Now listen to me and listen to me good! When your wife, on her honeymoon, asks you to cock her, you cock her good, God damn it!
You know, sometimes I wonder…
Well… if I hadn’t been Fox Books and you hadn’t been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met…
Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, ”Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?”
And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we’d fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night.
Well, who fights about that?
Well, some people. Not us.
We would never.
I gotta go.
Well, let me ask you something. How can you forgive this guy for standing you up and not forgive me for this tiny little thing of… of putting you out of business?
[Kathleen starts to cry]
Oh, how I wish you would.
I really have to go.
Yeah, well… you don’t want to be late.
Difficult, not impossible.
All more proof you’re insane.
Why do you look so impressed?
What about me? Am I your friend? Or am I just some… some widget to help you make Sylvia feel better about herself? Why did you invite me to be part of your book club? No, what went through your mind the first time you saw me? ”There’s a man who is *dying* to read every book Jane Austen ever wrote.” Is that what you thought?
But I thought, ”What a beautiful woman. I hope she looks over at me.” I thought if I read your favorite books that you would read mine. But no… no, no. You just want to be obeyed. That’s why you have dogs.
So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.
You sold your soul so many times nobody’s buying anymore
Before you came into my life I could make all kinds of decisions, now I can’t, I’m addicted, I have to know what you think!
[holds up cufflinks]
What do you think?
George, I think you are the most selfish human being on the planet.
Well that’s just silly. Have you met everybody on the planet?
We are all just one small adjustment away from making our lives work.
