It was a nice walk. Lacking in "super deep" conversation, really, but that didn't take any of the fun out of it. And as Jordan pointed out, we managed to hang out for more than an hour at a time without being mean to each other at all. Next time, though, Jordan, I'll have some "embarrassing" questions ready. I'll make a list or something. How's that sound?
I should go to bed. I think I'll post some movie quotes first.
"Well, if you must know, it was because he was very jealous, and I had these days of the week underpants."
"Ehhhh. I'm sorry. I need the judges ruling on this. Days of the weeks underpants?"
"Yes. They had the days of the week on them, and I thought they were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, 'You never wear Sunday.' It was all suspicious. Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday? And I told him, and he didn't believe me."
"They don't make Sunday."
"Because of God."
"You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you."
"You realize of course that we could never be friends."
"What I'm saying is - and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form - is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
"That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved."
"No you don't."
"Yes I do."
"No you don't."
"Yes I do."
"You only think you do."
"You're saying I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?"
"No, what I'm saying is they all WANT to have sex with you."
"They do not."
"They do not."
"How do you know?"
"Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her."
"So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?"
"No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too."
"What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?"
"Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story."
"Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then."
"I guess not."
"That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York."
"Would you like to have dinner?... Just friends."
"I thought you didn't believe men and women could be friends."
"When did I say that?"
"On the ride to New York."
"No, no, no, I never said that.... Yes, that's right, they can't be friends. Unless both of them are involved with other people, then they can.... This is an ammendment to the earlier rule. If the two people are in relationships, the pressure of possible involvement is lifted.... That doesn't work either, because what happens then is, the person you're involved with can't understand why you need to be friends with the person you're just friends with. Like it means something is missing from the relationship and why do you have to go outside to get it? And when you say 'No, no, no it's not true, nothing is missing from the relationship,' the person you're involved with then accuses you of being secretly attracted to the person you're just friends with, which, you probably are. I mean, come on, who the hell are we kidding, let's face it. Which brings us back to the earlier rule before the ammendment, which is men and women can't be friends."
"You take someone to the airport, its clearly the beginning of the relationship. That's why I have never taken anyone to the airport at the beginning of a relationship."
"Because eventually things move on and you don't take someone to the airport and I never wanted anyone to say to me, How come you never take me to the airport anymore?"
"It's amazing. You look like a normal person but actually you are the angel of death."
"I took her to a place that wasn't human. She actually meowed."
"You made a woman meow?"
"The fact that you're not answering leads me to believe that (a) You're not home, (b) You're home but you don't want to talk to me, or (c) You're home, desperately want to talk to me, but you're trapped under something heavy. If it's either (a) or (c), please give me a call."
