Finally he brings out the cognac and sings "Some Enchanted Evening." And here's where the musical stuff gets really weird. De Becque is singing "Some Enchanted Evening," which goes on for like, ten minutes, and if they were on stage they could at least sort of dance around a little bit, but here there's nothing for the camera to do except show close-ups of de Becque and of Glenn Close staring at de Becque. De Becque sings. Glenn Close stares. She blinks. The corner of her mouth twitches. De Becque keeps singing. Glenn starts looking sort of uncomfortable. De Becque keeps singing. Glenn's face tightens into sort of a polite grimace. De Becque finally gets to the end of the song, which means there's a really unsettling close-up of him just standing there with his mouth open and kind of quivering. I'm glad people don't just sing to each other like that in real life.
Glenn gets ready to leave -- because really, what can you do after something like that -- and then de Becque decides this is a swell time to mention that he left France because he killed a man. This isn't quite the turn-on that he'd expected it to be, but Glenn Close is still pretty swoony and agrees to see him again. Then she leaves, and de Becque goes back into the plantation house. Oh, and he plays with his darling little biracial illegitimate children that he didn't bother to mention to Glenn. They sing "Dites Moi," which I guess is French for "What Adorable Little Bastards Are We."
Back at base, Glenn's all like "wow" over de Becque, and everyone's all like "gee, I don't know," about the whole thing, and then Captain Brackett calls her into his office and asks her to spy on de Becque. And when she leaves, the officers talk, and it turns out everyone knows about de Becque's dusky little brats except Glenn Close. Uh-oh.
Then Billis and Harry Connick Jr. take a boat to Bali Ha'i. Billis wants to go see a tribal ceremony which involves pigs getting slaughtered, and I guess Harry Connick Jr. has just been hearing Bali Ha'i call him and call him, and now he has to go over and tell Bali Ha'i to shut up already. When they get there, they're greeted by a bunch of native women in colorful sarongs with tropical flowers in their hair, and it's all very Club Med and lovely. Billis and Harry Connick Jr. are surprised to see that Bloody Mary is there, too, and she grabs Harry by the arm. She's like "come, Rieutenant, come!" and Harry's like "oh, okay," and the two of them go up a hill and over a stream to a little house on a mountainside. So then there's this pretty girl inside. "This Liat," says Bloody Mary. "She Tonkinese, like me." Harry Connick Jr. goes all googly-eyed. Insert "Tonka Toy" joke here. "You speak English?" he asks. "Little," says Liat. She also speaks about three words of French, so they just stand there and gawk at one another across the room and make each other horny by osmosis. "You like I go away?" Bloody Mary asks them, and she chuckles and waddles out. Then Liat totally just undresses right then and there. That didn't happen in our high-school production.
