” (The Train)
Edit Location notes: the train is en route from Budapest, Hungary, to Vienna, Austria, which is usually about a three-hour journey by rail. Scene trivia: Celine is reading “Madame Edwarda; Le Mort; Histoire de l'œil” by Georges Bataille. Jesse is reading “All I Need Is Love” by Klaus Kinski (autobiography). Also, the couple that argues in German is recognized to have Austrian accents. (We see a middle-aged couple sitting in the front of the coach car, on the left of the screen. Celine is sitting across the aisle from them, on the right of the screen, reading a book.)
Woman: Kannst Du sie bald auswendig? (Can you tell me what is so interesting?) Man: Es wird dich nicht interessieren, aber es steht etwas ueber dich in der Zeitung. 70,000 Frauen sind dem Alkohol verfallen. Du bist eine davon. (It won't interest you, but there's something written about you in the newspaper. 70,000 women are addicted to alcohol. You're one of them.) Woman: Das trifft mich ueberhaupt nicht. Wenn hier jemand dem Alkohol verfallen ist, dann bist es du. Schau dich doch mal in den Spiegel. Schaust Du Dich manchmal in den Spiegel? (That doesn't concern me, if someone is addicted to alcohol then it's you, just look at you in the mirror, you look at yourself in the mirror sometimes?) Man: Bei mir hat es einen Grund, ich bin mit dir verheiratet. (I have a reason to do it, I'm married to you.) Woman: Koenntest du diese verdammte Zeitung endlich weglegen jetzt. (Put the damn newspaper away already!) Man: Das mach ich jetzt seit 15 jahren. Koenntest du mir den Gefallen tun und mich endlich in Ruhe lassen. (I'm doing this since 15 years now, could you do me a favor and just leave me alone?)
(Jesse appears on camera briefly for the first time.) Woman: Ich lass dich so gern in Ruhe, aber ich hab einen Vorschlag. Du lasst mich auch in Ruhe. Ich hab einen wunderbaren Vorschlag, du ziehst zu deiner Mutter und du kannst alle deine Kochbuecher mitnehmen. (I'll gladly let you alone, I suggest you let me alone too. I have a great suggestion, you move to your mother and take all your cookbooks with you.) Man: Das ist ein wunderbarer Vorschlag, den unterbreitest du mir ungefaehr zwei mal im Monat. (That's a wonderful suggestion, you bug me with that about twice a month.) (She slaps his newspaper down, and out of his hands, then grabs the paper.) War das jetzt wirklich notwendig? War das notwendig? (Was that now really necessary? Was that necessary?) (Disturbed by the couple‟s fighting, Céline stands up, takes her bag from the overhead rack, and moves to another seat about halfway toward the back of the car. As she settles into her new seat, she looks across the aisle at Jesse. He looks back. She looks at Jesse one more time after picking up her book.) Man: Geh zu deiner Mutter. (Go back to your mother.) Man: “Geh zu deiner Mutter zurueck,” ich kann es nicht mehr hoeren. immer das Gleiche . immer das Gleiche. Ich kann es nicht mehr hoeren. (“Go back to your mother,” I can‟t take it anymore. Always the same. Always the same. I can‟t take it anymore.) Woman: Das ist so langweilig! (This is so boring!) Man: Ja, du bist langweilig! (Yes, you‟re boring!)
Woman: Ja, du auch. (Yes, you too.) Man: Ich kann doch diese Wohnung nicht dem Chaos preisgeben. (I cannot expose this apartment to that Chaos) Woman: Das Chaos ist alleinschon deine Sache. Ich behalte...Ich kann‟s nicht behalten, die Katzen. (The Chaos is just your thing. I keep…I can‟t keep it, the cats) Man: Apropos Katzen. (Appropriate, the cats.) Woman: Ja? (Yes?) Man: Wieder vergessen! (Again forgot it!) Woman: Wer hat das Sheba nicht gekauft? DU hast das nicht gekauft! Ich geh' jetzt in den Speisewagen. Nimm das Geld mit. (Who didn‟t buy the ***Sheba? YOU haven‟t bought it! I‟m going now in the lounge car. Take the money with you) Man: Jetz' bleib doch einen Augenblick. (Now, just stay for a moment.) Woman: Ich moechte nicht, dass du mit mir kommst. (I don‟t want that you are coming with me.) Man: Wart' doch einen Augenblick. (Wait a moment.) Woman: Wie geht diese scheiss Tuer auf?! (How do I open this fucking door?) (Céline looks up from book, disturbed. She moves to another seat, across from Jesse. They glance over at each other. The woman who
was arguing with her husband leaves the car, walking down the aisle with her husband following her between Jesse and Celine. They look at each other, smile then Céline looks away.) Jesse: (Still looking in Celine‟s direction.) Do you have any idea what they were arguing about? (Points toward the exit.) Céline: (Glances up at him, looks over.) Jesse: Do you…do you speak English? Céline: Yeah. No, I'm sorry, my German is not very good. (Jesse leans back, disappointed. Celine pauses for a second, then continues.) Have you ever heard that as couples get older, they lose their ability to hear each other? Jesse: No. Céline: Well, supposedly, men lose the ability to hear higher-pitched sounds, and women eventually lose hearing in the low end. I guess they sort of nullify each other, or something. Jesse: I guess. Nature's way of allowing couples to grow old together without killing each other. (Céline smiles, small laugh, turns away.) What are you reading? (She shows him.) Oh, yeah. Céline: How bout you? Jesse: Umm. (Looks down, then laughs as he shows her, and she smiles.) (Couple returns to car, still arguing, albeit a lot calmer.) Woman: Typisch! Sind ihre? Wirklich so gehuepft, dass du sie dauernd anstarren musst? (Can you tell me why you were always staring at her?) Man: Vergiss es. (Forget it.) Jesse: Look, I was thinking about going to the lounge car sometime soon. Would you like to come with me? Céline: (Nods.) Yeah. Jesse: Okay.
(*** Scene trivia: “Sheba” is a brand of cat food.)
(They get up and leave the coach car. Jesse “punches” the automated door mechanism as they enter the lounge car.)
Scene II – “You‟re American? Are You Sure?” (The Lounge Car) Edit
Location notes: the train continues en route from Budapest, Hungary, to Vienna, Austria. Jesse: So how do you speak such good English? Céline: I went to school for a summer in Los Angeles. (Points to table.) This fine here? Jesse: Yeah, this is good. (They sit.) Céline: Then I spent some time in London. How do you speak such good English? Jesse: Me? I'm American. Céline: You're American? Jesse: Yeah. Céline: Are you sure? Jesse: (Innocently.) Yeah. Céline: (Laughing.) No, I'm joking. I knew you were American. And of course, you don't speak any other language, right? Jesse: (Catching on to the joke.) Yeah, yeah, I get it. So I'm the crude, dumb, vulgar American who doesn't speak any other language and has no culture, right? But, I tried. I took French for four years in high school. When I first got to Paris, I stood in line at the metro station. I was practicing. (Gestures with his hand to show how hard he was trying.) “Une billet, s'il vous plaît. Une billet s'il vous plait…” (One ticket please. One ticket please…) You know… Céline: (Interrupts him, corrects his pronunciation.) UN billet. Jesse: Un. Whatever. Un, Un. (Laughs.) Un billet s'il vous plaît, un billet
(Pause. I'm flying out of there tomorrow. (Pause. um. Jesse: Oh. You know I had a friend in Madrid. Jesse: Oh. Céline: That's great.. three weeks. or just on your own? Jesse: Uh.. but. I've been riding the trains the past two. is what I did. been good for you? . (Pauses and swallows. “Uh. My classes start next week.. Jesse: I've just been. umm. I got one of those Eurail passes. Céline: Vienna? What's there? Jesse: Uh.) Uh.) So. uh. so anyway. and. I look at this woman.” you know. uh I need a ticket to get to. yeah. I'm just traveling around. Céline: Madrid? That's nice. has this trip. ye. back to Paris.s'il vous plaît. sure.(Indecisive. La Sorbonne. I was visiting my grandmother. you know? Jesse: Well. I have no idea. you coming from Budapest? Céline: Yeah. So. And I start saying. and I get up there. Céline: You were visiting friends. around Europe.) Hey.) She's okay. you know.. I don't really know what I'm on. you're still in school? Where do you go? Céline: Yeah. where are you headed? Céline: Well. yeah. listen. How's she? Céline: (Laughing. Céline: Okay.) How about you? Where are you going? Jesse: Uh. Céline: Aha. Jesse: Yeah. before breaking the slience. Jesse: She's alright? Céline: She's fine. I'm going to Vienna. and my mind goes completely blank. You on holiday? Jesse: Uh.
Céline: Wait. is you get three hundred and sixty-five people from cities all over the world. Céline: What do you mean? Jesse: Well. boring things everybody has to do every day of their fucking life? Jesse: I was going to say the poetry of day to day life. you say the way you say it. to do these twenty-four hour documents of real time. Jesse: Alright. for weeks on end. Some friends of mine are these cable access producers.. You know. capturing life as it„s lived. taking the long shower. reading the paper. yeah. Jesse: For a television show. and. tell me. eating a little breakfast.. umm. wait. uh. it would start with uh. Céline: Who's gonna want to watch this? .Jesse: Yeah. cable access? (Céline shakes her head. making a little coffee. umm. Céline: What kind of ideas? Jesse: You want to hear one? Céline: Yeah. I had this idea. you know. right. uh.. you have ideas that you ordinarily wouldn't have.. okay? Céline: Um-hmm.. right? What you do. and they have to put it on. Jesse: No listen.it sucked. Right? And I have this idea for this show that would last twenty-four hours a day for a year straight.) I like that. sitting. and. a guy waking up in the morning.. for instance. do you know what that is.) What? Jesse: No. sure.) Umm. you know. I dunno. uh. you know. Céline: (Laughs. looking out the window has actually been kinda great... you know. but (Celine starts laughing) you know. Céline: (Laughs. Well. uh. Um.Anybody can produce a show real cheap.. I'll say it the way I say it. I'll tell ya. it's had its. you know. you know.. think about it like this. it's been... All those mundane.
the key.I mean. Jesse: Thanks. (Scene fades. I mean. you know. so that they could play continuously. (Waiter approaches the table. It„s just. while waiter walks away.) You know what? Not service-oriented. or a lawyer. The camera begins to pan out. (Laughs. that a dog. it„s beautiful. (Laughs. or having children. think about it like this. the key (squints his eyes as if perplexed). as an interior designer. I don't know. city to city. an observation about Europe. or else it just wouldn't work.Jesse: Well. trying to take some money out.. I can. Like twentyfour boring hours. Céline: Oh. I'd say to my . but on people? Jesse: Yeah! Céline: Hmm. but a guy. or something like that. looks like a complete moron? Céline: So. no? Jesse: Yeah. as his voice fades out. is so beautiful? You know. hands them menus. or getting married. you know. you know I mean. sure. standing at a bank machine. „cause it would have to play all the time.) Céline: You know my parents have never really spoken of the possibility of my falling in love.. it„s like a National Geographic program. where he falls asleep right after. Jesse: What do you think? Céline: Yeah. they wanted me to think of a future career.. Jesse: People would talk about that episode. Why is it. and like a three minute sex scene. Jesse: I dunno.) I can.. alright. if you wanted to. it is. I mean.) Céline: Thank you. Even as a little girl.) I can see it. and. then returns to lounge car an unknown amount of time later. I mean. that would be a GREAT episode. getting these tapes from town to town. you and your friends could do one in Paris. you know. you know. as a. sorry. sleeping in the sun. (Pause. Céline: Yeah.thing that kind of haunts me is the distribution.
even when they're wrong. and she disappeared. It just kind of let me know how ambiguous everything was. you know. Anyway. Céline: Mm-hmm.” and he'd say. I hate it. And uh. Jesse: Hmm. Jesse: No one was ever mean about it. I could see my grandmother.” I'd say I wanted to be an actress. “TV newscaster.. uh. you know? By the time I was in high school. it„s this passive-aggressive shit. and supportive. you know. I was in the backyard. this magical time. “journalist. and like are basically nice. Céline: But you know what. I've never seen anything like that since. And I was just glad that I saw that. I mean. and then I dropped the hose. Jesse: Well. my mother first told me about death. if your parents never really fully contradict you about anything. you know.” I'd say I wanted to have a refuge for stray cats. shrugs shoulders) doing just the opposite. I always knew when they were lying to me. And she was just standing there. I really hate it. playing.. and you could make a rainbow. I could never get very excited about other people's ambitions for my life. it„s. I remember childhood as this. I . uh. and my whole family had just visited them in Florida. and do it in such a way that. you know. I do. Jesse: Right. despite all that kind of bullshit that comes along with it. and I tell my parents. It„s just.. for a long time. I was dead set on listening to what everybody thought I should be doing with my life. you know what I mean. and I looked at her. But. uh. Céline: You're really lucky you can have this attitude towards death. And so I was doing that. you know. “I want to be a writer. sit me down give me big rap on how when people die you never see them again. moneymaking ventures. and he'd say. you know. and my sister had just taught me how to take the garden hose. and through the mist.dad. I let go of the nozzle. and he'd say. smiling at me. “veterinarian. You know. I was about three. And they. I don't know. I always had a pretty good bullshit detector when I was a kid. But…I knew what I'd seen. (holds his hand up to demonstrate the garden hose technique) you could spray it into the sun. then I held it there. Céline: It makes it even harder to officially complain. three and a half years old. And then finally. My greatgrandmother had just died. and how I'd imagined it. I remember when. And so I went back inside. and just kind of (shakes head. it„s this.” It was this constant conversion of my fanciful ambition into these practical.... even death.
but I'm too scared. I bet. you know. when you know for sure you're gonna die. many trains coming from the east from Budapest really enter Vienna somewhere in the southeast and travel some kilometers back to stop at the Westbahnhof which is a "dead end station.) When I'm in a plane. I mean. I can see the explosion.) Alright. come… Céline: I can't help it. no? Jesse: Yeah. what a drag.think I'm afraid of death twenty-four hours a day. it„s gonna haunt me the rest of my life. Jesse: Yeah? Céline: You get off here. (Train stops. and I'm so scared of those few seconds of consciousness before you're gonna die." (Jesse has been up from the table for an unknown amount of time. as the train slows down. uh.) Scene III – “Think Of This As Time Travel” (Arriving in Vienna) Edit Location notes: the train arrives in the Westbahnhof station in Vienna. me too.) Jesse: (Returns to the table with his bag and jacket. It„s exhausting. whatever. it„s safer. As far as we know. you know. I wish I had met you earlier. Céline: Yeah. (Pauses. you know. Jesse: Oh. I can't help it. but if I don't ask you this. I really like talking to you. it„s just. (She looks out window and points.. I swear. then sits down. I have an admittedly insane idea. It was really nice to meet you. I can't stop thinking that way. (Jesse laughs.) I think this is Vienna. scene fades. Jesse: Yeah.) I want to keep talking to you. I can see it. I could have flown to Paris. that's why I'm in a train right now. I know the statistics say na-na-na. Céline: Really exhausting. looking out the window. you . (Jesse makes an explosion sound effect) I can see me falling through the clouds.. Céline: What? Jesse: Um. We see Celine sitting alone.
but. and mouths the words “Come on. great. Jesse takes Celine‟s bag from her. still unsure. so here's the deal. to find out that you're not missing out on anything. but I feel like we have some kind of uh. Jesse: (Whispering under his breath.) So listen. (Points at himself. (Céline smiles. from then. .) Jesse: Alright. and you're married. ten. You start to blame your husband. I'm just as big a loser as he is. Céline: What would we do? Jesse: Umm. so I was just going to walk around. and you're really happy. and.) Well. Céline: (Surprised by the question. Right? Céline: Yeah. Think of it like this. what this really could be is a gigantic favor to both you and your future husband. Jesse: Yeah. uh. you made the right choice.) Yeah! (Jesse gets off the train. uh. and smiles. (Motions toward the door with both thumbs. me too. It'll be fun. and it would be a lot more fun if you came with me. and what MIGHT have happened if you'd picked up with one of them. See. uh. I don't know. Only your marriage doesn't have that same energy that it used to have. you know. and walks to his left. okay. And if I turn out to be some kind of psycho. You should get off the train with me here in Vienna. Umm-uh. twenty years. right? (Céline starts laughing a bit. and come check out the town. You start to think about all those guys you've met in your life. before stepping down to the platform.) Jesse: We should get a locker for all this stuff. pausing for a moment to look to her right. I have no idea what your situation is. and I don't really have enough money for a hotel. (Speaking very quickly.) Let me get my bag. you know. This is what we should do. All I know is I have to catch an Austrian Airlines flight tomorrow morning at nine-thirty. connection. totally unmotivated. jump ahead. I'm one of those guys.”) Céline: (Thinks. you just get on the next train. alright. Come on. and they begin walking down the platform.know. well. you know.) What? Jesse: Come on. so think of this as time travel.) That's me. to now. to find out what you're missing out on. Celine follows him. totally boring. right.
Jesse: Yeah.But it„s alright. Céline: Yeah. (They walk a few steps. Céline: I'm Céline. Jesse: Yeah.) Céline: This is kind of weird. “Jesse James”? No.Céline: Okay. Let's ask these guys. of course. Let's go to some places.. Zollambrucke). It's James. this is great.) Scene IV – “I Am The Cow” (The Bridge) Edit Location notes: the green footbridge is called Zollamtssteg (or. Look at your book.) Céline: You mean. Jesse: This is a nice bridge.) My name? Uh.. actually. and is located between the 1st and 3rd district. Just Jesse. sprechen Sie English? (Do you speak English?) Man with jacket: Ja. (Puts bag down and offers hand.) Céline: What's your name? Jesse: (Stops. right? It„s okay. (They approach two men who are looking over the bridge at the water below. Um. I feel a little awkward. excuse me uh. Jesse: No. across the Wienfluss. not far from the Donaukanal. alternatively. Man with tie: Couldn't you speak German for a change? . (They enter the station. let's go to some places. we're in Vienna. Céline: Yeah. it's Jesse. (They shake hands.) Jesse: Excuse me. no. this is kind of weird isn't it?

Communists… Man with jacket: Russians. part-time actors. you know.. what could you be expecting? Jesse: (Perplexed. it was a joke. Man with jacket: Uh. not professional actors uh.

Céline: Great.. great. well.
I'm going to ask you. Céline: Of course. Scene V – “It‟s Q & A Time” (The Streetcar) Edit Location notes: Jesse and Celine ride an electric streetcar. Celine: Great. Alright? Céline: So.

And my friend Emma had a big.) „Well.Jesse: Jean-Marc Fleury? Céline: I remember we were at this summer camp together. no? Jesse: Yes. You know. then I think this is the opportune time to tell you that I happen to be a fantastic swimmer. I went to see him swim a few times. Céline: So its my turn.

Céline: Yeah. meet again very soon. no. And then he officially asked me out on a date. really. he had bleached out chlorine hair and green eyes. Céline: Oh. So one day I was cutting. it's your turn.. you know across the field.) Yeah. and you know I pretended I didn't like him. promised we would keep writing forever. Jesse: Okay. and he came walking up beside me. And he was so sexy. I was so afraid of what I might do. he'd shave the hair off his legs and arms. Céline: Really? Jesse: Yeah. You know I was. Jesse: Did you? Céline: Of course not. and. And he turned to me and said.. Uh.

Is it. yeah.Those are two very different questions.. You know. Do you know Playboy magazine? Céline: Oh. . giving love? Was it a beautiful thing? Not really. I knew Crystal. I mean.my turn now.

I hate when I am in foreign countries. Céline: Uh. Jesse: Most people. probably. You know it„s very subtle. lose my temper. so. I had a thought the other day that was kind of a-qualifies as a problem. really. (Jesse takes that in. Céline: What is it? Jesse: Well. okay. the media. like. Céline: Ah. So it„s my turn. do you believe in reincarnation? Céline: Yeah. I don't know. and things like that. um. really.' (She mimics vomiting. it„s so cute. especially in America. it was a thought I had on the train. you know. but you know. to make them feel better about their boring life. like. a lot of people talk about the past lives. you know. you know. you know. or say anything about anything. it„s a new form of fascism.. what else? I hate. alright. I can't stand that. yeah.um. and even if they don't believe in it in some specific way. Jesse: The media? Céline: Yeah.okay. I hate being told by a strange man. they are trying to control our minds. it„s so french. they are the worst. I hate.. list a couple. Jesse: Yes.. okay. Céline: You're going to answer.

Jesse: You. people have some kind of notion of an . no.Jesse: Okay. a strange man in the street. I hate that the media. they always go 'oh. alright.. or they don't give a shit. its interesting.) I hate that. people are dying. you know. you know.) Um. Jesse: Is that all? Céline: Well. there's a lot of things. Each time I wear black. or like. I'll answer. to smile. Céline: What? Jesse: Um.
is that why we're all so scattered? You know. Because if they are.) This place is pretty neat. near Mariahilfer Straße.. right? Now. that represents a five thousand-to-one split of each soul in just the last fifty thousand years.) Do you want to go see if that listening booth still works? Céline: Yeah. is that why we're all so specialized? Céline: Wait a minute. you know. so. I mean. U2 Babenberger Strasse stop. . Céline: Yeah. we're like these tiny fractions of people. its a totally scattered thought. if we all have our own. Céline: Yeah. You know.) I agree with you. (Finds an album. (unsure.. Public transit: U3 Neubaugasse stop. right. but laughing. A friend of mine told me about her. Ten thousand years ago.de/cityguide/wien/tipps.) Have you ever heard of this singer? (He shakes his head. Jesse: Hang on. and shows it to Jesse. Jesse: Let's get off this damn tram. right? Céline: Yeah. Jesse: (Walks up to Céline. Well. there are not even a million people on the planet. walking. I know. I know. like. who is browsing a rack of LP‟s. at best.. there's like two million people on the planet.. there's even a listening booth over there. okay.. (They exit. Now.I don't. this is my thought. Jesse: (Pointing to booth in back. which is like a blip in the earth's time.html?id=872660. Jesse: Okay. individual..eternal soul. or bus 57A Köstlergasse stop.) I think she's American. Fifty thousand years ago. Web: http://cityguide.msn. I'm not sure I. there's between five and six billion people on the planet..) Scene VI – “There‟s a Wind That Blows In From the North” (Record Store) Edit Location notes: the Teuchtler Alt & Neu record store is located at 10 Windmühlgasse in the 6th district.. unique soul. which is kind of why it makes sense..max. where do they all come from? Are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls?.
If I never lay down by your side? Baby. Céline: Quickly. Web: http://www.(They go into the listening booth.at under “Elektr. Come here. let's forget about this pride.

Céline turns away. you know who just doesn't really know how to be an adult.) Jesse: This is a horrible story... not much. but. You know. What they do is the couple comes in and they kneel down in front of the whole congregation. looking for some kind of answers. and they just stare at each other. Kind of like I'm in a dress rehearsal for a Junior High play. I mean. after an hour or so of just uh. Céline: That's funny. so does Jesse.. Céline slowly walks down the aisle.(They cross the street to enter. Céline: What? . no. guilt. and nobody says a word unless they feel that God moves them to speak. right? Jesse: Hmm. Inside. Céline: What? Jesse: It„s not the appropriate place to tell it. I went to this Quaker wedding once. up there in the Ferris wheel.I always have this strange feeling that I am this very old woman laying down about to die. staring at each other. taking notes for when I'll really have to do it. or say something. Then. Even though I reject most of the religious things. Jesse: Well. it was like this very old woman kissing this very young boy. I like that. I can't help but feeling for all those people that come here lost or in pain. (The two stare at each other for a few moments. as a car stops and honks at them. Céline: That's beautiful. Jesse: That's so wild.) I was in an old church like this with my grandmother a few days ago in Budapest.. It fascinates me how a single place can join so much pain and happiness for so many generations Jesse: You close with your grandmother? Céline: Yeah.) Céline: (Almost whispering. and a few moments later. I think it„s because I always. or something. I always think that I'm still this thirteen year old boy. they're married.
'Yes. I see. Jesse: Me too. somewhere near Schwedenplatz. I'm just that dumb American momentarily decorating your bland canvas. and he looks at the money.) „cause you didn't come with me. Céline: That's mean. and leans out the window. he looks at my friend. yeah? Oh. I think I'd probably have gotten off the train in Salzburg with someone else. 'Do you believe in God?' And the guy looks at uh.). (Jesse and Céline. So. next to this homeless guy. Actually. if uh. (He kisses her hand a few times. and he says.) Céline: Ow! Jesse: Would you be in Paris by now. crying in my coffee (Mimics sad voice. it„s uh. 'Wrong answer.' (Motions as if putting money back in pocket. Jesse: Yeah? Céline: Yeah. reading old magazines. (They stop and look at one another. And my buddy takes out a hundred dollar bill. I do. no? Jesse: Yeah uh. and we drove away. .) No.' My friend says. you hadn't gotten off the train with me?

I. if I had to think about it. Jesse: I'll tell you some. seduce him. I uh.Céline: I'm so glad because no one knows I'm here. you know. what would it be? Céline: If it had to be something.. Jesse: It's alright. I always feel like the general of an army when I start dating a guy. just don't think you handle criticism too well. and I don't know anyone that knows you that would tell me all those bad things you've done. alright? That's a true story.) If we were around each other all the time. what do you think would be the first thing about me that would drive you mad? Jesse: No uh. I dated this girl once who. and broke up with me.I kind of didn't really like this reaction back at the palm reader.” She flew into a rage. I'm sure. who used to always ask me that question. plotting my strategy and maneuverings. what would hurt him. “Well. I'm not gonna answer this question. And so finally I said. no. . “What about me bugs you?” you know. you know. Céline: You know. What is it? What about me bugs you? Céline: Nothing. you hear so much shit about people. Is that what you want? Céline: What? Jesse: Something about me bugs you? Céline: No.. (They walk a bit. you know. nothing at all. You were like this rooster prick. All she ever really wanted to do was to have an excuse to tell me what she thought was wrong with me.

I understand a little bit. I'm sorry. okay? Céline: You were like a little boy walking by an ice cream store. I will write in English. Hello! A question. I'd like to ask something. of course. instead of just asking you for money. Hallo! Eine Frage. and then. but he doesn't.) Jesse: Ummm.) Jesse: I don't care what this woman has to say about anything. Jesse: Alright. if you like my poem. Eine Frage. You give me a word. Céline: Okay.. may I ask you a question? Céline: Yeah. Yeah. I mean. listen.

And if you like it. Céline: Oh. Poet: Aeaehh. Jesse: What the hell a “rooster prick”? Céline: You were like a little boy whining because all the attention wasn't focused on him. this woman robs you blind. I would like to make a deal with you. with the word inside.Jesse: “Rooster prick”? Céline: Yeah.
) Jesse: (Quietly.) What can I say? I like this Viennese variation of a bum. I think so. then. Yeah. Céline: Maybe that's why I'm still in school.... good. while Jesse and Celine turn away to talk amongst themselves. or shooting some pool. “I have got to win.Céline: A word uh. Jesse: Yeah. you know.. (Turns to poet.) “Milkshake. Céline: Good. as if surprised by the challenge. Jesse: Yeah. Céline: Well.” but great. that's what's to be expected.. So uh.) Okay.. well. I feel it come over me. you know...milkshake. (Poet finishes. Céline: I like what he said about adding something to your life. I was gonna say “rooster prick. and I'd just be glad when something nice happens. Why does everyone think conflict is so bad? There's a lot of good things coming out of conflict. I don't know.” Poet: “Milkshake”? (Pauses. Yeah. right. It„s easier to have something to fight against. no? Jesse: Yeah.) . I think we were. you know. I guess so.

Jesse: . you know. were we having our first fight back there? Céline: No. we've all had such competitiveness engrained in us. Jesse: Yeah. I might not get so pissed off about it. Jesse: “Milkshake”? Oh. and all of a sudden. even if we were a little bit. I could be doing the most nothing thing.you know. throwing some darts..
