The Rebound

Synopsis: Sandy, upon discovering her husband's infidelity while watching her son's birthday video, leaves the suburbs and moves into the city. She gets an apartment that's above a coffee house where she befriends one of the workers, Aram, a guy whose wife only married him so she could get a green card. Aram's family thinks he's wasting his life and education by working in the coffee house. Soon after moving into the apartment, Sandy hires Aram to be her nanny while she takes on work for the first time since her children were born. It isn't long when Aram and Sandy find they get along wonderfully and start to date. But the question is: is their relationship real or is it, in fact, just a rebound for both of them?

-- Hot.

-- She wasn't that.

-- Sexy.

It was something else. She needed me.

Yes, to get a green card.

There's gotta be more meaning

to it than all of this.

You know living at your parents' place isn't

exactly ... grab a life by the balls you know.

I'm saving up.

I hate to tell you this but ...

you work in a coffee shop.

And your hot French wife

left you for her brother.

Stop it. / i

Can I get you something?

Yeah, this ad says...

you have an apartment for rent?

Yet, ours have a ...

Which I would be happy to show you.

-- Sure.

-- Cool.


I'm Mitchell, and this right here is Aram.

He's trying to figure out the meaning of life.

He also is a wonderful babysitter

if you ever need one.

Just a break of the apartment.

-- Hey, little guys.

-- Mama, I do not want to live here.

-- I want my room.

-- How many more apartment are we going to look at?

-- I got an apartment.

-- You're fast.

It's not great, but my husband

won't be there so that's a plus.

How are you so well adjusted?

All those years with the PTA, I don't have a choose.

How's the job search?

I got one, fact check for SNN.

You are unbelievable, you're almost fully healed.

You know everyone says what a nightmare it is to get divorced

you're bad, I feel good.

No residual or anything?

This is the best thing

that ever happened to me.

Trapped in some suburban hell, same thing

day after day like a

"hamster in a wheel.

Up on your feet, let's ride to happiness.

All you need now to

complete the healing is to get laid.

Oh no, that's one thing

I'm not ready for.

Look I don't expect you

to fall in love with this guy.

This guy?

Oh, no! What have you done?

A chiropractor, who fixed me up with

that whole elevator shaft thing.

Anyway, he smells great, and went

to an Ivy League College.
