Fun Stuff

From Paper Man (2009)
Richard Dunn: I wanted to have a baby!
Claire Dunn: Is this what all this is all about?
Richard Dunn: We could have had a baby, Claire! Why didn't we have a baby?
Claire Dunn: Why? because you are a baby! You are an infant! You still have an imaginary friend!
Richard Dunn: I just wanted a little warm thing. Something simple I could start with. A single relationship with a person that was new and pure. Where I could be me and they could be them, and that's all that is expected, and we could build this world where there was some one else other than me to think about and be about. The relief of being able to give the world someone else and let it be theirs. Let them have their turn. So it doesn't end with me.
