【选段台词】

A Guy:Luisa, wa-wait, c'mon, c'mon, I'm telling you,I'm telling ya baby, you can't leave me. It's a...you know, it's a past life thing or a future life thing,but ya know, it's you and me...

Luisa:Look. For the last hour, all I could think about wasthrowing you off your balcony.

A Guy:I mean, who the hell do you think you are?You write a bullshit column for a fuckin' rag.

Luisa:Elevator!Thank you.Nice to know the age of chivalry isn't dead.

(Elevator stopped.)

Luisa:You okay?

Rufus:No bones broken, I think.

Luisa:Wait, wait. No, no. You sit... you sit, you sit. Let me see.Great. Power outage.Perfect end to a perfect day.

Rufus:Still glad the age of chivalry isn't dead?

Luisa:I still rather be right here than back up there.

Rufus:Guess Mr. Ganga isn't everyone's cup of tea.

Luisa:Guys like that are just an occupational hazard.

Rufus:You were interviewing him?

Luisa:Yeah, for Spyglass Magazine.Luisa Rey.

Rufus:Rufus Sixsmith.Rey...You wouldn't happen to be relatedto the journalist, Lester Rey?

Luisa:Yeah. He was my father.

Rufus:Really? He must have been enormously proud of you,following in his footsteps.

Luisa:Hmm.

Rufus:That's her, my niece, Megan.

Luisa:She's lovely.

Rufus:Born physicist, with a better mind for mathematicsthan I ever had.Did her PhD at cambridge, a woman at Caius.Gives you hope forthe world.

Luisa:It's hot.And we're still here.

Rufus:That's a very peculiar birthmark.

Luisa:Yeah, my little comet.My mother swore it was cancer.She wanted me to get it removed, butI don't know, I kinda like it.

Rufus:I knew someone who had a birthmark that wassimilar to that.

Luisa:Really?Who was it?

Rufus:Someone I cared about very much.A, uh... A hypothetical question for you, Miss Rey.As a journalist,what price would you pay to protect a source?

Luisa:Any.

Rufus:Prison?

Luisa:If it came to that... yes.

Rufus:Would you be prepared tocompromise your safety?

Luisa:My father braved booby-trapped marshes andthe wrath of generals for his journalistic integrity.What kind of daughter would I be if I bailed when things got a little tough?

Rufus:Saved.

Rufus:Taxi!You sure you don't need a cab?

Luisa:No, I've got my car.Well, you know, if... there's ever something I can do for you,please give me a call.

Rufus:Thank you, I will.

Luisa:Bye.
