    dear.

    They savor their drinks — Morris’
    fervor grows by leaps and bounds–

    MORRIS
    Jerome, uh, get your pad and
    pencil, I think it’s gonna be
    kinda right. If my judge of
    character is correct, it’s
    going to be about loving
    tonight.
    (a beat)
    Stop me when I get to
    seventeen.

    Jerome places a pad by his side, pencil
    at the ready. He settles the Caddy to a
    cruising 55 — Morris looks deeply into
    Vanity’s eyes–

    MORRIS
    Excuse me, baby…I bet you
    didn’t know I had a piece of
    this restaurant, did you?
    (a beat)
    May I taste that?

    He takes Vanity’s drink, slurps a
    little, burps–

    MORRIS
    Huh, excuse me, that’s kind of
    weak…here, try mine.

    She does, and begins coughing violently-

    VANITY
    Good God!

    MORRIS
    Y’know…they say that saliva
    is an aphrodisiac.
    (a beat)
    You look so lovely tonight.

    VANITY
