Derek is in love. Deeply, hopelessly in love. He wants it all - marriage, kids, growing old on a beach in Costa Rica. Jenny is the One. But Jenny has other plans, and they may or may not include Derek. He'll try anything to win her - even soliciting advice from an alien who shows up in his hometown.
