Synopsis: No sooner does Italian-American widow Loretta (Cher) accept a marriage proposal from her doltish boyfriend, Johnny (Danny Aiello), than she finds herself falling for his younger brother, Ronny (Nicolas Cage).

INT. ROBERT'S DRY CLEANERS - DAY - MORE CREDITS ROLL

We are looking at a wall of dry-cleaned clothes bags. They

are hanging from an automated grid. As we watch, the wall

starts to move off to the left. A gap appears where no clothes

are hung. The gap creates visual frame. In the frame is

ROBERT. He is operating the grid with a little stick shift.

He stops it and takes down a garment. He leaves the frame,

heading off to the counter. When he moves away, WE SEE that

Loretta is behind him, working her calculator, entering in a

ledger. She slams the ledger shut, waves goodbye, and goes.

After beat she reappears, produces Conti's tie, says something

to Robert, who is out of view, leaves the tie, and

unskinned.

INT. A FLORIST SHOP - DAY

A long white box is being filled with red roses. We HEAR the

FLORIST'S VOICE.
