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.

this thing is for me, okay?

Okay. You mind

if I ask why?

Well, frankly, my sister

talked me into it, and the...

You know, the whole...

And the feelings...

I understand.

I understand.

Can I ask you,

why did your sister think

it was so important

for you to come here?

My son.

And what's his name?


And when did he...

Does it really matter?

It matters to me, Walter.

I'd like to hear.

Do you have a picture?

I'm sorry.

Walter, I know how you

feel. I've been there.

My wife died.

Three years ago.

I want you to know that

you've taken the first step

just by walking through these

doors, and something inside you,

whether you know it or not,

made you drive all this way.

If you want to leave,

we'll honor your request.

I hope you don't.

Thanks, Becky.

Think about it.

Chapter two.

Happiness is a state of mind

and, like all things,

it takes practice.

Devote five minutes a day

to smiling, just smiling,

and after a while

it'll come naturally.

Sorry. I didn't mean to...

Hey, you forgot your pen!

Quidnunc? Quidnunc?

What can I get you?

I would like another

Seven-and-Seven, and a tomato juice

for my virtuous friend here.

Tomato juice.

Thank you.

So, as far as

Unicom knows,

I'm a hair away from signing

a deal with Time Warner. Okay?

I'm expecting the offer

by lunchtime tomorrow.

That means TV, radio,

publishing. All of it.

Are you as hot for me right now

as I am hot for me right now?

So hot.

And check it.

Ted Vernon, the CEO himself, is gonna

fly in for the end of the seminar.

My guess, a little warm and

fuzzy contract-inking party.

Who knows?

Your drinks, gentlemen.

Thank you.

It's a long way

from booking you gigs

writing columns

for Psychology Today, huh?

I'll get you a Learjet.

You like Learjets?
