Funny About Love

Synopsis: When Duffy Bergman, a New York cartoonist, meets Meg Lloyd, a gourmet chef, he discovers the love of his life and they marry -- yet love alone isn't enough to make them happy. Meg decides she wants to have a baby, a goal that initially makes Duffy frantic, but soon becomes his most important desire as well. When they are unable to have a baby, Meg begins concentrating on her career and the two slowly drift apart -- eventually separating. Later, when Duffy is speaking at a convention of the Delta Gamma sorority, he reveals that the Delta Gamma girls have always been his dream girls -- his Love Goddesses. There he meets the young and uninhibited Delta Gamma girl, Daphne Delillo. When Daphne moves to New York to work as a network sports reporter, their mutual attraction and Daphne's spontaneity spark an adventurous new relationship for Duffy. Now Duffy must decide which is more valuable to him -- the relationship he has given up, or the relationship he has always dreamed of having.

Here you are.

- Make it out to you?

- No, for my cousin Loretta.

Could you sign "with love"?

- Excuse me.

- This is terrific, isn't it?

He's very talented. And funny.

This is a notion

Duffy and I kicked around.

- It matured into this.

- You work with him?

No, I'm a paediatrician.

But I am his best friend.

We went to college together.

- I'd love to meet him.

- Let me have your number.

I'll see what I can do.

Being a cartoonist

is the hardest job in the world.

No, that title has to go

to Noriega's dermatologist.

Very funny!

Excuse me, excuse me.

Duffy, Duffy. That redhead

over there, she's a big fan.

- Really wants you to call.

- Spare me. I can't go through that.

- Don't you want to meet women?

- Not the way you do.

You use a spear gun and I use a net.

I don't fall for every woman

I make eye contact with.

- Do you mind if I use this?

- Be my guest.

Somebody was Wendy's friend.

Thank you.

- What is this?

- Your cappuccino.

You think this is cappuccino?

Taste it!

- Don't start.

- Mr Celebrity, you want another cup?

No. Could I meet

the person who made it?

- This way.

- Thank you. Excuse me.

A little emergency just came up.

I'll be right back. Don't go away.

- It's just a cup of coffee.

- It's not just a cup of coffee.

Excuse me. Hello!

Hello, folks. Excuse me.

Who is the Bulgarian bear wrestler

who made this?

- I'm the Bulgarian bear wrestler.

- This is delicious.

- Oh?

- Really wonderful coffee.

- He said he hates the coffee.

- This guy!

I said I hate the coughing!

It was driving me nuts.

You can breathe in stuff, you get colds.

The coffee was sensational.

Oh, thanks. I'm so flattered.

Why don't you have some more?

- No, no.

- I insist.

- A nice big cup.

- Oh, boy! Thank you.

Oh, my. Gosh. Thank you.

Oh, you can just...

- Nice aroma!

- Yeah.

- How do you do this?

- It's my little secret.

- Don't tell anyone.

- No, I won't.

You don't want the word to get out

about this stuff. Oh, no.

- Duff, they need you out there.

- I have to go to work now.

- What a shame. So do I.

- Could I talk with you later?

Finish your cappuccino

and then we'll see.

I would like to talk with you.

- I'll be busy.

- You mean working?

No, I'm taking my private jet

to St Moritz for the skiing.

Duffy, there are people waiting for you.


Last one. Good night, everybody.

Good night. Take care.

- Are you cooking tomorrow night?

- Yes, I'll be there, 8.00. Good night.

Hey! Yo!

Hey! Hey, lady!

Wait a second. Hello, there!

Do you ski here often?

Yeah, once in a while.

I came to see if I could ski you home.

Hold on one second.

Don't go away. I want to apologise.

Please! I brought you a present.

Look. Here, taste this, will you?

Give this a little taste.

- Tell me what you think.

- Why are you dressed like this?

- I'm going to St Moritz.

- Oh. Yeah, right.

That's pretty good.

- How did you make this?

- Tell me your name.

- Tell me how you did this.

- It's easy.

You have an automatic coffee grinder.

You put it on a 1.8 setting.

You have to have a rich, heavy coffee.

You can't use some dumb

Costa Rican/Haitian blend.

The milk has to be room temperature,

otherwise the machine takes so long

heating up that you burn the coffee.

That's all. Coffee's important to me.

- This is really quite amazing.

- So you'll tell me your name?

- Meg. Meg Lloyd.

- Meg? Very short.

That's a very short name.

- This party was for you, right?

- Yeah.

- Do you like a fuss made over you?

- Sometimes. Don't you?

No, I'm from Maine.

We don't need much to keep us happy.
