You can't control anything in your life when you have people running around in it.
No. You can't.
So I just steer clear of them. I have to. I have no choice. It's the only way I can keep a handle on things. Otherwise I wake up one morning and I don't know what I'm going to do next.
That's what my life is like too. That's why I fear I am not the one in the driver's seat. Because I never know what I will do next. From this moment to the next I don't know.
Ha! Well yeah, that's for sure.
What do you mean?
Well... you're here. I mean when you think about it, it's pretty tough to figure how someone can be at a wedding, and not just any wedding, but their own wedding, in Arizona and then BAM be on the highway and then after driving for days and days on end, just - by chance- taking arbitrarily one turn after the next- end up at my door.
I'm not asking you to apologize. It just seems amazing to me that you didn't go to some other place. I mean why didn't you go south for example.
If you'd gone south, you could still be driving. If you'd played your cards right you could have gone all the way down to Tierra del Fuego.
I didn't want to go Tierra del Fuego.
Well, why did you want to come here?
I didn't want to. I told you already. I just came.
Nobody just comes here. Nobody.
Why are you attacking me?
Who said I was attacking you?
I'm not attacking you. I'm simply pointing out that nobody just happens to... to-
Kiss a total stranger's ears
It's the same thing. We both just had impulses.
Impulses! Impulses! You drove three thousand miles on an impulse?
I got in my car on an impulse I don't remember the rest.
Listen! You did a gigantic unbelievable thing! I did a small-
Small! Small! Kissing somebody is not small! It's a hugely not small thing to do. It's intimate!
Woa! Woa! Woa! Hold on! There is something you gotta understand. Something I think we gotta get straight. I have worked very hard to have this... this life MY LIFE! I work- I cook- I come here and I live... I try to live... I've been trying to kind of live. That's all. It takes a certain amount of effort.
Yes. Just to live it takes a certain amount of effort. In fact it takes all my effort just to live and not to... to.. tear everything to shreds. And I do alright. I have been, for quite some time, doing alright... I thought I was doing alright. And now, now you come along and I'm like I am just holding onto the deck, just holding on but underneath right directly underneath, there is a current about to tear me right directly underneath there is a current about to tear me right the hell away from whatever it is, whatever little safe harbor I've managed to latch onto. I can feel it. I mean I'm in with the sharks now and I mean- Jesus Christ- what happened to you? Who are you? Why are you here? In my life?
It's not my fault.
I'm not saying it's your fault.
You are! And it's not! I told you already Id' go to a hotel or something. I want to go to a hotel or something.
There are no "hotels or something" around here. That's exactly why I'm here. That's the whole point.
Well, I'm sorry. I'm intruding. I really truly am. I understand you've got your life and all. I've got mine too. I am also trying very hard not to tear everything to shreds! Did that ever occur to you? That I am making a huge effort too? But what can I do? Here? Now? Ok. I know. I'll just sit over here.
What are you doing?
I'm using up as little of your privacy as I can.
That's very funny.
I'm not trying to be funny.
You're just going to sit over there in the corner.
Until the storm's over.
Until the storm's over! The storm might not be over till next July!
I don't give a hoot when the storm's over. I'm just going to sit here.
And I'm supposed to just go about my business while you just sit there- in that chair- in that corner.
Look- you know- you are not the only eperson in the world who would prefer at this particular time to be left alone.
Oh! Oh! Excuse me! I get it! You blast into my home, my sanctuary, from Arizona, and then you inform me that you'd like to be left alone.
At least I am trying to be polite, but yes, I would like to be alone. Yes, I wish you weren't here. Yes! As a matter of fact, I wish I'd come here on one of the weeks when you were on that oil rig. That's what I wish. Ok? How do you think it feels to wake up in Alaska, in some barn or whatever this is, with an angry hostile stranger-
I made you a cauldron of soup!
You cooked my shoes. And you've made it very clear that you don't want me here.
I don't want to be here.
Well, I don't want to be here either. You think I want to be here? I don't. I wanted to die.
