A modernisation of Edmond Rostands "Cyrano De Bergerac". C.D. Bales is a fire chief, who just happens to have an enormous nose. He hires a new fire-fighter, Chris, who is handsome, and knows his hoses, but is useless when it comes to women. Roxanne is an astronomer who has just arrived in town. She catches the eye of Chris, and he asks C.D. to help him woo her. Little does Chris know that C.D. is mad about Roxanne, but hasn't found the right way to tell her - yet. Written by

Roxanne dreamed of a handsome, intelligent, romantic man. C.D. Bales is two out of three... but looks aren't everything!

In the scene in which C.D. is dropping the second letter into the mail he is clearly holding a copy of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

In explaining quarks to C.D., Roxanne (an Astrophysics PhD student who should know better) mentions that there are six types of quarks and that the "top" and "bottom" are the most common kinds. She meant "up" and "down" (which form protons and neutrons). Experimental evidence for the predicted "top" quark was not announced until 1995, 8 years after the film's writing. See more
Dixie! Hi, how you doing, girl? Yeah, I'm on my way. I'll be there in about five minutes. I'm bringing it! I've only had it a year and a half, I told you I'd return it. OK. So long. Talk to you later. All right. All right. Bye.
