Addicted to Love

Synopsis: Good-natured astronomer Sam is devastated when the love of his life, Linda, leaves him for a suave Frenchman named Anton. He therefore does what every other normal dumpee would do; go to New York and set up home in the abandoned building opposite his ex-girlfriend's apartment, intent on winning her back and waiting until she decides to leave her current lover. What Sam does not count on is being joined several weeks later by ultra hip tomboy Maggie, a photographer and motor-cyclist who is determined to get revenge on Anton, her ex-fiance. Hostile at first, the two of them eventually join forces in an attempt to separate the couple, and ruin Anton's life. However, complications ensue when Sam and Maggie start falling for each other.

All you are is a passing meteor shower.

You'll be gone soon enough.

I feel sorry for you, you poor bastard.

Carl, it's me, Sam.

Calm down. I'm fine.

I'm still in New York.

We're great. Linda's very happy.

We may stay a while. We're very busy.

There's lots to do.

Listen, Carl, I need you to sell my truck.

Whatever you can get for it.

I'm just a little short of cash right now.

I'm still here.

Listen, Carl,|there's something else I need...

...and Professor Wells|doesn't have to know about it.

Hey, Linda. How you doing?

You want to hear something funny?

I saw this on the news before I came out.

Fainting goats. I'm not making this up.

There's this breed of goats.

I don't know why, but...

...they faint at the slightest thing.

If they hear a loud noise|or a gun goes off...

...they black out, fall right over,|one after the other.

I thought you'd like that.

Get off.

I don't even have a chart for that.

Get over here.


Get away from here!

I'm warning you! I have a gun!

Oh, shit.

What the hell are you?

What do you want? Who are you?

Excuse me. I asked a question.

I live here. What do you want?

I asked you a question.

Don't touch that.

Get away from that.

Who the hell are you? What do you want?

They'll hear you.

What are you talking about?

Your little Goldilocks and my ex-fianc.

Hold it.

Are you saying that guy,|that thing over there...?

- What's your name?|- Mike.

- What's your name, Mike?|- Sam.

I'm Maggie.

I'll be staying here a while.

I sleep naked.|It's the only way I'm comfortable.

So don't think of it as a come-on...

...because if you so much as breathe|in my direction...

...Will nail your Willy to that beam.

Don't mess with my stuff,|don't get in my way...

...and I'm sure we'll get along fine.
