Synopsis: Six New Yorkers juggle love, friendship, and the keenly challenging specter of adulthood. Sam Wexler is a struggling writer who's having a particularly bad day. When a young boy gets separated from his family on the subway, Sam makes the questionable decision to bring the child back to his apartment and thus begins a rewarding, yet complicated, friendship. Sam's life revolves around his friends-Annie, whose self-image keeps her from commitment; Charlie and Mary Catherine, a couple whose possible move to Los Angeles tests their relationship; and Mississippi, a cabaret singer who catches Sam's eye.

I don't know if you want people

to love this guy or hate this guy.

He's kind of ambitious.

He's kind of mature.

He's kind of just kind of.

Novels are tricky, Sam.

Susan says your short stories

are wonderful.

But it seems to us

that you haven't

entirely adapted

to the longer form.

The novel requires a different kind

of commitment than the short story.

Excuse me for one second.


Hey hey!

Where are you going?


Ah. Question:
who is he?

He's just, uh...

just a kid.

Thanks for coming in.

(elevator beeps)

- Receptionist:
Bye, Rasheen.

- Bye.

- Rasheen:
Where are we going?

- Yes!

- Kidding.

We're getting you back home

and out of my hair.

You're not my responsibility.

Dude, come on.


Not cool, dude.

Not cool.

Hey, can we stop running?

I'm almost 30.

So look, you're obviously

having some family issues.

But whatever.

It's childhood. It ends.

Don't look at me like that.

You fucked... you screwed up

a very important meeting

for me back there.

I think I've been

more than accommodating.

Now come on.

We gotta get you home.

Your mom's probably

worried sick about you.

She's not my mom.

That woman on the train...

that wasn't your mom?

Were those your brothers

and sisters?

So... where's your mom?

Were you... what's going on?

Were you living with that woman?

Like in foster care?


Come on.

- I'm thirsty.

- Yeah, I know.

I'm taking you to the place

with the best water in the city.

Stay here.

Come here.

Come on.

Come on.

Good. Look cute.

Cuter. Come on.

There, that's it.


Sorry, that was loud.

Didn't mean to scr...

- are you guys open?

- No, not yet.

Can, uh, he get

a glass of water?

Yeah sure.

- So who's this?

- He's my little brother.

Not my actual brother.

I'm his big brother like...
