Bit 16 - Agreement for Substitute Dancer

Scene Description


Dialogue

Baby [to Penny]: Here's the money.

Penny: You mean Robbie?

Baby: No. You were right about him?

Penny: Then where'd you get it?

Baby: You said you needed it.

Penny: Is this kid for real?

Johnny: Yeah it takes a real saint to ask Daddy.

Penny: Thanks, Baby, but I can't use it.

Johnny: What? What's the matter with you? You should take the money.

Billy [to Baby]: I can only get her an appointment for Thursday. They do their act at the Sheldrake on Thursday night. If they cancel, they lose this season's salary and next year's gig.

Baby: What's the Sheldrake?

Billy: It's another hotel where they do their mambo act.

Baby: Can't someone else fill in?

Johnny: No, Miss Fix-it. Somebody else can't fill in. Maria has to work all day. She can't learn the routines. And Janet has to fill in for Penny. Everybody works here. What do you wanna do it? Take time out from Simon Says?

Billy: It's not a bad idea.

Johnny: It was a joke, Billy.

Penny: She can move.

Johnny: No, it's the dumbest idea I ever heard of.

Baby: I can't even do the merengue.

Johnny: See?

Penny: Johnny, you're a strong partner. You can lead anybody.

Johnny: But you heard her. She can't even do the merengue. She can’t do it. She cannot do it.
