Frank Zito: [voice-over] This has got to stop. It's silly, and it's not getting us anywhere. You think they don't know. They do. I heard it and I know. They all know, and I don't like it anymore. But you don't listen do you. It's got to stop. Oh, you're right about them, all of them. They're all the same. I know what they're like. Just because I can't do the things you do doesn't mean I don't see it all the same. "Fancy shmansy", and what are we supposed to do? Sit and smile and say "yes miss, no miss, not now miss, whatever you say miss?" I know how it is with their hairs and their looks and they... they drive a man crazy! I didn't mean that. I didn't mean it that way. It's just that, they don't know when to stop. They never know when to stop. That's why they have to be stopped. It is you're right. You're right. But not like that, not that way. Please, they'll take you away from me. You have to be careful, not to listen to me. But I can't live like this. I have to go out and each time, it's like this. I get so scared that they'll take you away. But they won't if you do what I say. They won't take you away, not ever I say. Not ever.

Frank Zito: How come all your models are women?

Anna D'Antoni: Well, it's just something I'm interested in, as a woman. In fact, this is my fourth series. It's called "Women Form". Not very original is it?

Frank Zito: Well, it's not the title that matters that much.

Anna D'Antoni: No, I guess not.

Frank Zito: Do you get to keep them all?

Anna D'Antoni: I'm hoping to sell them.

Frank Zito: I wouldn't. I'd keep them forever.

Anna D'Antoni: But why? Part of my profession is to sell photographs. It's not all for art's sake you know.

Frank Zito: I know, but why do you take pictures of women this way?

Anna D'Antoni: I like to make them look beautiful.

Frank Zito: No, I think it's to preserve them. You see, the beauty is already in the model.

Anna D'Antoni: Frank, don't be silly. Listen, I'm the photographer, right?

Frank Zito: Right.

Anna D'Antoni: So, I should know what I'm doing.

Frank Zito: I know, but to me things change. People die. But in a picture or painting, they're yours forever.

Anna D'Antoni: There's no way you can possess someone forever. Even in a photograph, there's no way.

[looks down at his latest victim]

Frank Zito: Now you tell me what I should do. I heard about it, I always do. I can't go out for a minute. It's impossible. Fancy girls, in their fancy dresses and lipstick, laughing and dancing. Should you stop them? I can't stop them. But you do, don't you? And they can't laugh and they can't dance anymore. You've got to stop, or they'll take you away from me. I will never, ever, let them take you away from me. You're mine now forever. And, I'm so happy.
