Fools Rush In

Religion is a very important part

of our culture...

at least in my family.

I believe that your destiny

has already been decided.

You just have to read the signs.

You don't believe that?

No. I think if a guy gets hit by a bus,

it's because he wasn't looking...

not because of some master plan.

You don't think it was fate...

you were standing in this line

when I got off the phone?

Fate? No. I think it was more

of a bladder thing.

Oh, that's too bad.

Because, you see, I happen

to think there's an explanation...

beyond reason, beyond all logic...

that brought you

right to this very spot...

at the exact same time...

that I showed up

at this very spot.

You do?


And why would fate go

to all that trouble?

So that I wouldn't have

to wait in line.


Thank you. All right.


We got the meeting with Tracy Verna.

It's set. 5:
30 at your place.

Alcoholic Beverage Commission?

- Any idea the power this woman abuses?

- Jeff, who are you talking to?

I know how important she is.

She sounded blonde.

Audibly blonde.

She's married to the County Supervisor.

Do not hit on this woman.

- I'll pick up some wine.

- Do not hit on this woman.

- I'll make it expensive.

- He's gonna hit on the woman.

Whoa. Incoming.

It's a long story.

Hi. I'm looking for Alex.

You know, he just ducked out.

Shoot! I thought I might catch him.

We've been trading calls for months now,

but he's always so busy.

Come on in. Want to leave him a note?

There's a pad on his desk.

- No, that's okay.

- Sure?

I'm Catherine Stewart.

Our families are very old friends.

- Alex, they need you on-site.

- He went to the store.

- His car's outside.

- He took a bulldozer, okay, Donna?

- He's always in three places at once.

- That is our Alex.
