Jolly Grimm:
[introducing his movie] I thought very hard about how to introduce this picture to you tonight, and I thought to myself, "Jolly, be humble! That's the ticket this time!" And then I thought about it some more... me? Be humble? That's like Calvin Coolidge dancing the Black Bottom.


[audience laughs]



Jolly Grimm:
If you saw it, you wouldn't believe it! Me standing here, all coy-like, "Ladies and gentlemen, I do sincerely hope you like my new picture, Brother Jasper"... when what I really want to tell you is how proud I am. Proud because I wrote it, directed it... and naturally I star in it.

Jolly Grimm:
[referring to Dale Sword, who is upstairs with Queenie] That son-of-a-bitch had better come down here and watch a great actor doing a great scene!

Nadine:
[She walks into the garden, carrying a toolbox] Is this Mr. Grimm's house?



Jolly Grimm:
That's right.



Nadine:
Well, do you know where I can find Mr. Grimm?



Jolly Grimm:
You're looking at him.



Nadine:
Oh! I'm sorry... wow, you look thinner. Oh, well I didn't mean... it's just on the screen you look gigantic!



Jolly Grimm:
Who are you?



Nadine:
Oh gosh, I'm sorry. My sister said I should come. You know, Grace. Grace Jones. She came with Eddie Mangione.



Jolly Grimm:
What's your name?



Nadine:
Nadine. Nadine Jones.


[she smiles]



Jolly Grimm:
[He takes her hand] Welcome Nadine. How did you get here?



Nadine:
I hitchhiked. Thumbed all the way from Burbank. See, I'm a dancer. Acrobatics, ballet... like that. And I'm good too, Mr. Grimm. I thought maybe you like to let me entertain all these movie people and...



Jolly Grimm:
Not tonight. It's not a good time.



Nadine:
Oh no... really?



Jolly Grimm:
You must be starved. Why don't you go to the kitchen and get some chow. I think there's some sasparilla in the icebox. Ask for Wilma. Go on now, it's right through there.



Nadine:
Thanks, Mr. Grimm... but maybe later?



Jolly Grimm:
We'll see.

Kate:
You gotta be philosophical about these things. I understand why my best friend would run off with Dale. I mean, everyone knows what kind of life she has with Jolly. It's no secret.



James Morrison:
We've got to find them, Katie.



Kate:
Aww, Jiminy...


[Kate crosses to the bed and puts her arms around Jim]



Kate:
I understand. You've been stuck on her for years, plain as day. But hey, sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. Like tonight. Okay, we both lost. But that doesn't mean a souple of losers aren't entitled to a little fun, right?


[She kisses Jim, he doesn't respond]



Kate:
Okay loser. You win.

Jolly Grimm:
[about Queenie] I want to give her something... some kind of feeling of security. I don't know... that's what most girls want, isn't it?



Tex:
She asked for that?



Jolly Grimm:
Nah. You know her. She's too proud.
