And in that area,

We feel we're extremely

well positioned.

The governments involved

Have already passed some

friendly legislation, so...

Sounds risky.

Well, there's always risk,

Mr. Bayard,

But we've got a seasoned

management team in place,

An asset-liability ratio

in excess of 3.5 to 1,

No long-term debt.

We feel confident

that this

Is a great opportunity

for you.

We'd love to include you

as a major investor.

Simon must have a lot

of confidence in you

To put you

on a deal this big.

When did you

make VP?

Two weeks ago.

But it's because this is

my first major deal

That I know it

in and out

And breathe it,

sleep it, eat it.

Um, if you'd like

to go over

The cost-benefit analysis

one more time-

No, that won't be

necessary, Ms. Walker.

If all this

checks out...

I'm in.

You're in.



Really? That's-

That's wonderful.

Really. Well...

I'll send you the paperwork

first thing,

And if you have

any questions-

Excuse me.

Ms. Walker, a Mr. Sims

is on the phone for you.


Yeah, David?

Lisa, sorry

to bother you,

But I got a call from

a doctor in Pittsburgh


a death certificate

For someone named

Stanley Krasne.

Apparently, he has you

listed as next of kin.

Do you know anything

about this?

I'm sorry.

I can't talk right now.

Can I call you later?

Of course.



all right?

Yes. I'm sorry.

I, uh, I better hurry

To catch that last flight

out of Heathrow.

It's a pleasure doing business

with you, Mr. Bayard.

Yes, it was.

Hey, Melville.

No, that's collateralized

Against the mortgages

on phase one.

We don't consider that

a significant factor.

12-12 million shares?

I need that by noon.

I'm going to

check with state again

And get back to you

with the new numbers.

Yeah. No problem.

Shoot me now.

Delivery for you

out at reception.

What is it?

Delivery for you

out at reception.

They'll last longer

if you put

A little 7up

in the water.

I know it sounds

weird, but it works.


Sign here.

Ok. Anywhere?

Just, uh,

right over there.

Thank you.


Enjoy them.

Oh, I will.



Hey, Danny.

Did you send me

something today?



someone sent me

some flowers.

It wouldn't have

occurred to me.

Yeah. That's

what I thought.

Danny, he's here.

Two seconds.

I got to go.

Ok. Bye.

Hi. Thanks for calling.

If you want,

you can leave a message,

But if you don't,

I'll understand.

Hi, um, it's me.

You didn't, um,

send me some flowers

You couldn't possibly

afford, did you?

Um, I'm at work.

Just call me later.


Now it looks like

It'll be four to six weeks

before we can get

Any functional

infrastructure into place.

If these numbers are right,

We're looking at 12 to 16

before going on-line.

Right. That should

do it for now.

Stay a minute?

How are you, Lisa?

I'm fine.

Good. Take the rest

of the day off.


Take tomorrow off, too.

I don't want to see

you this week.

Simon, I'm fine.

Good. You'll enjoy

the time off more.

Don't misunderstand.

This isn't some kind

of altruistic gesture.

You'll have your hands

full with this.

I want you

in top condition.

This isn't necessary.

This isn't a discussion.

If I see you here before

monday, you're fired.

Excuse me.


Late lunch?

Oh. More like

an early retirement.


Till monday morning.

Forced vacation.

My sympathies.

00 on a tuesday


What do people do?

I have to catch my breath,

they're so cute!

I know you will

love my guests today

Because they're five

Of your favorite

daytime leading men.

The terrible news is

she has 40 dog outfits,

But you don't

have a dog!

We're going to

take a break.

When we come back,

We'll talk about

how we do this show.

48 spring street,

apartment 3a.

Yes, I've got it.

We'll be there by 5:00

at the latest.

Thank you.

Rush, rush, rush.

Uh, can I help you?

Um, yeah, I hope so.

Um, I called

earlier today

About a delivery

I received.

No name on the card.

Oh, Walker, right?


Jimmy, you know anything

about a floral for Walker

That went out

this morning?

No. It wasn't me.

Wait a minute.

What am I thinking?

Today's tuesday.

Yep. He still

must be there.

"Suddenly, the boy felt

the zephyr begin to shake.

"The sound of the water

"Rushing past the hull

grew louder.

"The air filled

with spray

"As the boat sliced

through the waves.

"The bow slowly

began to lift,

"Higher and higher!

The zephyr was flying."


all right?

Oh, I'm feeling

much better.

How are you doing?

Uh, pretty good.

Lisa Walker.


I'll see you later.


How are

your flowers?

Oh, um, they're-

They're beautiful.

Um... look, I don't mean

to seem obsessive,

But your boss-

I spoke to him,

And he said that there's

no record of who sent them,

And he said maybe

you'd know something.

I mean, I have

to know, you know.


I have to, uh,

I have to be someplace.

You want

to walk with me?

There's nothing like

Hearing a story

read out loud.

She's-she's great, too.

A real natural


Do you go

to story hour a lot?

Well, I haven't been lately.

She's been sick.

Look, um...

I, uh, I did

take the order,

But to be honest

with you,

I don't feel it would be

right to tell you.

I know they're your

flowers and all,

But it seemed really

important to the person

That they stay


I'm sure if the

situation were reversed,

You'd want

the same thing.

That's not very likely.

Oh. Why?

If I wanted

to cheer someone up

By sending them flowers,

I wouldn't

make them so crazy

By not signing the card

That they couldn't

enjoy the stupid things

In the first place,

You know?

It sort of defeats

the purpose.

You're not

going to tell me?

I'm-I'm sorry.

Someone sent you flowers?

Who sent you flowers?

Listen, I'll be

at Puffy's 6:

Come drink adult beverages

with me.

Hey, how come

you're not at work?

All right. Let's

break this down.

We're running out of

people who would have...

Thank you.

Did anyone else

know about Stanley?

Maybe someone back in

Pittsburgh sent them.

No. Mm-mmm.

Not a soul.

How about

Captain Thoughtful?

Um, it wouldn't

have occurred to him.

He said that.

No, he didn't.

Danny is, uh...


You know, he's-

He's the romantic


Of a night-light.

You say that

as if that's bad.

I don't have time in my life

for anything more.

I'm a VP, remember?

Ok, so if it

wasn't Danny,

And it sure as hell

wasn't me-

It was nobody!

Somebody likes you.

Stop it.

Come on. Why not?

Your prince has

finally showed up

To sweep you

off your feet.

It's a nice fantasy.

What fantasy?

You got the flowers.

Yeah, but I live on a little

planet called reality

Where stuff like that

just doesn't happen,

And even if it did-


I'm not the sort of person

that they happen to.

It was probably

just some...

clerical error

of the floral world.


And even

if it wasn't,
