There's nothing there.

I'd like to start by thanking Hal

Prince and Steven Sondheim...

...for not producing a play on

Broadway this year.

And surely, the impaccable Jenny,

stage manageress without peer.

Where is she?

Thank you for everything,


...holding my hand, finding my keys

and telling me my zipper was open.

And, finally, the one person whom

I couldn't have gotten through...

...the show, the rehearsals

or any of it.

My darling Kay.

The night is yours and

I love yo...

Was this always here?

- Was what always there?

- This wall. Was it always here?

- Yes, mother. It was always there.

- Well, I don't remember it.

It was always there. It was always

- Oh, so do I.

Is Rupert here yet?

No, not yet.

He said he'd be here

at four o'clock.

He's probably playing with those

dead Arabs.

Mother... It's his job. Please

be a little tolerant of him.

- He's such a nerd.

- He's not a nerd.

Where did you learn that word?

Well, it just came out

when I met him.

Nerd. Just like that from my lips.


- I like Rupert.

- Well, then you marry him.

Rupert is a fine, intelligent man

and we're going to be married.

Why couldn't you have found
