1VIV: What are you thinking about sitting here all by yourself?
   2ED: The fact that this will be our last night together, and you’ll finally be rid of me.
1VIV: Well, you’ve been pretty tough to take.
   2ED: My business is almost over, so I’ll be going back to New York. I’d really like to see you again.
1VIV: You would?
   2 ED: Yes. Yes, I would, so I’ve arranged for you to have an apartment, to have a car, a wide variety of stores guaranteed to suck up to you anytime you want to go shopping. Everything’s done.
1VIV: What else? You gonna leave some money by the bed when you pass through town?
   2 ED: Vivian, it really wouldn’t be like that.
1VIV: How would it be?

   2 ED: Well, for one thing, it would get you off the streets.
1VIV: That’s just geography.
   2ED: Vivian, what is it you want? What do you see happening between us?
1VIV: I don’t know. When I was a little girl, my mama used to lock me in the attic when I was bad, which was pretty often. And I would I would pretend I was a princess trapped in a tower by a wicked queen. And then suddenly this knight on a white horse with these colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword. And I would wave. And he would climb up the tower and rescue me. But never in all the time that I had this dream did the knight say to me, “Come on, baby, I’ll put you up in a great condo.”
   2ED: I have to go now, but I want you to understand. I heard everything you said. This is all I’m capable of right now. It’s a very big step for me.
1VIV: I know. It’s a really good offer for a girl like me.
   2ED: I’ve never treated you like a prostitute.
1VIV: You just did.
