Deleted Scene: Hard Eight, Scene 23

LONGER SCENE 23 (Just after the Craps Table Stories)


John looks to Sydney, spots Sydney's mood, then looks back to Jimmy.



JOHN
...Jimmy...

JIMMY
What?

JOHN
Just...y'know...I dunno --

JOHN
Hey, I mean, I live up here.  I know what flies and what doesn't and to tell some cocktail waitress she's got a nice ass is no crime.  It's a compliment to them.  Believe me.

SYDNEY
You said it as she walked away.

The Keno Girl arrives back to drop the ticket.

KENO GIRL
...Your ticket...

JIMMY
Honey, honey, can I ask you a question?

KENO GIRL
What?

JIMMY
Can I tell you first of all: "You have a very nice ass."

KENO GIRL
Thank you.

JIMMY
My friends here were embarrassed that I would say that to you.  My question is: Are you embarrassed?



KENO GIRL
No.

JIMMY
(turns to Sydney)
See?
(back to Keno Girl)
You take it as a compliment?

KENO GIRL
Sure.

JIMMY
Good.

KENO GIRL
Do you want to play?

JIMMY
No thank you.

KENO GIRL
(to Sydney)
Good luck, Sir.

Sydney hands her a five dollar tip, she exits.

JIMMY
You see what I'm saying?

SYDNEY
I suppose you're right, then.

JOHN
...Jimmy, let's go play....

JIMMY
Still waitin' on our drinks here.

JOHN
We'll get them at the tables.
