Hi Max. Nice place.
Yeah. Well you know. Tito Merelli.
How was rehearsal?
Not too bad. Considering I had to sing the duets by myself.
Yeah. Im- im sorry about that. He'll be there tonight, though. No problem.
It might work better that way.
Diana....is there, uh, anything I can do for you?
I just thought I'd stop by and say hello. I thought it might be preferable to meeting him onstage.
Gee, thats-thats nice of you, but the thing is, he's uh, he's sleeping right now. He's taking a nap.
I can wait. There's no hurry.
Yeah. well actually......If you see what I mean.
Do you know what he could do for me Max? One call from tito meralli and id be at the met in two days.
So you see max, it's very important to me that I get to know, spend a little time with him, do you understand?
Yah I really do....He'll be here tomorrow. Right? Okay.
You're very max. Has anyone ever told you that before?
sure, my mother, my aunt harriet.
My uncle bud.
You aren't going to let me see him, are you, Max?
Later. I promise. I'll arrange it so you have lots of time with him alone. Okay? I promise.
Will you give him a message for me?
Tell him this.
I'll tell him, of course he might misunderstand.
See you later, Max!
Tractor. Trailers. Trophies.
Hi there. Surprised to see me? I told you I might drop in. Didn't you believe me? Are you all right?
Then perhaps I should order some champagne. What do you think?
May I use the phone? Room service please. Yes, I'd like to order a bottle of champagne. Is Mumm all right?
She's fine thank you.
Yes. That'll be fine. Well, you certainly are a fast operator, I must say. I barely know you, and here we are alone in your hotel room with a bottle of champagne on the way up.
I'm just a tricky guy, eh?
Come Here. Tito can I ask you question?
I want you to be totally honest with me. All right? Do you promise?
Cross a-my heart.
Brutal, if necessary
Was I good tonight?
I'm sure it's difficult to make any lasting judgements, after having done it with me only once. But would you say I was....exciting tonight?
We spent a some time together ey?
We certainly did.
Now I want the truth. Just take the big moment at the end. Would you say it was something special?
I can take it believe me tito I'm a professional.
A pro? Oh my god. A professional!
You don't think so?
No I do. I promise.
Well then how was I? Tito?
I'm trying to remember
I'm suppose youre telling me I was no good.
No! Hey! You were great! You were fantastic!
You're only saying that-
No I swear! You were unbelievable! It went by so fast, I can hardly remember.
Oh, Tito. Do you mean it?
Thank God. I'm so relieved.
Heh. This, uh profession. You take it pretty serious eh?
It's all I've ever wanted to be since I was a little girl. Isn't that awful.
Of course my mother was in the business.
And my father was too.
I guess you can say it's in my blood.
You got something in your blood?!
Does it show?
No! No! You look-a fine.
And you thought I was good tonight. I mean really really good?
Oh yeah. Great.
You have no idea what this means to me, Tito. Coming from you.
I was so afraid you were disappointed. I mean it's so hard to tell with all those people there.
Now, Tito just supposing that I am as good as you think. And supposing that I have the confidence and the stamina to make it in the big time, in New York...
I was wondering if, perhaps, you could introduce me to some of your friends? Is that possible Tito?
Hey, I'm not so sure eh?
Producers, Directors the ones that matter. What about your agent?
My agent, shes a woman.
So thats all right with me.
Of course! I wouldn't care if she was a kangaroo! The important thing is whether sh's good or not. Right?
All I need with her is five minutes. And if she doesnt think I'm special, at least I tried. I had a chance....Tito?
Hey. I do my best, okay?
If thats what you want
Tito How can I ever thank you?
My pleasure, eh?
It will be I promise. Oh see who it is.
She's Henry's daughter. I suppose she wants your autograph or something.
Go ahead, but just get rid of her as soon as you can. I'll slip into something more comfortable. How does that sound?
i like it.
I haven't seen you.
Is she gone yet?
well, get rid of her!
I do my best.
Perhaps I'll take a bubble bath. Then you can join me.
Oh Tito! Champagne!
Now dont go 'way, I have a little surprise for you, I'll be right back.
Well? Do you like it? I thought you might.
You poor thing, you look tired. You've had a rough day haven't you? Now don't you worry. I'm going to make it all better. you'll see.
Shall we turn off a-the lights?
I like it with the lights on.
I guess so eh?
I bet you don't feel tired anymore, do you?
I must look awful. I think I'd better do some reconstruction. I won't be long.
All set! What are you doing here?
I was about to ask you the same thing.
This happens to be a private party
It certainly is, so scram
Tell her that you idiot
How long have you been here?
About a half hour
That's impossible. I've been here for a half hour.
Yes, I know. I was here when you arrived. He said he'd get rid of you as soon as possible.
How could you do this? After what you said to me?
Never trust a man in tights.
You louse. You crumb.
Just what I was thinking.
Get him! Block the door!
Come out of there you rat!
It's no use
Save your breath. I know his type.
Now what do we do?
I don't know about you, but i'm getting dressed
Tito, my dress is in there.
Tito. I need my dress. I promise I won't hurt you.
GIVE ME THE GODDAM DRESS OR I'LL KILL YOU!
Thank you Tito.
I wouldn't have believed it was possible. he seemed so nice.
He is nice. Just a little tricky thats all.
Does this sort of thing happen very often?
Yes and no. I've two timed before, but never with quite so much flair. I mean, you've got to hand it to him.
I did that's the problem.
One more a chance eh? One more a chance and that's it.
Oh my god hes got another one.
Who are you?
A friend of the family. Who are you?
Maggie, dear. Guess who's here.
I'm gonna keel him.
We know just how you feel.
You've met before.
Just once in the closet.
You realize of course that she's Titos wife.
I'm gonna keel him. I swear before God on everything thats a holy I'm gonna strangle him!
She's sounds like his wife.
With my bare hands.
She's his wife.
Where is he? Where is he?
He locked himself in.
He won't come out.
We were passing by, so we stopped in.
We didn't say that.
Of course not
We were standing here waiting for Tito
And and someone ran in there
Who sort of...looked like Tito
I really wouldn't bother him.
It's hardly important.
Yes of course.
Henry, is there any food left downstairs.
I should think so.
Good. Let's go. For some reason, I'm very hungry.
