Gene and Katie fall in love as “kids.” Gene’s dad owns the drive-in at which Katie works in the concession. The title refers to Gene’s opening line to Katie. He asks her how she moves in the dust of the movies. He imagines that the pictures (on the screen above her head) need to go somewhere after they are projected, so they dissolve and fall down on her. Gene and Katie plan to get married, but Gene leaves on their wedding day. He returns one year later to find Katie at his brother’s house (she given in to his advances in a “moment of weakness”). Gene chops down a huge sign posts onto his brother’s car and house.
