Nights in Rodanthe

Synopsis: Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her -- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teen-aged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner arrive. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

Amanda, turn that down!


Danny, are you still on that thing?

We've gotta go, honey.

We gotta get rolling here.

Did your sister come in here

to help you with anything?


Your father's gonna be here

in five minutes.

Please get motivated. Get dressed.

Amanda. Amanda?



-I can't even hear myself think in here.



How can I help you...

...get ready to leave this house

in time for your father if you won't help?

You can do it, Mom. I believe in you.

I have a ferry to catch

and I've only got two hands.

-Count them:
one, two.

-She can count too.

That's enough, smart mouth.

What is that on your stomach?

Go wash it off.

-Are these clean?


Actually, I can't wash it off,

because it's a real tattoo.



You got a tattoo

without asking permission?

-Wait till Dad sees.

-You're an idiot.


No, you are!

-You are!


-Get out of my room!

Stupid idiot!



I don't wanna go with Dad.

Oh, honey...

It's Orlando, Dan.

There's lots to do, it'll be fun.

No, it won't.

Okay, so it won't.

But you know what, we'll talk every day.


You're being so brave.


Amanda, your father's here.

You better cover that thing up...

...unless you wanna deal

with your father.

You look tired.

Yeah. I'm sure I do.

-Who wants to have some fun around here?



Ah. Oh.

-Go on.

Come on. How you doing?

Come on, give me a big hug. Ade.


-Danny's medicine's in his backpack.

He takes them every night.

-She's got a report due.

-On Magellan. Yeah, she and I talked.

Look, Ade, between you and me,

we got it covered.

I've gotta get on the road.

Shouldn't you be leaving?

-Sit down.

-I've got a ferry to catch.

-For a minute, please.



I wanna come home.


I don't know how I could have

been so stupid.

I know any chance

that you could forgive me...

-Forgive you?

-... is out the window.


-Only what?

I want a chance.

I'm not saying that I deserve it.

-Jack, I can't. Please.

-I'll try like anything.

Adrienne. I love you.

I love you so much.

I know what I've lost here...

...and I'll do anything in my power

to get it back.

Jack, you can't just walk in here

and do this to me out of the blue.

Because it didn't work out

with what's-her-name?

We ought to be together.

Now, Adrienne, you know that.

All you've gotta do is look at the children.

-Come on. Come to Orlando with us.


We'll put the kids on the dumb rides.

It'll give us time to be alone.

Oh, Jack, I can't, I can't.

I told Jean that I would help her,

you know.

-I'm going to do what I said I would do.

-Okay. Okay. Okay.

When I get back, we'll talk?

Yeah, okay.

We'll talk when you get back.

Jack, okay, we'll talk then.

Hey, guys.


Oh, Dr. Flanner.

I thought we'd missed you.

No, I-

Tell them I hope they're happy here.

You remember where I keep

the extra towels?

I know where everything is. I'll be fine.

You have to wait for the hot water

to burble up.

You reminded me twice.

And I got an emergency generator... case the storm turns into anything

and you lose power.

It's never been turned on before,

so I wouldn't count on it.

If it gets stuck, kick it hard.

And that goes for most things around here.

Jack wants to come back.

Uh-huh. I wouldn't worry

about the storm, though.

Weatherman's always predicting this,
