Friends with Money

Synopsis: Four women friends: three are wealthy and married plus there's Olivia, a former teacher who's now a maid. The marriages are in various states of health: Franny and Matt are happy and very rich. Christine and David write screenplays together, are remodeling their house, and argue. Jane is angry all the time and Aaron, who's an attentive husband, strikes everyone as gay. Franny sets up Olivia with a friend of hers, Mike, a personal trainer, and Olivia takes him with her to a couple of housecleaning jobs. A benefit dinner for ALS, an awkward guy named Marty whose place Olivia cleans, and a French maid's outfit figure in the story. Is there more to life than its problems?

-Like what?

-Like their drawers and shit.


Good, because that would be

really fucked up.

Excuse me. I'll be right back.

-He still smokes?

-He didn't quit.

-How can you stand it?

-Well, he doesn't make me smoke.

-Does it scare you?

-Or disgust you?

You know, there's a Tse sample sale

on next week if anyone wants to go.

-Tse what?

-Tse cashmere.

Can't afford that.

-Oh, fast.

-They wouldn't let me smoke out there.

They're so uptight.

Anyway, I'd like to make

a toast very much.

To Jane.

You're wonderful

and generous and talented...

-...and have always been there for me.

-Happy birthday.

I don't know what I'd do

without you guys.

I think about what my days would

be like without you as friends...

...and I would just wanna die.

-We love you.

-Happy birthday, sweetie.

What did you get her?


-Good taste, Aaron.

-You like it?

He's so gay.

Every time we see them

you say that.

It's like a person's sitting there...

...with a tree growing out of his head,

and nobody says anything.

I don't know.

It seems like he loves her.

So tell me what you don't get

about SpongeBob.


-Come on.

-I'm giving you the opportunity.

-I'll pass.

Well, where else are they

gonna put their money?

I don't know. Hungry people. Us.

We've got money...

...and you know what?

We don't give it to hungry people.

Not that kind of money.

And, yes, we do give money away.

We gave away

a lot of money last year.

That's true.

But, you know, they probably do too.

-Jesus, poor Olivia.


She's the only one not married.


-Is a pothead. Is a maid.

She doesn't look unhappy,

so maybe....

Christine and David

have not had sex in almost a year.

Did you know that she has never

actually seen his asshole?
