A reincarnated man unknowingly falls in love with his own daughter from his previous life. Once he realizes this, he tries to end their relationship before angels erase his memory.
Ryan O'Neal was cast as Philip Train. Perry Howze and Randy Howze described Philip Train as "a noble character, the last gentleman roaming the earth, because he has respected Corinne Jeffries (Cybill Shepherd) and her love for her late husband, who was also his best friend, so much, that he has never tried to impose himself on her. He doesn't want to jeopardize their friendship. This kind of character doesn't exist in 1988, but we want him back in the world." The film's press kit states: "(Ryan) O'Neal endowed Philip (Train) with the strength, vulnerability, and comedic sensitivity needed to ennoble this endearing underdog, a character who gives true modern meaning to the word 'gentleman', as he waits for the woman he quietly loves, to someday take serious notice of him."
Louie. There's something I have to tell you.
Louie Jeffries: Now?
Philip Train: I'm in love with Corinne.
Louie Jeffries: I know.
Alex spills ice cubes on the sofa, but they have disappeared by the time he has finished recalling Louie's and Corinne's wedding (there's not enough time for them to have melted, although he could have been clearing up while we weren't looking).
