Bill Parrish: Do you love Drew? …Do you love Drew?
Susan Parrish: You mean like you loved Mom?
Bill Parrish: Forget about me and Mom. Are you gonna marry him?
Susan Parrish: Probably.
Bill Parrish: Listen, I’m crazy about that guy. He’s smart, he’s aggressive, he could carry Parrish Communications into the 21st century and me along with it.
Susan Parrish: So what’s wrong with that?
Bill Parrish: That’s for me. I’m talking about you. It’s not what you say about Drew, it’s what you don’t say.
Susan Parrish: Maybe you’re not listening.
Bill Parrish: Oh yes, I am. There’s not an ounce of excitement. Not a whisper of a thrill. This relationship has all the passion of a pair of titmice. I want you to get swept away out there. I want you to levitate. I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a Dervish.
Susan Parrish: Oh, that’s all?
Bill Parrish: Yeah. Be deliriously happy or at least leave yourself open to be.
Susan Parrish: Okay. Be deliriously happy. I shall… uhh… I shall do my utmost.
Bill Parrish: I know it’s a cornball thing, but love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who’ll love you the same way back. How do you you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there’s no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven’t lived a life at all. But you have to try, because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.
Susan Parrish: Bravo!
Bill Parrish: Aw, you’re tough.
Susan Parrish: I’m sorry. Okay. Give it to me again, but the short version this time.
Bill Parrish: Okay. Stay open. Who knows? Lightning could strike.
Bill Parrish: Yeah?
Susan Parrish: Yeah!
