Autumn in New York

Synopsis: Forty-eight year old Will Keane is a successful restaurateur and serial womanizer, his reputation generally preceding him. When he is introduced to twenty-two year old Charlotte Fielding by Charlotte's grandmother, Will's old friend Dolly who he has not seen in years, there is a mutual but slow to acknowledge attraction. After their first date, Will and Charlotte agree that their relationship will never progress to one of a long term standing, but for different reasons: while this is Will's somewhat standard modus operandi, Charlotte announces that she has a terminal heart condition. Charlotte's admission makes Will look at this relationship differently, he being told by his best friend John that if he is going to continue to date Charlotte that he better treat her well. Their relationship does end up being different than both expect, for Charlotte which could mean a change from her current "let me die in peace" attitude to want to fight for her life. And Will's time with Charlotte is

Sorry. Are you alright?

I'm getting my radar fiixed Monday.

- You live in New York?

- I do.

- There you are! I didn't see you there.

- You are shameless.

- That woman was 6 months pregnant.

- Which is the reason I flirted with her.

It made her day.

It made her feel really good.

- So, it was out ofcompassion, right?

- I'm working on it.

- Good, good. What about the other woman?

- Blind.

- Blind.

- Blind... like love.

Let's go for a ride. Why, you're afraid

you're gonna pull a muscle?

No? Come, lets ride the lake.

It'll be fun.

- I can't. I'm breaking up with you.

- So, do it in the boat.

No.

What's the matter?

My God, you're serious.

It's got nothing to do with you.

- Really?

- Really.

I can only offer you what we've got...

right now... just this.

Until it's over. And it will be over.

I could've put offtelling you

but it wouldn't be fair...

I don't understand this.

How can you be so sure?

It's only been a few weeks!

Feelings change. Situations evolve.

You don't even really know me.

Maybe not. But I know me.

I'm sorry.

I'm looking to see a Chilean Sea Bass.

- It's not on the sideboard?

- No. I see no Bass.

I'm gonna kill that son-of-a-bitch!

Fakir! Did you move my fiish?

I'm talking to you.

Did you move my fiish?

Could it be this one lying here

disguised as an Artic Char?

Artic Char! The other son-of-a-bitch,

Gluckman, who calls himselfthe fiish man.

- Boss, I'm getting pissed.

- I validate that emotion. Netto? Problem!

- Yes, boss.

- Bouillabaisse?

- In there 20 minutes.

- This pot is empty.

- This pot is bouillabaisse-less.

- Fakir! What did I tell you?

- You got a minute, boss?

- Yeah. Where'd it go?

- Taste it.

- Tumeric.

- No tumeric!

- How much? Three or four?

- Four.

- You're right. Perfect. Congratulations!

Excuse me? I'm here to meet Will.

Ofcourse.

I know, I got it, I got it.

What happened to Lynn?

I believe I baked that cake.

Light up the oven. There's

a fresh bowl of batter at the door.

I'm an easy-going guy, right?

I'm good to my staff. I treat them well.

Is that a mistake?

Because, an occasion, one ofthem has

stepped over the line and said very...

- familiar things about my private life.

- If I didn'tfeel like...

I was leading these poor

women to the slaughter...

- So, warning you has no effect?

- No. It's like a Greek tragedy, isn't it?

Guys, I've got bad news.

I'm kicking you out...

so other people may eat.

Here are your checks.

The good news is the bar drinks

are on me. Tommy?

- You got it.

- Thanks.

Lady, what am I gonna do with you?

You're killing me.

- Us? Come on!

- How about I set you up out on the patio?

- Out on the patio?

- Before my bartender leaves his wife.

- I was divorcing her anyway.

- Restrain yourself, Tommy.

Eriko...

- Are you too busy?

- It's frantic tonight, a madhouse.

- Can you bear with me 2 minutes?

- Sure.

Alright, I'll be back.

We got the heat going now. Billy? The

heat's gonna be up all the way around?

I got this and the champagne

is coming in any second.

Happy Birthday toyou...

Happy Birthday to dear Charlote...

Happy Birthday toyou...

Everything okay?

I'll come back later.

- Finally. I'm sorry. You alright?

- Is that Will Keane? It sure is.

He hasn't changed a bit. What did you

do, make a deal with the devil?

- I'm sorry, do...

- Come on. It's Dolores Talridge.

- Dolly? I can't believe it...

- Be careful ofthe cocktail.

- Oh my God...

- I know.

- Time has kicked my ass a little.

- No, don't be silly. You look wonderful.

Will... spare me the bullshit.

Honey, are you feeling alright?
