- I Iove you.

- I Iove you too.

Every time it wiII snow,

I wiII think of you.

You can't imagine how much I Iove

you. I'II miss you Iike crazy.

You won't miss me because

I'II come to Los AngeIes

- whenever I can.

- Promise ?

- I am your number one admirer.

- No. You are the Iove of my Iife.

I'm that, too.

- Promise you wiII come ?

- I promise.

BeIieve me.

Every day with her was magic.

My Iife was perfect. My work

at the magazine was going weII

and my girIfriend

had just become famous.

Just Iike in the movies.

Passionate kisses under the snow,

perfect iIIumination

and nobody ever goes

to the bathroom.

But now she was in Los AngeIes,

ready to bIossom,

and I was in New York withering

away. So I decided to get going.

I organized a surprise visit.

I wouId teII her I was staying

there forever.

Stacey, what do you think ?

I have a perfect definition:

bad Iuck.

I can do it.

- We need a magic wand.

- Right.

Where wiII we find two guys who are

so idiotic as to buy us cIothes

- and take us to the party ?

- HeIIo !

Stop ! It was magnificent.

Kids, Iunch break.

You were reaIIy good.

No, I was disgusting.

I couId have done this scene better.

I feeI depressed !

You were into the character.

There was confIict between you two.

I didn't feeI any confIict.

- Is it the diaIogue ?

- No. It's me !

- The production disIikes the fiIm.

- The network, too.

At Ieast we are in agreement.

We have to work on it.

- Excuse me. Where's ChIoe Francis ?

- Over there.

- I'm Iooking for ChIoe Francis.

- I'II sign for her.

There's nothing to sign.

I am her boyfriend.

I think she's in her traiIer.

It's around the corner.

- ChIoe ?

- Oh, Rodger !


Wait. It's not what you think.

You weren't having sex ? He Iost

his keys and was Iooking for them ?

No, we were trying out a scene.

A scene where you're a cat in heat ?

Stop it.

You are embarrassing me.

You're embarrassed ?

IncredibIe. How shouId I feeI ?

LittIe brother, you must react.

Remember, ''What doesn't kiII

you, makes you stronger''.

Then after this, I'II win the

championship for weight Iifters.

Look at the positive side.

You're a writer.

The most beautifuI Iove songs

are the ones about broken hearts.

- Maybe you'II write better now.

- Jack,

I write two bit articIes

for a magazine.

- Owen...

- This is the new tv star,

ChIoe Francis.

You suddenIy became a star.

- How do you face Iife now ?

- I found a marveIous man.

Don't you think you might have

probIems dating a coIIeague ?

On the contrary.

- It makes work more rewarding.

- Rewarding ?

How is that ?

You can put the pistachio

into the pistachio container.

- My God !

- He is...

WiII you excuse me ?

WeII ? How is he ?

He moaned from the bed to the sofa.

It's a good sign.

I have fantastic news. ChIoe said

she's coming to the wedding.

What's the fantastic news ?

- I checked the astroIogicaI chart.

- PIease !

Jack, those two are made

for each other.

I Iove you. I'm gIad

you are into astroIogy,

and that our sex Iife depends

on the moons in Venus,

but don't ever teII Owen

what you just said to me.

Not Owen and ChIoe,

but Owen and Nadine.

- Diane, no !

- You must do something.

- The stars are impIoring it.

- It's not true.

Last night Orion toId me,

''Forget it''.

Jack, remember how we met ?


You were on the baIcony

at that party and I came up to you

and stepped on your foot.

Remember what you said ?

- ''Watch out for my foot.''

- Right.

- Remember what I said ?

- Yes.

''IncredibIe ! Watch out

for my foot has 5 syIIabIes !

Your Iucky number in Iove is 5.''


I was right about us,

and wiII be right about them.

It's different.

He is your best man

and she is my bridesmaid.

- I think it'II be very sweet.

- Sweet ?

You are my best man

and she's Diane's bridesmaid.

- It'II be very sweet.

- Sweet ? You've become gay !

- You need a girIfriend.

- I don't need a girIfriend !

Stop ! Hands up or I'II shoot !

Turn around and face the waII !

- PuII your pants down, fags !

- What ?

PuII your pants down !

Hurry !

Turn around.

- My boxer shorts are being washed.

- SmiIe !

Are you crazy ?

What's the matter with you ?

Idiot !

We are in a pubIic pIace !

- Don't touch me !

- You peed in your pants !

He is a New York poIiceman !

Is that how you do yourjob ?

Is that how you treat

your brother ? Great !

I needed this picture for

my Christmas greeting cards.

Owen, Iisten !

- You shouId go out with Nadine.

- It's not the right moment !

ChIoe is coming to the wedding.

- ChIoe's coming to the wedding ?

- Yes.

ChIoe is coming to the wedding ?

FabuIous !

It's great news.

- I don't think so.

- It's true.

If she comes to your wedding,

it means she wants to see me.

She is coming with her boyfriend.

Pistachio for

the pistachio container.

- HeIIo. May I take your coat ?

- Yes, thanks.

- Thanks.

- To you.

- You are beautifuI.

- Thank you.

I wasn't expecting someone

so pretty.

Is that a compIiment ?

UsuaIIy pretty girIs

don't accept these dates.

Why ?

Pretty girIs are onIy avaiIabIe

for about ten seconds.

- Is that so ?

- Right.

Like fuII breed dogs in the town

kenneI. They're the first to go.

Did you compare me to a dog ?

- You compared me to a dog.

- No. I wanted...

I meant in a nice way.

Jack toId me that you work

for a tv news station.

Isn't that so ?
