Dil: You gonna tell me what it is?

Jude: What is it?

Dil: Do you know her, Jimmy?

Jude: Jimmy, is it? Do you know me, Jimmy?

Fergus: Dil, this is Jude.

Dil: Are you following me?

Jude: Yeah! Just checking. Is he being nice to you, Dil?

Dil: Ever so nice, aren't you, Jimmy?

Jude: That's good. I'm glad. Young love, as they say?

Dil: Absolutely. The younger the better. Doesn't come YOUR way much, I suppose.

Jude: Don't go looking for it, Dil.

Dil: Well, maybe you'll get lucky... someday.

Jude: Bit heavy on the powder, isn't she?

Dil: A girl has to have a bit of glamour.

Jude: Oh, absolutely. As long as she can keep it. Isn't that right, James?

Fergus: Fergus.

Dil: Fergus... Fergus. My love. Light of my life.

Fergus: Please, Dil.

Dil: Can't help it. You're doing time for me. No greater love as the man says. I wish you'd tell me why.

Fergus: As a man said, it's in my nature.

Dil: What's that supposed to mean?

Fergus: Well... there's this scorpion, you see, and he wants to go across a river. Well, he can't swim so he goes to this frog, who naturally enough can swim. And he says,

[imitating the scorpion's voice]

Fergus: "Excuse me, Mr. Froggy. I want to go across the river."

[continues narrating]

Fergus: So the frog accepts the idea. The scorpion hops on the frog's back. Suddenly, the frog: "Aah!" He feels this sting! "You stung me! Why did you go and do that?" The scorpion looks at him and says, "I can't help it, it's in my nature".

Jody: Tell me a story. Tell me anything.

Fergus: When I was a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things.

[Fergus doesn't respond]

Jody: Not a lot of use, are you Fergus?
