Some Girls Sam's Lines Scene
Terms in this set (34)
You're very careful with your things.
Yeah, I picked that up somewhere...
You must've, because you sure were never like that when I knew you. Back then...
Well, we were just kids, right?
Eighteen. When you dumped me, I mean. That's an adult.
True, but that's what it seemed like. To me. Kids.
Whatever. Whatever you say...
You are angry.
Maybe just a touch. Yep.
Huh. All right... Sam, I'm gonna be open with you here. Totally up front. Honest.
That's promising a lot...
I know, I know it is, but I'm gonna be, and, well, I just am. (Beat.) I think the reason we broke up back then-
Not we. You. You ended it.
It wasn't a "we" thing. "We" was when we were a couple, we decided to start dating, we would choose what movie to go to on a Friday night, but the finishing-it-off part? That was you...
I know that. I do. I do know it...So, yeah, I stopped calling, coming over, but it want any one thing that prompted it, it wasn't... and for some reason, I always had the idea that you thought your done something... some...
No...( Beat.) I... no.
Oh. 'Cause my mom said that the two of you had talked, and-not, like, recently, I mean, but back in the day, back whenever- and she...
... I never said that...
No, but implied it, insinuated that I'd led you to believe that you'd done something, and-
I don't think that was the case...
... and I just wanted you to know, as in better late than never, that it wasn't anything of the sort.
I know. I know that... I mean, why would I think that? I wouldn't.
Right, so I'm just reiterating for you, then- albeit a bit late in the game- you did nothing wrong.
It was me. All me. I needed to, ahh...
What? What did you "need"?
Or "wanted" to, I dunno. I felt, like, at the time... I wanted to have my freedom, do the college thing somewhere other than over at Community or maybe just pursue my writing stuff. Whatever. And you were a girl that I could sort of look at, you know, take a glance at and maybe... see her whole future.
A bit. Yeah. And that's not bad or anything, it's not, but you're just that type of woman. And I think, if I can say this...
... Go on, you're on a roll...
... History has proved me right. It has. You ended up almost exactly like I figured you would.
Oh, have I, now? (Beat.) Huh..
... Well, kinda. (Beat.) I mean, still here, with kids and your husband doing what I pretty much would've guessed he'd be doing... and back then, when I'm just this scared teenager staring eternity in the face , I could see myself with that produce manager's best on and I suppose I got nervous and backed out of the situation the best way I knew how... ( Beat.) So.
...He's not the produce manager. He runs the store. The whole thing.
He's the store manager. There is a difference.
... I am sorry. You're not mad, are you?
No, I'm fine.
Because I didn't want to...
I said I'm fine. Just believe me, okay? I believe you, so why don't you go ahead and believe me...
...All right. I'll...yeah. Fine.
...And that's really it? That's the whole reason why we suddenly just ended like that? Because you had a vision of working at some Safeway for the rest of your life?
Basically, yeah... I mean...
Not some other girl?
Umm, no, not that I... I don't, you know. I don't recall anybody else.
No? You don't?
'Cause I always had this vague, you know... this worry about that. Back in "the day". Back whenever...
No... we were going out for, like...
Two years. A little over... We were "promised" to each other for two years. (Beat.) And you never went to the prom with somebody else? Right?
...No. You know that. No, I even... I worked that night. On prom night. (Beat.) It was our senior spring, and after we broke up I was-
You, okay? You broke it off. Just say it... (Beat.) Look, I don't even wanna think about this, not at all, I don't. I'm a mother now... a wife and a mother and this is like some ancient Greek history! Why did you have to call me about this? Do this to me...? Huh?
I wanted to...I don't know. To just make sure that we were... okay.
Yeah, fine, yes... we're okay. A-OK. Is that what you needed? Is that gonna be enough to get you back to your something special life in... where is it, again?
New York. I have a place in Brooklyn now, but I teach up near... doesn't matter. It's all... New York. City.
Wow. Geez, it's amazing how... it's all still pretty fresh. You know? I mean, you think it's gone, put in some box under your bed, but God... somebody mentions a dance or a boy you knew and it's, like just right there. Instantly it's... there.
Yep. That's true.
Yeah. (Beat.) Guess it's partly due to the whole "virginity" thing...
...Right. I feel the same way.
Well, that's great. Terrific. At least we have that...
I am sorry about stirring up all the- It's almost a quarter of.
'Kay. Thanks...( Beat.) I know that you're looking at my face. I feel you doing that-it's a skin thing. Sometimes after a baby your pigment can get all... doesn't matter. Anyway, take care. Good to see you, I guess...
Hey, Sam.... you, too. Seriously, I hope I didn't...
