The Ivanova Dance

Setting:
    In an effort to encourage a new diplomatic relationship with a new alien race, Commander Susan Ivanova soon finds out that she must close the deal by having sexual intercourse with the Lumati Diplomatic representative.

      Fortunatly, the Lumati do not know how humans interact sexually

Ivanova **Begins dancing around Correlilmerzon who is standing perfectly still

    Boom shakalaka boom shakalaka!
    Hey there! Hey there! Three bags full!
    You come here often?
      Yes, I do!

    Dinner shakalaka
    DRINK shakalaka
    Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss
    GRAB!

    How do you like it so far?

Correlilmerzon

    **Worried groan**

Ivanova

    I slept with you the other night
    You didn't call you didn't write
    *pout* I think you did it just for spite!

    AH!
    Yes, OH YES
    OH YES
    AH! YES
    Tell me about your portfolio
    OH YES YES YES YES!
    Lie to me about your family!
    OH YES!
    OH YES!
    OH YES!
    YES YES YES
    YYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!!!

    *sigh*

    God, you're good!

Correlilmerzon

    **Confused**What do I do now?

Ivanova

    Old style, you roll over and go to bed.
    New style, you go out for pizza and I never see you again.

Correlilmerzon

    **Hesitant** Perhaps, I'll call you.

.....At no point does Correlimerzon touch Susan Ivanova

In interviews, JMS has said that the crew could barely stop themselves from laughing while Claudia Christian did the dance. But they only needed 3 takes. The two had this to say in an online interview:

CC: To the ambassador's disappointment - it was a one shot deal.

JMS: I was on set; she nailed it from the starting take.

CC: Nailed...nice choice of words, Joe.

JMS: I are a riter...i LEarn it GooD
