a throwbackto another era. turn of the century. there's something i must ask. i think i knowwhat it is. nobody is more surprisedabout alex and me than i am. i'm not too sure about that. my husband is gone, and alex has turned outto be a great companion. he's brought a certainjoie de vivre i don't thinki've ever felt.it's thrilling. that's the way joie de vivre is. lorraine, i'm happy that you've had a good experience... you're a mother. you know how i feel. let me assure you i have no designsupon alex beyond friendship. lorraine, you've been frank with us, so we'll return the favor.
i'm sorry. it's nothing personal. he's lettinghis schoolwork slide. he doesn't seeany of his old friends. we feel he should spend timewith someone his own age. well, you are his parents, and if you don't want meto see him, i will abideby your wishes. you don't have to leave. i'm afraid i do. good night. did we dothe right thing? we had to do something. da da da bum bum where's lorraine? she's gone. what do you mean,she's gone? we told her how we felt. oh! we didn't want herto leave. you didn't even give her a chance.
alex, we apologize.i'm very sorry. sorry? what good is sorry? you know, i'm a man. you have to treat melike a man, do you understand? you're going tohave to let go. dinner is served! of course, we can keep it warm. my lorraine hello? do you have glen gray'scasa loma orchestra playing tuxedo junction? i'm only playing sweet lorraine tonight, sir. we're into the second hour of the first annual sweet lorraine-a-thon.
