Food for thought

From High Fidelity:

Rob (John Cusack): I'm just sick of thinking about it all the time.

Laura (Iben Hjejle): About what?

Rob: This stuff -- Love and settling down and marriage and, you know... I just want to think about something else. That other girl or other women, whatever... I mean... I was thinking that they're just fantasies, you know. And they always seem really great because there's never any problems. And if there are, they're cute problems like, you know, we bought each other the same Christmas present. Or she wants to go see a movie I've already seen, you know. And then I come home and you and I have real problems and you don't even want to see the movie I want to see, period. And... there's no lingerie, and --

Laura: I have lingerie.

Rob: Yes you do. You have great lingerie. But you also have the cotton underwear that's been washed a thousand times and it's hanging on the thing and... and they have it, too. It's just that I don't have to see it because it's not in the fantasy. Do you understand? I'm tired of the fantasy. Because it doesn't really exist. And there are never really any suprises. And it never really--

Laura: Delievers?

Rob: Delievers. Right. And i'm tired of it. And i'm tired of everything else for that matter. But I don't ever seem to get tired of you.
