The Odd Couple II

Synopsis: It has been seventeen years now since Oscar and Felix saw each other for the last time. Oscar is living in Florida, Felix in New York. One day, Oscar is called by his son Brucey who invites him to his wedding to Felix' daughter Hannah next Sunday in California. Oscar and Felix meet again at Los Angeles International Airport and take a rental car in order to go to San Malina for the wedding. The trip develops into an odyssey, starting with Oscar forgetting Felix' suitcase at the Budget station, going over to the complete loss of the directions (and the car), several difficulties with the police, a dead person, a toupee, underwear and revenge-hungry Cowboys and ending up with Felix meeting the "one and only" woman. But the wedding has to be reached on time.

It's this Sunday afternoon.

Think you can come?

Wild racehorses couldn't keep me away.

Where is it?

- At her mother's house in San Malina.

- What was the name again?

San Malina. It's about two hours

north of L.A. We'll send you the address.

If I'm not being too nosey,

who the hell are you marrying?

She's an actress. She's beautiful.

She's so talented and very smart.

- And she loves your son.

- I love her already. So who is she?

- Hold on to your hat, Pop.

- I need a hat to hold on to?

She's not one of those six foot ten

basketball players, is she?

- As long as she's thin.

- I can't hear you.

Whose daughter?


Oh, my God!

I'm sorry.


Excuse me, I wonder if I might change

my seat into the non-smoking section?

The entire plane is non-smoking.

There's no one smoking on this aircraft.

Possibly the attendants who clean

the planes at the airport

were smoking in here.

I'm very sensitive to that.

I'm sorry, but the entire plane is full.

It's not just the smoke.

The woman next to me is wearing

a perfume that I have an allergy to.

- I've already moved you once.

- That was because of hair spray.

I know that I sound crazy,

but I just happen to be one of those

hyper-allergenic cases. Can't you try?

You mean sniff every woman until you find

a perfume you're not allergic to?

I didn't complain about the food.

I didn't eat it, but I didn't complain.

You asked for the Hawaiian mahi mahi

and I told you that we only serve it

on the west to east flights.

I thought there might be one piece

of mahi mahi making the return trip.

Forget it, I'll manage.

- I have some cough lozenges, if you like.

- Thank you, no.

I have an unusually small windpipe.

If it got stuck,

I could be dead in two minutes.

Are you having trouble breathing?

Neil Simon

Marvin Neil Simon (born July 4, 1927) credited as Neil Simon, is an American playwright, screenwriter and author. He wrote more than 30 plays and nearly the same number of movie screenplays, mostly adaptations of his plays. He has received more combined Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer.Simon grew up in New York City during the Great Depression, with his parents' financial hardships affecting their marriage, giving him a mostly unhappy and unstable childhood. He often took refuge in movie theaters where he enjoyed watching the early comedians like Charlie Chaplin. After a few years in the Army Air Force Reserve, and after graduating from high school, he began writing comedy scripts for radio and some popular early television shows. Among them were Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows from 1950 (where he worked alongside other young writers including Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks and Selma Diamond), and The Phil Silvers Show, which ran from 1955 to 1959. He began writing his own plays beginning with Come Blow Your Horn (1961), which took him three years to complete and ran for 678 performances on Broadway. It was followed by two more successful plays, Barefoot in the Park (1963) and The Odd Couple (1965), for which he won a Tony Award. It made him a national celebrity and "the hottest new playwright on Broadway." During the 1960s to 1980s, he wrote both original screenplays and stage plays, with some films actually based on his plays. His style ranged from romantic comedy to farce to more serious dramatic comedy. Overall, he has garnered 17 Tony nominations and won three. During one season, he had four successful plays running on Broadway at the same time, and in 1983 became the only living playwright to have a New York theatre, the Neil Simon Theatre, named in his honor. more…
