[ open on exterior, city street at night. Pan across to reveal a torn-shirted Stanley Kowalski stepping off of a streetcar line and staggering toward a row of apartments while clutching a can of beer. ]
Stanley Kowalski: [ glances upward ] Stellllllllaaaaa!!! Stelllllllllll-aaaaaaaaaaa!!![ a light turns on in a second-floor window ]
Stanley Kowalski: STELLLLLLLLLL-AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!![ Black Man steps out on second-floor balcony from window ]
Black Man: Hey, uh – listen, pal – there’s no Stella here.

Black Man: Look – look – look — you – you want Desire and Elysian Fields, right? Huh?

Black Man: Stanley.
Stella: Oh, I should have known! come on back to bed, huh? [ wraps her arms around him ]
