The Architect

Synopsis: When a couple sets out to build their dream house, they enlist the services of a visionary modernist architect, whose soaring ideas are matched only by his ego.

- Drew, we need to settle down,

overcome our emotions,

and make a sensible

home-purchase decision.

You know, a house

is like a marriage, right?

You can't just jump in.

And you can't just jump out

if you want to unload it.

You're stuck with that decision

for a very long time...


- It is like a marriage.

You do go by intuition.

It's not something

you can analyze.

- Intuition is a feeling.

You don't base

big decisions on feelings.

- You said it was

like a marriage.

- Yeah, marriage is

the biggest decision of all.

You don't base that

on just mere feelings.

- Have you seen

our warming drawer?

- Ooh.

- Mm-mm.

- I like the way

they did that recessed

rectangle in the ceiling

and the way it was lit up.

- Oh, that just killed me.

Here they have

a classic mid-century modern,

and they remove

all the original fixtures

and replace them

with recessed cans.

- I like recessed cans.

They work.

They're bright.

You can see.

- You can see too much.

- I'm ovulating.

- What?

- I'm ovulating.

- Right now?

How can you possibly tell?

- Well, you just can.

I know my body.

I don't want to go into details,

but, you know...


- Oh.

I paddled 11 miles today.

I'm totally exhausted.

- Why do you always have

to go so far?

- That's not that far.

I mean, I'll do

16 or 17 next time.

You c... you can't expect me

to turn on

like a faucet, you know.

At least try to seduce me

a little.

- Batten down

the hatches, Seattleites.

We've got a big storm system

blowing in from the west,

a bit of lightning and thunder

with wind gusts expected

to get 60 miles per hour.

- Aren't you a little


- It's Saturday.

- You look like a little boy.

- Who do I have to impress?

The broker works for us.

- What about me?
