Jim Lovell looks across the road and is surprised when he sees a familiar face winding through the line of parked cars. It’s Marilyn.
Jim smiles. “Well, hey,” he says, “that looks like Marilyn Lovell! But it can’t be – – she’s not coming to the launch!”
“I heard it was gonna be a hell of a show,” says Marilyn.
“Who told you that?” asks Jim.
“Some guy I know,” replies Marilyn. They smile at each other.
“You can’t live without me!” says Jim.
“Okay, folks,” says the Press Agent, “Let’s say goodnight. We’ve got a big day tomorrow for these guys!” The families say goodnight.
“Did you hear about Ken?” Jim asks Marilyn.
“Yeah,” says Marilyn. Jim nods. They blow each other a kiss.
