Dedication

summary from imdb.com:

Henry Roth: obsessive-compulsive, somewhat misanthropic, a writer of children’s books. His illustrator and only friend, Rudy, dies after a fabulously successful collaboration on “Marty, the Beaver.” Henry is under contract to produce another Marty book for Christmas sales. His publisher, Arthur Planck, assigns penniless, lovelorn illustrator Lucy Reilly to work with Henry. She’s sought by her ex-boyfriend Jeremy, who dumped her two years ago but shows up apologetic, having dedicated his new book to her. She and Henry go to a house on the shore to work. Will love bloom amid the rocks, or is Henry a bump on Lucy’s road to Jeremy? Rudy’s voice, from the grave, gives Henry counsel.

Abortion/Life Content:

Mandy Moore: Now that I’m in, you’re really gonna have to try harder than that to knock me off my game.

Billy Crudup: You see our waitress over there? She wants to be an actress. She’s got that air of entitlement mixed with desperation. She doesn’t have the looks, though. She doesn’t even have the talent, but, like an old donkey, she’s been at it so long, she’s not fit to try to do anything else. She lies to her mom. She’s embarrassed to tell her about losing the job for the big Palmolive commercial, but, fingers crossed, she’s got an audition for Blockbuster Videos. She had an abortion once. She still cries about it sometimes, even though she saved that thing from an agonizing life of eating leftover mashed potatoes and watching its Mom lose jobs like Palmolive commercials. She’s got about three ovarian eggs left. In addition to being less interesting and much less attractive… you’re so much more pathetic than she is. You’re not in.
