|||||John Foxx- "Systems of Romance"||]|
INT. STAGE - DAY
[A man bearing a strong facial resemblance to John Foxx walks on stage. He's wearing a nondescript gray suit...and cowboy boots. His hair is graying save for a dark brown mullet on the back of his head. He speaks in a high-pitched Tennessee accent and addresses a welcoming audience.]
JOHN FOXXWORTHY: Now, a lot of y'all spot me on the street in my nondescript anonymous gray suit and ask, "Hey, John, how do I know if I'm a quiet man?" Well, I've broken it down for ya here and now...
If the Michelangelo layers of living figures and random architecture are displayed [adds emphasis] on a screen of water...you might be a quiet man.
[The audience laughs uproariously.]
If the city eases you through and absorbs you through your [adds emphasis] clothing [the audience starts laughing in anticipation]...you might be a quiet man.
OK, one more...["awwws" from the audience] If the streets [John starts laughing, but catches himself much to the delight of the audience]...if the streets open out into a piazza with a huge fountain at the center and worn marble figures [adds emphasis] tangle in the cascade [uproarious laughter in anticipation]...you might be a quiet man.
[He bows, runs backstage and kisses his wife.]
