Rabbit Hole《兔子洞》精讲之一

Gabby: How's it going?

Howie: Good, good, good. Hanging in there.

Gabby: You sure?

Becca: Hmm.

Howie: Yeah. Hey, Kevin.

Kevin: Hi, Howie.

Howie: Hi. We um, we just...we found out that Becca's sister is pregnant. So...

Becca: Howie, hey.

Howie: What?

Gabby: That can be hard, I remember when my cousin got pregnant-

Becca: Yeah, it's not really a big deal.

Gabby: Okay. If you wanna talk about it though, you know the group's here.

Becca: Yeah, I don't think so. "Hey everybody, fresh meat."

Howie: Becca, be nice.

Gabby: Doesn't she remind of you of Lydia? There was this woman in the group a couple years ago.

Kevin: It was four. Four years ago.

Gabby: Well it doesn't really matter when she was here, my point is that she reminds me of Lydia. She really wasn't into the support group model at first.

Becca: How long have you been in Group?

Kevin: It'll be eight years in June.

Howie: Oh, I didn't... I didn't realize it was that long.

Gabby: Yeah, we're the veterans. You know, for us, it's a good way to touch base. Everyone's on a different schedule...

Howie: Of course.

Man in the group: She, uh, she visits me sometimes. In dreams. And she tells me it's okay. And she's with God. And we have some good days. Then you think that if you have enough good days it might actually get better. You know, it does get better. And then...It was her anniversary last week.

The man’s wife: A year last Tuesday.

Man in the group: And it just starts all over again. We just have to remind each other that it was just part of God's plan. And we can't know why. Only God can know why.

The man's wife: God had to take her. He needed another angel.

Man in the group: He needed another angel.

Becca: Why didn't he just make one? Another angel. I mean, he's God after all. Why didn't he just make another angel? Hmm? Just put...Just putting it out there...I'd like to go. I think we're gonna go. Is that alright?

Howie: Excuse us.


Howie: They're talking, it's their time, and you have to respect that.

Becca: Come on.

Howie: I mean, you sit there for weeks and you don't say a word.

Becca: I'm sorry. I can't stand the god-freaks. You know that.

Howie: But they're not all like that. Kevin and Gabby aren't.

Becca: No. Kevin and Gabby are professional wallowers. I mean come on? Eight years, Howie. Eight. If that's what you want to become, then...

Howie: If you want to take a break-

Becca: No, not a break, I'm done.

Howie: I know the Izzy stuff got under your skin.

Becca: Please don't do that. Please. One semester of Psychology fifteen years ago and suddenly you can analyze...

Howie: Well Jesus, Becca.

Becca: I don't like the group. I gave it a try, and it's not for me.

Howie: Okay. It's not for you.

Becca: Thank you. Do you mind if we not eat here? 'Cause eh...nothing's really jumping out at me.
