From BABE, INC.:

Oh, so now you're in a hurry to put me back on the shelf with all the other empty-headed, plastic dolls?
That's your description, not mine.
But that's how you think of me, isn't it?
Of course it is. Because that's what you are, aren't you? Because if you're not; if you're not a big plastic,pre-programmed robotic doll, then you're a, a, a...Look, I'm going to stop right here, right now. The alternative
is simply too dreadful to consider.
What? What's too dreadful to consider?
Oh, my God! At my mother's funeral.
Those were real tears I shed.
Real? Real tears? How phony can you get?



Nah, nah, I know what you really think, Amy. But the truth is I got my life too and it’s not based on two people or four people or whatever, it’s based on how to keep one guy afloat, one guy in the singular. You think
that’s easy? You think that’s automatic?
Not for everyone it isn’t. So, it doesn’t
really matter to me how this all happened.
Whether it was a stupid mistake or an evil
trick...whether it was me or some other
poor sucker who got caught with his fucking
pants down ’cause I know what’s involved.. I’ve seen other guys go down this road and there’s no end to the road. It’s an endless
road. That’s why I’m telling you right now,
I don’t want my life turned around. I don’t
need my life turned around. It’s taken a
little time but I like my life the way it
is. If I didn’t, I’d do something different. And you know what, Amy, I don’t
want to do something different. Nothing.
Nada, as you like to say.
