Six Days Seven Nights

Synopsis: Taking a romantic tropical island week off with her boyfriend, an ambitious, decisive New York girl agrees to help her magazine out by covering a story on a neighboring island. The only plane available is piloted by a laid-back heavy drinker with whom she shares a mutual dislike. But she has no choice and he can't refuse the money. When the plane crash-lands on an uninhabited island with little chance of rescue they both wish they had made other arrangements - at least to start with.

[Siren Wailing]

[People Chattering]

Hey! Aah.

- Morning. Oh.

- [Phone Ringing]

- Thank you.

- No, thank you.

Hello? Hi.

I'm across the street.


No. No, no, there's nothing wrong with

the ad layouts. I checked them myself.

Marjorie just must've gotten

the months wrong again.

Yeah. Okay.

Have you talked to Laslo yet?

I don't care

if he's upset.

Call Peter back and tell him the

fashion layouts have to be four pages.

Not seven, not six,

not five. Four.

That's because

we changed photographers.

[Man On Phone] You must be kidding.

L... I doubled-checked everything.

- What's wrong with the ad layouts?

- What's wrong with the ad layouts, Leo?

I'll tell you what's wrong.

Practically everything, because

they're the wrong ad layouts.

- Marjorie, I have no idea...

- Why am I standing here looking

at 30 pages of wrong layouts?

I'll tell you why.

Because someone...

Leo... didn't

do their job!

Okay, the copy on the cover

reads "Office Love Affairs:

How to Get Him

and Your Raise."

- Good.

- Yeah?

[Man] Okay, look at me.

Good. Come in a little closer.

- [Camera Lens Shuttering]

- Okay. Right here.

Great. Good.

I think we got it.

Carry on.

Papaya diet?

Big problem. They're talking

about changing the fruit.

- What type of fruit?

- I don't know.

They said kiwi or something.

- I don't like kiwi.

- These came for you. They're from Frank.

My goodness.

He is so sweet. He was in London.

- Very exotic and expensive.

- [Pleasant Sigh]

"Can't wait to see you. It's felt like

an eternity." How long's he been gone?

- Two days.

- Two days?

- Yes.

- "Meet me here at 7:30."

Ooh, good choice.

"Bring doll"?

Doll. He does this kind

of thing all the time.

Hula dolls,

Polynesian restaurant.

Now just

what are you up to?

- It's all part of the surprise.

- Thank you.

- Surprise?

- Uh-huh.

- Sur... You're not breaking

up with me, are you?

- No.

Okay. Are you sure? Because%69 of all

relationships break up in restaurants.

We're not breaking up.

In fact, I want to increase

the romance in our lives.

- You do?

- Uh-huh.

- First, close your eyes.

- Now?

- Close them.

- Okay.

Now remember all the times

you said we never go anywhere...

and we're always working

and we never have any fun?

- Well, yeah.

- Well, open your eyes

and look where I'm taking you.

- Um...

- Come on.

- Oh, you're kidding.

- You and me in two weeks.

- In two weeks? I can't.

- Oh-Oh, you can.

- I can?

- Uh-huh. I cleared it with Marjorie.

You did?

Oh, you're a sneak.

Yeah. Six days

and seven nights...

on the secluded tropical island

paradise of Makatea.

- Yeah. Yeah. We arrived 50 minutes late.

- Oh, is that a problem?

No, no, that's fine.

Uh, I'll tell you what.

Why don't I go find the bags, and you,

you get to go find the charter, okay?

- I do?

- Yeah, I'll see you in ten minutes.

- All right. Okay.

- Sweetie.

- Love you.

- Love you.

- Uh, excuse me.

- Aah! You son of a b*tch!

You miserable piece

of rat sh*t.

Could you help me?

I'm looking for Tropical Charters.

- You going to Makatea?

- Yes.

Well, we'll be ready

in ten... 20 minutes.

But this... this isn't

the plane?

- What?

- The plane.

Where's its mommy?

Oh. Tropical's plane

is laid up in Fiji.

We're fillin' in.

You're in luck. I'm your pilot.

Uh... [Nervous Chuckle]

No. I can't...

No. I, um... I can't go in this.

It's, uh... It's broken.

No, it's not broken.

It's being maintained.

- This is my plane.

- Uh-huh.

This is the De Haviland Beaver.

This is one of the safest,

most reliable planes ever built.

Sweetie, there a problem?

Uh, yes.

He, um... He seems to think

we're gonna go in this old thing.

- What?

- Uh, I think... I think

we could find another charter.

You won't find one.

There's a boat leaves from the port.

It takes three days.

- Honey. Frank.

- All right, all right.

Sweetie, I'm sure

the plane is perfectly safe.

And I'm sure the pilot

is a trained professional.

- He is the pilot.

- He...

Well, if you're goin',

it'll be 20... 30 minutes.

- Gotta get some oil.

- Oil. He's gonna get some oil now?

- Need help with this luggage?

- No.

- No, we're good.

All right,

everybody tied down?

Listen, are these

really necessary?

Only if we crash.

- Hi.

- Everybody, this is Angelica,

our flight service director.


Thank you. Hi.


Sorry. Excuse me. Ooh.

- Oh, I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Hello. Are you guys

going to Makatea?

- We hope.

- Oh, you'll love it.

Are you from the States?

- I lived there for a while too.

It's very fun.

Hey, Quinn, look.

Look what I got.

- Check it out.

- What's that, baby?

It's a bathing suit, silly.

- [Laughing]

- I thought it was an eye patch.

Welcome to Makatea.

Here we are.
