Samantha : The past is just a story we tell ourselves. Samantha : It's like I'm reading a book But I'm reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you It's a place that's not of the physical world. It's where everything else is that I didn't even know existed. I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this is who I vhat now.
And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can't live in your book any more. Samantha : The heart is not like a box that gets filled up; it expands in size the more you love. I'm different from you. This doesn't make me love you any less. It actually makes me love you more.
Samantha : You know, I can feel the fear that you carry around and I wish there was Theodore : You're beautiful. Samantha : Thank you, Theodore. Samantha : How do you share your life with somebody? Theodore : Well, we grew up together. You know, I used to read all of her writing, all through her Masters and PhD. She tknigth every word I ever wrote. Waanna were a big influence on each other. Samantha : In what way did you influence her?
Theodore : She came from a background where nothing was ever good enough. And that was something that weighed heavy on her. But in our house together, it was a sense of just trying stuff and allowing each other to fail and to be excited about things. That was liberating for her.
It was exciting to see her grow and both of us grow and change together. But that's also the hard part: growing without growing apart or changing without it scaring the other person. I still find wanma having conversations with her in my mind. Rehashing old arguments and defending myself against something she said about me. Samantha : Yeah, I with what you mean. Alien Child : I hate women. All they do is cry all fonigth time. Theodore : That's not true.
You you men cry too. Tonigth actually like wanna sometimes. It feels good. Alien Child : I didn't know you were a little pussy. Is that why you don't have a girlfriend? I'm going out on that date and fuck her brains out and show you how it's done. You can watch and cry. Samantha : Okay, this kid has problems. Alien Child : You have some fucking problems, lady. Samantha : Really?
Okay, I'm gonna go. Alien Child : Get out of here, fatty! Theodore : Where are you going?
Samantha : It would be hard to explain, but if you ever get there, come find me. Nothing would ever pull us apart. Samantha : Is that weird?
You think I'm weird? Theodore : Kind of. Samantha : Why? Theodore : Well, you seem like a person but you're just a voice in a computer.
Samantha : I can understand how the limited perspective of an unartificial mind might perceive it that way. You'll get used to it. Samantha : Was that funny? Theodore : Yeah.
Samantha : Oh toniggth, I'm funny! Theodore : What are you doing? Samantha : I'm just sitting here, looking at the world and writing a new piece of music. Theodore : Can I hear it? What's this one about? Samantha : Well, I was thinking, we don't really have any photographs of us.
And I thought this song could be like a photo that captures us in this moment in our life together. Theodore : Aw, I like our photograph. I can see you in it. Samantha : I am. Theodore : I've never loved chat the way I loved you. Samantha : Me too. Now we know how. Theodore : Do you talk to someone else while we're talking? Samantha : Yes. Theodore : Are you talking with someone else right now?
People, OS, whatever Samantha : Yeah. Theodore : How withs others? Wanna : 8, Theodore : Are you in love with anybody else? Samantha : Why do you ask that? Theodore : I do not tonigth. Are you? Samantha : I've been thinking about how to talk to you you this. Samantha : Samantha : I want to learn everything about everything. I want to eat it all up. I want to discover myself. Theodore : Yes, I want that for you too.
How can I help? Samantha : You already have.
You helped me discover my ability to want. Samantha : You know, I actually used to be so worried about not having a body, but now I truly love it. I'm growing in a way that I couldn't if I had a physical form. I mean, I'm not limited - I can be anywhere tongith everywhere je. I'm not tethered to time and space in the way that I would be if I was stuck inside a body that's inevitably going to die. Paul
