Meet Joe Black
Multiply it by infinity, and take it to the depth of forever, and you will still have barely a glimpse of what I'm talking about. I thought I was going to sneak away tonight. What a glorious night. Every face I see is a memory.
It may not be a perfectly perfect memory. Sometimes we had our ups and downs. But we're all together, and you're mine for a night. And I'm going to break precedent and tell you my one candle wish: Don't they go by in a blink?
It's not what you say about Drew, it's what you don't say. Maybe you're not listening. Oh yes, I am. There's not an ounce of excitement. Not a whisper of a thrill. This relationship has all the passion of a pair of tit mice. I want you to get swept away out there. I want you to levitate.
Meet Joe Black - Wikipedia
I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a Dervish. Be deliriously happy or at least leave yourself open to be. I shall do my utmost. I know it's a cornball thing, but love is passion.
Someone you can't live without. I say fall head over heels.
Find someone you can love like crazy, and who'll love you the same way back. How do you you find 'em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this.
But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. It's hard to let go, isn't it? Yes it is, Bill. Should I be afraid?
Not a man like you. Given Bill's "competence, experience, and wisdom", Death says that for as long as Bill will be his guide on Earth, Bill will not have to die.
Making up a name on the spot, Death is introduced to the family as "Joe Black". Bill's best efforts to navigate the next few days, knowing them now to be his last, fail to keep events from going rapidly out of his control. Drew is secretly conspiring with a man bidding for Parrish Communications. He capitalizes on Bill's strange behavior and unexplained reliance on Joe to convince the board of directors to vote Bill out as Chairman, using information given to him inadvertently by Bill's son-in-law, Quince, to push through approval for the merger which William had decided to oppose.
Susan is confused by the appearance of Joe, believing him to be the young man from the coffee shop, but eventually falls deeply in love with him. Joe is now under the influence of human desires and becomes attracted to her as well.
After they make love, Joe asks Susan, "What do we do now? As his last birthday arrives, Bill appeals to Joe to recognize the meaning of true love and all it encompasses, especially honesty and sacrifice. Joe comes to understand that he must set aside his own desire and allow Susan to live her life.
He also helps Bill regain control of his company, exposing Drew's underhanded business dealings to the board by claiming to be an agent of the Internal Revenue Service and threatening to put Drew in jail. At the party Bill makes his peace with his daughters. Susan tells Joe that she has loved him ever since that day in the coffee shop. Joe realises that Susan loves the unknown man, not him, and the realization crushes him slightly.
Mastering his emotions powerfully he balks at telling Susan who he really is, although she seems to intuit his true identity.
