I Love Trouble

Synopsis: Veteran reporter Peter Brackett is enjoying new found fame after his book, "White Lies" is published. When he is asked by his newspaper "The Chicago Chronicle" to report on a train crash, he notices new reporter Sabrina Peterson. Brackett's complacency gets rudely shocked by Peterson's report for the rival "Chicago Globe." What follows next is a mad race between the reporters who then cook up possible events that lead up to the crash. After an initial spate of mad reporting, both settle down to get the facts straight, which leads them to uncover opposing information. When each gets setup to be killed at the same place, they escape, and then agree to work together. While they initially do not trust one another, they eventually come to work together to uncover the truth behind the train crash.

Come on, Hallie.

Wait up!

I'm Catching up.

The Lord is my shepherd.

I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down

in green pastures.

He leadeth me beside

the still waters.

He restoreth my soul.

Yea, though I walk through

the valley of the shadow of death...

I will fear no evil,

for Thou art with me.

Thy rod and Thy staff,

they comfort me.

My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall

follow me all the days of my life...

and I shall dwell in the house

of the Lord forever.

Amen.

May I have your attention,

please?

I enjoyed meeting you.

The pleasure was all mine.

Take care.

I'm sure he'll be here any minute.

Please, be patient.

- Damn!

Peter Brackett's office.

Who are all those people

in Peter Brackett's office?

I can't wait around

all morning.

Your publicist. A guy with a gripe

from Alderman Cvack's office.

A jockey.

You're buying a race horse?

Do you know that your column's

due in nine minutes?

- This could be a record, even for you.

- I know, I know. Just tell...

- I want to talk to him. Give me the phone.

- Just tell the jockey that I'm gonna talk...

Peter, it's me. Listen, honey. I can't keep

setting up these prestigious book signings...

if you're gonna disappear

five minutes into the affair.

And who'd you disappear with, anyway? The

blonde with the legs up the kazoo or the...

Lindy, just give me a little credit. I got

food poisoning from the hors d'oeuvres.

- I'm in bed. I can barely speak.

- Mm-hmm.

Brackett, you're killing me.

It's written.

I swear you'll have it in three minutes.

You tell him we're gonna stop by later,

all right? Can you believe this guy?

Brilliant, charming,

undependable.

Just brilliant. You're brilliant,

Brackett. Just brilliant.

Matt, we got a bullet.

- Where's Shapiro? Shapiro!

- She left.

- Where's Knobloch?

- Covering a fire in Winnetka.

Another minute, you would've missed

the syndicate. Where's Jake?

Went home with a 103 fever,

Mr. Greenfield.

- Suzie!

- Right here.

Get me Varney at home, or Kovler.

He lives out that way.

I'm going to a dinner party.

Do you have the address?

Right here. Cocktails at 7:00. Dinner

00. Also don't forget tomorrow.

Good Day, Chicago. You're the

first guest, so don't be late.

Varney's wife is having a baby.

Kovler is not home, and Jake's temperature's up to 104.

Don't give me that hound dog look.

I don't cover the beat anymore.

And I don't print

recycled columns.

I can't believe what I'm hearing.

Now, are you actually accusing me...

- of plagiarizing myself?

- Suzie!
