On stage the five-musician band performs under a wooden platform surrounded by railing. BENNY This past year's rent which I let slide MARK Let slide? MARK Two days ago I was bumped BENNY You still dating her? MIMI No -- I think that I dropped my stash ROGER I know I've seen you out and about When I used to go out Your candle's out MIMI I'm illin' -- I had it when I walked in the door It was pure -- Is it on the floor? (MIMI gets down on all fours and starts searching the floor for her stash. That's where I work - I dance - help me look ROGER Yes! JEFFERSON For Mummy's sake, Kitten No Doc Martens this time and wear a dress ... (COLLINS carries ANGEL's pickle tub, now filled with provisions.) MARK & COLLINS Bustelo -- Marlboro Banana by the bunch A box of Captain Crunch will taste so good COLLINS And firewood MARK Look -- it's Santa Claus COLLINS Hold your applause ROGER Oh hi COLLINS 'Oh hi' after seven months? Let's begin ALL There's only us There's only this ... Barging in on me and my guitar Little girl -- hey The door is that way You better go you know The fire's out anyway Take your powder -- take your candle Your sweet whisper I just can't handle Well take your hair in the moonlight Your brown eyes -- goodbye, goodnight I should tell you I should tell you I should tell you I should -- no! JOANNE It is, Maureen MAUREEN The mixer doesn't have a case Don't give me that face (MAUREEN smacks JOANNE's ass as she exits. (ROGER picks up an electric guitar and starts to tune it.) MARK Maureen Johnson, back from her spectacular one-night engagement at the eleventh street lot, Will sing native american tribal chants backwards through her vocoder, While accompanying herself on the electric cello -- Which she has never studied. No latex rubber rubber Fire latex rubber latex bummer Lover bummer (The music explodes into a fevered rhythmic heat as ANGEL is revealed in a lone spotlight, dancing wildly.) ANGEL Take me Take me Today for you Tomorrow for me Today me Tomorrow you Tomorrow you Love you Love you I love You I love You! Pan left -- close on the steeple of the church How did I get here? Christmas Christmas Eve -- last year How could a night so frozen be so scalding hot? Why are entire years strewn On the cutting room floor of memory When single frames from one magic night Forever flicker in close-up On the 3D Imax of my mind That's poetic That's pathetic Why did Mimi knock on Roger's door And Collins choose that phone booth Back where Angel set up his drums Why did Maureen's equipment break down Why am I the witness And when I capture it on film Will it mean that it's the end And I'm alone Top (The PRINCIPALS emerge from the church.) MIMI (to ROGER) It's true you sold your guitar and bought a car?
Het lichaam van Mark de geest is vermoord door een lid van de Chinese maffia, genaamd Tony Wong.
Om zijn eigen dood te ensceneren doet Wong zijn ring aan de vinger van de vermoorde Mark, om nadien zijn lichaam te verbranden.
Mark is niet zeker waarom hij gedood werd, en hij vertelt Piper dat als zijn lichaam niet vlug begraven wordt er volgens de Chinese mythologie de demon Yama, poortwachter van de hel zijn ziel kan opeisen.
Right like we're goin' right, or right like we're goin' left?
'Cause let me tell ya, thosefarm boys are grounded!
