Roll clip: Montage of happy couple cutting wedding cake, artist wondering what Jenny is NOT saying about Vegas, Dean Martin singing "Sway", Brad Pitt and George Clooney in conversation, head to the car.
"So you think we can do it?" Pitt shields the match with his manly hands as he lights up his first smoke of the day.
Clooney rolls his eyes, raises his eyebrows, looks at Pitt," Piece of cake."
The artist chuckles. Sips her coffee.
Pitt to Clooney, "Ya got the blueprint right?"
Clooney, exasperated, "Do I look like an idiot?"
Pitt, sardonic grin, "Just last night, yeah."
Clooney (fake laugh, shaking his head), "Just take a look at it. See, you can tell where the headliners will be."
Pitt ponders the plan. "Looks like a solid foundation. Structure's in place."
Clooney, "Hey, she knows what she's doing." Winks at the artist. Artist lifts coffee mug to her lips. Smiles to herself.
Pitt, "It's going to need some glitz, some finesse." He smiles, mischief in his eye. Stares at the sliver of orange just starting to show. Echos of neon. This is Vegas after all.
"And romance. " Pitt adds.
Clooney smiled to himself. "Just leave that to me."
The car accelerates as they head down the strip.
Jenny to artist, "Will they be back? It doesn't look done to me."
But the artist is hearing that song that popped into her head at 4 am this morning. "Not to worry Jenny. You heard what Clooney said, I know what I am doing...now did I tell you about the time I saw Sinatra in Vegas with my friends from Paramount?"
