The Mouth Harp
(Gordon approaches Danny Boy, who is playing a mouth harp)
GORDON: Hey, cool – a mouth harp! What songs can you play?
DANNY BOY: Lot’s.
(Danny Boy plays Stairway to Heaven)
GORDON: That was amazing. Let’s hear some more.
(Danny Boy wows Gordon by playing Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit)
GORDON: That was quite fantastic.
DANNY BOY: Thanks.
GORDON: Do you know anything by Destiny’s Child?
(Danny Boy plays Lose My Breath)
GORDON: I was actually hoping for something off their Survivor album.
DANNY BOY: Let me see what I can do.
(Danny Boy plays Bootylicious)
DANNY BOY: How was that?
GORDON: You’re a musical genius!
DANNY BOY: They call me the David Bowie of mouth harps.
GORDON: I play trombone. We should definitely jam sometime.
DANNY BOY: Hmmm. Trombone and the mouth harp?
(Danny Boy thinks about this potential partnership for six minutes while Gordon waits patiently, drooling)
DANNY BOY: Well...seems like a pretty natural collaboration to me, you got yourself a deal!
(Gordon and Danny Boy shake hands… this will go on to become their “secret” handshake)
GORDON: (Giggles) I’ve had dreams that end this way.
DANNY BOY: Gordon, my slightly balding friend, we’re living the dream.
(Gordon and Danny Boy hug passionately)
