with some people, but...

nothing really stuck.

So you didn't feel jealous

or anything like that?

- No.

- That's amazing.

No, no, no.

She was really amazing.

She was great,

and she was great for him.

So this is something like

you guys would talk about.


Because it's sort of

totally what I'm looking for.

Oh, yeah?

No. I mean, not like that.

I mean, it sounds

interesting to me, maybe,

but just more

in terms of the film.

Like that's why I would like

to interview you on camera

and have you explain

your experience

with an open relationship.

If you'd be into that.

Sure, Dan.

All right. Let me try

and explain this to you.

I feel like

you're not getting it.

- Really?

- Yeah.

- I'm trying.

- I know.

It's like I'm here with you

right now, right?

But I'm not totally present

with you

because I feel very drawn

to that person over there.

- The guy with the book?

- Yeah.

- Really?

- Yeah.

He's your type?

Wait. Are you being serious?

Because it's not

a reality to me.

I invent some fantasy

in my mind

and follow my impulse

and see what's drawing me.

What, you mean you

really wanna do that?

Or are you making

like an example?

- Hi.

- Hey.

- How are you?

- I'm good.

- Good. I'm John.

- Theresa.

It was nice to have met you.

Thanks, John.

What the hell was that?

So that was totally not

what I thought it was gonna be.

What was it?

But now I can just, you know,

I can just let it go,

and I can be here with you.

Totally and completely.

- Wow.

- Right?

Actually, that might be a little

too much for me at the moment.

But okay.


- Hi.

- Mmm.

- How are you?

- Good.

- Are you tired?

- Mm-hmm.

- Already?

- Yeah.

- It's so early though.

- Not that early.

- Okay.

- What?

Um, do you wanna stay
