VALET:

No one, sir. He'll be all right.

Poor man. He's a little unhappy, you

know.

He makes a sign indicating 'crazy,' and goes back inside the

house. The onlookers keep staring.

CUT TO:

INT. LANDING OUTSIDE OLD SALIERI'S SALON - NIGHT

The Cook is standing holding the candlestick in one hand,

the dish of cakes in the other. The Valet arrives, panting.

VALET:

Did he open?

The Cook, scared, shakes his head: no. The Valet again knocks

on the door.

VALET:

Here I am, Signore. Now open the

door.

He eats the sugared cake in his hand, elaborately and noisily.

VALET:

Mmmm - this is good! This is the

most delicious thing I ever ate,

believe me! Signore, you don't know

what you're missing! Mmmm!

We hear a thump from inside the bedroom.

VALET:

Now that's enough, Signore! Open!

We hear a terrible, throaty groaning.

VALET:

If you don't open this door, we're

going to eat everything. There'll be

nothing left for you. And I'm not

going to bring you anything more.
