Fools Rush In

But Alex doesn't see Isabel again until three months later, when he learns she is pregnant. On a whim and prayer, he proposes.

Santa. Santa.

Greetings.

There's a face I haven't seen lately.

How are you, Alex? How was Miami?

Great! We opened the doors

last Saturday.

I hope you packed your snowshoes.

J.F.K. Took me three hours.

- You in town for a while?

- No. Next stop is Tokyo.

- You guys are taking over the world.

- That's the idea.

Merry Christmas!

Whoa! Am I on the right floor?

Who are you people,

and why don't you work for a living?

- Look who's back.

- Mr. "On time and under budget"!

Long time no see.

What's with the fish?

It's a key chain. What's with the party?

Don't we still design nightclubs?

Not during the holidays.

Merry Christmas, Whitman.

Sushi?

Yo, Hemingway, hold up.

Not so fast.

I see your divorce

has left you shattered.

I finally found two women

who understand my pain.

- Listen. You don't want to go in there.

- Why? What's up?

Charlie Peters just got Tokyo.

He leaves in the morning.

- You are taking over Vegas.

- No, no. I'm supposed to get Tokyo.

You do not want Tokyo.

I don't want Tokyo?

I want Las Vegas?

Listen. Everything that's famous

about Las Vegas is about leaving it!

That movie, the song, even the mob left.

What happened to Reynolds?

Just get in there!

Look. This could get me fired.

At 10:
00 this morning,

I closed a deal...

to purchase a 50,000-square-foot space

across the street from the Royalton.

If you play your cards right,

you'll come home with your sweetest gig.

The Midtown Club.

We're finally gonna do it. And guess

who will still be eating Sushi?

Charlie Peters!

We have conference rooms,

you know.

He just needed a hug, sir.

It's the holidays.

They're just so hard.

Excuse me.

I'm afraid I'm gonna need you

in Vegas.

Vegas? Did you say, Vegas?

That's my favorite city

in the world.

It's a family business.

Everybody tried to steal this guy.

- You're wasting your time.

- That's why I want him.

Great week, guys.

Thanks for the hustle.

Here are your keys. Your furniture's in.

I got you groceries.

Are you sure you wouldn't be happier

at one of the hotels?

Too many distractions.

Hot! Hot!

It's January, for Christ's sake!

Chuy, I'm not ready for marriage.

I love you,

but I don't love you like that.

So I really think

we should see other people.

What do you think?

Lose the part about seeing other people?

Yeah, I think you're right.

Yes, I'm sure! My great grandmother

said I should wait for a sign.

Remember that necklace that he got me

for Christmas? It broke.

I gotta pee. I'II tell you everything

when I get home.

Lanie, I haven't stopped since Nogales.

I gotta go. Bye.

- Excuse me. I was here.

- I think I would've noticed that.

No! You see, I was on the phone,

and the line moved.

But I couldn't move with it because

the cord wouldn't stretch that far.

I'd like to believe you,

but your nose is actually growing.

Come on. I thought

that was pretty good.

You realize

that I could die for this.

I pee really fast.

I live with five brothers,

three cousins and only one bathroom.

Believe me, I can pee faster

than anybody in the world.

Really? A gold medalist.

This I have to see.

Thank you.

I was just about to say that.

I told him to stop being a pig

in front of our new priest.

That's Father Alex to you.

I'm Isabel.

So all that on the phone,

that waiting for a sign stuff?

Is that a religious thing

or a cultural thing?

Do you always listen

to other people's conversations?

- Like to go to the end of the line?

- Why do you want to know?

It just sounded a little deep for...

It just sounded a little deep

for a Friday night. I was curious.
