Oh Emerald Isle, surrounded by the raging sea.

- monologue by an actress with an Irish accent in the second person: She has found racy magazines in her dormer's room.
- She accidentally read his journal, found it was about her.
- She admits to having feelings for him. She sings Misty, is greeted with applause and thanks the band, starts on "That Old Black Magic" in a monotonic whisper.
- Joe: A magician sets his audience on fire; a volunteer is sawed in two and dies horribly; a magician is pulled into a hat by a disembodied hand.
- Ode to woman: high school cheerleader, business woman, nurse, homemaker, secretary, stewardess, prostitute, torch singer.
- Actors: the Irish singer calls her Agent to complain about her hotel, they argue. Joe delivers a second person monologue: you explore a run down hotel; a mental patient obsessively opens and closes a trunk; bathroom graffiti.
- The story of a maid; she knows the secrets of the inhabitants of the house she cleans.
- When she discovers that the family is planning to fire her, she leaves and becomes a blues singer.
- The Irish singer and her agent continue to argue.
- Joe monologue: one side of a stock conversation to accompany an illicit affair.
- The Irish singer talks about comforting men.
- Edie Brickell song, "Nothing."
