Gilda & Elliot IV
[ open on Elliot Gould at Hmoe Base, blowing bubble gum, as Gilda Radner appears in the background ]
Gilda Radner: Elliot? Um — can I talk to you for a second?
Elliot Gould: [ he nods] Go ahead.
Gilda Radner: Uh — I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and I’ve come to the decision, uh, that you and I could be very happy together. [ Elliot blows another bubble ] Now, uh — we’ve spent some time alone, and we like the same things, and we’re compatible, and my mom really likes you. Snd I know it won’t be easy because we both have our careers, and I know you’ve been married before… but — and egos, I know egos can suffer a lot when both people are in the same business, but… I just want you to know that, no matter how big I become, you’ll never come to the point where you’ll be known as “Mr. Gilda Radner”. [ Elliot nods ,then shakes her hand ] So, uh — I know I’m hitting you with a lot, but, uh, you just think about it, okay?
[ Elliot is speechless ]
Gilda Radner: [ to the audience ] And we’ll be right back!
Elliot Gould: [ leans in and whispers ] Gilda, I didn’t say anything…
[ fade ]
