You'll See [BENNY enters.]

[BENNY]

Joy to the world--
Hey, you bum -- yeah, you, move over
Get your ass off that range rover

[MARK]

That attitude toward the homeless is just what
Maureen is protesting tonight.
[Holding camera up to BENNY]
Close up: Benjamin Coffin the third, our ex-roommate
who married Alison Grey, of the Westport Greys -- then bought
the building and the lot next door from his
father-in-law in hopes of starting a cyber-studio.

[BENNY]

Maureen is protesting
Losing her performance space
Not my attitude

[ROGER]

What happened to Benny
What happened to his heart
And the ideals he once pursued?

[BENNY]

The owner of that lot next door
Has a right to do with it as he pleases

[COLLINS]

Happy birthday, Jesus!

[BENNY]

The rent

[MARK]

You're wasting your time

[ROGER]

We're broke

[MARK]

And you broke your word -- this is absurd

[BENNY]

There is one way you won't have to pay

[ROGER]

I knew it!

[BENNY]

Next door, the home of Cyberarts, you see
And now that the block is re-zoned
Our dream can become a reality
You'll see boys
You'll see boys
A state of the art, digital, virtual interactive studio
I'll forego your rent and on paper guarantee
That you can stay here for free
If you do me one small favor

[MARK]

What?

[BENNY]

Convince Maureen to cancel her protest

[MARK]

Why not just get an injunction or call the cops

[BENNY]

I did, and they're on stand by
But my investors would rather
I handle this quietly

[ROGER]

You can't quietly wipe out an entire tent city
Then watch 'It's a Wonderful Life' on TV!

[BENNY]

You want to produce films and write songs?
You need somewhere to do it!
It's what we used to dream about
Think twice before you pooh-pooh it
You'll see boys
You'll see boys
You'll see -- the beauty of a studio
That lets us do our work and get paid
With condos on the top
Whose rent keeps open our shop
Just stop the protest
And you'll have it made
You'll see -- or you'll pack

[BENNY exits.]

[ANGEL]

That boy could use some prozac

[ROGER]

Or heavy drugs

[MARK]

Or group hugs

[COLLINS]

Which reminds me --
We have a detour to make tonight
Anyone who wants to can come along

[ANGEL]

Life support's a group for people coping with life
You don't have to stay too long

[MARK]

First I've got a protest to save

[ANGEL]

Roger?

[ROGER]

I'm not much company you'll find

[MARK]

Behave!

[ANGEL]

He'll catch up later -- He's just go other things on his mind
You'll see boys

[MARK AND COLLINS]

We'll see boys

[ROGER]

Let it be boys!

[COLLINS]

I like boys

[ANGEL]

Boys like me

[ALL]

We'll see.
