M: I thought the itinerary said we were doing The Peninsula tonight?

S: Well, change of plans. There's a performer we have to see. It's kind of the reason we came to Paris.

H: And now, on our legendary stage, we have a special guest. A fallen idol from Shanghai who has came to Paris to rise from the ashes.

M: Why didn't you say anything?

S: Bitch, why didn't you say anything?
