Jesse: I got an idea. Are you ready? It's Q and A time. We've known each other a little while. We're stuck together, so we'll ask each other a few direct questions. All right?
Celine: We ask each other questions?
Jesse: And you have to answer honestly.
Celine: Of course.
Jesse: Okay. All right, first question.
Jesse: Yes, I am going to ask you. Describe for me your first sexual feelings towards a person.
Celine: My first sexual feelings? Oh, my God. I know. I know. Jean-Marc Fleury.
Jesse: Jean-Marc Fleury?
Celine: 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 his legs and arms.
Jesse: That's disgusting.
Celine: He was like this gorgeous dolphin. My friend Emma had a big crush on him. So one day, I was cutting across the field back to my room and he came walking up beside me. I told him. You should date Emma. 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. So, yeah, it really scared the hell out of me because I thought he was so fine. Then he officially asked me on a date. I pretended I didn't like him. You know, I was so afraid of what I might do, you know. So I went to see him swim a few times at the competition. And he was so sexy. Really. I mean, really sexy. We wrote these little declarations of love at the end of the summer and, you know, promised we would keep writing forever and meet again very soon and--
Jesse: Did you?
Celine: Of course not.
Jesse: Then this is the opportune time to tell you I'm a fantastic swimmer.
Celine: I make note of that.
Celine: So it's my turn. No?
Jesse: Yes, your turn。 Hit me.
Celine: Have you ever been in love?
Jesse: Yes. Next question. What was the--
Celine: Wait a minute. So I can give one-word answers?
Jesse: Sure. Why not?
Celine: After I went into detail about my sexual feelings?
Jesse: Yeah, I know. But they' re different questions. I could answer the sexual-feelings thing. But, you know, love-- I mean, what if I asked you about love?
Celine: I would have lied, but at least I would have made up a great story.
Jesse: Love is a complex issue, you know? I mean, yes, I've told somebody that I love them, and I've meant it. But was it totally unselfish, giving love? Was it a beautiful thing? Not really. You know, it's like, love. I mean, I don't know. You know?
Celine: Yeah. I know what you mean.
Jesse: But as far as sexual feelings go, it started with an obsessive relationship with Miss July, 1978. Do you know Playboy magazine?
Celine: I've heard of it.
Jesse: You know Crystal? You don't know Crystal? Well, I knew Crystal. Is it my turn now? Tell me something that really pisses you off. Really drives you crazy.
Celine: Pisses me off. God, everything pisses me off.
Jesse: List a couple.
Celine: Oh, I know. I hate being told by strange men, strange men in the street you know, to smile to make them feel better about their boring life.
Jesse: What else?
Celine: I hate, I hate that 300 kilometers from here, there's a war, people are dying, and nobody knows what to do. Or they don't give a shit. I don't know. I hate that the media's trying to control our minds.
Jesse: The media?
Celine: Yeah, the media. It's very subtle, but it's a new form of fascism, really. I hate, I hate when I'm in a foreign country, especially in America, 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. I hate that. I can't stand that. Really.
Jesse: Is that all?
Celine: Well, there's a lot of things, but. So it's my turn.
