Script, Part one: Moonlight

Scene: Moonlight sets over a villa in France; we see the moonlight strike the water and shimmer off, as if it were an impressionist painting. In the background a piano plays forebodingly in C# minor, whilst in the distance we can see the silhouette of a Chanel jacket rip through the crisp midnight air. We see Karl come out of the villa.

Karl: Oh Moonlight, beautiful moonlight. How art thou tonight? Doth one twinkle upon the silver keys; doth one stand and start to shiver; shall I sketch a melody? Shall I sketch upon a quiver?

Moonlight: Karl, you fox of fashion; you flightly fever'd bird; you high collared wearing fellow. For I am good and I am fine; for I am sweet and deeper than a river.

Karl: Celebratory chic, I am myself. My collars higher than a giant's liver. For I have sketched a dress of air; and a coat that glimmers and glitters.

Moonlight: Do you dare to dance with me? To tango with the light of Lear? To dance with the funk of a thousand years?

Karl: However shall I dance with thee, for you are not human like me?

Moonlight: It seems to me that you're a god; of the highest order. So dance with me, Kaiser dear; tango but do not tantrum.

Karl: It is only Anna that leads the tantrum; for I posses no emotions. For I am Karl Lagerfeld, and I can walk through oceans.

Moonlight: Then we shall dance and Yves shall sing, and I shall project my rays down hither.

LIGHTS FADE, EVERYTHING GOES DARK. THE DEMODE PEOPLE ARE NOW TAKEN OUT OF THE AUDIENCE, IF THEY SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET IN.
