Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Synopsis: Peter is a composer and a likable sad sack who's devastated when his girlfriend of five years, Sarah Marshall, the star of a cheesy CSI-style crime show, dumps him. He weeps, he rails, he mopes. Finally, his step-brother Brian suggests Hawaii, so Peter heads for a resort on Oahu where, as he's checking in, he sees Sarah and her new beau, Aldous, a polymorphously perverse English rocker. The weeping and moping start again, until Peter is rescued by Rachel, a thoughtful hotel clerk who invites him to a luau and to hang out. Although he constantly runs into Sarah and Aldous, Peter starts to come alive again. Will Sarah realize what she's lost, and what about Rachel?

- And this isn't your jurisdiction.- I just made it my jurisdiction.

Can you say "catfight"?

Off-screen, Sarah cosies up

to her successful composer boyfriend,Peter Bretter.

He's no household name,

yet Bretter's dark and ominous score hasset the tone for this gruesome juggernaut.

Take a look.

What do you think?

I think it's gonna be hardfor her to re-enter the pageant

without a face.

Looks like the sky's the limitfor this adorable couple.

Anything could happen.

We got to do somethingWe got to do something

Before Mother Earth gets any more hurt

We got to do something

We leave you tonight with the newestsmash single from Infant Sorrow.

Lead singer and notorious lothario,Aldous Snow, begs us to change

in his environmental anthem,We've Got to Do Something.

I hope, for once, we all hear the message.Good night.

Mr Prime Minister and Mr PresidentYou better see that it's not only me

No, a mob is rising in sizeAnd they've been dying to scream

I didn't realise thatyou were gonna be back so early.

Great. I'll see you in a bit.

Okay, bye.

It's time to do something

Someone should do somethingWe got to do something

And that someone is you and youAnd you and you

I pray it ain't all lost and gone

I pray we might learn right from wrong

And I pray this broken daywill not last too long

Are you breaking up with me?

Please don't go.

Why don't you just put on some clothes,and we can sit down and discuss this.

No. I can't do anything right now.

I'm so sorry, Pete.

I'm in love with you.

Why don't you justput some clothes on, okay?

I'm not going to go put clothes on.

I know what that means,if I put clothes on, it's over. Okay?

Excuse me.

Let's talk. Let's talk about him.

for a long timethat we've been growing apart.

We're leading different lives.

Who's the dude?

No, that's not what this is about.There's no one else.

I know what's happening here. I really do.

You've been working so much lately, that wehaven't got to spend much time together,

and you're forgettingwhat it's like to be with me.

But maybe, if we just held each otheror something,

you would rememberwhat it's like to be with me.

- No.- Just hold me.

Please. Here we go.

There's someone else.

I'm sorry.

We don't hang out in places like this,Liz and I.

Why did you take me here?This place smells like stripper's perfume.
