Delirious (1991 film): Difference between revisions

As Jack works harder to ingratiate himself to Rachel, he continues to run into Janet. The episodes culminate in a party at the Hedison mansion, where Jack accidentally breaks his typewriter in a fit of pique. Helen Caldwell (Andrea Thompson), a nurse from the hospital (who was having an affair with Dr. Kirkwood until he recently dumped her for Rachel) reveals that Rachel and Janet were switched at birth, with Janet being the actual daughter of Carter Hedison, a twist arranged by Federman. Rachel plans to leave with Jack, just as he realizes how shallow and superficial she is. She is confronted by a gun-wielding Blake, who has been undergoing horrific side effects due to a gradual overdose of medication prescribed by Kirkwood, a scheme orchestrated by Rachel in an effort to take over his major role in the company. Blake mistakenly shoots Janet and she is rushed to the hospital, where Rachel has convinced Kirkwood to kill her in surgery. Jack must race against time to repair his typewriter and write Janet back to health. As Jack begins to write, he is confronted by Robert Wagner's Jack Gates, who is furious at having been sent to Cleveland and shoots Jack (Candy) with a shotgun.
 
Jack wakes up back in New York, on the set of his own show, tended to by Laura and Dennis. He immediately confronts Laura about her foul and domineering behavior, revealing to her that she will be fired from the show . He then tries to track down Louise, who had interviewed for the part of Janet. Jack then confronts the Sherwoods about their plans for the Janet character, as well as their use of Federman, and ensures that they will do things his way after he performs the Heimlich maneuver on Arlene Sherwood who is choking on a sandwich during the argument. He finally finds Louise in a delicatessen, gets her the part of Janet and begins a relationship with her. He also uses the typewriter one last time to send Laura to Cleveland where "she's turning letters on a game show."
