And So It Goes

Synopsis: Oren Little has turned his back on all his neighbors and shunned the notion of being kind to others after the death of his wife. Next door neighbor Leah has put her soul, and her tears, into her stagnant singing career after the death of her husband. But then Oren's son shows up needing Oren to take care of his daughter Sarah. Oren has no patience for children, Leah never had any of her own, but 9-year-old Sarah just might be the spark that allows these two lonely souls to turn their home into a Little Shangri-La.

- Well I...

- Oh, everyone?

And we're calling again tomorrow

to tell her how rude

and selfish you are.

So I got a dick in my face,

right, somehow I'm to blame.

He said dick!

- Okay...

- You called the manager on me, huh?

Yeah, a number of times actually.

Well during one of those times

did she happen to mention

that I own this building.

- You own...

- Little Shangri-la.



Something to think about the next

time you get an itch to rat me out.

Look, I don't care

if you do own the building.

My wife is going to give birth soon.

Yesterday we had to park

a block away

because you refuse to move

your car just a few feet.

Please share the drive way.

- Or what?

- Or nothing.

I'm asking as a favor.

You need to have

a little compassion. Okay?

Sorry about my dick.


My wife died of cancer.

For two years, I bathed her,

I changed her...

I cooked for her. I fed her.

I even prayed for her.

And I cried all

I'm ever going to cry.

I had compassion.

- Claire.

- Oren.

- Good morning, Oren. Today at noon?

- Wouldn't miss it, Teddy.

The house is not worth 8 million.

And it's 'Ted.'

8.6 million, Teddy.

- How long have you been in the business?

- Seven years.

- Everyday is better than the last.

- Don't be a smart ass.

We've been here since your

Grandfather started this business

44 years ago. So where do you get

the gall to second guess

- the listing of an Oren Little?

- I don't have gall, Grandma.

I have comps. And they

don't support an 8 million...

Excuse me,

an 8.6 million dollar list price.

When he was a baby, he used to play

with his willy

like it was a rambunctious puppy.

All I need is just one last sale

before I cast my line in the river.

And if he can help me,

I'll play with his willy.
