Nick: Like how she flips her hair, how she stands with one foot to the side, it could be anything…
Roger: what’s wrong with that?
Nick: Because that’s nothing! That’s..That’s nothing! That’s just like…that’s just something she does! And she probably only does it because she saw it in a movie or something — it’s not — you know, it’s not real. It’s not their real stuff.
Roger: All that stuff Nick — the hair flips, the mannaerisms, the catchphrases, they all add up to the personality, so they ARE what’s real.
Nick: Yeah, but it’s all the outside stuff — and that’s fine in the beginning, I mean you need the outside stuff — you need the reasons to be in love — but I think you can get past that — I think you can get to the part where all the little tricks don’t mean anything — It takes years and years to get it — I can’t describe it exactly, but there’s nothing she can do — all her usual ways of hooking you in have no effect, and yet you’re still in love.
It’s like the act is over — and you get to the part that she’s been hiding — and she’s been hiding it because she thinks that that’s the part that that’s gonna blow it, or to make you leave, or get bored or whatever, but you get to that part and you’re still there — and you’re even more in love.
