Mrs. Robinson: What?

Mrs. Robinson: Like what?

Benjamin: What do you think?

Mrs. Robinson: Well, I don't know.

Benjamin: For God's sake, Mrs. Robinson. Here we are. You got me into your house. You give me a drink. You... put on music. Now, you start opening up your personal life to me and tell me your husband won't be home for hours.

Mrs. Robinson: So?

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me!

Mrs. Robinson: [laughs] Huh?

Benjamin: Aren't you?

Benjamin: [It's morning. Mr. Braddock is in the kitchen. Ben walks in] I'm going to marry Elaine Robinson.

Mr. Braddock: Well, well, well!

[He almost giggles as he crosses to Ben and takes his hand to shake it. Mrs. Braddock appears in the doorway]

Mrs. Braddock: What's happening

Mr. Braddock: Ben says he and Elaine are getting married.

Mrs. Braddock: I don't believe it.

Mr. Braddock: That what he says. Right?

Benjamin: I'm going up to Berkeley today.

Mrs. Braddock: Oh, Ben. This is so exciting.

Mr. Braddock: Come on, let's call the Robinsons. We've got something to celebrate.

Benjamin: No. I think you'll want to wait on that.

Mr. Braddock: They don't know?

Benjamin: No, they don't.

Mr. Braddock: Well, when did you decide all this?

Benjamin: About an hour ago.

Mr. Braddock: Wait a minute. You talked to Elaine this morning?

Benjamin: No. She doesn't know about it.

Mr. Braddock: She doesn't know that you're coming up to Berkeley?

Benjamin: No. Actually, she doesn't know about us getting married yet.

Mr. Braddock: When did you two talk this over?

Benjamin: We haven't.

Mr. Braddock: Ben, this whole idea sounds pretty half-baked.

Benjamin: No, it's not, Dad. It's completely baked. It's a decision I've made.

Mrs. Braddock: But what makes you think she wants to marry you?

Benjamin: [Ben picks up his suitcase, walks to the door] She doesn't. To be perfectly honest, she doesn't like me.

Mr. Braddock: What's the matter? The guests are all downstairs, Ben, waiting to see you.

Benjamin: Look, Dad, could you explain to them that I have to be alone for a while?

Mr. Braddock: These are all our good friends, Ben. Most of them have known you since, well, practically since you were born. What is it, Ben?

Benjamin: I'm just...

Mr. Braddock: Worried?

Benjamin: Well...

Mr. Braddock: About what?

Benjamin: I guess about my future.

Mr. Braddock: What about it?

Benjamin: I don't know... I want it to be...

Mr. Braddock: To be what?

Benjamin: [looks at his father] ... Different.

Benjamin: Here? In Berkeley?

Elaine: Yes.

Benjamin: Well, I have this very pleasant room on Carter Street, and I've been getting to some classes.

Elaine: But you're not enrolled.

Benjamin: No, I just sit in. They don't seem to mind. They've been very congenial about it.

Elaine: [annoyed] Benjamin, you're... I don't know what to say.

Benjamin: Listen to me. What happened between Mrs. Robinson and me was nothing. It didn't mean anything. We might just as well have been shaking hands.

Mr. Robinson: Ben, can I say something to you?

Benjamin: What?

Mr. Robinson: Uh, how long have we known each other now? How long have you and I known each other? How long have your dad and I been partners?

Benjamin: Quite a while.

Mr. Robinson: I watched you grow up, Ben.

Benjamin: Yes, sir.

Mr. Robinson: In many ways, I feel as though you were my own son.

Benjamin: Thank you.

Mr. Robinson: So I hope you won't mind my giving you a friendly piece of advice.

Benjamin: I'd like to hear it.

Mr. Robinson: Ben, I think... I think you ought to be taking it a little easier right now than you seem to be. Sow a few wild oats. Take things as they come. Have a good time with the girls and so forth.

Mrs. Robinson: [Mrs. Robinson joins them; Ben abruptly stands up] Don't get up.

Mr. Robinson: I was just telling... Ben. Ben, here, that he ought to sow a few wild oats. Have a good time while he can. You think that's sound advice?

Mrs. Robinson: Yes, I do.

Benjamin: I've got to go.

Mr. Robinson: You have yourself a few flings this summer. I bet you're quite a ladies' man, huh?

Benjamin: Oh, no.

Mr. Robinson: [taken aback] What?

Mr. Robinson: You look to me like the kind of guy who has to fight 'em off.

Mr. Robinson: [to his wife] Now, doesn't he look to you like the kind of guy who has to fight them off?

Mrs. Robinson: Yes, he does.

Benjamin: Mr. Robinson!

Mr. Robinson: Do you have a special grudge against me? Do you feel a particularly strong resentment? Is there something I've said that's caused this contempt, or is it just things I stand for that you despise?

I think I can get you behind bars if you ever *look* at my daughter again. Now, I've seen Elaine, and I've made damn sure you can't get to her. Stay away from me, Ben!

Mr. Robinson: [heading for the door] I don't want to mince words with you. As far as Elaine is concerned, you're to get her out of your filthy mind right now! Is that *perfectly* clear to you? And that's all, Ben. You'll pardon me if *I* don't shake hands with you.

Mr. Robinson: I think you are filth. I think you are scum. You are a degenerate!

Mrs. Robinson: Let's drop it.

Benjamin: We're not dropping it! I'm good enough for you, but I'm not good enough to associate with your daughter. That's it, isn't it! Isn't it?

Mrs. Robinson: [lengthy pause] Yes.

Benjamin: You go to hell! You go straight to hell, Mrs. Robinson! Do you think I'm proud of myself? Do you think I'm proud of this?

Mrs. Robinson: I wouldn't know.

Benjamin: Well, I am not! No sir, I am not proud that I spend my time with a broken-down alcoholic!

Mrs. Robinson: I see.

Benjamin: And if you think I come here for any reason besides pure boredom, then you're all wrong; because Mrs. Robinson, this is the sickest, most perverted thing in the world that ever happened to me! And you do what you want, but I'm getting the hell out!

Mrs. Robinson: Are you?

Benjamin: [in the swimming pool] I suppose she's not good enough for you! Is that it?

Benjamin: Look, Elaine Robinson and I do not get along.

Mr. Braddock: How do you know? You haven't seen her since high school. I suppose your evenings - whatever you do with them - are just too valuable.

Benjamin: That has nothing to do with it.

Mr. Braddock: I guess I'll just have to tell Mr. Robinson that you're too busy every evening, doing God knows what.

Mrs. Braddock: Now, don't go on like this!

Mr. Braddock: I'm not.

Mrs. Braddock: If Benjamin absolutely refuses to take her out...

Benjamin: Oh, then what?

Elaine: Then you took her upstairs, and you raped her.

Benjamin: Oh, no no, that's not what happened. What happened was that there was this party at my parents, I drove your mother home...

Elaine: I don't want to hear this!

Benjamin: Then we went upstairs to see your portrait...

Elaine: No, I don't!
