Bette: I'd like to say that you're in my dreams. James: You're the one who made my dreams come true Bette: You're usually dead, James: a few Bette: without a head, James: kisses ago. Bette: and lots of natives are picking their teeth with your bones. James: I remember, too, Bette: Oh, what a dream! James: a distant bell, Bette: It comes at night and taunts me, James: and stars that fell Bette: and, like your jokes, it haunts me until James: like rain out of the blue. Bette: I'm blue as your face as the last breath leaves you. James: When my life is through, Bette: I'll jump for joy. James: and the angels ask me to recall Bette: and when Winchell asks me to recall who's a chump and a heel. James: the thrill of it all, Bette: Who's the biggest schlemeil? Both: Then I will tell them I remember . . . James: 'So, uh, it's my birthday comin' up.' Bette: 'Yeah, I know, Eddie.' James: 'But, what do you give a guy that's got everything?' Bette: 'Uh, penicillin?' James: 'Hmmm, hey Dix? You ever been married?' Bette: 'Oh, yeah, Eddie, twice!' James: 'Children?' Bette: 'No, silly! Grown men! Tell me, Eddie, what's the most romantic thing a woman ever said to you?' James: 'Are you sure you're not a cop?' Then I will tell them I remember . . . you. Bette: You James: and you.
