MARK and CARSON are sitting in the restaurant eating a
pizza. The casino manager comes in and sees them. He
comes over, pulls a chair up to the table, and sits.

MANAGER
How's our pizza compare to the big
city?

MARK

Mmm.

MANAGER
My son tells me that you guys have a
band going.

MARK

76

Mmm mmm.

MANAGER
He says you're hot. Between all the
money I've spent on music lessons and
he's spent on records, I would hope
that he'd know.

MARK
He studies with Mr. Cremetti, doesn't
he?

MANAGER
Since the second grade.

MARK
Stan plays guitar with us.

MANAGER
No shit? That's one talented family.
Well, anyway, I have a problem. I need
a band to play Thursday nights. You
interested?

MARK
Here? But we're not country.

MANAGER
I know. I want some new music in here.
I already got Fridays and Saturdays
booked with out-of-town talent.

CARSON
What about the Highwaymen?

MANAGER
Ben and Roy both work for Crowell
Copper. They're getting transferred to
the Kingston, Arizona mine. I don't
think that Barry Lee playing bass all
by himself is going to cut it. So what
do you say?

MARK

It's a deal.

MANAGER

77

Great. Bring your gear round the back
Thursday, anytime. Play from eight to
one. Ten minute break every hour.

The manager leaves for the kitchen.

MARK
Damn, I forgot to ask him about the
money.

CARSON
Screw the money. Stan's going to shit
a concrete block.
