Copyright 2010 Paul Salerni/Kate Light/Carl Reiner All Rights Reserved


Instrumentation: Alto Saxophone Trumpet Trombone Percussion (Vibraphone, Xylophone, Marimba, Triangle, Sand Blocks, Woodblock, Trap Set) Piano 2 Violins Viola Violoncello Contrabass

Scene 1: A Golf Course and its Clubhouse (Buddy, Mel, Rob, Joe, Waiter) Scene 2: The Petrie’s Living Room (Laura and Rob) Scene 3: The Petrie’s Living Room (Laura and Millie) Scene 4: The Golf Course Clubhouse (Laura, Millie, and Joe) Scene 5: The Writer’s Room for the Alan Brady Show/The Petrie’s Living Room (Sally, Buddy, Rob, Laura, Millie, Mel) Scene 6: The Petrie’s Living Room (Laura, Joe, Rob, Sally) Scene 7: The Petrie’s Living Room (Laura and Rob) Performance notes: The number of strings is the minimum. More can be added at the discretion of the conductor. The typewriter part in Scene 5 can be played onstage or can be played in the pit. If it is played in the pit, the person playing the Waiter, assuming they are musical, can perform this part. A manual typewriter should be used and may need some slight amplification.

Say, I wanna thank you for letting me join you today. ROB: It was our pleasure, Joe. I think you were the stabilizing influence here. When you next coming out our way? JOE: I’m gonna try to sneak away for a couple of hours next Friday somehow. A tempo 126

ROB: Well, Joe, how ‘bout a cup of coffee? JOE: Love one. Do you have time? ROB: I am on a five-hour pass. My wife happens to be a doll. (To waiter) Can we have a couple of cups of coffee over here? JOE: Your wife doesn’t mind you having fun without her, eh? ROB: No. As a matter of fact, getting me out of the house this morning was more for her enjoyment than it was for mine; I was pretty surly. JOE: Yeah, golf has a way of relaxing people. ROB: Yeah, especially when you shoot an eight-five! (Waiter brings coffee.) Laura does know me pretty well; she seems to know what’ll make me happy. JOE: You’re a lucky guy! ROB: Yeah. I picked me a good one all right. JOE: Well, here’s to your wife! (They toast with coffee cups.) ROB: Thank you! JOE: Laura, was it? ROB: Yeah, Laura! (Raises cup.) Hey, how’s about let’s drink to your wife! JOE: I’m afraid we can’t. I don’t have a wife. ROB: A handsome dog like you? How’s come some girl never corralled you? JOE: It’s a long story. I’ll bore you with it next time. ROB: That’s a deal! I gotta warn you, though; I’m a writer. I’ll probably adapt it and make a hit movie out of it, called “The Life and Love of Joe…” I’m sorry, Joe, what’s your name…? JOE: Coogan. I’ll tell you one thing; it’s gonna be a short movie. I’ve only been in love once, and that was a long time ago. As a matter of fact, the girl’s name was Laura! ROB: That’s a coincidence! JOE: Sure is! I was in college at the time. I never knew I could write poetry until then. ROB: Really inspired you, huh? JOE: I spent all my time writing sonnets and sending them to her. ROB: (Chuckles) I wrote some poems to my Laura. Well, not poems really; kind of more like...songs.

JOE: Maybe Shakespeare was wrong. Maybe there is something in a name. ROB: Have you ever noticed how many heroines in the movies and television and books are named Laura? JOE: That's true, isn't it. ROB: Yeah. Whatever happened to your Laura? JOE: She ran off and got married. ROB: You mean just like that? JOE: Well, not exactly. She joined a USO troupe to entertain servicemen. She was a dancer. ROB (Taken aback—it’s the same LAURA.): A dancer? JOE: Yeah, last time I heard, she wrote and told me about this sargeant she met in some camp in Missouri. ROB (Nervously): Uh, Camp Crowder? JOE: I think that was it! I assume she married him; I haven’t heard from her since. ROB (Obviously uncomfortable): Well, that’s...that’s amazing. JOE: Is it? ROB: You..you’re not still carrying a torch for her or anything, are ya? JOE: No, no, nothing like that. Would you care for anything else? ROB: No, I think I’ve gotta go. JOE: I have to be running too. Will you be playing again soon? ROB: Uh…uh...I don’t know. JOE: I’ll be out here Friday afternoon at about 3:30. ROB: 3:30. If I can, I will. (Shakes hands.) JOE: Good! ROB: Thanks for the coffee, Joe. JOE: You’re welcome, Rob. (ROB exits) WAITER: He called you Joe! JOE (Reaching into his pocket for money.): Well, that’s my name. WAITER: I know, but it sounds funny to hear someone call you that. JOE: Some people can’t play their regular game when they know who I am. WAITER: You mean they can’t cheat when they know. JOE: Well, let’s just say they become inhibited when they know I’m a priest. (Smiles)

ROB: And...just in case you’re interested, he didn’t happen to get fat. He’s still pretty charming and handsome. I don’t think it’s any coincidence he ran into me on the second tee this afternoon. LAURA: Rob, you couldn’t mean... ROB: Well, he could have easily have arranged it! LAURA: For what purpose? ROB: To find out about the stability of our marriage, that’s why! LAURA: Oh darling, you know you don’t believe that! ROB: Well, I don’t know. I just don’t trust your friend Mr. Coogan. Too nice. LAURA: Rob, darling, please forgive me for saying that you read the sonnets. ROB: I forgive you for that LAURA: Well, darling, you have to understand why I thought you read them. ROB: I understand that! LAURA: Well, what don’t you understand? 137

(Laura and Millie enter dressed to play golf.) LAURA: Boy, this is the stupidest idea in the whole world, and I’m going home! MILLIE: Without finding out why you kept those sonnets all these years and why you didn’t burn them when Rob told you to? LAURA: I know why I kept them; I kept them because they’re beautiful and I didn’t burn them because I consider them literature and I’m against any form of book-burning; now let’s go home. MILLIE: Now wait a minute, we’re all dressed to play golf and we’re here on a golf course, so why don’t we just play a little golf? LAURA: Because I decided I don’t want to see Joe Coogan again! I’m going home. (Turns to go, and bumps smack into JOE in priest attire. They apologize simultaneously.) JOE: I beg your pardon, I’m awfully sorry... LAURA: I’m sorry, Father, I didn’t see...(Realizing) Are you who I think you are? MILLIE: Well, of course he is, he’s a priest, who would you think...Oh my goodness... LAURA: Joe? JOE: Laura? LAURA: Father Joe, Joe Coogan? JOE: How wonderful to see you again, Laura! LAURA: Well, it’s wonderful to see you too! Well, what have you been doing? Oh...(laughs) Oh, um, I’d like you meet my friend, Mildred Helper. Mildred, this is friend Joe, my father Joe, Joe Coogan. Mildred Helper. JOE: Nice to meet you, Mildred. Well, how’ve you been, Laura? LAURA: (very nervous and twittery) Just fine, fine, thank you, and...and you? JOE: Fine; I assume you have a family by now? LAURA: Oh, yes, yes, very happy. JOE: I’m glad to hear it. LAURA: Thank you. Well, would you like to play some golf? JOE: I’m afraid I can’t. I just had a phone call, something I have to take care of. LAURA: Oh, gee, well, that’s a shame. I’d really like to have chatted with you! JOE: So would I! I’d like to meet your husband, your family. LAURA: Oh, well, we’d love that. Would you like to have dinner tonight, or...? JOE: Tonight? LAURA: Well, the next day, any time you say! JOE: I may be free tonight. LAURA: Oh, wonderful. Good, Millie, do you have a piece of fish, I mean a piece of paper, well, uh, fish, ‘cause you’re a Friday! Do you? MILLIE: Yeah, right JOE: Say, you know; this really is a coincidence! LAURA: What is? JOE: Well, I was talking about you just the other day, right here in this room! Say, I even mentioned the sonnets I used to write to you. You remember? LAURA: The sonnets? Oh, the sonnets! Of course I remember the sonnets. Millie, uh, do you have a... (fade-out on LAURA, MILLIE, lights stay up on JOE.)

LAURA: Thank you, Millie. That’s the address, there. JOE: Good. What time would you like me to come? LAURA: Oh, seven-ish, for dinner. JOE: Good! Give me a chance to see what kind of a cook you turned out to be. MILLIE: Laura’s a great cook, one of the great cooks! JOE: I’m sure she is! Well, I’ll see you tonight. LAURA: Oh, fine. JOE: Nice meeting you, Mildred! See you later, Laura! LAURA AND MILLIE: ‘Bye! (JOE leaves. LAURA turns, astonished, to MILLIE) LAURA: Joe Coogan’s a priest! MILLIE: Why didn’t Rob tell you that? LAURA: Maybe he didn’t know! MILLIE: How could he not know; he’s dressed just like a real priest! LAURA: He is a real priest! MILLIE: Well, you know what I mean... LAURA: Maybe Rob didn’t see him in his clerical... MILLIE: Of course, he saw him out on the golf course! (Getting ideas) Laura, you know what would be funny? LAURA: No, Millie, that wouldn’t be funny! MILLIE: How did you know what I was going to say? LAURA: I thought of it too.

SALLY (Looking into a hand-mirror): Why you’re not married yet I’ll never understand. You’re gorgeous! BUDDY: Listen to this one: Alan says, “You know folks, today those foreign cars are so small, I put out my hand to turn a corner, and one of them ran up my sleeve!” SALLY: That's good. ROB (Distracted): Sure, sure, put it in. BUDDY: Hey, Rob, you seem awful serious for a comedy writer. Gonna tell us what it is or is it going to be a staring contest? ROB: Turns out Joe Coogan is Laura’s old flame and he used to write her stacks of love sonnets. I think he may still be carrying a torch for her SALLY: Who's Joe Coogan? (ROBs phone rings. Lights up on LAURA on phone, MILLIE leaning in to listen.) ROB: Hello. LAURA: Hi, darling. Guess what? I nvited Joe Coogan to dinner with us tonight. ROB: (Incredulously) What did you say? LAURA: I said, I invited Joe Coogan to have dinner with us tonight. ROB: Laura, where did you happen to meet Joe Coogan? LAURA: Well, at the golf course... ROB: At the golf course! LAURA: Yeah... ROB: You went out there with the hope of bumping into him, didn't ya? LAURA: Rob, I must say, you're being very un...un... ROB: Un-what? LAURA: Well, un-something! and I object to your tone! ROB: You're gonna hear a dial tone in a minute because I'm gonna hang up! LAURA: Well, Rob, why are you so angry? ROB: I'm not angry! LAURA: But I can't call it off now, Rob. You will be home, won't you...? ROB (tensely): Oh, I'll be home! LAURA: Good. Well, Rob, darling, if you're not angry, why are you going to... (click) hang up? MILLIE: You, uh, didn't tell Rob that Joe's a priest. LAURA: Well, he didn't give me a chance to. Anyway, I'm glad. Now he'll see how foolish he is to act the way he just did. ROB: I'm not angry! I'm scared, that's all. This isn't something for which I was prepared, that's all. I didn't worry when I met Phil Cabot or Jim Darling...so why am I worried now? What's so different about Joe? Well, nothing. Well, everything. He's serious, thoughtful, funny too. And tall. Charming, a good athlete, just too many good things about him, that's all. And...love sonnets? It's just not my style. I mean, if it were "love jokes," I'd win that one hands down.

ROB: Aw, come on, Buddy. His name is Joe Coogan and you don’t have to just sit there between he and Laura, either. SALLY: Oh, you mean maybe I can, uh, flirt a little bit? ROB: No, a lot. SALLY: Rob, you’ve got a vengeful streak in you I’ve never noticed before. ROB: It’s been in there for years; I just keep it under control, that’s all. SALLY: Well, I don’t know. With all the fish in the ocean, I don’t like to try to hook one that got away from Laura. BUDDY: Well, don’t wait too long. I had an aunt who waited so long for her ship to come in her pier collapsed.

(Lights up on ROB and BUDDY.) ROB: Look, Sal, it isn’t only out of vindictiveness I want you to come. I think you and Joe Coogan might make a nice couple. SALLY: Okay, good. Then I’ll go. ROB: Great! SALLY (to Rob and Buddy): Now, let’s see. What dress shall I wear; shall I wear my velvet sheathe with the slit on the side, or should I wear my lace neck with the low V? BUDDY: Why don’t you wear the top of the one and the bottom of the other? (MEL enters.)

MEL: What's going on here? As the producer of this show, it is my responsibility to see that tonight’s script is in Alan Brady’s hands by six. BUDDY: Great, just in time for us to bounce some ideas off your head. Or just bounce your head. MEL: Ha, ha, very funny. You know, you should write for comedy one day. SALLY: Hey, hey! Let's get to work here. I have an important date tonight. ROB: And I need to get home before Mr. Sonnets-in-ta-Shoebox. BUDDY: And I—I don’t know; I’m so tired I can’t even think of another good baldy joke. MEL: Now, now, we are all staying here till we're done. We must never allow our personal pleasures to interfere with our work. BUDDY: Yeah, that's why I work for you. SALLY: All right, let’s get this done so we can get our own shows on the road.

It’s a lovely house you have. (The Petries' Living Room) LAURA (Nervously chatty): Oh! Thank you, thank you. My husband should be home soon. He writes for television, you know. JOE: No, I didn’t. LAURA: Oh, didn’t he tell you? JOE: Well, you didn’t. I haven’t met him, remember? LAURA: Oh! Well, actually, you have met. JOE: We have? LAURA: Yeah, You see, my husband was the...(Buzz from kitchen.) Oh, it’s the oven. I have some hors d’oeuvres heating. I hope you’re hungry! JOE: I’m hungry enough to eat a shark! LAURA: A shark? JOE: Well, it’s Friday! LAURA: Oh! Well, I hope you like my cooking. JOE: I’m sure I will. LAURA: Well, I certainly hope that you’re sure. (Bumps into door, backing into kitchen. Front door opens. ROB comes in quietly, JOE doesn’t hear him. ROB sneaks right up to him, leans down.) ROB (aggressively): Well, how’s the old duffer today? (JOE turns around.) JOE: Old-d—?? Rob! (As he stands up, his clerical collar comes right to Rob’s eye level. Rob reacts.) ROB: Well, I didn’t mean, I didn’t mean, you were an old duffer, Faffer, Father, Father Duffer, I mean, Father Duffy. (laughs uncomfortably) JOE: You’re a sly rascal, Rob, having your wife invite me to dinner! (ROB laughs uncomfortably. LAURA enters.) Allegretto 1
