Okay, I'm gonna say something out loud that I've been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately.
What you and Tony have-- what I thought for a second you and I had...
what I know that Marshall and Lily have...
I want that.
Robin: Oh, lily you know me. I am just not into all that coupley stuff.
Lily: Okay, I know that stuff looks dumb from outside. It would be the happiest thing in the world when you're part of it. If you just gave it a chance, you might like it.
Robin: Are you trying to get me to join a cult?
Lily: If you don't start meeting him halfway, you're gonna lose him.
Lily: Okay yes, it's a mistake. I know it's a mistake. But there are certain things in life where you know it's a mistake, but you don't really know it's a mistake, because the only way to really know it's a mistake is to make the mistake and look back and say, "Yep, that was a mistake." So really the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake because then you'd go your whole life not really knowing if something is a mistake or not. And, damn it, I've made no mistakes! I've done all of this, my life, my relationship, my career, mistake-free.
Ted: I'm just tired of waiting. And that is all I'm going to say on that subject.
Stella: You know, I once talked my way out of a speeding ticket? I was heading upstate to my parents' house doing, like, 90 on this country road,and I got pulled over. So this cop gets out of his car. He kind of swaggers on over and he's, like, "Young lady, I have been waiting for you all day." So I looked up at him and I said, "I'm so sorry, Officer. I got here as fast as I could."
Ted: For real?
Stella: No. It's an old joke.I know that you're tired of waiting, and you may have to wait a little while more, but she's on her way, Ted. And she's getting here as fast as she can. Just be a little bit more patient.
October 21, Friday | Luxbourne Movie House | Afternoon
The LIFT Fest—short for Luxbourne Independent Film and Theater Festival—
attracts a bigger crowd annually, and this year's no different.
I've only been to a few indie film screenings with Zach, so I'm not an expert on the matter.
But I know that for people hoping to make a break in the industry, getting your film recognized by a local event like this is already a big deal.
Especially for a newcomer like Zach! He hasn't even won an award, but—
Just getting a confirmation letter, that the festival committee wants to include his movie in this year's line-up, already put a grin on his face for weeks.
Speaking of the guy...
He's impossible to miss.
At six feet, he appears to loom over most of the movie-goers. And with his large build and heavy voice, there's no surprise when people give him a wide berth as they pass by.
It's often easy to mistake him for someone intimidating at first glance.
I did, back when I didn't know any better.
Ash did, too, I heard! Once, early in their friendship.
Oh, there's Zach!
*‘Sup Z-man! My main man! What's crackalackin', my homey?
The awkwardness that descends within the immediate vicinity of our small
group is palpable enough.
Somewhere to our left, a girl giggles and only then do I become aware of my mouth hanging open.
I'm almost amazed how Ash can say that out loud with a straight face.
Considering his track record, I should be used to it by now! Zach seems to be.
There's fondness underneath his exasperated tone.
If this were any other person, he'll likely be offended. But years of friendship and familiarity have made those words harmless to the other's ears.
Or, at least, enough for both to take it in stride.
*It's been a while, Zach.
*Not much to get into trouble lately without you, I'm afraid. I'll let
you know if something comes up, though.
*Hey, I take offense to that. It wasn't that bad.
A beat passes, and then Zach laughs.
It's a story only the two of them are privy to: every now and then, Ash
will enlist Zach's help on… something.
Becca and I have never really found out the real deal is with those "adventures", as Ash calls it, and both aren't willing to tell due to some unspoken agreement.
She insists that if it's Ash, it's likely not something illegal or life-threatening. I tend to believe her on that.
Ah, well. Boys will be boys, I guess?
I give Zach a small wave from behind Ash when he eventually turns his attention on me.
A bit, but she's up and went to work this morning.
You know she doesn't listen to anyone that's not Ash.
*Yes, she does.
No, she doesn't. You're literally the only person she'll listen to when she's feeling stubborn.
And it's true! They've known each other far longer than any of us in the group, childhood friends and all.
But don't worry, Zach! She's probably on her way here now.
She promised she wouldn't miss your movie—
???Isabella! Oh, thank goodness!
Speak of the devil.
Without warning, a hand grabs me by the shoulder and turns me around.
Becca! You're just in ti—
I have to lean back a little with the way her face is almost invading my
personal space. But she places her hand on either side of my face to
keep my head still.
She stares at me intently, concern filling her eyes.
Becca, you're squishing my face.
I keep waiting for it to happen and waiting for it to happen, and...
I guess I'm just, um...
I'm tired of waiting.
And that is all I'm going to say on that subject.
How are you? Are you all right?
W-Why wouldn't I be?
You know, I once talked my way out of a speeding ticket?
I was heading upstate to my parents' house doing,
like, 90 on this country road,
and I got pulled over.

Rose called me earlier.
Since I don't have my family living close by and the only other relative
I have works on the far side of the country, I gave my company Becca's
contact number, in case of emergency.
I should have known Rose will call her.
澳门葡京赌场手机版，I push Becca's hands away from my face. Although she lets go, her eyebrows remain drawn together.
Oh, no! No! Everything's good! Rose covered for me at work today.
So this cop gets out of his car.
He kind of swaggers on over and he's, like,
"Young lady, I have been waiting for you all day."
So I looked up at him and I said,
"I'm so sorry, Officer. I got here as fast as I could."
That's not what I'm talking about.
I know that you're tired of waiting, and
you may have to wait a little while more,
but she's on her way, Ted.
And she's getting here as fast as she can...
How's your head?
Beside me, Ash snickers.
I bite back the urge to elbow him, in place of trying to avoid Becca's hand as she tries to reach out for the said area.
I did my best to dodge her, all at once moving to hide behind Zach.
Sorry for using you as a human shield, Zach!
Oh, it's nothing! I just slipped off a few steps on my way down. I blacked out for a few seconds and had a minor bump, but it's just that.
You blacked out?! It's not something to brush off!
Come on, at least let me check it!
It's extremely minor; you wouldn't even know it's there!
Isabella, this isn't a laughing matter!
*She did look pale when I saw her earlier.
Wow, thanks a lot, Ashton! You traitor! I'll get you back for this, just you wait!
*What? I'm just saying it as it is.
*If you mentioned this earlier we wouldn't be having this conversation
I'm sorry, 'saw her'?
Something crosses Becca's face, but it's gone before I can figure out what it is.
Oh...that's—that's good. At least she didn't have to travel alone, right? At least. Good.`
See? I'm okay! I wouldn't be here if I wasn't!
And—and—I don't want to miss Zach's film!
We can always watch it some other time.
It's the premiere! The premiere's different! Right, Zach?
I shoot him a pleading look.
Zach's a sensible guy. He'll understand! Please understand!
Oh, for heaven's sake!
Please, Becca. I really don't want to miss it.
