Thomas Webb: , I like that.
Judith Webb: You should, your father wrote it.
W.F. Gerald: Stop drowning yourself in what you think is moral. You want to fuck Johanna.
Thomas Webb: [long pause] Yes, I think I would.
W.F. Gerald: And you said your life is boring.
Thomas Webb: I don't know man. You've experienced the world. I just live here in New York.
W.F. Gerald: New York is the world.
Thomas Webb: I haven't done much with my life.
W.F. Gerald: You've had sex with you father's mistress. I'd say that's something.
Thomas Webb: [later] Am I The Only Living Boy in New York?
W.F. Gerald: You are.
Thomas Webb: And eventually I came up with a collection of essays which I called Mary Jane vs. Everything, which I was incredibly proud of. And, you know, I showed them to my Dad.
Johanna: What did Ethan say?
Thomas Webb: "Serviceable".
Ethan Webb: I want you to move from the lower east side. Why do you insist on living in the farthest corner away from us. I think it's intentional. I think it's almost hurtful.
Thomas Webb: [referring to his relationship] We should be together.
W.F. Gerald: "Should" is a dangerous word. I don't buy it. You want something more here.
Thomas Webb: Something more what?
W.F. Gerald: Provocative.
