- Excuse me.

- Yes? Hi.

I have to get out of here.

How do I get back?

You just got here, hon.

You haven't been processed.

You'll get back. It just

takes a little while.

- Wait at the end of the line, please.

- Uh, look, you don't understand.

I have to get back to my wife.

She's pregnant.

And my best friend, Philip...

he'll be lost without me.

And my job. I'll lose my job, my

dinner reservations, my life.

We understand those

things here. We really do.

Come with me.

Thanks. I've been feeling

very strange lately.

What do you expect? Your body's a cream

sauce all over Wisconsin Avenue!

Here it is, end of the line. Thank

you very much, and please wait.

How are you doing? Fine?


- No, no, no. You're making a scene.

- Cori...!

All right, all right!

Come with me.

Good. Just one more thing...


Here's your shot. Hold still.


Omar? Omar!

Hopeless case of attachment.

- They'll take care of you here.

- Thanks. Thanks a lot.

I need to go to Washington DC.

That's in North America.

I know where Washington is,

thank you. Boy or a girl?

- What's that?

- You want to be reborn a boy or a girl?

I don't want to be reborn at all.

I want to go home now, just as I am.

That's impossible. You're

between bodies right now.

Look, you're a soul, a spirit. The

only way to get back is to be reborn.

- You got a problem with that?

- I guess not.

- As I was saying, boy or girl?

- Boy.

- OK, there's an Eskimo woman giving birth...

- No, I don't want to be an Eskimo.

Son of an African chief. You'll

inherit ten wives on your 16th...

No! No, I have a wife.

OK. Uh, here's an

interesting situation.

Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills.

- Great location.

- No. East coast, OK? East coast.

Pool or trust fund?! We can get

you there in three months.
