That triggers a distant alcohol fogged memory. DING. The
elevator arrives. He steps in.

Barney grins from ear to ear, filled with glee at this news.
On the elevator doors closing we...

EXT. TOTALLY UNNECESSARY PRODUCTIONS - DAY
Barney drives up to the offices of TOTALLY UNNECESSARYPRODUCTIONS and pulls into his personal parking spot.
INT. TV SOUNDSTAGE - DAY
We drop right into a scene of Barney's TV show, the longrunning soap - "O'MALLEY OF THE NORTH".
The CONSTABLE, O'MALLEY, mid-50's and still handsome, isbeing tended to by a female NURSE played by SOLANGE (52),
making a "house call" to the local bar.
(wrapping a bandage)
How does that feel, O'Malley?
Warm and tight.
SOLANGE, originally cast as the "sexpot" of the show, heruniform is inappropriately low cut and tight for a woman herage, but she works it like she's still the cat's meow.
Barney quietly walks onto the sound stage, and sits in hisproducers chair. The scene is painful for him watch. He
pulls over a WARDROBE GIRL.
