Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E. L. James. It is the first instalment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism (BDSM). Originally self-published as an ebook and a print-on-demand, publishing rights were acquired by Vintage Books in March 2012. Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world, selling over 125 million copies worldwide by June 2015. It has been translated into 52 languages, and set a record in the United Kingdom as the fastest-selling paperback of all time. Critical reception of the book, however, has tended towards the negative, with the quality of its prose generally seen as poor. Universal Pictures and Focus Features produced a film adaptation, which was released on 13 February 2015 and also received generally unfavourable reviews. The second and third volumes of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, were published in 2012. Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, a version of Fifty Shades of Grey being told from Christian's point of view, was published in June 2015.

Anastasia Steele:
It sounds sad. Everything you play is so sad. When you were six you learned it, because you wanted to please your new family? [Christian keeps playing] Why won't you let me in? We should be talking.

Christian Grey:
Like normal people?

Anastasia Steele:
Yes. Is that so wrong? Is it because of the contract? Because I still haven't signed it?

Christian Grey:
F*** the contract! I think it's a little redundant, don't you?

Anastasia Steele:
So the rules are redundant, too?

Christian Grey:
No. The rules stand.

Anastasia Steele:
And what if I break them?

Christian Grey:
Then there will be consequences.

Anastasia Steele:
Punishment?

Christian Grey:
Yes.

Anastasia Steele:
Why do you want to punish me?

Christian Grey:
Ana...

Anastasia Steele:
Why do you want to hurt me?

Christian Grey:
I would never do anything that you couldn't handle.

Anastasia Steele:
But why do you even want to do anything to me at all, Christian?

Christian Grey:
If I told you, you'll never look at me the same way again.

Anastasia Steele:
So there is a reason. Tell me. Do you want to punish me right now?

Christian Grey:
Yes, I want to punish you right now.

Anastasia Steele:
And what if I told you that I feel the same way about being punished as you do about me touching you. Would you still want to punish me then?

Christian Grey:
No. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't need to.

Anastasia Steele:
Why?

Christian Grey:
Ana, stop!

Anastasia Steele:
Why do you need to?

Christian Grey:
Because it's the way I am! Because I'm fifty shades of f***ed up.

Anastasia Steele:
Show me, then. I need you to show me. What you want to do to me. Punish me! Show me how bad it can be. I want you to show me the worst. [pause] It's the only way I can understand.

Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey:
They're here! You're here. Welcome welcome. [She hugs Ana]

Christian Grey:
Ana, mother you've met.

Anastasia Steele:
Hi lovely to meet you!

Christian Grey:
And this is my father, Carrick.

Anastasia Steele:
Hi. Pleasure to meet you!

Mr. Grey:
It's nice to meet you. There's been a lot of speculation!

Mia Grey:
Oh my god!You exist! [She hugs Ana]

Kate Kavanagh:
It's a great apartment, and the rent's not ridiculous. Elliot and Jose helped us move in. Jose is Ana's friend, although I think Elliot's trying to poach me. [Christian puts his hand on Ana's leg]

Elliot Grey:
He's a cool guy.

Mr. Grey:
Ana, where is your family from?

Anastasia Steele:
My stepfather lives in Montesano and my mom lives in Georgia.

Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey:
Georgia? Which part?

Anastasia Steele:
Savannah.

Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey:
How nice! Although I do hear it gets really humid in Georgia at this time of year.

Anastasia Steele:
Oh my god, it does. It's stifling sometimes. [she takes Christian hand off her leg] Actually , I'm gonna visit her tomorrow.

Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey:
How nice! You hear that, Christian? Some children do visit her parents now and again.

Elliot Grey:
Hey dad, you catch the Mariners game?

Mr. Grey:
I heard it went back stream.

Mia Grey:
Ah, Seattle baseball... [she starts to speak french]

Christian Grey:
This is news to me. When were you gonna tell me? [to Ana]

Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey:
Who wants coffee?

Christian Grey:
Actually, I promised Ana a tour of the grounds. Excuse us.
