"Annie Oakley" is packed full of the riproaring fun of Buffalo's Wild West Show! Annie falls in love with showman Frank, but first she's got to get a few things straight...
BILL: Before anybody knew what happened, Annie Oakley became the Wild Wests most shining star!
(ANNIE turns, ALL applaud.)
ANNIE: (hop and kick) Hot-diggety-dog!
(Sound subsides, JESS and BILL exit. FRANK helps ANNIE down.)
ANNIE: I hope you dont mind, Frank.
FRANK: Mind? Why should I mind? Just cuz nobody ever beat me in a shootin match before you? Just cuz I used to be Buffalo Bills biggest star! What do I care if I get whupped by a girl?
ANNIE: You aint been whupped, Frank. Why, were a team, you and me. And as I think you noticed, I aint just a girl no more.
FRANK: (takes box from his vest) I been carrying this around for some time now. Werent sure if I should give it to you.
ANNIE: What is it? A peace pipe?
FRANK: I decided. If I cant beat ya... better join ya.
(Gives HER a box, SHE opens it, diamond ring. SHE smiles, away from HIM, then becomes solemn.)
ANNIE: You gotta understand, Frank. I come into my own now. I aint like other ladies. I come and go and do as I please. And no diamond ring is ever gonna change that.
(ANNIE holds ring out to HIM, HE covers HER hands with his.)
FRANK: Annie, yous a army a polecats all bound up in five feet of woman. Dont ever change, I dont think Id survive!
(THEY look at each other in silent agreement. FRANK starts to kiss HER, SHE puts out HER hand for a shake.)
ANNIE: As for this ring, take it back. I got no use for diamonds. (walks away)
FRANK: But Annie, a fellas supposed to give his gal a ring!
ANNIE: I got no use for "supposed to" neither. Buy me a horse I can call my own!
(We hear cheers: SOUND CUE #12.
JESS: (leading ANNIE, on "horseback") Frank did just that and every night Annie rode into the arena atop her handsome white stallion, My Own, blowin kisses at her adoring fans...
(ANNIE turns on the cube, blowing kisses, SHE sees FRANK and blows a special kiss to HIM. HE catches it on his cheek.)
FRANK: Thats my Annie.
