Patricia: Do you know William Faulkner?
Michel: Someone you slept with?
Patricia: No, my pet.
Michel: Then I don’t care about him. Take this off.
Patricia: He’s a novelist I like a lot. Have you read “The Wild Palms”?
Michel: I told you, no. Take this sweater off.
Patricia: The last sentence is very beautiful…. “Between grief and nothing, I’ll take grief.” What would you choose?
Michel: Grief is stupid. I’d choose nothing. It’s no better but grief is a compromise. You have to go for all or nothing.
