Bob Roberts

I went with a date, and I can only assume she picked this movie? At age 20 I was not very political, and I did not get any of the Beltway jokes. (At the old Janus cinema, on JFK Street, Harvard Square)

Steve [in a phonebooth at a club]: Linda, uh, it's me. I had to call you. It's about midnight. I was just having many beers. And, uh, I just wanted to say what I should have said at the dock. I f---ing chickened out when I acted casual, like Mr. Casual. I should have said it. You... belong... with... ME! We belong together. And what really pisses me off is that, now that we're really talking, you thought I proposed to you only because you were pregnant. What's that about?! I mean... [aside] hey, this is not the bathroom! And you know maybe if I had said some of these things at the dock it would have made a difference because, but I think we made a big mistake because, we had good times and we had bad times, but we had times. And I would like to start over. I would like to be new to you. I want to be new to you. I want to be Mr. New. So call me back if you want to. But this is the last time I'll call. And, if you really needed to know how I feel, how I really feel, that's how I feel. I love you. And that's something you should know, so I won't bother you again. So, good night. And good bye. And call me back. Good bye.[answering machine eats tape]
