DISSOLVE TO:
EXT. OFFICE BUILDING - NEW YORK - MORNING LONG SHOT -
SHOOTING DOWN

Pedestrian & vehicle traffic crowd the street in front of the office
building. CAMERA CENTERS on one figure in the crowd, Johnny, who walks slowly
along the sidewalk gazing steadily at something he carries in his hands.
CAMERA MOVES DOWN & SHOOTS OVER JOHNNY'S SHOULDER at what he is gazing at. It
is a large photograph of Jane. CAMERA MOVES BACK TO A MEDIUM SHOT as Johnny
continues on his way, still absorbed in the picture. A vicious bump from a
passer-by yanks Johnny back from dream realms to the work-a-day world.

JOHNNY
(murmuring an apology)
Sorry!

The passer-by has disappeared into the crowd. Johnny is about to go on,
suddenly realizes he is in front of his office building, quickly puts the
photograph in his brief case & enters the building.

INT. ARCADE - CLOSE (MOVING) SHOT - JOHNNY
He starts down the Arcade toward the elevators. A middle-aged man greets him
in passing.
MAN
'Morning, Mr. Mason.
JOHNNY
(cheerily)
Good morning!
A young lady is next to throw him a greeting.
YOUNG LADY
Hello, Johnny.
JOHNNY
Lovely morning!
A third greeting comes from a young man about his own age.
YOUNG MAN
Hi, Johnny!
JOHNNY
Beautiful morning!

By now he has reached an open elevator which is filling with people. The door
of the elevator next to it opens & starts to discharge its passengers. A
starter is stationed between the two elevators. A definite reaction from the
starter as he sees Johnny. Johnny is about to enter the first elevator, then,
seeing that the second one is empty, starts toward it. He finds his way
barred by the starter who warmly grips his hand.

STARTER
'Morning, Mr. Mason.
JOHNNY
Harry, it's a marvelous morning!
The starter has one hand behind his back. He is violently gesturing a signal
to the operator of the second elevator.
STARTER
Have a good trip?
JOHNNY
Sensational! STARTER
Great city, Boston!
JOHNNY

Terrific!
CLOSE UP - OPERATOR OF SECOND ELEVATOR
He gets the pantomimed signal of the starter, bangs the door

shut, & his elevator starts upward.
CLOSE SHOT - FEATURING JOHNNY & STARTER

The starter is shoving Johnny back to the first elevator.
Johnny manages to hand starter a cigar as he enters the
elevator. The elevator is now full, & the operator waits
for the signal to start. The starter looks toward the dial
of the second elevator.

CLOSE UP - DIAL
The second elevator is approaching the tenth floor & continuing up.
CLOSE SHOT - FIRST ELEVATOR
The starter gives the signal. The door closes, the elevator starts up.
DISSOLVE TO:
INT. CORRIDOR TWENTIETH FLOOR - CLOSE SHOT - AT ELEVATOR

The door opens, & several passengers emerge, including Johnny.
INT. OUTER OFFICE - DOOLITTLE SUITE
All the personnel of the law firm -- clerks, stenographers,

telephone girl -- are lined up watching the door.
CLOSE SHOT - THE OFFICE BOY
He stands against the wall clutching a string which runs

upward from his hand. CAMERA PANS to take in the entrance

door. We see the knob turn.
CLOSE UP - FLASH - THE OFFICE BOY
He yanks the string.
CLOSE SHOT - ENTRANCE DOOR

It has opened; & as Johnny enters, a contraption arranged over the door
opens; & Johnny is showered with rice & old shoes. There are whoops & shrieks
from off scene. One voice starts singing: "Happy Bridegroom, yoo-hoo" to tune
of "Happy Birthday" & others join in.

FULL SHOT
Johnny looking on bewilderedly while the office personnel sings.
EMPLOYEES

(singing)
Happy Bridegroom, yoo-hoo!
Happy Bridegroom, yoo-hoo!
Happy Bridegroom, Happy Bridegroom,
Happy Bridegroom, yoo-hoo!

The song ends with laughter & ad lib chatter as Johnny's
office mates surround him, pumping his hand, whacking his
back, congratulating or razzing him, according to their mood.

CLOSE SHOT - GROUP AROUND JOHNNY

AD LIB
A business trip. Huh?... Where's the
little woman, Johnny -- why didn't
you bring her along?... Is she one
of the Lodges or one of the Cabots?...
What's she got that I haven't got?...
You'd better be careful with your
expense account -- no extras now!...
That's what you get for going out of
