A Fishbowl Full of Glass Eyes (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


During grocery shopping, Walden meets a British woman named Zoey . Jake, who heard his father talk about how rich Walden is, helps the latter where he can, fully intending to get paid for it. He even advises Walden to ask her out, an offer that Zoey gladly accepts. When Jakes asks his new "boss" if he owns a yacht, he tells him that he doesn't like displays of extreme wealth and, at the same time, reveals that he already got a private jet. He then proceeds to give Jake 250,000 frequent-flyer miles, having no use for them. At the night of the date, Alan recommends that Walden takes off his wedding ring, as it indicates that he still has feelings for Bridget. Walden gives the ring to Alan and decides to move on. During the date, he behaves oddly, mentioning his suicide attempt and the exact time that has passed since he and Bridget broke up, prompting Zoey to tell him that he is still in love with his ex-wife and isn't ready for dating yet. Ironically, Walden calls Bridget after the date only to hear her agree with Zoey.

Meanwhile, Alan is desperate to earn some money and tries to set up a Ponzi scheme with different credit cards. Just as he is about to ask Walden to loan him some money, Berta tells him that Walden likes him because he is the only one that doesn't want anything from him. Alan agrees with Berta and visits a pawn shop to make some money out of his old Gateway computer and the diamond cufflinks Evelyn gave him . As Sid , the pawn shop owner, rejects the items, he presents him a Steuben crystal vase. To his horror, he accidentally breaks it when he learns that it is worth $1,200. After receiving Walden's wedding ring (calling it "My precious") that is made out of rhodium and platinum, he returns to the pawn shop and freaks out over its value. When he comes back to the house, he joins a sad Walden at the beach, who asks him for his ring. It is revealed that Alan didn't pawn the ring, fully knowing that Walden would want it back in the end. This makes Walden separate from it permanently by throwing it in the ocean. Alan storms into the water to search for it after Walden leaves. Upon returning to the house, he confesses his intentions to Walden, who then tells him that he could have asked him for money, which he just gives away, as he doesn't believe in loaning it. Alan declines the offer for the sake of their friendship and even agrees to pay rent. He then asks Walden if he would have agreed to give him $100,000. When Walden agrees, Alan goes back into the ocean, being furious at himself. Just at that moment, Jake, who used Walden's frequent-flyer miles, calls from Paris, not knowing where he is.

Title quotation from: Sid, the pawn shop owner, describing the items he has in his storage unit.
