The City of Absurdity Lost Highway
a film by David Lynch
Story Board pg. 19

Alice: I went to this place... They made me wait forever. There was some guy guardin' the door... I started gettin' nervous...

...In another room I could see some guy liftin' weights... Both these guys gave me the creeps... They never said anything to me... So I just smoked cigarettes and waited.

Suddenly, a man steps quickly up to her - draws a pistol and cocks it against her head.

Mr. Eddy gives Alice a small gesture as if to say "well?".

I put a spell on you.
Because you're mine...

I can't stand the things that you do...
When you're fooling around...

I don't care if you don't want me.
'Cause I'm yours, yours, yours anyhow.

Yeah, yours, yours, yours!
I can't stand your foolin' around.
If I can't have you,
No one will!

When she is completely naked, Mr. Eddy gestures her over to him. Soon she is on her knees in front of him - making herself available for whatever he wants.

Alice looks in his eyes. She reaches her hand up to stroke his cheek...

Pete: Why didn't you just leave?
Alice doesn't say anything. She drops her hand - looks down.
Pete: You liked it.
Alice: If you want me to go away, I'll go away.

Alice: I'll set it up for tomorrow night. You'll meet me at his place at eleven o'clock... Don't drive there... Take a bus ... Make sure no one follows you... His address is easy to remember... It's 2224 Deep Dell Place... It's a white stucco job on the south side of the street... I'll be upstairs with Andy... The back door will be open... That leads into the kitchen - go through the kitchen to the living room - there's a bar there...

...At eleven fifteen, I'll ask Andy to fix me a drink... When he does, you can crack him in the head... Okay?
