[Ben has been on another binge] I want you to see a doctor.
Sera... I'm not gonna see a doctor. Perhaps now would be a good time for me to move back to a motel.
And do what? Rot away in a room? We're not gonna talk about that. Fuck you, we're not gonna talk about that! [starts to cry]
You're staying here! You could do this for me. I've given you gallons of free will around here. [throws her chopsticks on the table]
You could do this one thing for me! [pause]
I have to go to work now.
So why are you a drunk?
Why am I a drunk? Is that really what you wanna ask me?
Well, then, this is our first date, or our last. Until now I wasn't sure it was either.
Are you desirable? Are you irresistible? Maybe if you drank bourbon with me, it would help. Maybe if you kissed me and I could taste the sting in your mouth it would help. If you drank bourbon with me naked. If you smelled of bourbon as you fucked me, it would help. It would increase my esteem for you. If you poured bourbon onto your naked body and said to me "drink this". If you spread your legs and you had bourbon dripping from your breasts and your pussy and said "drink here" then I could fall in love with you. Because then I would have a purpose. To clean you up and that, that would prove that I'm worth something. I'd lick you clean so that you could go away and fuck someone else.
