    …..Level 42

    JIMMY BRESLIN, still dressed as Auric Goldfinger from the previous sketch but without the blazer or wig, stands on home base.

    Jimmy Breslin: Ladies and gentleman — Level 42!

    [ Breslin points his entire right arm to the musical stage and faces it. The camera slowly pans over to LEVEL 42 (composed of lead vocalist/bassist Mark King, keyboardist Mike Lindup, guitarist Boon Gould, drummer Phil Gould, guest saxophonist Krys Mach and guest vocalist Annie McCaig) begin playing “Something About You”. Breslin stands at home base motionless. Before the camera gets away from any view of home base, a stage hand motions for Breslin to come backstage. Breslin scurries off. King plays the opening bass riff over and over. ]

    Level 42: [singing]“Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh”

    Mark King: [singing]“How
    How can it be?
    That a love
    Carved out of caring
    Fashioned by fate
    Could suffer so hard
    From the games
    Played much too often
    But making mistakes
    Is a part
    Of life’s imperfections
    Born of the years
    Is it so wrong
    To be human after all?”

    Level 42: [singing]“Born into the stream
    Of undefined illusion
    Those diamond rings
    They can’t disguise the truth”

    Mark King/Level 42: [singing]“That there is something about you,
    Baby, so right
    I couldn’t be here without you,
    Baby, tonight”

    Mark King: [singing]
    “If ever our love
    Was concealed
    No one can say
    That we didn’t feel
    A million things
    And a perfect dream of life
    Fragile but free
    We remain
    Tender together
    If not so in love
    It’s not so wrong
    We’re only human after all”

    Level 42: [singing]“These changing years
    They add to your confusion
    Oh and you need to hear
    The time that told the truth”

    Mark King/Level 42: [singing]“Because there’s something about you,
    The way you are so right
    I couldn’t live without you
    (I couldn’t live without you)
    Baby, here tonight”

    Level 42: [singing]“Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh,
    Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh”

    Mark King: [singing]“And that there’s something about you, yea”

    Level 42: [singing]“Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh”

    Mark King: [singing]“And I couldn’t live without you, tonight”

    Level 42: [singing]“Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh”

    [The audience cheers and applauds. Mark King smiles and nods on behalf of the band. Dissolve to Edie Baskin’s portrait of Level 42’s four main members — posing on the main floor at the center of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.]FADE OUT

    [ open on Tracy and Dana talking in a kitchen. Dana is seated, as Tracy pours another cup of coffee. ]

    Tracy: The main thing is to give yourself a little slack, Dana. [ she sits at the table ] You can’t expect to solve all of the world’s problems by yourself.

    Dana: I know – you’re right, as usual. But, you know.. boy.. I really am glad I have you to listen to my problems, because I’d be in bad shape if it wasn’t for you.

    Tracy: Oh, come on!

    Dana: No, really! You know, you have such a great outlook on life.

    Tracy: Well, thanks.

    Dana: And, now, what happens when you have a problem? Do you have a friend that you can talk things over with?

    Tracy: A friend? [ sentimental piano music begins to play ] Yes, I suppose you could call him a.. “friend.” In fact, I have to say he’s the best “friend” I’ve ever had.

    Dana: Oh, that’s great! Your friend, uh, does he live here in town?

    Tracy: Yes, in a way, he does live here in town. You might even say he’s been around here longer than you or I have.

    Dana: Ohhh, sounds like an older guy.

    Tracy: Yes, I.. suppose you could say he’s old in years, and I guess some people might even say he’s old-fashioned or behind the times, but.. you know something? Sometimes I find the things he says are just as timely as today’s newspapers.

    Dana: I’d like to meet your friend. Where does he live?

    Tracy: Oh. I bet you’ve walked by his.. “house” many times without even realizing it. In fact, my “friend” has lots of.. “houses” all over the world.

    Dana: [ impressed ] Ohhh, sounds like a rich guy.

    Tracy: Rich? Oh, I suppose he’s rich, in a way. But, in another sense, he has no use for gold or silver —

    Dana: Well. I’d like to meet your friend sometime, to talk to him.

    Tracy: I try to talk to my “friend” at least once a day. And, you know, it makes me feel better. Maybe you’d like to join me today.

    Dana: [ excited ] Oh! Oh, sure, but.. I’d have to change. You know, I’m not really dressed up.

    Tracy: You know, I have a funny feeling my “friend” won’t mind at all! [ a knock is heard at the door ] Huh? He’s here early today!

    [ Tracy stands, as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame enters through the kitchen door ]

    Dana: Hello there!

    Tracy: Dana, Colonel Sanders – Colonel Sanders, Dana!

    Dana: Hi!

    Colonel Sanders: Hi.

    Dana: Oh, Tracy’s given me a really big build-up about you!

    Colonel Sanders: Well, it’s an honor to meet you, Dana. Oh, what did she say, I’m Superman and Phil Donahue all rolled up in one?

    Tracy: [ rubs Colonel Sanders’ shoulder ] Oh, well, you are, aren’t you?

    Colonel Sanders: Well, well, I’m relaly just a good listener. That’s so rare these days. Uh.. so, Dana, uh – uh – what’s your name? [ Billy Martin breaks character ] Hey, can we do this over? I think I can do it —

    Joan Cusack: [ breaks character ] Billy, Billy! Billy, you’re drunk!

    Billy Martin: I had two beers!

    Danitra Vance: [ breaks character ] Oh, you promised, Billy!

    Tracy: Oh, Billy, how could you do this?! Not to us, but to yourself?!

    Billy Martin: [ defensive ] I just had two beers!!

    Tracy & Dana: Ohhhh!!

    [ Joan and Danitra stomp off the set, as Billy looks dumbfounded behind his Colonel Sanders make-up ] [ Lorne Michaels storms onto the set ]

    Lorne Michaels: Billy, that’s it! You can’t do live television! You’re blowing cues all night – you’re fired! Outta here! [ storms away ]
