MY GOD, NO! NOOOOOOOO! He pushes QUINN aside and rescues his book. FITZ falls to his knees and frantically puts out the flames. The curtain drops on PENELOPE, the camera switches off and she disappears. QUINN turns off the blowtorch and walks back to the trestle table and puts the blowtorch back. BURNS suddenly spits a mouthful of whiskey into QUINN’s face. QUINN grabs at his eyes as BURNS punches him in the head. The two begin to fight badly. DUNNE walks up to a sobbing FITZ as he tries to put the book back together.

Somehow your first morning’s breath rides the treacherous wind and finds its way to my own nose and awakens me! ) And it is a fine breath!
