Moment By Moment (1978) (part 9 of 9)
That night at the beach house, Trish is reading a book, when suddenly Strip wanders in, saying her door was open. She goes to touch him, but he draws away. She asks why he left the “Foot-ography” exhibition so suddenly, and wonders what he was so upset about. If I had to wager, I’d say it was two different guys staring hard at him. He tells her he wasn’t “good enough for your crowd.” No, don’t talk that way, Strip! With your blandness, you fit right in! He says all they did was “look down their noses at me”.
“Then,” he says, “I saw Dan Santini, and I couldn’t take it!” Apparently, Dan Santini is a “big honcho with the Mob” and Greg used to call him “Mr. Main Event” [?]. He’s convinced Santini is the one who’s “done Greg in”. Trish just gives him the same blank stare that she’s given him every other time he’s brought up Greg. Probably because she knows none of these details will ever be important to the story. Still… Dan Santini! The Dan Santini!
