An old scenario

On February 13, 2002 by Eden M. Kennedy

Jack: Do you want to watch Howard’s End?

Me: Howard Zinn?

Jack: Yeah.

Me: There’s a movie of him?

Jack: Yeah — we bought it last year, remember?

Me: No.

Jack: We bought it in Palm Springs at that used place.

Me: Really?

Jack: Yes, really.

Me: Howard Zinn?

Jack: Yes.

Me: Is it a documentary?

Jack: No. It’s fucking Merchant-Ivory. What are you, high?

Me: I’m so confused.

Jack: We bought it with that butler thing with Anthony Hopkins.

Me: Remains of the Day?

Jack: Right.

Me: OH, Howard’s End!

Jack: What the fuck have we been talking about?
