Boomerang

Synopsis: Marcus is a successful advertising executive who woos and beds women almost at will. After a company merger, he finds that his new boss, the ravishing Jacqueline, is treating him in exactly the same way. Completely traumatized by this, his work goes badly downhill. But then, Jacqueline's more quietly attractive assistant, Angela, who has been dating Marcus' best friend, shows herself more than a little concerned by his perilous state.

Yeah, this is a story of famous dogs.

For the dog that

chases its tail will be dizzy.

Dog.

- Hey, you. I left somethin' on your desk.

- I've got it.

- Yo, man.

- Man, when are we gonna hang out?

We gonna hang out soon.

Slow down with that thing, Bony.

- Mornin', ladies.

- Hi, Marcus.

- So I'm here on the right. I'm like this.

- Yo, man, I'm tryin' to work.

- Hey. Whassup?

- Yo. Whassup?

- I'll see y'all at lunch.

- OK. Peace.

Good morning.

Hey, stranger, nice to see you again.

Morning, cuteness.

How you doin'? Whassup?

Morning. Morning. Morning.

- Good morning.

- Morning.

- Hey, you.

- Hello.

- Morning, Noreen.

- Good morning, Marcus.

Do me a favour and send a single

long-stemmed rose to Carrie, Tracy,

Miranda, Cassandra,

Alegra, Shirrel and Mai-Lai.

- With the usual card?

- "Thinking only of you."

Right. You have a meeting

with Lady Eloise tomorrow at nine.

- Cool.

- Nelson's waiting. And Anita called.

I forgot.

Will you get her on the phone?

- Sure.

- Thank you.

- Nelson.

- Hello, Marcus.

I can't wait to show you this.

I have recut the Kissable spot.

You recut it? But is it sexy?

Is it sexy?

It is sexational.

- I like it.

- Good.

I like the orange,

and I like the ice cream.

You gotta get rid of

the cherries and the banana.

Cherry and banana? But that's a little

Buuel, a little Dali. It's... you know.

It's too overt.

We should go a little more subtle.

- Some women might get offended.

- All right.

But I dug it. I dug it. Don't make that

"he didn't dig it" face. I dug it.

It just got a little nasty,

like you always do.

- OK.

- All right.

- Nasty Nelson.

- That's me.

Least there wasn't

no sausages in this one.

- Yeah?

- Anita on line one.

Great.

Hey, you.

Let me... Can I explain what happened?

Have you been watching the news?

You haven't been watching the news.

The big accident in midtown,

where the cabs

busted into the other cab,

it knocked into a bus

and a water main bust - I was in that.

It's on the news right now. It just

went off Channel 4, just went off.

Yeah, but I was...

No, I'm cool. I'm all right, yeah.

No, my neck's a little stiff, that's all.

Actually, a massage sounds kinda fly.

Yeah, I'm all with that. That, too.

Can I call you next week? Cool.

Later.

- What's next?

- Casting for the body lotion spot.

Tell the fellas I might be

a little late for lunch today.

Yo, man. I saw somethin'

on cable last night - freaked me.

There was this woman, right?

Baby had body.

She's lyin' there, totally naked, right?

You could see everything.

But she had a dick, man.

Fucked me up.

It was a 976 number

for hermaphrodites.

You're talkin' about 9-7-6-D-l-C-K,

Chicks With Dicks.

How could you put that in your

mental Rolodex? He's a closet freak.

- You got problems.

- You're comin' out.

- Yeah.

- No, man, I was just, you know, kiddin'.

Oh, man. That ain't regular, man.

There's a whole world out there

we don't know about.

Like the shit you read in Penthouse -

that stuff never happens to me.

Man, stuff like that never happens

to anybody, except for Marcus.

The only reason stuff like that happens

to me is I pay attention to women.

- Y'all don't pay attention to women.

- I pay attention.

- You have to study their movements.

- Get outta here.

- It's an art form.

- I can't do that, man.

- That's why you get no pussy.

- Exactly.

Tyler, there's other things

in life besides sex.

Sharing, commitment. You gotta get in

touch with your feminine side like me.

Startin' to sound a little on the soft side.

Startin' to sound soft.
