Holly – And I would say to everyone that it was going to happen, and when it didn’t I just hoped they would forget I said anything. And it would build in me and I would think about it all of the time, and weeks would pass, and I’d look back, and think, my god, it was three weeks ago. What happened?
Jean – What happened?
Holly – Nothing. I don’t know. Time went by.
Jean – You’ve heard that promises are made to be broken?
Holly – I’ve heard it, but that doesn’t mean –
Jean – But you’ve heard it?
Holly – Yes.
Jean – I promise things to myself all of the time, and I break them every day. It’s easy. Shouldn’t be. But none of this is new or interesting. What I am saying to you, Holly, is – so what?
Holly – What? What do you mean, so what?
Jean – So what, you say things and they don’t happen. Laziness is easy to forgive. A lack of ambition is easy to forgive. So what and so what.
Holly – I didn’t realise –
Jean – No.
Holly – Jean –
Holly – No. Holly, no.
