Heaven Sent

Synopsis: Echoing in the deepest depths of space, a humble prayer ascends: One from Maire Taylor, a smart, beautiful businesswoman who asks that her husband find the strength and wisdom to let go of their 9 year old marriage ... While a second prayer simultaneously comes from Billy Taylor, a hopelessly romantic artist who asks that his wife receive the strength and wisdom to hold on. From these humble pleas, comes an answer in the form of a little miracle (an 8 year old runaway from heaven) who takes it upon herself to rekindle the once intimate friendship and romance that has slowly, but surely slipped away from Billy and Maire due to a heart-wrenching loss. Using all of her skill and charm (as well as some well-intentioned mischief!) our little 8 year old runaway comically sets out to heal their broken hearts and save their marriage by helping them get back to the basics of love.

God, they say

that You are Love.

( voice echoes )

If that's true,

I sure could use

a little of You right now.

I know I've had

my doubts,

but right now, I am so confused.

If You are out there,

I really need to know.

I just don't know

what to do anymore.

I don't

know how to reach her/him.

If You could just

send a little sign.


Anything that will give him

the strength to let go.

to hold on.

( straining )

Oh, come...

( straining )

I could pretend that

I'm some sort of expert,

but why?

I mean, I'm not embarrassed

to admit

that I just spent

the last nine years

in a marriage, and never

once knew what I was doing.

I hope your homeowners'

is paid up there, Billy.

( chuckles )

Hey, George.

Glory! How many lights

you got on the old casa?

Well, I tell you.

However many it takes.

( laughs )

Wait till you see what

I'm getting ready to do

with this evergreen tree

right here.


What do you got for me today?

Oh, I got two

for you today, Billy.

One's a Christmas card,

and the other one's from

a Haggerty and Kaufman.

Haggerty and Kaufman?


Billy! Careful!

Geez, that was something!

You okay, Billy?

Huh? Are you sure?

That was a heck of a fall.


I'll be off then.

Here's hoping your day

gets better.


The divorce papers that

George delivered that morning

made me feel like

I'd been hit by a truck,

which reminds me

of an old truism.

Nobody ever gets into a car

thinking they're gonna crash.

I guess the same

can be said about marriage.

It's like I always knew

disaster could strike,

but I always thought it would

happen to the other guy.

Then I realized,

to all the other

people in the world,

I am the other guy,

and it was my turn to crash.

Deck the halls

with boughs of holly

Fa la la la la la la la

'Tis the season

to be jolly

Fa la la la la la la la

Don we now

our gay apparel

Look at 'em.

Clueless fools.

Don't they know

what they're getting into?

I mean, sure,

we've all heard the vows,

but do we really

get the meaning?

Can I help you?

For richer...

Spare change?

For poorer.

In sickness...

And in health.

Till death do us part.

But what happens to

all those promises, hm?

Are they just words?

Empty amulets of hope

against a false reality?

You ask me, Harry Nilsson

said it best in a song.

"You're breaking my heart,

you're tearing it apart,

so forget you."

And I cleaned that last part up.

First of all,

you should know

that I agree with almost

everything Billy has said.

Once upon a time,

Billy Taylor was my best friend,

my lover,

and my business partner.

We were good.

No, we were great together.

But then, somehow,

everything started to change.

Slowly but surely,

we started to change.

- What's this?

- A better number.

I can tell you weren't too

impressed with our last offer.

You're definitely

getting warmer.

But I'll need to talk

to Billy about this.

Why am I suddenly worried that

you're not too sure about selling?

I'm sure.

Billy isn't.

In fact, he's actually

downstairs right now,

so maybe we can

pick this up on Monday.

Basically, Miss Reed,

we started Poet's Walk

with one purpose in mind.

That was to remember

that special occasion

even if you don't.

- Or can't.

- Exactly.

And you know how

a will or a trust

has an executor?

Well, we are the executors

of well wishes.

You mind if I ask

why Billy doesn't wanna sell?

I mean, what if he says no?

Oh, he won't.

Don't get me wrong,

Billy's my partner,

and I want his blessing,
