Erica: You know what I did yesterday? I threw out a whole new jar of blackberry jam. Martin loved blackberry jam. I think the problem was that I didn’t do things as myself, you know? I did things as this Martin & Erica, Martin & Erica. It wasn’t his fault. I liked it.
Saul: Saul & Erica will be different from Martin & Erica.
Erica: You wanna see other women?
Saul: I want you.
Erica: You’re free to.
Saul: I don’t want to.
Erica: Then don’t.
Saul: Do you want to see other men?
Erica: Not today.
Saul: I’m getting a headache.

Rupert: Gudrun Brangwen. Gerald Crich. Tibby and Laura Lupton. Ursula Brangwen. Rupert Birkin. What peculiar names we all have. Do you think we’ve been singled out. . .chosen for some extraordinary moment in life or are we all cursed with the mark of Cain?
Ursula: I’m afraid Ursula was a martyred saint. It’s been rather difficult to live up to.
Gerald: And who is Gudrun?
Gudrun: In Norse myth, Gudrun was a sinner who murdered her husband.
Gerald: Will you live up to that?
Gudrun: Which would you prefer me to live up to, the sinner or the murderer?
