Plot[ edit ] Billionaire media mogul Bill Parrish is considering a merger between his company and another media giant, and is about to celebrate his 65th birthday with an elaborate party planned by his eldest daughter, Allison.
His youngest daughter, Susan, a resident in internal medicineis in a relationship with one of Bill's board members, Drew. She is considering marriage, but Bill can tell she's not passionately in love. When she asks for the short version of his impassioned speech, he simply says, "Stay open. Susan meets a vibrant young man at a coffee shop. He takes an interest in her and tells her that lightning may strike.
She is enamored but parts without getting his name. Unbeknownst to her, the man is struck by multiple cars in a possibly fatal accident. Death arrives at Bill's home in the uninjured body of the young man, explaining that Bill's impassioned speech has piqued his interest.
Given Bill's "competence, experience, and wisdom", Death says that for as long as Bill will be his guide on Earth, Bill will not have to die.
Making up a name on the spot, Death is introduced to the family as "Joe Black". Bill's best efforts to navigate the next few days, knowing them now to be his last, fail to keep events from going rapidly out of his control. Drew is secretly conspiring with a man bidding for Parrish Communications. He capitalizes on Bill's strange behavior and unexplained reliance on Joe to convince the board of directors to vote Bill out as Chairman, using information given to him inadvertently by Bill's son-in-law, Quince, to push through approval for the merger which William had decided to oppose.
Susan is confused by the appearance of Joe, believing him to be the young man from the coffee shop, but eventually falls deeply in love with him. I know it's a cornball thing, but love is passion.
A Case For Greatness: MEET JOE BLACK
Someone you can't live without. I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who'll love you the same way back.
How do you you find 'em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. I thought I was going to sneak away tonight. What a glorious night. Every face I see is a memory. It may not be a perfectly perfect memory. Sometimes we had our ups and downs. But we're all together, and you're mine for a night.
And I'm going to break precedent and tell you my one candle wish: Don't they go by in a blink?
It's hard to let go, isn't it? Yes it is, Bill.

Should I be afraid? Not a man like you. How's your working going? While you were shaving this morning, you weren't just shaving, you weren't just shaving.
What do you mean? You were hatching ideas, making plans, arriving at decisions, right? Yeah, I guess so.
So you understand the concept. While part of you is busy doing one thing, another part of you is doing another, perhaps even attending to the problems of your work. So you understand the concept, Bill. Now multiply that by infinity, take that to the depths of forever, and you still barely have a glimpse of what I'm taking about.
I want you to know how much I love you, that you've given a meaning to my life that I had no right to expect, that no one can ever take from me. I love you so much.
And I want you to promise me something. I don't want you to ever worry about me. And if anything should happen, I'm gonna be okay.
