    I am looking for the correct words….

    Dianne said something like “I’d never fall for any of your lines” then turned to walk away.

    Sam said “Wait, the colour of your eyes. I’ve never seen that colour”! No I’m wrong On a ski slope s(somewhere) we were coming back from a day of skiing and the setting sun….

    I thing you might get the picture there. Of course Diane crumbles.

    Love to have that piece of script.

    • Steven Miller says:

      Sam: Well I guess I’ve, uh, I’ve never looked at your eyes.
      Diane: Is something wrong with them?
      Sam: No, I uh, I just don’t think I’ve ever seen eyes that color before. Matter of fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen that color before. Yes I have, yes I have.
      Diane: Where?
      Sam: I was uh, I was on a ski weekend, up at Stowe. I uh, was coming in late one day – uh, last person off the slope – the sun had just gone down. And the sky became this incredible color. I usually don’t uh, notice things like that, and I found myself kind of walking around in the cold, hoping that it wouldn’t change; wishing that I had someone there to share it with me. Afterwards I tried to convince myself I had imagined that color; that I hadn’t really seen it. Nothing on this earth could be this beautiful. Now I see I was wrong. [Pause] Wouldn’t work, huh?
      Diane: What?
      Sam: Intelligent women would see right through that.
      Diane: Oh…oh! In a minute!
