[first lines]

Ben Grogan: [in single's bar, as he spots lonely lady peering into her glass] Plymouth and tonic.

bartender: [female voice] Yes, sir.

Kate Reed: Check please.

Ben Grogan: You always come in the door leaving?

Kate Reed: Uhm, it's not my scene.

Ben Grogan: But here you are. So you were either born on that bar stool, or came in here disguised as a woman who wants attention.

Kate Reed: And you're wearing a $3000 suit with a pocket square.

Ben Grogan: I believe my motives are clear.

Kate Reed: Sorry.

[appeasing gesture]

Kate Reed: It has been a while since anybody's offered to buy me a drink.

Ben Grogan: Really? Did the world go blind?

Kate Reed: I'm married. Was married. Now, I'm not. Anyway, the ex is on his way to sign the... whatever. But it looks like he has blown me off.

Ben Grogan: Well, it's just as well. He would have changed his mind.

Kate Reed: [laughs] Nice try.

[somber:]

Kate Reed: Maybe it'll feel... normal someday.

Ben Grogan: Do you believe in fate?

Kate Reed: Wow, was that a line?

Ben Grogan: It's a question.

[she laughs]

Ben Grogan: Takes the edge off of picking up strangers in bars.

Kate Reed: I'm 29.

[sighs]

Kate Reed: I'm, uh, nearly divorced, recently orphaned, more recently out of a job. My life is kind of at this... turning point, so yeah... I do believe in fate. And I believe she's a fickle, fickle bitch.

Ben Grogan: You seem broken.

Kate Reed: Oh.

[she scoffs]

Ben Grogan: I like that.

Kate Reed: And you're a fixer.

Ben Grogan: No.

Kate Reed: Yeah.

Ben Grogan: No, I tend to make things much worse, and then I disappear.

Kate Reed: Well,

[laughs]

Kate Reed: at least you're decent enough to be honest about it. You don't see that much.

Kate Reed: [as Michael's sedation kicks in] I think I still love you a little bit.

[to the only witness, a smiling teddy bear:]

Kate Reed: Oh, don't you judge me.

Ben Grogan: [as he drives] It figures you live in a boat.

Kate Reed: It figures you think this is a time for us to chat.

Ben Grogan: First rule of humanity, people are usually what they appear to be. I'm very good at this, Karen.

Kate Reed: [sighs] Kate.

Ben Grogan: You live on a boat because you are afraid of commitment.

[she laughs]

Ben Grogan: And you wear $500 shoes, but you won't spend ten bucks to fix a leaky seal on a propane stove. Which says old money, like the bent-over biddies on Nob Hill that yell at their Jamaican nurses for stealing soap and light bulbs...

Kate Reed: Okay. All right, all right. First of all, easy. I don't have time to fix a stove. And second of all, you smell new.

Ben Grogan: Mm.

Kate Reed: Your car smells new, your clothes smell new. Everything about you smells like somebody just dumped enchanted aftershave lotion on the What-to-Wear section of Details magazine, and then all of a sudden,

[gesturing comically:]

Kate Reed: poof, you appeared.

Ben Grogan: I like nice things.

Kate Reed: All right, that's it. Look at me.

[he has to keep his eyes on the road]

Kate Reed: Look at me.

Ben Grogan: I'm driving.

Ben Grogan: Look at me.

[pulls his face towards her, car tires screech]

Ben Grogan: I will talk to Mahoney

[car horn honks at them]

Ben Grogan: and I

[grabbing his face]

Ben Grogan: will get the settlement back on the table. Then you can go to Sam and convince him to just forget about the truth. Because you

[grabbing his face again]

Ben Grogan: are probably really, really good at that. And then, you can go back to being a living example of everything I can't stand. And, yes... I live on a boat, because it's my father's... and he's dead.

[moves way back to her side of the car]

Ben Grogan: So...

[she glares at him]

Ben Grogan: you're afraid of commitment and you're stuck in the past.

Kate Reed: Unbelievable.

[shaking her head in disgust]

Ben Grogan: [as they wait in the hallway, Kate drinking from paper cup] How much coffee do you drink?

Kate Reed: I don't know. How much coffee is there?

Kate Reed: [sarcastically] If only we Reeds did everything you wanted us to do all the time, then everything would work out perfectly.

Lauren Reed: I'd settle for once in a while with you.

Kate Reed: [sighs] Look, I'm not saying that we... don't sign the divorce papers. But what if we just give it a little bit more time?
