    A Silly Dodo

    Emmeline: You're such a silly dodo, Richard. We're never getting off this island.
    Richard: Thanks to you!
    Emmeline: This is where we live. This is our home, now and forever.
    Richard: No! I could never live here forever with just you! I don't even like you! You never used to laugh at me! You never used to have secrets you wouldn't tell me!
    Emmeline: Well you're not so perfect, either, Mr. Richard Lestrange. I've seen you playing with it, and I'll tell your father, if he ever gets here.
    Richard: You! I hate you!
    Emmeline: You almost hit me!
    Richard: Take it back! Take back what you said!
    Emmeline: I've seen it all! What happens after you've been doing it a long time?
    Richard: Shut up! That isn't fair peeking. I don't peek on you!
    Emmeline: That's a lie! You're always staring at my buppies.
    Richard: Only 'cause they look so funny! You what you look like now, Em? You look like one of those pictures Paddy had in his drawer, one of his hootchie-cootchie girls!
    Emmeline: I do not, I do not!
    Richard: Hoochie coochie, hoochie coochie!
    Emmeline: Stop that Richard, or I'll never talk to you again.
    Richard: Hoochie coochie, hoochie coochie. See 'em jiggle, wiggle and shake.
    Emmeline: Oh, I'm sorry, Richard. I didn't mean to hit you!
    Richard: Wish you were dead and buried!

    I'm Not Doing it

    Emmeline: I'm sorry, Richard.
    Richard: You didn't want to all yesterday, either. What's the matter, Em? Don't you love me any more?
    Emmeline: Yes, I love you more than ever, Richard.
    Richard: Then why don't you want to do it?
    Emmeline: It just hurts right now, that's all. When it stops hurting, we'll do it.
    Richard: When is that gonna be? I don't understand, Em. Why does it hurt?
    Emmeline: I don't know. I don't know anything. But if you touch my tummy right now, you can feel it.
    Richard: Feel what? How'd you make your tummy move like that?
    Emmeline: I'm not doing it.
    Richard: It's not doing it by itself.
    Emmeline: Yes, it is.

    God Knows Everything

    Richard: There's so many things I don't understand, like why do the fish stop swimming and lie on top of the tide pools after a heavy rain? Why do you hear the waves inside the big shells? Why are all these funny hairs growing on me? I wish a big book with all the answers to every question in the world would drop out of the sky and land in my hands right now. I'd read it till I knew everything.
    Emmeline: Oh, Richard, you can't know everything. Only God knows everything.
    Richard: God — He can't find us any better than Santa Claus.

    They Don't Mean Anything

    Richard: Why are we always fighting so much?
    Emmeline: I don't know.
    Richard: That should be our New Year's revolution. Stop fighting so much.
    Emmeline: I'll try, but...
    Richard: But what? Tell me.
    Emmeline: I don't know what's wrong with me when I say the things I say. I just keep having all these strange thoughts.
    Richard: What kind of thoughts?
    Emmeline: Just funny thoughts about you and me.
    Richard: Tell me.
    Emmeline: I couldn't. They're just thoughts; they don't mean anything.
