03x80 - The Marvelous Music of Maisel

Welcome back, cool cats and kittens, to "Miami After Dark". I refreshed mine during the break. I hope you did the same. Shy Baldwin. Hitmaker. Heartbreaker. Rumoured to be starring in Billy Wilder's next picture. Well, we've just obtained some footage from his freshly kicked-off world tour with some backstage surprises too. Believe you me, a lot of surprising things can happen backstage. Especially when the stage is your penthouse apartment. Let's roll the clip.

Welcome to the Fontainebleau. We have you in a...

Standard room. Twin beds.

Facing the ocean, not the pool.

Away from the elevator.

And the ice machine.

But near the cigarette machine.

Rose?

Shirley?

It's laundry day. Up, up!

Get up there!

I am not a prostitute. I'm a comic.

Is there a difference?

Yes. Prostitutes get paid more.

Government cheese!

♪ Oh, and now I'm scared ♪

So... 1960, change is coming.

If I am gonna do this, then I have to do this!

Off to the races.

Yes ma'am, off to the races.

Go!

You! You put this in my head. You made me passionate and independent and broke!

You're welcome.

Sensational. A master of the pop beat. But he'll break your heart with a ballad too. Sounds like a storm's brewing. If you're venturing out, stay dry. Me? I never venture out. I haven't left this room since 1954. Why would I?

Are you actually a Mrs. Maisel?

Yes, and no. And yes, again.

I've had a lot of champagne. Translate, please.

You like a man who has a lease.

Depends on the man. Depends on the lease.

I'm paid up through Friday.

I was a Mrs. Maisel and then we broke up. And then we un-broke up. Not sure what's confusing you.

Tonight, I can talk about s*x and men and s*x with men.

You still love him?

You never ask a girl, "How old are you?" or, "How much do you weigh?" or, "Do you love your ex-husband?"

Why are you here?

Just moral support for my wife.

While she divorces you?

That's right.

For adultery?

That's right.

That's very modern.

It's just a stamp on a piece of paper.

It's more than that.

You didn't even give me a chance. You left me out of the equation altogether.

I would have been on the road. We would have been separated a lot.

And the coming back together would have been sensational.

If you're going to have a voice you'd better be careful what that voice says.

It was nice meeting you, Mrs. Maisel. Welcome to The Apollo.

How come men fail and people say, "You gave it the old college try". But women fail and they say, "You gave it the old college try but you shouldn't be in college".

She's got guts! That is the difference between Midge Maisel and the great Sophie Lennon.

It's a good piece! It might get published.

So, you agree with it?

I never said I didn't!

It's probably not gonna happen.

It might!

Shy, are you here?

Don't talk to strangers. Isn't that what your momma tells you?

I don't understand. Your face is a mess. What kind of girl could have done this to you?

Oh, honey.

Oh.

My name is Dwayne.

You're going to be just fine, Dwayne.

♪ No one but you ♪

What's the matter? I'm not that bad.

I just can't think of anything funny to say.

Yeah. Me either.

♪ No one but you ♪

That's Diz Rippington on drums, as if I had to tell you. Listen, no one has to know, but I hear Shy had a disagreement with his opening act and his leggy comic got the boot. Left her standing right there on the tarmac. Ouch! Sounds like we'll never hear from her again. Look for Shy Baldwin, coming to your town soon. But for now, let's salute a favourite relative of mine. Uncle Sam. Enjoy.

Hiya, boys!

This is the first of a million flights and a million tours.

You boys stay safe out there, 'cause you're just too cute to lose!

I don't want to get tied up in something illegal.

Nobody's gonna tie you up.

There were periods of time when you were talking and there was no laughter.

That's called setting up a joke.

Well, you might want to lose that because nobody laughs.

So many wonderful melodies and they just keep running through my head.

Wait!

Swing arms, and twist.

Can you move? I can't see.

I had a baby four weeks ago!

And your husband drinks!

You're on the marquee!

For the whole world to see!

Well, that's last call, everyone. I'd invite you to stay, but people might talk. I'm Brye Adler, live from Miami, where we're known for our sunshine. But I like it... After Dark.
