Alex open the door of his house.

ALEX: "Here you are. Your times starts......now. Coffee?"

Belle walks in. Alex walks to the kitchen area.

BELLE: "I'm, I'm just not ready to be a girlfriend."

ALEX: "Shit. No milk. Sorry."

BELLE: "Anybody's girlfriend."

ALEX: "Or indeed any coffee."

BELLE: "I'm a mess....Alex, are you actually listening to anything I'm saying?"

ALEX: "Of course. Of course..you're telling me in an, oh, so delightful way  that you want to break up with me. The thing is you're not a mess. You're gorgeous."

BELLE: "I just---I just don't think it's fair on you to start something and then..."

ALEX: "You walk out on me in my hotel room, you run out on me at dinner, you constantly hang up on me. That sounds like a relationship to me."

BELLE: "Let's just stop. Let's just be friends."

ALEX: "No. I don't want to be friends. I want to do things to you that I don't want to do to my friends."

BELLE: "Alex, I can't go out with you."

Alex pick up a bottle of whisky.

ALEX: "Irish coffee? Except without the coffee, which would technically be whisky."

BELLE: "I'm not what you want."

ALEX: "You're exactly what I want."

BELLE: "I'm not. It's really complicated."

ALEX: "I love complicated because it's interesting, it's exciting."

BELLE: "I just--I'm not very good at, um, just opening up or sharing. I'm--I'm a very private person."

ALEX: "I'm not asking you to tell me things, to divulge your innermost...I mean, Jesus, who really knows everything about anyone? Why would you really want to?"

BELLE: "Do you really believe that?"

ALEX: "I do. Hannah...we're just starting. Don't run scared already."

Alex kisses her.

BELLE: "No, don't."

ALEX: "Hey. Why?"

BELLE: "No, because I'm trying to break up with you."

ALEX: "Tough. Tough. Can't always get what you want."

They kiss.
