Nights in Rodanthe

Synopsis: Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her -- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teen-aged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner arrive. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

predicting that.

-What do you think?

-I'm not gonna say...

...because if I do and you say

you're gonna let him come back to you...

You gonna let him come back?

I don't know.


The storm boards

are underneath the house.

I'll figure it all out.

If they issue a warning,

just get out of here.

This place has been through

so many hurricanes...

...I wouldn't even worry about it.

Won't feel a thing.

So, what happened?

Jack get tired of that Miss Flip-Curl

he was reptiling around with?

Your best friend?

She was not my friend.

She was in my car pool.

You're my best friend.

Don't play me.


What? The kids want things

back to normal, you know?

Doing it for the children?

Which reminds me...

...when are you gonna send me

Miss Amanda so I can out-attitude her...

...and send her home right?


I wish you would. I wish you would.

Where was that man? Hmm?

Where was Jack when your father died?

Your father,

who was so good to him too.



When do the guests arrive?

Guest, meaning one. Tonight.

I thought about

closing this place down...

...but when a man calls from Raleigh

and he offers to pay double the price... my grandmama used to say,

"Count your blessings, keep on stepping. "

Which is exactly what you need to do

when it comes to Reptile Jack.

You should have married that hippie potter

with the great ass back in school.

Hell, I should have married

the hippie potter with the great ass.

-Love you.

-Be safe.

Have fun for the both of us.

Have fun yourself.




Anybody here?



Ah, you must be Mr. Flanner.

Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Ah. The wind just came up.


Let's get you signed in.

You must have taken the 3:30 ferry.

You're early.

Yeah. Yeah, I did.
