In order get loan sharks off his back, he must finish his novel in 30 days or wind up dead. To help him complete his manuscript he hires stenographer Emma.

in the bottom of the ninth.

- I hadn't eaten lunch that...

- I have to go.

Please, wait a second. I need your help.

Unhand me!

- Did you say, "Unhand me"?

- I won't be taken advantage of.

Miss Dinsmore, I had no intention...

Then why did you ask my company

to send me up here?

Because you're not fooling anyone,

Mr. Sheldon, if that's even your real name.

This is clearly not the law office of Polk,

Taylor, Fillmore, Pierce, Van Buren...

who just happen to have been presidents

of the United States.

You're right. This isn't a law office,

and yes, indeed, they were presidents.

Yes, so what other conclusion

- Yes, we could, and in fact, we have.

I'm sorry. It's just that I really

need your help, Miss Dinsmore.

- You see, I'm a brilliant novelist...

I don't intend on spending my time in the

personal apartment of a desperate man.

You want sex, Mr. Sheldon,

you are barking up the wrong body.

Miss Dinsmore, I know my veracity

has been called into question...

but I swear to God that barking up your

body is the furthest thing from my mind.

Well, I don't believe you.

Right now, I can't think of any woman

I'm less interested in going to bed with.

- Nice meeting you.

- What was that supposed to mean?

I only meant that while I'm sure

many men would be thrilled...

to find themselves in bed with

such a forthright woman as yourself...

I just have different tastes, that's all.

I prefer women that are more...
