         (Older man is smiling as he comes onstage.)

Springtime!  I love springtime!  It's when a young man's heart turns to love!

And an old man's heart, too....unfortunately skipping beats is not a great idea at this age...but it still feels good to see those girls when they don't have to wear heavy coats anymore, and they have on skirts.....and stockings!  Love those stockings!  I mean pantyhose.....but it's all the same.....after five months covered up - their legs are finally showing!

         (Hears something, waves at the side)

Okay, I know this is a new idea show, I'll get to it!  I'm at it, actually, my idea that I am giving to someone - anyone! - who wants to take it - FREE!  No charge for this beautiful idea..... I think it would be great to have a take-out place that offers just two items - chicken and hot dogs!  Although maybe you can add hamburgers along the way, but the object would be....(he relishes this)... have only pretty girls delivering the food!  The ad line -  from my youth - Have fun in the sun - put your hot dog in a bun!

And if someone smart - young or old! - takes this idea and makes a million dollars, the   only thing I would want is free food for the rest of my life - delivered by those pretty girls!

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Oh, almost forgot.  My favorite part -- the name of the franchise!   (Says is with enormous pride)  BREASTS AND BUNS!   (Takes a deep breath)  Now there's a place I wanna go!

        (Hears something, steps back in shock)

That's CHICKEN breasts and HOT DOG buns!  What were YOU all thinking about?

        (Exits to fantasies of chicks and dogs)
