Day 1 of Rehearsal
Three days before Showtime
At Joe's Bar
Song playing in the background,"That River"

Duncan
You want us to dance to your music? This music?

Joe
And what's wrong with it?

Duncan
There's nothing wrong with it, its ... its just ..

Fitz
... bloody stupid!

Joe
Stupid? STUPID?!

Methos
Joe, we can't strip to the Blues. Why can't we just use Queen, huh?

Kronos
Coz I don't like Queen, Brother.

Richie
Come on guyz, we're talking about stripping here not some Rock concert.

Duncan
It's not easy as you think it is, Richie.

Connor
I still think it's a bad idea.

Fitz
This is quite harder than I thought. Who came up with this idea anyway?

Everybody looks at Methos

Methos
(wide eye, innocent look)
Who seconded the motion?

Everybody looks at Richie

Richie
Guys, guyz. Work with me will ya? So there's this chick I really dig, okay? And she's into this Full Monty thing. Did anyone see the movie by the way?

Fitz
Hilarious, yes, but really laddie, there are other ways to seduce a lady. Besides, after the show, you'd be dead the next day. There's no way you can boink her then.

Duncan
And what's your excuse, Methos?

Methos
I don't have to explain myself.

Kronos
Oh yes you do.

Methos
No ones forcing you guyz to bloody join me.

Connor
You mean, I'm the only one who got death threats in this room?

Everybody looks at each other

Fitz
What did yours say?

Connor
Haggis can kill.

Methos laughs, Fitz coughs, Kronos smirks, while Duncan comforts Connor and Richie's left confused.

Richie
Haggis?

Duncan
Nevermind. How about you? (looks at Fitz)

Fitz
No letter. No note written in blood but .. (takes a deep breath).. I can't find my golf clubs.

Kronos
You're going to strip for golf clubs?

Fitz
Well ... (points at Connor) ..Haggis! And besides, those clubs are my babies.

Duncan
Kronos?

Kronos
Nobody dares threatening a Horseman.

Duncan
(eyebrow cocked)
Don't tell me you're here for the fun of it.

Kronos
(pained expression)

Methos
It's her, isn't it?

Connor
Who?

Methos
(laughs)
Godiva pushed you into this, didn't she?

Kronos
(charges Methos, Duncan restrains him)
Somehow she heard about this silly idea of yours and found me.

Methos
I duuno how she knew about it, really. Would I lie to you?

Kronos
Yes and you can quote me on this, "Have you done anything else?"

Richie
Well, whoevers sending those death threats apparently know nothing of our kind.

Connor
Oh yeah? You didn't lemme finish. Haggis can kill. Strip or Lose your Head.

Joe stops playing his guitar and approaches the group

Joe
We won't be making progress if we stand here all day and argue. Forget those threats and lets get on with rehearsal. We are doing this, right?

Duncan
Yes. Okay, so, what? What do we do?

Joe
We'll vote for a song. The majority wins.

Richie
Hey Mac! Why are you here?

All six Immortals feels the presence of another Immortal. Amanda walks in.

Amanda
Why is everybody still clothed? I thought by this time I drop by, I'll be seeing some skin.

Everybody, except Duncan, says in unison ..Amanda! They glance back at Duncan, all break into a grin .. Amanda .. they all acknowledged knowingly.
