Anna: No… You’re the only one that can.
Duke: Then let me. Let me love you, Anna.
Anna: Without any questions?
Duke: For now. Trust me.

Crazy in love am I.

Ted: Being in the choir all those years finally paid off, my dear. You were
Terri: Was I really?
Tony: Are you kidding? Did you hear the applause?
Tania: You were terrific.
Jake: (hugging Terri) Yes. And you’d better remember me when you need a
lawyer to negotiate your contract.
Terri: Jake, that’s not going to happen.
Jake: It’d better. How else am I going to get rich?
All laughing. Sean and Monica approach the group.
Monica: Terri. You were wonderful. Just terrific.
Terri: Well, thank you.
Sean: You’re welcome. I never realized you were so talented.
Terri: Well, umm. Tiffany actually did all the work.
Tiffany: Well, not all of it but I did help somebody out.
Ted: You are quite a producer, Tiffany.
Tiffany: Well, actually I am. Meanwhile, all this wonderful dance music is going
to waste. Shall we Ted?

Terri: (to Patrick) Was I okay?
Patrick: Okay? Are you kidding? You were terrific.
Terri is relieved.

Patrick: Okay, then let’s do it.
Terri: Okay, alright.
Patrick leads Terri to the dance floor. Duke approaches Anna at the bar.
Duke: Terri was very good, wasn’t she?
Anna: Yes. She was wonderful. You have a real eye for talent.
Duke: I have an eye for… for beautiful women.
Anna: That too, I’m sure.
Duke: I used to enjoy looking at beautiful women but now I… now I can only
look at one.
Anna smiles at Duke’s flattery.
Duke: Will you dance with me?
Anna: No. We haven’t finished our conversation.
Duke: I thought we had.
Anna: I don’t understand you. You know, you say you love me…
Duke: (interrupts) I do… I do love you.
Anna: But then you won’t let me in.
Duke: Anna, you’ve already filled every corner of my heart.
Anna: I don’t mean that. I want to know whatever it is that you’re holding
back from me.
Duke: All I can tell you is that… that in two weeks every thing there is wrong
now will be right. In two weeks. Can you wait? Just for a little while.
Anna: I don’t know. I’d like to say yes, but I honestly don’t know.
