Music And Lyrics

Synopsis: Cheery Alex Fletcher lives comfortably in Manhattan off the residuals from his 80's pop success and reprising his hits at school reunions, theme parks, and state fairs. But those gigs are declining, so he jumps at the chance to write a song and record it with reigning teen idol Cora Corman. Trouble is, he's good at melodies but needs a lyricist and has less than a week to finish. Enter Sophie Fisher, subbing for a friend who waters Alex's plants; she's a pretty good poet, quick witted, and could do it, if she'd agree. But there's some sort of shadow over her head that Alex may not be able to charm his way past. And what if they do get a song written, what then?

Biggest star in the world.

Bigger than Britney and Christina

put together.

And guess who she loves.

Her country?

You. She's a huge PoP fan

and she wants to meet you, Alex.

Hang on, hang on.

Khan, l've missed you.

Alex, I have Sophie here for you.

That sounds like fun. Who is she?

She's here to do your plants.

But Jane does my plants.

She can be in and out in five minutes,

and this is really the best time for her.

lt seems she cannot be stopped.

Send her up.

So start again. Cora Corman....

Why do you have a plant lady?

Why do you even have plants?

Because from time to time...

...ladies accompany me

back to the apartment...

...and one once mentioned

that plants make women comfortable.

ls that true?

Plants make women comfortable?

Well, maybe if l had plants

l'd still be married.

Yes, l think that was the problem.

Not Susan's affair

and raging nymphomania...

...but your lack of vegetation.

Hang on.

-Hi, l'm Sophie Fisher.

-l'm Alex Fletcher.

-You didn't get the message from Jane?

-No. l haven't listened to my--

She was supposed to let you know

l'd be doing plants.

Very nice. Lovely. Well, come on in.

Thank you.

l hope you have your own watering can.

Jane told me that everyone had their own.

But this last guy, Mr. Werther, about 80,

he didn't have his own watering can... he starts yelling at me

and screaming at me in German:

l'm fluent enough

to know what he's saying.

You haven't been cursed at

till you've been cursed at in German.

l know what you mean.

l dated a frulein once.

Plant stuff is in the kitchen under the sink.

And l have my own can.

Oh, well, vielen Dank.

Hi, l'm Chris Riley, Alex's manager.

Oh, Sophie Fisher. Nice to meet you.

So kitchen?



So Cora Corman, huh?

How great is that? Do you believe it?
