Matt Freehauf:
Buddy is a married man. By all accounts, happily.

Mavis Gary:
Yeah, happily married men go to bars alone with their ex-girlfriends all the time. They call them privately and they make out with them on porches.

Matt Freehauf:
He did not make out with you.

Mavis Gary:
You weren't there. We made out. It was intense and passionate. He gave me his sweatshirt.

Matt Freehauf:
Yes, I noticed. They probably noticed in space. And FYI, you look completely insane wearing it. Look, I don't know what Buddy's doing with you or what you think he's doing with you, but you need to move on.

Mavis Gary:
You're one to talk. All you care about is some scuffle that happened 20 years ago. You lean on that crutch and you lean on excuses and you and I both know that you use this whole thing as an excuse to do absolutely nothing with your life.

Matt Freehauf:
Scuffle. You don't know sh*t about what happened to me. Okay? Those jocks you used to blow during lunch, they shattered my legs, bashed in my brains, mangled my cock so that I have to piss and cum sideways for the rest of my life. Then they left me for dead. You know, things aren't too great down south. I can barely get off by myself let alone with another person.

Mavis Gary:
You know, what's done is done. You can't keep dwelling on the past, Matt.

Matt Freehauf:
Are you f***ing kidding? Talk about dwelling on the past. Here you are back in Mercury, like a loser, trying to score with a happily married man.

Mavis Gary:
Buddy's not happy, okay? So just stop saying that.

Matt Freehauf:
You're hardly the authority on happiness, Sylvia.

Mavis Gary:
You know what, Matt? It really is a shame that you're like this because if you had a good personality none of this other stuff would bother people.

Matt Freehauf:
Why don't you use my crutch again as a metaphor? That was brilliant. That was masterful. Or no, save it for your little teenage stories because God knows you don't know sh*t about being an adult!

Mavis Gary:
Hey, do you know this girl named Beth? She married Buddy Slade from school.

Sandra Freehauf:
Yeah, I know that Beth.

Mavis Gary:
What do you think of her?

Sandra Freehauf:
I don't really like her. I mean, I think you're way prettier than she is. What happened to your dress? I'm sorry, did I say something wrong? Sh*t. What's wrong? What did I say?

Mavis Gary:
I have a lot of problems.

Sandra Freehauf:
Can't you get a new dress?

Mavis Gary:
It's really difficult for me to be happy. And then for other people it just seems so simple. I know. They just grow up and they're so fulfilled.

Sandra Freehauf:
I don't feel fulfilled. And frankly, if you don't feel fulfilled with all the stuff that you have.

Mavis Gary:
I need to change, Sandra.

Sandra Freehauf:
No you don't.

Mavis Gary:
What?

Sandra Freehauf:
You're the only person in Mercury who could write a book or wear a dress like that.

Mavis Gary:
I'm sure there's plenty of other people who could.

Sandra Freehauf:
Everyone here is fat and dumb.

Mavis Gary:
Don't say that. I mean, you think so?

Sandra Freehauf:
Everyone wishes that they could be like you. You know, living in the big city all famous and beautiful and all that.

Mavis Gary:
I'm not really famous.

Sandra Freehauf:
Well, you know, special or whatever. I mean, some days when I have a slow shift at work I'll sit and think about you living in your cool apartment, going out and stuff. It seems really nice.

Mavis Gary:
Yeah, but most people here seem so happy with so little. It's like they don't even seem to care what happens to them.

Sandra Freehauf:
That's because it doesn't matter what happens to them. They're nothing. Might as well die. F*** Mercury.
