To be rescued, you have to let someone help you.
Greg has had a crush on tough, resourceful Sue since high school, but getting close to her has proven impossible. She spends so much time dealing with her alcoholic parents that the first chance Greg gets to talk to her is when he's serving her with foreclosure papers. If he can find a way to keep her from losing her family's farm, maybe she'll learn to like him.
But Sue doesn't believe Greg could care about her. Either he pities her, which is humiliating, or he wants to get into her pants, which is disgusting. If she could just find someone who would love her for who she was and not what she could do for them.
