Wha-What is going on here? What are you doing? I-I had this wonderful idea. I needed some light. I needed to let in some light! Richard, what are you doing? I had this fantastic notion. I took the Xanax and the Ritalin together. It-it never occurred to me. Richard... Don't come near me! It seemed to me I needed to let in some light. What do you think? I cleared away all the windows. All right, Richard, do me one simple favor. Come. Come sit. I don't think I can make it to the party, Clarissa. You don't have to go to the party. You don't have to go to the ceremony. You don't have to do anything you don't want to do. You can do as you like. But I still have to face the hours, don't I? I mean, the hours after the party, and the hours after that... You do have good days still. You know you do. Not really. I mean, it's kind of you to say so, but it's... not really true. Are they here? Who? The voices. Oh, the voices are always here. And it's the voices that you're No, no, no, no. Mrs. Dalloway, it's you. I've stayed alive for you, but now you have to let me go. Richard, I... No, wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait. Tell me a story. What about? Tell me a story from your day. I, um... I-I got up... Yes? ...and I went out, and, uh, I went to buy flowers, Like Mrs. Dalloway, in the book, you know? And it was a beautiful morning. Was it? Yes, it was so beautiful. It was so fresh. Oh, fresh, was it? Yes. Like a... like a morning on the beach? ( gasps ): Yes. Like that? Yes. Like that morning when you walked out of that old house, and you were, you were 18, and maybe I was 19. ( sighs ): Yes. I was 19 years old, and I'd never seen anything so beautiful. You... coming out of a glass door in the early morning, still sleepy. Isn't it strange? Most ordinary morning in anybody's life. I'm afraid I can't make it to the party, Clarissa. ( gasps ): The party... doesn't matter. You've been so good to me, I love you. "I don't think two people could've been happier than we've been."
