MILLICENT:

Lowell.

STUCKEY:

Lowell, right. My wife,

Elizabeth.

ELIZABETH:

(ignoring her)

Is Edward leaving?

Stuckey looks up to see Edward moving quickly toward the door.

Stuckey abruptly leaves the two woman together to follow Edward.

EXT. THE HOUSE - NIGHT

Edward comes out of the house. Jags, a limo with waiting

DRIVER and two BMW's pack the circular driveway behind a black

Ferrari. The limo driver leaps to attention at the sight of

Edward. Edward stands, making an obvious effort to keep his

impatience under control. Stuckey comes out of the house and

down the walk.

STUCKEY:

What's up, where you going?

EDWARD:

Give me your car keys, will you,

I'm going back to my hotel.

STUCKEY:

At least stay for a drink. This

party's for you.

EDWARD:

Apologize to Elizabeth for me.

Stuckey gropes uncertainly in his pocket for keys.

STUCKEY:

Listen, there're some major local

talent inside just dying to meet

you...

EDWARD:

(as if delighted)

Really? Some high class gold

digger who speaks French better

than I do?

(turning away)

No, thank you. I just got off

the phone with one.

STUCKEY:

Cynthia's not coming?

EDWARD:

No.

Edward grabs the keys out of Stuckey's hand. He crosses to a

black Ferrari and gets in.

STUCKEY:

Let your driver take you. We'll

move the cars...

Edward starts the car.

STUCKEY:

Can you drive a stick?

The car lurches forward with a squeal of wheels and promptly

stalls.

STUCKEY:

Edward, give me a break!

With a squeal of tires, the Ferrari bucks out of the driveway

and... stalls again.
