Happiness

INT. PSYCHIATRIST'S OFFICE - DAY.

BILL sits opposed his PSYCHIATRIST, to whom the VOICE belongs.

BILL
I don't kill myself at the end.

PSYCHIATRIST
Do you see this as something positive?

BILL
Gee, I don't know.

PSYCHIATRIST
How do you feel at the end?

BILL
Much better. I wake up happy.
Feeling good. But then I get very
depressed because I'm living in reality.

PSYCHIATRIST
And you wouldn't kill people
in real life.

BILL
No. I don't think so.

PSYCHIATRIST
You don't sound so certain.

BILL
I'm thinking about my patients.

PSYCHIATRIST
What about them?

BILL
My patients are ugly. Their problems
are trite. Each one thinks he is
unique. On a professional level they
bore me. On a personal level I have
no sympathy. They deserve what they get.

PSYCHIATRIST
And what about your family?

BILL
Trish is good to me.

PSYCHIATRIST
But still no sex?

BILL
No. But she's not too interested,
either. So really there's no problem
there, when you think about it,
on a certain level.


21. INT. BILL'S KITCHEN - EVENING. 21.


BILLY ENTERS, opens the refrigerator, pours himself a soda. He looks dejected.

BILL
Hey, Billy! What's going on?

BILLY
Nothing.

TRISH
He's
(making quotation marks
with her fingers)
"depressed."

BILL
Is something the matter?

BILLY
I don't wanna talk about it.

And he leaves for the TV room again.

TRISH
Ignore him. He's just doing it for
attention. He thinks you'll be
impressed. As if. So anyway
Joy came by today.

BILL
How's she doing?

TRISH
Oh, God, I dunno, and frankly
I'm concerned. I mean, she's not
like me. She doesn't "have it all."
She pretends to be happy, but
I can see right through her:
she's miserable.

BILL
Why do you think that is?

TRISH
To be frank, I think she's lazy.
She's not a go-getter, like me or
Helen. And she's so picky. I gave
Damien Ross her phone number, for
what it's worth, and Joy sounded
interested, naturally, but I dunno.
I'm afraid to have to say it, but
truly it's what I believe: she'll
always be alone.

BILL
We're all alone.

TRISH
Oh, Bill. Sometimes I wonder how any
of your patients can talk to you.

BILL
Sometimes I wonder if they'll ever
stop. I should tape some for you.

TRISH
Would you? Would you really?
So that I could listen, too?

BILL
No.

TRISH
You're such a tease.
You know I wouldn't tell anyone.

BILL
I know. 'Cause you're so secretive.

TRISH
Well, maybe not as secretive as you.

BILL
What secret would you like me to
tell you?

IRISH puts her arms around BILL.

TRISH
(whispers coyly)
Like how come no matter how much
you treat me like shit,
I can't help loving you even more?
