Youre Amazing, Tom

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Youre Amazing, Tom ALVIN
You should have told me about that.


THOMAS
Alvin never would have understood.


ALVIN
Yes I would.


THOMAS
I had too much coming at me.


ALVIN
You should have said something.


THOMAS
I couldn't work. I couldn't write. I had to streamline my personal life.


(Alvin selects a story and reads.)

ALVIN
Money and Prizes.
A story about Thomas.


Having streamlined his personal life,
Thomas was able to focus on more important matters.


THOMAS
But as much as I tried to focus, there was always this voice in my head -
Alvin's patient, supportive and aggravating voice.


ALVIN
Another award? You are so talented, Tom.


(Thomas addresses an award ceremony audience.)

THOMAS
Thank you so much for this. I’m flattered but completely at a loss as to why you’ve chosen me.


ALVIN
YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.
AND TO PROVE IT
THEY’RE THROWING THIS BIG FANCY DO
FOR YOU.


YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.
IF I’D KNOWN ABOUT THIS
I’D HAVE BEEN THERE TODAY.
WELL, ANYWAY.


I’M SURE YOU HAVE NO TIME TO CALL.
I KNOW THAT YOUR SCHEDULE’S TIGHT.
YOU’RE PROBABLY NEEDED AT SIGNINGS AND PARTIES.
C’MON, I’M YOUR PAL, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.


THOMAS
I'm frequently asked, "Where do your stories come from?" I don't know.
All I know is there's got to be thousands of stories in this head of mine just waiting for me to pick
one and write it down.


ALVIN
YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.
YOU’RE EVERYTHING I ALWAYS KNEW YOU COULD BE.
TIMES THREE.


THOMAS
But it's lonely work. Just me and the blank page.


ALVIN
YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.
AND TO THINK THAT YOU MADE IT HERE
ALL ON YOUR OWN.
WELL, WHO’D HAVE KNOWN?


YOUR WRITING HAS PASSION AND SKILL
WHILE OTHERS ARE CHURNING OUT FLUFF.
IT’S EASY TO PANDER TO LOW EXPECTATIONS,
BUT QUALITY STORIES ARE TOUGH.


THOMAS
And the indescribable feeling of writing those first few words knowing
I'm on my way to changing people’s lives.


ALVIN
WHAT YOU DO IS IMPORTANT.
WHAT YOU DO IS AN ART.
WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS FEEDING YOUR READERS
IDEAS WITH HEART.


LET’S ADMIT IT, YOU’RE MAKING
THE PLANET A HAPPIER PLACE.
IT’S BECAUSE OF THE MINDS YOU ARE SAVING
THAT SOMEONE IS WAVING
ANOTHER AWARD IN YOUR FACE.


YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.


THOMAS
Every one of my stories - The Butterfly, The Marvelous Mystical Bookstore,
The Memory Robe, even the incredibly popular Mrs. Remington's Hallowe'en -
every one was up here just waiting for me to set it free.


ALVIN
YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM. THE RESULT OF THE CHOICES YOU MADE IS SUCCESS.
I GUESS.


YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.
IT’S HARD WHEN YOU HAVE TO LEAVE
SOME THINGS BEHIND.
WELL NEVER MIND.


SOME PEOPLE MARCH IN PARADES.
WHILE OTHERS JUST WATCH THEM GO BY.


THOMAS
Of course, I can't leave the stage without a few thank-yous.


ALVIN
SO SOAK UP THE PRAISE AND ENJOY THE OVATION.


THOMAS
My publisher.


ALVIN
THOUGH NOBODY SPECIAL WILL SHARE YOUR ELATION.


THOMAS
My agent.


ALVIN
MONEY AND PRIZES ARE FINE CONSOLATION
AND TANGIBLY INDICATE WHY...


THOMAS
And the single most important person in all of this. The one who buys my book.


ALVIN
... YOU’RE AMAZING, TOM.


(Thomas confronts Alvin.)


THOMAS
IT’S ELUSIVE, ALVIN.
IT’S LIKE ANGELS IN THE SNOW.
TURN YOUR BACK AND THERE THEY GO.


(Thomas selects a story.)


THOMAS
Angels in the Snow.
A Work In Progress.
