Cliff Bradshaw (Nate Houran) has just interrupted his love interest, Sally Bowles (Jay Eddy), canoodling with another man. She storms offstage and Cliff moves to follow her. He’s stopped by Ernst (Jeremy Funke), who wants to make a deal with him. Cliff wants no part of it. Ernst is a little confused, but not thrown off his game.
“I know you need the money,” he says, “so it must be something else. Ah — that Jew at the party?”
That’s when Cliff hits Ernst, landing a punch right in his stomach.
