Seven Girlfriends

Synopsis: Jesse is charming, romantic, and he knows how to pop the question; he just can't face marriage. So, when he and Hannah split up during the same week that a former fiancée dies, he decides to figure things out. He visits each woman about whom he's been serious to ask what went wrong. His teen flame, an independent woman who sometimes sleeps with him, and a group of lesbians give him advice, as does Anabeth, dead but lively in his dreams. One ex remains furious, but with the help of her inventive colleague, the level-headed insomniac Laura, Jesse even gets to talk to her. It's on to Anabeth's funeral, where he'll see Hannah, and maybe grasp what has been eluding him.

(truck horn honks)

- Step, step, okay straight, here we go.

It's almost present time, okay, ready?

Put your hands where mine are.

Ready, okay, don't peak.

- [Woman] Alright.

(woman gasps)

Oh, my God, Jesse, this is amazing!

I can't believe it, no

one's ever done anything

like this for me before.

- No, no, no, no.

This is my cousin's car,

he had to leave it here

'cause he went to that.

(comical music)

Happy two years.

- Oh, wow, this is great.

(clocks chiming)

- This Merlot is gonna

be great with the lamb.

(phone rings)

(man groans)

- You should answer that.

It's Roman.

He wants you to pick up

something for tomorrow.

Pick it up, say hi, Roman,

it'll freak him out.

Go on.

- Hi, Roman.

- Hi, it's me.

- Anabeth.

- Hey, five years and you

still recognize my voice right

away, that's a good sign.

Surprised?

- Yeah.

- [Anabeth] Are you alone?

- Uh, no, no, no.

- [Anabeth] With a woman?

- Uh, yeah.

- Not such a good sign.

She gonna be okay with me calling you?

- Uh, no, no I think not.

- You know that joke, Descartes

goes into a fast food place

orders a burger, waitress

asks him if he wants fries.

He says, "I think not",

then he disappears.

Get it, I think therefore, never mind.

- Anabeth, what are you talking about?

- I'm getting married.

- Oh.

- And, I'm feeling kinda, kinda rushed.

Edwardo, that's his name.

I don't know if I love him

enough and I'm pretty sure

that I still love you.

Do you still wanna marry me?

If you tell me to leave Edwardo I will.

Jesse, are you still there?

- [Jesse] Yeah.

- [Anabeth] I know it's

crazy after all this time,

but the closer I get to

actually going through with this

the more I keep thinking about you and me

and what happened and (gasps).

- Anabeth?

- Hey!

- Hannah.

Hannah?

(groans)

- You still can't sleep?

Oh, babe, I'm sorry about--

- Marry me.

- What?

- [Voiceover] Hannah, I can't do this,

Jesse's the goddamn chef, I make salad.

- [Voiceover] Were out of olive oil.

- [Woman] Gimme that knife.

- [Voiceover] Gees (mumbles)

- [Voiceover] Yeah, yeah.

- I'm dying here.

- [Hannah] Manny!

Do we have any salt left from last night?

- No.

- Shit.

Hey, hey, ah-ah-ah, slow down.

Hey, is there anyone out there yet?

- Careful!

Bread sticks on three please.

- Any word?

- Not yet.

Where can I be most useful?

Jesse must be devastated it's

a good thing you were there.

- Not so good, we split up last night.

(answering machine beeps)

(gentle music)

- Hey, Jess, it's me again.

I really wanna know if you're okay.

(sighs) I can't believe Anabeth is gone.

Look, I love you, just

want you to know that--

(machine beeps)

Hey, Jess, ignore the

previous two ramblings

don't even think about

coming in today, in fact,

if I so much as see you on the,

(doors opens)

ignore this message as well.

Hey.

(scoffs)

- Yeah.

- I'm, I'm so sorry.

- Oh, thank God you're here.

Okay, we've got five orders already.

- Hey, we're okay, right?

- No, I'm sorry, we are not

okay, I know this is like

the definition of bad

timing and everything

but you have absolutely no clue

what is going on between us.

After two years, none.

- Yes I do, I do, I--

- Listen, you have no idea

how to have a relationship.

You need to figure it out.

- You're right.

- Not now!

Jesse, Jesse where are you going?

- To the funeral.

- Yeah, but it's Wednesday,

the funeral is on Sunday.

Besides, there not gonna want you there.

- I know.

Love can make you weep

Can make you run for cover

Roots that spread so deep

Bring life to frozen ground

Something so strong
