(At the Hotel)

 (Miss Pearl has just arrived at the hotel).

 Shirley Pearl

Good morning.

My name's Shirley Pearl.

I believe you have a room for me.

 

Receptionist

Could you spell your name, please?

 

Shirley Pearl

P-E-A-R-L, S-H-I-R-L-E-Y P-E-A-R-L.

 

Receptionist

Just a minute, Miss Pearl.

Yes, that's right. We can offer you a single room from today for 12 days.

 

Shirley Pearl

Is there a shower?

 

Receptionist

There's a private bathroom, a TV set and a fridge.

 

Shirley Pearl

How much is it?

 

Receptionist

90 dollars a night.

 

Shirley Pearl

Oh, it's a reasonable price.

 

Receptionist

Could you fill in this form, please?

Will you sign here, please?

Here's your key.

 

Shirley Pearl

What time's breakfast, by the way?

 

Receptionist

Any time between 7 and 10 downstairs in the restaurant.

There are coffee-stalls and snack bars on every floor of the hotel.

 

Shirley Pearl

Can I have breakfast in my room?

 

Receptionist

No problem.

You can order it by phone.

Lunch is from 11 till 1.30, tea at about 5, and dinner at 6 or 7.

 

Shirley Pearl

Where can I buy stamps and envelopes?

 

Receptionist

The news-stand is right in front of you.

 

Shirley Pearl

Ah, that's fine, thanks.

 

(The film producer comes into the hall.)

 

Wesley West

Ah, there you are at last! Good morning.

 

Shirley Pearl

Good morning.

Glad to see you.

 

Wesley West

How are you?

 

Shirley Pearl

I'm quite well, thanks.

A bit tired after the flight.

And how are things with you?

 

Wesley West

Fine as usual, thank you.

 

Shirley Pearl

Glad to hear it.

How do you like it here?

 

Wesley West

Well, it's very interesting.

 

Shirley Pearl

What about the group?

 

Wesley West

All of them are pleasant people, very sociable.

What's your room number?

 

Shirley Pearl

Er... 1532.

 

Wesley West

What luck!

We are neighbours!

My room's on the same floor.

I'll take you there.

 

Shirley Pearl

What time is it?

 

Wesley West

It's a quarter to 10.

 

Shirley Pearl

Ah, my watch is three hours slow then.

 

Wesley West

No wonder.

London is two hours behind Moscow.

 

(The film producer and the actress are at the door of a room.

The door is open.

They go in.)

 

Shirley Pearl

Listen! There's somebody in the room.

A man is singing.

 

Wesley West

You're right.

He's in the bathroom.

 

(They hear a song:

"What can I do without you? What must I do to start my life anew?")

 

Wesley West

(Knocking.)

Who's there?

What are you doing?

 

Voice (angrily)

Don't disturb me, please. I'm taking a bath.

 

(The man comes out in a dressing gown).

 

What do you want?

Who are you?

 

Wesley West

I'm afraid, there's a mistake.

This room is ours.

 

Man

Yours?

Are you sure?

This is room 1523.

 

Wesley West

(Looking at the number of the key)

Oh, awfully sorry.

It's my fault.

I've made a mistake.

Do forgive me.

 

Man

These things happen.

 

(Some minutes later in room 1532.)

 

Wesley West

Can you come down about three quarters of an hour?

 

Shirley Pearl

Have pity!

Can you give me an hour and a half?

I need time for a shower and a cup of coffee.

 

Wesley West

All right then.

In an hour and a half.

I'll be waiting for you downstairs.

Don't be late.

The bus leaves at 12 sharp.

 

Shirley Pearl

Oh, I'm never late, am I?

 

Wesley West

See you in the lobby of the hotel.

 

(At 10 minutes to 12.)

 

Nora North

The weather's nasty today, isn't it?

 

Steve McQueen

Yes, rather, isn't it?

 

Russell Brundon

What's up?

You look so upset.

 

Bernard Berg

The trouble is I can't stay in my room.

 

Russell Brundon

What's wrong with it?

 

Bernard Berg

Nothing's wrong with the room itself.

The room is large enough.

It faces the yard, so it isn't noisy.

 

Nora North

Is it comfortable?

 

Bernard Berg

It's light, clean, comfortable and even sunny.

I like it very much. But I don't like the man who is next door to me.

 

Russell Brundon

Why! What has he done?

 

Bernard Berg

He hasn't done anything wrong I suppose.

Нe's a musician.

He plays his violin day and night.

 

Nora North

How annoying!

 

Wesley West

He's preparing for the Tchaikovsky Competition, isn't he?

 

Bernard Berg

Probably.

I couldn't sleep last night.

I need a room to work and sleep in, not to listen to music.

Are there any vacant rooms in the hotel?

 

Nora North

I'm afraid not, none at all ...

 

Bernard Berg

What shall I do?

 

Tony Dakota

Don't worry.

I can help you.

Do you smoke?

 

Bernard Berg

No, I don't.

 

Tony Dakota

So much the better.

I have a double room.

We can share it.

 

Russell Brundon

As far as I understand, you need privacy for your work, don't you?

 

Tony Dakota

I'm out all day long.

You can have the room all to yourself.

 

Bernard Berg

You're so considerate!

Thank you very much.

 

Tony Dakota

That's all right!

Don't mention it.

 

(At the reception desk)

 

Tony Dakota

Excuse me, can you spare me a minute?

 

Girl

Certainly.

 

Tony Dakota

What facilities are there in the hotel?

 

Girl

There's a hairdresser's, a currency exchange, a post-office, a dry-cleaner's, a shoe repair shop and a laundry.

All of them are on the ground floor.

 

Tony Dakota

Thank you. By the way, what are you doing tonight?

 

Girl

Pardon?

What did you say?

 

Tony Dakota

I mean why don't we go out together?

 

Girl

I'm sorry, I'm busy.

 

Tony Dakota

What about tomorrow?

 

Girl

I'm busy today.

I was busy yesterday.

I'll be busy tomorrow.

Besides, I don't go out with strangers.

 

Tony Dakota

But everybody knows me here!

Yet I must apologize.

I meant quite well.

 

Voices of the Congress participants

Come on, Tony! We're waiting!

 

Win Lynn

You're not wasting time, are you?

 

Tony Dakota

I can't afford to waste time.

 

Steve McQueen

Ah, look at that!

It's raining.

 

Russell Brundon

You never know where you are with the weather!

 

Win Lynn

Where are our umbrellas?
