"I had a dream. In fact, it was the night I met you. In the dream, there was our world and the world was dark because there weren't any robins, and the robins represented love. And for the longest time, there was just this darkness. And all of a sudden, thousands of robins were set free, and they flew down and brought this Blinding Light of Love. And it seemed like that love would be the only thing that would make any difference. And it did. So I guess it means there is trouble 'til the robins come."

There are times since I've felt like the child born of those two fathers. But, be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and meaning to this life."

You'll thank me for it.' Oh, I-I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They'd say, 'How can ya stand it?' And I'd say, ''Cause I've been with Del Griffith. I can take ANYTHING.' You know what they'd say? They'd say, 'I know what ya mean. The shower curtain ring guy. Whoa.' It's like going on a date with a Chatty Cathy doll. I expect you have a little string on your chest, you know, that I pull out and have to snap back.

- "You realize, of course, that we could never be friends."
- "Why not?"
- "What I'm saying is, and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form, is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
- "That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved."
- "No, you don't."
- "Yes, I do."
- "No, you don't."
- "Yes, I do."
- "You only think you do."
- "You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?"
- "No, what I'm saying is they all want to have sex with you."
- "They do not."
- "Do too."
- "They do not."
- "Do too."
- "How do you know?"
- "Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her."
- "So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?"
- "No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too."
- "What if they don't want to have sex with you?"
- "Doesn't matter, because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story."
- "Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then."
- "I guess not."
- "That's too bad. You were the only person that I knew in New York."

- "I love that you get cold when it's seventy-one degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're lookin' at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely. And it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
- "You see, that is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you. And I hate you, Harry. I really hate you."
