More - 2 days in Paris

On blow jobs and ex-lovers.....

Marion: Well, we met many years ago and we had a little thing, I think I gave him a blow job. No big deal.

Jack: A blow job is no big deal?

Marion: Oh I’m sorry. I mean it’s no big deal in comparison to what’s going on in the world. You know, there’s George Bush, there’s the war in Iraq, there’s avian flu and there’s a blow job. You know what I mean, it’s like consideration.

Jack: Nice transition.

Marion: It’s a pretty minor event don’t you think?

Jack: Yea, I would say it’s not a minor event, if you want to start talking in the grander political scheme of things, if you think about it, I mean it was a blow job after all that brought down America's last chance at a healthy democracy so…


Jack: Are you friends with all your ex’s?

Marion: I’m friends with some of my ex, you know most of them…..


Marion: You’re not friend’s with any of your ex’s?

Jack: No.

Marion: Really? I didn’t know that about you.

Jack: When it was over, it was over.

Marion: So if we broke up, you would not like to see me ever again?

Jack: No, if I ran into you, I wouldn’t avoid you. But I wouldn’t go out of my way to hang out with you. No.

Marion: So that means, you don’t think I’m a likeable person outside of our relationship?

Jack: Yea, basically.

Marion: That’s interesting, but you know I like you. I would like to be your friend when we break up, whenever we break up, if we break up…. I would like you even if we were not together…

It says so much about someone when they won't be friends with their exes. Of course there are reasons that are legitimate behind break-ups - but still there ought to be a crumb of love left - enough that you still can be there for them in an emergency. Otherwise, what kind of foundation was your relationship built on ?

And blow jobs DO mean something. I think it is a loving act - and when a man or woman trivializes it, again, it says something about their emotional availability and willingness to connect/be intimate.
