Synopsis: In this dark, gritty, mean-spirited, but well-made comedy-drama, Veronica (Sandra Oh) is an superficial, entitled housewife dealing with her home life. Ashley (Anne Heche) is a self-obsessed, misanthropic, artist dealing with her career and her life partner Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) who wants to raise a baby. Veronica and Ashely's paths cross at a party hosted by Veronica's husband, which the two cynical woman's long-buried rivalry comes to the surface which leads to a brutal cat-fight where Veronica ends up in the hospital in a coma. After two years, Veronica emerges from her coma to learn that both her husband and teenage son are dead, and she is broke with no friends or family. On the other hand, Ashley has become a successful and wealthy artist now married to Lisa. Veronica blames Ashley for her downfall, and after another confrontation which leads to another savage cat-fight in a vacant lot, Ashley is the one to end up in a coma and is revived after two years to find her own world

- Now as you know,

the election results are in

and as predicted,

senator Gary hubs

is our new president elect.

President hubs says that

the first thing on his agenda

is going to be waging a new

war in the middle east.

And I have to admit that

maybe it's the right way to go.

The threat of terrorism looms

larger than ever in America.

In fact, this week,

homeland security

updated the color-coded

warning system

that the bush administration

created after 9/11.

The old warning levels





And severe.

Now, the updated warning

levels are going to be:

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

Be freaking terrified.

Sh*t's about to hit the fan.

And you know what,

you're pretty much f***ed.

Anyway, enough of

this political nonsense,

let's bring out

the fart machine.


- Oh man.

- Why are you watching this?

- I don't know.

It's funny.

- Why are you drawing that?

- I don't know.

- I don't know either

but it worries me.


What are you doing?

- Oh, I'm sorry Mrs. salt.

- How many glasses

is that for you?

- One.

- Two.

- It's three.

- Whatever.

Jesus drank wine.

- Carl says we're this close

to landing a deal.

Do you know what

that would mean?

A government contract in

the middle east during a war?

- That's great, honey.

Kip, eat your food.

- Well, I think

the war is wrong.

- Yeah? Well,

regardless of what you think,

it's going to happen.

And somebody's got to be

there to clean up the mess.

And what is this?

What are you doing with this?

You've got to

stop it with this.

- I don't know why

he's doing that.

- A deer?

- Sally.

Hey, Sally.

- Yeah?

- What are you doing?

- What are you doing?

- I'm taking a break.

- Well, your break's over,

come over and look at this.

Now, what do you think

of when you look at that?

- The second world war?

- Really?

- Why does it

make you think of that?

- It makes me think of the

worst thing I can imagine.

And that would be the holocaust.

- Isn't every war a holocaust?

- Yeah, that's true.

- Do you want to see

what I'm working on?

- No.

- Do you think it

needs more red?

- I think I read somewhere

that the color red

evokes a sense of anxiety

in the spectator.

- Yes, so?

- So, if somebody

was going to buy this

and hang it up on their wall,

they might not

be able to relax.

- So what,

painters shouldn't use red

so the whole f***ing world

can relax more?

- Well, wouldn't the world

be a better place

if we could all just relax?

- Sally,

get me another bottle of red.

- Goodnight, kippie.

- Goodnight, mom.

- Mmm, messy boy.

Mess, mess, mess.

- Sorry.

- Why do you have the need

to draw this stuff?

- It's fun.

- Not really.

Drawing is something

you do in kindergarten

to get out of your system.

You need to stop.

- Lots of people do it

for a living though.

- Not really.

Not if you want to be

taken seriously.

Art isn't a real thing, kip.

- What do you mean?

- Well, I had a friend

in college who painted...

- Was she good?

- She thought she was.

God, she was so

full of herself.

- Maybe I could go

to art school some day.

- Well, I will support

whatever you want to do.

As long as it means

going to Yale

and studying in the

financial sector.

- Goodnight, kip.

- Goodnight, dad.

- Come on, honey.

Let him sleep.

He's too big to get tucked in.

- I'm not tucking him in.

I'm just hanging out.

It's cool to hang out

with your mom, isn't it kip?

- Sure.

- Sweetheart, you can be

anything you want, okay?

Just don't be, you know....


- Let's go.

- Oh my god.

You know what?
