Let's fly to Paris
Don't be embarrassed
I'll marry you there.
No one so fair as
You darling mon cher
Let's fly to Paris
Let's be a pair

GK: I am a very nearsighted person and I wear thick glasses that make my eyes look like a giant insect's which was a problem when I was 17 ------

SS (TEEN): You want to what? Go out with me? ARE YOU SERIOUS? Think what that would do to my reputation. Me---- going out with Bug Eyes. Ha. So long. (RUNNING FEET, AWAY)

GK: Fortunately I found a woman who was blind.

AS: Hi. You're tall, aren't you? I can tell by your voice. And this is my dog, Challenger. (PANTING) Do you mind if he sniffs you? (SNIFFING) Are you handsome?


AS: Sit, Challenger.

GK: People say I'm good-looking. (GROWL)
Some people do.

AS: Challenger, what's wrong?

GK: Does your dog have a problem with his vision?

AS: Read the eye chart, Challenger.

TK (DOG): Bn Cn Xn Kn Wn Mn D On Vn ----

GK: Amazing. (STING, BRIDGE) We dated for awhile and we earned good money singing on the street (TRAFFIC PASSING) ----


When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, oh Glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die Hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away.


GK: People pity a guy with thick glasses but when I take the glasses off the world becomes soft and romantic like a Renoir painting. Here's the world with my glasses.


GK: And here's without:


GK: Here's with glasses.

SS: Your report was due yesterday. Where is it?

GK: And this is without glasses.

SS: (HUSKY): Touch me, hold me, my body aches for you, take me in your arms, love me.

GK: The world with my glasses-----

TR (SCROOGE): You're late again, Mr. Cratchit! Christmas Day is no excuse to pick a man's pocket. And you know what I'm going to do about it?

GK: World without glasses-----

TR (SCROOGE): I'm going to give you a big raise, Mr. Cratchit. And Tiny Tim is going to walk again and the economy is on the rebound. Yes sir!!!n

GK: A person needs to have these two sensibilities, you need to be able to take your glasses off----

TR: I CELEBRATE myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

GK: And sometimes you need to put your glasses back on--

TR: What am I talking about? That's crazy.(BRIDGE)

GK: Two sensibilities at one time ----- wild hope and stark realism. I'm a romantic at heart and she was a realist----

AS: (SOFTLY): What are you thinking?

GK: Me? I'm thinking you're the love of my life and I want to fly to Paris with you and be wildly happy, living on the streets and singing our songs.

AS: Oh.

GK: What are you thinking?

AS: I'm thinking that I can't fly to Paris because I'm supposed to be in my friend Jessica's wedding in April

GK: Tell her you can't. You're in love.

AS: I told her I would.

GK: How well do you know Jessica?

AS: I never met her but she's my aunt Emma's cousin's daughter.

GK: And you won't fly to Paris because you're going to be in her wedding?? Babes----

AS: A promise is a promise. (STING, BRIDGE)

GK: Louisa broke up with me and started dating Lenny, the Greek god, but she and I still sang duets on the street because it was good money.

I'll fly away, oh Glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die Hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away.

GK: We keep singing "I'll fly away" but we never do it. Why not? Let's go.

AS: I can't I've got to feed my cat.

Let's fly to Paris
What can compare
Don't be embarrassed
I'll marry you there.

AS:n I have a dental appointment on Wednesday.

GK: Let's fly to Paris
And have an affair
Let's ride that ferris
Wheel high in the air

AS: I told my mother I'd come help her clean her basement.

GK: Let's fly to Paris
Or maybe Lyon
I don't care as
Long as I'm not alone.

You darling mon cher
Let's fly to Paris
Let's be a pair
