But, Daddy, you all know Michael loves me
and I love him.
"You can't call that a sin,
his feelings for me."
That' s where my brother breaks in,
All right, where is Mr. Johnson?
- He's outside taking a smoke.
- Joe, go get him, will you?
Everybody be on your toes.
Mr. Jaffe's taking rehearsal today.
All right, skip that part, Miss Plotka.
Go to the place where you hear your father
has just killed Michael.
Come on, make your entrance.
"Mary Jo, where are you all, Mary Jo?"
"What is it, Emmy Lou?"
"Your father just met Michael.
He's out there on the lawn."
"Emmy Lou, what are we going to do?"
- You hear a shot.
- Two shots, isn't it, Mr. Jacobs?
"Oh, Lordy, Miss Mary Jo.
Your daddy just killed Mr. Michael."
That' s where I scream.
There's going to be a lot of screaming
around here, young lady...
and it isn't going to be by you, either.
But you said we were just walking through.
- I know we were walking through...
All right, go ahead, everybody.
Go through it again.
Now that Hoboken Cinderella
isn't going to do.
That kind of acting is for pins
in a basement.
You're telling me.
She's hopeless, and the worst of it
is that Jaffe's going to blame me...
for the fact that a lingerie model
hasn't turned out to be a Bernhardt.
The more you direct her, the worse she gets.
Max, which one of these foul guinea hens
is named Lily Garland?
Not so loud, Owen.
We're discussing something.
Listen, you foul Corsican,
these are orders from on high.
I just encountered Mr. Jaffe in the lobby,
all of a twitter.
- Is he here?
- Yes, he's here...
and he wants her pulsing life story
trumpeted through the press...
by tomorrow morning.
Where is the little baggage?
Who are you talking about?
Lily Garland, you business giant.
There's nobody of that name
connected with the organization.
And please, don't come around here
when you've been drinking.
- It doesn't make for discipline.
- Isn't that too bad?
Call the roll. Lily Garland, front and center.
Come on now, fess up. Which one of you
pretty witches is named Lily Garland?
Say, what is this wall of silence,
Maybe you got the name wrong.
Where's the phone? I can still hear, can't I?
No, the master spoke with his usual clarity.
Hello, Myrtle, put the wizard on the wire.
He's in the sanctum.
I'll tell him you wish to speak to him.
I don't wish to be interrupted now,
I don't want to talk to you now, Owen.
I gave you your orders. Carry them out.
Yes, Lily Garland. She's on the stage.
She is, is she?
Send me down your ouija board
and I'll try and get in touch with her.
Can't you carry out your orders?
Say, listen, sire, there's only one blonde
roosting on this foul stage.
You, with the legs, what' s your name?
She claims her name is Mildred Plotka.
That' s her.
I forgot to tell you with all the other things
on my mind.
Her old name didn't seem suitable.
I changed it to Lily Garland.
Tell Mr. Jacobs he has exactly three minutes
to get everyone assembled.
- What is it? What' s the matter?
- Hold your bonnets.
The all-highest is on his way down
amid a shower of meteors.
Thank you, child.
- Good morning, Mr. Jaffe.
- Good morning.
Well, O.J., welcome to our midst.
I don't like anyone chewing gum
on the stage, Oliver. Spit it out, please.
- Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
- Good morning, sir.
Sit down, please.
I have been looking forward
to this little occasion for some time.
