pizza isn't all i had planned. oh, really? yeah. i was hoping you'd buy dessert. you silver-tongueddevil. that's right, weez. what do you say? after you inhalethe rest of this pizza, let's go out. we never goout anymore. we went to the willises' dumb party last night. that waslast night. this is tonight. two nights in a row? you're not getting any younger. we enjoy ourselves when we go out. you must admit you enjoyed the party last night. watching willisdive into a bowlof meatballs?
at least we met new people and heard some different conversation. it's alwaysthe same conversation. "margot, i got adorablehalstons at bloomingdales." "buffy, i loveyour new hair color. i've always admiredrhesus monkey red." it was a lot more interesting than that bash at the bowling alley. who could forget that brilliant banter? "hey, jefferson, can you get out a mustard stain?" "no problem." "can you get out a grass stain?" "no problem." "can you pay this check?"
that was sickening, george. yeah, the wayyou tell it. oh, and your distinguished colleague, bill ripkin, who tells the same old ridiculous joke over and over. "what is irish and stays out all night? paddy o'furniture." that's funny, weez. even you can'tmess that one up. bill ripkin is a snooze. a snooze? he opensbeer cans with his nose. and an idiot! i prefer meeting people like joe blake, tom's guest of honor. he's a writer. a sensitive, intelligent man. what goodis sensitive if you'restranded witha beer and no opener? how can you compare your foamy-nosed friend
he's a dunce! he said the dumbestthing to florence-- "will yougo out with me?" and he was lookingright at her. he'll be here any minute. be nice to him for my sake, for florence's sake, and for the sake of every bone in your body. why waste yourmoney on his book? it's an advance copy. it's not on sale until next month. good. i canthrow mine away before anybodycan buy one. you'd feel differently if you would just read it. it's warm, sensitive, emotional, and inspiring. put it by the john. i'll read itin installments.
i'm dying tosee your outfit. coming! thanks for the warning! how do i look? oh, florence,you look beautiful. you're reallydressed to kill. yeah, especially with your face uncovered. excuse me. there's no way i'll trade insults with you today. especially not with someone whose head should have "brunswick" stamped on it. or someone needing a ladder to reach the sidewalk. ok, you don't wantto exchange insults. just as long as that's understood. oh, mrs. jefferson,i'm so excited. i'm going out witha real live author! [doorbell rings]
you'll spoil his appetite. joe, you remember mefrom last night. how could i forget... "paddy o'furniture." feel free to use that in your new book. i know i told you this last night, but i really do admire your work. i started reading your novel, and i just loved it. let's see, how can i put this? please, florence, we're talking here. now, your opening passage was written beautifully! especially-- mrs. jefferson... i'm sorry, florence. you weren't saying anything, so i took up the slack. joe, say hello to your date. florence, you... you look wonderful! so do you.
our reservation is for 7:00. we're eating at a chinese restaurant close by. oh, chinese. that'sperfect for florence. this is the yearof the dragon. he's cranky. he has a sore neck. nothing serious? he got it trying to look normal-sized people in the eye. well, good night. good night. oh! don't do nothing i wouldn't do. oops! too late. you touched her. why do youbehave like that? it's charisma, weez. [doorbell rings] he's bringing her back already. the elevator had lights.
inviting us toanother stupid party? the answer's no!i'd rather die! in that case, how's tonight? come on in. thank you, louise. i wanted to returnthe necklace i borrowed. thanks so much. oh, you're welcome. how werethe hors d'oeuvres? you were eating them. it's hard discussing something that's disappearing at the speed of light. i had a greattime last night. i enjoyedmeeting joe blake. he was very charming. yes, especially for an ex-convict. an ex-convict? we didn't want to mention it. joe's trying to start fresh. ain't you afraid of having an ex-convict around? you're afraid when the toast pops up early.
joe is completely rehabilitated now. oh. but... but what? but what? but i felt strangewalking into the kitchen. was your bed moved out? no, not that. i went in and foundjoe alone with helen. it made me feelsomewhat uncomfortable. actually, i felt kind of uncomfortable, too. you thought he'd steal something? no, joeisn't a thief. oh. he's a murderer.
let's not panic. joe has paid his dues, served his time, and rehabilitated himself. tom's right. they're probably just having a pleasant meal. she's dead. i wish we could warn her. but how? where are they? wait. he said they were going to a chinese restaurant somewhere close by. there are25 of those. yes, but 16 of those serve cantonese food, four mandarin, and two hunan. that means only 3 out of the 25 are szechwan restaurants! so? last night, i observed joe at the hors d'oeuvre table. he loved the spicy rumaki. i wanted some,
tom! oh, i'm sorry, helen. that was a poorchoice of words. anyway, with joe'staste for spicy food, they're ata szechwan restaurant! the yellow pages. no need. i have theirtiny take-out menus in this wallet. tom, i'm almost proud of you. give me those. thank god a glutton is on our side. i bet chinese foodwould taste good if i couldget it in my mouth. you'll get the hang of these. i hope so. look at thatbeautiful vase.
yes. yes. that's a fine piece of work. it's a reproduction from the ming dynasty. how do you knowso much about everything? let's say for the last few years i've spent a lot of time alone... reading. i've neverfound the time. how do you do it? a time comes when a man sits down and says, "i'm setting aside five to seven years... to work on myself." you'requite a guy. and you're quite a woman. you're beginning to get the hang of those chopsticks. well, practice,practice, practice.
yes, they've got many nice things here. it's a good thing,or i'd starve. florence, you know, i.. i'd like to... tell you something about myself. phone call for florence johnston. me? i mean, again? it's getting soi can't go noplace. i just pickit up and talk? you could leave it down and talk, but the other party probably wouldn't hear you. merci beaucoup. i'll onlybe a moment. hello. florence, it's me. i'm coming right down. don't move. joe's killed before, and he'll kill again.
phone call from jacques cousteau? is something the matter? no. we're done eating. i'd like to be alone with you. you done?i ain't! i'd like toorder column "b" and make itvery well-done. florence, i think we've got to talk. talk? talk? i'd love to,but look who's here! uncle ling chow! hi, uncle ling.how are you? [speaking chinese] you won'tbe in the way.
joe, meet uncleling chow johnston. and uncle ling... this is joe blake. [speaking chinese] he's your uncle? he's one ofthe eastern johnstons. [speaking chinese] aunt fernetta?oh, she's fine. did you see an uglywoman with a killer? no. we ended that promotion-- "bring in ugly woman, killer eat free." are you a wise guy? no, old chinese proverb-- "wise maitre d' never insults a paying customer." here to eat? no! then scram. your head's blinding my customers. just for that, i'll never eat here! first we lose a little league world series, and now this? florence.
look what he did! george,that's the wayshe always looks. oh, my god! [speaking chinese] nice seeing you, too, uncle ling. tell cousin wong i said hello. i'm glad to see you. what am i saying? i'm glad to see you. if anybody's goingto kill florence, it's me! thanks, mr. jefferson. you liketo kill women. you couldn'tfind a woman tonight, so you pickon florence! i've tried to tell florence something. i don't want to hear! well, you're going to hear it. ok. how's the food?
oh, please don't kill me! what's the use? people hear you've been in prison, but they don't want to hear why. oh, mr. blake, wait. i want to hear what you wanted to say. if we die, i'm blaming you. i want to hear your story. so tell us, why did you rub out-- i mean, uh... what caused the disagreement? are you sureyou want to know? yeah, but you don't have to demonstrate. the woman i killedi loved very much. she wasa beautiful lady. and in many ways, she reminds me of florence. oh... i mean, oh.
so i could make a down payment on the house. the day i'd saved enough, i quit my nighttime job at the gas station, brought champagne home to celebrate. sounds justifiable to me. let's go. wait. anyway, i walk into the living room, nobody there. walk into the bedroom, they're hiding in the closet. my woman and another man. i flipped out! i never thought she'd do something like that. i shouldn't have, but i slapped her. she fell to the floor... hit her head against the bedpost... and that did it. i still can't believe it. but...that's what happened.
i wanted you to judge me for what i am, not for something i did and regretted. i can appreciate that, but how'ssomebody supposedto know you won't... go crazy again. the important thing is i know i won't. florence, if you have any questions, then you shouldn't see me again. well... thank you. thanks for a terrific evening. and if i scared you, i'm sorry. so long. joe. i'm sorry we judged you without knowing all the facts. we? uh-uh. look, my mind is wide open.
at least you madeyour peace with it. thank you for understanding. there are times when a person deserves a second chance. so if you'll give me one, i'd love having dessert with you. florence,thank you. i'd be honored. george,shouldn't we go? to prove there ain't no hard feelings, i'll pick up your check. thank you. check, please. [speaking chinese] whatever you say, sir. your check, sir. thank you. wait, two checks? chinese gentleman...
