Blind Date

Synopsis: Walter Davis is a workaholic. His attention is all to his work and very little to his personal life or appearance. Now he needs a date to take to his company's business dinner with a new important Japanese client. His brother sets him up with his wife's cousin Nadia, who is new in town and wants to socialize, but he was warned that if she gets drunk, she loses control and becomes wild. How will the date turn out - especially when they encounter Nadia's ex-boyfriend David?

"Reasonably" doesn't begin

to describe it.

I'm looking at her picture now.

She's an honest-to-God knockout.

Ted, just this once, please.

The truth.

Susie, tell Walter Nadia's pretty.

She's very pretty, Walter.

- When was the picture taken?

- Four years ago.

Four years? She could've been

disfigured in four years!

- She could've gained 100 pounds!

- She's gorgeous! Stop it!

I almost forgot!

Don't get her drunk.

She loses control completely.

But don't get her drunk. If you do...

...she loses control!

Loses her inhibitions,

or she pees on the floor?

What's "lose control" mean?

Oh, you know, she gets real wild.

She gets real wild!

All right! I may kill you later,

but I'm doing this now...

...before I change my mind.

- Walter?

- Yeah.

Come on in.

I'll just be a minute.

I hope you don't mind

helping me with my suitcase.

I'm moving out of here.

I'll be staying with a friend.

If you feel like it,

a friend's having an art exhibit.

If we have time before dinner,

maybe we could go?

Yeah, no problem.

Well, here goes, Walter. Ready or not.

Oh, damn it!

This has been going on all night.

There may be some matches over there.

Let me look.

It may be over there.


Now this is a blind date.

Here's your chance to run for it.

Your very last chance.

You missed your chance.

I'm glad.

I had no idea.

Do you know this artist?

I've met him once.

He's Susie's friend.

I mean, coming was her idea.

We can go.

- I don't have any obligation to him.

- No, come on.

We're both adults, aren't we?

I thought I was.

I don't know. Maybe I'm not now.

Can I ask you something?

Yeah, I guess so.

Why didn't you have a date tonight?

Is there something I should know?

I can't imagine why you don't

have a date every night of the week.
