Blazing Saddles Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • Bart heads into Lili's dressing room and gives her a red rose. She heads out to slip into something "more comfortable" and immediately walks back into the room, blowing out the lamps as she gets closer to Bart.
  • There is a knock on the door and Lili goes to speak with Hedley at the door. He asks how it's going and Lili tells him that seducing Bart is a cinch.
  • Lili closes the door on Hedley and heads back to the couch with Bart, where we can hear pants unzipping.
  • The next morning, Lili makes Bart some breakfast. He finishes up and says he needs to go back to work. As it turns out, Lili is the one who wants Bart around more than Bart wants to stay.
  • Bart gets back into work looking exhausted. Jim tells him that he's received a demand for Mongo's release signed by Hedley Lamarr. Bart is curious as to why a bigwig like Hedley would care about Mongo, but since the document is legal, he's forced to let Mongo go.
  • Bart walks over and wakes Mongo up with some water. But Mongo doesn't want to leave the sheriff's office. He wants to stay with Bart because he respects the fact that Bart whipped him and he has nowhere else to go.
  • Jim asks Mongo why Hedley Lamarr cares about Rock Ridge, and Mongo says he isn't sure, but that it all has something to do with where the railroad is going.
  • Bart decides that this is a good time to go snooping around the railroad construction site.
