精彩对白欣赏:

1. This is why marriage is dumb, okay? It's dumb. You have a job here, and she's got a job there. You guys can't do anything because you're so connected, so then one of you has to get the shaft.

2. --Why haven't we once talked about the fact that you are upset that you're not running Clam Bar? You never talk about it.

--Because I'm a man, and men and women are different. We don't have to sit around and talk about our feelings.

3. And would you like to know why? Because these imaginary new donuts that you offer people, they may never arrive. Okay, they're not real. And me, personally, I am not the type of person who wants to sit around and wait for something that might never arrive when they know that the thing they have in front of them is...It's tasty! It's good, okay? And you know what? It's not about the age of the donut, it's about the flavor. Boom. And you know the other thing? The new donuts, they're going to get stale someday, too.

4. I got news for you, moron, your father and I, we're not even 90% right for each other. Not even 60, okay? But he's the love of my life.

5. The worst choice you can make is no choice at all.

6. I don't think that we can figure out all of our problems before we get married. And I'm pretty sure we'll have some after. But I promise you that I will just love you every step of the way. So, yes or no?

精彩对白片段:

Tom: Hey! Hey! Can I show you three options for our invitation card stock?

Violet: You sure can.

Tom: I'm super excited. Okay, we have got the...

Violet: I love you.

Tom: Aw! I love you, too.

Violet: I do. Something crazy happened today. Winton called me into the office and hinted that they might be extending my postdoc.

Tom: So, what does that mean for us, exactly? Um...

Violet: I think what it probably means is that we would stay here just for a little bit and then... Would you like some of this wine?

Tom: Nope.

Violet: No? Okay. Um, I think the first phase would be a few years, and then, potentially, if that went well, for longer.

Tom: It sounds like we're staying.

Violet: Look, I know our plans changed, but they changed because I did well, and I know it doesn't feel like that to you, but maybe it's a good thing that they changed.

Tom: For you.

Violet: Yes, for me, but... I've just worked so hard for my whole life for this. I feel like I'm on the verge, babe. And maybe it's okay for me to be selfish.

Tom: Well, if it's okay for you to be selfish, I guess everyone else can just figure it out on their own.

Violet: Okay, that came out wrong. That came out wrong.

Tom: No, I think you said exactly what you meant.

Violet: Academia's my life, Tom. I guess you just don't understand.

Tom: (SIGHING) Can I tell you something? It makes me feel like shit when you tell me I don't understand things. Okay. No, listen, I have news for you. I do understand. I understand everything, I just don't like it.

Violet: Well, I'm sorry. You're right.

Tom: It's just not nice.

Violet: Okay, look. I'm very excited about what happened today. Do you want to know something? As soon as I heard the news, I felt instantly terrified to tell you. Now, there's something wrong with that, that I feel like you can't share in this with me. Even a little.

Tom: I'm happy for you. (UNENTHUSIASTICALLY) Yay! We get to stay here!

Violet: You're being a prick.

Tom: Then I'll just try to be happy, too.

Violet: That's not being happy for me.

Tom: I want you to be happy.

Violet: That's not being happy for me. That is martyring yourself and then blaming me for your perceived lack of success.

Tom: Now... Now I have a lack of success?

Violet: Well, I don't think you do.

Tom: I have a lack of success now?

Violet: But you clearly think you do and that's the problem. The fact remains, Tom, that you work at a cool place, but you refuse to see it as that.

Tom: I ran a kitchen in San Francisco, okay?

Violet: Okay.

Tom: And you have no idea how it feels to be the guy in a relationship and not have a job that you're proud of. It's embarrassing.

Violet: Why haven't we once talked about the fact that you are upset that you're not running Clam Bar? You never talk about it.

Tom: Because I'm a man, and men and women are different. (MOCKINGLY) We don't have to sit around and talk about our feelings. What? There's nothing to say!

Violet: You say, "I'm upset," Tom! You say it!

Tom: Fine! You want to talk about it? Yes! I hate it here!

Violet: Thank you!

Tom: I hate it here!

Violet: Thank you for...

Tom: I think it sucks here! I think it sucks my fucking dick!

Violet: Great. Good for you.

Tom: I hate it! I hate it here!

Violet: Okay, okay, okay, but now we move forward. Now what should we do? Would you like to open up a Clam Bar here?

Tom: You can't get fresh clams here.

Violet: (EXHALING DEEPLY) I meant it as a metaphor.

(MIMICKING VIOLET EXHALING)

Tom: You know what? This is all very confusing. And I'm clearly overwhelmed. And I've gotta be honest, I think the best thing would be for me to just be alone right now, so that I can think.

Violet: Okay. I'll just give you some time then, shall I?

Tom: Well, don't go. I mean... I need you here.

Violet: What do you mean? You just told me you needed time alone. What do you want? I don't know what you want.

Tom: I don't want you to go.

Violet: Okay.

Tom: I just want to be alone with you here. Can you at least lay down?

Violet: Okay.

Tom: Like a normal human being?

Violet: Do you want me just to be...

Tom: I want...

Violet: Okay.

Tom: I'm trying to be alone.

Violet: Yeah.

Tom: (SIGHS)
