Scenes from a Goodbye
HIM: I think I’m drowning in you.
HER: Hey, that’s my line!
HIM: What do you mean?
HER: I mean, that’s my line. I told you that I was drowning in you yesterday.
HIM: You were drowning in me yesterday?
HER: I told you that I was drowning in in you yesterday. That’s when I told you. And, yes.
HER: So, now you’re saying it. You can’t do that.
HER: Because I said it first!
HIM: Can’t we both be drowning in each other?
HER: No. I’m drowning. You can be… I don’t know, suffocating or something.
HIM I don’t want to suffocate, I want to drown.
HER: You do?
HIM: No. I mean, I want to use the drowning metaphor. It’s more accurate.
HER: Well, you can’t. It just doesn’t work that way. GET YOUR OWN DAMN METAPHOR!
