CUT TO:

10. EXT. THE MUSIC BAR - NIGHT

A beat-up, red ’64 Ford Falcon station wagon filled with insane

TEENAGERS on speed and PCP race out of control down the street past the

club - leaning out the car in every direction. They scream out to the

desolate-looking passerby.

TEENAGERS:

EAT SHIT MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!

The camera cranes up to the neon club sign and gets lost among the hot

pink neon, the frantic moths and the intense electric buzz.

CUT TO:

11. INT. THE MUSIC BAR - NIGHT

Lula and her friend, BEANY THORN, sit at a table drinking rum Coca-Colas

while watching and listening to a white blues band called THE BLEACH

BOYS. The group segues smoothly from Elmore James’s “Dust my Broom”

into Robert Johnson’s “Me and the Devil” and Beany lets out a snort.

BEANY:

I can dig this music... But not

that singer.

LULA:

Why?... He’s right in the groove.

BEANY:

He’s so ugly. Guys with beards and

beer guts ain’t quite my type.

LULA:

(giggles)

Seein’s how you’re about as thick as

a used string of unwaxed dental floss,

don’t know how you can criticize.

BEANY:

Yeah, well, if he says that all that

flab turns into dick at midnight,

he’s a liar.

Lula and Beany laugh and swallow some of their drinks.

BEANY:

So, Sailor’s gettin’ out soon, and

you’re gonna see him?

Lula nods and crushes an ice cube with her back teeth and chews it.

LULA:

Meetin’ him at the gate. That phone

call this afternoon was the signal.

My deranged mama’s hid the keys to

my car. But of course, I know

exactly where they are.

BEANY:

I didn’t hate me so much, I’d feel

better wishin’ you luck.

LULA:

Can’t all husbands be perfect, and

your Elmo prob’ly wouldn’ta ever

got that second one pregnant, you

hadn’t kicked his ass out.
