Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin?
Mrs. Robinson: Will you come over here a minute?
Ben: Over there? Sure.
Mrs. Robinson: Will you unzip my dress? I think I'll go to bed.
Ben: Oh. Well, goodnight.
Mrs. Robinson: Won't you unzip my dress?
Ben: I'd rather not, Mrs. Robinson.
Mrs. Robinson: If you still think I'm trying to seduce you -
Ben: No, I don't. But I just feel a little funny.
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, you've known me all your life.
Ben: I know that. But I'm -
Mrs. Robinson: Come on. It's hard for me to reach. Thank you.
Ben: You're welcome.
Mrs. Robinson: What are you so scared of?
Ben: I'm not scared, Mrs. Robinson.
Mrs. Robinson: Then why do you keep running away?
Ben: Because you're going to bed. I don't think I should be up here.
Mrs. Robinson: Haven't you ever seen anybody in a
Ben: Yes, I have. But I just - Look - what if Mr. Robinson walked in right
Mrs. Robinson: What if he did?
Ben: Well, it would look pretty funny, wouldn't it?
Mrs. Robinson: Don't you think he trusts us together?
Ben: Of course he does. But he might get the
wrong idea. Anyone might.
Mrs. Robinson: I don't see why. I'm twice as old as you are. How could anyone
Ben: But they would! Don't you see?
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, I'm not trying to seduce you.
Ben: I know that. But please, Mrs. Robinson. This is difficult for me.
Mrs. Robinson: Would you like me to seduce you?
Mrs. Robinson: Is that what you're trying to tell me?
Ben: I'm going home now. I apologize for what I said. I hope you can forget
it. But I'm going home right now.
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin?
Mrs. Robinson: Will you bring up my purse before you go?
Ben: I have to go. Sorry.
Mrs. Robinson: I really don't want to put this on again. Won't you bring it
Ben: Where is it?
Mrs. Robinson: On the table in the hall.
Ben: Mrs. Robinson?
Mrs. Robinson: I'm in the bathroom.
Ben: Here is the purse.
Mrs. Robinson: Would you bring it up?
Ben: Well, I'll hand it to you. Come to the railing and I'll hand it up.
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, I am getting pretty tired of all this suspicion. Now
if you won't do me a simple favor I don't know what.
Ben: I'm putting it on the top step.
Mrs. Robinson: For God's sake, Benjamin, will you stop acting that way and
bring me the purse?
Ben: I'm putting it here by the door.
Mrs. Robinson: Will you bring it in to me?
Ben: I'd rather not.
Mrs. Robinson: All right. Put it in Elaine's room where we were.
Ben: Oh God. Oh, let me out.
Mrs. Robinson: Don't be nervous.
Ben: Get away from that door.
Mrs. Robinson: I want to say something first.
Ben: Jesus Christ.
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, I want you to know that I'm available to you, and if you won't sleep with
me this time...
Ben: Oh, my Christ.
Mrs. Robinson: If you won't sleep with me this time I want you to know that
you can call me up anytime you want and we'll make some kind of arrangement.
Mrs. Robinson: Do you understand what I -
Ben: Let me out.
Mrs. Robinson: Benjamin, do you understand what I just said?
Ben: Yes! Yes. Let me out!
Mrs. Robinson: I find you very
