Dyan’s Dream I

…..Dyan Cannon
…..Dan Aykroyd

Dyan Cannon: One of my favorite parts of being in the studio this week has been listening to the music of Leon and Mary Russell.

[ Dan Aykroyd walks up, wearing a dark trenchcoat and clutching the area by his neck ]

Dan Aykroyd: [ speaking hoarsely ] You know.. dreams really do come true, you know. [ Dyan laughs ] Drams really do come true —

Dyan Cannon: Dan —

Dan Aykroyd: And I’m a part of your dream now.

Dyan Cannon: Danny. It is not “a man comes up to me, and he is hoarse.”

Dan Aykroyd: Oh. It’s not?

Dyan Cannon: No, it’s not. It’s “a man rides up to me on a big, white horse.”

Dan Aykroyd: Well, I couldn’t hear that monologue backstage. You know what I mean? Uh.. Lorne was on the phone with Brian Epstein – I was listening in, you know? I’m just a guy looking for a little ray of California sunshine, if you know what I mean.

Dyan Cannon: Listen, that was really nice of you, though. I appreciate you trying.

Dan Aykroyd: Okay. [ exits stage ]

Dyan Cannon: Thank you. No, that was sweet. Okay! Now, Leon and Mary Russell.
