A Full Length Musical Comedy by William Armstrong

Scene Five
Glama coach at hotel,
Friday morning.
Lights up as Jeff enters and talks to Angel.
Are you ready for another filed rye-day -- uh, wild Friday, catching up on the things we missed during the week?
It is going to be wilder that you think, my friend. I've decided. I'm going to propose to Anita.
¡Magnífico! You won't regret it, amigo.
Marcy slips into the scene and points camcorder at Jeff. Lights change accordingly.
Obviously, I'll need the ring to make this work. There's a dealer I can trust downtown. He knows I'm coming, so the deal shouldn't take long.
Jeff exits. Marcy stops taping. Lights change accordingly. Angel greets Herb and Claire as they enter to board the bus.
Love is in the air. It smells like smog, but it's love.
Angel dances up to his driver's seat and sits, smiling. Claire rubs Herb's neck.
Wow, you're muscles are tight. Did you have cable installed?
It feels like you have a steel cable in your back. Is my Herbie Bear tense today? Are you anxious because we haven't decided where we're going on our next vacation?
I'm willing to go to Florida, if that's where you want to live.
Uh oh. Are we talking marriage again?
I love going on vacation with you, Claire, but we're running out of places to go. Why don't we just get married and stay home for once?
So you want to go to Niagara Falls?
Music comes up for "Been There, Done That".
Been there, done that. Seen everything there is to see.
They can keep all of that if you'll be mine,
'Cuz you mean the world to me.
I tackled Niag'ra in a barrel,
Autographed China's famous wall,
Spit gum out on the streets of Singapore,
But you're the greatest thrill of them all!

Been there, seen that. Done everything there is to do.
Yes, I've planted one on that Blarney Stone,
But I'd rather kiss with you.
I've run with the bulls out in Pamplona,
Surfed at Oahu's northern shore,
Ate kosher in the heart of Arab lands,
But you're the thrill that I'm hoping for

Seen this, done that. Been everywhere there is to be.
Be the love of my life from here on out,
'Cuz you mean the world, a wonderful world, you mean the world to me.
All right. I don't know how those kids of mine will take the news, but let's get married. Where do you want to go on our honeymoon?
The captain of a ship can perform a wedding service. I wonder if Angel can marry us.
Now, Herbie, there are a million details to work out. Don't get carried away.
I have engaged the enemy. Now all we have to do is set the wedding date.
Lights fade out.
