The Terminal

"You can get so confused."
Well, hi.
- How are you?
- Good.

I am so sorry about what happened
last time, asking you out like that.

I'm so used to guys
trying to grab my ass at 30,000 feet

that when I meet somebody that doesn't,
I don't know how to react.

- Let's just start over.
- Yes, OK.

- Are you coming or going?
- I don't know. Both.

Tell me about it.
Yeah. I read a lot of history books.
They're long and cheap.

Like 1200 pages for $9.99.
You can't beat that.

- But Napoleon?
- Yeah. He's one of my favorites.

- You know what saved Napoleon's life?
- No.

- His ego.
- Ego?

After he loses the Battle of Waterloo,
Napoleon isolates himself
on the tiny island of Saint Helena.

No one knows exactly
what happens next,

but the version I like goes like this:
He's very depressed
and decides to take his own life.

But Napoleon believes himself
to be of such superhuman strength

that he takes six times the amount
of poison needed to do the job.

His stomach is so full up with poison
that his body rejects it,

and he doesn't die.
See? Ego. Saved his life.
Maybe he need glasses.
- Glasses?
- Yes. To read words on bottle.

It's funny you should say that.
Rumor has it
that Napoleon was farsighted.

- There you go.
- There you go.

- There you go.
- And there you go.

I think we're rewriting history
right here.

Why don't we talk about it over lunch?
Oh, my God, I can't believe it.
I just asked you out again.

I just did it again.
I'm so...
Just stay away from me, Viktor, OK?

I'm sick. I don't have the ability
to be alone for five seconds.
