The Romantics

Tom: Has it ever occurred to you that I might need a woman like Lila?
Laura: And what kind of woman is that?
Tom: I don’t know. Somebody happy!
Laura: Meaning numb?
Tom: Somebody practical.
Laura: Meaning busy!
Tom: Somebody confident.
Laura: Meaning rich!
Tom: Somebody stable.
Laura: Meaning frigid!
Tom: Somebody who doesn’t have to tear other people down just to build herself back up!
Laura: So in other words, your polar opposite!
Tom: Yeah, yeah, maybe…
Laura: Well haven’t you heard opposites attract and then… then they fucking bore each other to death!
Tom: You know, boring is better than maddening.
Laura: I’d rather die of excitement.
