Love Locks

Synopsis: Lindsey Wilson, who owns/operates a successful local New York art magazine, is offered a few propositions by Trent Greer, an international publisher: he would like to buy her magazine to take it to a larger market, she who would retain the role as consultant and who would be allowed to retain her key staff; and he would like to date her. Lindsey's assistant Maggie believes she would be crazy not to accept the date as she considers Trent the most handsome man on the face of the Earth. Lindsey will have time to mull both proposals over as she is taking a week long trip to Paris with her eighteen year old daughter Alexa Wilson, who is following in her mother's footsteps in taking a semester in the art program at the Sorbonne under who was Lindsey's mentor when she was a student there, Hugo Blanchet. Lindsey, who has not been to Paris in twenty years since she was a student, hopes that Alexa will not follow in another of her Paris footsteps, namely falling in love while she's there. Lindse

"L" is for the way

you look at me

"O" is for the only one

I see

"V" is

very, very extraordinary

"E" is even more

than anyone that you adore can

love is all

that I can give to you

love is more than

just a game for two

two in love can make it

take my heart

and please don't break it

love was made for me and you

"L" is for the way

you look at me

"O" is for the only one...

I don't wanna

go back to New York.

It's gone by

too fast.

Maybe I don't.

Maybe I stay here and paint.

No, no, no,

we have a plan, remember?

It just feels like goodbye.

No, no goodbyes.

Look, it'll just be

a few months.

You have to finish school.

I have to finish work.

Have you told your father

you're quitting?

I will.

Hey, we'll be back together

by Valentine's Day.

Top of

the empire state building?

Doesn't sound

quite as romantic

as the top of

the Eiffel Tower,

but it will have to do.

We'll lock it

on the bridge,

and our love

will last forever.





With this lock, I thee...


You did that on purpose.

No, no, no,

that was your fault.

You-you grabbed for it.

Thank you.

Good morning, Maggie.

Morning, Lindsey.

First cup of coffee?


How are we doing

with the Valentine issue?

You just need

to pick a cover.

Not the cupid.

The last thing

I want to think about

is a chubby toddler

coming at me with a weapon.

Hmm, such a romantic.

Not that one.

Speaking of which,

Trent Greer's

in your office.


Sorry, he's a really

hard guy to say no to.

What's he doing here?

Who cares?

He's gorgeous.

Now, do something

with your hair.

What's wrong

with my hair?

You could try wearing it

down sometimes.

Don't you have

something to do?



What a surprise.

Oh, yeah? Good or bad?

Good. Good...

Good. Good...

Um, actually, I wanted

to catch you before you left,

because your assistant said

that you're going

to Paris tomorrow

with your daughter.

Oh, did she tell you

what I had

for breakfast as well?

French toast?

God, I can't believe

you're old enough

to have a daughter old enough

to be in college.

I am also old enough to know

when I'm being buttered up.

All right.

Okay, here it is.

I really want to take you out.


Yeah, and I want

to buy your magazine.


Okay, now, was that

a "yes/yes,"

a "yes/no," or a "no/yes"?


And no.

I-I don't know...

Let me tell you

this, Lindsey,

you've done

an incredible job with pov.

It is-it is a unique magazine,

you've done it yourself,

on a limited budget...

Thank you?

The problem is,

the readership's maxed out,

and it does not

have to be like that,

and I can help you

take it to the next level.

You want to buy me out.

I want you to stay on

to consult.

So I'd be working for you.

With me.

You know, Trent,

the thing is,

I've kind of become

used to being my own boss.

I do get that.

Believe me.

When I opened my first

publishing house,

the last thing on my mind

was selling it,

but I did.

I did, and I built something

bigger and better

than I ever imagined.

So, do me a favor.

While you're traveling,

just think about it.

And the other "it," too.

I will.

And I will.


And, one other thing,

um, I'm actually going

to be in London next week,

and it's a short flight

to Paris.

I'd love the chance

to show you our Paris office.

Wow, you must really want

my magazine.

Oh, yeah, that too.

Tell me he's not

the best-looking guy

you've ever seen.

Looks have

nothing to do with it.

What's wrong?

He wants to buy

the magazine.


What did you say?

I wanted to say "no,"

but somehow I didn't?

Hmm, I'm pretty sure

he has that effect

on everyone.

Would it be

so bad to sell?

I'm saying goodbye

to my daughter,

I don't want to say goodbye

to my business, too.

I know, it's just...

He's just so gorgeous.

Maggie, that's

all you can think about.

Let's finish up

this layout.

That's great.

Really great.

You packed yet?


Throw in something sexy.


You're going

to Paris, girl,

not New Jersey.

All right.

This looks good,

except move the gaucher

to the center,

and increase it to 5x7.

Oh, and also,

increase the opacity

so we're seeing the titles.

Yeah, like that.

Hi, mom!

'Lex? You're early!

Yeah, I caught a ride

with a guy from school!

What guy?

Uh, some guy who's name I found

on the ride board in my dorm.

You drove

all the way from Connecticut

with a total stranger?

And two other friends.

So the three of you drove

from Connecticut

with a total


Mom, you are

helicoptering again.

You're right.

Engine's off.

Hey! I remember that.

It used to be in the hallway.

Yeah, we have better taste now.

No, we don't.

You should put it up again.

It's too big.

You were so good.

Why did you stop?

Hmm, I guess

my fine arts degree

taught me the fine art

of unemployment.

Maybe you'll start again.

No, it's your turn, kiddo.

You hungry?


Alfredo sauce?

Extra cheese!

I can't wait for you

to meet Hugo.

Me either.

He is the best teacher.

But he's a little bit

of a meddler,

so don't tell him too much

about your social life.

Not that you'll have one,

because you'll be

too busy studying.

Uh-huh, right...

Ten letter word

for "soulmate"?


You're terrible.

Or realistic.

Why should there be

only one person for everyone?

But what if
