always an exception to the rule. I don't know if this is the most beautiful song, Frankie and Johnny. I wish they really were your names but I know when my leg's being pulled. God, how I wish you two really existed. Maybe I'm crazy, but I'd still like to believe in love. Why the hell do you think I work these hours? Anyway, you two moonbeams, whoever, wherever you are, whatever you're doing, this one's for you.
JOHNNY: I am trying to improve my life and I'm running out of time.
FRANKIE: Find someone else who is double-parked like you
JOHNNY: It could happen. I could meet somebody tomorrow. Get laid, think I was in love.
FRANKIE: Don't let me stop you.
JOHNNY: You're not stopping me, I'm stopping me. I love you. But I'm so scared. So scared you are gonna retreat back. You know, that place you're so comfortable with, that place where nobody can find you. That's why I'm coming on so strong.
FRANKIE: I'm afraid to be alone, I'm afraid not to be alone. I'm afraid of what I am, what I'm not, what I might become, what I might never become. I don't wanna stay at my job for the rest of my life but I'm afraid to leave. And I'm just tired, you know, I'm just so tired of being afraid.
JOHNNY: Honey, listen. I know I can't make the bad go away. You're right, I can't. But when the bad comes again... I'm gonna be next to you.
FRANKIE: You want me to do it? You never went to the prom, did you?
JOHNNY: No. Did you?
FRANKIE: I wish you'd stop looking at me like that.
JOHNNY: Like what?
FRANKIE: Like that. It's too intense. You don't look, you stare. It makes me nervous.
JOHNNY: I think we should go to your place. I think so.
FRANKIE: I really like you but does it have to be tonight?
FRANKIE: Who says?
