The Rebound

Synopsis: Sandy, upon discovering her husband's infidelity while watching her son's birthday video, leaves the suburbs and moves into the city. She gets an apartment that's above a coffee house where she befriends one of the workers, Aram, a guy whose wife only married him so she could get a green card. Aram's family thinks he's wasting his life and education by working in the coffee house. Soon after moving into the apartment, Sandy hires Aram to be her nanny while she takes on work for the first time since her children were born. It isn't long when Aram and Sandy find they get along wonderfully and start to date. But the question is: is their relationship real or is it, in fact, just a rebound for both of them?

Capitalists live in the city.

And now we do too.

What is transvestite?

It is a person who has a penis

and a vagina and they live in the city.

That's not what it is.

Can you hold it a little longer?

Welcome to New York City.

We're only here because

our parents are getting a divorce.

stop smiling or

I'm taking you to Oprah.

-- Sadie.

-- You know I've read about this.

It's fairly typical behavior for

children of divorced.

How about taking the bags?

Mommy, check this out! We're

writing our names.

Oh God!

You can't move around for

the rest of your life.

It's only been three weeks, mom.

Give me some time.

Oh, such a smart girl.

She never graduated college,

and you hated her.

But the French, she spoke it so beautiful.

She was from there.

She was a Finklestein,

It is hard not to love a Finklestein.

Anyway, I spoke to your cousin Lou,

and she arranged a job interview,

Women's Center, where she used to work,

Get you out of your punk.

I have a job,

at the coffee shop.

Oh, it's depressing and you're a college graduate, Aram,

for crying out loud.

You'll finally put that Ladies Studies major of yours

to good use.

It's a minor, Dad

and it's called sociology.

BA from Stanford

Journalism from Northwestern.

You do realize that it's

just a stat checking job?

I've been raising two kids, and

I'm divorced.

And I'm sure I'll be good at this

because I'm very organized.

I love sports,

well not hockey, so much.

You see, once the kids were born

I decided to stay home for a while.

Coz you know, babies

take up a lot of time.

Maybe you don't know.

Anyway, eventually they went to school

and I started having a little time in my hands.

And compiled these

stat books,

It's time, and a great

satellite TV package.

Aram Finklestein, that's

a Jewish name, right?

What are your feelings

about women, Aram?

Are you kidding?

I think you're great up until...

Recently I was planning on spending the rest

of my life with a woman.

Not that I wanted to spend it

with a man, I just ...

One experience with a woman,

kinda took away my faith in love, and I guess, everything.

Aram, I know you took some Women's studies

courses in College.

But other than that, do you have any kind of experience

that you think might have prepared you for this job?

I used to buy

tampons for my mother.
