WOO: I see you haven't lost your touch Miss Marlin.
FRANKIE: Wrong time no see, Miss Marrin!
MAXIE: I see you're still struggling with that awful R and L substitution, Frankie.
MAXIE: (DOWN) It was that Chinese lizard Sydney Woo Fei Loh and his trusty gecko Frankie Kwai Chee Chak--- both formally of
WOO: No thanks to you. But enough about me...what brings you to the
MAXIE: My passport is not forged has my actual name on it. Do the authorities know you're here?
FRANKIE: Yes, Miss Marrin...this week we have big businessmen flom arr ove
WOO: Shuttup Frankie!
FRANKIE: Solly, Boss.
WOO: Very witty Miss Marlin...Very witty, indeed. But you are no longer in
FRANKIE: Yes, Miss Marrin...Vely Cearfur indeed.
WOO: Mysterious things have a tendency of occurring in the Orient. Unexplained disappearances leaving more questions than answers.
MAXIE: Did I just hear a threat?
WOO: A threat? I was merely suggesting the return of a favor.
MAXIE: What favor?WOO: A favor you owe me. After all you were instrumental in my apprehension and subsequent deportation from the land of the free.
MAXIE: Half the police force in the city of
WOO: I collect when the opportunities avail themselves.
FRANKIE: Rike now!
WOO: Your testimony was very damaging and we do so miss San Fransisco...
FRANKIE: (singing) "I reft my heart in San Flansisco...."
WOO: Shuttup Frankie....Sorry Miss Marlin… it's too much damn kereoke! MAXIE: I'm touched... but you brought that on yourself, Sydney.
MAXIE: I'm touched... but you brought that on yourself, Sydney.
WOO: I beg to differ...
MAXIE: Beg all you want. It doesn't change a thing. I owe you nothing.
WOO: I'm disappointed. The daughter of the reputable Captain John Marlin refuses to honor a favor. It would break his heart to know this...as much as it broke his heart when you left the force for... private practice.
FRANKIE: Shame, shame, shame, Miss Marrin.
WOO: I have always been curious about the circumstances surrounding your untimely … retirement from the San Francisco Police Department.
FRANKIE: Were you a naughty gir, Miss Marrin? Your daddy no rike what you do?
MAXIE: Keep my father out of this!
WOO: But you were the one who brought him up. Despite our differences I respected your father. In fact, it was a favor I owed him that kept you alive to honor the favor you owe me today.
MAXIE: Nice try
WOO: The truth has many sides to it.
MAXIE: I like my side. Yours has too many holes.
WOO: Come now Miss Marlin, we go back a long way. Perhaps you could consider this favor...as a gift. Where is your Christmas spirit?
FRANKIE: (singing) "Deck the harrs wit boughs of horry...."
WOO: Oh, Shuttup! Besides, you’re Buddhist!
MAXIE: Christmas spirit? I’ve checked Santa's list and you've been very naughty. Sorry boys, no gift.
FRANKIE: Oh, too bad!
MAXIE: But, out of curiosity... just how would you suggest I pay back this so called favor?
WOO: You are a beautiful white American woman, Miss Marlin---a valuable commodity in this part of the world. In the spirit of the season...I was only suggesting you spread a little ...goodwill among some gentlemen I know.
MAXIE: Are these the same kind of gentlemen who would spoon the brains out of a live monkey's skull?
WOO: With a splash of brandy, it’s quite a delicacy.
MAXIE: Once a flesh monger...always a flesh monger, huh? I'm flattered
WOO: You may have forgotten, Miss Marlin---the commodity in this case never determines the buying or the selling.
FRANKIE: And you may have folgotten---there's two of us and onry one of you!
WOO: Good point, Frankie.
FRANKIE: Thank you, Boss.WOO: So, lets not make a fuss and come quietly with us.
MAXIE: I would
WOO: W...Whatever are you talking about Miss Marlin?
MAXIE: You know.. that little problem you have.
FRANKIE: Boss, I think she is talking about...
WOO: Shuttup Frankie! Problem? Problem...Miss Marlin? (Beginning to breathe hard.) It’s not a problem---It’s a condition!
MAXIE: You wouldn't want me to aggravate this... condition, would you?
WOO: (Breathing Hard.) You wouldn't Miss Marlin! Not here!
MAXIE: (DOWN) Now old
WOO: NO! NO! NOT THAT! (Beginning to wheeze)
FRANKIE: Crose youl eyes Boss! Miss Marrin! Have you no decency? In bload dayright---in the stleet?
MAXIE: A girl's got to do what a girls got to do. Besides he started it.
FRANKIE: But Miss Marrin....
WOO: No! Please, NO! (Frantic Wheezing.) Don’t tell me anything!
MAXIE: Are you sure,
FRANKIE: No, Miss Marrin, Preese! Boss, quick cover your ears!
WOO: Shuttup Frankie!
FRANKIE: Yes, Boss!
MAXIE: Would you prefer if I show you?
FRANKIE: I beg you Miss Marrin… Preese, No!
(Sydney's wheezing hits a crescendo and deflates with a shudder.)
