Here’s more from the FRASIER episode, “Room Service”. Based on the current trend of sitcoms, this kind of comedy is no longer in vogue. It’s too bad. There should always be a place for it.
INT. LILITH’S HOTEL ROOM – CONTINUOUS
IN BED, LILITH AT THE DOOR, HAVING JUST ASKED “WHO IS IT?” NILES
Room service, Ma’am.
) Oh, that’s right. We ordered breakfast last night. Niles
LILITH OPENS THE DOOR AND LETS IN THE ROOM SERVICE WAITER. HE ENTERS, ROLLING A BREAKFAST CART INTO THE ROOM. HE’S A CHIPPER FELLOW.
Good morning, Ma’am, Sir.
THE WAITER STARTS TO SET UP BREAKFAST AT THE TABLE.
I have eggs Benedict and eggs Florentine.
Did you bring ketchup?
Oh, No, I’m sorry. Let me go get that for you right now.
Ketchup on eggs Florentine?
(Joking) Oh, your first breakfast together?
Just get it!
THE WAITER EXITS.
GETS OUT OF BED AND SLIPS ON A BATHROBE. NILES
Now I remember ordering this. It’s the breakfast I always order after a night of passion.
Eggs Benedict…very rich.
Well, I only have it once a year. (then) Let’s dig in.
THEY SIT AT THE TABLE. THERE’S A KNOCK AT THE DOOR.
That was quick.
LILITH CROSSES TO THE DOOR AND IS JUST ABOUT TO OPEN IT WHEN THEY HEAR:
Lilith, are you awake?
AND LILITH SPEAK IN HUSHED TONES. NILES
What do we do?
NEARLY KNOCKS THE TRAY OVER GETTING UP. NILES
Just a second.
Why did you answer?
I don’t know. I’m not very good at this. Hide in the bathroom.
THEY BOTH DART FOR THE BATHROOM.
No, not you!
Here, take the cart with you.
STARTS TO PUSH THE CART INTO THE BATHROOM. THEN: NILES
Food in the bathroom?
NILESAND THE CART INTO THE BATHROOM, KNOCKING DOWN. NILES
LILITH RUNS TO THE DOOR, FEIGNS COMPLETE INSOUCIANCE AND OPENS THE DOOR.
