Break-up Lines with Jack & Diane


Erica: I'm like the dumb girl that doesn't get it. I've never been the dumb girl before. It ain't great.
Harry: Let's just calm down. I had these plans before I even met you. I mean, I do like Sandy (other woman). I do.
Erica: [scoff] Yeah.
Harry: I'm always surprised by it.
Erica: Surprised by it? What was I thinking?
Harry: I have never lied to you. I have always told you some version of the truth.
Erica: The truth doesn't have versions, okay?
Harry: Will you cut me a little slack? My life has just been turned upside down.
Erica: Mine too!
Harry: Well, then let's just each get our bearings.
Erica: I don't want my bearings. I've had my bearings my whole goddamn life. I feel something with you I never really knew existed. Do you know what that's like, after a 20-year marriage to feel something for another person that is so...? That... Oh, Right. Right. Not your problem. God. Do you know that I've written this, but I never really got it? Do you know what this is?
Harry: No.
Erica: [Erica kisses Harry] This is heartbroken. How's that for impervious.
Harry: You're killing me.
Erica: I just wish that it had lasted more than a week.
Harry: Me too.
Erica: That is a terrible thing to say. You know, the life I had before you I knew how to do that. I could do that forever. But now look at me. What am I gonna do? What am I gonna do with all this?
Harry: Erica. Can you wait just a second? The truth is, I... I just... I don't know how to be a boyfriend.
Erica: That's what you have to say after all of this? That you don't know how to be a boyfriend?
Harry: That's not a small thing.
Erica: [shakes head] Are we done?
Harry: I don't know.
Erica: Oh, my God.

[Erica gets in taxi and drives away]

Harry: [grabbing his heart] Oh, my God.
