FRANCIS: "H-hold on a sec, ok? J-Just stop and give me a minute here. And look at this maleness. How could you possibly think I am gay?"
RENEE: "Because you don't look at me anymore, let alone touch me."
FRANCIS: "How many times do I have to remind you?"
RENEE: "If you mention that goddamned down cycle one more time, I swear to God, I will cut that maleness right off, ok? It's just not natural for you to not want to have sex with your wife. At least once in the last three months!"
FRANCIS: "Whoa, whoa. Why is it my fault?! Maybe it's your fault! Did you ever think about that?"
RENEE: "Excuse me?! How could this be my fault, huh? I went out there, and I bought all that lingerie crap and you didn't even look at me!"
FRANCIS: "Was I not working that night? I'm sorry. Do you remember this at all?"
RENEE: "Maybe....maybe you got a problem or something. I mean do you think you're impotent?"
FRANCIS: "What? No."
RENEE: "Well, maybe...maybe you caught some, like, disease or something."
FRANCIS: "Oh, yeah. That's it babe. Syphilis."
RENEE: "Ok, Francis, look. Honey, if you're a homosexual, you can tell me, ok? I will understand. I won't be mad. But you got to talk to me."
FRANCIS: "Listen, will you cut it out with the homosexual business? It's getting me all skeeved out every time you say it. Fine. You want to know what's wrong? I'll just come right out and say it."
RENEE: "Please! I would."
FRANCIS: (Pause) I'm in love with someone else. I want a divorce."
RENEE: "What? Since when?"
FRANCIS: "Just a few months."
RENEE: "Who is he?"
FRANCIS: "Enough with that...ok? It's a she. She's a woman. A beautiful, sophisticated and intelligent woman."
RENEE: "Hmph. What does make me?"
FRANCIS: "I'm sorry. I didn't mean it like that. It wasn't a comparison. Listen, don't cry."
RENEE: "I'm not crying....I'm leaving."
