(SURF, BIRDS)

GK: Is this where your husband disappeared, Mrs. Rosewater?

SS (DEEP): I donít think so.

GK: If you donít think he disappeared here, then why are we here?

SS (DEEP) : Because I wanted to be here with you.

GK: Why?

SS (DEEP): I want to sing a duet with you.

GK: I donít sing, Mrs. Rosewater.

SS: Have a drink. Alcohol helps.

GK: I donít think so.

SS: Everybodyís got a song in their heart. Come on.

GK: Maíam, you called me to come and find your husband for you.

SS: I donít want to find my husband. I want you.

GK: Maíam—

SS: Sing ďAs Time Goes ByĒ — sing it.

GK: I donít know the words.

SS: Sure, you do.

GK: I donít.

SS: This .45 automatic says you do. (CLICK OF HAMMER, WHIR OF CYLINDER)

GK: You expect me to sing at gunpoint? (GUNSHOT) Okay. (SINGS)

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate

SS (SINGS): Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
As no one can deny


(BOTH) It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by,

TR: Okay, mister. Turn around. Real slow. Hands in the air. No funny business.

SS: Sheldon!

GK: This your husband?

TR: Right. And who are you?

SS: Heís a private eye, Sheldon. His nameís Noir. Guy Noir.

TR: How could you be attracted to a guy like that?

GK: What do you mean ďLike thatĒ? Like what?

SS: I thought youíd disappeared, Sheldon.

TR: I was hiding, waiting to see what youíd do without me around. And now I know.

GK: Look. It wasnít my idea.

TR: You were singing with her....

GK: If you think I was attracted to her, you are wrong.

TR: You had your arm around her waist....

GK: Briefly.....

TR: You were singing a love song.....

GK: If you think I did that because it gave me pleasure, you got another think coming.

SS: Shoot him, Sammy. Shoot him and throw him to the sharks.

FN: Put the gun down, Mr. Rosewater.

TR: Whoís that?

FN: Itís me. Your neighbor. Manny Verylow.

SS: Manny— what are you doing here?

FN: Iím taking you away, Angel Lips.

TR: The heck you are.

FN: She doesnít love you. She only married you for your culinary abilities. Come, Angel.

TR: Elaine?

SS: I canít help it, Sheldon. When he sings to me, I get all bumpy and trembly.

FN (SINGS): Oh donít you know I want to sing with you
I want to sing and do some other stuff too
And every evening when the red sun sets
Weíll sing duets, weíll sing duets. (BRIDGE)


TR: Thatís coming up next week on Guy Noir, Private Eye.
