(GK: Garrison Keillor; SS: Sue Scott; TR: Tim Russell; FN: Fred Newman; MT: Mark Thompson)

GK: ……this portion of our show brought to you by Bella Amorosa, the pizza of passionate romance.

MT: (O SOLE MIO)
It comes with sausage
And mozzarella
And that is why
They call it Bella----
It knocks your socks off
And your pants.
It is the pizza
Of romance!

MT: I know it's wrong! But I can't help it! I love you! I'm wild about you!

SS: But Frank---- I'm your child's teacher! Her Sunday School teacher!

MT: I don't care! I'm crazy about you!

SS: It's so utterly wrong. And yet----

MT: Say you'll go!

SS: I'll go!

(KNOCKS ON DOOR)

MT: Who is that?

SS: My husband!

MT: Pastor Swanson??? Oh my gosh…….(DOOR OPEN)

TR: Hi there. How you two doin? You look like you're dancing---

MT: Doreen and I are in love, Pastor Swanson!! We're flying to Paris!! This afternoon!!

TR: Paris. Wow. That's great. You go right ahead and have a great time. Sorry I can't give you a lift to the airport but the power's gone out.

SS: The power's out? Again???

TR: The freezer's starting to thaw, and I gotta get the kids clothes dry so they can go to music camp.

SS: They're going today??? I forgot.

TR: Yeah, and your mom is arriving tonight.

SS: Oh my gosh. Mom. That's right.

TR: But if you want to go to Paris, you go right ahead. But I'm afraid you're not gonna be able to use your car there. The tree fell on it. The one that knocked out the power line.

MT: Dorene---- come ---- I'll call a cab----

SS: I don't know what to do.

TR: How about we have a pizza?

MT: (O SOLE MIO)

If your life meets a
Roadblock, please
Try our pizza
With extra cheese.

Bella Amorosa
