Rand: My question is, does the chemical make-up between two human mammals make up our personal involvement a moot point?
Sarah McCaulley: Of course, it's all chemical to start with. It's all just signals to communicate with these bodies we live in, but true love is incredible, all consuming.
Rand: No I totally agree with you, all consuming. BUt so is the lust, I mean is it possibly rooted in physiology rather then
Rand: our hearts?
Sarah McCaulley: Have you ever been in love?
Rand: No, but I've seen it. My parents totally crazy about each other.
Sarah McCaulley: Then why are you such a cynic?
Rand: Well I've also seen it disappear all together as it were never there at all.
Rand: These are my fat pills actually, I grew up fat. Seriously, my parents they never stopped me from having a second helping of whatever so I kind of blew up from there.
Rand: The doctor diagnosed me with hyperthyroidis, prescribed this drug Syntac. Right after I started taking it, I started feeling like I had more energy, I started swimming and stuff,by Junior year in high school I was pretty much normal.
Sarah McCaulley: I've read somewhere lately that they've been doing a lot of placebo work with thyroid problems?
Rand: This is definitely not a placebo.
Sarah McCaulley: How do you know? Let me guess... you got a feeling?
Rand: That's very funny I didn't know you were a comedian!
Rand: You cold?
Sarah McCaulley: No, what are you feeling? Are you all squishy inside or is this just some phermones thing that's kicking in?
Rand: Well it's obviously your pheromones...
Sarah McCaulley: My pheromones?
Rand: Yeah, your epocrine glads produce most of them. I sense them through smell. Especially when we kiss.
Sarah McCaulley: What else are you feeling?
Rand: Biologically, my ribonasal organ and my hypothalamas are kicking in the hormones right now.
Sarah McCaulley: What hormones?
Rand: Testosterone, big time.
Sarah McCaulley: Okay, shut up now.
Rand: Now the neurotransmitters are filling with dopamine. That's the pleasure drug that our body produces. It creates a high, it's addicting.
Sarah McCaulley: [stops kissing] That all you're feeling? Is it anything else to you?
Rand: It's a little hard to tell right now...
Sarah McCaulley: I'm serious.
Rand: I'm serious too.
Sarah McCaulley: What puts us above the level of being animals?
Rand: Our intelligence.
Sarah McCaulley: It's not love? Oh it's not love to you.
Rand: Sarah, I told you what was going on inside me. Is that love? I don't know.
Sarah McCaulley: That's cool Rand. I've got some holes to fill and I'm not sure intelligence is the answer.
Sarah McCaulley: So tell me, why'd that art gallery freak you out so much? You don't have to tell me. Here
[hands him the wood stick]
Rand: What's this? A talking stick? Oh, oh I see. So I can join the generation of emasulated males given permission to talk about their feelings? Sorry, it's a joke.
Machiko: [interrupts flirty conversation] It's for you, it's Rand.
Sarah McCaulley: [picks up receiver] Rand?
Machiko: [voice on phone] What are you doing girl?
Sarah McCaulley: Who is this? Machiko?
Machiko: What do you mean what am I doing? What are YOU doing? I was just checking... I thought you came to see Rand.
Sarah McCaulley: Yeah, well I'm just bummed he didn't show.
Machiko: Yeah? You don't look so bummed.
Johnson: [both ride bikes with a marathon] Hey, Sarah was looking for you last night.
Rand: She was?
Johnson: What's up with you two?
Rand: I'm not sure. It doesn't make an sense.
Johnson: What do you mean? Why do we have to make sense of everything?
Johnson: Yeah it's nice to know when some low pressure system pushes moisture laid in the air over a heated land mass and that we need a fucking umbrella to get to work
Johnson: Hey man, rain used to be with the gods of thunder cried.
Sarah McCaulley: [speaking into monitor] I've been thinking a lot about what you said. And I need to find Sam, just to see her from a distance to see if she's okay.
Sarah McCaulley: Your Mom loves you, still does and always will. Maybe love is all chemical, maybe it's also "We'll keep the species going." But I think whoever or whatever planned it that way, must have known what love felt like.
Sarah McCaulley: That's a good enough reason.
Sarah McCaulley: Rand, I'm not using this as an excuse I honestly don't know have the shit I do. Sometimes until it's done.
Sarah McCaulley: It's like I'm on auto-pilot. I land in places I shouldn't.
Rand: You really know how to make a guy feel confident.
Rand: No one will ever live up to what you and Sam had.
Sarah McCaulley: Why?
Rand: I think you're judging people on the wrong scale.
Sarah McCaulley: Why can't it be like that?
Rand: [ponders] ... you're only born perfect?
Sarah McCaulley: ...and it's all downhill from there. Why me Rand?
Rand: What do you mean?
Rand: Why am I not some chemical reaction that will run out on you one day, what makes me special?
Sarah McCaulley: I don't know.
Sarah McCaulley: Morning, sleepyhead.
Rand: I was dreaming of you.
Sarah McCaulley: You were?
Rand: [laughs] Yes, I was singing to you in my dream.
Sarah McCaulley: Singing? What song?
Rand: That Bob Dylan Song? 'Sara'?
Sarah McCaulley: [laughs] I'd love to hear it!
Rand: Oh, no.
Sarah McCaulley: Koy-Koy needs to sing.
Rand: I don't think so.
Sarah McCaulley: Koy-Koy doesn't sing, he doesn't get any Kiki.
Rand: [laughs] I'm not gonna sing.
Sarah McCaulley: Sing!
Rand: [singing] ... Sarah, Sarah, whatever made you change your mind?
