[ 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.

Stanley Kowalski: STELLLLLLLLLL-AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Black Man: Hey! Look, uh, I-I’m trying to tell you, baby – there’s no Stella here, uh —

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