All I've ever wanted is...

sparkling silverware,

beautiful crystal,..

and someone to love.

Because to love and be loved..

is the greatest gift.

Cooking is supposed to..

make you feel something.

And if it makes you feel loved,..

then that's the most important thing.

Amy, you're on in three,.. two...

There is no love as true

as the love of food.

You with me?

I like to say.. forget love,

I'd rather fall in chocolate.

Mmmm.

But, the secret to a man's heart

is not through his stomach,..

it's through his zipper.

Now, one of you

lucky audience members

is gonna join me for a meal

that will inspire you to orgasm.

Because that's what we do

on Amy's Food For Love.

(knocking)

Shit.

No solicitors, please.

I'm Detective Reynolds.

I'd like to ask you some questions.

It's about your neighbour.

I'd just like to ask a couple questions.

I'm sorry to interrupt you.

It looks like you might

be entertaining.

It's just a chocolate souffl.

It'll be ready in ten minutes.

Oh, I don't do much dessert,

doctor's orders.

I won't tell if you won't.

Mmm...

Glass of Bordeaux?

Can't drink on the job,

but thank you.

Hmm.

So, uh, your neighbour

across the way in 302.

She's, uh, come up missing.

Saffron?

She's a friend of yours?

Well, I wouldn't say

that we share secrets,

but we look out for each other.

She didn't say anything to you

to lead you to believe

she was distressed,

maybe a fight with a lover?

She seemed fine

the last time I saw her.

Uh-huh.

And when was that?

Umm...

we had dinner..

last week.

Did she have

any friends over or parties?

No, actually,

Saffron's pretty solitary.

Oh, a pretty girl like that.

And famous, I understand.

Though I don't go

to the movies much myself.

Well, like I said, I don't know much

about her private life.

This is Saffron Nelson?

Maybe. It's hard to see.

She's an actress,

so every time you see her, she's a...

different person.

So you've had no contact with her

since your dinner together?

You don't seem too concerned.

Well, how do we know

that she's missing?

Look, Miss Elwood,

maybe I should be the detective here.

I think it'll all make sense

in the grand scheme of things.

- Aah, do you mind?

- Oh.

So, last week, did you cook

for her here or did you order in?

Order in?

God, never.

Um, hmm, let's see.

Oh..

Shafer Farm's venison loin

with parsnip gratin

and onion confit.

Do you keep track of

everything you cook?

Do you keep track

of everything you ask?

I do everything I make

on a special occasion.

Are you a chef?

I'm preparing

my own cooking show.

Will you be writing up

your little cakes?

Souffl.

And I don't know

if they're special enough yet.

Would you know of any other

friends of Miss Nelson

that I could possibly call?

Honestly, detective,

I don't know if she has any.

If you think of anything,

please feel free to contact me...

personally.

Sure thing.

God, I.. I can't believe

anything's happened to her.

In the throes of passion,

who gives the most?

The man or the woman?

Not the man, that's for sure.

That's a great article,

one of her best.

Looks like she had many talents.

She was tired of acting.

That's why she wrote

the advice columns.

She was tired of being

dependent on others.

She said that to you?

In so many words.

Suicide.

Is that possible?

And how is it that a woman

who looks like that had no lovers?

She gets a lot of phone calls

but she never answers.

She changes her number

all the time.

(phone ringing)

Used to bother my fianc 'cause

you could hear it through the walls.

(phone ringing)
