This is the scene where "woman magnet" in the play, Tony Perez, sings the Joe Cuba oldie "Bang! Bang!"... "Cornbread, hog maws, and chitlins... Cornbread!" Since I wrote the play, of course it is a favorite of mine. Take a listen below. Enjoy!
NEGRA walks toward the phone. CLINTON stands
LIKE you said... It’s late. She’s probably asleep.
Don’t wake her!
Yeah... Guess you’re right. Well...?
OH! Here, the muffins...
NEGRA (TAKES THE BAG)
Ummm... Smells good. Thanks. Have a seat. TONY'll be
back in a minute!
So... Seems like you two are inseparable since he got
out of prison. Don’t come around much, but it seems
like whenever I see you, TONY’S not far behind.
That is more fiction than fact, CLINTON.
CLINTON begins to space out again.
Are you alright? CLINTON? Are you well?
Ah... SURE! I’m good, good... Oh, I get it you’re like
Florence Nightengale! Guess being a nurse and all makes
you overly concerned... Kinda parenoid, perhaps? (WEIRD
I wouldn’t say that--
TONY walks in with two six packs.
ALL RIGHT! Ice cold cervezas! Here ya go! (HANDING A
BEER TO CLINTON) So man, what you been up to?
Ah, the usual. Doin’ some consulting for the
government. Gotta fly over to Kuwait to do some
environmental tests. Then--
TONY cuts off CLINTON's bragard ramblings.
TONY (TO NEGRA)
PUT ON SOME MUSIC! (TO CLINTON) Yeah, go on man!
A popular song plays in the background.
Oh. Then I’m going to be heading down to NASA to do an
TONY sings and hums to the music drowning out
CORNBREAD, HOG MAWS AND CHITLINS, CORNBREAD!
Ahem... I better be going. Hope MISS MILLIE enjoys the
muffins. I have to drive all the way back to the Island
Why drive back tonight? Why don’t you stay downstairs
at your mother’s?
NO! I -I can’t- don’t like to stay... here...
NEGRA stands and sees CLINTON to the door.
Oh. Well, okay CLINTON. Take it easy. Get home safe.
(TO TONY) You know, you have the manners of a--
FUCK DAT GUY!
NEGRA shakes her head in disbelief. She then heads
into the bathroom. TONY sits in anticipation. Counting...
One-two-three... Oh shit...
