOAN (Intense) Yes. . . . DAVID I've taken it home a few times since I came to work here. I'd like, wait until everyone was out and then put it on. JOAN Yes, what is it? DAVID I can't believe I'm telling you this. . . . . (He whispers it in her ear, She goes to say it but he puts his finger on her lips.) Sh! You don't know who could be listening. JOAN (Whisper) Wonderful choice. I won't breathe a word to anyone. You romantic little bugger you. DAVID Yep! Regular little stud I am. JOAN Talking of romance, do you have a girlfriend? DAVID Yeah. . .well no. . . yeah. . .kind of. JOAN What's a "kind of" girlfriend? DAVID She's not really my girlfriend, more of a friend really. I've not like, asked her out or anything. JOAN Why not? DAVID Well. Like. . . for one thing, she doesn't drive, and I don't drive, so going out on dates would be difficult. JOAN There's always public transportation. DAVID Now, how would that look, taking a girl out on a date and standing at the bus stop waiting for the bus to Armor hill.? JOAN That's what Mike and me used to do. DAVID Yeah, but that was. . . the olden days. JOAN Well, thank you very much. DAVID I don't mean it like that. It's just, not done that way anymore. And the other reason is like, she's already got a boyfriend. JOAN Now that reason I can understand. Why would you bother with her then if she's already seeing someone else? DAVID Because I like her, and besides, her boyfriend is seeing another girl. It's. . .complicated.. . .the nineties! JOAN Then give me the sixties! DAVID (Quoting) I never did drugs in the sixties. . I was an accountant. Hook. . .with Robin Williams. JOAN Well, if I were you, I'd find another sweet young thing who's life wasn't so "complicated" DAVID It's not easy you know. . . .meeting girls, and asking them out. JOAN I know it's not easy, it never has been, even in "the olden days" But a good looking, intelligent young man like you should have them lining up to go out with you. DAVID I know!! That's exactly what I think! (They both laugh) How about you? You're not exactly ugly. I bet you were like, a real babe when you were my age. JOAN (Embarrassed but flattered) Well, I did have my fair share of eligible young men calling on me. DAVID I bet you did. . . .so how come you ended up with a jerk. . . . (Realizing what he'd said) sorry!. . . what I mean is. . . JOAN Oh, don't apologize. I know how it must look to others. He does come across like a. . .jerk sometimes. . . (He looks at her) alright, most times! But he wasn't always like that. When I first moved here from England it was so hard. I was eighteen years old and felt very alone leaving all my friends and most of my family back home. That was until I met Mike. . . . he was twenty one too. Oh, he was the most handsome man I'd ever seen. Tall and muscular. He simply swept me off my feet. DAVID So what happened? JOAN Work, kids, loans, mortgages, time happened. Time can cruel sometimes. I think he still loves me, it's just that the spark seems to have gone out of it. DAVID Sparks don't last very long. Maybe you need to relight the fuse. (She stares at him, waiting) What? JOAN I'm waiting to hear from what movie you got that one. DAVID I didn't. . . that was me. JOAN David. . . I am impressed. . . .and I think you're right. His fuse is definitely in need of relighting!. . . .Mind you, It'll probably take a gallon of gasoline to do it. (They both laugh.) The last time I saw sparks in my house the kettle blew up. (They burst into laughter) DAVID You know, you are very funny when you let your hair down a little. JOAN (Recovering) Well I'm not usually like this. . it must be the booze. Quickly. . .pour me another. (They laugh again as he pours her a drink.) Here. . . I got one for you. . . (Quote) A toast, to my big brother George, the richest man in town. (She drinks it back in one drink) DAVID James Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life! JOAN Correct, for two hundred dollars and a year supply of potato chips. DAVID There is another girl, at school, who I like. . . .well, more than like really. JOAN What's her name? DAVID Shelby. She is drop dead gorgeous. JOAN Well have you asked her out? DAVID No. Every time I try to talk to her like, I end up making a fool of myself. JOAN What kind of things are you saying to her then? DAVID I don't know. . .things. JOAN Right. . . (Takes another drink) a little role playing here. I'll be. . .what's her name? DAVID Shelby. JOAN Shelby. . . .oh, Steel Magnolias. . . .Very sad film. . . anyway, I'll be Shelby and you be you. I'm at a dance, standing alone, and you look over and see me. . . .what do you say. DAVID (Reluctant) Oh, I don't know, I can't do it. JOAN Of course you can sweetheart. . . .come on (She pretends to be standing in a dance hall) Oh what a great tune, I wish someone would come over and ask me to dance. . . DAVID (He starts laughing) Joan. . . JOAN Oh I'm so lonely, why doesn't anyone want to dance with me?. . . DAVID (Quote) Hey baby, why don't ya come on over to my pad, we'll have a scotch and sofa. JOAN No, David. . .you're going to have to do better than that. DAVID (Quote) Excuse me, do you know if there are any personages of historical significance around here? JOAN (Going over to him) David, do you mind if I ask you a question? DAVID Fire away. JOAN Were you quoting lines from movies then? DAVID Yeah. JOAN Why? DAVID Because I always do when I have to talk to someone, especially a girl I like. JOAN I see. . .well this time, try it again, but don't quote . . .just be you. DAVID I can't. JOAN What do you mean you can't? You don't need the movies David. DAVID I do!. . . .It's like, . . . .easier when I use the stuff from movies. JOAN But they're not your lines, those lines belong to somebody else! Try it again but this time just be you. DAVID (Getting upset) I don't like being me!!. . . . When I try to be me. . .I . . .I get all mixed up. JOAN I get mixed up sometimes too when I talk to people. And I don't always like being me. But it's all I have. It's all any of us have. Just try it. . .please. (Pretends again to be waiting to be asked to dance) Here I am again, waiting. . . la. .la. . la . .la DAVID Hi. JOAN Oh, hi. DAVID Er. . . .hi. . . JOAN You said that already. DAVID I don't want to play this any more. . . (He rushes into the back room) JOAN David!. . .David. . . .David, I'm sorry love. . . (She goes back behind the counter. She then looks at the rack of films and goes over and takes one and puts it into the video and turns it and the TV on. (To herself) Fast forward. . . . . . (Calling again) David!. . .David please. DAVID (From the back room) What? JOAN David. . . . .I want to talk to you a minute . . . .will you come out here please. DAVID I'm busy. JOAN You're busy doing what? DAVID I'm cleaning the stock room. JOAN (She stops the tape) There!. . . . .David, I want to play something for you. DAVID I'm busy. JOAN Right! (She turns on the video and turns up the volume. It is the soundtrack to Gone With The Wind.) DAVID (From back room) Joan, that's not fair. . . (He comes out) JOAN What's not fair? DAVID I told you that in confidence. JOAN And it's still our little secret. There's no one else around. This just happens to be one of my favorite movies too.. . .Now, Try it again. . . You're Rhett and I'm Scarlet. You don't need the movie quotes just think of the music and relax.. . . . . (She pretends to be waiting again) DAVID Hello. . . . my names Dave.. . .and like er'. . . I have to admit that I've been standing over there and looking at you for a very long time. JOAN (Softly) Really. . . why? DAVID Well, I was standing there wondering what it felt like to dance with such a neat looking girl, and I've decided that the only way to find out was to come over and ask you. (He holds out his hand and she takes it. The music seems to get louder As they dance and she looks into his eyes. They stop dancing and they stare at each other. There is a long silent pause and they lean into each other and kiss. He then lets go and walks away. She doesn't move as if she's in a trance) DAVID Hey, that was cool! You're right, I didn't need the movie quotes or anything. It wasn't even like I was trying. I just knew what to say. What do think? JOAN (She starts to come back to life) Sorry? DAVID How did I do. . . okay? JOAN (Can hardly say it) Okay! DAVID (Going back over to her) Are you alright? . . . .you look kind of funny. JOAN No, I'm fine . . . (She moves, fanning herself) Is it kind of hot in here or is it me? DAVID I'm not hot. But I can turn the heat down if you like? JOAN Oh no, that's okay. . . .probably just a hot flash or something. DAVID Oh yeah, my mom gets them. You're a lot like my mom, you know. . . . she's real cool too. . . but you're cooler. JOAN (Back down to earth with a bump!) Thank you David. . .that's a nice compliment. (The sound of a horn is heard outside) DAVID (Looking out) I think it's your husband. . . . JOAN (Going over to look out) Mike!. . . .it is Mike. (She looks at her watch) Is it that time already? DAVID Yeah, it is.. . .I thought you were going to get a cab home? JOAN So did I. . . .I guess Mike must have decided to come and get me. DAVID In this weather!. . .he can't be all that bad eh? JOAN No, he can't be all that bad. DAVID (He looks outside again) Oh, here's my Dad, I guess he can't be all that bad either. JOAN I'd better turn this off. (She goes over and turns off the tape, then gets her coat) DAVID Don't forget Joan. . . . Be kind, rewind! JOAN I'll do it in the morning.. . .I'd better get going. DAVID (Quote in southern droll) If you go, where shall I go? What shall I do? JOAN (Quote) Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.. . . I'll see you tomorrow. (She opens the door) DAVID (Quote) After all. . . BOTH Tomorrow is another day. (They both exit and close the door behind them) The End.
