[holding shoes Balthazar has just given him]
These are old-man shoes.
[having noticed that Balthazar is wearing the same style of shoe]
I love them… a lot.
Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.
You’re one of THOSE kind of people.
What… what kind of people is that?
Can’t hang on to anything nice.
I guess I haven’t had enough practice.
Don’t worry about it. I shoulda known better. I mean… next time I’ll just take my wallet and burn it.
Let me guess: 40, married, marketing, two kids.
38, stripper/waitress,but born to be a singer.
Fuck you, I’m a teacher!
No, I was talking about me. You wanna see a dance? It’s 100 bucks.
[Being introduced to the Ramones]
What do you guys have for me?
We got four songs. I don’t wanna walk around with you, I don’t wanna be learned, I don’t wanna be tamed and I don’t wanna go down to the basement.
Lot of things you don’t wanna do.
Young Josh, Billy:
The space goes down, down baby, down, down the roller coaster. Sweet, sweet baby, sweet, sweet, don’t let me go. Shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. Shimmy, shimmy, rock. Shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. Shimmy, shimmy, rock. I met a girlfriend – a triscuit. She said, a triscuit – a biscuit. Ice cream, soda pop, vanilla on the top. Ooh, Shelly’s out, walking down the street, ten times a week. I read it. I said it. I stole my momma’s credit. I’m cool. I’m hot. Sock me in the stomach three more times.
I have men at my back, and you stand alone and defy me?
I’m not alone.
If some lives form a perfect circle, others take shape in ways we cannot predict or always understand. Loss has been a part of my journey. But it has also shown me what is precious. So has a love for which I can only be grateful.
