JAMES: “Why would I want to do it another night? You’ve been...embarrassed to be here ever since we arrived. I didn’t force you to come to this date. I asked you on a date. (laughs) Wow! (Clears throat)You know... I know I’m not that much of a catch. I know I’m a dwarf who sells used cars and has a drinking problem. I know that. But who the hell are you, man? You’re that billboard lady who never smiles, never has a good word to say about anybody, and who, in the evening times (loudly) sets fucking fire to police stations! (normal voice) And I’m the one who’s not a catch? You know, I didn’t have to come and hold your ladder.”
