John and Mary

Synopsis: It's the morning after John and Mary's first sexual encounter with each other, which took place in his New York City loft apartment. They had only met for the first time the previous evening at a crowded trendy pick-up bar. They are both uncomfortable with the situation but don't want to show that discomfort to the other. They both realize that they don't know anything substantial about the other - including not even knowing each other's name - as each tries through whatever secret means to find out with who he/she just slept. As they slowly find out more about the other, they inject their own perception into the information, which is sometimes not quite reality. Over the next few hours, they, together and individually, will try to determine if there is any potential future for them, which includes their thoughts about the current most significant other in their respective lives, one who is more significant than the other, and their feelings about what they think the other person is th

She doesn't work nights,

does she, huh?

50

00:
09:20,018 -- 00:09:23,249

[ Women Giggling ]

51

00:
09:26,058 -- 00:09:30,722

[ Man ] Whatever type of person

made that movie must be sick in the head.

52

00:
09:30,796 -- 00:09:34,823

Ten miles of traffic jams and human beings

eating each other in the bushes?

53

00:
09:34,900 -- 00:09:37,334

- He must be sick.

- Maybe we're sick. Does that occur to you?

54

00:
09:37,403 -- 00:09:39,530

No, it doesn't.

It doesn't occur to me at all.

55

00:
09:39,605 -- 00:09:41,664

- You blow your mind in traffic.

- All right.

56

00:
09:41,740 -- 00:09:44,504

So I blow my mind in traffic,

but I don't eat my girlfriend.

57

00:
09:44,576 -- 00:09:46,703

- I should be so lucky.

- You know what I mean.

58

00:
09:46,779 -- 00:09:49,577

I like a movie that has

a beginning, a middle and an end-

59

00:
09:49,648 -- 00:09:51,809

And in that order,

so that you can follow it.

60

00:
09:51,884 -- 00:09:54,375

- It's meant to be symbolic, Dean.

- Pardon me?

61

00:
09:54,453 -- 00:09:56,921

- I said it's meant to be symbolic.

- Symbolic.

62

00:
09:56,989 -- 00:09:59,389

That's right. That's exactly

what it was meant to be.

63

00:
09:59,458 -- 00:10:03,895

- I beg your pardon?

- I saw that movie at the film festival.

64

00:
10:03,962 -- 00:10:06,829

I thought it was totally symbolic

of our materialistic age.

65

00:
10:06,899 -- 00:10:09,891

Yeah. That's right.

That's exactly what it was.

66

00:
10:09,968 -- 00:10:12,198

- Thank you very much.

- You're welcome.

67

00:
10:12,271 -- 00:10:14,831

- Someone you know?

- No, we just happen to like the same movies.

68

00:
10:14,907 -- 00:10:17,569

- Can I buy you all a drink?

- Yes, you can.

69

00:
10:17,643 -- 00:10:19,736

- I'll take a double Chivas Regal.
