    BILLY
    Morris called me this morning.
    Seems he’s got himself a new
    group called Vanity Six. You
    know anything about them?

    PRINCE
    (a beat)
    No.

    BILLY
    He tells me they’re great.
    Thinks I’ll be interested.
    That’s cool, but now I’ve got
    a problem.

    PRINCE
    What’s that?

    BILLY
    I book three acts — I can’t
    afford four. If they’re as
    good as Morris says they are,
    one of you will have to go…

    Suddenly a HORN BLARES off screen.
    Billy looks up — a BEAUTIFUL BABE in a
    black BMW waves–

    BILLY
    Go around the block!

    The Babe pulls into the flow of traffic-

    BILLY
    It won’t be The Time —
    they’re playing backup to
    Vanity. So it’s either you or
    the Modern Aires.

    What would You do in my
    position?

    Prince has a sinking feeling in his gut–
