“Yes,” says Al. He whistles again for the waiter, Angus, who returns to the booth.
Angus makes a circling motion with his hand, indicating another round of drinks.
Al stands up and says, “I’d love to!” and begins dancing with Angus.
The others in the booth laugh.
Later, Butch is closing up the bar. “Lights out, Steve!” says Butch, helping Al to the door.
Al sees Fred and cheers. “Where do we go next, old pal, old pal?” says Al.
“Just follow me, old pal,” says Millie. Millie throws Al’s arm over her shoulder. Butch holds the front door of the bar open.
“Step,” warns Millie, as Al approaches the front door.
“Goodnight, Al,” says Butch.
“Goodnight, Butch!” replies Al. “We had a nice party!”
Later, at the Grandview Arms, Peggy pulls up to the entrance.
“Is this it, Fred?” asks Peggy.
“It looks like it!” smiles a very drunk Fred. He climbs out of the car, bumping his head on the door frame. He takes Millie’s hand. “Goodnight, Millie,” says Fred, very formally. “Many thanks for a most enjoyable evening.”
“Goodnight, Fred, ” says Millie.
“Goodnight, Al! Best of luck to you,” says Fred. Al is passed out, leaning up against Millie.
“I’ll give him your message,” says Millie.
