[KATY] Backstage at Molly's Crisis,

my friend Jorge Lopez was
working on his production

of Kiss of the
Spider Woman: The Musical.

♪ Come and find me ♪

♪ Hear my song ♪

♪ Let me hold you ♪

♪ Here where you belong ♪

- [INHALES]
- [KATY] Meanwhile,

I was caught in a web
of guilt and darkness

of my own creation.

Katy, it's customary to speak



when a dignitary asks you a question.

You will design the dress
for Prince Errol's fiancée,

or won't you?

[KATY] How could I possibly

design a wedding dress for Patricia

after accidentally sleeping
with her husband-to-be?

Still waiting, Katy.

- No.
- [EVERYONE GASPS]

- What do you mean?
- [PATRICIA] Why not?

This is your dream.

Every designer in the world
would murder for this chance.

Yes, experienced designers.

Patricia, thank you, truly,

but you will want a household name.



- Like Vera Wang.
- Oh.

Don't say no yet, Katy.
Take a day. Think it over.

Thank you, Ms. Granbilt and
Ms. Keene, for your time.

We'll check in soon,

see how everything's coming along.

Hmm?

Patricia?

[TO HERSELF] Oh, great.

I'm not worried about it at...

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH]

[BOTH GASP]

[BREATHLESSLY] Darling!

Oh! I cannot wait

to turn this fantastical,
arachnid dream of yours

into a real deal!

Look at you! With my direction,

your new time slot will
be the talk of the town!

[PEPPER] And respectfully, may I ask,

why Kiss of the Spider Woman?

Well! It's the perfect showcase

for my drag and
Broadway careers. I mean,

I can channel the artistry
of the window-dresser Molina

and exude the seductive allure

of his muse and tormenter,

the Spider Woman.

And honor the diva
saviors of my youth...

Chita, Conchita, and Vanessa!

- Williams.
- Yes, right. Yes, of course.

Well, between Katy's
costumes, Francois' direction,

and my press connections, I mean,

your Spider Woman will be

the Grand Marshall of the
Pride Parade this summer.

Perfect.

And since you're doing so much already

[IN FRENCH ACCENT] as producer...

I was wondering if maybe you
might want to help finance?

Well,

since you are the Edie
Sedgewick to my Warhol,

why don't we host a presentation

at The Pepper Plant to woo investors?

Wow the audience, collect
the checks. Brilliant!

[PEPPER] And just so I'm clear,

your vision is to adapt
the show and play both

Molina and the Spider
Woman, is that correct?

Yes, it's a one-queen show.

Ugh, could anything be more brilliant?!

Okay, I'm going to put
the invite list together,

and I know just where to start.

[SQUEALS]

[JAZZ MUSIC PLAYING
THROUGH STORE SPEAKERS]

[PEPPER] Josie, I'm sure you've heard

all about Jorge's
show at Molly's Crisis?

Yes, he asked for help
arranging the music.

[PEPPER] Huh. Well, the truth is,

it's in a financial crisis
that rivals Occupy Wall Street,

so I'm hosting a little presentation

at the Pepper Plant to lure investors.

- Oh, that is a great idea.
- [PEPPER] Mm.

I should have asked you to
produce my listening party.

Alex is great, but he's just not...

Pushy? Yeah, you've got to be.

Case in point...

I would like you to invite Alex Cabot

to our presentation
tomorrow, see if he'd like to

put a little money into an
off-off-off Broadway show.

- I don't know, Pep...
- [PEPPER] Come on, Josie.

You bring him to the Plant tomorrow,

and I'll take care of the rest.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

You said that after the listening party,

I'd be turning down gigs,

but so far, crickets.

[AS JOSIE] "Hi, Alex, how was your day?

Isn't it funny this is the first time

you're seeing my apartment?"

Um, so Alex, I love our EP,

but what good does it
do if no one hears it?

Well, someone has.

A scout for the Apollo

is interested in booking you.

Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
Oh, that is my dream...

If you get a few smaller
gigs under your belt first,

which I'm working on, it's just...

the music industry
doesn't quite know me yet.

Oh! Ooh! Mm!

- I can help with that. Okay, so...
- [LAUGHS]

... what if you produced
something else? Right?

You get your name out there.

Jorge's musical needs backers.

There's a presentation tomorrow night.

Jorge's amazing. Count me in.

[SNAPS]

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH]

Hello.

[SIGHS]

Amanda said you had a migraine.

Yes, thanks to you.

- I should explain...
- Save it.

The tremor of your guilty voice

is like a tarantula
crawling inside my skull.

[SIPS] No sane woman would turn down

such an opportunity for herself...

or for this store...
for whatever reason.

Though I shudder to ask,

what is your reason?

[KATY] And that's when
I first saw her...

my personal Spider Woman.

[SPECTRAL VOICE] ♪ Hear my song ♪

♪ Let me hold you ♪

- [HEAVY BREATHING]
- ♪ Here where you belong ♪

Katy, I'm not hearing a reason.

I... I committed to making the costumes

for a musical that my
best friend is producing.

- On Broadway?
- [KATY] No.

It's a bar, Molly's Crisis?

But it is huge.

It's a giant cast with
fifty-five changes,

and I-I can't do both projects.

I don't speak Bohemian.

But are you seriously saying

you're making costumes

for an off-off-Broadway show

instead of designing the centerpiece

of a royal wedding the
entire world will see?

I gave Jorge my word,
and actually I have to run

because he's putting
on a backers' audition

at the Pepper Plant, so...

[CHINA CLATTERING]

- It's willow bark.
- [POURING TEA]

It's supposed to be good for migraines.

Fine, Katy, leave.

your lack of ambition
is only making it worse.

Okay.

♪ And the moon grows dimmer ♪

Hi. Excuse me.

- Hey.
- [INDISTINCT CHATTER]

What are you doing here?

Supporting Jorge.

I've known him since I was 15, you know.

He thought this was Spider-Man:
Turn off the Dark.

Isn't that adorable? [LAUGHS]

Remember when we saw that together?

I do.

I do, except for the
show, it was a great night.

Is that a new jacket? It's nice.

Uh, thanks. Xandra got it for me

as a thank-you for working long hours.

- How have you been?
- Good.

Really good. I, um,

I got asked to design a
wedding dress for Patricia,

who's marrying Prince Errol.

- Are you gonna do it?
- Uh, maybe.

'Course you are. Why wouldn't you?

An opportunity like
that? It's life-changing.

It's funny, Katy, when I saw you

with that Prince at
Lacy's, trying on rings,

part of me thought that somehow
you would start dating him.

- [KATY CHUCKLES]
- It's crazy, right?

[LAUGHS] It's totally crazy.

[LAUGHS, SIGHS]

[PEPPER] Friends.

Welcome to the Pepper Plant!

[APPLAUSE]

Kiss of the Spider Woman

is a bold expression of resilience.

One man, Molina, survives
his tortured existence

by conjuring the
mysterious Spider Woman.

Now, without further ado...

[APPLAUSE]

[LIGHT APPLAUSE]

Errol! What are you doing here?
What if someone sees you?

My security guys did a thorough sweep.

No!

And I had to see you, Katy.

I owe you an explanation.

Yeah, you have one minute to
explain why you lied to me.

I didn't lie to you, I...

I really did end things with Patricia.

But then, our royal engagement
photos came out,

- and my family...
- You can't blame this on them.

They said that it was
too late to back out,

that the scandal would ruin us.

That is so messed up.

I agree, it's perverse.
And that's why I'm here.

I don't care if it's scandalous

I want to be with you.

And if you feel the same way, Katy,

- I'll call off the wedding.
- What?!

No, Errol! No! Th... Uh...

It was a fling. It was a huge mistake,

among the biggest of my life.

We both know that's not true.

Yes, actually, it is true.

And designing Patricia's wedding dress,

that would be another mistake.
It is wrong, on every level...

ethically, artistically...

[GASPS] I couldn't live with myself.

So please, Errol,

please, let's not make this
any worse than it has to be.

[FOOTSTEPS]

Excuse me.

- [KEYS RATTLE IN LOCK]
- [JORGE PANTS]

[DOOR SQUEAKS OPEN]

[DOOR CLOSES]

Guys, as you may have just heard,

a prince just told me that

he wants to leave his
fiancée to be with me.

And meanwhile, his fiancée wants me

to design her wedding
dress. So, what do I do?

- About the prince?
- Or the dress?

- Or both?
- [CLICKS TONGUES]

Well, I'm obviously not
running away with Errol.

Am I? [GASPS]

But is it awful to
design Patricia's dress?

That's like, horrible karma, right?

- Katy, I don't want to alarm you...
- What?

- Don't.
- Don't. Just don't...

[SCREAMS] Oh, my God! Get it off!

Get it off, get it off!

No! Don't kill it! It's a good omen!

- Ugh!
- [JOSIE WHIMPERS]

What do you mean?

So...

how many offers to
invest are we fielding?

Jorge, dear, a wise woman once said

that there can be a
hundred people in a room,

and it doesn't matter if 99 of them

don't believe in you,
so long as one does.

[CHUCKLES, SLURPS]

Didn't get a single bite. [GULPS]

But all is not lost.

I did manage to raise some capital.

Nope. Not interested.

The musical was bizarre
and self-indulgent.

That's what they said about Kinky Boots,

and it won six Tonys.

So, you're saying my brother

actually invested in
that weird drag revival

of Kiss of the Spider Woman?

The man knows art when he sees it.

What can I say?

Be real with me.

What, exactly, did you promise him?

Oh, I should have listened to Josie.

She warned me not to come to you.

[AMERICAN ACCENT] "Don't
waste your time, Pep.

Alex Cabot doesn't take big swings".

You want to take a big swing?

Fine. I'll invest in your musical,

on one condition.

Alex wants Josie to
play the Spider Woman?

Well, that boy is whipped.

Well, he's also just a good businessman.

Make the show a two-hander.

Give Josie the star turn.
Get a wider audience.

In six months' time, we'll transfer

from Molly's Crisis
to the New Amsterdam.

Well, if anyone can make
it happen, it's Jorge.

He's the next Billy Porter.

What? I'm allowed to watch Pose.

I trust KO. I want in.

But if this Hail Mary of a show

actually does make it to Broadway,

I get to play the
Spider Woman, not Josie.

And before you question my bonafides,

I did six summers at Stage Door Manor.

I can see it now. [CHUCKLES]

Your name in lights.

Alexandra Cabot

as the Spider Woman.

Josie McCoy as

the Spider Woman.

Hell no!

I'm playing the Spider Woman.

I mean, the whole point of this show

is to give Ginger the spotlight.

And now you're telling me

that Josie's gonna be the Spider Woman?

Jorge, darling, there
won't be a show, all right,

without the Cabots' money.

And they want a more...

traditional version.

You as Molina,

and Josie as the Spider Woman.

We all know that Molina is
the true star part, right?

Excuse me, I'm sorry, Ms. Chita Rivera

and Ms. Vanessa Williams

played the Spider Woman on Broadway.

Who played Molina?

Do you know?

Neither do I!

[FRANCOIS] Once we open on Broadway,

we'll pull a bait and switch

and cast you as the Spider Woman.

- Right, Pepper?
- Absolutely!

[CHUCKLES] I can't wait to see

Ginger's name up in lights.
[AWKWARD CHUCKLE]

I'll consider it.

But only because

my dad may not be ready
to see me in drag yet,

if I even decide to invite him.

And...

[CLICKS TONGUE] ... you
two are looking at

one unhappy queen.

[GLASS SLAMS ON TABLE]

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

Hi. Amanda said you wanted to see me?

Sit. Tell me something, Katy.

Why do you need to
make fifty-five costumes

for a one-man show?

I know what designing the royal
wedding dress means for Lacy's,

but I have a very good
reason to turn it down.

Would it have anything to do

with the way Prince Errol looks at you?

[SIGHS]

I slept with him.

But I thought that he had
ended it with Patricia.

I couldn't live with myself

if my entire career was built
around her wedding dress.

Funny.

I couldn't live with
myself if I threw away

the biggest opportunity of my life

because of a man.

Gloria, this will not end well.

Katy, design this wedding dress.

Not for Patricia, for Lacy's.

And for yourself.

Okay, what's the big emergency now?

Well, it turns out your manager

is much more cutthroat
than you gave him credit for.

He wants to invest in Jorge's musical.

- Mmm!
- But only if you agree

to play the Spider Woman.

Oh, Pepper.

I can't do that to Jorge.

Well, he's going to
lose the show anyway,

without Alex's money.

So, technically, you'd be doing him

a huge favor.

And may I remind you

that no one cared about
Jennifer Hudson's music

until she did Dreamgirls...

[SING-SONG] and she won an Oscar.

Okay. I'm in.

But only if it's okay with Jorge.

Fine.

Hmm.

[SIGHS]

[APPROACHING FOOTSTEPS]

Ooh! Clock this.

Are you gonna design
Patricia's wedding dress?

[KATY] Do I really have a choice?

Gloria won't take no for an answer.

And also, if I don't design the dress,

will that give Errol the wrong message,

that somehow I don't
support his marriage?

Oh, girl, to be wanted by a prince,

how very Cinderella in Into the Woods!

If I solve your problem,
will you solve mine?

Yes, deal.

Design a wedding dress that...

underwhelms Miss Patricia.

That way she'll be the one

letting you down easy. [CLICKS TONGUE]

I can't deliver a
purposefully bad design, Jorge.

Gloria will strangle me with a veil!

And that could haunt my
career for the rest of my life.

I didn't say it had to be bad.

Design a masterpiece,

but give it a little crack.

It'll turn Patricia off.

Katy, if anybody can do this, it's you.

You're a genius with complete
control of her instrument.

That might actually work.

Great. Now, can we get back to me?

I don't want Josie to
play the Spider Woman!

Jorge, when we were kids,
Molina was the whole reason

you fell in love with the
musical in the first place.

You saw yourself in him.

- No, I know...
- And also,

Halloween, fourth grade,

you wanted to dress up as Molina.

[SCOFFS] Until my dad said I
had to be Danny Zuko instead.

Yeah, well, this time,
your dad doesn't get a say.

Get up. Up up!

I got an idea.

Where are we going?

Consider this a refresher

in the joys of being...

And playing!

... a window dresser. Francois,

let's show Jorge how it's done.

♪ Dressing them up I love
the dressing them up ♪

♪ The subtle tilt of a
hat touches like that ♪

♪ Make me the best of the lot ♪

♪ At dressing them up I
was the cream of the crop ♪

♪ And darling guess what? ♪

♪ Balenciaga, it was! ♪

♪ Dressing them up I was
the crème de la crme ♪

♪ As I adjusted each hem ♪

♪ I kept on dazzling them ♪

♪ At my particular store ♪

♪ Which was the best in the town ♪

♪ You'd never catch
them wearing a frown ♪

♪ Or catch them dressing me down ♪

♪ For my finesse at dressing them up ♪

♪ Raise that skirt,
just an inch or two ♪

♪ Add some rouge, just a pinch or two ♪

♪ Stuff that gauze, make her bustier ♪

♪ Ooh! That frock, too much red in it! ♪

♪ I would not be caught dead in it ♪

♪ Well... ♪

♪ You'll never catch
them wearing a frown ♪

♪ Or catch them dressing me down ♪

♪ For my finesse at dressing them up! ♪

♪ I had the touch thank you very much! ♪

Okay, okay, y'all made your point.

I'll share the stage with Josie, but...

you better believe I'm
stealing every scene I'm in.

In that case, Jorge, you
have to invite your dad

and show him what a star you are.

[LUISA]
Ay, no, Papi, under the sink.

Mom, Dad, what's going on here?

[GROANS] Your mother is trying
to give me another hernia.

- Que basta.
- [DOOR CLOSES]

[LUISA] Four units

have reported spiders,

so we're taking precautions.

Last thing we need is an infestation.

Ignacio in 2C has arachnophobia.

Ay, por favor, he needs to relax.

Okay, there are worse things
than a few extra bugs around.

You're telling me.

I've been hearing about
a string of attacks

on gays in the neighborhood.

You need to be careful, Jorge.

No more walking in the
street alone at night.

Mami, sadly, homophobia
is not a new thing.

In more positive news,

your son is starring
in his own production

of Kiss of the Spider Woman!

Mijo, that's fantastic!

I love Kiss of the Spider Woman.

I saw it on Broadway,
with Miss Chita Rivera...

[LUISA, JORGE] ... twelve times!

Will you guys come see the show?

We're gonna go up at Molly's Crisis.

Of course! We wouldn't miss it!

Great! So...

Bueno, Papi, keep it up.

We have two more floors
to spray. [CHUCKLES]

- So weird...
- Papi,

is this a good idea?

Well, you guys always say
you wanna see me perform.

- Now's your chance, Mami.
- Yeah, tell me the truth,

are you playing Spider Woman as Ginger?

Because I'm not sure how your
father will react to this,

- seeing you as a woman.
- Don't worry.

I'm just playing Molina.

But what if I was

performing as Ginger? Would...

Would you be ashamed of me?

I have never been ashamed of you.

Not once. You're my son.

My perfect son.

♪ You could never shame me ♪

♪ There, I've told you so ♪

♪ Many things confuse me ♪

♪ But this I know ♪

♪ Some other ♪

♪ And you could never shame me ♪

♪ Let me say out loud ♪

♪ I've a son ♪

♪ Me ♪

♪ Proud ♪

Your father and I love you so much.

Maybe one day you can
tell him about Ginger,

and I will be right there with you.

But trust me, he's not ready.

Not yet.

Patricia...

this is what I'm seeing
for your wedding dress.

Surprising, right?

Yeah, I wanted to keep it

simple, clean and timeless.

Well, I like timeless, but...

also, I want it to look
at least a little royal.

Oh, God, Patricia, of course you do.

And you should.

I will admit,

I tried going bigger, but
nothing felt right. I...

I think I might have

bitten off more than I can chew.

I just think I might
be too green for this.

So, if you want to switch to
a more established designer,

which makes total sense, I
will completely understand,

and I will put you in
touch with the right person.

I am still thinking Vera Wang.

Katy,

you are not too green,

you're just a little scared.

Try again.

For me.

I know that you can get this right.

Great. [LAUGHS]

[PEPPER] So here's
what I need you to do.

On the left, we have money in

and on the right, expenses.

Well, if I'm reading this correctly,

you have twice as much money as you need

to produce the show.

[CLEARS THROAT]

Jorge gets his show,

Alex and Xandra each see

what their money made possible,

and we pocket a little
something for the Pepper Plant.

Best of all, nobody gets hurt.

What do you think?

Brilliant.

[LAUGHS] You're brilliant.

Teach me everything.

[SIGHS] Thanks.

[SIGHS]

So, you're seeing ghosts now, Katy,

that's what you're telling me?

No, not ghosts. A specter.

A manifestation of my guilt.

Guilt. Explain that to me.

When Errol and I got together,
I wasn't betraying anyone

because I truly thought
he and Patricia were done.

But they are together now,
and making Patricia's dress,

I cannot help it, that
also feels like a betrayal,

and I just don't think I
can live with the guilt.

Oh? You don't think you
can live with the guilt?

Well, I'll say this one more time.

You will design this dress.

I look forward to seeing Patricia

in the poufy, princessy
dress of her dreams.

Now, if you'll excuse me,

my to-do list awaits.

[SIGHS]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[RIPPING, CUTTING]

[TEARING]

[SHEARING]

[FRANCOIS GASPS] Oh, Katy!

What have you done?

[HUFFS] I can't do it, Francois.

I cannot design this dress for Patricia.

[SIGHS]

Francois, I...

I slept with Prince Errol.

And putting myself in Patricia's shoes,

I wouldn't want to walk
down the aisle in a dress

made by someone that my husband-to-be

had feelings for.

Errol bought me flowers.

He said that he wanted
to leave Patricia for me.

And what did you say?

No, of course.

Oh.

I know it's crazy to
give up such a huge shot,

and Gloria might
actually kill me, but...

I have to listen to my heart.

I-I can't make this dress.

Your moral compass is a perplexing,

beautiful thing, Katy.

But, Katy,

I don't want your integrity,

or this abomination,

to torpedo your career.

So,

may I make one suggestion?

- [KATY] Guy. Guy. Hi.
- Yeah.

- Excuse me.
- So sorry.

Francois told me that you were
getting your atelier set up,

but right now, I really need your help.

So, you have designed

eleven very high-profile
wedding dresses,

my favorite being the show-stopper
you debuted in Milan.

Yeah. Tabloids have a field
day anytime I do bridal.

For the record, I never actually
slept with any of those brides.

It's just hearsay.

[WHISPERS] I wish I could say the same.

You... and the prince!

I know, it's hard to believe,
but yet here we are.

Well, if it makes it easier,
think of it like this...

You gave Errol his last hurrah,

and now he'll be forever
faithful to Patricia.

I didn't come to you for advice, Guy,

I need to ask you for a favor.

♪ How is he? ♪

♪ I want to see him ♪

I don't know how much
more of this he can endure.

What makes a man like that so brave?

[JOSIE, JORGE] Love, you fool, love!

[GASPS]

That's my line.

[SIGHS]

Josie, girl, I'm sorry,

but I am gonna have to take back

the role of the Spider Woman.

Alex got the talent booker

from the Apollo to come see me in this.

Well, can't you invite
them to something else?

Jorge, you have the
biggest role in the show.

Why can't you just let me
do my thing as Spider Woman?

Because. [SCOFFS]

[INHALES]

I've been too scared
to take the leap, but...

I want my dad to see the real me,

to see me

in drag.

I know it's just a baby step,

but it's still a step.

Ladies...

call me Hal Prince

because I just had a brilliant idea.

[ZIPS]

Katy, it's...

it's gorgeous.

I...

I didn't design or make

this dress, Patricia.

It's a Guy LaMontagne original.

One day I will be ready,

but until then, you deserve a designer

who will elevate you beyond this moment.

Guy is that designer.

And I knew that this
would be your dream dress

because it's mine, too.

Thank you.

[GLORIA] Well...

let's get you out of that dream

and wrap this up, shall we?

[SIGHS]

God, Katy, leave a man waiting.

What did Pattycake say?

[KATY] She loved it.

So...

thank you for saving me.

I was in way over my head.

You want to buy me dinner
as a real thank-you?

Ah, I can't.

My friends are doing this
off-Broadway show downtown.

I'm headed there right now.

Unless...

you wouldn't want to
go with me, would you?

Uhh...

I designed the costumes.

Okay, I'm intrigued, but I might
make fun of the show after.

You know, you almost seem
like a nice person sometimes,

but you're actually
terrible, aren't you?

Well. That depends which one you prefer.

[HIGH-PITCHED] The teeth, the
lips, the tip of the tongue!

[LOW-PITCHED] The teeth, the
lips, the tip of the tongue!

I'm here! I'm here! Hi!

Not late. I am here.

So, as luck would have
it, we have two options

for the Spider Woman's final look.

[UNZIPS]

[JORGE, JOSIE GASP]

So, who am I fitting?

[KISSES]

[CROWD CHEERS]

Oh, my God!

Oh, my God, that was so good! I love it!

Bravo! Bravo!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

Oh, my God! Wasn't that wonderful, Luis?

Si, mi amor.

My son's a star.

[APPLAUSE CONTINUES]

[CORK POPS]

Whoo!

Congrats, my little spiders!

- [DIDI] Yeah! We did it!
- Uh-huh!

- [CLINKS]
- Bravo!

We are so proud of you, Jorge!

- [CHUCKLES]
- [LUIS] You were incredible, Mijo.

Really! And my favorite part?

- [JORGE] What?
- Is when you kissed Josie.

[LUIS CHUCKLES] You know,

you can change out of your costume

and take the makeup
off. The show's over now.

Pops, I've been a little busy,

but don't you worry,
I'll change. [SCOFFS]

[BERNARDO] Hey, I
thought you were amazing.

As Molina and as the Spider Woman.

And as far as I'm concerned,
you never have to change.

[KISSES]

So, I was just thinking.

Have you ever tried your hand at acting?

[SCOFFS] I did a couple
plays in high school,

but, nah, not for me.

Well, what about modeling?

[TALENT BOOKER] Ah, Josie.

Alex invited me.

You were great up there.

Thank you! [LAUGHS]

But are you ready to do some gigs

with your own music?

Yes. Yes, I am.

I'll be in touch.

I'm thinking the Apollo.

- [EXHALES]
- [SHOOTING SOUND]

- [CHUCKLES]
- Oh!

- Mwah! Oh!
- [LAUGHING, SQUEALS]

You know, Katy, as I start
working on my new collection,

I'm gonna be bringing on an apprentice,

if you're interested... ?

I'm interested. Very much so!

- [BOTH LAUGHING]
- Stop it!

Ah! Okay, okay. Favorite number?

Hmm. Anything with you in it.

Ooh, that's a good answer.

Hmm.

Hey, I'm sorry your dad
said that stuff earlier.

Don't listen to him.

You should be proud.

I am.

[DISTANT CAR ALARM]

Most of all, I'm glad

I got to share tonight with Josie,

and my friends, you know, my family

and even my dad.

And especially you.

[KISSING]

[JORGE CHUCKLES]

[METAL DOORS RATTLE]

[KISSING]

Hmm.

[DISTANT CALLING WHISTLE]

[MAN] Well, what do we have here?

Babe. Babe.

[BELL RINGING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[MAN] Greg, move your head!
