NICKY:

I used to drive a taxi.

DRIVER:

I used to be head of neurosurgery.

Big hospital in USSR. This

hospital, I'm not kidding.

NICKY:

Very big.

DRIVER:

I opened thousands of brains.

NICKY:

What did you find?

DRIVER:

Big mess every time.

NICKY:

I loved my taxi. Went twelve hours

nonstop. Stopped only to pee. I

peed under the Manhattan bridge.

Peed many times in parks and

playgrounds.

EXT. STREET CORNER

47th Street and Third Avenue. A man is dancing with a life-

size cloth doll. His tape player is on the sidewalk, playing

and instrumental version of "Beautiful Dreamer" and there is

a cigar box for donations. A few people look on from a

distance. The man wearing an old cutaway, with running shoes,

and the doll has long red tresses and wears a frilly gown.

Nicky emerges from a taxi at the corner and walks rapidly

past the dancing man.

Nicky crosses the courtyard to Buchanan Apartments.

INT. FOYER

JOANNA BOURNE reaching for the door. Joanna is fifty-ish,

handsome, stylishly dressed.

INT. BUCHANAN APARTMENT - SECONDS LATER

Nicky and Joanna embracing with wordless abandon.

They are in the hallway clutching each other, stumbling. The

walls on either side are hung with expensive art.

They grapple past the living room. Fleeting look at the

paintings by Longo and Fischl, a poster by the Guerilla

Girls.

The edge of the bedroom. Nicky is crawling into the room and

Joanna is hanging on to him, being dragged. They are fully

dressed except for one of Joanna's shoes.
