No Stranger Than Love

Synopsis: A young, pretty art teacher, Lucy (adored by every male in her small home town), attempts to embark on an affair with her co-worker, married high-school football coach, Clint. Before it can eventuate he is sucked into a bottomless, zero-gravity hole in her living room floor. One by one all town members come to inspect, theorize about and try to remove Clint from the hole, and in doing so learn about his disloyalty to his wife. The movie is a bit like Being John Malkovich in its metaphysical satire.

Hi, Bob.




Uh, Ms. Sherrington?

I have a question. Um...

Did you know that Napoleon had a girlfriend

who was 19 years older than he was?

Ms. Sherrington, could you come

to the office immediately please?

I did not know that, Alex.

- It's dark. It's black.

- John?

It's Ethiopia.

It's the jungle.

My God, John, you are the principal.

Just listen.

Lucy, I want you and me to Chuck

everything, just Chuck it.

- Oh, good God.

- And then we go to some third world country,

drop to our hands and knees and

sink up to our elbows in filth.


Filth is life, Lucy.

See, I chose this janitor's closet as a symbol.

See, I've really thought this thing out.

John, how do we get out of

here without people seeing us?

Right through that door.

I am sick and tired of caring what people think.

You go out first.

And then I'm going to...

I want to bust out of here and I

want to bust out of here with you.

Hemingway was shooting elephants when he was my age.

John, really, I mean it!

John, I hate that.

I just absolutely hate that.

This yanking! Don't you ever

yank me like that ever again.

Ever. You hear me?

Oh. Did you tell her about the votes?

Less than one minute ago, Mrs. Crooper.

Congratulations, Lucy.

You're queen of the jamboree again.

The whole town is so proud of you.


- Hey, Queenie!

- Ugh!

Don't you 'ugh' me. So who's

bringing the pastries for tomorrow?

I am.

Well, yes, though you brought them last time.

I know. I want to.

Hmm, you want to.

All right, I'll see you tomorrow.

Hi, Willie.

Hey, you wanna go out tonight?

It's a school night.


I really can't. I really...

Well, good, 'cause I can't either.

Sorry to tell you I'm drunk as a turd.

Aw, Willie.

I know. I know, I hate it too.

I just wanna ask you a favor.

When you see me from now on

can you try lookin' a little deeper?

- Deeper?

- Uh-huh.

'Cause I'm a helluva surprise

when you look past the...

Well, you know, me not having much of a job

and riding around on a Schwinn, that sort of thing,

and I am so much in love with you, okay?

Okay, Willie.

Thank you, Lucy.

See you later.

Hey, Lucy!

Hey, Lucy! Lucy, check it out.

Check it out!

No, no, no, Lucy.

Lucy, check this out.


Have a good one.


Hi, Lucy. It's... it's Vernon.

I hope I'm not bothering you.

No, no, I'm just getting ready for bed is all.

Okay, well, I won't keep you.

Um, what I was wondering is,

are you finished with the books I gave you?

Well, no, Vernon,

I haven't gotten around to them yet.

Well, that's fine then.

I was just curious to know

your thoughts about the poems

and that piece on the end of nature.

'Cause you always have such a fresh angle on things.

Well, I'm looking forward

to them, Vernon, I really am.

Okay, well, maybe I'll bump

into you tomorrow at school.

I hope so. Goodnight.

Goodnight, Vernon.


I'm at the dairy whip.

You really are?

I really am.

- I'm coming over.

- What did you say?

I... I said I'm coming over.

I mean to your wife.

Oh, oh. Uh, I said that I was gonna

the school to watch old game films.

And I did. I... I actually went

there and I watched old game films

so it wouldn't be a lie.

Good. That's good.

What did she say?

She said fine.

I'm gonna leave my car in the woods.

Okay, I'm gonna turn off the

outside lights so it's darker.

We really have to be very careful about this, Clint.

No, I... I know. I know.

She... you think I don't know?

The side door by the woods.

Side door by the woods.

Here I come.

Oh, God, have you ever felt like this?

Well, I dunno.
