Isaac Davis: You see, to me a great movie is with WC Fields. That's what I like. Or Grand Illusion. That's... I see that every time it's on television, if I'm aware of it. So what you got to eat here? Nothing. Oh, Jesus, what is this? You got a corned beef sandwich here from 1951, I think. Look at this. I mean...
Mary Wilkie: Yeah, I know, I know. I don't have time to cook.
Isaac Davis: Corned beef should not be blue. It's really terrible. Hey.
Mary Wilkie: What?
Isaac Davis: Come here.
Mary Wilkie: What're you doing?
Isaac Davis: What am I doing? You have to ask? I was kissing you flush on the mouth.
Mary Wilkie: I cannot get my life in any kind of order. It's just...
Isaac Davis: It's something I wanted to do for ages.
Mary Wilkie: Yeah, I know.
Isaac Davis: Do you? Cos I... I thought I was hiding it. I was trying to be real cool and casual.
Mary Wilkie: I thought you wanted to kiss me at the planetarium.
Isaac Davis: I did. I thought so. But you were going out with Yale then and I would never in a million years interfere... Did you want me to kiss you?
Mary Wilkie: I don't know what I wanted. I was so angry at Yale that day.
Isaac Davis: But you were so sexy. You were soaking wet from the rain and I had a mad impulse to throw you down on the lunar surface and commit interstellar perversion with you.
Mary Wilkie: I can't go from relationship to relationship. It's senseless. I can't do it.
Isaac Davis: Well, what... Are you still hung up on Yale? Is that the problem?
Mary Wilkie: I've got too many problems. I'm really not the person to get involved with. I'm trouble.
Isaac Davis: Hey, honey, Trouble is my middle name.
Mary Wilkie: What are you saying?
Isaac Davis: Actually, my middle name is Mortimer. I'm kidding.
Mary Wilkie: That was wonderful.
Isaac Davis: I'll say.
Mary Wilkie: I love being in the country.
Isaac Davis: It's very relaxing. The mosquitoes have sucked all the blood out of my left leg. Apart from that...
Mary Wilkie: Doesn't it make you feel better?
Isaac Davis: Yeah, you were dynamite, except I felt for about two seconds you were faking. Not a lot.
Mary Wilkie: No.
Isaac Davis: Yes. When you dug your nails into my neck, you were a little...
Mary Wilkie: Well, I guess I'm nervous around you.
Isaac Davis: Still?
Mary Wilkie: Well, yeah.
Isaac Davis: So crazy.
Mary Wilkie: Because I'd like everything to work out.
Isaac Davis: It will. You should leave everything to me. I'll make everything happen.
Mary Wilkie: D'you really promise? Because I like you. I feel good around you.
Isaac Davis: I don't blame you.
Mary Wilkie: Yeah, I mean... Yale was great, he was absolutely great, but he was married. And Jeremiah, my ex-husband. He was just this oversexed, brilliant kind of animal.
Isaac Davis: Hey, what am I? Grandma Moses?
Mary Wilkie: Not at all. No, no, no. You're much different.
Isaac Davis: Yeah?
Mary Wilkie: Yes. You're someone I could imagine having children with.
Isaac Davis: Really?
Mary Wilkie: Yeah.
Isaac Davis: Hit the lights. Go ahead. Turn 'em out. We'll trade fours.
