Scene 10

Scene 10

  • Through voice-over, we hear Charlotte leave Bob a voicemail. She's meeting Charlie Brown and the boys at a club called Orange at 10:00. She'll fax Bob a map, and she hopes he'll meet up with them.
  • Fax him a map? Did this movie come out in 2003 or 1993?
  • Bob rolls up at Orange. Turns out it's a strip club. He waits for Charlotte, and looks super-uncomfortable.
  • Charlie Brown gets a lap dance in the other room. When Charlotte shows up, they're both like, "We need to get out of here ASAP," and they leave.
  • Bob and Charlotte run through the streets of Tokyo hand-in-hand. Why are they running? Your guess is as good as ours. A billboard for Suntory featuring Bob rolls past. They soak it in.
  • They arrive at the Park Hyatt, where Kelly's warbling through "Nobody Does It Better, "a.k.a. the theme from The Spy Who Loved Me, in the bar.
  • It's worth pointing out that The Spy Who Loved Me features Roger Moore as James Bond. Sorry, Bob.
  • Bob and Charlotte slowly walk past, trying to go undetected. Charlotte wears Bob's sport coat. Once they pass out of Kelly's sight, they start running again. Charlotte laughs hysterically.
  • Cut to Charlotte in bed. It's the middle of the night, and she can't sleep.
  • She moves to the couch, and sits there, staring off into space, when a note is slid under her door. It's from Bob. He wants to know if she's awake.
  • Bob and Charlotte hang out in Bob's room, watching an old movie and splitting a bottle of wine. They reminisce about the first time they saw each other.
  • Charlotte thinks it was in the bar, when Bob was wearing a tux and mascara after a shoot; she gives him a hard time about the mascara. He tells her that it was actually in the elevator, and gives her a hard time about how little she smiles.
  • After the movie, they lay in bed and talk. It's not romantic or sexual, but it is really intimate. Charlotte says she's stuck; she doesn't know what she's supposed to do with her life.
  • They also talk about marriage. Charlotte wants to know if it gets easier. Bob says he and Lydia used to have fun, but kids change everything, not necessarily in a bad way. Your old life disappears the day they're born, but they're also your favorite people you'll ever meet.
  • Bob reassures Charlotte that she's not hopeless. She's curled up, not exactly in the fetal position. He puts a hand on her feet. Aw.
