               Glamour stills of various girls being engulfed in flames.  

               As one burns away, another appears.  Until we see Janine's 

               glamour shot.



               The SWISH of a breeze, the flames blow out.

               shoulder no one is there.  Janine, naked from her strip tease, 

               comes backstage.

               Carol switches TV back to Janine's movie and slips a hand 

               down a surprised KEVIN'S pajama bottoms. 



               INTERCUT BETWEEN JANINE'S BEDROOM AND COUPLE'S BEDROOM



               JANINE'S ear.  



               CUTAWAY: Someone	blaring a car HORN



               JANINE wincing.



               CUTAWAY: TRAFFIC zooming by



               Janine gets up and SLAMS the window shut, returns to bed, 

               she is annoyed by the acutely LOUD MOANS AND GROANS emanating 

               from next door.  The sounds keep getting louder.  



               The noise RATTLES the pictures on the wall. 



               The TV VOLUME swells to the point where Janine lowers it.  

               The sound continues to rise, she finally mutes it, but the 

               sound is still increasing.  As the couple build to a climax 

               the volume of their MOANS and GROANS, and extraneous STREET 

               NOISES build to an unbearable crescendo.  JANINE presses her 

               hands to her ears to try and block out the noise which is so 

               loud its painful.  Suddenly....



               THE SOUND OF SILENCE



               Janine withdraws her hands only to find blood on them.  She 

               puts her ear to the wall...nothing.  Turns up the TV...hears 

               nothing.  Opens the window.... slowly FADE IN NORMAL STREET 

               NOISE AND TV AUDIO. She picks up the phone



                                     JANINE

                         Hello....Front desk?

                              (checking her ear for 

                              continued bleeding)

                         Can you recommend a doctor?



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                         4.





                                     FRONT DESK (PHONE FILTERED)

                         We always recommend Doc Johnson, his 

                         number is 555-1234.



                                     JANINE

                         By the way, the people in the room 

                         next to me were making a horrible 

                         racket.



                                     FRONT DESK (PHONE FILTERED)

                         There's no one next to you, Ma'am.  

                         There's only one couple and they're 

                         at the other end of the hall.



               Janine is quizzical, hangs up, dials up the Doctor and checks 

               her ear which is still bleeding.



                                     JANINE

                         Hi....I need to see the doctor....as 

                         soon as possible.



           7   INT.  DOCTOR'S OFFICE -- DAY                                 7   



               A NURSE escorts JANINE into examination room.



                                     NURSE

                         The Doctor will be with you in a 

                         moment.



               The Nurse leaves, Janine looks around the room, plays with 

               the paraphernalia.  DOCTOR JOHNSON enters, he's a hunk and 

               he likes what he sees.  He reads her file.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Lets see what the problem is.



               The Doc checks her ears, eyes, throat, listens to her heart.  

               Janine is more than enjoying the examination, as is the 

               Doctor.



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         There doesn't appear to be anything 

                         wrong.  You are an extremely healthy 

                         young woman... 

                              (he says with a twinkle 

                              in his eye)

                         ...Have you ever had episodes of 

                         hyper-sensitive hearing before? 



                                     JANINE

                         Never.



               The Doctor grabs his prescription pad



                                     DOCTOR

                         Stay away from loud noises and if 

                         you have a reoccurrence, call me

                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         immediately.  I'm going to give you 

                         something to help you sleep.



           8   INT. JANINE'S HOTEL ROOM -- NIGHT                            8   



               JANINE, dressed in her most comfortable PJ's, swallows a              

               sedative and climbs into bed.  She picks up the phone.



                                     JANINE

                         Hello?  I need a wake-up call at 

                         nine AM, please

                              (phone filtered)

                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Sweet dreams.



               Her hair blows as if someone is whispering behind her.  She 

               turns, fearful to see someone and is relieved there is no 

               one there.  She hangs up the phone and snuggles with her 

               pillow.



           9   INT.  CHEESY PORNO SET                                       9

                         It's a hundred extra for an anal.



               WIDEN



               A GIRL dressed in sexy lingerie is snuggled against a NAKED 

               GUY.  JANINE is holding a digital camera.



                                     JANINE

                         Definitely.  Now lets get started



               Janine puts the camera to her eye and begins to shoot and 

               direct the couple coupling. 



               The room has a window, with a cheesy plant and fake brick 

               wall behind it. 



               INTERCUT BETWEEN FILM AND JANINE'S VIDEO



               Janine moves in for a close-up of them kissing.



                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Closer



               Her hair blows, she swats it away.

               The brick wall behind the couple dissolves into a scene from 

               one of Janine's porno's.



               Janine pulls the camera away from her eye startled.



               HER POV - The couple is screwing in the foreground, behind 

               them the wall looks normal.



               Janine continues filming them.  As the couple builds towards 

               a climax, the harsh voice-over continues to whisper 

               directions.  Eventually all the walls of the room dissolve 

               into pornos.  She sees that the images are now surrounding 

               her.  The images flare white hot, blotting out the frame 

               with white light.

               JANINE bolts up, screaming in pain and covering her eyes 

               with her hands.  She gropes for the phone, unable to see, 

               feels for the nine button.

               trickle of blood dripping from the corners of Janine's eyes.  

               She's horrified.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         Oh my God!



               She examines herself in the mirror, wiping away blood.  Jill 

               comforts her.

                                                                         7.





                                     JILL

                         It's probably just a reaction to the 

                         sleeping pills that Doctor gave you.



               Janine holds a bloody tissue out to Jill. 



                                     JANINE

                         And this?



                                     JILL

                         Hell, I don't know....Look hon, do 

                         you want me to stay with you for the 

                         rest of the night?



                                     JANINE

                         Would you?



                                     JILL

                         Sure baby, lets get you cleaned up.



               Jill finishes cleaning Janine up and helps her into bed.  

               They fall asleep curled up next to each other.  Their hair 

               blows in a gentle breeze.



                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Sweet Dreams



          11   INT.  HELL (DUNGEON) -- NIGHT                               11   



               JILL'S manicured finger slowly traces up JANINE'S leg, 

               abdomen, etc.



               DIFFERENT DRUM BEATS ACCOMPANY EACH TOUCH 



               Janine is bound between two pillars.  The expression on her 

               face shows pleasure.  JILL applies various tools and 

               implements to Janine's body, wax dripping, water dripping, 

               flogger braids on skin, emery boards, etc...



               DRUM BEATS BECOME A RHYTHM SECTION 



               Occasionally Jill's hair blows and the voice whispers 

               suggestions.  As Janine's sexual excitement builds towards a 

               climax, the increasing tactile sensations become overwhelming.  

               Her sense of touch has become so sensitive that wherever 

               Jill's fingers touch her, a trail of flames appears.  

               Thus...this scene becomes so hot, that it's hard to tell if 

               Janine is screaming in pleasure or pain.  End on an optical 

               of flames engulfing Janine entirely.  Flames WIPE the screen.



          12   INT. JANINE'S HOTEL ROOM -- MORNING                         12   



               JANINE is asleep, her hair blows.



                                     JILL

                              (O.S. whispering)

                         Jaaaniinee...



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                         8.





               Janine's hair blows again, JILL rises up from behind, blowing 

               in her ear.  Janine opens her eyes and playfully swats at 

               her.  JANINE sits up.



                                     JANINE

                         I had the weirdest dream.



                                     JILL

                         Me too!



               Janine stands up.



                                     JANINE

                         Really?



               Jill's eyes widen in horror as she stares at Janine's butt.



                                     JILL

                         Oh my Gawd!



                                     JANINE

                         What?



               Jill reaches up and examines Janine's butt.



                                     JILL

                         This doesn't hurt?



               Janine swats Jill's hand away.



                                     JANINE

                         Stop it!  You're freaking me out.



                                     JILL

                         I think you better go look at your 

                         butt in the mirror, hon.



               NEW ANGLE - MIRROR



               Janine twists around to look at her butt.  She's horrified 

               to see a pentagram burned into her left cheek.  She gingerly 

               touches the mark.



                                     JANINE

                         That's weird, I don't feel anything.



                                     JILL

                              (pointing at Janine's 

                              butt)

                         That's not from the sedative.



                                     JANINE

                         What the fuck is going on?



                                     JILL

                         What did you dream?



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                         9.





          13   INT. DOCTOR'S OFFICE -- DAY                                 13   



                                     JANINE

                         ...It was like her touch was a real 

                         flame.  Every nerve in my body was 

                         hyper sensitive.



               DOCTOR JOHNSON is listening.  Janine stands up, reveals her 

               butt.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         ...and now I have this Jewish Star 

                         burned into my butt.



               The Doctor coughs and suppresses smile.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Nooo.....that's a pentagram.  You 

                         know, the sign of the devil.



                                     JANINE

                         The devil? 



               The Doctor leans in for a closer look, touching the mark.



                                     DOCTOR

                         I've heard of this, but this is the 

                         first case I've ever seen.  The 

                         Italians have a word for it... 

                         stigmata.  Put this on...



               Doctor gets up and hands Janine a patient gown.  



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         ...the nurse will be right in to 

                         administer some tests.  We'll talk 

                         again when she's done.



               He exits.  Janine dons gown and idly plays with medical 

               paraphernalia in the room.  



               OUTSIDE THE DOOR



               The NURSE pauses, her hair blows.



                                     VOICE OVER

                              (Harsh whisper)

                         Perfume



               The Nurse takes a small vial of perfume out of her pocket 

               and dabs behind her ears and her cleavage.  She enters the 

               examining room and approaches Janine.



                                     NURSE

                         Hi, I'm Nurse Evans.  The first thing 

                         I'm going to do is take your pulse.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        10.





               While taking her pulse, a wisp of red smoke drifts from her 

               cleavage and tickles Janine's nose.  Janine is surprised by 

               the strength of the fragrance and begins to sniff the air in 

               earnest.  The nurse then dips a thermometer in alcohol.



                                     NURSE (CONT'D)

                         Hold this under your tongue.



               She puts it under Janine's tongue.  A wisp of blue smoke 

               curls from the thermometer to Janine's nose.



                                     JANINE

                         Do you smell that?



               Nurse, self consciously rubs her neck where she dabbed the 

               perfume.



                                     NURSE

                         Don't talk.



               The nurse continues her exam, eyes, ears, blood pressure.  

               She removes the thermometer and then leans close to Janine 

               to listen to her heart with a stethoscope.  Janine breaths 

               deep as a cloud of blue smoke rise up from the nurses cleavage 

               and engulfs her head.  The nurses hair blows



                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Exhale



               The nurse sighs.  Magenta smoke gushes out of her mouth and 

               envelops both of them.  Janine breaths deep.  Their eyes 

               meet.  As they make love, wisps of different colored smoke 

               come from every lick, kiss and sniff, until the room is filled 

               in a rainbow of colored smoke. 



               Janine lies there sighing and breathing in the smells, as 

               the nurse gets dressed.  The nurse's hair blows.



                                     VOICE OVER (CONT'D)

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Forget.



               The rainbow of smoke dissipates and clears.  The nurse picks 

               up her notes, pauses at the door.



                                     NURSE

                         You can get dressed now, Janine.  

                         The doctor will be here in a minute.



               Nurse exits.  Janine dresses as if in a trance.  She snaps 

               out of at a KNOCK on the door.



                                     DOCTOR

                              (O.S.)

                         Decent?



               She hurriedly finishes dressing.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        11.





                                     JANINE

                         Yes.  Get in here, quick.



               Doctor enters, Janine is bubbling with excitement.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         The most amazing thing happened.  

                         Every smell had a different color.  

                         The room was filled with smells, but 

                         I could see them.  Blues and reds 

                         and greens, swirling around while 

                         the nurse and I were getting it on.  

                         I could smell her whole personality.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Wait a minute....



                                     JANINE

                         Every smell had a different shade.  

                         Every aroma, every nuance of her 

                         being was represented by a smell and 

                         a color.  It was amazing!



                                     DOCTOR

                         Ok.....so you could smell my nurse?



                                     JANINE

                         Yeah, especially when I was giving 

                         her head.  It was like the sweetest 

                         bouquet imaginable.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Nurse Evans?......NURSE!



               Nurse Evans scurries in



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         What just happened here?



                                     NURSE

                         What do you mean?  I just finished 

                         with her tests, you have the results 

                         right there.



                                     JANINE

                         I already told him what we did.



                                     NURSE

                         What did we do?



                                     JANINE

                         We just had the most incredible sex.



                                     NURSE

                         I just ran the tests, Doctor.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        12.





                                     JANINE

                         Tell him the truth.  You're not going 

                         to lose your job over this.  I've 

                         made love to a thousand women and no 

                         one's ever lost their job over it.  

                         Just tell him what we did!



               The Doctor and Janine stare at the nurse who just shakes her 

               head no.  Janine gets all in the nurses face.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?...

                              (cont. ad lib)



               The Doctor gets between them and pulls them apart.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Nurse, will you wait outside?



               The nurse scurries out the door, relieved.



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         Calm down now...look I'm going to 

                         give you another sedative and I think 

                         you should get some rest.



                                     JANINE

                         NO!  I don't want a sedative and I 

                         don't need to rest.  I need answers!



                                     DOCTOR

                         Janine, I don't have the answers 

                         right now.  You really should go 

                         home and rest.



                                     JANINE

                         I'm staying at a hotel and I don't 

                         want to be alone!



               Janine clings to the doctorand pleads.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         Please don't leave me alone.



               Doctor looks at his watch.



                                     DOCTOR

                         When was the last time you ate?



          14   INT.  UPSCALE LIVING ROOM -- LATER                          14   



               On the television, stock footage of the New Year's Eve Ball 

               suspended over Times Square celebration.  



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        13.





                                     TV NEWSCASTER

                              (V.O.)

                         Police say that by the time the ball 

                         drops, over a million people will 

                         pack Times Square...



               We see the NUTBAG on TV with a sign that says, "The Devil is 

               Coming".



                                     TV NEWSCASTER (CONT'D)

                         ...The turn New Year has brought 

                         every fanatic and crack pot to Times 

                         Square.  



               JANINE is staring at the television.  The DOCTOR walks in 

               carrying a tray of wine and cheese, sets it down.



                                     DOCTOR

                         I ordered Thai, but I thought we 

                         could use a little appetizer.



                                     JANINE

                         Thanks.



               She grabs a piece of cheese.  She puts the cheese in her 

               mouth and touches it to her tongue.



               FANFARE REPRESENTING TASTE



               She chews, savoring it



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         Wow...this is great cheese.  What 

                         kind is it?



               He hands her a glass of wine.  JANINE eats and drinks.  Each 

               time she tastes something the FANFARE gets louder as her 

               enjoyment of the food increases.  She gets up and heads for 

               the fridge to forage.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         Doc, this is really nice of you to 

                         let me stay with you, this being New 

                         Year's Eve and all.  Hey!  You wanna 

                         be my date?  I'm going to this 

                         fabulous New's Year's Eve party.  

                         Everyone who's anyone is going to be 

                         there...

                              (cont. ad lib)



               Janine is practically shoveling food in her mouth, whipped 

               cream, cottage cheese, bologna.  



               THE FANFARE IS NOW AN ORCHESTRA.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         ...is that Thai food here yet?



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        14.





               The Doctor walks toward her with a look of concern on his 

               face.



                                     DOCTOR

                         It's on its way.



               DOORBELL RINGS



               Janine perks up.



                                     JANINE

                         It's here!



               She grabs the Doctor's arm and rushes with him to the front 

               door.



               FRONT DOOR



               The Doctor opens the door revealing a cute little ORIENTAL -

               DELIVERY GIRL, holding several bags of Thai food.  Janine 

               grabs the bags, yanking the girl in too.



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         It's about time, what took you so 

                         long?



               While Janine rips open the bags and spreads the food out on 

               the table, the Doctor pays the delivery girl.



               A puff of air blows the delivery girl's hair.



                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Feed her.



               Delivery girl walks to the table, dips an egg roll in the 

               mustard sauce and holds it out for Janine to bite.



                                     DELIVERY GIRL

                         You try special sauce.  Veddy good.



               Janine goes to take a bite and ends up licking the girls 

               fingers.



                                     DELIVERY GIRL (CONT'D)

                         You like?



               The Doctor watches, fascinated, as the girls start swapping 

               food and end up swapping bodily fluids.  This brief lesbian 

               scene should focus on their tongues.  Once they start to 

               disrobe, he becomes concerned and interrupts.



                                     DOCTOR

                         What's going on here?



               Another breeze blows the delivery girl's hair.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        15.





                                     VOICE OVER

                              (harsh whisper)

                         Feed him.



               The Delivery girl walks seductively over to the Doctor and 

               straddles him, silencing him with a breast.  Janine is too 

               busy eating to notice.  The doctor and delivery girl screw 

               and Janine can't resist feeding them and decorating them 

               with food as they move from position to position. 



               THE ORCHESTRA IS NOW A SYMPHONY as it builds to a crescendo.  

               A breeze blows the DOCTOR's hair.



                                     WOMAN'S VOICE OVER

                              (soft whisper)

                         Protect her.



               He's in the thralls of a religious experience.  God has just 

               talked to him.  Janine gags, as the food in her mouth becomes 

               bitter and looks around at the carnage.  The Doctor and the 

               delivery girl are naked and covered in food.  He has a stupid 

               grin on his face.  The delivery girl begins to realize what 

               she's done.



                                     JANINE

                         Hey!  What the fuck are you doing?



                                     DOCTOR

                         What?



               The Delivery Girl jumps up mortified.  She quickly wipes 

               herself off and gets dressed.



                                     DELIVERY GIRL

                         You people sick!  You no tell my 

                         boss.  I go now.  I no tell nobody.  

                         You no tell no body.



               She mumbles in Chinese as she runs out. 



                                     DELIVERY GIRL (CONT'D)

                         No tip.... I no want no tip.



               Janine glares at the Doctor.  In a huff she starts cleaning 

               herself up and getting dressed.



                                     DOCTOR

                         What's the matter?



                                     JANINE

                         I'm outta here.  Fuck this.



                                     DOCTOR

                         You can't go.



               Janine stops turns and gets in his face.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        16.





                                     JANINE

                         I thought we had something here.  

                         And what do you do?  Screw the first 

                         thing that walks through door.  

                         Typical male asshole.  Fuck you.



               Janine pulls on her clothes and heads for the door.  The Doc 

               chases after her.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Wait, don't you know what's going on 

                         here.  That wasn't me.  You can't 

                         leave.



               She slams the door in his face.  Half dressed, he chases 

               after her, whipped cream still in his hair.



          15   INT. NIGHTCLUB -- EVENING                                     15   



               The shiny brass horn of a saxophone



               BIG BAND SWING MUSIC



               NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTYERS dancing to the music, framed by the 

               SAX PLAYER on one side and the CLARINET PLAYER on the other.



               BIG BAND SWING segues to a SLOW SONG



               The partyers drift off the dance floor, leaving just JANINE, 

               swaying to the music.  She's dressed to kill.  DOC JOHNSON, 

               dressed to the nines, walks up to Janine.  He talks to her 

               but she appears to be ignoring him.



                                     DOCTOR

                              (whispers)

                         Janine....Janine.....come on.



                                     JANINE

                         Don't yell!



                                     DOCTOR

                         Janine, I'm whispering.



               She turns to face him surprised, touches his mouth.  He 

               whispers.



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         Come on, lets get off the floor.



               He takes her hand.



               DRUMS 



               She pulls away.



                                     JANINE

                         Wow....your touch....do it again.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        17.





               He takes her hand again and she trembles at the intense 

               feeling.  



                                     JANINE (CONT'D)

                         Hold me...your touch feels so good.



               He takes her in his arms and they dance. 



                                     DOCTOR

                         Don't you see what's happening, 

                         Janine.  It's your senses.  Your 

                         hearing is more acute, you're hyper-

                         sensitive to touch.



               The band changes back to a SWING SONG, distracting Janine.  

               She turns to listen to the music.



                                     JANINE

                         It's like each note vibrates in my 

                         body.  Can't you hear that?



               He pulls her back to him.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Janine!  Listen to me.  It's the New 

                         Year, you have to be with me.



                                     JANINE

                         Stop yelling at me...Be with you?  

                         Wasn't that little delivery girl 

                         enough?



               She turns and grabs the first available man and starts dancing 

               with him.  As a waiter with a tray of hors d'oeuvres walks past, the 

               Doctor grabs a handful of food and waves it under Janine's 

               nose.  Her eyes light up.



               FANFARE AND A WISP OF RED SMOKE drifts from the food to her 

               nose. 



                                     DOCTOR

                         Wait till you taste this.



               He walks off, leading her with the hors d'oeuvre.



               They sit at a table.  He feeds her.  With the first bite 

               Janine almost swoons.



               FANFARE



                                     JANINE

                         That's sooo good.



                                     DOCTOR

                         It's almost midnight Janine.  Don't 

                         you realize what's happening?



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        18.





                                     JANINE

                         Can I have another one of those weenie 

                         things?



               He feeds it to her.  RED SMOKE AND TASTE FANFARE.  She licks 

               his fingers moaning with delight.  Doc pulls his hand away.



                                     DOCTOR

                         It's the devil, Janine.  He's 

                         heightening all your senses.



                                     JANINE

                         Are you outta your mind?



                                     DOCTOR

                         Think about it Janine, the New Year 

                         is coming, 2012.  The Aztec's, the 

                         Miyan's, the Jew's all predict the 

                         end of the world in 2012 .  He's 

                         gonna want a bride!  This thing with 

                         the senses.... it's foreplay.  The 

                         Devil's foreplay.  Can't you see it?



               She looks around.  



               The party is in full swing, the background dissolves into 

               images from the last five sex scenes.



                                     JANINE

                         I can see it!  I can see it all!



               Doc grabs her.



                                     DOCTOR

                         Janine, you have to kiss me.  If 

                         you're with me, the devil can't get 

                         you.



                                     JANINE

                         Yeah right...what a great line Doc. 



               Behind them an EMCEE in a tux rolls out a TV set.



                                     EMCEE

                         Everyone.  It's time.  The New Year 

                         is coming.



               On the TV is a picture of the Times Square Ball, suspended 

               and ready to drop.  Emcee looks at his watch.



                                     EMCEE (CONT'D)

                         Fifteen seconds, everyone get 

                         ready...here we go!



                                     DOCTOR

                         Janine!  Kiss me now!



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                        19.





               On the TV, the ball starts to fall and the crowd starts to 

               count.



               TEN, NINE...



               JANINE trembles with excitement, wisps of smells smoking 

               around her, the Doc trying to get her attention, people in 

               the crowd counting.



               EIGHT, SEVEN...



               JANINE's eyes go wide, the crowd rises to their feet.  On 

               the wall behind them more images appear.  The Doc takes her 

               face in his hands and leans in closer for the kiss.  The 

               ball continues to drop.



               FANFARE AND DRUMS CRESCENDO 



               SIX, FIVE...



                                     DOCTOR (CONT'D)

                         It's me or the devil...kiss me now.



               Janine is undecided.



               FOUR, THREE...



               The ball is nearly down.  The walls are covered in images 

               from the last five scenes.  JANINE and the Doc's lips are 

               just inches apart.  Between them we can see the ball 

               descending to the bottom.



               TWO, ONE...



               CUT TO BLACK



               THE BAND strikes up Auld Lang Syne, the crowd YELLS HAPPY 

               NEW YEAR, etc...The SWISH of a breeze and silence.



               TAIL CREDITS OVER



               FADE IN: 

               Glamour still of Janine slowly burning up.



               FADE OUT 



               THE END
