Beautiful Girls

Synopsis: New York based jazz pianist Willie Conway heads back to his small hometown of Knights Ridge, Massachusetts for a high school reunion. The trip is as much to go to the reunion and see his old friends - none of whom left Knights Ridge after graduation - as it is to get away from his current life, at which he is at a crossroads both personally and professionally. He is just eking out a living with his piano playing gigs, and as such he is thinking about taking a sales job. He's also not sure if he's ready to marry his long time girlfriend, lawyer Tracy Stover. Most of Willie's Knights Ridge blue collar friends' best days were in high school, they still having that "trophy" mentality of girlfriends and wives. Only Michael "Mo" Morris is happily married with a family. Paul Kirkwood, whose room is plastered with magazine pictures of models, wants his waitress ex-girlfriend Jan back only because he knows now that he can't have her. And Tommy "Birdman" Rowland, who was the big man in high scho

Nice playing, Will.

Thanks.

How you getting up there?

- Going by bus.

- How long's that?

It's... five, six hours.

- How about some food?

- No, I'm good. I'll see you.

- One to Knight's Ridge.

- One-way or round trip?

- One-way. How much is that?

- $48.

There you go.

OK. Gate 62. That way and turn right.

Have a good trip.

That's it.

Oh, shit.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- Here you go.

- Thanks.

No 'buca. What's the matter?

No Sambuca this time?

- It's five in the morning, Kev.

- Is that too late or too early?

You guys done for the night?

- Yeah.

- Big storm.

- I didn't have any styrofoam.

- That's OK. I'll bring 'em back.

- OK.

- OK.

- Bye, Kev.

- Yeah.

- I'll see you.

- Bye.

- What?

- The styrofoam thing creases me.

- What are you talking about?

- First storm,

some styrofoam cups for, like, $1.99.

- Shut your fucking hole.

- The chick's married, Tommy.

- No shit.

- She's not home.

- Where is she?

- Banging that guy.

- Buddy, she's sleeping.

I'll bet $20 she's banging that guy.

- Bad bet.

- Bad bet? Why?

Either way, you lose.

If you win, she's bangin' him.

If you lose, you lose 20 bucks.

Not a smart bet.

- I can't believe her.

- You really think she is?

- I know.

- The meat cutter?

Yes. The fucking meat cutter.

What future can she have?

He cuts meat!

- You plough snow.

- At least meat you can eat.

- Why is he here?

- He's an employee.

All right. I'm outta here.

I'll see you at home.

- Don't go by Jan's.

- I'm not.

- Hey.

- You sand my lots?

- Yeah. Don't go by there.

- I'm not. Just get my lots.

- He's going by there.

- Without a doubt.

- Do I got anything in my 'stache?

- You're clean.

Willie!

- Willie!

cute.

- Yeah. You still seeing that chick?

- What do you mean by seeing?

- You're not engaged?

- No.

Well, it's been... what, a year?

- Depends what you mean by pressure.

Hey, kids.
