What I do is whatever it takes, it takes. Sometimes you see a scene right away and a take looks great so you might print that and you might print a couple more and take elements of all three. It just depends. You're looking for the highlights. You're looking for the best elements of the scene, but preferably you'd like to have one good take that would go all the way through.
I'm sure that inside your heart. . . you're trying with all your might to find it on your own. . . the reason you were born. Because. . . because really. . . there might not be anyone who was born with a reason. I think that everyone. . . everyone might have to find one on their own. [in her head] A reason for being born. . . A reason that it's okay to be alive. . . A reason to exist. [aloud] I think everyone might have to find it themselves. . . and decide it for themselves. It could be your dreams. . . your job. . . or a person. . . The reason you're looking for. . . might be vague, unclear. . . and uncertain. [in her head] And you might lose it. [aloud] But as long as you're alive. . . you have to keep searching for that reason.
Being American is to eat a lot of beef steak, and boy, we've got a lot more beef steak than any other country, and that's why you ought to be glad you're an American.

I look at pictures of you because I am afraid that you would notice me staring in real life. I looked at your picture today for countless minutes. It is closer than I’ll ever get to you for real. I felt like I was looking at a captured animal at a safe distance. If you knew I was doing this, you would feel sickened and frightened. That’s why you’ll never know. Years will go by and you’ll never know. I will never say the things that I want to say to you. I know the damage it would do. I love you more than I hate my loneliness and pain.
