Just Wright

Synopsis: Leslie Wright is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie's childhood friend Morgan, who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of "best friend" forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him?

When did the angel lose her wings

When she flew from the realms

and the darker dreams

All the gold melted down

and the gates were closed


Life was revealed

and the past exposed

Oh, oh, oh, from back to forth

Sister, oh, oh, oh...

- Hey, Daddy.

- Hey, morning, baby girl.

Promise me,

anything you don't know how to fix,

you'll leave it for a handyman.

Leslie, I got this.

You worry about getting to work on time.

- Have fun tonight on your date.

- I will.

I'm getting somewhere

I'm gonna be there

I'm gonna be there

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

When did the angel fade from white?

Lost her place in the clouds

Took her cues from the night

Set apart by the fall

that destroyed her grace

But the heat from the flames

never touched her face

I rise in the day

of the blazing sun

Saw above all the hate

in the need of blood

I was pressed to succumb to

the dragging down

Yeah, my hand grabbed the line

and I pulled me out

Oh, oh, oh, from back to forth

Sister, oh, oh, oh...

Hey, Leslie. How you doing?

Good morning.


Looking good. Improvement. I like it.

- Just remember to keep that elbow in.

- Okay.

Let me take one of these plates off for you.

Now, work your way back up

to that next plate now.

All right.

- Hey, girl.

- What time is the blind date?

- 8:

- 8:
00? What you gonna wear?

- Black.

- Black.

See you tomorrow.

I'm getting somewhere

I'm gonna be there

I'm gonna be there

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Been dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

Can I get a little help over here?

- Ticket, please.

- Hello?

- Just give it a little pull.

- Okay.

One, two, three!


Sorry about that.

All righty. Take good care of her now.

Hello, Denzel.


- Leslie?

- Yes.

- Nice to meet you.

- You, too. Thank you.

- Shall we?

- Yeah, sure.

All right.

It was like the skies opened up

and I heard the angels singing.

And that's when I knew.

- A little more wine?

- Thank you.

So, what about kids?

As many as we can have.

- Wow.

- I mean, at least two or three kids.

- Really? As long as...

- Absolutely.

All those hours you work?

You have a pretty demanding career

as well, though. Physical therapy.

- There we go.

- Cheers.

Everybody I know who tries tiramisu

is hooked on it.

I don't want to be the next junkie in line.

And you know what? I'm your pusher.

All right?

Open wide.

That is delicious.

We need to wash this down

with some dessert wine.

- I agree.

- Why not?

Let's get toasted.

Let's... Let's get twisted.

You want me to keep feeding you?

We can do this all night.

All night?

- Wow.

- I had such a great time tonight.

- Me, too.

- Yes. Absolutely.

You know, next time maybe we could

catch a movie or, better yet, a Nets game.

You are such an amazing woman.

I'm serious. I mean, any man that gets you

is gonna be beyond lucky.

I'm just out of a very long relationship.

And, you know,

my feelings are still kind of raw.

- I miss her, it's...

- You're not emotionally ready.

- Yeah.

- And you need to be ready.

Yes. I am so happy you get it.

See, you're the bomb.com,

that's what I'm talking about.

I mean, you know, but we can still...

- Hang out.

- ...hang out.

Yeah, I mean, you're, you're...

- Good people.

- ...good people.

Look, I'm sorry, I'm...

Can I get a hug?

- Sure.

- Thank you.

Yes. What kind of car do you have?

He knows.

- Here you go.

- Thank you.
