Maureen
I think we need an agent!

Mark
We?

Joanne
That's selling out

Mark
But it's nice to dream

Maureen
Yeah - it's network TV
And it's all thanks to me

Mark
Somehow I think I smell
The whiff of a scheme

Joanne
Me too

Maureen
We can plan another protest

Joanne
We?!

Maureen
This time you can shoot from the start
You'll direct
Starring me!

All
5, 4, 3... Open Sesame!!
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
Happy New...

Benny
I see that you've beaten me to the punch

Roger
How did you know we'd be here?

Benny
I had a hunch

Mark
You're not mad?

Benny
I'm here to end this war
It's a shame you went and destroyed the door

Mimi
Why all the sudden the big about face

Benny
The credit is yours
You made a good case

Roger
What case?

Benny
Mimi came to see me
And she had much to say

Mimi
That's not how you put it at all yesterday

Benny
I couldn't stop thinking about the whole mess
Mark - you'll want to get this on film

Mark
I guess

Benny
I regret the unlucky circumstances of the past seven days

Roger
Circumstance?
You padlocked our door

Benny
And it's with great pleasure on behalf of Cyberarts that I hand you this key

Angel
Golf claps

Mark
I have no juice in my battery

Benny
Reshoot

Roger
I see - this is a photo opportunity

Maureen
The benevolent god
Ushers the poor artists back to their flat
Were you planning on taking down the barbed wire from the lot, too?

Roger
Anything but that!

Benny
Clearing the lot was a safety concern
We break ground this month
But you can return

Maureen
That's why you're here with people you hate
Instead of with Muffy at Muffy's estate

Benny
I'd honestly rather be with you tonight
Than in Westport--

Roger
Spare us old sport, the soundbite

Benny
Mimi - since your ways are so seductive

Mimi
You came on to me!

Benny
Persuade him not to be so
Counterproductive

Roger
Liar!

Benny
Why not tell them what you wore to my
place?

Mimi
I was on my way to work

Benny
Black leather and lace!
My desk was a mess
I think I'm still sore

Mimi
Cause I kicked him and told him I wasn't his whore!

Benny
Does your boyfriend know who your last boyfriend was?

Roger
I'm not her boyfriend
I don't care what she does

Angel
People! Is this any way to start a
New Year?
Have compassion
Benny just lost his cat

Benny
My dog - but I appreciate that

Angel
My cat had a fall
And I went through hell

Benny
It's like losing a -
How did you know that she fell?

Collins
Champagne?

Benny
Don't mind if I do
To dogs

All but Benny
No Benny - to you!

Angel
Let's make a resolution

Mimi
I'll drink to that

Collins
Let's always stay friends

Joanne
Though we may have our disputes

Maureen
This family tree's got deep roots

Mark
Friendship is thicker than blood

Roger
That depends

Mimi
Depends on trust

Roger
Depends on true devotion

Joanne
Depends on love

Mark
Depends on not denying emotion

Roger
Perhaps

All
It's gonna be a happy New Year

Roger
I guess

All
It's gonna be a happy New Year

Roger
You're right

Angel
It's gonna be a happy New Year

Roger and Mimi
I'm sorry

Roger
Coming?

Mimi
In a minute - I'm fine - go

The Man
Well, well, well. What have we here?
It's gonna be a happy New Year
There, there..

    how can this be?
    it's so emotional and wonderful.
    my favorites are
    'depends on trust, depends on true devotion, depends on not denying emoton!'
    and
    'though we may have our disputes, this family tree's got deep roots. friendship is thicker than blood.'

    jon larson was the most amazing human being ever to walk the earth.
    no joke.

    General Commentone of my favourite parts is "Mimi since you're ways are so seductive, persuade him not to be so counterproductive"
    I hate Benny, but I love Taye Diggs!
