影片对白

Simon Wyler: About the... the other day it was not a good moment. I was in a hell of a hurry.

Alex: Of course. You've got some nice pieces here.

Simon: Oh, yeah. Music's fine, music helps. It's like Nietzsche says: "Life would be senseless--"

Alex: "Without music."

Simon: I guess I told you that, huh? Pour yourself a drink. Can you appreciate a good wine by now?

Alex: You bet.

Simon: You know, you'll have to forgive your father for being curious but where have you been all these years? I thought your Kerouac days were behind you.

Alex: I'm sorry, what?

Simon: What? Oh, you can come up, if you like. 

Alex: What are you working on?

Simon: Oh, I'm just--I'm just remembering things. It's not such an easy job, let me tell you. Nor is it particularly innocent, in my case. Your father is writing his memoirs.

Alex: Are we in it?

Simon: What do you think? Do you wanna be?

Alex: Do you?

Simon: Of course. You were all a part of your father's life.

Alex: Why are you talking to me in the third person?

Simon: Well, I--I don't--Because I'm writing about myself, I suppose. Why, doesn't it suit you?

Alex: I thought you might like these.

Simon: What are these? Something you've been working on?

Alex: No, they're--They're yours. From a house I just bought on the lake.

Simon: Oh, yes, I heard. They said some sleazy little condo developer had snapped it up. Oh, come on, indulge your father. Can't you take a little joke, for God's sake? Come on. Tell me. Where have you been? I really want to know.

Alex: I was trying to forget you. Or forgive you.

Simon: Did you succeed?

Alex: No. Let me know if you need any help remembering.

Simon: Oh, yeah, I will.
