Porque jogar, joga-se à bola. Não se joga ao Amor.
Porque quando se quer um pão vai-se à padaria e diz-se que se quer um pão.
Porque não se gere as expectativas dos outros.
Laura : Would you listen to me. I just said yes and I'm already bad-mouthing my future husband.
Paul : Where did this yes come from?
Laura : You really don't understand why I said yes to him? It was because you said no to me.
Paul : Because... Because I said no to you?
Laura : I mean, the whole situation is just one big... fucking no. I'm not blaming you.I'm not accusing you. I'm just...
Paul : Did you expect a different reaction? In your... fantasy... How would I respond to you saying... that you are... Let's say, "in love with me"?
Laura : First of all, take the quotation marks off the "in love with me." It's insulting. And stop with the fantasy talk, because fantasies are for silly little girls. You know, we're talking about reality, which is that I'm in love with you.
Paul : But I still... That's reality. I still want to talk about fantasies for a minute. Not the fantasy of a silly little girl, but the fantasy of a grown smart woman.
Laura : Please, let's not do that. That's beneath my dignity.
Paul : Well, I don't think there's anything beneath our dignity if it takes us someplace our dignity refuses to go.
Paul : You didn't answer my question, Laura. You were 15 years old, your father was... grieving,completely dependent on you. David must have seemed like a life raft. Just as just perhaps I am now... from Andrew. Perhaps I'm an alternative to everything that Andrew represents... Dependency, anxiety. But I am not a realistic option for you. This is a safe place where you can come, like David at the beach.
Laura : Yes, but with one big difference.
Paul : What's that?
Laura : I don't want you to adopt me, I want you to fuck me.
