Saffron, honey, it's Christine.

I just spoke with

their casting director.

It's not looking good.

They need more

name value, A list,

you know the bullshit.

Call me.

Okay, okay.

(muffled chatter)

It's a beast.

Might have to eighty-six

the damn door frame.

Everything looks wonderful.

The treated concrete,

the stainless,

my kitchen lights,

remote control.

Well, you don't want

to strain yourself.

You went all out for me, babe.

But this is all wrong.

Isn't it standard?

It's not forty.

It should be forty.

Amy, darling,

thirty-six is standard.

They gave you standard height.

I like to be elevated when cooking,

if you know what I mean.

Heels add four inches,

so the island has to come up by four.

Spare no detail,

spare no expense.

Do you remember, Fred?

The kitchen is my temple.

Yeah, cash-guzzling temple.

Here ya go, guy.

Come on.

I gotta go..

You know why I love you, babe?

'Cause when we went to

our first dinner at Le Gourmand,

you said you could never be

with a woman who can't cook.

And what did I say?

You said that you could

never be with someone

who didn't appreciate

a meal 'made with love'.

I'm so glad you're understanding.

So you'll get him to finish it

in three days, right'?

I got him this far, didn't I?

Dinner's at eight.

Sorry about all the noise.

Let me guess. Model?

More of a Diva, I'd say.

(phone ringing)

I need you at eight sharp,

no delays.

The integrity of the meal

can't tolerate it.

Because today

on the menu, we have...

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Surprise me, babe.

You know I know

how to do that.

Right. Can't wait.



You know, sometimes

I have to dig real deep

to find the spiritual

connection to

poached Dover Sole

over baby fennel.

Come on, you love all her

fancy chateau de chez moi meals.
