who has multiple personalities.

And one of his personalities falls in love

with one of her personalities.

That sounds really good.

It's terrible. It's full of clichs.

It has a gay, best friend personality.

It has a bitch, girlfriend personality.

It has a feisty, Hispanic personality.

It has a black, female,

detective personality.

Oh, there's even an act three

running-through-an-airport scene.

God, I love

running-through-the-airport scenes.

Okay, we gotta top that.

Put them on a bridge.

How romantic is that?

You got two people on a bridge,

maybe there's like a whole crowd

following them and cheering... and like,

- you know, maybe one guy's doing...

- Yeah, I'm not doing any of that.

- But like a slow clap, like...

- I'm not doing any of that, Scott.

Well, then you're not really

making a RomCom.

Look, if I'm gonna do this,

I just wanna write something

that shows love how it really is,

you know? Not funny, not romantic.

Okay... but that kind of

sounds like a downer.

Let me explain.

Love starts out like this...

I'm sorry, my palms get kind of sweaty.

I don't care.

I love you.

And then he threw up.

He tried to say it was food poisoning

but I haven't been able to make love

with the lights on since.

You are so beautiful.

I'm just lucky to have you.

But then quickly becomes more like this.

I work with her! What do you

want me to do, baby? Quit my job?

No, I want you to keep

eye-humping her all night!

Baby, stop!

Don't touch me with your sticky

disgusting, reptile hands!

You give away your most

personal information

only to have your secrets

come back to destroy you.

Stop being melodramatic.

Maybe if you'd hit the gym once in a while,

you wouldn't need that sob story.

No wonder he threw up.

How do I know this?
