Dry Mouthedness

This is from the movie White Men Can't Jump.
Gloria: Honey?

Gloria: My mouth is dry.

Gloria: Honey. I'm thirsty.

Billy: Umm...

*Water Runs*

Billy: There you go. honey.

Gloria: When I said I was thirsty it doesn't mean I want a glass of water.

Billy: It doesn't?

Gloria: You're missing the whole point of me saying I'm thirsty.

Gloria: If I have a problem you're not supposed to solve it.

Gloria: Men always make the mistake of thinking they can solve a woman's problem.

Gloria: It makes them feel omnipotent.

Billy: Omnipotent? Did you have a bad dream?

Gloria: It's a way of controlling a woman.

Billy: Bringing them a glass of water?

Gloria: Yes.

Gloria: I read it in a magazine.

Gloria: See. if I'm thirsty.

Gloria: I don't want a glass of water.

Gloria: I want you to sympathize.

Gloria: I want you to say, "Gloria I, too, know what it feels like to be thirsty. I too have had a dry mouth."

Gloria: I want you to connect with me through sharing and understanding the concept of dry mouthedness.



  2. 20 years later sideboob still distracts me completely from the dialog.

  3. I think I got the idea of the post, btw.

  4. It's a commentary about character rankings!

    I couldn't figure out a good wording for an intro that makes my case. But I plan to link to this post for Blanka Diagram.

  5. Then I hadn't got the idea of the post, LOL! Now I got it!
