A Date with Miss Fortune

Synopsis: When Jack gets rescued by Maria, a superstitious Portuguese beauty, he has no idea that his life and luck are both about to change. During this accidental "first date", Jack and Maria project idealistic images of themselves -- images that are humorously contradicted through a series of flash-forwards to their future life together.

Jesus, you look more

disappointed than my father.

Oh no.


I didn't mean to.

Do you remember the show "My Two Dicks"?

A family comedy about a mother

and her two detective sons,

Lasted twelve episodes four years ago.

I'm afraid I'm not familiar.

Ah, don't sweat it.

Neither was anybody else.

"My Two Dicks" sucked.

That's not what you said

when you picked me up

at the diner that night!

I picked you up?!

I'm pretty sure it was

the other way around.

I was the damsel in distress.

Mmm, maybe.

I had a really good time tonight, Jack.

Good, I'm glad somebody did.

The whole evening was pretty

Are you ever serious?

I tried it once, but it just didn't take.

So uhh, it was worth it?

Yeah, maybe.

Good night, Jack.

Uhh, wait.

Do you need me to come up

and you know, fix anything?

Nothing's broken.

I could help you watch tv?

I've got twenty-twenty vision, right here.

Be a shame to waste it.

Goodnight, Jack.

You've got Tobe kidding me?

I kid you not.

Six-years-old and he

says to me, Miss Moniz,

this is the worst day of

education in my life!

And he storms out of my classroom.

I'm glad you stayed for pie.

Me too.


Can I uhh...

Can I ask you something?

You can try.

Well, when I first walked in

here, umm, you were crying.

I wasn't crying.

I have a little confession to make.

I'm not really engaged anymore.

I just broke up with my fianc

and I just, I haven't given

him back the ring yet.

I know, I know, I'm a horrible person.

You're not a horrible person, okay.

You're my hero.

I guess I was just kind a

holding on to the past.

If that makes any sense to you?

It's perfect sense.

It's like the moment you

break-up with someone,

this movie of all the good

times plays over and over

in your head, and the bad times,
