Lina is mortified and flees the stage. The current generation of moviegoers didn't want their parents' recycled productions, man. All they do is change the time and location.

Preparing for their first talkie, Don and Lina are having elocution lessons.
He was supposed to be at a party with her. But if the movie is a musical, what about Lina's voice? He's been waiting for Don to arrive to reveal a surprise!

Kelly and Donen responded enthusiastically, and immediately become involved in re-writes and adjustments to the script.
Don bursts out laughing as he stands face to face with the girl who only an hour ago claimed to be the next Ethel Barrymore. Everybody's stoked to get a glimpse of Don and Lina, the film's stars.
