Gray Matters

Synopsis: Gray and Sam are brother and sister and best friends, flatmates in New York City, where she creates ad campaigns and he's a surgery intern. Their social life is too insular, so they head to a dog park so Sam can, maybe, meet a woman. He does - Charlie - a zoologist new in the city; he likes her immediately, and the feeling seems mutual. As the three of them spend time together, what if Gray's feelings for Charlie aren't just sisterly? Not only might this explain her solitary life, but it could lead to real dilemmas - with Charlie (who's sweet, but a bit opaque) and with Sam. No advice comes from Gray's therapist, but a co-worker and a cab driver give theirs. Can Gray sort things out?

What are you doing? Come back.

- No.

- Come on. Turn around.

Hey, hey!

You're the best.

You're amazing.

What do you say?

Beers on me. Cold beers on me.

Let's go!


Weren't they wonderful?

Come on.

Keep it going, Gray.

- Hey.

- Help!

- Okay.

- Help. Ohh.

- Don't rush over, okay?

- You pick up something for dinner?

- Yeah. Mmm.

- What do you got?

- Okay, I got us steak.

- Good.

- And chicken.

- Good.

- And fish.

- And fish.

- And tofu.

- Good.

- And tempeh.

- Oh, great. We got tempeh.

Then I got the regular essentials,

like asparagus and lettuce.

I got it.

I'm not home, okay?

Don't answer it, okay? Let's-

Hello? Hey, Carrie. Who?

Yeah, she's right here.

Hey, honey.

- Dinner? No. We just rented a DVD.

- Raging Bull.

- We go out. I hate when you say that.

- I hate it when she says that.

- Okay, uh, do you want a, uh, merlot or cabernet?

- Oh, here we go.

Do you want something fruity

or full-bodied and do-

Okay. Okay. What- Californian, French,

Argentinean, Chilean, Australian, Span-

- Still at it?

- Okay, you don't have to yell.

- Ohh!

- Oh, my God. That is amazing.

Oh, my God. Carrie.

Do you believe this?


I would like to say something.

To Carrie and Dereck

and their lovely friends.

Oh, my goodness.

I don't know what it means,

but it sounded beautiful.

- It's a fake accent. He's from Poughkeepsie.

- God, he is adorable.

I could eat him alive.

Do you think he's single?

- I don't think he plays on your team.

- But he's overweight.

And poofs are rarely beefy. I wrote

a piece about that in a magazine once.

- Did you?

- Mm-hmm.

Carrie, do you have

the new Liza Minnelli CD?

- Mmm. Okay, and scratch my last comment. Cheers.

- Cheers.

How's that new campaign coming along?

Carrie tells me it's been brutal.

- Oh, uh, more for you, yeah?

- Yes.

- Red or white?

- I'll have red. Actually, I'll have white.

- Okay.

- You know, I'll have both.

- All right.

- Um, well, Julia Bartlett is not an easygoing client.

- She's the worst.

- If Carrie wasn't on the account, I'd pull my hair out.

Oh, honey.

- Doesn't mean you're getting

a promotion before me.

- Ooh, you sneaky little b*tch.

- So, um, what do you do?

I'm doing my, uh, surgical residency

at Mount Sinai Hospital...

with a specialty in, uh-

heart transplants.

- Oh, fabulous.

- Thanks.

And how long have

you two been together?

- Us two?

- Mm-hmm.

Thirty years.

- I'm sorry. Did I miss something?

- Well, you're kidding, right?

- No.

- Gray's my sister.

Oh, my God!

No! Ick! No, I'm-

I just- I thought that you

two were an item. Well, I just-

- What? These-These two?

- Well, yeah. You seem so-


I don't know.

So together, I guess.

Hey, what'd I miss?

- Um, she thinks we're together.

- Like "together"together?

- Like screwing each other together.

- Ugh!

You're not the first one

to think that, Elaine.

- Let me tell you.

- What?

- They're very codependent.

- We are not!

- Come on. - You rarely spend

a minute apart. But if that's-

- We do too.

- All day at work, we never see each other.

How about that- Remember?

You want to know something? I've even seen

them share the same toothbrush.

- One time.

- Oh, ick.

- One time is- it's creepy. - L- Listen.

I think that your relationship is charming.

- Thank you.

- Have you ever French-kissed?

That's beautiful.

- We're gonna end up like the Delany sisters.

- Who?

You know, the sisters that were 103

and 105, and they never got married...

and they just did yoga and headstands

together every day.

That's what we should do.
