Blaze: Hello, I'm Blaze. But my friends call me Case... (Carmen cuts him off) Carmen: I know who you are. I'm Carmen. Blaze: Nice to meet you. Carmen: Nice to meet you. Blaze: So what's a fine lady like you doing in Philly? Small town masquerading as a big city. Carmen: I won't be here for long. See I have dreams... plans. Blaze: I wanna hear about 'em. Carmen: (sucks teeth) Pssh. No, you don't. Blaze: No, really. I'm interested. Carmen: Really? (Blaze nods, Carmen puts down drink) Carmen: Okay. I want to move to LA. I want to be an actress, a star. I want my own movies, my own TV show, my own sitcom. (laughs.) Blaze: (Looks up and gestures lights shining.) I can see your name in lights already, like... Carmen: (Sucks teeth) Don't patronize me. (Gets up and leaves. Blaze grabs her. She looks at her arm then him as if to say 'get off'.)
