La Dolce Gilda

From an SNL spoof of a Fellini film, back in the '70s. They re-aired it shortly after Gilda Radner's death. Video is nowhere to be found, but a most beautiful piece, especially the ending:

Gilda: You're still following me? Stop! Leave me alone! [ walks away, then turns around and smiles] I'm just teasing. Come here. Come.. closer. You know I love you, my little monkey. But leave me my dreams. Dreams are like paper, they tear so easily. I love to play. But every time I play.. you win. Ciao. [ she walks away ]

[ a mime holding a balloon opens his coat to reveal a paper heart glued to his chest, then releases his balloon.]
