In the Sewer

Elwood: I sure hope this thing leads some place.

Jake: Elwood. We're gone man.

[The "Mystery Woman" loosens off a round of machine gun fire. They hit the ground]

Elwood: Who is that girl?

Woman: Well Jake. You like just fine down there, slithering in the mud like vermin.

Jake: [To Elwood] No problem.

Woman: You're not gonna get away from me this time.

[she fires again... still missing them]

[In the ballroom, Mr Mercer hears the gunshots]

Mr Mercer: [To officers] Check that out. Let's go. Come on.

[Back in the sewer]

Jake: [To Woman] It's good to see you sweetheart.

Woman: You contemptible pig. I remained celebate for you. I stood at the back of a cathedral, waiting in celibacy for you, with 300 friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterer in the state. To obtain the seven limousines for the wedding party my father used up his last favours with Mad Pete Trollo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle and for the common good, I must now kill you and your brother.

[Jake gets up and slowly walks towards her.]

Jake: [Falling to his knees before her] Oh please don't kill us. Please, please don't kill us. You know I love ya baby, I wouldn't leave ya. It wasn't my fault.

Women: You miserable slug. You think you can talk you're way out of this? You betrayed me.

Jake: No I didn't. Honest. I ran outta gas. I had a flat tyre. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from outta town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake, a terrible flood, locust's. It wasn't my fault!! I swear to God!!

Woman: Oh Jake, Jake, honey.

[Jake embraces her in a passionate kiss, then drops her in the mud.]

Jake: [To Elwood] Let's go.

Elwood: [To the Woman] Take it easy.

[They run down the passage to the car. She follows in the distance.]

Elwood: It's a 106 miles to Chicago. We got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.

Jake: Hit it!

[The Woman runs out of the duct and fires at the moving car. The policemen above hear the shots and also start shooting at the car.]
