EXT. STAGE, LEILANI’S COVE - DAY

The Hula Girls instruct WOMEN AND MEN TOURISTS, including Robert and Bobby to line up, Women on one side and Men on the other.

KAUAI
A kissing line is when one town meets another town and it’s a way to say Aloha, which means hello, goodbye, I love you, and much more. You guys, once you start kissing, keep your hands off the girls, maybe a little hug...

Kauai points to Leilani, who steps forward. Kauai closes his eyes, puckers up...

The DRUMBEAT starts again ..... to a crescendo!

Leilani steps back and the fattest Hula Girl steps forward and takes the kiss that Kauai meant for Leilani.

The Tourists LAUGH.

(It’s all part of the act.)

KAUAI (CONT’D)
Women are called wai-hine, and men are called ka-ne (kan-E.)

The DRUMBEATS starts again with HAWAIIAN MEN working up a storm.

The Men and Women Tourists start going down the line, shaking hands, smiling, looking into each other's eyes.

MEN TOURISTS
Aloha (ad lib)

WOMEN TOURISTS
Aloha (ad lib) kane.

And giving a little kiss on the cheek. In the beginning the kisses are like pecks on the cheek, quick and dry somewhat strained. But after the 5th, 6th, even 10th greeting the Tourists starts warming up and starts enjoying themselves.

By the end of the line Bobby starts enjoying himself especially kissing some of the YOUNGER TOURIST in the lineup who kiss him on the CHIN, FOREHEAD, EARS....

He comes to Leilani, who turns her cheek to Bobby to kiss.

BOBBY
How come?

LEILANI
I don’t kiss on mouth. Saving for my husband.

BOBBY
Oh, a virgin eh?

LEILANI
Yes, and proud of it! Most of my friends have taken the oath...

BOBBY
Oath?

Robert, ROBERT VIDEOTAPES the ALOHA FLOW LINE and especially Bobby's reaction to all of the affection of the Hula Girls and Leilani’s reaction.

EXT. TOURIST TABLES, LEILANI’S COVE, OAHU, HAWAII - NIGHT

Bobby gets back to the table, and he’s blushing. There's lipstick all over his face and ears.

Bobby plops into his chair.

BOBBY
Dad! Did you see me? Did you see me? That was so cool! I love this place!

ENTRANCE/EXIT TO LEILANI’S LUAU - NIGHT

Bobby is wearing FIVE LEIS photographed surrounded by Five Hula Girls including Leilani and Rosie, for the tourist photo. TIKI TORCHES frame the picture.

EXT. TOUR BUS - NIGHT

Going past the MENEHUNE PONDS...

INT. TOUR BUS - NIGHT

TOUR BUS DRIVER, 60’S, part Hawaiian.

TOUR BUS DRIVER
These ponds were allegedly made in one night by the Mehehune, or little people.

BOBBY
Like Leprechauns

TOUR BUS DRIVER
Sort of like... leprechauns, but not green...If you see a MENEHUNE, you have good luck for life...

There is a TORCH LIGHT on the ROCKS with a SMALL PERSON throwing a FISHING NET.

BOBBY
Look! Look! A menehune fishing....

TOUR BUS DRIVER
I see nothin’. Probably some fisherman. Best time to fish at night. Torch attract fish, many fish.

BOBBY
It was a menehune!

Robert turns the VIDEOCAMERA towards where Bobby points.

CLOSE-UP VIDEOCAMERA SCREEN

A SMALL MAN is throwing an ancient type of FISHING NET into the sea as the BUS SPEAKER softly plays, “WE’RE GOING TO A HUKILAU.”

Bobby stares happily at the PHOTO of him and the HULA GIRLS.

BOBBY (CONT’D)
Hey Dad. This girl looks familiar. Remember the dream I had of a girl flying through the air on a rainbow colored paraglider? That’s her! That’s her face!

ROBERT
You’re imagining things. You’ve an overactive imagination!

BOBBY
No Dad! That’s her from my dream before you woke me up to come here. If I’d gone
to the nightclubs I... oh oh....

Bobby on his CELL PHONE...

BOBBY (CONT’D)
Oh Carl, sorry, I’m so sorry, I forgot. Where’s you now? I’ll sneak out....

ROBERT
I don’t think so.... We get back you get to sleep. We have sports to do tomorrow.

The LIGHTS OF HONOLULU and the FREEWAY NOISES are eclipsed by Bobby's happy face on the photo of him and the Hula Girls and LEILANI.

Bobby's grinning from ear to ear.

BOBBY
Thanks for making me go with you Dad. If I didn’t go, I would have missed her.

ROBERT
But she’s a hula dancer Bobby. A Hula Dancer. (Disparaging tone of voice.) You have college to attend and a career ....

Bobby won’t let his happiness be spoiled by his Dad’s feet on the ground attitude.

BOBBY
This is the greatest place on earth. These people are so happy! They're so full of love. Why is everything so cool over here?

ROBERT
We’re on vacation. These people’s job is to dance and play the drums, and all that. While they're genuinely happy, their job is to make you feel good.

BOBBY
Man I just don't know why we can't be happy like that all the time.

ROBERT
Yeah, I know what you mean.
