“Yes, do that,” says Fred to Millie. He dramatically shakes Peggy’s hand. “And goodnight to you, Peggy. It has certainly been — a pleasure.”
“Yes, Fred,” laughs Peggy. “See you soon!”
“By all means,” says Fred, suddenly banging his head on the roof of the car. Millie winces. “Beg your pardon,” says Fred, rubbing his head. “Good night.”
Fred puts on his cap and heads for the Grandview Arms apartments.
“We’d better wait until he gets in,” says Millie to Peggy. They watch from the car.
Fred tries the front door of the apartment house, but it’s locked. He walks over to the apartment door buzzers to find Marie’s apartment.
“I don’t even think he knows if this is the right place!” says Peggy.
Fred looks at the row of buzzers and presses one, then leans against the wall. He slumps, and slides to the sidewalk, asleep. With his eyes closed, he keeps pressing on the wall, imagining he’s still pressing the buzzer.
Peggy and Millie get out of the car and help Fred back to his feet.
