When Frank leaves the apartment at the beginning of the movie, the computer is at a table at the end of their bed. After Kathleen checks on him as he leaves the building and runs around to sit down at the computer, it is now on a table facing the living room furniture. See more »
The electrical contractor called. His truck hit a deer last night, so he's not going to be here until tomorrow. And the upstairs shelves are delayed because the shipment of pine we ordered has beetles.
Very good. *Very* good.
And we got a fifty-thousand dollar ticket for construction workers peeing off the roof.
Great, that is great!

This movie was so much better than I expected, which was a simple romantic comedy with predictable "pass each other in the street" scenarios throughout. I was pleasantly surprised to find a love story that touched my heart. Kathleen's vulnerability and pride in her mother made me cry and Joe's sensitivity and devious behavior were so very sweet.
I didn't think that Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan could pull off a romance better than they did in Sleepless In Seattle but I am happy to be mistaken.
