O meu lê zona 1, Ricardo. E esse particular dvd já há algum tempo que anda a ser lido. Infelizmente, não tem o Sorry-Grateful. Felizmente, tem quase todo o resto, incluindo a epopeia da Elaine Stritch para interpretar o Here's to the ladies who lunch - Everybody laugh. Lounging in their caftans/And planning a brunch/On their own behalf./Off to the gym,/Then to a fitting,/Claiming they're fat./And looking grim,/'Cause they've been sitting/Choosing a hat./Does anyone still wear a hat?/I'll drink to that.//And here's to the girls who play smart - Aren't they a gas?/Rushing to their classes/In optical art,/Wishing it would pass./Another long exhausting day,/Another thousand dollars,/A matinee, a Pinter play,/Perhaps a piece of Mahler's./I'll drink to that./And one for Mahler!//And here's to the girls who play wife - Aren't they too much?/Keeping house but clutching/A copy of LIFE,/Just to keep in touch./The ones who follow the rules,/And meet themselves at the schools,/Too busy to know that they're fools./Aren't they a gem?/I'll drink to them!/Let's all drink to them!//And here's to the girls who just watch - Aren't they the best?/When they get depressed,/It's a bottle of Scotch,/Plus a little jest./Another chance to disapprove,/Another brilliant zinger,/Another reason not to move,/Another vodka stinger./Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! I'll drink to that.//So here's to the girls on the go - Everybody tries./Look into their eyes,/And you'll see what they know:/Everybody dies./A toast to that invincible bunch,/The dinosaurs surviving the crunch./Let's hear it for the ladies who lunch - Everybody rise!/Rise!Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!/Rise!
