88e: Demi Moore / Johnny Clegg & Savuka
Beauty & The Beast
[ open on drive-in movie theater - Vincent and Catherine snuggling in the back seat of Vincent's cousin Bartholemew's car ]
Vincent: I promise you, Catherine, as soon as we buy the food, I will return to your side. Farewell for now. [ steps out of car and walks off ]
Catherine: Don't be long, my love.
[ pan to full view of car - Jennifer Bartholomew in the front seat ]
Bartholemew: I might have to help Vincent carry the food, so.. okay.. I'll be back.. [ exits car and follows Vincent ]
Catherine: So? Come on, Jennifer, what do you think? We didn't
drive all the way out here just to see the movie! What do you think of him?
Jennifer: Batholemew? He's okay.. I guess..
Catherine: [ sighs ] Oh, I think he's wonderful. He's so sweet and intelligent, and I think he likes you-ou!
Jennifer: Oh, that's nice.
Catherine: Yeah. You know, Bartholemew's a lot like Vincent - his beauty is inside, in his soul. And that's where you must look.
Catherine: You know, sometimes I'm amazed at Vincent's wisdom and inner calm, it's so inspiring.
Jennifer: Yeah, it sounds inspiring.. Listen, I really
appreciate you trying to set me up with a boyfriend, but.. I-I-I don't
want to ruin your night. I saw a bus stop back there, I think I'll
Catherine: No. No.
[ Vincent and Bartholemew return with the snacks ]
Vincent: [ to Bartholemew ] Oh.. uh, could you get the door, please?
Catherine: Here, let me take that. [ reaches for the trays ]
Vincent: Oh, would you please, darling? Thank you so much. [ steps into the car ] Let me just walk past you here.. [ sits down ] For a minute, we were lost. But the beauty in this car was our beacon.
Catherine: No, Vincent. What you saw was my love for you.
Vincent: Promise me, Catherine, that you will never extinguish that love. [ they embrace ]
Bartholemew: [ sits next to Jennifer ] Here are your nachos.
Bartholomew: You know, when I was at the cheese pump, I didn't know how much cheese you wanted.. so I put some on the nachos, and I put some on the plate.
Jennifer: Uh.. Thanks. How much do I owe you?
Bartholomew: Well.. it was 80 cents for the Coke.. $1.50 for the
nachos.. but, maybe I should pay..?
Jennifer: Uh.. no. I would really rather you didn't. [ hands him some money ]
Catherine: [ still in the embrace ] It feels so good with your arms around me. Vincent. You are everything to me.
Vincent: Without you, my love, there is no me.
Bartholomew: [ turns to Jennifer ] This tastes like Diet - I think it's yours! [ thrusts the cup toward her ]
Jennifer: [ startled ] Oh.. oh.. oh, okay..
Vincent: Hey, you two. How's everything in the front seat?
Vincent: No one's watching the movie, I hope! [ laughs ]
Catherine: You guys should be getting to know one another, huh?
Vincent: Bartholemew, entertain the lady.
Catherine: Yeah! Jennifer, did you know that Bartholomew knows a lot about the city's sewers?
Jennifer: Uh.. no. He never mentioned that..
Bartholomew: Well, yeah.. the sewers. That's where I live.. right? So.. you know, I use them to get around a lot, so.. well, you know, it's funny.. but you learn a lot about the city that way.
Vincent: [ pleased ] There you go!
Bartholomew: Okay, uh.. I'll show you. Where do you live?
Jennifer: Uh.. the East 60's.
Bartholomew: Yeah, but where exactly?
Jennifer: Uh.. 62nd and 3rd.. 202 E. 62nd.
Bartholomew: [ thinking ] Oh, yeah.. there are a lot of toilets in that building!
Vincent: I think we should retire, and leave these two to
their privacy. But first.. Jennifer, would you mind turning down the
speaker? Bartholomew, why don't you try to find 102-FM? Let's get a
little mood music going..
Catherine: [ grabbing Vincent ] Come here, you!
Vincent: I can think of nothing I'd rather do! [ growls
playfully, as they make out in the back ]
Bartholomew: [ fumbling for something to say to Jennifer ] So, uh.. do you ski?
Jennifer: Look, um.. I-I-I gotta go.. I forgot.. there was some.. "stuff".. I was supposed to get..
Bartholemew: Oh, alright. When can I see you again?
Jennifer: Don't do that. That's not.. let's just let it go.. I
can get a bus, and.. uh.. oh, well, uh.. okay. And listen, uh.. don't call me. Okay? Bye. Sorry. [ exits car and runs away ]
Vincent: [ lloks up and notices Jennifer gone ] Hey, pal? Where'd Jennifer go?
Bartholomew: She had to get some "stuff"!
Vincent: Oh, really?
Catherine: Well, come on. What did you think of her? Isn't she pretty?
Bartholomew: Yeah, she's pretty.
Vincent: Pretty isn't the word, Cousin. She's a doll!
Catherine: Mmm, she's the kind of girl you could have a lasting love with..
Bartholomew: [ miffed ] Shut up! Just shut up, okay! Just
Catherine: Geez.. no problem.
[ Vincent and Catherine return to making out, leaving Bartholomew alone in the front seat ]
