FADE IN:

INT. MANSION. POST-CIVIL WAR ATLANTA, GEORGIA - DAY

SCARLETT escorts her new SUITOR to the front door of her mansion.

SUITOR
Don't leave me on tender hooks, Scarlett.

SCARLETT
Fiddle-dee-dee! I'll give you my answer tomorrow.

As MAMMY appears,

SCARLETT
Good day, Mr. Finnegan.

Upon Mr. Finnegan's departure,

MAMMY
Julie Marsden is waiting in the drawing room.

SCARLETT
Thank you, Mammy. Oh, bring in tea and biscuits.


INT. DRAWING ROOM - SAME

JULIE is fondly studying Ashley Wilkes' photo. When Scarlett appears, she sets it back in its rightful place.

SCARLETT
(extending her hand)
It's a pleasure meeting you, Miss Marsden.

MISS MARSDEN
Please. Call me, Julie.

SCARLETT
Are you planning to build a home here in Atlanta, Julie?
I'm not ashamed to say I have the finest Georgia pine.

Mammy enters and sets the tray of tea and biscuits down.

JULIE
Frankly, I've come for your advice.

SCARLETT
Advice?

JULIE
What's your secret?

SCARLETT
(perplexed)
Secret?

JULIE
You've been married three times.
(on verge of tears)
Seems, I'll be an old maid.

SCARLETT
Fiddle-dee-dee, Julie.

JULIE
Fiddle-dee-dee? That's the secret?

Before Scarlett replies, ASHLEY WILKES stumbles in.

ASHLEY
There you are, Scarlett. I rushed over to tell you...

He stops abruptly at the sight of Julie.

ASHLEY
Hello.

JULIE
(sensually)
Fiddle-dee-dee.

As she pours herself a cup of tea,

ASHLEY
Let me help you.

Scarlett watches on, aghast.

SCARLETT
(in rapid exchange)
Fiddle-dee-dee.

On cue, Ashley stops pouring to tend to Scarlett.

JULIE
(competetively)
Fiddle-dee-dee, Ashley.

He turns to Julie, smiling.

RHETT BUTLER barges in past Mammy.

RHETT
Scarlett, it's just no good. I can't go on without you.

SCARLETT
Rhett!

As Ashley pats Julie's hand,

SCARLETT
Ashley!

RHETT
Once and for all, Scarlett, make up your mind!

SCARLETT
And spoil the fun?

RHETT
(frustrated, turns to Mammy)
Fiddle-dee-dee, Mammy!

MAMMY
(blushing)
Lordy, Mr. Rhett. You is bad!

FADE TO BLACK

Oh Petra you clever little devil you! I was not expecting the end (still shaking her head and smiling with a big grin).

Happy Belated Birthday, and did you know? Your birthdate is the celebrated day of Saint David, patron saint of Wales!

Mama Zen said...

PV said...

Probably ten or less. I'm thinking I should watch that movie again. I can't even remember how long it's been, but I was pretty young.

I'm thinking you have a lot of fun writing these, and I do often wonder where all it is your mind goes as you put them together!

Keep 'em coming pv!

The ancient story of women and the magic power of words!?:)

Jay said...

Now that was funny! LOL!

It's been so long since I read Gone With The Wind that I couldn't possibly count references, but I bet there are more than ten. ;)

Sorry it took me so long to come and read this story. Things have been so busy here and now I have a 40 page ebook to write in a week. I'm going to need a lot of coffee for the late nights this week.
