- No, we're not perfect for each other, Edward. We may be perfect for each other if we didn't live in the real world, but I live in the real world and I need a life that is more structured. I need a future that is more structured.
-I want to be the person that you want me to be, but I just can't.
You are. You are.
- I can't be that.
Hey, no, stop.
-I, I really wanted to be this person that you thought I was, I really did, but I'm just not that person. I'm, I'm cynical, I'm pragmatic.
-No, I am. I'm a realist.
You're afraid. You're afraid.
-No, I'm not afraid.
We've been through this so many times before.
- I'm not scared. I'm not scared. I'm unhappy. All right. I'm just really, really unhappy. You're so... You really are so wonderful and you're just so sensitive and romantic and...
Weak. That's right, yeah.
- What? I did not say you were weak.
You've said it so many times before.
- I did not call you weak.
You've said it before, so why don't you say it again? Weak.
Susan, keep seeing him if you have to, live with him, I don't care, but do not marry him. I understand what you see in Edward. I get it. ... He is a romantic. But he is also very fragile. I saw that when his father died. Don't... Don't do this. You'll regret it. And you'll only hurt Edward in the end. The things you love about him now are the things you'll hate in a few years. You may not realize it, but you and I are a lot more alike than you think.
- No. You're wrong. You and I are nothing alike.
Really? Just wait. We all eventually turn into our mothers.
Well, when you love someone, you work it out. You don't just throw it away. You have to be careful with it. You might never get it again.
-I can't do this with you anymore, Edward. I just can't keep doing this.
Susan... You can't just walk away from things all the time.
My ex-husband used to call me a nocturnal animal.
Why are you so driven to write?
-I guess it's a way of keeping things alive. You know, saving things that will eventually die. And if I write it down, then, it'll last forever.
You sound like your mother.
-Well, you always said that I reminded you so much of her, so... You know, this is exactly why I don't wanna read your work because you always get so fxcking defensive.
Yeah, of course I'm defensive! Do you know what it feels like to put yourself out on the line creatively and then have someone you love tell you that they don't understand it?
-No, I don't, because I'm not creative...
That's because you choose not to be.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: A rape of a teenage girl is shown briefly. The violence is very realistic and unnerving.
