skirt raisin’

What? — WHAT?

It’s a famous fish come callin’ in the middle of the night. 

The Incredible Mr. Limpet (please god, no) on a special mission.

Cartoon in the boudoir — did I ask for this?

Ah — not quite what I meant by other fish in the sea.  But then you never know.  

Might be something here I need right now.  An answer to a question I’ve posed? 

Is that what it is?  Careful how you wish?

After all, that was the working title of this film.  

How I wish —  how I wish —

That it?  An affirmation (I have the most wonderful man in my life) gone wrong? 

I said ‘man’ not fish — ‘life’ not bathtub.

Fish got nice lips, at least.

I’ll raise my skirt to that.
