} Hey, now THAT's an idea! Only lose the foreign film angle, we need
} something more marketable, like a romantic comedy...
} The Oracle Replies
} A true story of love in unexpected places.
} Starring Meg Ryan as the Supplicant and Tom Hanks as the Incarnation...
} (SCENE: Inside a dark computer lab. The Supplicant, an attractive
} college girl in unwashed jeans and a T-shirt sits hunched over a
} keyboard, typing furiously.)
} SUPPLICANT: (muttering to herself as she types for the benefit of
} illiterate audience members) Oh Oracle most wonderfully wise and
} comforting, whom I love more than life itself... Can we finally meet
} each other, in person, tonight?
} (In a Manhattan high-rise apartment, a well-dressed businessman, the
} Incarnation, leans back and stares at his PC.)
} INCARNATION: (reading) The Oracle requres an answer... (opens file) Ah!
} (quickly starts typing a reply) Yes, of course. Please, tell me where
} you live, and I'll meet you there, my love.
} (Back in the computer lab, the Supplicant's eyes widen with delight.)
} SUPPLICANT: The Oracle replies! (reads message, begins typing) Yes,
} dear, I live in Apartment XX at XXXX Suchandsuch Street. I'll be
} waiting for you. Oh, I can't wait to put my arms around you and hold
} you tight... (sends message)
} (Meanwhile, across town, a Flea-Ridden Bum, played by Adam Sandler, has
} broken into a computer store and is playing with one of the laptops.)
} BUM: Hey, check out this danged Oracle thing... Ooh, I think I'll send
} an askme... (his e-mail program flashes) Hey, The Oracle requires an
} answer! (opens it, stares) All right! (runs out the door)
} Okay, okay, so maybe the Internet Oracle isn't the best medium to hold
} an online romance on...
} You owe the Oracle a more anonymous method of communication. If you
} look anything like Meg Ryan, that is.
