- It's fine.

- He's coming back.


- Whoo!

- Hey, everything okay?

Yeah, fine.

I didn't mean to upset you.

Did I?

- Did I upset you, Anita?

- It's-- I don't--

I just really don't know

what you were saying.

- Um...

- What happened?

- I--

- I missed it.

I was teasing Anita and...

I think I was--

I was misunderstood.

I-- I just--

I'm clumsy sometimes.

- I-- I don't mean to be.

- I don't know.

Sometimes it takes me

a little while to get

the gears going and everything.

You all seem like very nice people,

I think.

Gee, thanks.


Well, I'm certainly

glad that

you all are doing this piece.

I have a really good feeling about it

and I just wanted to say cheers

- to all of you.

- Cheers.

That's very--

that's very true.

- Mm-hmm.

- Do you think they're interesting?


Uh, yes, I-- probably, yeah.

They probably are.

I don't get your point, Tyrone.

What-what-- what's your point?

You know what it is?

I'm just tired.

I-- I--

I'm gonna excuse myself.



- I'll see y'all later.

- See you tomorrow.

He's a load of laughs.

I like him.

It's probably hard for him.

We all know each other,

he's just coming in.

- Yeah.

- I'm sure he's intimidated by me.

I'm sure he was.

I dreamt that I was under a tree.

Oh, Tyrone. Hi.

Where are you going?

I was up all night,

but I think I was dreaming,

so I must've slept some.

Um, you like Julie?

Yeah, I like Julie too.

Now try it just--

just speaking the melody,
