    PRINCE
    Yeah — the freak show.

    He walks off. She jumps off the pipe,
    follows.

    SIDE OF HOUSE

    as they emerge around the corner.
    Prince squats by a basement window,
    adjusts an old coal chute, then slides
    down it–

    VANITY
    Hey…

    PRINCE (O.S.)
    C’mon.

    She hesitates a moment, then slides down
    too.

    (47) INT. BASEMENT, PRINCE’S HOME — NIGHT

    He turns on a LIGHT, disappears into an
    ADJOINING ROOM. Vanity looks around
    amazed. She stands in a small ANTE-
    CHAMBER whose walls are covered with
    thick pads and foam.

    Colorful MOBILES hang suspended from the
    ceilings — various INSTRUMENTS lie
    about: a drumset, an electric guitar,
    and a small upright piano. A stereo and
    cassette player. are perched on a shelf,
    and two speakers are recessed into the
    walls. The entire room looks hand-
    built, the wood carefully painted, or
    stained.

    She peers through the doorway into the
    adjoining room. BLUE MOONLIGHT filters
    in through the casement windows.
    Various MURALS are painted on the walls,
    MOBILES are suspended from the ceiling.
    A bed sits in the middle of the floor, a
    vanity table and mirror nearby.
