Love Happens

Synopsis: Burke is a motivational speaker whose book about dealing with grief is a best seller. His wife died in a car accident three years ago. He's in Seattle to lead a week-long workshop on healing and to negotiate a major multi-media deal. But something's amiss: he's a closet drinker, he won't ride elevators, his moods swing, he's estranged from his wife's father, and he's very much alone. In a hotel hallway, he bumps into a woman arranging flowers, tries to chat with her, and gets the brush-off. She's Eloise, a local florist who's just broken up with a boyfriend. He's persistent and they eventually go to dinner - it goes badly. What's blocking Burke? Can the physician heal himself.

I got what I needed.

Great! Fantastic. N ice

to meet you, Jessica.

N ice to meet you.

You take care.

Thanks.

This way, guys.

Follow Burke.

All right, everybody.

Those of you who signed up

for the morning work group,

you're in for a treat.

Let's go! Let's go!

Come out in the middle here.

Excuse us.

Thank you.

Excuse us for a second.

Sorry. Come on out here.

Come on, everybody out.

I want you to take

a moment and look around

and tell me what you see

and what you hear.

Okay? All right.

Okay.

Wow. Little bit different

up here, isn't it?

And yet, it's the same.

We haven't gone anywhere.

We're just looking at things

from a new perspective.

Inside of each of you, there are

sirens, honking horns and gridlock,

but there's also this.

We just have to do the work

and climb the stairs

to find it.

You have the reporter at noon and

I think you're gonna like her a lot.

Look, I don't

really give a rat's ass

what your

cancellation policy is.

I am leaving and

I want my money back.

Sir, it's not that simple.

I'll be right back.

Our cancellation

policy clearly...

Hi. Becky? What seems

to be the trouble here?

Mr. Ryan, this gentleman

is refusing to adhere...

Thank you.

Hi. I'm Burke.

You are?

Walter Mayfield.

Walter. Where you from?

from Billings.

Montana.

That's quite a drive.

Yeah. Look, I don't think
