Connie and Carla

Where can we go?

- New York?

- New York?

- New York's too obvious.

- Florida?

- Florida?

- They can't hide.

- We can't hide!

- We gotta go someplace where we can just blend in.

Okay. Somewhere where

they'd never look for us,

because there's no theater,

no musical theater,

no dinner theater,

no culture at all.

Los Angeles.

We could be L.A. girls now.

We should work out.

Good one.

Thank you.

Oh. Oh, I think

I have a tissue.

- Here.

- Thank you.

What's this?

I don't know.

I can't see!

Oh, it tastes really funny!

Don't inhale!

Spit it out!

Stop breathing!

Where'd you get that?

I didn't get it!


It was in your bag!

We've been rehearsing a lot,

and he's got that newjob.

What if he doesn't even have any job? What if

he's found somebody else? Yeah, yeah, that's it.

I think Mikey cheated on me, 'cause I was

always working nights. It's not his fault.

It was probably that waitress

at Dodo's Diner. The blond?

She always looks at him funny when she

brings him his cheese melt. Hi, Mikey.

She makes me sick,

she's so sweet.

So sweet. Like the devil

in devil's food cake.

She just- She makes me wanna puke.

She makes me wanna vomit.

It's okay, Carla.

It's okay.

We deserve better,

that's for sure.

You know what?

No more time for losers, Carla.


When one door closes,

another door opens.

Yeah, life is like a patio door. You

never know which side is gonna be open.

Mm-hmm, and you walk

into the glass.

Get your motor runnin'

Head out on the highway

Lookin'for adventure

In whatever comes our way

Yeah, darling

gonna make it happen

Take the world

in a lovely embrace

Fire all of your guns at once and

Explode into space

Born to be wild

They look friendly here.

Oh, I really like it here.

Me too. I got a good

feeling about this, Carla.
