Keeping the Faith

Just you. What do you need
to work it out?

Those things are me. Do you understand
that? I can't separate them out.

I mean, it might be hard for you
to accept, but the fact that you're
not Jewish is a real problem for me.

I don't think so.
Okay, okay, okay.
A-All I'm saying, Jake...

is I think you should be honest
with yourself.

Because I think if it
was just up to you...

you would stick with this and see
where this relationship is going...

but it's a problem for you because you
assume that all the people in your life
can't deal with that.

- No, they can't.
- Well, give them a little credit, Jake.

- It's the 21st century.
- "The 21st century"?

What the hell does the 21st century
have to do with anything?

This is you and me, right? I thought
we were supposed to be just having
a good time, keep it simple.

- Well, that's my point. I'm having fun.
- I'm having fun too.

This is a lot of fun.
Whoo! Fun!

Well, exactly.
So why throw it away?

Look, maybe you're right, but can't
you see that you're asking me...

to risk losing everything
that's important to me...

just to see if we work?
I mean, I love you,
but-- but-- but--

we're so different in so many ways that
have nothing to do with whether or not
you're Jewish.

- What are you saying?
- I'm saying we have
totally different priorities.

Look at your life.
I don't think there's room in it
for what I've spiritually committed to.

That is so unfair.
Your faith is a huge part
of what I love about you...

but you have to have some patience
for the fact...

that it doesn't come as easily
for most people as it does for you.

And you know what? You are never going
to find the kind of relationship
that I know you want...

and you are never going to be the kind
of spiritual leader that you could be...

until you learn to put
a little faith in other people.

I'm not saying,
"Let's get married."

All I'm saying is that I am
in love with you, and I want
to give it a real shot.
