Keith Whitney: "That was quite a night for me, Mama. I'll never forget that night. I thought I'd be scared. I thought I might lose my nerve at the last minute. Instead... I was exhilarated! That's the only word for it. I felt as if I was doing something I was born to do. It was like the first time I went skiing. I mean really skiing, down that big mountain in Aspen... when the whole thing came together for me. The snow and the wind and the sky and...gravity! Yes,
that's what I felt that night in Jim Fields apartment... that gravity was on my side...(PANTOMIMING IT AS GERALDINE, KEITH'S MOTHER, WATCHES HIM WITH HORROR-FILLED EYES:) Jimmy's door was opened! Imagine that! Rosella forgot to close the door behind her. Then she got in bed to wait for him. Only I showed up first. (HE DOESN'T COMPLETE THE STABBING GESTURE. WHISPERS) Then I did what I had to do...."
