to go back to that room,
that room where I was
in that house
where we used to live…
Are we gonna go home to where
we used to live? You-we lived
in a place in Chicago.
Very definitely Chicago!
I don’t know what town we came from originally.
I don’t know, why should I know?
That kind of music you’re playing
we used to have in Chicago.
Gershwin? Do you know
anything about that? Oh, wow.
That’s nice. I like
the same things you like about it.
I wonder how we got it?
Oh, God how’d you like that? That’s
the washing machine. No, I don’t mind it.
I don’t mind at all. I don’t know why I should!
Really? You think…?
But I don’t know your name.
Sex with someone…
I don’t even know their name?
Who am I? Do you know who I am?
I’m your wife? When did that happen?
Thirty years ago? That’s pretty wonderful.
I love what you have on, your clothes.
I like myself so much I think
any guy who I’d be with
would be lucky.
You’re the him I wanted,
You’re the him I got.
Are you the him I wanted?
