Do you have any idea what they were arguing about?
D-Do you speak English?
Yeah. No, I'm sorry. My German is not very good.
我会 抱歉 我的德文不太好
Have you heard that as couples get older,
they lose their ability to hear each other?
Well, supposedly, men lose their ability to hear higher-pitched sounds.
And women eventually lose hearing on the low end.
- I guess they sort of nullify each other. - I guess.
Nature's way of allowing couples
to grow old together without killing each other.
What are you reading?
这本啊艾德沃达夫人 死者 眼睛的历史
Look, I was thinking about going to the lounge car sometime soon.
- Would you like to come with me? - Yeah.
So how do you speak such good English?
I went to school for a summer in Los Angeles.
- Yeah? - It's fine here?
Yeah, this is good.
Then I spent some time in London.
How do you speak such good English?
Me? I'm American.
- You're American? - Yeah.
- Are you sure? - Yeah.
I knew you were American.
And of course, you don't speak any other language, right?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I get it, I get it.
So I'm the crude, dumb, vulgar American
who doesn't speak any other languages, who has no culture, right?
不会讲外语 也没有文化底蕴 对吧
I took French for four years in high school.
When I first got to Paris, I stood in line at the Metro station,
I was practicing - Une billet, s'il vous plaît..
- Une billet, s'il vous plaît. - Un billet.
Un, whatever - Un - Un -
Un 好吧 是Un
Un billet, s'il vous plait. Un billet, s'il vous plait.
And I get up there and I look at this woman
and my mind goes completely blank.
And I start saying,
"Ah, listen, I need a ticket to get to, um —" You know.
So where are you headed?
Well, back to Paris. My classes start next week.
You're still in school? Where do you go?
Yeah. La Sorbonne, you know?
Are you coming from Budapest?
Yeah, I was visiting my grandmother.
- She's all right? - She's fine, yeah.
- How about you? Where are you going? - I'm going to Vienna.
-你呢 你要去哪儿 -我要去维也纳
- Vienna? What's there? - I have no idea.
-维也纳 有什么好玩的 -我也不知道
I'm flying out of there tomorrow.
Ah. You're on holiday?
- Uh, I don't really know what I'm on. - Okay.
I'm just traveling around.
I've been riding the trains the past two, three weeks.
You were visiting friends or just on your own?
You know, I had a friend in Madrid,
- but... - Madrid? That's nice.
-只不过... -马德里 那很好啊
Yeah, I got one of those Eurail passes, is what I did.
So, has this trip around Europe been good for you?
Yeah, sure. Yeah, it's been... It sucked.
- You know... - What?
No, it's - It hasn't -
It's had its... Well, I'll tell you. You know.
Sitting, you know, for weeks on end, looking out the window
has actually been kinda great.
Well, uh, you know, for inst -
You have ideas that you ordinarily wouldn't have.
- What kind of ideas? - You wanna hear one?
- Yeah, tell me. - All right.
-想 给我讲讲 -好吧
I have this idea, okay?
For a television show.
Some friends of mine are these cable access producers.
Do you know what that is, cable acc...
Anybody can produce a show real cheap,
and they have to put it on. Right?
I have this idea for this show that
would last 24 hours a day, for a year straight, right?
What you do is you get 365 people
from cities all over the world
to do these 24-hour documents of real time,
capturing life as it's lived.
You know, it would start with a guy waking up in the morning
and, uh, you know, taking a long shower,
um, eating a little breakfast, making a little coffee,
you know, and, uh, reading the paper.
Wait, wait, all those mundane, boring things
everybody has to do every day of their fucking life?
I was gonna say "The poetry of day-to-day life."
But you say it the way you say it, I'll say it the way I say it.
- But listen, think about it like this. - Who's gonna want to watch this?
Well, alright. Think about it like this...
Why is it that a dog sleeping in the sun is so beautiful?
You know? It is. It's beautiful.
But a guy standing at a bank machine,
trying to take some money out,
looks like a complete moron.
So it's like a National Geographic program, but on people.
- What do you think? - I can - I can see it -
Like 24 boring hours. Sorry.
And, like, a three-minute sex scene where he falls asleep right after, no?
兴许会有个三分钟性爱 然后直接睡着的片段 对吧
- I mean, that would be a great episode. - Yeah.
People would talk about that episode.
You and your friends could do one in Paris if you wanted to. I mean...
The key - The thing that kinda haunts me is,
is the distribution.
Getting these tapes from town to town,
city to city, so that it would play continuously.
'Cause it'd have to play all the time
or else it just wouldn't work.
You know what? They're not service-oriented.
Just an observation about Europe.
My parents have never really spoken of the possibility of
my falling in love or getting married or having children.
我会相爱 结婚 生子这种事
Even as a little girl,
they wanted me to think as a future career as a,
you know, interior designer
or lawyer or something like that.
I'd say to my Dad, "I want to be a writer,"
And he'd say, "Journalist."
I'd say I wanted to have a refuge for stray cats
and he'd say, "Veterinarian."
I'd say I wanted to be an actress and he'd say, "TV newscaster."
我说我想成为一名演员 他则说 "新闻主播"
It was this constant conversion of my fanciful ambition
into these practical, moneymaking ventures.
I always had a pretty good bullshit detector when I was a kid.
I always knew when they were lying to me, you know?
By the time I was in high school,
I was dead set on listening to
what everybody thought I should be doing with my life
and just kinda... doing the opposite.
Nobody was ever mean about it.
It's just...I could never get very excited about
other people's ambitions for my life.
But you know what?
If your parents never really fully contradict you about anything
- and are basically nice and supportive... - Right.
it makes it even harder to officially complain.
You know, even when they're wrong.
It's this passive-aggressive shit. You know what I mean? It's...
就是消极抵抗的感觉 明白吗 就是这种...
I really hate it.
Well, you know, despite all that kind of bullshit that comes along with it,
I remember childhood as this...
you know, this magical time.
I remember when, uh, my mother first told me about death.
My great-grandmother had just died,
and my whole family had just visited them in Florida.
I was about three, three and a half years old.
Anyway, I was in the backyard, playing,
and my sister had just taught me
how to take the garden hose and do it in such a way that,
uh, it sprayed into the sun and it would make a rainbow.
So I was doing that,
and through the mist, I could see my grandmother.
You know? And she was just standing there, smiling at me.
And, uh, I held it there for a long time and I looked at her,
and then finally I-I let go of the nozzle.
You know? And then I dropped the hose.
And she disappeared.
So I run back inside and I tell my parents.
And they, uh, sit me down and give me this big rap
on how, when people die,
you never see them again and how I'd imagined it.
But I knew what I'd seen.
I was just glad that I saw it.
I've never seen anything like that since.
It just kinda let me know how ambiguous everything was.
You know, even death.
You're really lucky you can have this attitude toward death.
I think I'm afraid of death 24 hours a day.
That's why I'm in a train right now.
I could have flown to Paris, but I'm too scared.
- Oh, come on. - I can't help it. I can't help it.
-得了吧 -我控制不住 一直会想
I know the statistics say "Na na na," It's safer. Whatever.
When I'm in a plane, I can see it. I can see the explosion.
I can see me falling through the clouds.
And I'm so scared of
those few seconds of consciousness before you're gonna die.
You know, when you know for sure you're gonna die?
I can't stop thinking that way.
- It's - It's exhausting. - Yeah, I bet.
- I think this is Vienna. - Yeah.
- You get off here, no? - Yeah. What a drag.
-你在这里下车 对吧 -是的 真扫兴
I wish I had met you earlier. I really like talking to you.
It was really nice talking to you.
I have an admittedly insane idea, but if I don't ask you this,
it's gonna haunt me the rest of my life.
I want to keep talking to you.
You know, I have no idea what your situation is.
But, uh... But I feel like
we have some kind of a connection, right?
- Yeah, me too. - Yeah, right. Well, great.
-我也这么觉得 -好 那就太好了
So listen, here's the deal. This is what we should do.
So you should get off the train with me here in Vienna
and come check out the town.
- What? - Come on. It'll be fun. Come on.
-你说什么 -来吧 会很有趣的 一起来吧
- What would we do? - I don't know.
All I know is I have to catch an
Austrian Airlines flight tomorrow morning at 9:30,
and I don't have enough money for a hotel,
so I was just gonna walk around,
and it'd be a lot more fun if you came with me.
And if I turn out to be some kind of psycho,
you know, you just get on the next train.
All right, think of it like this.
Uh, jump ahead ten, 20 years. Okay? And you're married.
Only your marriage doesn't
have that same energy that it used to have.
You start to blame your husband.
You start to think about all those guys you've met in your life
and what might have happened if you picked up with one of them, right?
Well, I'm one of those guys. That's me.
So think of this as time travel from then to now,
to find out what you're missing out on.
See, what this really could be
is a gigantic favor to both you and your future husband
to find out that you're not missing out on anything.
I'm just as big a loser as he is,
totally unmotivated, totally boring,
and, uh, you made the right choice and you're really happy.
- Let me get my bag. - Yeah.
- We should get a locker for all this stuff. - Okay.
- What's your name? - My name? Uh, it's Jesse.
-你叫什么名字 -我吗 我叫杰西
It's James, actually, but everybody always calls me Jesse.
- You mean Jesse James? - No, no, just Jesse.
-所以你全名是杰西·詹姆斯吗 -不 不 就是杰西
- This is a nice bridge. - Yeah.
- This is kinda weird. - Yeah, it's kinda weird, isn't it?
-有些怪怪的 -是啊 确实有点怪
I mean, it's a little awkward.
- But it's all right, right? - Yeah,
-但是还行 对吧 -是
this is great, this is great. Let's go to some places.
很好 很好 我们去逛逛吧
- Look at your book. - We're in Vienna. Let's go to some places.
-看看指南 -我们在维也纳 去逛逛吧
- Look, let's ask these guys. - Okay.
Uh, excuse me. Excuse me.
- Sprechen sie English? - Ja. Of course.
- Could you speak German for a change? - What?
No, it was a joke.
Well, listen, we just got into
Vienna today and we're looking for something fun to do.
Like museums, exhibitions.
But museums are not that funny anymore these days.
Uh, and they are closing right now.
- How long are you going to be here? - Just for tonight.
Why did you come to Vienna? What could you be expecting?
We're on honeymoon.
Yeah. She got pregnant. We had to get married.
是 她怀孕了 我们得结婚
No, I don't believe you. You're a bad liar.
不 我才不信你 你不会撒谎
This is, uh, this is a play we're both in.
- And we would like to invite you. - You're actors?
Not professional actors. Part-time actors for fun.
It's a play about a cow and the Indians searching for it.
- There are also politicians, Mexicans, Russians. - Communists.
-里面还有政客 墨西哥人 俄罗斯人 -共产党
- You have a real cow on stage? - No, not a real cow.
-舞台上有真正的奶牛吗 -不 不是真正的奶牛
- It's an actor in a cow costume. - And he is the cow.
Yes, I am the cow, and the cow is a bit weird.
是 我演奶牛 奶牛有点古怪
The cow has a disease.
She's acting a bit strange, like a dog.
If someone throws a stick, she fetches it and brings it back.
And she can smoke with hooves and everything.
- Great. - And as you see, there's the address.
-很好 -可以看到 上面有地址
It's in the Second District.
Near the Prater. You know the Prater?
Ah, the big Ferris wheel.
- We should do it. - Everybody knows the wheel.
Perhaps you can go to the
Prater before the play. It starts at 21:30.
- 21:30? - It's 9:30.
- 9:30. - Right, right.
-9点半 -好的 好的
Okay, great. What's the name of this play?
It translates as Bring Me The Horns of Wilmington's Cow.
- I'm Wilmington's cow. - All right.
- Will you be there? - We'll try.
- I'm the cow. - You're the...
- I got an idea. Are you ready? - Yeah.
-我有个主意 准备好了吗 -嗯
It's Q & A time. We've known each other a little while now.
We're stuck together, so we're gonna ask each other
a few direct questions.
- All right? - So we ask each other questions.
- And you have to answer 100% honestly. - Of course.
- Okay. All right, first question. - You.
-好的 第一个问题 -你问
Describe for me... Yes, I'm going to ask you.
Describe for me your first sexual feelings towards a person.
My first sexual feelings. Oh, my God.
I know, I know.
We were at this summer camp together, and he was a swimmer.
He had bleached-out chlorine hair and green eyes.
And to improve his times,
he'd shave the hair off his legs and arms.
- That's disgusting. - Oh, no. He was like this gorgeous dolphin.
-好恶心 -不 他就像一只特别帅的海豚
And my friend Emma had a big, big crush on him.
So one day I was cutting across the field back to my room
and he came walking up beside me.
You know, and I told him, "You know, you should
date Emma because she has a big crush on you."
And he turned to me and said, "Well, that's too bad,
because I have a big crush on you."
It really scared the hell out of me because I thought he was so fine.
And then he officially asked me out on a date.
You know, I pretended I didn't like him.
You know, I was so afraid of, you know, what I might do, you know.
So, you know, I went to see him swim a few times
at the swimming competition.
He was so sexy, really. I mean really sexy.
他非常性感 真的 非常性感
You know, we kind of
wrote these little declarations of love to each other
at the end of the summer
and you know, promised we would keep writing forever and,
like, meet again very soon.
- Did you? - Of course not.
Well, then I think this is the opportune time to tell you
that I happen to be a fantastic swimmer.
- Really? - Yeah.
- I'll make note of that. - Okay. Uh...
- So it's my turn, no? - All right. Yes, your turn.
-到我了吧 不是吗 -好的 到你了
Have you ever been in love?
Yes. Next question.
- What was the first... - Wait a minute.
- So we can give one-word answers? - Sure. Why not?
-我们可以只回答是否吗 -当然 有何不可呢
No, no. After I went into such
private details about my first sexual feelings?
I know, but sexual, those are two very different questions.
I could answer the sexual feelings thing, no problem,
but you know, love...
What if I asked you about love?
I would have lied, but at least
- I would have made up a great story. - You would've lied!
Great. Love is a complex issue. You know...
I mean, it's like, um...
I have told somebody that I loved them before, and I had meant it.
You know, but was it totally unselfish, giving love?
Was it a beautiful thing? Not really.
I mean, I don't know.
Yeah, I know what you mean.
But as far as sexual feelings go,
I'll have you know it started
with an obsessive relationship with Miss July 1978.
- Do you know Playboy magazine? - Yeah, I've heard of it.
- Do you know Crystal? - No.
You don't know Crystal? Well, I knew Crystal.
你不认识吗 好吧 我认识
Um, is it my turn now?
Okay, tell me something that really pisses you off,
really drives you crazy.
- Pisses me off? Everything pisses me off. - Okay, list a couple.
-惹我生气 什么事都会惹我生气 -举几个例子
Um... Wait, I know.
I hate being told by strange men, a
strange man in the street...
You know, like, to smile
to make them feel better about their boring life.
I hate... I hate that 300 kilometers from here,
there's a war going on,
people are dying and nobody knows what to do about it.
Or they don't give a shit, I don't know.
I hate that the medias...
You know, they're trying to control our minds.
- The media? - Yeah, the media.
-媒体 -是 媒体
You know, it's very subtle, but it's a new form of fascism, really.
I hate when I'm in a foreign country,
especially in America... They're the worst.
Each time I wear black or
lose my temper or say anything about anything,
they always go, "Oh, it's so French, it's so cute."
他们总是说 "好法式啊 真可爱"
I hate that. I can't stand it, really.
我讨厌这点 我受不了 真的
- Is that all? - Well, there's a lot of things, but...
-就这些吗 -有很多事 但是...
- So, it's my turn. - Okay.
- You're gonna answer? - Yes, I'll answer.
-你要回答了 -是 我回答
- Uh, what's a problem for you? - You, probably.
No. I had a thought the
other day that kind of qualifies as a problem.
- What is it? - It was a thought I had on the train.
So okay, all right.
Um, do you believe in reincarnation?
- Yeah, yeah. It's interesting. - Yeah. Right.
-是 是 很有趣 -好
Most people, you know,
a lot of people talk about past lives and things like that.
You know, and even if they don't believe it in some specific way,
people have some kind of notion of an eternal soul, right?
- Yeah. - Okay. Well, this was my thought.
-对 -好的 我是这么想的
there were not even a million people on the planet.
10,000 years ago, there's,
like, two million people on the planet.
Now there's between five and six billion people on the planet, right?
Now, if we all have our own individual, unique soul,
where do they all come from?
Are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls?
'Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000-to-1 split
of each soul in just the last 50,000 years,
which is like a blip in the earth's time.
So at best, we're like these tiny fractions of people walking...
Is that why we're so scattered?
Is that why we're all so specialized?
Wait a minute. I'm not sure...
- I don't agree... - I know, I know.
-我不同意... -我知道 我知道
It's a totally scattered thought.
Which is kinda why it makes sense, you know?
Let's get off this damn train.
- This place is pretty neat. - Yeah.
There's even a listening booth over there.
Have you ever heard of this singer?
I think she's American. A friend of mine told me about her.
Do you wanna go and see if that listening booth still works?
♬There's wind that blows in from the north♬
♬And it says that loving takes this course♬
♬No I'm not impossible to touch♬
♬I have never wanted you so much♬
♬Have I never laid down by your side♬
♬Baby, let's forget about this pride♬
Look at this. This is beautiful.
Quick! It's leaving!
♬Don't have to run away this time♬
♬But it's gonna be all right this time♬
Oh, look, there's a rabbit.
Hey there, rabbit.
I visited this as a young teenager.
I think it left a bigger impression on me at that time
than any of the museums we went to.
There was this little old man that talked to us.
He was the groundskeeper.
He explained that most of the people buried here,
they'd washed up on the bank of the Danube.
How old are these?
Around the beginning of the century or so.
It's called "Cemetery of the No-Name"
because they often didn't really know
who those people were... Maybe a first name, that's all.
这些人是谁 或许知道姓什么 仅此而已
Why were all the bodies washing up?
I think some were from accidents on boats and things like that.
But most of them were suicides that jumped in the river.
I always liked the idea of
all those unknown people lost in the world.
When I was a little girl, I thought
that if none of your family or friends knew you were dead,
then it's like not really being dead.
People can invent the best and the worst for you.
Ah, here she is, I think.
Yeah, this is the one I remember the most.
She was only 13 when she died.
That meant something to me. I was that age when I first saw this.
Now I'm ten years older and she's still 13, I guess.
That's the Danube over there.
- That's a river, right? - Yeah.
Yeah, this is beautiful.
And we got, uh... We got a sunset here.
- Yeah. - We got the Ferris wheel...
this would be, uh...
Are you trying to say you want to kiss me?
- But you know what? - What?
I don't think it really matters what generation you're born into.
They were these angry, young May '68 people
revolting against everything...
you know, the government, their conservative Catholic backgrounds.
I was born not long after.
Then my father went on to become this successful architect
and we began to travel all around the world
while he built bridges and towers and stuff.
I mean, I really can't complain about anything.
You know, they love me more than anything in the world.
I've been raised with all the freedom they had fought for.
And yet, for me now, it's another type of fight.
We still have to deal with the same old shit,
but we can't really know
who or what the enemy is.
I don't know if there really is an enemy. You know?
Everybody's parents fucked them up.
Rich kids' parents gave them too much, poor kids not enough.
Um, you know, too much attention, not enough attention.
They either left them, or they stuck around,
taught 'em the wrong things.
I mean, my parents are just these two people
who didn't like each other very much,
who decided to get married and have a kid.
And they try their best to be nice to me.
- Did your parents divorce? - Yeah, finally.
They should've done it a lot sooner,
but they stuck together for a while
for the well-being of my sister and I, thank you very much.
I remember my mother once...
She told me right in front of my father,
they were having this big fight that he didn't really want to have me,
that he was really pissed off
when he found out that she was pregnant with me,
that I was this big mistake.
That really shaped the way I think.
I always saw the world as this place where I really wasn't meant to be.
Well, I mean, I eventually took pride in it,
like my life was my own doing or something,
like I was crashing the big party.
That's the way to see it.
My parents, they're still married,
and I guess they're very happy.
But I think it's a healthy process
to rebel against everything that came before.
Yeah. Yeah. But...
I've been wondering lately.
Do you know anyone who's in a happy relationship?
I know happy couples.
But I think they lie to each other.
People can live their whole life as a lie.
My grandmother, she was married to this man,
and I always thought she had a very simple and uncomplicated love life.
But she just confessed to me
that she spent her whole life
dreaming about another man she was always in love with.
She just accepted her fate. It's so sad.
In the same time, I love the idea that she had those emotions and feelings
I never thought she would have had.
I guarantee you, it was better that way.
If she'd ever got to know him,
I'm sure he would have disappointed her eventually.
How do you know? You don't know them.
It's just, people have these romantic projections they put on everything
that's not based on any kind of reality.
- Romantic projections? - Yeah.
Oh, Mr. Romantic up there on the Ferris wheel
"Oh, kiss me. The sunset. Oh, it's so beautiful."
All right, all right.
Tell me about your grandmother. What were you saying about her?
Hey, check these guys out.
"Hey, Hans, I have a confession to make.
I'm not wearing any underwear underneath this thing."
"Oh, really? Does that frighten you?"
- Can I tell you a secret? - Yeah.
- Come here. - What?
Look at this palm reader. She's interesting-looking, no?
瞧那个看手相的 她看起来很有趣 不是吗
- I just made eye contact. - She's not coming over?
- Yeah, she is. - Oh, shit.
- Oh, no. - Oh, my God.
- You want your palm read? - No. Not at all.
- Are you sure? - I'm sure.
Uh, Français, English?
I want your palm read.
Yeah. How much is it?
For you, 50. Okay?
So you have been on a journey
and you are a stranger to this place.
You are an adventurer,
an adventurer in your mind.
You are interested in the power of the woman,
in a woman's deep strength and creativity.
You're becoming this woman.
But you need to resign yourself to the awkwardness of life.
Only if you find peace within yourself
will you find true connection with others.
- He is a stranger to you? - Mmm, I guess so.
You will be all right. He's learning.
You're both stardust.
When the stars exploded billions of years ago,
they formed everything that is this world.
Everything we know is stardust.
So don't forget you are stardust.
I mean, that's very nice and all,
I mean, that we're all stardust and you're becoming this great woman.
But I hope you don't take that any more seriously
than some horoscope in a daily syndicated newspaper.
What are you talking about?
She knew I was on vacation and that we didn't know each other
and that I was going to become this great woman.
But what was that "I am learning" bullshit?
That's way condescending, you know?
She wasn't even doing me.
I mean, if opportunists like that ever had to tell the real truth,
it would put their asses out of business.
Just once I'd love to see some little old lady
save up all her money to go to the fortune-teller,
she'd get there all excited about hearing her future
and the woman would say,
"Tomorrow and all your remaining days
"will be exactly like today,
"a tedious collection of hours.
"And you will have no new passions and no new thoughts
"and no new travels.
"And when you die, you'll be completely forgotten."
"Fifty schillings, please."
That I'd like to see.
It's so funny how she almost didn't notice you, huh?
It's weird. I wonder why.
- She was really wise and intense. - Wise?Yeah?
-她既睿智又热情 -睿智 是吗
- I really love what she said. - Of course you do.
you hear something that makes you feel good about yourself.
If you want, there's a seedy section of Vienna
we can buy a hit of crack.
Would you like that? Huh? Yeah?
Oh, there's an exhibition.
Yup, I guess we'll miss it.
Doesn't start until next week.
I actually saw this one a few years ago in a museum.
I actually saw this one a few years ago in a museum.
I stared and stared at it. Must have been 45 minutes.
"La Voie Ferrée." That's great.
I love the way the people seem to be dissolving into the background.
It's like the environment's, you know, stronger than the people.
His human figures are always so transitory.
It's funny. Transitory?
- You think this is open? - I don't know. Let's try it.
-你说这里开门了没 -不知道 去看看
I was in an old church like this with my grandmother
a few days ago in Budapest.
Even though I reject most of the religious thing,
I can't help but feeling for all those people
that come here, lost or in pain, guilt,
迷失 或是痛苦 愧疚的人们
looking for some kind of answers.
It fascinates me how a single place can join so much pain and happiness
for so many generations.
You close with your grandmother?
I think it's because I always have this strange feeling
that I'm this very old woman, laying down, about to die.
You know, that my life is just memories or something.
I mean, I always think that I'm still this 13-year-old boy
who doesn't really know how to be an adult,
pretending to live my life,
taking notes for when I'll really have to do it.
Kind of like I'm in a dress rehearsal for a junior high play.
Then up there in the Ferris wheel was, like,
this very old woman kissing this very young boy. Right?
Do you know anything about the Quakers? The Quaker religion?
No, not much. No?
I went to this Quaker wedding once.
What they do is the couple comes in
and they kneel down in front of the whole congregation,
and they just stare at each other.
And nobody says a word
unless they feel that God moves them to speak or say something.
And then after an hour or so of just, uh, staring at each other,
That's beautiful. I like that.
This is a horrible story.
- It's not the appropriate place to tell it, but... - What?
-在这里说不合适 可是 -什么
I was driving around with this buddy of mine.
He's a big atheist.
And we came to a stop next to this homeless guy.
My buddy takes out a hundred-dollar bill,
he leans out of the window and he says,
"Do you believe in God?"
The guy looks at my friend, he looks at the money,
My friend says, "Wrong answer." We drove away.
- That's mean, no? - Yeah. Yeah.
Would you be in Paris by now
if you hadn't gotten off the train with me?
What would you be doing?
I'd probably be hanging around the airport,
reading old magazines,
crying in my coffee 'cause you didn't come with me.
Actually, I think I'd probably
gotten off the train in Salzburg with someone else.
Oh, yeah? Oh, I see.
So I'm just a dumb American
momentarily decorating your blank canvas, huh?
- I'm having a great time. - Really?
- Yeah. - Me too.
I'm so glad because no one knows I'm here,
and I don't know anyone
that knows you that would tell me all the bad things you've done.
- I'll tell you some. - Yeah, I'm sure.
You know, you hear so much shit about people.
I always feel like the general of an army when I start dating a guy,
plotting my strategy and maneuverings,
knowing his weak points, what would hurt him, seduce him.
If we were around each other all the time,
what would be the first thing about me that would drive you mad?
Mmm?Uh, no, no. I'm not going to answer this question.
不 不 我拒绝回答这个问题
I just, I dated this girl once who used to always ask me that.
"What about me bugs you?" you know?
So finally I said, "Well,
I don't think you handle criticism too well."
She flew into a rage and broke up with me. That's a true story.
结果她勃然大怒 跟我分手了 这是真事
All she ever really wanted to do was to have an excuse to tell me
what she thought was wrong with me.
- Is that what you want? - What?
- Something about me bugs you? - No.
Tell me. What is it about me bugs you?
Nothing. Nothing at all.
What if it had to be something, what would it be?
If it had to be something, if I had to think about it,
I kind of didn't really like this reaction back at the palm reader.
You were like this rooster prick.
Rooster prick? What the hell is a rooster prick?
You were like a little boy whining
because all the attention wasn't focused on him.
Listen, this woman robs you blind, okay?
You were like a little boy, walking by an ice cream store,
crying because his mother wouldn't buy him a milk shake or something.
- I don't care what the charlatan has to say about it? - Hello.
Oh. I understand a little bit.
But he doesn't at all. I'm sorry.
May I ask you a question?
So, I would like to make a deal with you.
I mean, instead of just asking you for money,
I will ask you for a word.
You give me a word. I'll take the word.
Then I will write a poem with the word inside.
And if you like it, I mean, if you like my poem,
if you feel it adds something to your life in any way,
then you can pay me whatever you feel like.
I write in English, of course.
- Okay. - All right. Great.
A word. Um... milkshake.
Milkshake. Oh, good. I was gonna say "Rooster prick."
奶昔 挺好 我还准备说好斗的公鸡
But great. Milk shake.
Milkshake? Okay. Milkshake.
奶昔吗 好吧 就奶昔
- All right, so, we'll... - Good.
Gotta say I like this Viennese variation of a bum.
I like what he said about adding something to your life, no?
So, uh, were we having our first fight back there?
- No. - Yeah, I think so.
I think we were.
Even if we were a little bit,
why does everyone think conflict is so bad?
There's a lot of good things coming out of conflict.
Yeah. Yeah, I guess so. I don't know.
I always think if I could just accept
the fact that my life was supposed to be difficult,
that's what's to be expected,
then I might not get so pissed off about it
and I'd be glad when something nice happens.
Maybe that's why I'm still in school.
It's easier to have something to fight against.
Yeah, well, we've all had such competitiveness ingrained in us.
I can be doing the most nothing thing.
I can be throwing some darts, shooting some pool,
and all of a sudden I feel it come over me
I have got to win.
Is that why you tried to get me off the train? Competitiveness?
- What do you mean? - Okay.
Will you read it to us?
Oh, baby, with your pretty face.
Drop a tear in my wine glass.
Look at those big eyes.
See what you mean to me?
sweet cakes and milk shakes.
I'm a delusion angel.
I'm a fantasy parade.
I want you to know what I think.
Don't want you to guess anymore.
You have no idea where I came from.
We have no idea where we're going.
Lodged in life like branches in the river.
Flowing downstream, caught in the current.
I'll carry you. You'll carry me.
That's how it could be.
Don't you know me?
Don't you know me by now?"
- Thanks. - Thanks, man.
- Thanks. - All right.
- Here. Thank you. - Thank you.
-给你 谢谢 -谢谢
- Good luck, man. - Bye.
-保重 兄弟 -再见
- That's wonderful, no? - Yeah, yeah.
- What? - You know he probably didn't just write that.
He wrote it, but he probably just plugs that word in?
You know whatever milk shake.
Nothing. I loved it. It was great.
没什么 我很喜欢这首诗 写得很好
- You know what drives me crazy? - What?
There's all these people talking
about how great technology is and how it saves time.
But what good is saved time if nobody uses it,
if it just turns into more busy work?
You never hear somebody say,
"Well, with the time I've saved by using my word processor,
I'm gonna go to a Zen monastery and hang out."
You don't hear that.
Time is abstract anyway.
- Were you looking at this girl? - What?
- You want to go in here? - What?
- You want to go in here? - Yeah. It's a club, no?
- You want to go? - Yeah.
- Fifty schillings. - Each.
I got a hundred. Here. I got it.
我这里有一百先令 给你 我来吧
I'll buy you a beer. Thank you.
- You gonna buy me a beer? - Yeah.
You think Old Milwaukee is expensive here?
We haven't talked about this yet, but are you dating anyone?
You got a boyfriend waiting on you back in Paris or anything like that?
- No, not right now. - Not right? But you did.
-暂时没有 -暂时没有 但之前有
We broke up about six months ago.
- Six months? - Yeah.
I mean, I'm not that sorry. But tell me about him.
Oh, no. No way. I can't.
- It's really really boring. - Come on, tell me about him.
Okay. I was really disappointed.
I thought this one would last for a while.
I mean, he was very stupid, ugly, bad in bed,
即使他又蠢 长得也不好看 活又差
- A real prizewinner. - Yeah.
I was kind of giving him a favor, but he left me,
saying I loved him too much
and, you know, I was blocking his artistic expression and stuff.
Shit like that, you know.
But anyway, I was traumatized and became...
And became totally obsessed with him.
And so I went to see this shrink,
you know, and it came up that I had written
this little, stupid story
about this woman trying to kill her boyfriend...
and how she was gonna do it, you know, all the intricate details.
How to do it and not get caught.
She was gonna kill her boyfriend?
Yeah, she was. I mean...
It's nothing I would do, but it was just some writing.
Anyway, this stupid shrink believed everything I was telling her.
It was my first time seeing her.
She said she had to call the police.
She had to call the police?
She was... Merde! She was
她就像 妈的 她就像
totally convinced I was really gonna do it.
Even though I'd explained
to her it was just some writing and stuff.
She said, looking deep into my eyes, "The way you said it.
她直视着我的眼睛 对我说 "你表达的方式
I know you are going to do it, the way you said it!"
She was totally out of her mind.
It was my first and last session.
So what happened then?
I totally got over him, you know.
But now I'm obsessed that
he's gonna die from an accident a thousand kilometers away.
- Oh, right. - I'm gonna be the one accused.
Why is it you become obsessed
with people you don't really like that much?
- You know what I mean? - I don't know.
- What? - Are you with anyone?
It's funny how we managed to avoid this subject for so long.
Yeah, but now you have to tell me.
Well, I kind of see love as this escape for two people
who don't know how to be alone, you know?
Or, you know what's funny?
People always talk about how
love is this totally unselfish, giving thing.
But if you think about it, there's nothing more selfish.
So, who just broke up with you?
You sound like you've just been hurt or something.
- Oh, do I? - Yeah.
All right, a big confession, you know?
I should have told you this earlier or something, but...
I didn't come to Europe just to hang out
and read Hemingway in Paris and shit like that, you know.
I saved up my money all spring to fly to Madrid
and spend the summer with my girlfriend who has been
- Your girlfriend? - My ex-girlfriend.
Who's been in this asinine art history program for the last year.
Anyway, I got here, right, and we were reunited at long last,
and we went out to dinner our first night with six of her friends
Pedro, Antonio, Gonzalo,
佩德罗 安东尼奥 冈萨罗
Maria, Suzy from home, you know?
She pretty much managed to avoid
being alone with me for the first couple of days,
and I stuck around for a while just to kinda let it really sink in
that she wished I hadn't come.
So I bought the cheapest flight out of Europe,
this one leaving out of Vienna tomorrow,
but it didn't leave for a couple of weeks,
so I bought this Eurail pass, you know.
You know what's the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you?
- Yeah? - It's when you remember how little you thought
about the people you broke up with and you realize that that
is how little they're thinking about you.
You'd like to think that you're both in all this pain,
but really, they're just,
"Hey, I'm glad you're gone."
Believe me, I know.
- You should look at bright colors. - What?
That's what the shrink told me, you know?
I was paying her 900 francs
an hour to hear that I was a homicidal maniac,
but I could perhaps shift my
obsession if I would concentrate on bright colors.
- It didn't help your pinball. - Well, no.
Yeah, well, you know, I mean, I haven't killed anyone lately.
Well, that's good. You're cured then.
I mean, there's these breeds of monkeys, right?
And all they do is have sex, like, all the time.
And, uh, they turn out to be the least violent,
the most peaceful, the most happy
You know? So, I mean, maybe foolin' around's not so bad.
Are you talking about monkeys?
Yes, I'm talking about monkeys.
- Ah, I thought so. Yeah. You know? - Why?
I never heard this one,
but it reminds me of this perfect, you know,
male argument to justify them fooling around.
No, no, no! Women monkeys are foolin' around too.
不 不 不 雌性猴子也鬼混
Everybody's fooling around.
You know, I have this awful, paranoid thought
that feminism was mostly invented by men
so they could, like, fool around a little more.
You know, "Woman, free your mind. Free your body. Sleep with me.
"女人 解放你们的思想 解放你们的身体 和我睡吧
We're all happy and free as long as I can fuck as much as I can."
- Ah! All right, all right. - I'm sure.
But maybe, maybe there's some biological things at work here.
- Biological. - If you had an island, right?
And there were 99 women on the island and only one man,
- in a year you'd have the possibility of 99 babies. - Right.
-一年之后 岛上可能有了99个孩子 -没错
But if you have an island with 99 men and only one woman,
in a year you have the possibility of only one baby.
- So? - So? You know what?
-所以呢 -所以 你知道吗
- What? - On this island, you know,
I think there will be only, like, maybe 43 men left
because they would have killed each other trying to fuck this poor woman.
You know what I mean?
And on the other island, there would be 99 women, 99 babies,
because they would have all gotten together and eaten him alive.
Oh, yeah? Yeah? See, I think there's something to that.
I think on some level,
women don't mind the idea of destroying a man.
You know? Like, I was once walking
down the street with my ex-girlfriend, you know, right?
We just walked by those, you know,
real four thuggy-looking guys next to a Camaro.
And, uh, one of 'em sure enough says, "Hey, baby, nice ass."
So I'm like, "All right. Hey, no big deal.
I'm not gonna get uptight about this." Right?
Yeah, plus, you know, there were four of them.
Yeah, exactly. There's four of 'em.
But she turns around, she says, "Fuck you, dickheads!"
And I'm like, "Okay, wait a minute here." Right?
我就在想"等等 什么情况" 明白吧
They're not gonna come over here and kick her ass.
You know what I mean?
So who just got pushed to the front line on that one?
You see what I'm saying?
I mean, women say they hate it
if you're all territorial and protective,
but if it suits them, then
they'll tell you you're being all unmanly or wimpy.
You know what? I don't think women really wants to destroy men.
Even if they want to, they don't succeed. You know what I mean?
就算她们想 也做不到 明白吗
I'm sure even men are destroying women, all right?
or are capable of destroying women much more than women.
或者说 比起女人 男人更会毁掉对方
Well, anyway. It's depressing. You know what?
总之 说来说去都很悲伤 你知道吗
What? You wanna stop talking about this?
Yeah. I hate it.
- Okay. Over it. - You know, man-woman.
-好的 翻篇了 -你知道的 男人女人
There's no end to this.
- Like? You know. - It's like a skipping record, you know?
Every couple's been having this conversation forever.
And nobody came up with anything.
I saw a documentary on that. It's a birth dance.
- A birth dance. - Yeah.
- Should I give her some money? - Yeah.
Everything that's interesting costs a little bit of money.
So a birth dance, huh?
Looked a little bit like a mating dance to me.
No, but really, women used it when giving birth.
不是 但是真的 在女人生孩子的时候跳
In some part of the world, they still do it.
The woman in labor enters a tent,
and the women of her tribe surround her and dance,
and they encourage the birthing woman to dance with them
- so as to make the birth less painful. - Yeah?
And when the baby's born, they all dance in celebration.
Wow. I don't think my mom would've gone for that.
I like the idea of dancing as a common function in life,
something everybody participates in.
Mmm. I know. I heard about this old guy
who, uh, was watching some young people dance,
and he said, "How beautiful.
They're trying to shake off their genitals and become angels."
All right, one question. Go back there?
好 提个问题 回到刚刚的话题
When the women are dancing and being all spiritual and stuff, right?
Where are the men? Are we out food gathering?
Are we not invited? Y'all don't need us? What?
没邀请我们 不需要我们吗 还是怎样
don't bite off their head after mating.
Certain insects do that, you know? Like spiders and stuff?
有的昆虫就是这样 知道吗 蜘蛛一类的
- Mm-hmm. - We at least let you live.
- What are you complaining about? - Yeah.
See, you're officially kidding, but there's somethin' to that.
- You keep bringing stuff like that up. - What?
- Yeah! - No, no, no. Wait a minute.
-没错 -不 不 等一下
Talking seriously here.
I mean, I always feel this pressure
of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood
and not making...making
look like my whole life is revolving around some guy.
But... loving someone, and being loved,
means so much to me.
I always make fun of it and stuff,
but isn't everything we dream in life
a way to be loved a little more?
Sometimes I dream about being a good father and a good husband.
- And sometimes that feels really close. - Hmm.
But then other times,
like it would, uh, ruin my whole life.
And it's not just a...a fear of commitment
or that I'm incapable of caring or loving,
It's just that... if I'm totally honest with myself,
I think I'd rather die knowing that
I was really good at something,
that I had excelled in some way.
You know? Than that I'd just been in a nice, caring relationship.
But... I had worked for this older man,
and once he told me that he had spent all of his life
thinking about his career and his work.
And... he was 52, and it suddenly struck him...
他当时52岁 他说 有天他突然感到
that he had never really given anything of himself.
His life was for no one and nothing.
He was almost crying saying that.
You know, I believe if there's any kind of God,
it wouldn't be in any of us,
But just this little space in between.
If there's any kind of magic in this world,
it must be in the attempt
of understanding someone, sharing something.
I know. It's almost impossible to succeed.
But... who cares, really?
The answer must be in the attempt.
I really think this is a civilization in decline.
- Look at the service. - The service?
Where is the waitress? In New York,
this person would be out of a job.
Okay. Now I'm gonna call my best friend in Paris,
who I'm supposed to have lunch with in eight hours.
Dring. Dring. Dring. Dring.
叮铃 叮铃 叮铃
- Dring. Dring. Pick up! - What?
-叮铃 叮铃 接电话啊 -什么
- Pick up the phone. - Uh, oh, hello?
-快接电话 -哦 你好
- Allo? Vani, c'est Celine. - Mm-hmm?
-你好 范妮 我是席琳 -嗯哼
Sa va bien. Et toi?
I-I've been workin' on my English recently.
You wanna talk in English? Just for laughs?
Yeah, okay. That's a good idea.
Um, I don't think I'm gonna
be able to make it for lunch today. I'm sorry.
I...I met a guy on the train,
and I got off with him in Vienna.
- We're still there. - Are you crazy?
Wh-What, he's Austrian? He's from there?
No, no, no, no. He's passing through here too. He's American.
不 不 他也是路过的 他是美国人
He's going back home tomorrow morning.
Why'd you get off the train with him?
Well, he convinced me.
I mean, actually, I was...
was ready to get off the train with him
after talking to him a short while.
He was so sweet, I couldn't help it.
We were in the lounge car,
and he begin to talk about him as
a little boy seeing his great-grandmother's ghost.
I think that's when I fell for him.
Just the idea of this little boy with all those beautiful dreams.
He has beautiful blue eyes, nice pink lips.
Greasy hair! I love it.
He's kind of tall and he's a little clumsy.
I like to feel his eyes on me when I look away.
He kind of kisses like an adolescent. It's so cute.
- What? - Yeah, we kissed.
-什么 -没错 我们亲吻了
It was so adorable.
As the night went on, I began to like him more and more.
But I'm afraid he's scared of me.
You know, I told him the story about
the woman that kills her ex-boyfriend and stuff.
He must be scared to death.
He must be thinking I'm this manipulative, mean woman.
I just hope he doesn't feel that way about me.
Because you know me. I'm the most harmless person.
The only person I could really hurt is myself.
I don't think he's scared of you.
- I think he's crazy about you. - Really?
I've known you a long time, and I got a good feeling.
You gonna see him again?
We haven't talked about that yet.
Okay. It's your turn. You call your friend.
好啦 到你了 你给你朋友打电话
- Okay? - Uh...All right, all right.
-好不 -好 没问题
Bring, bring, bring.
叮铃 叮铃 叮铃
I usually get this guy's answering machine. Brrring!
Hi, dude. What's up?
嘿 哥们儿 怎么个事
Uh... Hey, Frank, how ya been?
Glad you're home.
Cool. Yeah. So how was Madrid?
Uh, Madrid sucked.
Uh, you know, Lisa and I had our long-overdue meltdown.
Oh, too bad. I told you, no?
太糟了 早和你说过 兄弟
Yeah, yeah, yeah. The long-distance thing just never works.
I was only in Madrid for a couple days.
And I got a cheaper flight out of Vienna,
you know, it really wasn't that much cheaper.
I just, uh...I couldn't go home right away.
I didn't wanna see anybody I knew.
I just wanted to be a ghost, completely anonymous.
- So are you okay now? - Yeah.
Yeah. No, no. Yeah! I'm great. I'm great. That's the thing.
没事 没事 我很好 就是要说这个
And I'll tell you why.
I met somebody on my last night in Europe. Can you believe that?
- That's incredible. - I know. I know.
And you know how they say
we're all each other's demons and angels?
Well, she was literally a Botticelli angel,
just tellin' me that everything was gonna be okay.
How did you meet?
She was sittin' next to this very weird couple
that started fighting, so she had to move.
She sat right across the aisle from me.
So we started to talk.
And, uh, she didn't like me much at first.
She's super-smart, very passionate,
And I was so unsure of myself.
I thought everything I said sounded so stupid.
Aw, man, I wouldn't worry about that.
Nah, I'm sure she was not judging you.
No. And by the way, she sat next to you, no?
肯定的 而且 她不是坐你旁边了吗
- I'm sure she did it in purpose. - Oh, yeah?
Us men are so stupid. We don't understand anything about women.
They act kind of strange, the little I know of them.
I feel like this is some dream world we're in, you know?
Yeah, it's so weird.
It's like our time together is just ours.
It's our own creation.
It must be like I'm in your dream
and you're in mine or something.
And what's so cool is that
this whole evening, all our time together,
shouldn't officially be happening.
Yeah, I know. Maybe that's why this feels so otherworldly.
But then the morning comes and we turn into pumpkins, right?
但等朝阳升起 我们就又变回南瓜 对吗参见灰姑娘童话
But at this time, I think you're supposed to
produce the glass slipper and see if it fits.
This friend of mine had a kid, and it was a home birth,
so he was there helping out and everything.
But he said at that profound moment of birth...
Uh, he was watching his child experiencing life for the first time,
trying to take its first breath.
All he could think about was that
he was lookin' at somethin' that was gonna die someday.
He just couldn't get it out of his head.
And I think that's so true. You know, everything is so finite.
I mean, but...but don't you think that's what, um,
makes our time and specific moments so important?
Yeah, I know. It's the same for us tonight though.
After tomorrow morning,
we're probably never gonna see each other again, right?
You don't think we'll ever see each other again?
Gosh, I don't know. Uh...
- I mean, I hadn't planned another trip to... - Uh, me too.
I mean, I live in Paris. You live in the US. I totally understand...
我在巴黎 你在美国 我很能理解...
I'd hate to make you fly. You hate to fly, right?
I'm not so scared of flying.
- I mean, I could. - Well, if you were gonna come to the US
or if, you know, I mean, if I...
Or you know, I mean, I could come back here.
No, let's just be rational adults about this.
Maybe we should try something different.
I mean, it's not so bad if tonight is our only night, right?
People always exchange phone numbers, addresses.
They end up writing once, calling each other once or twice.
Right. Fizzles out.
Yeah. I mean, I don't want that. I hate that.
是 我不想那样 我讨厌那样
I hate that too. Yeah.
Why do you think everybody thinks
relationships are supposed to last forever anyway?
Yeah, why? It's stupid.
是的 为什么 太蠢了
But you think tonight's it, huh?
I mean, that... tonight's our only night?
It's the only way, no?
No delusions. No projections.
We'll just make tonight great.
- Okay, let's do that. - Okay.
-好 就这么做 -好
We should do some kind of handshake, you know?
To our one and only night together...
and, uh, the hours that remain.
It's just... It's depressing, no?
Now the only thing we're gonna think of is
when we're gonna have to say good-bye tomorrow.
We could say good-bye now.
Then we wouldn't have to worry about it in the morning.
- Now? - Yeah. Say good-bye.
-现在吗 -是的 说拜拜
- Bye! - Good-bye!
- Later. - Later.
All right. So here's the plan, right?
You're gonna grab the glasses and I'm gonna get the wine.
- Red wine. - Red wine. Right.
-红酒 -红酒 好
- You think you can do that? - No problem.
- Wish me luck. - Good luck.
- Do you speak English? - Mmm. A bit.
- Yeah? A bit? Well, All right. - Yeah.
-是吗 一点点 那好 -是的
I'm having kind of an odd situation, which is that, um...
Uh. This is... You see that girl over there?
- Yeah. - Yeah? Well, this is our only night together.
Um, and she, uh... All right.
Here's the problem. The problem is that she wants a bottle of red wine.
And I don't have any money. You see?
But what I was thinkin' was that you might wanna, um,
uh, give me the address of this bar.
No. I know. And I would promise to send you the money.
And you'd be making our night complete.
- You would send me the money? - Yes.
For the greatest night in your life.
Thank you very much.
So often in my life
I've been with people and shared beautiful moments
like traveling or staying up all night and watching the sunrise,
and I knew those were special moments.
But something was always wrong.
I wished I'd been with someone else.
I knew that what I was feeling,
exactly what was so important to me,
they didn't understand.
But I'm happy to be with you.
You couldn't possibly know why a night like this
is so important to my life right now,
This is a great morning.
It is a great morning.
Do you think we'll have others like this?
- What? - What about our rational, adult decision?
I know what you mean about
wishing that somebody wasn't there though.
It's just usually, it's myself that I wish I could get away from.
Seriously, think about this.
I have never been anywhere that I haven't been.
I've never, uh, had a kiss when I wasn't one of the kissers.
You know, I've never, um,
gone to the movies when I wasn't there in the audience.
I never been out bowling if I wasn't there,
you know, makin' some stupid joke.
I think that's why so many people hate themselves. Seriously.
It's just that they are sick to death of being around themselves.
Let's say you and I were together all the time.
You'd start to hate a lot of my mannerisms...
The way every time that we would have people over, uh,
I'd be insecure and I'd get a little too drunk.
Or, uh, the way I tell the same stupid,
pseudo-intellectual story again and again.
You see, I've heard all those stories.
So, of course I'm sick of myself.
being with you, uh,
has made me feel like I was somebody else.
And the only other way to lose yourself like that is, um,
you know, dancing or alcohol or...
比如 跳舞 喝酒
drugs and stuff like that.
- Fu...Fucking. Yeah. That's one way. Yeah. - Yeah?
-做爱 没错 是个办法 -是吧
Do you know what I want?
Well, I can do that.
I have to say something stupid.
- It's very stupid. - Okay.
I don't think we should sleep together.
I mean, I want to, but
since we're never gonna see each other again,
it'll make me feel bad.
I'll wonder who else you're with. I'll miss you.
I know. It's not very adult.
Maybe it's a female thing. I can't help it.
Let's see each other again.
No, I don't want you to break our vow just so you can get laid.
I don't wanna just get laid. I want to, um...
I mean, I mean, I think we should.
I mean, we die in the morning, right?
- I think we should. - No. Then it's like some male fantasy.
-我觉得应该 -不 那就成了男人的渴望
Meet a French girl on the train,
fuck her and never see her again.
This great story to tell. I don't wanna be a great story.
I don't want this great evening to just have been for that.
Okay. We don't have to have sex. It's not a big deal.
好 我们不上床 没什么大不了的
You don't wanna see me again?
No, of course I do. Listen.
If somebody gave me the choice right now
of to never see you again or to marry you,
I would marry you, all right?
And maybe that's a lot of romantic bullshit,
but people have gotten married for a lot less.
I decided I wanted to sleep with you when we got off the train.
Now that we've talked so much, I don't know anymore.
- Oh, God. - What?
Why do I make everything so complicated?
What do you think's the first
thing you're gonna do when you get back to Paris?
Call my parents. What about you?
I don't know. I'll probably go pick up my dog.
He's stayin' with a friend of mine.
- You have a dog? I love dogs. - Yeah. You do?
-你养狗 我很喜欢狗 -嗯 是吗
- Yeah. - Oh. Oh, shit.
I don't know. We're back in real time.
I know. I hate that.
Sounds like a harpsichord.
- Oh, check that out. - Somebody's playing.
You ever danced to a harpsichord?
- Oh, wow. - What?
Uh, I'm gonna take your picture...
so I never forget you
or, uh, Or all this.
"The years shall run like rabbits."
I have this, uh, recording of Dylan Thomas
reading a W.H. Auden poem.
He's got a great voice.
- He just...It's like... - Hmm? What?
"All the clocks in the city began to whir and chime.
Oh, let not time deceive you.
You cannot conquer time.
In headaches and in worry,
vaguely life leaks away,
and time will have his fancy
tomorrow or today."
Somethin' like that.
When you talked earlier about after a few years
how a couple would begin to hate each other
by anticipating their reactions or getting tired of their mannerisms,
I think it would be the opposite for me.
I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone
The way he's gonna part his hair, which shirt he's gonna wear that day,
knowing the exact story he'd tell in a given situation.
I'm sure that's when I know I'm really in love.
- Hey, guess what. - What?
We didn't go to those guys' play.
- The cow? - Yeah.
Oh, yeah, we didn't. Oh, no. We missed it.
对哦 没去 竟然错过了
Okay. You know what bus you're taking to the airport, right?
- Yeah, no problem. - I should get on this one.
- Right here? You wanna get on that one? - Yeah.
-就这 这节车厢么 - 是的
- I guess this is it, no? - Yeah.
I-I...I mean, You know.
Yeah, I know. Me too.
I... My... Yeah.
Have a great life. Have fun with everything you're gonna do.
All right, all right. Good luck with school and all that.
行吧 祝你好运 学业进步
- Me too. The train is about to leave. - Yeah.
-我也是 火车要开了 -是的
Listen. All this bullshit we were talkin' about...
About not seeing each other again?
- I don't wanna do that. - I don't wanna do that either.
- You don't either? - I was waiting for you to say.
Why didn't you say something?
I was afraid maybe you didn't want to see me.
Listen, what do you wanna do?
Maybe... Maybe we should meet here in five years or something.
All right, all right. Five years? Five years? That's a long time.
好 五年吗 五年 那么久
Yes, it's awful. It's like a sociological experiment.
- How 'bout one year? - One year. All right. All right.
-要不一年 -一年 好
- One? How 'bout six months? - Six months?
-一年吗 要不六个月 -六个月吗
- Yeah. - It's gonna be freezing.
Who cares? We come here, we go somewhere else.
Uh, six months from now or last night?
- Um, Last night. Six months from last night... - Okay.
-昨晚 昨晚开始六个月后 -好
which was, uh, June 16.
So, uh, track nine, six months from now at 6:00 at night.
九号站台 六个月后 晚上六点钟
- De...December. - December, yeah.
It's a train ride for you.
I gotta fly all the way over here and shit like that.
But I'm gonna be here.
- Okay, me too. - All right.
-好 我也是 -好
- And we're not gonna call, write or... - Nah, it's depressing.
-我们不打电话 不写信 -不 不然多郁闷
- Yeah. Okay. - All right.
All right. Your train's gonna leave. Say good-bye.
好 火车要开了 说拜拜
