it's very clear

our love is here to stay

not for a year

but ever and a day

the radio and the telephone

and the movies that we know

may just be passing fancies

and in time may go

but, oh-Oh, my dear

our love is here to stay

together we're

going a long, long way

in time

the rockies may crumble

gibraltar may tumble

they're only made of clay

but our love is here

to stay

it's very clear

our love is here to stay

together we're

goin' a long, long

long, long way

in time

the rockies may crumble

gibraltar may tumble

they're only made of clay

but our love is here

to stay


It has come eight seconds to go,

one possession.

Marv albert with bill walton from the

america west arena in phoenix, arizona.

I can't hear myself

over the crowd.

If the suns win,

they go to the finals.

If they lose, it means

going back to san antonio.

We got eight seconds. That's plenty of time.

Let's run a straight line.

Majerle, you take the ball out, bring

k.J. Up, get it to him, and get through.

Chuck's gonna be at the top of the key;

kick it back to him.

Chuck, you win the game.Get me the ball.

- No time outs left. Now let's go!

- Suns!

This is what it's all about.

Game-Winning time.

I'm looking for barkley

to step up right here. What a shot!

For those who just tuned in,

david robinson fouled out a moment ago.

For "the admiral," 43 points,get barkley!

Don't foul!

21 rebounds.

All right, here we go.

Dan majerle will inbound

the basketball,

The suns one possession

from elimination.

They're going wild here in phoenix.

Kevin johnson takes it.

Moves to the right side.

Johnson setting it up, looking for barkley.

We're down to six

as barkley angles for the shot.

Barkley to his left!

Barkley checking the clock! Three, two, one...

Barkley with the release!

Yes! It's all over!

Charles barkley has put the

phoenix suns in the nba finals.

The most dramatic victory in the

history of the suns' franchise.

No basket! The shot was after the buzzer!

Game's over!

Are you crazy?No, no!

No, no, no!

- Are you crazy?

- You didn't get it off. You were late!

- He got it off!

- He didn't get it off, dan!

He got it off!Hey, hey!

You're wrong!You did not get it off.

You did not get it off.That is total bullshit.

Watch yourself. That's it.

No basket. Game's over!

I don't want to protect you,

but i have to.

The crowd appears to be

voicing its displeasure.

Hey, charles!


I'll see you

in san antonio!

- You'll see me! You'll see me kick your ass!

- Ahh!

I sure wouldn't want to be mickey

gordon tonight or any other night...

The rest of my life

here in phoenix.

I hope you die!

- You need help on that?

- No, i saw it. He was late.

Let's get you out of here.This is not my jacket.

Screw your jacket!

Let's just get out of here.

As they lead mickey gordon

off the court,

You can only think,

as long as they play this game of basketball,

They'll be talking about

that controversial call.

For bill walton,

i'm marv albert.

I've been a sportswriter

for 20 years.

I've covered every great event,

and i'm sitting here,

Watching my best friend make the gutsiest

call in the history of basketball.

They ran it on every news show

in america for two days.

Don't sit charles barkley and referee

mickey gordon together at a dinner party.

The sports world is still stunned

by this controversial call.

Gordon remains in seclusion

under police guard.

Bravo, mickey gordon. It's this kind of

leadership and decision-Making we need...

In the white house.

No news, no weather,

no theater reviews.

Just that. Over and over again.

And you know what?

Mickey got it right.

Right there, live. On the spot.

He got it right.

The shot was late.

By a hundredth of a second.Oh, god!

Honey, that's

an amazing story.

If only i liked basketball,

i reallywould have liked it.

I'm kidding.

I'm kidding.

Welcome to helen's.

Can i get you something to drink?

We're waiting for other people.

Then we'll order some champagne.We're getting married.

- Fine with me.

- How's the house wine?

It's like me.

Fruity, yet oddly appealing.

Oh, we'll wait.You know, he'll wait.

I'll have a glass of red.

You got it.

I'm a little nervous,

all right?About what?

About meeting

all of your friends.Oh.

About the fact that they're flying to new york

from all over the country to... look at me.

I'm gonna feel

like a show horse.

Hey, they'll love you. You already met

craig and lucy. They were wild for you.


Mickey's the greatest. I can't

wait for you to meet him.

I tell you,

it's unbelievable.

Three months ago,

i am this confirmed single dope.

I'm living in new york, i'm writing for the

paper i used to deliver when i was a kid.

And i get your fax.

One little number off.

And ya-Bing!

We both hit our hearts.I know.

Then i started faxing you

and you started faxing me.

And pretty soon we're just...

faxing each other's brains out.


House red.


I think it's got to be the strangest way...

For two people to get

together i ever heard of.
