You've Got Mail 电子情缘
Just had a breakthrough.
What you have done is clearly over the top,
Selected Scene 1 :
Joe: Kathleen Kelly, hello, This is a coincidenceWould you mind if I sat down ?
Kathleen: Yes, yes, I would. ActuaIIy l'm expecting someone. Thanks.
Joe: Pride and Prejudice,
Kathleen: Do you mind ?
Joe: I bet you read that book every year. I bet you just love that Mr.Darcy and your sentimentaf heart just beats wildly at the thought that he ancf, well, you know whatever her name is, are truly honestly going to end up together.
Waiter: Can I get you something ?
Kathleen: No, no, he's not staying.
Joe: Mochachino, decaf, non-fat.
Kathleen: No, you are not staying.
Joe: I'II iust stay here until your friend gets here. Gee, is he late?
Kathleen: The heroine of Pride and Prejudice is Elizabeth Bennet.
She is one of the greatest and most complex characters ever written, not that you would know.
Joe: As a matter of fact, l've read it,
Kathleen: Oh, well, good for you,
Joe : I think you 'll discover a lot of things if you ready knew me.
KathIBen: lf I really knew you, I know that I would find instead of a brain, a cash register, instead of a heart, a bottomfine.
Kathleen: I just had a breakthrough.
Joe: What is it ?
Kathleen: I have you to thank for it, for the first time in my life. when confronted with a horrible, insensitive person I knew exactiy what I wanted to say and I said it.
Joe: Well, ( think You have a gift for it. It was a perfect blend of poetry anci meanness.
Kathleen: Meanness let me tell you something about
Joe: Don't misunderstand me. l'm just trying to pay you a compliment.
Kathleen: Oh, c)h, why are you touching that ? \Nhat are you doing ?
Joe: Is this a red rose ? No, You know it's a crimson rose. Something you read about in a book, no doubt.
Kathleen: lt's funny to you, isn't it ? Everything is a joke to you.
Please ieave. Please, please leave, I bee you. Thank you.
Joe: You know what that hankY 'reminds me of ?
Joe: The first day I met you.
Kathleen: The first day you lied to me.
Joe: I didn't lie to you.
Kathteen: You did too.
Joe: No, ldidn't.
Kathleen: Yes, you did.
Joe: I did not.
Kathleen: You did too.
Joe: I did not,
Kathleen: You did too.
Joe: I did not.
Kathleen: You did too. I thought all that Fox stuff was so charming.
Joe: Well, I didn 't lie about it.
Kathleen: Joe, just call me Joe.
Kathleen: As if you were one of those stupid 22-year old girls with no last name. Hi, l'm Kimberly, hi, l'm Janice. Don't they know you're supposed to have a last name ? lt's like they're an entire generation of cocktail waitresses.
Joe: Look, I am not a 22-year old cocktail waitress
Kathleen : That is not what I meant.
Joe: And when I said the thing about the Price Club and the cans of olive oil, that's not what I meant.
Kathleen: Oh, you poor sad rnutti-millionaire. I feel so sorrY for you.
( Someone comes into, Kathleen raises her head and looks forward. )
Joe: Take a wild guess that's not him either. So who is he, I wonder ? Certainly not l, gather the world's greatest living expert on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg but somebody else entirely different. And will you be mean to him too ?
KathIeen: No, I will not. Because the man who is coming here tonight is completely unlike you. The man who js coming here tonight is kind and funny and he's got the most wonderful sense of humor.
Joe : But, he's not here.
Kathleen: Well, if he's not here he has a reason because there's not a CrUeI or caraless bone in his body. But I wouldn 't expect you to understand anybody like that. You with your theme pafk multi-level homogenize the world mochachino land. You 've deluded yourself into thinking that you're some sort of benafactor bringing books to the masses. But no one will ever remember you Joe Fox and maybe no one will remember me either, but plenty of people remember my mother and they think she was fine and they think her store was something special, You are nothing but a suit.
Joe: That's my cue, Have a good night

Joe: I think you Should meet him. No, I take that back. Why would you wanna meet somebodY you ' re crazy about '?
Kathlteen: Hey, l hardly think l need to take advic8 from a person
Joe: No, I can se6 that I brought out the worst in you. Let me just help you to not say something you're just going to torture yourself about for years to come. I hope you feel better soon. lt'd be a shame to miss New York in the spring.
