Tuesday Dialogue #6: JOE BERLIN & STEFFI DANDRIDGE (Woody allen & Goldie Hawn)

They're in Paris. They've left the party and they've gone for a walk. They danced for a bit, and now, they're sitting down and sharing some thoughts.



STEFFI: You know over the years I often wondered what would have happened if we'd stayed together?


WOODY: That's something we're never gonna know, y'know? We've managed to produce a fabulous daughter though. I mean, she is unbelievable. She's got your-- your looks, fortunately, and my--my magic personality, so--


Yeah she is wonderful.


She's great -- and and you've been very happy with Bob, so that's--


Oh he's wonderful. He is.


I think he's great. I don't think you could have done better. I think he's a fabulous guy. Of course there have been a few times you'll admit; that uh, you did call me in dire emergency and I had to come by and bail you out, on a couple of things.


I know. 


Two major fights with Bob I remember. And one disgusting lump that turned out to be completely benign, so you panicked beyond belief---


I know, you were there for me. 


And you for me, y'know. And I-I appreciate it. I think, actually, we've been better friends than husband and wife. 


Yeah probably. But nobody made me laugh the way you did Joe. I love Bob with all my heart, it doesn't matter, it's just that you-- you could always, y'know, you could always push that button.


Why is that so important? 


I don't know. I don't know. Maybe we're crazy. 


So did that girl that dumped you today, did she make you laugh?


I don't know -- I have to put that behind, y'know.

Funny how life goes. 



It's amazing. Amazing. 

Care to share?

  1. Wouldn't it be great if divorced people really interacted like this? I've never seen it in real life, but it seems common in movies. Sigh.
