[EASY-LISTENING MUSIC PLAYING]

A FANTASTIC WOMAN

[WATER PATTERING]

- Monica?

MONICA:
Yes?

Have you seen a big, white envelope

I left on my desk?

No, Mr. Orlando, I haven't.

Thanks.

[CHATTERING]

- Hello.

- Good afternoon.

Can I have some paper

and an envelope?

Sure, let me see.

Great.

[ELEVATOR BELL DINGS]

WOMAN:
Your love is like

Yesterday's newspaper

No one wants to read it anymore

Sensational when it was published

In the morning

Reports are confirmed by midday

By afternoon

The story's forgotten

Your love is like

Yesterday's newspaper

Its headlines filled the front page

So you're known everywhere

I cut out your name and kept it

Pasting it into my album of oblivion

Your love is like

Yesterday's newspaper

CHORUS & ORLANDO: And what's

The point of reading yesterday's paper?

News that everyone knows

And which I don't want to read

[CHORUS & ORLANDO

SINGING IN SPANISH]

You were good for nothing, baby

So I threw you in the trash

[CHORUS SINGING IN SPANISH]

I had you, I loved you

I supported you

But I no longer love you

No longer love you

- Good evening.

HOSTESS:
Good evening.

I reserved for "Orlando Onetto."

One second.

[PAPER RUSTLING]

Yes, that's right. Table 41.

- Thanks.

WAITER:
Follow me.

[SINGING "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

IN MANDARIN]

[MUSICAL CANDLES

PLAYING TUNE]

[ORLANDO & MARINA CHUCKLE]

Thank you, Orlando.

[SPEAKS IN MAN DARIN]

MARINA:
Thank you!

WAITER:
I'll bring out some slices.

Thank you.

[SPEAKS IN MAN DARIN]

Thanks, love.

A musical cake and everything!

Um, ahem.

- Here.

- Oh.

How formal. Hey.

"Valid for two trips to lguazu Falls."

- Orlando!

- It's no small thing.

It's one of the Natural Wonders

of the World.

- Wow!

- Heh-heh.

When do we go?

In 10 days.

In 10 days?

[CHAIR SLIDES OUT]

MARINA:

Hm.

[MARINA CHUCKLES]

And why "valid for"?

It's a long story.

You haven't bought them yet?

Yes, I bought them, printed them out...

...and put them in an envelope.

And then?

I had them at the sauna.

And?

I don't remember

where the f*ck I put them.

Poor, senile old man.

[CHUCKLING]

Goodbye, my friend

Who knows when

we shall meet

The stars wait for me

Who knows where

we shall meet again

If ever

But time

Keeps flowing like a river

On and on

To the sea

To the sea

Till it's gone forever

Gone forever

[LIGHT CLICKS AND DINGS]

[DOORKNOB RATTLING]

[ORLANDO GRUNTS

THEN CHUCKLES]

ORLANDO:

We'll have to ask the doorman for help.

[BOTH LAUGH]

[LIGHT CLICKS AND DINGS]

Oh.

[ORLANDO CHUCKLES]

[GLASSES CLATTER]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Orlando?

- Orlando, what's wrong?

- I don't know.

"I don't know"?

ORLANDO:

I don't know what's wrong with me.

[SPEAKS IN SPANISH]

What the f*ck is wrong?

Get up. Come on.

[MARINA GRUNTS]

Honey.

What's wrong with you?

[DIABLA BARKING]

Lean against the wall. Here.

[ORLANDO GRUNTS]

Look at me.

Here.

Do you have the keys?

No.

[SPEAKS IN SPANISH]

Wait here.

[DIABLA CONTINUES BARKING

AND ORLANDO EXHALES DEEPLY]

No, Diabla, stop that! Come here!

Diabla!

[GRUNTING]

[MARINA SPEAKING IN SPANISH

THEN LIGHT DINGS]

Orlando, honey!

[DIABLA BARKS]

[DIABLA WHIMPERING

AND BARKING]

- Let's go!

- I'm fine.

[MARINA SPEAKS IN SPANISH]

MARINA:

Talk to me, honey. Okay?

Talk to me!

[MARINA SPEAKS IN SPANISH]

Please!

Talk to me!

Where are we going?

To the hospital, Orlando, where else?

Focus, okay?

[GRUNTING AND

BREATHING HEAVILY]

Hurry.

What?

Hurry up-

[SPEAKS IN SPANISH]

I will, honey.

[CAR HORN HONKING]

MARINA:

Help me, please!

PARAMEDIC:

Easy, ma'am. We've got him.
