- So how many kids do we want?

- What's the statistical norm?

You and your statistics.

- 1.2.

- Okay, then I want 2.2.

- And I want them to look like you.

- Poor kids.

If I can get you off the computer

tomorrow, I'll buy you that ring.

- Is this gonna be a real wedding?

- As opposed to a fake one?

Sam, you've already been through

the big ceremony.

That was the fake one.

This is the real one.

You can have any kind of wedding

you want. Underwater. In a sauna.

Horseback.

Naked skydiving?

I've not been in New York

long enough to know many people.

- Except me.

- Well, you're invited.

And my friend Graham upstairs.

It won't be long before you know

half the people in New York.

People like you...

but I found you first.

You're the best thing

that ever happened to me.

Hold on a second.

- Sam, it's your ex-wife.

- What?

It's Lisa.

Because... I'm hanging up now.

I'm sorry. She shouldn't call here.

It's where you live. She's entitled.

Don't answer it.

- Why does she do this?

- Talk to her. You're already up.

I'll get that.

Would youpick up the phone, please?

Don't do this to me.

- Afteryou left this afternoon...

- Can we talk about this tomorrow?

- You come andsleep with me...

- Allie, shut that thing off.

Yousaid you were going to call.

Yousaid you'd call.

Okay... goodbye.

I take it back. She's not entitled.

I didn't go over there

intending to sleep with her, Allie.

She's depressed. She heard we were

getting married. She was drunk.

- I don't want to hearthis!

- She makes me feel guilty.

- It won'thappen again.

- Am Isupposed to trustyou now?.

- It's 4 a. m.!

- It's me, Graham.

- Allie?

- I'm sorry...

Sam left. I told him to.

I can't be alone tonight...

so I came up here.

Allie, I let you sleep.

It's about 10.

I've got an important meeting.

- I'm sorry, I'm a little late.

- No, it's worth the wait.

You can redefine your product

on-screen with my software.

This is a marketing tool

that no one else has.

- Who do I get to run it?

- Training is included in the quote.

The quote...

That's the one thing I haven't seen.

Best for last.

You'll find that's reasonable...

as a ballpark.

Here's where

I was thinking of playing.

It makes sense.

I made a phone call

to your former partner.

It was not a friendly split.

I did all the work.

She took all the credit and

she didn't like me telling her so.

In the settlement you got all the

hardware and a rent-controlled flat.

That means your overhead is minimal,

as is your client list.

I could improve that if you're

as good as you say you are.

But that

is the only way to prove it.

- I could go for something...

- No, don't embarrass yourself.

That's my final offer. Of course,

if you'd like to think about it...

I'll get this.

- It'll be on my expense report.

- I look forward to it.

No messages.

What is this? "You're Nobody

Till Somebody Loves You. "

It's just living alone and cooking

for one. It's just too depressing.

There are worse things

than being on your own.

- I should go home.

- You came here for a reason.

You think I'd let some guy

interfere with my acting career?

If I had a career...

or a guy to interfere with it.

- You'll find someone again.

- Maybe.

The point is,

if I don't... I don't.

- I know. I can do it on my own.

- Absolutely.

I'll just get a room-mate.

You could always call him.

Not if I have a room-mate.

PROFESSIONAL PREFERRED

The managers

couldn't know you lived there.

It's rent-stabilized,

so you couldn't come on the lease.
