David marks.

Dad, david.


How am I gonna do that?

I got on the tuxedo.

Can't we just

call a plumber?

Yeah right,

why would we do that?

That doesn't make any sense.

Why would you send a plumber

to do a plumber's job, huh?

- ( car door opens )

- ( groans )

What are you

looking at, huh?

( knocks )


Oh. Hi.


I've forgotten

why I'm here.

I was gonna make

some coffee.

- Excuse me?

- Do you want coffee?

I was gonna make some.

No thank you.

Am I keeping you

from something?


But it's something

I'm dreading.

Hey, do you have

You know?

I mean--

I'm not a plumber.

I mean, as you

might have guessed.

And I can't get a plumber

in here until Monday.

So, uh...

I guess what I've done

Is, uh...

Do you want help

with that?


Uh, anyway, so I guess

what I did was

Come out here to tell you

that you have a leak

And, uh,

That you should get it fixed.

You smell good.

You're gonna be late.


I'm always late.

You could always

blame me.

Hi, david marks.

Sir, right this way.

- Oh god.

- Oh look, there.

- Here, take this.

- Go easy on him.

Okay, I don't

have to tell you--

just ignore him

And I apologize

for anythinge says

Between now

and the time we leave.


Always late.

Anybody who didn't

know you would think

you were a busy man.

Oh, I see you brought

a friend.

- Katie.

Oh, katherine mccarthy.

Well, what a lovely

young woman you are.

You've even managed to make

my vagabond son look handsome.

He is handsome.

from new york.

And I didn't

My father had a vision

for times square

And he passed it on to me.

Where there are peep shows

I see broadway theaters

restored to their former glory.

And where there are

dilapidated hotels,

I see gleaming

office towers
