Meanwhile, one man tells the other, a fitness enthusiast, that he has trouble meeting women because he is not a ‘gym guy’ but a shy dreamer. The dreamer, however, meets the bored woman at the rowing machines and conjures up for her a wonderful journey ‘on the Seine.’ As the lights fade, the pair happily row ‘downstream’ on their imaginary journey.”
