[ SUPER: "Jan Hooks and Phil Hartman in: 'Love is a Dream'" ]

[ open on elderly Janice walking into a bank, let inside by Phillip the security guard. She sits at a table to examine the contents of her safety deposit box, one of which is a tiara. She places it on her head, and suddenly, she is young again. She is approached by a young Phillip, who takes her hand and begins to dance with her. ]

Phillip: [ singing ]
"Love is a dream, yet it's so real.
Hard to explain, just how you feel.
Deep in your heart, joy seems to dwell.
Like poets say, it's perfectly swell."


[ Janice dances with Phillip ]

Janice: [ singing ]
"In every step, of this old dance,
There is delight, love and romance.
If you are the one, give me the few,
And I am sure there's no one like you.
You are all I dream.
You are a part of my heart and esteem.
And since I've met you,
Now I know that dreams do come true."


[ they walk hand-in-hand between soldiers holding their swords up high ]

Phillip: [ singing ]
"Love is a dream, yet it's so real.
Hard to explain, just how you feel.
Deep in your heart, joy seems to dwell.
Like poets say, it's perfectly swell."


[ Janice returns to the table, takes off her trinkets, puts them back in the box, and leaves the safe. As she leaves, she turns around to see an older Phillip silently saying goodbye. She blows a kiss and departs, knowing that dreams do come true. ]
