Morning Glory

Synopsis: Becky (Rachel McAdams) is a hard-working morning TV show producer, or at least she was until she got fired. Desperate to get a job, she finally gets an interview with Jerry (Jeff Goldblum) - who is desperate to hire a producer for the struggling show "Daybreak". Becky accepts the job and it proves to be more difficult than even she might be able to handle. She has to fire the sexist co-host, then try to convince egotistical news reporter, Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford), to take the job, and then try and get him to actually do the job, properly. And she has to do this while falling for handsome Adam (Patrick Wilson), and trying to save the show from plummeting ratings. Will Becky be able to hold on to her dream job and her sanity?

- Hi. Hi, hi.

- Hey.

- You must be...

- Bill.

- Yeah.

- Hi.

Hi. Becky. Hi.

Thanks for having dinner so early.

I know it's... it's a pain.

No, that's, that's...

Interesting crowd.

Yeah. My job is the problem.

I'm... I work at

Good Morning, New Jersey and...

- Right, on channel nine. Right?

- Right. Yeah.

So, yeah, we're on really early, so I...

I go to bed really early and

we used to be on at, 5am,

but then we got bought by this

giant company and they wanted

to run us instead of infomercials.

'Cause we generate

slightly more revenue and...

Now we're on at four.

Sorry, I'm gonna turn this off.

It's so...

Sorry. That's like, oh, my God,

that's so annoying

when people do this.

It's like, "check, please."

I'm not gonna touch this...

ever again. Sorry.

No, that's, it's... it's OK.

It's OK.


I'm... I'm really glad that

you picked this place. I...

You know, it kind of reminds me

of Matthews in Waldwick.

They have the most amazing, like,

delicious, thick, big, juicy...

Lots of Belgian waffles

and syrup in the...


Anyway... boring!

What do you do?

- Anna told me you're in...

- Marketing.

- Right.

- For an insurance company,

and I dabble in ceramics, but...

Take it.

Sorry, it's... I... This is my boss.

- Go ahead. Take it.

- Really?

- Yeah.

- OK, great, thanks.

Just be a sec. Promise.

Hi! Yeah, yeah.

I left three messages

for his attorney. I don't know.

If he doesn't call me back, I'm gonna...

I'll wait outside his office.

- Good morning, Becky.

- 'Night, Jim.

Good morning, New Jersey,

it's 2am.

We cover the Garden State

from corner to corner.

...the perfect alternative...

New Jersey Transit is reporting

a 20-minute delay...

...come out in support

of your local eateries.

Powerball Lottery jackpot...

Right in the base...

Yes, but I did it in

a really adorable way.

Rent a mini-rig. Cheaper and we can

get closer to the action.

I was thinking we'd get someone

in the winner's circle.

A pinata?

You can do the pinata?

- I can do it.

- Yeah? OK.

- Four... three...

- Thank you, thank you.

Ready to dissolve to jib.

Jib, ready to make your move.

Ten seconds to air,


Ready to roll track

and fade up under one.

...three, two... one.

Roll track and fade up under one.

Good morning, New Jersey.

A quick look at traffic now.

Holland Tunnel is backed up

'cause of an overturned big rig

in the right and center lanes.

Officials say this should be cleared up

in about an hour.

So then, expect delays

from Ridgefield Park.

- But until then, you should...

- Is that snoring?

Jesus. Not again. Can you

go to the single of Ralph?

- Harry, Harry.

- The Deko!

- Wrong lower third!

- The Deko!

...the hidden dangers

that could be in your home.

All that and a look at sports

at the top of the hour.

Stick with us here

at Good Morning, New Jersey.

Oh, my God.

- Nice shot. You're a stud.

- No problemo.

Rain will fall

when you go to the mall

Later will clear,

the sun will appear

Overnight low is 50

Move your rear

Hey, ho, whoo

- Hey.

- Hi.

Hey, I talked to Raymond in HR.

He said the company's reorganizing

all the stations and they've budgeted

us for a new senior producer.

They pulled your employment records.

You're getting it, Becky.

You're finally getting the job.

Hey, kiddo, can you come by my office

after the show?

- Oh, me.

- No, not me, you.


The puppy, a Chinese crested is worth
