SYNOPSIS: Women marry men and hope they will change, but they never do. Men marry women and hope they will never change, but they always do.
SETTING: Dot.com Mansion facing the sea.
CAST: Woman: Meryl Streep
Man: Randy Quaid
QUAID: He was attracted to her because she had an indestructible spirit.
STREEP: She admired him because he respected and understood liberated women.
QUAID: He loved her because she was an intelligent, independent woman. She wasn't like other women he had known, who turned into submissive robots while trying to please their men.
He thought he loved her because she was an independent woman. But his love subtly demanded that she remold her personality to satisfy his needs, all the while demanding that she remain the independent woman he loved.
STREEP: She cried, knowing she was losing her free will to sustain his love. She felt her independence slipping away, becoming less resilient each day.
QUAID: He mourned the loss of the independent woman he had so loved.
STREEP: She tried to protest, but when she opened her mouth to speak, the only sounds from her lips were "buzz, buzz; click, click, click; buzz, click."
THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE AND 10 CURTAIN CALLS.
