From “Up in the Air” – A scene between Ryan (George Clooney) and Alex (Vera Farmiga) that I have no words to describe. And it’s a brilliant, must-watch movie.
(Ryan's phone rings)
Alex: what were you thinking showing up at my door like that?
Ryan: What do you mean? I wanted to see you, I didn't know you had a family? Why wouldn't you tell me that?
Alex: Look, I'm sorry I ruined your evening but I'm.. You could've seriously screwed things up for me. That's .. that's my family. That's my real life.
Ryan: I thought I was a part of your real life
Alex: I thought we signed up for the same thing.
Ryan: Try and help me understand. Exactly, what is it that you signed up for?
Alex: I thought our relationship was perfectly clear. I mean.. You are ... an escape. You're a break from my normal life. You are ... a parenthesis.
Ryan: I'm a parenthesis?
Alex: I mean ...what do you want? (pause)
Alex: Tell me what you want.
Alex: You don't even know what you want
Alex: I'm a grown up, ok? So, if you would like to see me again, then give me a call. (pause)
