FADE IN:

EXT. FAIR – DAY

Starting from a bunch of balloons tied together we slowly start to fall back and up as Michael walks from behind the left side, Patti from the right.

From this high angle we track with them in a wide shot as they become farther and farther apart, fairgoers between the two.

Soon they are on opposite sides of the frame, game booths separating them.

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the falling in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry

cry

You got me falling in love

got me falling in love

Camera starts to crane down left, pushing in on Michael…

LYRICS

(singing)

Cry

Cry

Cry

Cry

… And tracking with him as he walks towards it, through the crowd and past booths.

LYRICS

(singing)

You’re not like anybody

I ever knew

but that don’t mean that

I don’t know where we are

And though I find myself attracted to you

this time I’m trying not to go too far

’cause

We slowly start to crane back up and out to the tracking wide, bringing Patti back in as we do so…

LYRICS

(singing)

No matter how it starts it ends the same

someone’s always doing someone more

Trading in the passion for that taste of pain

it’s only gonna happen again

On opposite sides of the wide frame the two do a little dance as they walk and SING the CHORUS, high angle camera tracking.

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

II’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry

Camera starts to crane down right, pushing in on Patti…

LYRICS

(singing)

All night

All night

… And tracking with her as she walks towards it through the crowd and past booths.

LYRICS

(singing)

And though I’m trying not to look in your eyes

each time I do they kind of burn right through me

Don’t want to lay down in a bed full of lies

and yet my heart is saying come and do me

DISSOLVE TO:

Camera tracking on Michael.

LYRICS

(singing)

Now we’re just a web of mystery

a possibility of more to come

I’d rather leave the fantasy of what might be

but here I go falling again

DISSOLVE TO:

The high and wide tracking of the both of them as they SING the CHORUS.

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry cry cry

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. HOUSE OF MIRRORS – CONTINUOUS

Extreme close-up, Michael’s slick footwork slides him into place.

LYRICS

(singing)

Over you…

Patti standing alone…

LYRICS

(singing)

Over you…

Falling back a little to reveal Michael behind her.

LYRICS

(singing)

Oh…

Close-up, Patti…

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the falling…

Is he really behind her? As Michael’s image multiplies among the countless mirrors on both sides…

LYRICS

(singing)

You got me falling in love

More distorting mirrors take us to…

LYRICS

(singing)

Got me falling in love

Falling in love

Patti and Michael’s arms. They are together!

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the fallin’ in love

that makes me cry cry cry

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the fallin’ in love

that makes me cry cry cry cry cry

Makes me cry cry cry

They rush out of the house of mirrors hand-in-hand to an awaiting crowd, all dancing and celebrating as Michael and Patti lead. (Covering everyone from multiple angles and pans)

Starting back on Michael and Patti having fun with all we slowly crane up and out to…

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry

It’s the fallin’ in love

that’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that makes me cry cry cry

Yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah

I’m falling in love

I’m falling…

Yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah

I’m falling in love

(I’m falling)

It’s the falling in love

it’s makin’ me high

It’s the being in love

that’s makin’ me cry cry cry…
