Heart of midnight

I love you.

The midnight



I'll just let him sleep.

Yeah, I don't have to wake him up now.

I'll just let him sleep.

Miss rivers?


Miss... hi.

I'm Richard the foreman.

I just wanted to get you these.

I'm sorry.

- Hi.

- Hello.

- Tom, Henry, this is miss rivers.

- How you doing?

Pleased to meet you.

Your uncle Fletcher,

well, he left us in a bit of a...

Good night, I guess.

We weren't sure who'd inherit the place.

We surely weren't expecting no pretty lady.


So, a lawyer told us you plan

to continue the renovation.

That's right.

Good! Good.

Well, I'll tell you what,

you just settle in upstairs

and we'll have this place

swinging again in no time.

- Right?

- That's right.

Yeah yeah, right.

Well, I would like to go over

the plans with you.

You know, if that's okay?

Well, we got a hell of a day today.

But look, we'll find time tomorrow.

I'm sure we will.


Okay, fine. Tomorrow.

Good. What happened to your leg?

An elephant trod on it.

Very funny.

Tom, help the lady upstairs with her bag.

No, no, no. I can manage.

- Tom!

- No!

It's one small bag.

- L'm sure I can manage.

- All right.

Thank you.



Should be champagne, fletch,

but I'm on the wagon.

I'll give you my love

I'm sure that love

will see us through



- what else...

- Can I do?

If you want the moon

I'll bring the moon

right down to you

baby, baby

what else can I do?

One day, we'll live in a mansion

out where the pastures are green

but even in a small room

just a little hall room

you'll be the king

I'll be the queen

my heart just for a start

till dreams come true, baby





what else can I do?

Oh, boy.

Now let's see.

Well, there you are.

Yeah, it just...

It seems to me...

I mean, well...

Wouldn't it be more logical...

I said, wouldn't it be more logical...

There is no logic to this place.

It's been so many things.

It doesn't know what it is anymore.

A warehouse, speakeasy,

gambling joint, restaurant...

Psychedelic club, a disco.

Funny old world, isn't it?

Yes, it is.

But I still think...

I still think I would rather put...

Put the...

Put the booth over there

and the bar over there.

Now look, I know it's not in the plans, but...


I said that I know...


I can't hear myself think.

Okay. Okay.

Okay. Hey, guys! Guys!

Everybody, stop work!


How long you think we need, Carol?

We don't get

this here lumber sawed by quitting time,

we sure enough gonna

be behind tomorrow.

Okay, look.

I'm sorry, guys. I didn't mean to interrupt.

I just... forget it.

How long will this take? As long as I need.

You're the boss. You're the boss.

What a joke that is.

What? Oh, yes.

They have asked me

to open another club in New York.

But you know,

I'm having such a good time here,

I would hate to do that.

Also, I...

They really need me to run it, you know?

You like the singer? Well, thank you.

Yes, well, I did.

I had a very difficult time finding her.

But now that I've got her,

she's gold, believe me.


Will you be having wine tonight?

Me? No no no, I don't drink.

I haven't had a drink

in about a year and a half.



Richard must have dropped these off.

Just didn't want to bother me.




Carol, I called your psychiatrist.

That's right, I talked to her. I had to.

Do you know what she said to me?

She said you're

taking a terrible risk going off like this.

- She said you're never gonna...

- Mama...

I know what she said.

And she's right.

If I go down there
