Frank: You mind if I get a small rundown?
Andre: Of course, sit down.
Frank plays a jazz tune, and sings:
Baby, baby, whose baby are you?
Baby, baby, whose baby are you?
Andre: Well, that sounds like Mendelsohn’s Italian symphony
Andre plays a classic tune.
Frank: Sure the notes are the same, but it hasn’t got a beat.
Andre: A beat?
Frank: Yeah, you know, a beat. And thumps the piano
Andre: Oh no no, I’m afraid it hasn’t got that. Look, why don’t you take over?
Frank: Wait a minute, I do not want to crab your act.
Andre: Actually I am relieved. I am supposed to be entertaining. And I’m not succeeding. Goodnight.
