(ROADSHOW SCENE NO. 5)
The others hesitate, look to Ski and Perna for any sign
What the hell!
He ain't gonna win anyhow!
That's a deal.
They reach to cover the bets.
I'll bet you ten on the side the
slopehead won't fight.
Frenchy has been watching intently, his anger growing.
Now that the commotion dies down and Ski goes off shadow-
boxing, Frenchy taps Holman sharply on the arm, gestures
for them to go outside. They move toward the door.
143 EXT. DECK - DAY
Frenchy is baffled and angry.
You know what I'm tryna do for Maily.
Holman looks at him, troubled.
They're giving' the coolie a bad shake.
So what? Now you'll be rid of him.
Get your engine back.
It's my fault he was canned.
I don't get it. You lose your money and Ski's gonna
get Maily on account of that slopehead?
Whaddya call her?
You shut up!
For a moment it seems that Frenchy might hit him.
You know, I coulda had some of that dough, too, but
I wouldn't bet against a buddy.
He goes back inside. Holman is deeply troubled.
