[B:] "Bartender, I'd like a Manhattan, please." [T:] Um, stop me if you've heard this one, but I feel as though we've met before. Perhaps I am mistaken. [B:] But it's just that I remind you of someone you used to care about. Oh, but that was long ago. Now tell me, do you really think I'd fall for that old line? I was not born just yesterday. Besides, I never talk to strangers anyway. [T:] Hell, I ain't such a bad guy once you get to know me. Just thought there ain't no harm. [B:] Hey-e-yeh, just try minding your own business, bud. Who asked you to annoy me with your sad, sad repartee? Besides, I never talk to strangers anyway. Your life's a dime store novel. This town is full of guys like you. And you're looking for someone to take the place of her. [T:] You must be reading my mail. 'N' you're bitter 'cause he left you. That's why you're drinkin' in this bar. [B&T:] Well, only suckers fall in love with perfect strangers. [B:] It always takes one to know one, stranger. [T:] Maybe we're just wiser now. [B:] Yeah, 'n' been around the block so many times [T:] that we don't notice [B&T:] that we're all just perfect strangers as long as we ignore that we all begin as strangers just before we find we really aren't strangers anymore. [B:] "Aw, you don't look like such a chump." [T:] "Aw, hey babe."
