Synopsis: In colorful, bustling modern-day Manhattan, Rafi Gardet, a beautiful 37-year-old photography producer reeling from a recent divorce, meets David Bloomberg, a handsome 23-year-old painter recently out of college. Rafi's therapist, Dr. Lisa Metzger, who is working to help Rafi overcome her fears of intimacy, finds out that Rafi's new lover is--unfortunately for Lisa--her only son, David. Both David and Rafi must contend with their 14-year age gap, vastly different backgrounds and the demands of David's traditional mother. Despite their intense attraction, the charmed couple soon realizes that vastly different ages and backgrounds create much conflict. A Jewish hip-hop lover and closet painter who still lives with his grandparents, David has little in common with Rafi--a non-practicing Catholic from a wealthy, broken family who travels in the sophisticated, high-end world of fashion.

Oh, I'm sorry.

It's so hot in here...

and I can't figure

this stupid thing out.

I signed the papers.


How are you feeling?


Francis was there.

Obviously, he was there.

It was really hard

to see him.

And he signed so fast.

I at least pretended to look things over

one last time.

He sounds terrified

to me...

It's going to

take a while.

I mean,

nine years, Rafi.

You can't just walk away

from that kind of time.

The crazy thing is...

I'm out of this marriage,

what, five minutes...

and all of a sudden

I just...

I find myself

thinking about...

a baby.

Why now?

And why didn't I think about

this when I was married?

Well, I mean, you know...

on a certain level,

you knew this was not the right man.

So you were protecting yourself

in that way.

That was a good thing.

Oh, Rafi,

you're coming alive again.

You know, you just want

all the things...

that you had to forget

that you could have.

That's a very good place

to move into.

And the baby thing

will happen...

when it's the right time.

But just focus on the now.

For now.

Hey, Dave, it's Morris...

Listen, I got a favor

to ask you.

I went out with this girl

the other night.

And she told me never to call her again.

You know how that goes.

So I'm gonna need you

to come with me this time.

Don't freak out, all right?

I don't know how to get to Bay Ridge.

I'm not sure.


I don't understand

why I have to be a part of this.

You have

an incurable sickness.

It's okay, though.

I understand.

But why am I

being involved?

- How are you being involved?

- Because I'm in the car.

I'm going to be a witness to this.

That makes me an accessory.

- What, like a handbag?

- Morris.

So who's it this time?

You know what? Don't...

I don't wanna know. Don't tell me.

Her father's probably in

waste management or something.

What I would like to know is why

no girl will go out with you twice.

One date, it's over.

What do you do? What do you say?

You know,

it's a mystery to me, too.

Are you a hermaphrodite?

Do you have hantavirus?

This is it. Come on.

All right,

just make this quick.

I gotta meet Michelle

at the movies a little later.

- Michelle? God.

- Just make it quick.

- Hi.

- What the hell are you doing here?

I told you I never wanted

to see you again.

I just want to talk.

Just come out here

and let's talk.

I can't believe

you came to my house.

- You have no respect for women.

- I don't, I'm sorry.

You hurt my feelings, okay,

you piece of sh*t.

- Okay. Okay.

- I can't believe you're here.

Okay? Okay?

- Mikey!

- Okay, I'm gonna go.

Joey, come out here!

- Mikey! Joey! Come out here! Mikey? Joey?

- Go! Get in the car! Get in the car!

Go, go, go!

Oh, sh*t!

It's not funny.

- Meeting Michelle.

- Yeah.

What are you going to see,


You're the wind

beneath my wings, Mo.

Hey, did you ever know

you were my hero?

- Have fun.

- All right, man.



Ah, right, I remember your name.

How you doing?


- What's going on?

- Nothing much.

This is my friend Katherine

and this is my friend Rafi.



So what are you

doing here?

- Well, I thought I'd see a movie.

- Right.

Why? Are you embarrassed

to be seen with me?

- What?

- It's okay. Just tell me.

My God, this kid is funny.

Where did you get him?

Well, he works at Travelart

and we met that client through this...



- Randall.

- I'm sorry.

- Hi. Michelle.

- Michelle.

You have your tickets yet?

No, we're gonna get tickets.

- Are you seeing this?

- Yeah.

- You are?

- Yeah.

That's great. We're...

- I'll see you in there.

- Okay, good. We'll be in...

Get in the bun.

Get in the bun.

It's locked.


The door. It won't open.

So, does this

happen to you a lot?

Actually, not often enough.

So what are we gonna do?

Wait till somebody comes out.


- Thank you.

- Yeah.

So, how long

have you guys been dating?

- Couple of weeks.

- We're not dating.

Okay. Next question.

I mean, we only went out twice

before this.

- Do you consider that dating?

- I guess I did.

I'm sorry.

I mean, to me,

dating sounds more serious.

Like you've already been

going out for a couple of months, like...

Maybe you don't

live together...

but you definitely stay over

a couple of nights a week.

You don't worry about

who paid for the last meal anymore.

You've seen each other pee,

you know?

More serious kind of stuff.

Then what do you call this?

Well, that's it.

There are officially

no cute boys left here.

All right.

It's so nice to get out.

It was nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.

Dave. Very nice to see you.

Good night.

Bye. Nice to meet you.

One, two, three, four.

Just f***ing call her.




- Hi. It's Dave...


Did you just call me?


We get disconnected?


Did you hang up?


They say it's better

to lie sometimes...

but I can't really do that

when I'm this nervous.

I think I need to be

in a better place.

I like it better this way.

I've been around enough lying to say so.

You had a lot of liars

in your life, huh?

- What?

- Sh*t.

Would you like to go out

to dinner with me tomorrow?

David, I'm making a sandwich.

Do you want one?

No, I'm fine!

- Who's that?

- That's my roommates.

So, do you want

to have dinner?

- Yes.

- Yeah?

I'll call you tomorrow.



- Bye.
