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 shit 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 shit 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? Shit. 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.
