Gentlemen, enjoy the party. The

EDWARD:

(calling after them)

Watch your left pocket.

A BUTLER has entered the room.

Phone call, Mr. Harris. It's Miss

Cynthia? Is she coming out?

EDWARD:

We're about to find out. Go on.

Take care of your guests.

Stuckey exits the room as Edward crosses to the telephone.

EDWARD:

Where are you, Cynthia?

I see.

No, I don't expect you to be at

my beck-and-call. Are you coming

or not?

Edward descends the long, curved stairway. He has Vance in

Prepare the filing papers. Have

them ready by the middle of the

week. I'll tell you when to

submit them.

The PEOPLE talking and drinking on the stairway gravitate

toward Edward.

A MAN:

Edward!

EDWARD:

(turning on the charm)

Yes!

THE MAN:

Will we see you at the polo

matches Wednesday?

EDWARD:

Wouldn't miss it.

(abruptly; to Vance)

I want this done fast and easy.

No slip-ups. I want to be back

in New York by Saturday. Got it?

He deftly keeps making his way through the crowd.

Stuckey is sipping champagne and talking to a beautiful

WOMAN in a tight sheath of an evening dress. An elegant woman

ELIZABETH STUCKEY approaches from behind him. She taps him on

Bill?

(flustered)

Oh... Hi, honey... Millicent,

uh, uh, Millicent.
