Over Her Dead Body

Synopsis: In Los Angeles, Henry is a veterinarian whose fiancée Kate dies in an accident on the day they're to marry. Worried that Henry has closed off his social life, his sister suggests he use a psychic to contact Kate, lay to rest unresolved feelings, and live more fully. He tries it, though he doesn't believe in it. Nothing happens, so his sister gives Ashley, the psychic, Kate's diary. Now she's able to convince Henry she's in contact with Kate and start the therapy. Two things happen: they find themselves attracted to each other, and Kate's ghost, who also has some unresolved issues, returns to stop this budding romance.

We have a lot

of vegetarians...

so I wanna make sure every tray

has a vegetarian item...

and a non-vegetarian item.

Got it?

And they can't touch. Okay?

And if you run out of either,

go back and refill.

Don't just circulate with one.

Got it?

And if you get the feeling

one is running out faster...

than the other,

then just load the trays...

according to that ratio.

You got it?

Okay, what else?

- Hey!

- Um... Ooh!

It's your wedding day. Relax.


I find a little stress

goes a long way.

If I worry now, then

I can relax during the ceremony.

You're not gonna relax

during the ceremony.

You're right.

You should, though.

It's gonna be perfect.

It's really coming together,

isn't it?

You know,

I think we should probab...

What in the heck?

Well, hello, little lady.

What can I do for you?

What the hell is this?

Why, it's the angel...

just like your ordered.

No, but she doesn't have wings.

Yeah. So?

So angels have wings.

This is just a lady.

No. No, no, no.

It's... It's an angel.

See, beautiful,

all-knowing smile...

eyes that have seen

a thousand eternities... angel.

Chloe, do angels have wings?



That's the difference between

a person and an angel: wings.

Why do angels

have to have wings?

So they can fly.

No, but angels are magical.

They don't need wings to fly.

What, does God have wings?

Okay, I'm not gonna stand here

and debate theology with you.

So just take it back

and bring me one with wings.

All right, no.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, little miss.

This is a ice sculpture.

I sculpted it out of ice,

then it melts...

and I don't have a lot of them

just lyin' around.

So sculpt some wings

and stick them on. I don't care.

This isn't what I ordered,

and I'm not accepting it.

- Yeah. But I...

- Tut-tut-tut, take it back.

I made an angel.

Oh, yoo-hoo.

Oh, not done with you.

Not so fast.

Um, did you get

the appetizers down?

Do I need

to go through it again?


Are you nodding to signal yes,

or is your neck broken?

Oh, yes, appetizers. Yes.


I want this on a schedule.

So I want you to get

the salads down...

even if the people aren't...

My gardenias!

Your what?

- Stop! You're gonna run over...

- Doesn't seem to be a reason...

- my gardenias!

- why we didn't do that.

You idiot! Stop your truck!

I'm just doing what

I'm supposed to be doing. I...

- Stop the truck!

- Huh?


- What are you talkin' about?

- Stop the truck!

- Stop!

- Oh!


Who the hell are you?

Kate, I know this must be...

That idiot with the truck!

I'm gonna kill him.

I'm gonna sue him,

and then I'm gonna kill him!

What time is it?

That's not really important

right now.

Don't tell me what's important.

I'm getting married today.

No, you're not.

How long

have I been unconscious?

- What kind of hospital is this?

- Will you please stop...

interrupting and just listen.

Look, my insurance pays

your salary...

so if I want some information,

just do me the courtesy...

Will you shut up? You're dead!

Is that some kind of sick joke?

Look around you.

There are no walls.


Where do you think you are?

Okay, you were crushed to death.

I'm sorry. I lost my cool.

I don't usually do that.

I'm dead?

I'm sorry.

Now, we don't have much time.

- Is this heaven?

- Not exactly.

- Hell?

- No. Just listen, please.

There are some important things

for you to know.

Well, who are you?

I'm an angel.

Who put you up to this?

Put me up to what?

For the last damn time,

angels have wings.


Oh, my God, you're disappearing.

That's not good. I'm sorry.

You were saying something

about important information?

Wait! Don't go!




It's coming in clearer now.

Definitely, coming in clearer.

A boat.

He left the money on your boat.

We didn't have a boat.

No boat?

Hold on.

I'm getting something.

- You're sure you didn't have a boat?

- No boat.

Maybe he had a boat

that you didn't know about.

He was afraid of the water.

A boot?

Probably not?

Let me see

if something else comes in.

Do you hear that, too?

Yeah, I do.

Is it from beyond?

Is that a message?

No. I think it's my smoke alarm.

Can you excuse me a second,


Oh, God! Oh, no!

Oh, no!

What, what, what?

- What is it?

- Uh, no, everything's fine.

No, no, no.

It's under control.

- It's just a little, uh...

- What is that?

Just a little smoky, that's all.

Oh, God. Move.

It's the thing in that

silver pan that burned.

The osso bucco.

I-I-I don't know.

Does the name matter?

It's on fire.

God, Dan,

you're like the worst cook ever.

- Sorry. Sorry.

- Get the crab
