Scene 5

5 DAYS LATER

[Josh sits in ordinary clothes at home in front of the TV with a blank expression]

{MONTAGE OF DONNA MEMORIES BEGINNING WITH FB1 SPLIT BY 3 OTHER FB’S AND ENDING WITH VO AS DIRECTED. ‘WIND BENEATH MY WINGS’ AS ORIGINALLY SUNG BY BETTE MIDLER, IS PLAYED, SUNG INSTEAD BY A MAN}

FLASH BACK 1 (In Excelsis Deo)

“Skis would have killed you?”
“Yeah”


It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

FLASH BACK 2 (17 People)

"If you were in an accident I wouldn't stop for red lights. Thanks for taking me back. Oh, and the flowers are beautiful."


Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

FLASH BACK 3 (Pilot)

"I brought you some coffee."
"What's going on, Donna?"
"Nothing's going on."
"...Donnatella Moss, when did you start working for me?"
"During the campaign."
"And how long have you been my assistant?
"A year and a half."
"And when's the last time you brought be a cup of coffee?" [Josh doesn't allow her to answer.] "It was never. You have never brought me coffee...Donna, if I get fired, I get fired."

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

FLASH BACK 4 (100,000 AIRPLANES)

“So many women, so little charm” {THE MONTAGE ENDS ON THIS}

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.


[During this last chorus Josh has walked over to a shelf on which is a picture of the west wing group on the night of Dead Irish Writers, he picks it up – camera focuses on Donna]

VOICE OVER [as music fades] –"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”

[Josh throws the frame to the ground breaking the glass]

J: DAMN!

[He runs his hand through his hair distractedly]
J: I need to be back at work
