Catch and Release

Synopsis: After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam, hyper-responsible Dennis, and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz, an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.

- And I'm just saying

there are hundreds,

thousands of really good reasons

my homeboy wouldn't have wanted to tell

everyone his dad left him a million bucks.

Like what?

Well, like, maybe he was afraid that

he'd become some kind of lazy dilettante

if he had all that money at his access,

so he just put it away, just ignore it.

But, hello! Come on!

Like he wasn't going to tell you?

I mean, I bet you he was just waiting to,

like, rock you with a big surprise.

Because that was Grady's style.

He never did something small.

It was just, plow! And, suddenly, he would

want to find a way to just spring it on you.

You know? Like...

On your wedding night.

- You think so?

- Oh, God, yes!

Picture this.

You guys are on the honeymoon. Okay?

You just had hours upon hours of sex,

without me or Dennis in the house

for a change.

And you're falling asleep

in one another's arms, cozying up to you.

And he's like, "Um, Geege,

"remember the part of the vows

where we said, 'For richer or for poorer'?

"We're the former!"

God, he would have loved doing that.

He would have.

Whoa. Running low, I see.

Gray, I'm going to take your last beer.

"Loss and possession,

death and life are one.

"There falls no shadow

where there shines no sun."

Hilaire Belloc.

Who's that?

I don't know, but it's an excellent quote

I put on the Red Zinger box.

Thought it was appropriate. Shall we?

Oh, that's it, dude. I am so getting married.

This chick made out

like it was her bar mitzvah.

- Oh, God. Put it back, Sammy.

- Why, dude? She's got, like, six of them.

Yeah. She's got, like, six of them.

Thank you.

Why you got to be like that?

I'm just trying to feather our nest.

You're just trying to feather your stomach.

You know what? That was hateful.

You're such a blatant sizeist sometimes.
