Just Like Heaven

Synopsis: Elizabeth Masterson, a dedicated doctor in San Francisco, had almost no time for anything. When her sister with two kids set her up on a date, she gets into a tragic car crash and goes into a coma. Meanwhile, a landscape architect named David Abbott moves to San Francisco and, coincidentally, into Elizabeth's apartment for rent. While at the apartment, Elizabeth's spirit haunts him. She doesn't remember who she is, who her family is or what she did - All that she remembered was her apartment and where everything was. To settle the arguments, David agrees to figure out who Elizabeth really is. When they get close to figuring out who she is, they eventually find love with one another and as they finally know who she really is, they learn that fate really has put them both together.

Elizabeth, you're so lucky that all

you have to worry about is work.

Yes, I'm coming.

Good. Because this guy is great.

You met him? Is he there?

I haven't actually

met him in person.

Abby, you're not setting me up

with a stranger.

He's a friend of an old friend.

He's really nice.

What does that mean,

fat with a good sense of humor?

Not again, Abby.

It wasn't easy

to get this guy to come.

He doesn't do this kind of thing either.

Do you girls have to do that here?

Do we not have six other rooms

in the house? Help Mommy.

I'm in the seventh circle of hell,

you better show up.

I'll be there.

I'm just really busy.

Don't you dare. You don't know

the meaning of the word.

I'm doin' you this huge favor here.

Beggars can't be choosers.

I am completely capable

of meeting men on my own.

I know, honey. I'd just like you

to meet one who's not bleeding.

I've already had

two marriage proposals today.

Yes, of course.
