Graham: You're right, I've got a lot of problems... But they belong to me.

Ann: You think they're yours, but they're not. Everybody that walks in that door becomes part of your problem. Anybody that comes in contact with you. I didn't want to be part of your problem, but I am. I'm leaving my husband, and maybe I would have anyway, but the fact is, is, I'm doing it now, and part of it's because of you. You've had an effect on my life.

Graham: This isn't supposed to happen. I've spent nine years structuring my life so this didn't happen.

Ann: Right. And, uh, *we* haven't had sex...

[giggle]

Ann: right?

Graham: So...

Ann: So, I, I, I guess from your own advice, I shouldn't take your advice.

Graham: I wouldn't.

John Mullany: I'm sorry?

Graham: No, it's just, I, you know, I just think - right now I have one key and everything I own is in the car, and I just... I like that, you know? I mean, I just, if I get an apartment, that two keys, if I... get a job, you know, I might have to open or close, that's more keys, you know, buy some stuff, I'm afraid it's gonna get ripped off, or something, and I get more keys, and I just, I, you know, I just like having the one key, it's clean.

Ann: You're not gonna worry in losing them, I always lose my keys, I hate that.

Ann: Nothing's what I thought it was. John's a bastard. Let's make a videotape.

Graham: No, I... ahem... I don't think that's a good idea.

Ann: Why not?

Graham: Because I don't think it's a choice that you'd make in a normal frame of mind.

Ann: And what would you know about a normal frame of mind?

Cynthia: The organ itself seemed like a, a separate thing, um, a separate entity to me. I mean, when he finally pulled it out, and I could look at it and touch it, I completely forgot that there was a guy attached to it. I remember literally being startled when the guy spoke to me.

Graham: So, I don't... I don't understand, uh, what made you want to come here. I can't imagine Ann painted a very flattering portrait of me.

Ann: I think that um... I think that sex is overrated. I think that people place far too much importance on it, and I think that stuff about women wantin' it just as bad as men is crap. I mean I think that women want it, I just don't think that they want it for the same reason that men think they do.

Graham: No, not exactly.

Cynthia: Well, either you are or your aren't; which is it?

Graham: Why don't you let me tape you?

Cynthia: Doing what?

Graham: Talking.

Cynthia: About what?

Graham: About sex... your sexual history, sexual preferences.

Cynthia: What makes you think I'd discuss that with you?

Graham: Nothing.

Cynthia: Hmm. And you just want to ask me questions?

Graham: I just want to ask you questions.

Cynthia: That's all.

Graham: That's all.

Cynthia: Is this how you get off or something? Taping women talking about their sexual experiences?

Graham: Yes.

Ann: I want to know why you are the way you are!

Graham: And I'm telling you it's not any one thing that I can point to and say "That's why!" It doesn't work that way with people who have problems, Ann, it's not that neat, it's not hat tidy! It's not a series of little boxes that you can line up and count. Things just don't happen that way.

Cynthia: I was eight years old, and, um, Michael Green, who was also eight, asked if he could watch me take a pee... And I said he could if I could watch him take one, too. So we went to the woods behind my house. And I got this feeling he was chickenin' out cos he kept sayin' "Ladies first!" So I pulled down my little panties and urinated, and he ran away before I even finished.

Graham: Was it a topic of conversation between you after that?

Cynthia: No! He kind of avoided me for the rest of the summer, and then his family moved away... To Cleveland, actually.

Graham: What a shame. When did you finally see a penis?
