Jonah: Imagine you threw yourself from here, all right? Your, your wife leaves you, your stocks bottom out, Beatles break up.
Dakota: You know that already happened, right?
Jonah: Yeah, whatever. So, imagine you take it upon yourself to jump.
Jonah: On the way down, which way would you rather be facing?
Dakota: You're a weird guy.
Jonah: I get that. No, but really, I mean, would you rather be looking back up at the sky, no idea when the end is gonna hit? Or would you rather go face-first, aware of the moment when everything cuts to black, knowing that this second is your last?
Dakota: Yeah, just kick back and enjoy the ride.
Jonah: I'd want to see it coming. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'd want to see it coming.
out of my brain. But I can’t tell you that, that all I want right now in the world is to take you away with me. No him, no here, no this. Just us. If just for a day. You know? But I can’t tell you that. I mean, you can’t make me. I mean, what kind of a person would I be if I went and told you something like that?”
I still have the dream sometimes.
I do. I come home from the store
and find you on my doorstep
with a suitcase.
And not your entire wardrobe.
Just a carry-on, a duffel bag.
We don’t say anything,
but you have this look
in your eye that kills me.
And I unlock the door
and let you in.
And that’s it.
That’s the dream.
When I wake up, I wake up happy…
…vibrating for a few seconds
with my head in the sand…
Then it goes away, and you go away.
I really don’t want to get out of bed then
‘cause it’s cold out there,
but I do.
I get up.
Life goes on.
