In Pain

(excerto do filme “Simple Men” de Hal Hartley)

«Just be quiet and go to sleep.
- I can't sleep.
- Why not?
I'm in pain.
- What?
- I got a broken heart, man.
- Bullshit.
- I do.
What happened?
I was set up.
Betrayed by the woman i love.
- Who, mom?
- No!
- Vera.
- Who's vera?
I don't want to talk about it.
- Suit yourself.
- You wanna see a picture of her?
- Wow, she's pretty.
- I would've done anything for her.
- Sorry.
- I just can't understand it.
- You'll get over it.
- No, dennis, i will not get over it.
- Yes, you will.
- Dennis, i love this woman.
- You've loved other women.
- Not like vera.
- Vera was special.
- Believe me, you'll get over it.
Yeah, you're right.
i'll get over it tomorrow.
- Now go to sleep.
- But i'm not gonna fall in love anymore.
- Fine.
- Women don't want you to love them.
the first good looking woman i see...
i'm not gonna fall in love with her.
That will show her.
Yeah. The first good looking
blond woman i see...
i'm going to make her
fall in love with me.
I'll do everything right.
Be a little aloof at first.
seem sort of thoughtful, deep.
But possibly a bit dangerous, too.
Flatter her in little ways
but be modest myself.
They all fall for that shit.
Make her fall hopelessly
in love with me.
Yep. Mysterious,
thoughtful, deep, but modest.
Then i'm going to fuck her.
But i'm not going
to care about her.
To me she's going to be
another piece of ass.
Somebody else's little girl
who i'm going to treat like dirt
and make her beg for it, too.
I'm just going to use her up.
Have my way with her.
Like a little toy,
a little plaything.
And when i'm done...
i'm just going to throw her away.  
Are you through?

I haven't even begun yet.
Go to sleep.
I can't sleep. I'm in pain.»

Tirado daqui. Este diálogo, na forma como o irmão mais velho diz “I’m in pain”, sempre me tocou profundamente. Para quem não viu o filme, ele acaba por conhecer uma mulher, que o acha misterioso e etc.

E apaixona-se por ela.
