"I think I really wanted to prove something to myself, but at the same time, I’m very sensitive. When you see those action movies and it’s like the back of somebody’s head and then all of a sudden they give that one pose at the end and you’re like, "That was not…That was the lamest thing." You want to see the actor risking their life. It’s part of what sells it, I think, as an audience member, and, like I said, I’m sensitive about that sort of thing. So I would want to… I never would want to be that. I wouldn’t want to be perceived as a wuss who couldn’t do it, I guess. " - Scarlett Johansson

I was leaning towards ‘princess’ but I think doll fits you better. [Chews on her bottom lip in thought] Bet you used both those all the time. What else? [She bites back a laugh] Dame. [Imitates him] Yeah, Steve, I’m gonna go round us up a coupla dames and I’ll meet ya back here for a rip-roaring good time.

[Peeks up at him from where she’s laying] You don’t have a choice, doll.

Oh, good to know. That gonna’ be in your vows? ‘Not useless’?

You know, that’s not half bad. [Falls back onto the couch dramatically, hand draped across her forehead] Darling, James. Love of my life, wind beneath my wings and fire of my loins. I love you desperately. I love you dearly. And you’re not completely useless. Especially in the sack.

You’re hilarious [rolls his eyes]. I’m plenty handy.

Well, you’re not useless or anything.

Hmm, dusting sounds like a chore— [smirks a little, teasing] —let’s just buy the cottage.

You’re ridiculous, you know that? [There’s a pause] I bet we could get a really good deal on a fixer-upper. [Nudges his side] Not that you’re handy or anything. I know I’ll have to do the heavy lifting. 

She scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out.

Do you wanna’ at least get away from the Tower a few days? We still got the apartment, right?

Yeah. I mean, it could probably use some serious dusting but all our furniture and stuff is still there.

[laughs softly] I have actually. Little more so lately.

It’s starting to look like a really good idea again.
