(The PRINCIPALS emerge from the church.)
MIMI (to ROGER)
It's true you sold your guitar and bought a car?
It's true -- I'm leaving now for Santa Fe
It's true you're with this yuppie scum?
You said you'd never speak to him again
Who said that you have any say
In who she says things to at all?
Who said that you should
Stick your nose in other people's ...
Who said I was talking to you?
We used to have this fight each night
She'd never admit I existed
He was the same way -- he was always
"Run away -- hit the road
Don't commit" -- you're full of shit
She's in denial
He's in denial
Didn't give an inch
When I gave a mile
I gave a mile
Gave a mile to who?
MARK & BENNY
Come on guys chill!
MIMI & JOANNE
I'd be happy to die for a taste of what Angel had
Someone to live for -- unafraid to say I love you
All your words are nice Mimi
But love's not a three way street
You'll never share real love
Until you love yourself -- I should know
You all said you'd be cool today
So please -- for my sake...
I can't believe he's gone
(to ROGER) I can't believe you're going
I can't believe this family must die
Angel helped us believe in love
I can't believe you disagree
I can't believe this is goodbye
(MAUREEN and JOANNE look at each other.)
I missed you...
I missed your smell...
I missed your mouth...Your...
(They kiss, but MAUREEN pulls away.)
No, baby, you said ow...What?
Well, you bit my tongue...
No, I didn't.
You did -- I'm bleeding.
No, it isn't...
I think I should know
Let me see--
She doesn't believe me!
I was only trying to...
(They laugh, hug, and wave goodbye, exiting stage right. The
PASTOR from the church emerges on the above.)
Thomas B. Collins...
(The PASTOR exits above and COLLINS exits into the church.
BENNY stands off to the side as MIMI approaches ROGER, who
turns away. She hesitates before leaving with BENNY. ROGER and
MARK are left alone.)
I hear there are great restaurants out west
Some of the best. How could she?
How could you let her go?
You just don't know ... How could we lose Angel?
Maybe you'll see why when you s escaping your pain
At least now if you try -- Angel's death won't be in vain
His death is in vain
(MIMI reappears up left, in the shadows. She overhears ROGER and
Are you insane?
There so much to care about
There's me -- there's Mimi
Mimi's got her baggage, too
So do you
Who are you to tell me what I know, what to do
But who, Mark, are you?
"Mark has got his work"
They say "Mark lives for his work"
And "Mark's in love with his work"
Mark hides in his work
But from what?
From facing your failure, facing your loneliness
Facing the fact you live a lie
Yes, you live a lie -- tell you why
You're always preaching not to be numb
When that's how you thrive
You pretend to create and observe
When you really detach from feeling alive
Perhaps it's because I'm the one of us to survive
Mimi still loves Roger
Is Roger really jealous
Or afraid that Mimi's weak
Mimi did look pale
Mimi's gotten thin
Mimi's running out of time
Roger's running out the door
No more! Oh no!
I've gotta go
Hey, for somebody who's always been let down
Who's heading out of town?
For someone who longs for a community of his own,
Who's with his camera, alone?
(ROGER takes a step to go, then ss, turns.)
I hate the fall
(ROGER turns to go and sees MIMI.)
You don't want baggage without lifetime guarantees
You don't want to watch me die
I just came to say
Came to say goodbye, love, goodbye
Just came to say
One blaze of
Have to find...
(ROGER exits. BENNY returns. MIMI steps away.)
Please don't touch me
I need to go away
I know a place -- a clinic
Maybe -- could you?
Came to say goodbye, love, goodbye
Just came to say
(MIMI runs away. After a moment, COLLINS quicjkly enters, with the
PASTOR trailing behind him.)
Off the premises now, we give no handouts here!
What happened to Rest In Peace?!
Off the premises, queer!
That's no way to send a boy to meet his maker!
They had to know we couldn't pay the undertaker.
(To COLLINS) Don't you worry 'bout him.
(To PASTOR) Hey, I'll take care of it!
(The PASTOR acknowledges BENNY and exits.)
Must be nice to have money.
I think it's only fair to tell you, you just paid for the funeral of the
who killed your dog.
I know... I always hated that dog...
Let's pay him off, and then get drunk.
I can't... I have a meeting.
BENNY & COLLINS
Punk! Let's go.
(COLLINS and BENNY exit.)
Hi. Mark Cohen here, reporting for Buzzline. Back to you, Alexi!
Coming up next, vampire welfare queens who are compulsive
bowlers... Oh my God, what am I doing?
