Synopsis: Todd is at the pinnacle of his game; a great job, great friends and more women than he knows what to do with. He owns a lounge that frequents some of the finest women and talent mid-town Chicago has to offer. Unsatisfied with his level of romantic achievements, he goes on a quest to date three women at one time. He believes the laughable exhaustion of just keeping his story straight is his only penance to pay until he finds out that all three women share a common bond and the aftermath is more than he bargained for.
Genre: Drama
Director(s): Paul D. Hannah
Production: Entertainment One

Yeah, and I'm happy to,

but for opening night only.

Shanice, you know how important

this is to me.

If I can't count on you now,

how can I count on you

when we get married?





You know, I proposed to you.

And I said no.

And I know you didn't mean it.

Baby, you proposed to me

after we dated

for less than three months.

Of course I meant it.

And now?

And now...

we are still in the process

of getting to know each other.

And I know you enough to know

you were meant for me.

Okay. Now, when we do

get married in the far,

distant, far future,

trust me, you will be able

to count on me, okay?

But for now, I mean,

I have a full-time job

and my acting career.

You're a 30-year-old

no-name, no-rsum actress

who wants to quit her job

and chase some pipe dream.

I mean, babe,

you have an amazing job, okay?

The rest of your time

should be focused

on helping me build an empire.

I mean, isn't that what

every woman dreams?

So let me get this straight.

My dreams are supposed

to be your dreams.

Yeah, pretty much.

You're crazy.

Every king needs a queen.

Todd, I have my own dreams

and aspirations,

and acting is one of them.

You know that.

Baby, if you can't be with me

in the valley

when I'm starting out,

why do I need you

when I'm on the mountaintop?

That was profound.

But really, maybe you should

deal with what's going on

right here and right now

for once.

You know what?

Come to think of it,

maybe you don't even

need me in your life.

Especially since you can't even

seem to support my dreams.

Well, I would

if they were realistic.


So you're saying your dreams

are more realistic than mine?

Obviously. I mean, I don't see

Tyler or Spielberg calling.

Wait, okay, you're overreacting.
