Robinson) forces her to sing a torch song, "Moanin' Low," first. Humiliated, she croons it out painfully, then pleads, "Give me that drink now, Johnny!" "No," he fumes. "But you promised!" she cries. "So what?" "You said that …" "But you were rotten," he growls. She bursts into tears and collapses onto a chair.
