Katie: That's not why I'm saying Chow Fun's. I'm saying Chow Fun's
because we're an "us". There's a history and histories don't happen overnight.
In Mesopotamia or Ancient Troy or somewhere back there, there were cities
built on top of other cities, but I don't want to build another city.
I like this city. I know where we keep the Bactine, and what kind of mood
you're in when you wake up by which eyebrow is higher. And you always
know that I'm a little quiet in the morning and compensate accordingly.
That's a dance you perfect over time. And it's hard, it's much harder
than I thought it would be, but there's more good than bad. And you don't
just give up. And it's not for the sake of the children, but they're great
kids aren't they? And we made them - I mean think about that - there were
no people there and then there were people - two of them. And they grew.
And I won't be able to say to some stranger, "Josh has your hands" or
"Remember how Erin threw up at the Lincoln Memorial?" So what if that
stranger listens to me? I mean, Lucas Adler listens but then he always
says "between you and I" and it should be "between you and me" because
"between" is a preposition. And it's not that there's not a charming part
about you not remembering the washer fluid - which I don't understand
why you can't - but that's not ultimately important. I'll try to remember
that those things can be mildly endearing at times and really not worth
not having sex over. And I'll try to relax. I mean is it the end of the
world to have sex when you don't totally feel like it? There are all kinds
of sex, aren't there? Comfort sex, tender sex, relief sex, "I'm not in
the mood, but you are" sex...And let's face it, anybody is going to have
traits that get on your nerves, why shouldn't it be your annoying traits?
I'm no day at the beach, but I do have a good sense of direction so at
least I can find the beach, but that's not a criticism of you, it's just
a strength of mine. And you're a good friend and good friends are hard
to find. Charlotte in "Charlotte's Web" said that and I love the way you
read that to Erin - when you take on the voice of Wilbur the pig with
such commitment even when you're bone tired. It speaks volumes about character.
And ultimately isn't that what it comes down to? What a person's made
of at the end of the day? Because that pith helmet girl is still in here
- "BEE-BOO, BEE-BOO!" And I didn't even know she existed until I met you.
And if you leave, I may never see her again - even though I said at times
you beat her out of me - Isn't that the paradox? Haven't we hit the essential
paradox? Give and take, push and pull, yin and yang, the best of times,
the worst of times. I think Dickens said it best. It's the Jack Sprat
of it, he could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean, but that doesn't
really apply here. Does it? I mean I guess what I'm trying to say is -
I'm saying Chow Fun's because I love you.
