Favorite Quotes

Nora: “What is it about hearing ‘Ma’am’ in a southern accent that just curls my toes?”

Nora: “Aren’t you gallant? I love you southern boys.”

Jesse: “And I’m starting to get very fond of Yankee women.”

Nora: “If you weren’t fond of us before, you will be after tonight.”

Jesse: “What happened?”

She smiled, almost sadly this time.

Nora: “My priest bailed me out and talked the judge into giving me community service instead. But I had to sign my life away basically.”

Jesse: “To the judge?”

Nora: “To my priest. He owned me after that. The judge put him in charge of my community service. But he did a good job. I am now thoroughly reformed.”

Jesse laughed so hard he almost fell off the bed.

Jesse: “If this is you reformed, I’d hate to see you backslide.”

Nora: “The world shudders at the thought.”

Nora: “Hey, I know that song.”

Grinning, Jesse stopped playing long enough to adjust his capo.

Jesse: “Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.”

Nora: “What is it?”

He looked at her.

Jesse: “You don’t know what it is?”

Nora: “I’ve heard it. Wes—best friend, roommate, guitar owner—he plays it all the time.”

Jesse started laughing and she sat on the bed across from him.

Jesse: “It’s called ‘That Summer.’  It’s a Garth Brooks song from the nineties. Your nineteen-year-old roommate plays this around the house all the time? Is he a virgin by any chance?”

Nora gave him a half smile and a look of shock.

Nora: “He is actually. Methodist. Really Methodist. Why? He plays the song but he never sings it. Does it have lyrics?”

Jesse: “It does. I don’t remember them all though so don’t make me sing them. The song’s about a teenage boy who goes to work for a widow one summer, and she takes his virginity and teaches him all about life and sex. Your roommate isn’t a little bit in love with you, is he?”

Nora: “No way. He and I are just friends. But he’s a smart ass. That’s probably why he plays it all the time.

Nora: “Too funny. I’m going to tease Wes about it when he comes home.”

Jesse: “You gonna tease him that you slept with one of his favorite singers?”

Nora: “Nope. I want Wes to be able to enjoy your music without imagining me going down on you. Although I have every intention of buying one of your albums and imagining going down on you while I listen to it.”

Jesse: “That is every musician’s dream."

Nora: “Don’t worry, Kid. I never program real names in my phone. Carter Bailey is under Care Bear.”

Jesse: “I’m sure he’d be thrilled. What am I?”

Nora: “You? You’re The Metronome.”
