Marlene quotes:

Marlene: ..So, it must’ve been ninety-five degrees that night, and everyone’s just standing around the pool with little drinks in their hands. I was wearing my old jeans and T-shirt. And I don’t know, I was just in one of those moods – so I said to myself, “Marlene, just do it,” and I jumped in. And as I’m getting out, I feel all these eyes on me, and I look up and everyone is just staring at me.
Jerry: So what’d you do?
Marlene: Well, nothing. It’s not skin off my hide if people like to look. I just didn’t see what the big attraction was.
Jerry: Well, I have a general idea what it was. I could take a guess.
Marlene: Hey, you know, Jerry, just because George and I don’t see each other anymore, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stay friends.
Jerry: No.
Marlene: Good enough. I’m really glad we got that settled.


Marlene: Are you feeling weird?
Jerry: No, I’m fine.
Marlene: Nothing really happened.
Jerry: Yeah, I know.
Marlene: We just kissed a little. People kiss.
Jerry: Yeah.
Marlene: Well.. night.


Marlene: (Leaving a message) Jerry, have you ever taken a bath in the dark? If I’m not talking into the soap right now, call me back.


Marlene: ..I’m sorry, Jerry. I just don’t think this is going to work.
Jerry: Really? I thought..
Marlene: I know, I’m sorry.
Jerry: I guess I just didn’t expect it from the way you’ve been acting.
Marlene: You sure you want to talk about this? ‘Cause I sure don’t.
Jerry: Of course I want to talk about it.
Marlene: Well, okay. I guess things changed for me on Tuesday night.
Jerry: Tuesday night? What happened Tuesday night?
Marlene: ..I saw your act.
Jerry: My act? What does that have to do with anything?
Marlene: Well, to be honest, it just didn’t make it for me. It’s just so much fluff.
Jerry: I can’t believe this. So what are you saying? You didn’t like my act, so that’s it?
Marlene: I can’t be with someone if I don’t respect what they do.
Jerry: You’re a cashier!
