The spectator does so and reads aloud the following printed message: "If my skills are up to par this evening an attractive woman with dark hair will pick this envelope as hers. Leaving me with the green envelope as mine. I think she will in the long run be pleased with her choice."
The performer continues: "You see there is also something in the green envelope. Something I really did not want to have to give you."
The performer reaches inside the envelope and removes a folded sheet of paper. He reads out loud what it says: "I the owner of the green envelope agree to pay Luke Jermay the sum of $1000 no questions asked."
The performer rips up the I.O.U letter and throws the shreds over his shoulder taking a bow with the onstage spectator as he ends with the line: "I just couldn't live with the guilt."
