LASHAWN:

That woman has some moves...She is really sexy, don't you think, Jack?[/b]


JACK:

((Jack peers up at the singer.))

**Sexy?....** ((Jack pauses)). **Don't know if I can call her that in such pretty company. Wouldn't seem right. But Ah'll tell you that that husband a'yers is a real keeper. He keeps lookin' this way, just can't keep his eyes off ya.**

((Jack swings LaShawn away from the speakers.))

**Couldn't care right now if she were the sexiest gal in the world anyhow. This room just ain't big enough for both the band and her voice.**

Laurel Sparta

((After spending a short spa holiday with her good friend the sea serpent CeeCee (which greatly restores her natural beauty), Laurel returns to the surface to discover how the production is going so far and get back to work so that everything is running on time. By her calculations the whole thing should have been completed by now, and she is anxious to play the last scenes and roll the credits.))

Jack:

**Hey, com'on now, ain't her fault. Our director and everyone here's been doin' their part. I didn't even know LaShawn had been to miming school, or knew any of that interpretive dance stuff, but hell she can get a lot more out that way than speakin' 130 words a minute.  She told me her whole life story in three sweeps 'round the dance floor.**

JACK:

((Jack sweeps LaShawn back over to their table, which has already been cleared of their dinner plates, and looks over at Lureen.))

**Ready to go, hun?**

((Jack watches Lureen wiggle her nose, grab her purse, open it, and look inside for something. She then grabs LaShawn's arm and they both go off in the direction of the ladies' room.))

((Jack stands there and stares after them, then grabs his jacket from the chair, pulls out a cigarette from the pocket and lights it.))

**Reckon they'll be a while then. Let's wait outside.**

((RANDALL's voice trails off as he follows JACK past the dancers still twirlin', dippin', swayin'...))

THE VERY PATIENT BENCH OUTSIDE THE DANCE HALL:

(( In delighted contemplation and anticipation of the fine derrière in question: ))

Jack:

((Jack nods at Randall's wisdom, noting his devilish charming smile.))

**Yeah, your wife wore me out, that's for sure. She sure can dance, even if she's quiet one minute and a busybody the next. Not that I mind that sorta thing. Just sayin'.**

((Jack drags on his cigarette and gently eases himself onto the bench outside the Childress town hall. He smiles and quirks an eyebrow at Randall, suddenly feeling more youthful in Randall's presence.))

**So, you ever dance much? Saw you watchin' us when we were out on the floor.**

RANDALL~

Oh you noticed, did'ja?  Well sorry to be starin' at ya so hard, you jus' reminded me of someone, that's all.

%%Shhhee-it, I didn't know I was bein' so obvious!  I wonder who else noticed me starin' at him?!  Damn!!!%%

((Randall squirmed uncomfortably on the hard wood bench and spread his legs so much wider trying to get situated that his knee accidentally touches Jack's knee, but he leaves it there.))



Both of them sit silently smoking their cigarettes, in deep thought.

Naw, I don't dance much, I like fishin' better.  What about you?  D'ya like ta go fishin' Jack?

%%Uh oh, am I being too direct?%%

JACK:

**Fishin'? Hell no, don't know a darn thing about fish-...**

((Jack catches Randall's heated look focused straight on him and looks away suddenly. No denying what he saw there.))

**Oh you mean fishin'**

((Jack is uncertain what to say, so he continues to look around. A couple walk out of the dance hall and head down the sidewalk.))
