- 1. "Chapter one."
- 2. "He adored New York City.
He idolized it all out of proportion."
- 3. Uh, no. Make that "He romanticized it
all out of proportion."
- 4. "To him,
no matter what the season was...
- 5. this was still a town
that existed in black and white...
- 6. and pulsated to the great tunes
of George Gershwin."
- 7. Uh... no. Let me start this over.
- 8. "Chapter one."
- 9. "He was too romantic about Manhattan,
as he was about everything else."
- 10. "He thrived on the hustle, bustle
of the crowds and the traffic."
- 11. "To him, New York
meant beautiful women...
- 12. and street-smart guys
who seemed to know all the angles."
- 13. Ah, corny. Too corny
for a man of my taste.
- 14. Let me... try and make it more profound.
- 15. "Chapter one. He adored New York City."
- 16. "To him, it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture."
- 17. "The same lack of integrity to cause so
many people to take the easy way out...
- 18. was rapidly turning the town
of his dreams..."
- 19. No, it's gonna be too preachy. L mean,
face it, I wanna sell some books here.
- 20. "Chapter one. He adored New York City...
- 21. although to him it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture."
- 22. "How hard it was to exist in a society
desensitized by drugs, loud music...
- 23. television, crime, garbage..."
- 24. Too angry. L don't wanna be angry.
- 25. "Chapter one."
- 26. "He was as tough and romantic
as the city he loved."
- 27. "Behind his black-rimmed glasses
was the coiled sexual power
- 28. of a jungle cat."
- 29. l love this.
- 30. "New York was his town
and it always would be."
- 31. I think the essence of art is to provide
a kind ofworking-through situation...
- 32. so that you can get in touch
with feelings you didn't know you had.
- 33. Talent is luck.
The important thing in life is courage.
- 34. They've had this argument
for 20 years.
- 35. Listen to this example.
- 36. If the four of us are walking home over
the bridge and a person was drowning...
- 37. would we have the nerve...
- 38. Would one of us have the nerve to dive
into the icy water and save them?
- 39. It's a key question.
- 40. I, of course, can't swim,
so I never have to face it.
- 41. Oh... God.
- 42. Which of us?
- 43. - You want a little more?
- 44. Mm. Oh, man. That is so great.
- 45. You don't smoke.
- 46. I know I don't smoke. I don't inhale
because it gives you cancer, but...
- 47. I look so incredibly handsome with
a cigarette that I can't not hold one.
- 48. - You like the way I look?
- 49. Provocative.
- 50. - I'm getting through to you?
- Yup. You have to excuse me a sec.
- 51. - Jesus, she's gorgeous.
- 52. But she's 17.
- 53. I'm 42 and she's 17.
- 54. I'm... I'm older than her father.
Can you believe that?
- 55. I'm dating a girl
wherein I can beat up her father.
- 56. That's the first time
that ever occurred in my life.
- 57. - He's drunk.
- You're drunk. You should never drink.
- 58. Did I tell you... that my ex-wife...
- 59. - Who, Tina?
- Mm-mm. My second ex-wife...
- 60. is writing a book about
our marriage and the break-up.
- 61. - That's really tacky.
- It's really depressing, you know.
- 62. She's gonna give all those details out,
all my little idiosyncrasies...
- 63. and my quirks and mannerisms, and...
- 64. Mm, mm, not that I have
anything to hide because, you know...
- 65. But there are a few disgusting
little moments that I regret.
- 66. It's just gossip.
Gossip is the new pornography.
- 67. - You should never let me drink.
- I know.
- 68. You should never let yourselfdrink.
- 69. We oughta go
'cause I've got an exam tomorrow.
- 70. Oh, do you? The kid's gotta get up...
- 71. She's got homework.
I'm dating a girl who does homework.
- 72. What is it? What's the matter with you?
- 73. You... you... Where are you now?
Your mind is like a million miles away.
- 74. I have something I wanna say.
- 75. I, uh, I just didn't know
quite how to... get into it.
- 76. Um, I, uh...
- 77. About seven or eight weeks ago
I went to this dinner party...
- 78. and I met a woman there.
- 79. And...
- 80. And I've got
kind of involved with her.
- 81. You're kidding?
- 82. It started out very casually.
I mean, we had lunch a couple of times.
- 83. And now it's, you know,
- 84. it's getting out of hand
and I don't know what to do about it.
- 85. I mean, I'm... It's scary.
- 86. Well, who is she? What are the details?
- 87. - Well, she's a journalist.
- 88. She's very...
- 89. - Is she married, too?
- No, no.
- 90. - She's very beautiful.
- 91. She's very kind of
nervous, high-strung, illusive.
- 92. Great. It sounds wonderful.
- 93. Oh, she is wonderful.
I mean, she's on my mind all the time.
- 94. What are you telling me?
That your marriage is...
- 95. I mean, how serious is it?
- 96. I don't know, but it's pretty serious.
- 97. But you haven't
said anything to Emily?
- 98. No! God, no.
- 99. It's amazing. I'm stunned
because, of all the people I know...
- 100. I always thought for sure that you
and Emily had one of the best marriages.
- 101. We do! I mean, I love her.
- 102. - But you're seeing...
- I know it.
- 103. But in all the years
that we've been married...
- 104. I've had, what... one or two
very minor things with other women.
- 105. I mean, very... I hate the whole idea.
- 106. I hate myself
when I'm doing this sort of thing.
- 107. But this is just, you know...
This is not like that.
- 108. It's terrible. Listen,
you shouldn't ask me for advice.
- 109. When it comes to relationships, I'm the
winner of the August Strindberg Award.
- 110. Well, I don't think 17 is too young.
Beside that, she's a bright girl.
- 111. You'll get no argument from me.
I think she's terrific.
- 112. He could do a lot worse.
He has done a lot worse.
- 113. I just think he's wasting his life.
- 114. He writes that crap for television.
- 115. Yale, have you ever thought
any more about having kids?
- 116. Oh, my God. Kids.
- 117. Listen, I've gotta get this book
finished. It's never gonna get done.
- 118. I've gotta get the money
to get this magazine started, huh?
- 119. Kids...
- 120. We always talk about moving to
Connecticut. You could do it there.
- 121. - Connecticut.
- 122. I can't go to Connecticut.
It's not practical.
- 123. All my stuff's here.
- 124. My work's here.
It's just the wrong time.
- 125. What about Isaac?
We can't abandon him, you know?
- 126. He can't function anywhere
other than New York, you know that.
- 127. Very Freudian.
- 128. Mm-mm...
- 129. Are you writing a book
on our marriage?
- 130. Leave me alone.
- 131. - Are you writing about our break-up?
- We've said all that needs to be said.
- 132. I know you are because
I have a friend at Random House.
- 133. - I'm free to do as I please.
- Yeah, but this affects me.
- 134. So you're gonna tell everybody
everything? Our life, our sexual life?
- 135. Do you spy on me?
- 136. No. I was at a party and a guy said
he read an advance chapter...
- 137. of a book my wife was writing,
and it was hot stuff. He said that!
- 138. - I spilled wine on my pants.
- I don't care to discuss it.
- 139. - You won't discuss it. How's Willie?
- 140. Well, give me some details. Does he
play baseball? Wear dresses? What?
- 141. He doesn't wear dresses.
- 142. You'll find out the details
when it's your turn to see him.
- 143. Don't write this book.
It's a humiliating experience.
- 144. It's an honest account of our break-up.
- 145. Jesus, everybody that knows us
is gonna know everything.
- 146. Look at you. You're so threatened.
- 147. I'm not threatened because I was not
the immoral, psychotic, promiscuous one.
- 148. I hope I didn't leave out anything.
- 149. Are you telling me that... that I'm...
that you had three affairs before me?
- 150. That's really hard to believe.
- 151. When I was your age, I was still being
tucked in by my grandparents.
- 152. Well, they were really immature boys.
They were nothing like you.
- 153. No? What does that mean?
- 154. Well, I told you before.
I think I'm in love with you.
- 155. Hey, don't get carried away, OK?
- 156. This is... This is a terrific thing -
move over - you know.
- 157. And we're having a great time,
but you're a kid
- 158. and I never want you to forget that.
- 159. You're gonna meet
a lot of terrific men in your life...
- 160. and, you know,
I want you to enjoy me.
- 161. My wry sense of humor
and astonishing sexual technique...
- 162. but never forget that you've...
you've got your whole life ahead of you.
- 163. Don't you have any feelings for me?
- 164. How can you ask that?
I've got nothing but feelings for you...
- 165. but you don't wanna get hung up
with one person at your age.
- 166. It's... charming, you know.
- 167. Erotic.
No question about that.
- 168. As long as the cops don't burst in,
- 169. I think we're gonna break
a couple of records.
- 170. But you can't, uh, you can't...
It's not a good thing.
- 171. You should think of me sort of
as a detour on the highway of life.
- 172. - So get dressed because you gotta go.
- Don't you want me to stay over?
- 173. I don't want you to get in the habit...
- 174. because first you stay one night,
then two nights,
- 175. and then you're living here.
- 176. - That doesn't sound too bad.
- It's not a great idea.
- 177. You won't like it, believe me.
I'm tough to get along with.
- 178. Tomorrow we'll go to the cinema and I'll
show you the Veronica Lake movie. OK?
- 179. OK. Veronica Lake's
the pin-up with the red hair?
- 180. No, that's Rita Hayworth.
Do we have to go over this all the time?
- 181. - Rita who?
- Rita Hayworth. Are you joking with me?
- 182. Course I'm joking! You think I'm unaware
of any event pre-Paul McCartney.
- 183. - I find these photographs interesting.
- Yes, so do I.
- 184. - Do you ever use the camera I got you?
- Oh, yeah, I use it all the time.
- 185. I was taking pictures in our drama
class. It's fun, really neat.
- 186. You know you sound like
the mouse in Tom And Jerry.
- 187. Are you kidding me?
- 188. - You should talk! You've a whiny voice!
- Sh! You sound like the mouse.
- 189. Well, thanks.
- 190. - I know, I'm a whiner.
- 191. - What are you doing here?
- 192. - How long have you been here?
- We were talking about you.
- 193. That's hilarious. Wh... What... Were you
walking around behind us or what?
- 194. - How are you? Hi.
- Good. That's funny. We were talking...
- 195. We're gonna go to
the Shakespeare In The Park thing.
- 196. Oh, yeah, right. I wanna do that.
- 197. Oh, this is my friend.
Mary Wilke, Isaac Davis and Tracy.
- 198. - How do you do?
- Hi. Nice to meet you.
- 199. You, too.
- 200. - Hello.
- 201. We were downstairs.
We saw the photography exhibition.
- 202. - Absolutely incredible.
- It's really good.
- 203. Really?
- 204. - The photographs downstairs?
- 205. Great. Absolutely great. Did you?
- 206. No, I really felt
it was very derivative.
- 207. To me it looked like it was
straight out of Diane Arbus,
- 208. but it had none of the wit.
- 209. Well, we didn't like it
as much as the Plexiglas sculpture.
- 210. You liked the Plexiglas?
- 211. You didn't like the Plexiglas either?
- 212. Ah, that's interesting.
Nah, no... uh-uh.
- 213. It was a lot better than that...
that steel cube. Did you see it?
- 214. - Oh, yeah. That was the worst.
- Now that was brilliant to me.
- 215. - The cube was brilliant?
- 216. To me it was very textural.
You know what I mean?
- 217. It was perfectly integrated
and it had a...
- 218. a marvelous kind of negative capability.
- 219. The rest of the stuffwas bullshit.
- 220. - You wanna see the Sol Lewitt?
- Sure. That'd be fun.
- 221. You wanna see that?
- 222. He opens at the Modern soon. I was
gonna do a piece on Sol for lnsights.
- 223. Do you know that magazine?
It's a little magazine.
- 224. They're such schmucks up there.
Really mired in Thirties radicalism.
- 225. - What do you do, Tracy?
- I go to high school.
- 226. Oh, really. Really. Somewhere Nabokov
is smiling, if you know what I mean.
- 227. LeWitt is overrated. In fact,
he may be a candidate for the academy.
- 228. Right!
- 229. Mary and I have invented the Academy
of the Overrated for such notables as...
- 230. - ... Gustav Mahler...
- Isak Dinesen and Carl Jung.
- 231. - ... Scott Fitzgerald.
- Lenny Bruce. Can't forget him, can we?
- 232. - How about Norman Mailer?
- I think those people are all terrific.
- 233. - Who was that guy you had?
- I didn't. It was yours. Heinrich Boll.
- 234. - Overrated?
- Don't wanna leave out Heinrich.
- 235. Gee, what about Mozart?
You guys don't wanna leave out Mozart.
- 236. - Well, how about Vincent Van Goch?
- She said "Van Goch"?
- 237. - Or Ingmar Bergman?
- You'll get in trouble.
- 238. Bergman? Bergman's the only genius
in cinema today, I think.
- 239. He's a big Bergman fan.
- 240. God, you're so the opposite.
You write that fabulous television show.
- 241. It's so funny and
his view is so Scandinavian.
- 242. It's bleak, my God.
I mean, all that Kierkegaard, right?
- 243. Real adolescent, fashionable pessimism.
I mean, the silence. God's silence.
- 244. OK, OK, OK. I mean,
I loved it when I was at Radcliffe,
- 245. but, all right, you outgrow it.
- 246. Get her away from me. I don't think
I can take too much more of her.
- 247. No. Don't you guys see?
- 248. It is the dignifying of one's
psychological and sexual hang-ups...
- 249. by attaching them to these
grandiose, philosophical issues?
- 250. Here we are.
- 251. Uh, listen,
it was very nice meeting you.
- 252. It was a pleasure
and a sincere sensation...
- 253. but we have to go.
We gotta do some shopping. I forgot.
- 254. Hey, listen, I don't even
wanna have this conversation.
- 255. I'm just from Philadelphia, you know.
I mean, we believe in God so, uh... OK?
- 256. What the hell does that mean?
What do you mean?
- 257. Well, that...
- 258. "I'm from Philadelphia.
I believe in God."
- 259. - Does this make any sense to you?
- 260. What a creep. Could you believe her?
- 261. - I mean, she was really...
- She seemed nervous.
- 262. Nervous? She was overbearing.
- 263. She was, you know, terrible!
She was all cerebral.
- 264. Where the hell
does a little Radcliffe tootsie
- 265. come off rating Scott
- 266. - ... Gustav Mahler and Heinrich Boll?
- Why are you getting so mad?
- 267. Because I don't like that
- 268. "Van Goch!" Did you hear that? She said
Van Goch. Like an Arab she spoke.
- 269. One more remark about Bergman, and I'd
have knocked her other contact lens out.
- 270. - Is she Yale's mistress?
- That will never cease to mystify me.
- 271. I mean, he's got a wonderful wife and
he prefers to... to diddle this yo-yo.
- 272. But he was always a sucker
for those kind ofwomen.
- 273. The kind that would involve him
in discussions of existential reality.
- 274. They probably sit on the floor
with wine and cheese...
- 275. and mispronounce
"allegorical" and "didacticism".
- 276. I get the feeling
that Yale really likes her.
- 277. Well, I don't believe
in extramarital relationships.
- 278. I think people should mate for life
like pigeons or Catholics.
- 279. I don't know. Maybe people weren't
meant to have one deep relationship.
- 280. Maybe we're meant to have a series
of relationships of different lengths.
- 281. - That's gone out of date.
- Don't tell me what's gone out of date.
- 282. You're 17. You were brought up
on drugs and television and the pill.
- 283. I... I was World War II.
I was in the trenches.
- 284. - You were eight in World War II.
- Right. I was never in the trenches.
- 285. I was caught right in the middle.
It was a very tough position.
- 286. Get the groceries, will you?
- 287. Good morning
and welcome to Human Beings Wow!
- 288. We're talking this evening with Gregory
and Caroline Payne Whitney Smith...
- 289. close friends of the Carter family.
- 290. We're normal people.
Just like you, we're in debt.
- 291. Except that Mrs. Payne Whitney Smith
is a catatonic.
- 292. Well, we don't consider her
a catatonic, just quiet.
- 293. Jesus, this is the worst.
This is really embarrassing to me.
- 294. I mean, I... This is so antiseptic...
- 295. No, wrong.
That's very chancy material.
- 296. - How do you see this as chancy?
- Who fights more with the censor?
- 297. What has the censor got to do with it?
There's no substance to the comedy.
- 298. You don't find this insightful?
- 299. Worse than not insightful.
It's not funny.
- 300. - There's not a legitimate laugh.
- That's funny.
- 301. - Look at the audience.
- You're going by audience reaction?
- 302. This is an audience raised on TV.
- 303. Their standards have been lowered
over the years.
- 304. They watch their sets and the gamma rays
eat the white cells of their brains out.
- 305. - I quit. I can't write this any more.
- Relax. Take a lude.
- 306. I don't want a lude. All you do is drop
ludes, then Percodans and angel dust.
- 307. Naturally, it seems funny.
Anything would if you're...
- 308. You should abandon the show
and open a pharmaceutical house. I quit.
- 309. Ike, you're being silly.
- 310. We've talked to them about that.
- 311. - Don't break her neck.
- l won't. That's fine.
- 312. What did I do?
I made a terrible mistake.
- 313. It's the first smart thing you've done.
- 314. I've screwed myself up completely.
- 315. For about 30 seconds I was a big hero,
and now it's directly to unemployment.
- 316. If you need money, I'll take care of it.
- 317. That's not the point.
I got enough for a year.
- 318. If I live like Mahatma Gandhi, I'm fine.
- 319. My accountant says I did this
at a very bad time. My stocks are down.
- 320. I'm cash poor or something.
I got no cash flow.
- 321. I'm not liquid, something's not flowing.
They got a language all their own.
- 322. We discussed this. It's difficult
to live here without a big income.
- 323. Yeah, plus I got two alimonies and child
support. You know, I gotta cut down.
- 324. I'll have to give up my apartment.
- 325. I'm not gonna be able to
play tennis, pick checks up at dinner...
- 326. or take the Southampton house.
- 327. Oh! Plus I'll probably have
to give my parents less money.
- 328. It'll kill my father.
- 329. He's not gonna be able to get
as good a seat in the synagogue.
- 330. He'll be in the back,
away from God, far from the action.
- 331. Have you said anything to Tracy?
- 332. I gotta get out of that situation.
- 333. She's a young girl. What am I...? I'm...
- 334. You know, it's ridiculous. I mean, I...
- 335. What happens if the year goes by
and my book doesn't come out?
- 336. Your book is gonna come out.
Your book is gonna be wonderful.
- 337. The worst thing that can happen is
you'll learn something about yourself.
- 338. Listen, I'm really proud of you.
I mean, this is a verygood move.
- 339. This is a wonderful turnout.
- 340. The Museum of Modern Art
has been very generous.
- 341. And the proof of the strength
of the Equal Rights Amendment...
- 342. is that so many of you
who would never do it before
- 343. put on black tie tonight.
- 344. We love you for it.
We need you and you've come through.
- 345. And now no more talk. Enjoy yourselves.
- 346. Hi. What are you doing here?
- 347. Congratulations on your book.
It was terrific.
- 348. - Oh, thanks.
- Absolutely terrific.
- 349. Listen, I'd like you
to meet Isaac Davis.
- 350. Hi, how do you do? Isaac Davis.
- 351. - Isaac, hello. Hi.
- Wh-what are you doing here?
- 352. Well, of course I'm here.
- 353. What a funny coincidence. Uh,
excuse me, Isaac Davis. We met before.
- 354. - I'm sorry.
- No, no, it's all right.
- 355. I heard you, uh, quit yourjob.
- 356. Yeah. A real self-destructive impulse.
I wanna write a book, so I...
- 357. Has anybody read that Nazis are gonna
march in New Jersey, you know?
- 358. We should go there,
get some guys together.
- 359. Get some bricks and baseball bats
and explain things to 'em.
- 360. There was this devastating
satirical piece on that in the Times.
- 361. Well, a satirical piece
in the Times is one thing,
- 362. but bricks get right to the point.
- 363. Aw, but biting satire
is better that physical force.
- 364. No, physical force is better with Nazis.
- 365. It's hard to satirize
a guy with shiny boots.
- 366. - Well, you get emotional, but...
- We were talking about orgasms.
- 367. - Oh, no, please!
- Really? I'm sorry. I didn't...
- 368. I'm from Philadelphia. We never
talk about such things in public.
- 369. You said that before.
I don't know what it meant then either.
- 370. I'm just about to direct a film...
uh, of my own script.
- 371. The premise is this guy
screws so great...
- 372. - Screws so great?
- Screws so great...
- 373. that when he brings
a woman to orgasm, she's
- 374. so fulfilled that she dies.
- 375. Now this one, excuse me,
finds this hostile.
- 376. It's worse than hostile.
- 377. You have to forgive Dennis.
He's Harvard direct to Beverly Hills.
- 378. It's, uh, Theodor Reik
with a touch of Charles Manson.
- 379. I finally had an orgasm and my doctor
told me it was the wrong kind.
- 380. Did you have the wrong kind?
I've never had the wrong kind. Ever.
- 381. My worst one was right on the money.
- 382. (Ike) Good night.
It was nice to meet you.
- 383. Same here.
- 384. Bye-bye.
- 385. Oh, gee!
- 386. It's an interesting group of people.
Like the cast of a Fellini movie.
- 387. They're such fun, such wonderful people,
and Helen is a good friend.
- 388. - She's a brilliant woman.
- 389. She's a genius. I met her through
my ex-husband Jeremiah.
- 390. How come you guys got divorced?
- 391. What do you mean
"How come we got divorced?"
- 392. What kind of a question is that?
I hardly know you.
- 393. You don't have
to tell me if you don't...
- 394. Well, we had problems. We fought a lot.
- 395. I was tired of submerging my identity
to a brilliant, dominating man.
- 396. He's a genius.
- 397. He was a genius,
Helen's a genius, Dennis is a genius.
- 398. You know a lot of geniuses.
- 399. You should meet some stupid people.
You could learn something.
- 400. Well, why'd you get a divorce?
- 401. Why? I got a divorce because my ex-wife
left me for another woman.
- 402. - Really?
- 403. God, that must have been demoralizing.
- 404. I took it well under the circumstances.
- 405. Phew-wee.
- 406. I tried to run 'em both over
with a car.
- 407. That's incredible sexual humiliation.
- 408. It's enough to turn you offwomen
and it accounts for the little girl.
- 409. Hey, the little girl is fine. Jesus,
she's... What's with the little girl?
- 410. Oh, sure. I understand, believe me.
16 years old, no possible threat at all.
- 411. She's 17. She's gonna be eight...
Sometimes you have a losing personality.
- 412. I'm honest. I say what's on my mind
and if you can't take it, then fuck off.
- 413. I like the way you express yourself,
too. Pithy, yet degenerate.
- 414. - You get many dates? I don't think so.
- No, I do. I actually do.
- 415. I never thought I was very pretty.
- 416. Oh, what is pretty anyway? I hate being
pretty. It's all so subjective anyway.
- 417. The brightest men just drop dead
in front of a beautiful face.
- 418. When you climb into the sack, if you're
a bit giving, they're so grateful.
- 419. Yeah, I know I am.
- 420. - D'you have kids?
- Me, yeah.
- 421. He's being raised by two women.
- 422. I think it works.
- 423. They made some studies,
I read in a psychoanalytic quarterly.
- 424. You don't need a male.
Two mothers are fine.
- 425. Really? Because I feel
very few people survive one mother.
- 426. Listen, I gotta get my dog. Wanna wait?
I gotta walk it. Are you in a rush?
- 427. Oh, no, sure.
What kind of dog you got?
- 428. The worst.
- 429. It's a dachshund. You know,
it's a penis substitute for me.
- 430. Oh, I would have thought then
in your case a Great Dane.
- 431. - So, you serious with Yale or what?
- 432. - Serious?
- 433. Well, he's married.
- 434. Uh, I don't know. I guess
I should straighten my life out, huh?
- 435. Donny my analyst always tells me...
- 436. - You call your analyst Donny?
- Yeah. I call him Donny!
- 437. I call mine Dr. Chomsky, you know.
He hits me with a ruler.
- 438. Donny...? That's first name.
- 439. Donny says I get involved in situations
and that it's deliberate...
- 440. especially with
my ex-husband Jeremiah.
- 441. I was his student and, um...
- 442. - Really? You married your teacher?
- Yeah, of course.
- 443. That's very, uh...
- 444. He failed me
and I fell in love with him.
- 445. Oh, that's perfect.
- 446. I was sleeping with him
and he had the nerve to give me an F.
- 447. - Really?
- Yeah, really.
- 448. Not even an Incomplete, right?
Just a straight F?
- 449. You got a good sense of humor.
- 450. Hey, thanks! I don't need you
to tell me that, you know.
- 451. I've been making good money
off it for years,
- 452. till I quit my job to write this book.
- 453. Now I'm very, very nervous about it,
you know, but...
- 454. D'you wanna...?
Oh, you don't have to pay.
- 455. - Oh, that's OK.
- I'm serious! Wanna walk by the river?
- 456. - You know the time?
- What do you mean?
- 457. If I don't get at least 16 hours,
I'm a basket case.
- 458. I'd like to hear about your book.
I really would. I'm quite a good editor.
- 459. - Yeah?
- 460. Well, my book is about
decaying values. It's about...
- 461. See, years ago I wrote
a short story about my mother
- 462. called The Castrating Zionist...
- 463. and I wanna expand it into a novel.
I could talk about my book all night.
- 464. Isn't it beautiful out?
- 465. Yeah, it's really so pretty
when the light starts to come up.
- 466. Mm, I know. I love it.
- 467. (lke) Boy, this is really a great city.
I don't care what anybody says.
- 468. It's really a knockout, you know.
- 469. I think I better head back.
- 470. I've got an appointment
with Yale for lunch later on.
- 471. Mm, hi.
- 472. No, no. No, I'm awake.
- 473. Jesus, what are you...
What are you doing? It's 7:15.
- 474. Oh, yeah.
- 475. Really?
- 476. You did? At the museum?
- 477. Yeah, well, she's very active
in the feminist movement.
- 478. Uh, so you're gonna go
apartment hunting with Tracy?
- 479. Yeah, well, you should be able
to find something. It's Isaac.
- 480. Yeah, I don't think
you'll have any trouble.
- 481. I knew you'd...
see she's a terrific woman,
- 482. if you spent some time with her.
- 483. You still feel the same way about her?
- 484. 'Cause you hadn't
mentioned it in a while.
- 485. So you... Yeah. Mm-hm.
- 486. Yeah, mm-hm, right. I know.
- 487. She's great, I know. Great.
- 488. So, uh... No, I gotta go
apartment hunting today.
- 489. I have to get something cheaper.
- 490. I can't keep living where I do.
- 491. - Isaac's terrific, isn't he?
- Mm, yeah.
- 492. Said he had a great time with you.
- 493. Really? That's good 'cause I always
think he's uncomfortable around me.
- 494. Oh, come on.
- 495. I missed you so much.
- 496. Yale, this is ridiculous.
- 497. Listen to me. I'm beginning
to sound like one of those women.
- 498. It sounds terrible. I hate it.
- 499. - Why don't I just move out?
- No! I don't wanna break up a marriage.
- 500. Besides, I'm not looking
for any big involvement here.
- 501. It's just... I don't...
- 502. It's crazy. It's crazy. I think about
you when you're not around.
- 503. - What do you want me to do?
- Nothing. I don't know.
- 504. I just guess I should be seeing
someone who's not married.
- 505. You're so beautiful. You make me crazy.
- 506. Oh, Yale, please stop it.
- 507. We're in Bloomingdale's
and someone's gonna see us.
- 508. Did I tell you I may have
an interview with Borges?
- 509. I told you that we met before. He seems
to feel very comfortable around me.
- 510. - Let's go somewhere and make love.
- Not now! Not now, Jesus.
- 511. Anyway, you've got a writing class in
an hour. Your students are gonna know.
- 512. You're gonna have
this big grin on your face.
- 513. And I don't wanna go to your house
- 514. 'cause I can't stand the dog
and the phone ringing.
- 515. Can't you hold me? Does your love for me
always have to express itself sexually?
- 516. What about other values like warmth
and spiritual contact? Hotel, right?
- 517. Jesus, I'm a pushover!
- 518. Oh, hi, Isaac.
- 519. - Hi. Is Willie ready?
- Yeah. Come on in.
- 520. He'll be right down.
- 521. - How you been, Ike?
- Good. How you been?
- 522. - I've been terrific.
- 523. Yeah. Been getting a lot ofwork done.
Things are going really well.
- 524. - Want some coffee or something?
- Uh, no. How's Willie doing?
- 525. Willie's fine. He's beginning
to show some real talent in drawing.
- 526. Where does he get that?
'Cause you don't draw and I don't draw.
- 527. I draw.
- 528. Yeah, but there's no way that
you could be the actual father.
- 529. I'm hoping you'll take Willie
on the 16th
- 530. 'cause Connie and I
want to go to Barbados.
- 531. Are you still gonna
write that stupid book?
- 532. I mean, are you serious about that?
- 533. I'm very serious about it.
It's an honest book.
- 534. You have nothing to be ashamed of.
- 535. - Excuse me.
- Can I talk to you a minute? Excuse me.
- 536. Here's what I still don't understand.
Where are you running?
- 537. I can't understand
how you can prefer her to me.
- 538. - You can't understand?
- 539. You knew my history!
- 540. I know. My analyst warned me, but you
were so beautiful I got another analyst.
- 541. D'you think we can be
- 542. You're putting in all the details?
- 543. No, not the part where
you tried to run her over with the car.
- 544. Wha... I tried
to run her over with a car?
- 545. What are you talking about? It was late.
You know I don't drive well.
- 546. It was raining. It was dark.
- 547. Why were you lurking outside the cabin?
- 548. I was spying on you guys
'cause I knew what was happening.
- 549. You were falling in love.
- 550. So you felt you had to
run her over with the car?
- 551. Do I look like that type of person?
You know how slowly I was going?
- 552. Not slowly enough
that you didn't rip the front porch off.
- 553. Get the kid. I can't... I can't have
this argument every time I come over.
- 554. - You look funny in thatjacket.
- I know.
- 555. I had hoped for something
in the gabardine.
- 556. - So, do you miss me?
- Yeah. Do you miss me?
- 557. Of course I miss you. I love you. That's
why I come and get you all the time.
- 558. - Why can't we have frankfurters?
- Because this is a Russian tearoom.
- 559. I mean, you wanna have a blintz or
something. Frankfurter gives you cancer.
- 560. Besides, you see those two women here?
They have very beautiful women here.
- 561. We could do well.
- 562. I think we could have picked up
these two, if you were quicker.
- 563. I'm serious.
- 564. I think the brunette liked you.
- 565. I think I should, uh...
No, I'll call him.
- 566. Mm...
- 567. Hello, Yale? Um, I'm sorry for calling.
- 568. Well, no, no, nothing's wrong. I...
- 569. Well, I just thought
that it's Sunday out...
- 570. and maybe if you could get away,
we could go for a walk or... Mm.
- 571. Mm-hm. Mm-hm.
- 572. Oh, that's right. You mentioned that.
- 573. Well, OK, it was just a shot.
- 574. Well, I won't keep you. OK. Bye-bye.
- 575. Hello?
- 576. Oh, hi! Hi, how you doin'?
- 577. No, not at all.
I was just sitting around
- 578. looking through the magazine section.
- 579. Uh, no, no, I didn't read the piece
on China's faceless masses.
- 580. I was checking out the lingerie ads.
- 581. Yeah, I can never get past them.
They're really erotic.
- 582. You wanna go for a walk?
- 583. I don't know, I've gotta get out.
- 584. I'm going stir-crazy
and Yale's with Emily's parents.
- 585. It's such a beautiful Sunday.
- 586. It's an electrical storm.
You wanna wind up in an ashtray?
- 587. - It was such a beautiful day out.
- Yeah, wonderful.
- 588. I think the Chrysler Building blew up.
- 589. - Oh, no! Thunder scares me.
- It's not my favorite sound either.
- 590. D'you know every year
one or two people get killed
- 591. during a storm in Central Park?
- 592. Why don't I run up ahead
and we'll talk later?
- 593. Jesus Christ, I'm soaking wet.
This is awful!
- 594. You look ridiculous! You know that?
- 595. Next time you want someone
to walk with you, get somebody else.
- 596. I've never seen anybody react
so strongly to a little bit ofwater.
- 597. It wasn't the water.
It was the electricity.
- 598. I'll turn into a guy that sells
comics outside Bloomingdale's.
- 599. What do you think? You think
I look terrible? How do I look?
- 600. - I can't see.
- You should see your face!
- 601. You look kinda nice, actually.
You're sort of pretty.
- 602. - I'm really annoyed with Yale.
- 603. He was supposed to see me today
and then he couldn't.
- 604. And I had tickets
to this Vivaldi concert.
- 605. He had to cancel on me, of course.
- 606. - (lke) That's what happens when...
- I know. You're having an affair.
- 607. - What a terrible way to put it.
- Hey, I didn't put it that way.
- 608. My husband, well, my ex-husband,
had an affair when we were married.
- 609. - Really?
- Yeah. At least one that I know of.
- 610. And I never mentioned anything because
I felt that I was deficient in some way.
- 611. That I was bad in bed, not bright
enough, or physically unattractive.
- 612. - But in the end he was just a louse.
- Yeah, I know. An intellectual louse.
- 613. Oh, God, was he brilliant.
I was so crazy about him.
- 614. Really opened me up sexually.
Taught me everything.
- 615. Women found him devastating.
- 616. Oh, look. There's Saturn.
- 617. Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun.
- 618. How many of the satellites
of Saturn can you name?
- 619. There's Mimas, Titan, Dione.
Hyperion, of course. Uh...
- 620. I can't name any of 'em and fortunately
they never come up in conversation.
- 621. Facts.
I got a million facts at my fingertips.
- 622. They mean nothing 'cause nothing worth
knowing is understood with the mind.
- 623. Everything valuable enters
through a different opening...
- 624. if you'll forgive
the disgusting imagery.
- 625. I don't agree at all. Where would
we be without rational thought?
- 626. You... you...
you rely too much on your brain.
- 627. The brain is the most overrated organ.
- 628. I know. You probably think
I'm too cerebral.
- 629. Well, you are, you know,
kind of on the brainy side.
- 630. What's the difference what I think about
you? God knows what you think of me.
- 631. You're fine. Are you kidding?
- 632. You do have a tendency to get a little
hostile, but I find that attractive.
- 633. Oh, yeah?
Well, I'm glad you do.
- 634. So, you think I have no feelings?
Is that it?
- 635. Hey, wha... You're so sensitive, Jesus!
I never said that.
- 636. I think you're...
I think you're terrific.
- 637. Really, you know. I... I...
You're very insecure.
- 638. I think you're wonderful, really.
- 639. What do you think?
It's probably stopped raining out.
- 640. You wanna grab a bite
or something like that?
- 641. I gotta
see somebody this evening.
- 642. I don't know if it's a great idea.
- 643. Right. Well...
So what about sometime next week?
- 644. I might give you a call,
if you have any free time?
- 645. Uh...
- 646. I'm not gonna have any free time
- 647. 'cause... I don't think
it's such a great idea.
- 648. I'm working on this book and it,
you know, takes a lot of my energy up.
- 649. OK. OK.
- 650. - Who did you call after dinner?
- Oh, uh, David Cohen.
- 651. He wants me to review the new book
on Virginia Woolf.
- 652. Written another one,
if you can believe it.
- 653. - Are you OK?
- Yeah, I'm fine. What do you mean?
- 654. - You seem sort of nervous.
- No, I'm not. I feel good.
- 655. - I was gonna ask you how you felt.
- No. I'm OK.
- 656. - You seemed strange at dinner.
- Ah, just more thoughts about kids.
- 657. Oh, come on.
- 658. Listen, I told Cohen I'd stop by and
pick up the book. Is that OK with you?
- 659. Yeah.
- 660. It's not too crowded.
- 661. No, not bad for Sunday.
I thought it'd be jammed.
- 662. Gee, I'm glad you could get out tonight
- 663. 'cause...
I really did wanna see you a lot.
- 664. I like it when you get
an uncontrollable urge.
- 665. Yeah, I know, it's my best feature.
- 666. My boyish impetuosity.
It's my... You look adorable.
- 667. So I have a chance to go to London...
- 668. study with the Academy
of Music and Dramatic Arts.
- 669. Really? When did this happen?
- 670. The other day.
Got a letter in the mail.
- 671. Well, that's great. That's terrific.
- 672. But I don't wanna go without you.
- 673. Hey, I can't go to London and study.
- 674. Especially Shakespeare.
You know, I don't look good in leotards.
- 675. - I'm serious.
- Of course you should go. It's great.
- 676. You'll have a great time.
- 677. It's a great town
and you're a wonderful actress
- 678. and it's a terrific place to study.
- 679. You'll be the toast of the town.
You'll have a good time, really.
- 680. - You shouldn't pass that...
- So what happens to us?
- 681. Well, you know, we'll always have Paris.
- 682. I'm kidding.
- 683. What kind of question is that?
You can't think of that now.
- 684. You won't take me seriously
just because I'm 17.
- 685. Yeah, exactly, because you're 17.
I mean, it's ridiculous.
- 686. You're 17 now.
When you're 36, I'll be...
- 687. - Um...
- 688. 63, right. Thank you.
- 689. You know, it's absurd. You'll be
at the height of your sexual powers.
- 690. Of course, I will too probably, but...
- 691. you know, I'm a late starter.
- 692. - Who ordered the plain pie?
- 693. So you must be anchovies,
sausage, mushrooms, peppers.
- 694. - Mm-hm.
- Forgot the coconut.
- 695. So what do you wanna do tonight?
- 696. We'll go to the movies,
I'll take you dancing...
- 697. - Anything?
- Absolutely anything.
- 698. OK, I know what we can do.
- 699. Well, get the filthy look
off your face.
- 700. Shut up. It's not filthy.
- 701. (lke) This is so corny. I can't believe
this. Is this what you wanted to do?
- 702. I don't think it's corny.
I think it's fun!
- 703. It is fun, but I did this
when I was a kid, you know.
- 704. Well, I've never done it.
I think it's great.
- 705. (lke) On my prom night I went
around this park five times, six times.
- 706. If I had been with a girl, this would
have been an incredible experience.
- 707. Quit fighting it.
You know you're crazy about me.
- 708. I am. You're...
You're God's answer to Job.
- 709. You would have ended
all argument between them.
- 710. He'd have said
"I do a lot of terrible things
- 711. but I can also make one of these."
- 712. And Job would've said "OK, you win."
- 713. Look, this is crazy. I just can't do
this any more. It's really bullshit!
- 714. You're married and
I expected to see you this weekend...
- 715. and I sit around like
I've nothing to do, so I called Isaac.
- 716. We went for a walk.
- 717. - It was just lucky he was free.
- I know. I'm sorry.
- 718. Oh, it's not your fault.
What the hell. It's a no-win situation.
- 719. It's just I'm beautiful and I'm bright
and I deserve better!
- 720. I know.
- 721. - What if I took some action?
- 722. - Oh. I'm not a home wrecker.
- 723. I don't know how I got into this.
I guess we met at the wrong time.
- 724. It happens. Hello?
- 725. Oh, hi. Oh, hi, Harvey. How are you?
- 726. - Uh, what?
- 727. Well, um, why don't you bring it by
on Thursday and I'll read it then, OK?
- 728. Yeah, yeah, yeah, OK. Right, I'll talk
to you later. OK, bye-bye.
- 729. - What d'you want me to do?
- Waffles. Nothing. It's just...
- 730. Waffles! Will you stop that now?
We're just going no place. Excuse me.
- 731. Look, I know it's terrible.
- 732. I'm at Sneedon's Landing
with Emily and her parents...
- 733. and I love her!
And I'm thinking about you all the time.
- 734. - Christ. I don't wanna hear it.
- 735. I'm from Philadelphia.
My family's never had affairs.
- 736. My parents have been married 43 years.
Nobody cheats at all. Hello?
- 737. Oh, Donny. Hi!
It's my analyst.
- 738. Hello. Uh...
- 739. Um, no, uh... Well, I think
that'd be impossible. Uh...
- 740. OK, well, probably later in the week.
OK, all right.
- 741. I'll get back to you. OK, bye.
- 742. - Oh, man. Waffles!
- 743. Please, just don't. This is really a bad
time... Waffles! a bad time for me.
- 744. I gotta think things through here.
- 745. - Obviously I shouldn't have come here.
- Well, no, probably not.
- 746. - Listen to that! How am I gonna...?
- 747. What is that sound? Can you hear that?
Listen. Where's it coming from?
- 748. It's like somebody's
playing the trumpet.
- 749. Or somebody sawing... Like a man
sawing a trumpet in half. Right? Right?
- 750. - Let's fool around.
- You hear it?
- 751. It'll take your mind off it.
- 752. How many times a night...? How often
can you make love in an evening?
- 753. - Well, a lot.
- Yeah, I can tell. A lot. That's...
- 754. Well, a lot is my favorite number.
Gee, really? Can you?
- 755. Let's do it some strange way
you've always wanted to do...
- 756. but nobody would do with you.
- 757. I'm shocked. What kind of talk
is that from a kid your age?
- 758. I'll get my scuba-diving equipment
and really show you...
- 759. - Take me seriously!
- I do take you seriously, but...
- 760. - Listen to this.
- 761. Am I crazy? Wha...? Ah!
- 762. It's a rumbling.
- 763. Listen to that goddamn...
Where the hell is that coming from?
- 764. - It's probably just the elevator shaft.
- It's not. It's coming from the walls.
- 765. Let's... Let's...
Can we check into a hotel?
- 766. - Oh, you're crazy!
- I can't sleep here. I can't.
- 767. Where's the aspirin? What d'you do...
- 768. I can help you fix this place up,
if you give me a chance.
- 769. No, and I don't want you living here.
- 770. Tonight is a special occasion.
It's my first night in the apartment...
- 771. so I wanted to break in the place
and I was afraid to sleep alone.
- 772. Hey, what is this?
There's brown water!
- 773. - The pipes are rusty.
- What is this, Tracy?
- 774. - The pipes are rusty.
- Look at this. It's brown water.
- 775. I'm paying $700 a month.
I got rats with bongos and a frog.
- 776. And I got brown water here.
- 777. - Look. It's disgusting.
- What's gonna happen to us?
- 778. Listen. You keep ignoring me.
What's gonna happen with us?
- 779. What do you mean?
D'you have a good time with me?
- 780. - Aren't I a load of laughs and fun?
- 781. So, and that's it, and we have fun.
- 782. Then you're gonna go to London
exactly as we discussed it.
- 783. You're gonna take advantage of that
opportunity and study acting over there.
- 784. And you'll think of me always
as a fond memory. It'll be nice.
- 785. You know we have to
stop seeing each other?
- 786. Oh, yeah. Right, right.
- 787. I understand. I could tell by
the sound of your voice over the phone.
- 788. Very authoritative, you know.
Like the Pope or the computer in 2001.
- 789. It's not fair to you
and I don't know what I'm doing.
- 790. - Right.
- I mean... Come on, don't be angry.
- 791. You brought this up. You're not happy
the way things are going.
- 792. I'm not angry.
It's just I knew it was gonna end,
- 793. but now it's happened I'm upset, OK?
- 794. Look, you don't wanna
make a commitment.
- 795. And I don't wanna break up my marriage
- 796. and then find out
we're no good together.
- 797. I've gotta start thinking about Emily.
- 798. OK, you made your point very clear.
- 799. I'm just glad one of us
had the nerve to end it.
- 800. - Will you be all right?
- 801. Of course I will. What d'you think
I'm gonna do? Hang myself?
- 802. I'm a beautiful woman.
I'm young, highly intelligent.
- 803. I got everything going for me.
- 804. The point is that... I don't know,
I'm all fucked up. I'm just... Shit!
- 805. What am I doing in this relationship
anyway? My phone never stops ringing.
- 806. I could go to bed with the entire
faculty of MIT, if I wanted to.
- 807. It's just...
- 808. I don't know. I'm wasting myself
on a married man, so I don't know.
- 809. Listen, I think I'd better go now.
I just want you to have this.
- 810. I got these tickets
to see Rampal tonight.
- 811. Oh, Mary. This is very hard on me, too.
- 812. Please! Just take them
and go with your wife.
- 813. Mary, you love Rampal.
Call somebody up. Take Isaac.
- 814. Fuck off, Yale!
- 815. Um, I know you're gonna think
the water's a little brown,
- 816. but you can drink it.
- 817. Don't get thrown by this.
- 818. - I'm really sorry for bothering you.
- No problem.
- 819. It's just...
- 820. - God, this is brown, isn't it?
- It is, but you get used to it.
- 821. I didn't know who to call.
- 822. I don't think you should take Valium.
It causes cancer.
- 823. - No. Half a Valium?
- Yeah, abdominal cancer, I think.
- 824. When did they find that out?
- 825. That's just my theory, but I think
it's correct. I got tissues someplace.
- 826. Well, I guess
I deserve everything I get.
- 827. Come on.
- 828. It's true. It's really true. I mean,
I knew it couldn't possibly work out.
- 829. Yeah, you pick a married guy...
- 830. and when it doesn't work out,
it confirms your worst feelings.
- 831. What worst feelings?
- 832. You know. Your feelings about men
and marriage and that nothing works.
- 833. Oh, please, don't psychoanalyze me.
I pay a doctor for that.
- 834. Hey. You call that guy
that you talk to a doctor?
- 835. You don't get suspicious when he calls
you at 3am and weeps into the telephone?
- 836. So he's unorthodox.
He's a highly qualified doctor.
- 837. He's done a greatjob on you.
- 838. Your self-esteem is like
a notch below Kafka's.
- 839. - What is that noise?
- 840. Yeah. Incredible, isn't it?
- 841. There's a guy upstairs.
I don't know what the hell it is.
- 842. It's like he's up there strangling a
parrot or something. I can't stand it.
- 843. How can you stand it? It's terrible.
- 844. I know.
I used to have a great apartment.
- 845. - Wanna go for a walk? It's quieter out.
- No, I think I'll just go home.
- 846. - No, come on.
- 847. He led me on! That's the point of it.
Why am I reluctant to criticize him?
- 848. Relax. Yale would not do that.
He's not that kind of a guy.
- 849. Don't defend him.
You guys all stick up for each other.
- 850. Yale has his problems as we all do.
- 851. I'm starting to sound
like Rabbi Blitzstein.
- 852. Well, thanks for letting me come over.
I appreciate it. It's very nice of you.
- 853. Tracy and I are going out tonight,
if you wanna come along.
- 854. Oh, no, I'll be fine. I'll be OK.
- 855. - Yeah?
- 856. - That's a healthy piece of towel paper.
- Oh, gee. God!
- 857. Well, goodbye. Thanks a lot.
- 858. (TV) But my point is a cab driver
doesn't make enough money...
- 859. Oh, look at that... that guy's toupee.
- 860. That is hilarious. Mm, there's a... a...
an inch of cheesecloth. You can see it.
- 861. I don't know why, you know,
his loved ones don't tell him.
- 862. It's like the toupee dropped on his head
from a window ledge as he was walking.
- 863. But look at his wife. Looks like her
face has been lifted about 8,000 times.
- 864. I know. It's so plastic. It's so tight.
- 865. I hate that. I just hate that. I wish...
- 866. Why can't they just age naturally
instead of putting all thatjunk on?
- 867. I know. Old faces are... are nice.
- 868. Yeah. They're great.
- 869. Mm... Mm...
- 870. Hey, be careful. I think
I got black bean sauce in the bed.
- 871. Oh, look. It's great.
The late show's a WC Fields film.
- 872. Mm.
- 873. Oh, great. We gotta watch that.
- 874. Oh! Oh, God.
- 875. Boy, I really feel good, you know.
I got my life together finally.
- 876. Yeah?
- 877. You know, I just had
to cut this thing off finally.
- 878. I'm not the type for affairs.
- 879. D'you ever hear from Mary, or see her?
- 880. No. We cut it off.
It's easier that way.
- 881. She's terrific. She deserves more
than a fling with a married guy.
- 882. Yeah, she's screwed up, but great.
- 883. Right up your alley.
You oughta call her.
- 884. - I... I should call her?
- 885. - Why should I call her?
- Because she likes you.
- 886. She told me she did.
- 887. - You're crazy.
- No. She said she finds you attractive.
- 888. - She said she found me attractive?
- 889. - When was this?
- She said it when she first met you.
- 890. - I didn't know. I can't.
- Sorry about that.
- 891. I always think of you guys together.
- 892. It's over. Unless you're serious
about Tracy. Are you?
- 893. - No. Tracy's too young.
- Then call her up.
- 894. Listen, she's an unhappy person.
I mean, she needs something in her life.
- 895. I think you guys
would be good together.
- 896. I could be a good influence on her.
- 897. I think that under
my personal vibrations,
- 898. I could put her life
in a kind of good order.
- 899. That's what you said about Jill, and she
went from bisexuality to homosexuality.
- 900. Yeah, but I gave it
the old college try there for a while.
- 901. - Listen, you should call her up.
- No kidding. What did she say about me?
- 902. She said that she likes you very much.
She thinks you're smart.
- 903. - She thinks you're...
- Keep going. Don't stop.
- 904. - ... attractive.
- Really? No kidding.
- 905. You see, to me a great movie
is with WC Fields. That's what I like.
- 906. Or Grand lllusion. That's...
- 907. I see that every time it's on
television, if I'm aware of it.
- 908. So what you got to eat here? Nothing.
- 909. Oh, Jesus, what is this?
- 910. You got a corned beef sandwich here
from 1951, I think.
- 911. - Look at this. I mean...
- Yeah, I know, I know.
- 912. - I don't have time to cook.
- Corned beef should not be blue.
- 913. Ugh, it's really terrible.
- 914. - Hey.
- 915. Come here.
- 916. What're you doing?
- 917. What am I doing? You have to ask?
I was kissing you flush on the mouth.
- 918. I... I cannot get my life
in any kind of order. It's just...
- 919. It's something I wanted
to do for ages.
- 920. Yeah, I know.
- 921. Do you? I thought I was hiding it.
I was trying to be real cool and casual.
- 922. I thought you wanted to kiss me
at the planetarium.
- 923. - I did.
- I thought so.
- 924. But you were going out with Yale then
- 925. and I would never
in a million years interfere...
- 926. Did you want me to kiss you?
- 927. Mm, I don't know what I wanted.
I was so angry at Yale that day.
- 928. But you were so sexy.
You were soaking wet from the rain...
- 929. and I had a mad impulse to throw you
down on the lunar surface...
- 930. and commit
interstellar perversion with you.
- 931. I can't go from relationship
to relationship. It's senseless.
- 932. I can't do it.
- 933. Well, what... Are you still
hung up on Yale? Is that the problem?
- 934. I've got too many problems.
- 935. I'm really not the person
to get involved with. I'm trouble.
- 936. - Hey, honey, Trouble is my middle name.
- What are you saying?
- 937. Actually, my middle name is Mortimer.
- 938. I'm... I'm kidding.
- 939. My problem is I'm both attracted
and repelled by the male organ.
- 940. Shh.
- 941. So it doesn't make for
good relationships with men.
- 942. What about your relationships
- 943. You never really told me much
about your first wife.
- 944. My first wife was
a kindergarten teacher, you know.
- 945. She got into drugs
and she, uh, moved to San Francisco.
- 946. Went into est, became a Moonie.
- 947. She's with
the William Morris Agency now.
- 948. D'you like that?
- 949. This... this, I think, has a kind of
wonderful otherness to it, you know.
- 950. - A marvelous negative capability.
- 951. Kind ofwonderful energy to it,
don't you think?
- 952. I thought that wine
was wonderful, didn't you think?
- 953. And itjust made my face
all flushed and hot.
- 954. (lke) Yeah. You look so beautiful
I can hardly keep my eyes on the meter.
- 955. - It's 14 bucks!
- 956. I know, but it was a great restaurant.
Didn't you love it?
- 957. Yeah, I love seafood. Course I'm drunk.
I don't know if you can tell or not.
- 958. Hey, you know,
it was the only time in my life
- 959. I ever had Chianti from Warsaw.
- 960. - Give me a kiss.
- 961. - What are you thinking?
- 962. I was thinking there must be
something wrong with me...
- 963. because I've never
had a relationship...
- 964. that's lasted longer than
the one between Hitler and Eva Braun.
- 965. I think you're still drunk!
- 966. It's great. It's... it's...
- 967. I don't play the harmonica, but it's an
incredible... harmonica is what it is.
- 968. Well, you said you wanted to learn.
I'm trying to open up that side of you.
- 969. Tracy, you're throwing away
an enormous amount of real affection...
- 970. on the wrong person.
- 971. It's not wrong for me.
- 972. Listen, I don't... I don't think
we should keep seeing each other.
- 973. Why not?
- 974. Because I think you're getting
too hung up on me, you know?
- 975. "Hung up on me."
I'm starting to sound like you.
- 976. I'm not hung up on you.
I'm in love with you.
- 977. You can't be in love with me.
We've been over this.
- 978. You're a kid. You don't know what
love means. I don't know what it means.
- 979. Nobody knows what the hell's going on.
- 980. We have laughs together.
I care about you.
- 981. Your concerns are my concerns.
We have great sex.
- 982. You... But you're 17 years old.
- 983. By the time you're 21,
you'll have a dozen relationships...
- 984. believe me,
far more passionate than this one.
- 985. Well, don't you love me?
- 986. The truth is that I love somebody else.
- 987. You do?
- 988. Hey, come on... We... we...
- 989. This was supposed to be
a temporary fling. You know that.
- 990. You met someone?
- 991. Don't stare at me with those big eyes.
- 992. You look like one of those barefoot kids
from Bolivia who needs foster parents.
- 993. Have you been seeing someone?
- 994. No. Yes. Someone older.
- 995. I mean, y-y-you know, y-y-you know.
- 996. Not as old as I am,
but in the same general ballpark as me.
- 997. Gee, now I don't feel so good.
- 998. It's not right.
You shouldn't get hung...
- 999. I mean, you should open up your life.
- 1000. You know, you've got to.
- 1001. You state it like it's to my advantage,
- 1002. when it's you that wants
to get out of it.
- 1003. Hey, don't be so precocious, OK?
I mean, don't be so smart.
- 1004. I'm 42. My hair's falling out.
- 1005. I'm starting to lose
some hearing in my right ear.
- 1006. Is that what you want?
- 1007. I can't believe that you met somebody
that you like better than me.
- 1008. Why should I feel guilty about this?
- 1009. I've always encouraged you
to go out with guys more your own age.
- 1010. Kids from your class.
Billy and Biff and Scooter.
- 1011. And, you know, little Tommy or Terry.
- 1012. Hey, come on, don't cry.
- 1013. Don't cry.
- 1014. Come on, don't cry.
- 1015. Tracy... Tracy, don't...
Come on. Don't cry, Tracy.
- 1016. - Tracy...
- Just leave me alone.
- 1017. Tracy, come on, don't...
- 1018. Leave me alone.
- 1019. - That was wonderful.
- (lke) I'll say.
- 1020. - I love being in the country.
- Mm, it's very relaxing.
- 1021. The mosquitoes have sucked all the blood
out of my left leg. Apart from that...
- 1022. - Doesn't it make you feel better?
- Yeah, you were dynamite...
- 1023. except I felt for about
two seconds you were faking.
- 1024. - Not a lot.
- 1025. Yes. When you dug your nails
into my neck, you were a little...
- 1026. Well, I guess I'm nervous around you.
- 1027. - Still?
- Well, yeah.
- 1028. So crazy.
- 1029. Because I'd like
everything to work out.
- 1030. It will. You should leave everything
to me. I'll make everything happen.
- 1031. - D'you really promise?
- 1032. Because I like you.
I feel good around you.
- 1033. I don't blame you.
- 1034. Yeah, I mean... Yale was great, he was
absolutely great, but he was married.
- 1035. And Jeremiah, my ex-husband.
- 1036. He was just this oversexed,
brilliant kind of animal.
- 1037. - Hey, what am I? Grandma Moses?
- Not at all. No, no, no.
- 1038. - You're much different.
- 1039. Yes. You're someone
I could imagine having children with.
- 1040. - Really?
- 1041. Hit the lights. Go ahead. Turn 'em out.
- 1042. We'll trade fours.
- 1043. Well, we never see you any more.
- 1044. 'Cause I'm working on my book.
- 1045. - It's that girl. Serious, isn't it?
- Well, serious, you know.
- 1046. When are we gonna get to meet her?
I'm sure Yale'd like to meet her.
- 1047. We should go out sometime.
- 1048. I don't understand. Why does he
need a car? A sudden urge.
- 1049. He just wants it.
- 1050. What...? Is there nothing I can do
to dissuade you from this?
- 1051. It's so crazy. They should ban all cars
from Manhattan. I mean, this is crazy.
- 1052. Listen, Emily wants to know
why I never bring Mary around.
- 1053. Why not bring Mary around?
- 1054. - I don't know. Is it awkward for you?
- Are you kidding?
- 1055. I spoke to her. It's no problem for her.
- 1056. - Then why not?
- Well, you know.
- 1057. Hey, don't get this thing. I hate cars.
It screws up the environment.
- 1058. - This is a work of art.
- 1059. - Hi.
- 1060. - This is Emily.
- Hello. Nice to meet you.
- 1061. - This is Yale.
- Hi, Yale.
- 1062. So, shall we go?
- 1063. - Yeah, let's go.
- 1064. (lke) Look at that.
That building is almost torn down.
- 1065. Can't they have those things
- 1066. Yeah, I once tried to block demolition.
- 1067. Getting some people to lay in front of a
building, and a cop stepped on my hand.
- 1068. The city's really changing.
- 1069. I need something for round the house
that doesn't make me look too Mexican.
- 1070. Ugh, this is...
- 1071. - Mary?
- Oh, my God. Jeremiah. Well...
- 1072. - Hi.
- 1073. Jeremiah,
this is my friend Isaac Davis.
- 1074. Hi. Glad to meet you.
- 1075. - God, this is incredible.
- 1076. I'm in town for a few days.
There's a symposium on semantics.
- 1077. - Well...
- And you're looking so great.
- 1078. I just, uh...
- 1079. - You. You're so thin. You lost weight.
- Well, I have an exercise machine.
- 1080. Well, you really look good. Really good.
- 1081. God. Well, I'm a bit late,
but it's just so nice seeing you.
- 1082. - It's great seeing you.
- I read an article by you...
- 1083. - ... on Brecht.
- Oh, shit! I know.
- 1084. I always was a sucker
for Germanic theatre.
- 1085. - Well...
- 1086. - OK. Well, God... OK. So long.
- Bye. Bye, Jeremiah.
- 1087. Bye. Bye.
- 1088. God, what a surprise.
I cannot get over it. My ex-husband.
- 1089. And he really does look a lot thinner.
He looks great.
- 1090. You certainly fooled me. I was shocked
'cause that's not what I expected.
- 1091. - What did you expect?
- I don't know.
- 1092. You had always led me to...
- 1093. You said he was a ladies' man,
that he opened you up sexually.
- 1094. So? So?
- 1095. Then this little homunculus,
- 1096. He's quite devastating.
- 1097. Really?
- 1098. Well, it's... it's amazing
how subjective all that stuff is.
- 1099. I don't know what you're...
- 1100. - Boy, you're really typing away.
- Yeah, it's a cinch.
- 1101. You still reviewing Tolstoy?
- 1102. No, no, I finished that two days ago.
I'm on that novelization.
- 1103. What... what do you waste your time
with a novelization for?
- 1104. Why? Because it's easy and it pays well.
- 1105. It's like another contemporary American
phenomenon that's truly moronic.
- 1106. The novelizations of movies.
You're much too brilliant for that.
- 1107. - You should be doing other stuff.
- 1108. - Like what?
- 1109. I've seen your fiction.
- 1110. Hello?
- 1111. Mary, hi. It's Yale.
- 1112. I was hoping you'd pick up.
- 1113. Listen, could we meet for coffee?
- 1114. Well, why? What is it?
- 1115. Well, you know, I miss you.
I just thought maybe we could talk.
- 1116. No, I don't think
that would be possible.
- 1117. I don't think that would be
possible at all.
- 1118. I'm sorry, I just, uh...
No, I... I'm sorry. I gotta go.
- 1119. - Who was that?
- 1120. Who was that on the phone just now?
- 1121. - Uh, dance lessons.
- Dance lessons that was?
- 1122. Yeah. Do we want free dance lessons?
- 1123. Right. They give you one free lesson,
then they hook you for $50,000 worth.
- 1124. Viking loved my book.
They loved the first four chapters...
- 1125. and, you know,
they were really complimentary.
- 1126. Yale had read them
and thought they showed promise.
- 1127. But Yale's family,
so of course he's encouraging.
- 1128. But Viking will shell out the money.
- 1129. Maybe it'll inspire Yale
to finish his book.
- 1130. He's been talking about it long enough.
- 1131. Mary read the stuff and she was laughing
out loud. I respect herjudgment.
- 1132. Although she's doing
a think piece on...
- 1133. Hello?
- 1134. Hey, where were you? You were
supposed to be home an hour ago.
- 1135. - Uh... I bought the car.
- Oh, no. You did?
- 1136. I know it's a meaningless extravagance,
but I had to have it.
- 1137. - That thing we saw?
- 1138. Did you hear Viking Press loved
the first four chapters of Ike's book?
- 1139. - Great!
- They were real complimentary.
- 1140. Next week I get the car
and we'll celebrate.
- 1141. - OK.
- In our new car.
- 1142. Jesus, listen to this.
- 1143. "Making love to this
deeper, more masterful female...
- 1144. made me realize
what an empty experience...
- 1145. what a bizarre charade
sex with my husband was."
- 1146. Please. That is so nauseating. I... Oh!
- 1147. Is this true? Did you make love
with Jill and a woman?
- 1148. - She put that in?
- 1149. Christ! She wanted to, I think.
I didn't wanna be a bad sport.
- 1150. - Did you have a good time?
- No, I didn't.
- 1151. Did you hear the one
where he tried to run her lover over?
- 1152. - Oh, yeah.
- Whose side are you on?
- 1153. I didn't try and run her over.
It was raining. The car lurched.
- 1154. Jesus, now everybody in town
is gonna know all these details.
- 1155. Everybody... All my friends and...
- 1156. Listen. "He was given to fits
of rage, Jewish, liberal paranoia...
- 1157. male chauvinism,
- 1158. and nihilistic moods of despair."
- 1159. "He had complaints about life,
but never solutions."
- 1160. "He longed to be an artist,
but balked at the necessary sacrifices."
- 1161. "In his most private moments,
he spoke of his fear of death...
- 1162. which he elevated to tragic heights
when, in fact, it was mere narcissism."
- 1163. - I came here to strangle you.
- Nothing I wrote was untrue.
- 1164. You make me out to be
Lee Harvey Oswald!
- 1165. It's an honest account.
- 1166. - That I'm narcissistic?
- You're self-obsessed.
- 1167. - Misanthropic and self-righteous?
- I wrote some nice things about you.
- 1168. Like what? What?
- 1169. You cry when you see
Gone With The Wind.
- 1170. - What are you laughing about?
- 1171. - You let her write that garbage?
- Wait. This is between you two.
- 1172. D'you honestly think
that I tried to run you over?
- 1173. You just happened to hit the gas
as I walked in front of the car.
- 1174. - Did I do it on purpose?
- Well, what would Freud say?
- 1175. That I really wanted to run her over.
That's why he was a genius.
- 1176. Listen, I'm going upstairs.
I got work to do.
- 1177. Don't forget
that Willie's at ballet class.
- 1178. Look, I better warn you.
- 1179. I've had some interest in this book
for a movie sale.
- 1180. - Anybody home?
- 1181. Yeah? I got an unbelievable story to
tell you. Absolutely incredible. You OK?
- 1182. - Oh, yeah.
- 1183. Just let me get one glass of brown water
'cause I'm dying of thirst.
- 1184. - Isaac, I wanna talk to you first.
- Mm-mm. So I go over to Jill's today...
- 1185. because I'm real annoyed over that
junk she printed in the book. And...
- 1186. Isaac, before you get wound up,
there's something I wanna tell you.
- 1187. - What's the matter? You look pale.
- 1188. Wh... What's the matter?
- 1189. Hey, what... Is there something wrong?
What is it?
- 1190. I think I'm still in love with Yale.
- 1191. What?
- 1192. You... Are you kidd...?
- 1193. - You are?
- 1194. Well, when did this happen? What...
- 1195. Well, you are or you thinkyou are?
- 1196. I started seeing him again.
- 1197. When? Since when?
- 1198. Just since today. I mean,
that's why I wanted to be open about it.
- 1199. Jesus, I'm... I'm shocked.
- 1200. I'm... I'm shocked. I'm surprised.
- 1201. I think I've always
been in love with him.
- 1202. How does he feel about this?
- 1203. Well...
- 1204. He wants to move out of his place
so that we can live together.
- 1205. I'm stunned.
I mean, I'm in a state of, uh...
- 1206. Somebody should throw a blanket
over me. You know, I'm...
- 1207. Well, you see, he called me several
times in a very depressed state...
- 1208. and he still loves me.
- 1209. This is shaping up like a Noel Coward
play. Somebody should go make martinis.
- 1210. I don't blame you
for being furious with me.
- 1211. I'm too stunned to be furious.
- 1212. Well, then I wish you would.
- 1213. I wish you'd get angry
so that we could have it out.
- 1214. I don't get angry.
I tend to internalize.
- 1215. I can't express anger. That's one of the
problems I have. I grow a tumor instead.
- 1216. Well, I told you that
I was trouble from the beginning,
- 1217. from when we started dating.
- 1218. So what does your analyst say?
- 1219. Donny's in a coma.
He had a very bad acid experience.
- 1220. Oh, that's gr... That's great.
I mean, you know...
- 1221. I think you're making
a big mistake here.
- 1222. Why?
- 1223. Why? Because you... Why?
Because you're preferring Yale to me.
- 1224. I know that sounds egotistical,
but, uh, you know...
- 1225. This guy's been married 12 years.
What do you think will happen?
- 1226. He'll be away from her for a month,
he'll go crazy.
- 1227. And if he does commit to you, when you
start to feel secure, you'll drop him.
- 1228. I know it.
I give the whole thing... four weeks.
- 1229. I can't plan that far in advance.
- 1230. - You can't plan four weeks in advance?
- 1231. What kind of foresight is that?
- 1232. Jesus. You know, I knew you were crazy
when we started going out.
- 1233. You always think
that you're gonna be the one
- 1234. that makes 'em act different, but...
- 1235. Isaac, I'm sorry.
I really am. I'm really sorry.
- 1236. Mm-mm. Oh, well, I'm...
- 1237. I'm sorr... Where are you going?
- 1238. - I gotta get some air.
- 1239. What are you doing here?
- 1240. I spoke to Mary. Were you gonna tell me?
- 1241. I was, but...
I'm trying to teach a class.
- 1242. So where can we go and talk?
- 1243. - How'd you get past the security?
- I walked right past.
- 1244. What are you telling me?
That you're gonna leave Emily...
- 1245. and run away with
the... the winner of the...
- 1246. Zelda Fitzgerald
Emotional Maturity Award?
- 1247. Look, I love her.
- 1248. - What kind of crazy friend are you?
- A good friend. I introduced you two.
- 1249. - Why? What was the point?
- 'Cause I thought you liked her!
- 1250. - I do! Now we both like her!
- Yeah, well, I liked her first.
- 1251. "I liked her first."
What are you, six years old? Jesus!
- 1252. Look, would I have encouraged you
to take her out if I still liked her?
- 1253. So you liked her?
Now you don't like her?
- 1254. It's early. You can change your mind
one more time before dinner.
- 1255. Don't get sarcastic about this.
You think I like this?
- 1256. How long were you gonna see her
without telling me?
- 1257. Don't turn this into
one of your big moral issues.
- 1258. You could've said, but you... All you
had to do was call me and talk to me.
- 1259. I'm understanding. I'd have said no,
but you'd have felt honest.
- 1260. I wanted to tell you about it.
I knew it would upset you. I...
- 1261. We had a few innocent meetings.
- 1262. A few? She said one. You guys should get
your story straight. Don't you rehearse?
- 1263. We met twice for coffee.
- 1264. Hey, she doesn't drink coffee.
- 1265. Did you meet for Sanka?
- 1266. That's not too romantic.
A little on the geriatric side.
- 1267. I'm not a saint, OK?
- 1268. You're too easy on yourself.
Don't you see?
- 1269. You're... You rationalize everything.
You're not honest with yourself.
- 1270. You talk about you wanna write a book,
- 1271. but in the end
you'd rather buy a Porsche.
- 1272. You cheat a little bit on Emily
and you play around the truth with me.
- 1273. The next thing you know you're in front
of a Senate committee naming names.
- 1274. You are so self-righteous.
- 1275. I mean, we're just people. We're just
human beings. You think you're God!
- 1276. I gotta model myself after someone.
- 1277. You just can't live the way you do.
It's all so perfect.
- 1278. Jesus, what are future generations
gonna say about us? My God!
- 1279. You know, someday
we're gonna be like him.
- 1280. And he was probably one of the beautiful
people, dancing and playing tennis.
- 1281. And now look.
This is what happens to us.
- 1282. You know, it's important
to have some kind of personal integrity.
- 1283. I'll be hanging
in a classroom one day...
- 1284. and I wanna make sure when I thin out
that I'm... well thought of.
- 1285. Ike!
- 1286. Isaac, where are you going?
- 1287. No, I knew Yale had affairs.
- 1288. But then, nothing's perfect.
- 1289. Marriage is a... requires
some minor compromises, I guess.
- 1290. It's funny 'cause I'm just
- 1291. I mean, I can't... I can't see that.
- 1292. I think it's always
a mistake to look the other way
- 1293. 'cause you pay for it in the end.
- 1294. But then you saw what Jill
wrote about me in that book.
- 1295. I'm living in the past.
- 1296. How about you? You seeing anybody?
- 1297. Yeah. You know, I... I never had any
problem meeting women. I mean, that's...
- 1298. But I was thinking about this
just about a week ago.
- 1299. I think, and I know this sounds strange,
- 1300. but I think
I really missed a good bet...
- 1301. when I let Tracy go.
- 1302. - Remember Tracy?
- Yeah. I liked her.
- 1303. Yeah. I was thinking about this
at home last week...
- 1304. and I think, of all the women
I've known over the last years...
- 1305. when I actually
am honest with myself,
- 1306. I think I had the most relaxed times...
- 1307. and, you know,
the nicest times with her.
- 1308. She was a terrific kid,
but young, right?
- 1309. So that's that.
- 1310. Why don't you call her?
- 1311. No, I would never do that.
I think I blew that one.
- 1312. I kept her at a distance
and I would never give her a chance.
- 1313. And she was so sweet, you know.
- 1314. She called me. She left a message
with my service about a month ago...
- 1315. that I should
watch Grand lllusion on television
- 1316. and I never returned her call.
- 1317. 'Cause I, you know, I didn't wanna
lead her on or anything.
- 1318. She really cared about me and I...
- 1319. You know I was
a little pissed off at you.
- 1320. Me?
- 1321. I figured if you hadn't introduced Mary
to Yale, this might never have happened.
- 1322. (lke) An idea for a short story
about, um, people in Manhattan...
- 1323. who are constantly creating...
- 1324. these real, unnecessary,
neurotic problems for themselves...
- 1325. 'cause it keeps them from dealing
- 1326. with more unsolvable,
- 1327. about, uh, the universe.
- 1328. Um, let's, uh...
Well, it has to be optimistic.
- 1329. Well, all right, why is life worth
living? That's a very good question.
- 1330. Um...
- 1331. Well, there are certain things,
I guess, that make it worthwhile.
- 1332. Uh, like what?
- 1333. OK, um, for me, uh...
- 1334. Ooh, I would say Groucho Marx,
to name one thing.
- 1335. Um, and Willie Mays.
- 1336. And, um... the second movement
of the Jupiter Symphony.
- 1337. And, um, Louis Armstrong's
recording of Potato Head Blues.
- 1338. Um, Swedish movies, naturally.
- 1339. Sentimental Education by Flaubert.
- 1340. Uh, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra.
- 1341. Um, those incredible apples
- 1342. and pears by Cezanne.
- 1343. Uh, the crabs at Sam Wo's.
- 1344. Um, Tracy'sface.
- 1345. Hi.
- 1346. Hi.
- 1347. I...
- 1348. What are you doing here?
- 1349. Well, I ran.
- 1350. I tried to call you on the phone,
but, uh, it was busy...
- 1351. so I knew that
was two hours' worth of...
- 1352. So I couldn't get a taxi cab, so I ran.
- 1353. Where you going?
- 1354. London.
- 1355. You're going to London now?
- 1356. What d'you... What d'you mean? If I got
over here two minutes later, you'd be...
- 1357. you'd be going to London?
- 1358. Well, let me get
right to the point then.
- 1359. I don't think you oughta go.
- 1360. I think I made a big mistake.
and I would prefer it if you didn't go.
- 1361. Oh, Isaac.
- 1362. I mean it. I know it looks real bad now,
but, uh, you know, it, uh...
- 1363. Are you seeing anybody?
Are you going with anybody?
- 1364. No.
- 1365. So... well...
- 1366. D'you still love me,
or has that worn off or what?
- 1367. Jesus, you... pop up...
- 1368. You don't call me
and then you suddenly appear.
- 1369. I mean... What happened
to that woman you met?
- 1370. Well, I'll tell you,
I don't see her any more.
- 1371. I made a mistake.
What d'you want me to say?
- 1372. I don't think you oughta go to London.
- 1373. Well, I have to go.
- 1374. I mean, all the plans
have been made, arrangements.
- 1375. I mean, my parents are there now
looking for a place for me to live.
- 1376. Well...
- 1377. Do you still love me or what?
- 1378. Do you love me?
- 1379. Well, yeah, that's what... Of course.
- 1380. That's what this is all about, you know.
- 1381. - Guess what? I turned 18 the other day.
- Did you?
- 1382. I'm legal, but I'm still a kid.
- 1383. You're not such a kid. 18 years old.
- 1384. They could draft you.
In some countries you'd be...
- 1385. - You look good.
- You really hurt me.
- 1386. It was not on purpose, you know.
- 1387. I mean, I, uh...
You know, it was... I mean...
- 1388. It was just the way
I was looking at things then.
- 1389. Well, I'll be back in six months.
- 1390. Six months! Are you kidding?
- 1391. Six months you're gonna go for?
- 1392. We've gone this long. I mean, what's
six months ifwe still love each other?
- 1393. Hey, don't be so mature, OK?
- 1394. I mean, six months is a long time.
- 1395. You're gonna be in the thea...
- 1396. working in the theatre
with actors and directors.
- 1397. You know, you go to rehearsal
and you hang out with those people.
- 1398. You have lunch a lot and before you know
it attachments form and... you know...
- 1399. I mean, you don't wanna get into that...
- 1400. In six months you'll be
a completely different person.
- 1401. Well, don't you want me
to have that experience?
- 1402. I mean, a while ago
you made such a convincing case.
- 1403. Yeah, of course I do, but, you know...
- 1404. I mean, I just don't want that thing
about you that I like to change.
- 1405. I've gotta make a plane.
- 1406. Come on, you don't... Come on.
- 1407. You don't... You don't have to go.
- 1408. Why couldn't you have
brought this up last week?
- 1409. Six months isn't so long.
- 1410. Not everybody gets corrupted.
- 1411. You have to have
a little faith in people.
