    • Dr. Tom: (talking to Erica and Alexis as a volunteer case studies subjects for the sex book) Well, uh... there is a woman. Uh, not my partner. And to be honest, I find this woman to be infuriating, you know? Brash, she's headstrong ... But, I don't know, deep inside she's like this... melody that keeps playing in the back of my mind.

      Erica: You can tune out a melody.

      Dr. Tom: Oh, I've tried that. It's not so easily done. Uh, ear worms, I think you call them. You know those songs you get in your head and you just can't get rid of them?

      Alexis: Oh my goodness, that happens to me all the time. Mostly the gypsy kings.

      Erica: You can distract yourself, you can turn the music up really loud... do everything it takes to avoid seeing... (stops)  to avoid seeing what's right in front of you. Like with Leo.

      Alexis: (curiously) Who's Leo?

      Erica: My brother. He betrayed me and... and I didn't want to see it.

      Dr. Tom: He was a great brother. But he also hadsome serious flaws.

      Alexis: (confused) I'm sorry,do you two know each other?

      Dr. Tom: It's so much easier to live in denial. We do it to protect ourselves from the things that we don't want to acknowledge.

      Erica: But if we do that, then we're just living a lie. No matter whatwe tell ourselves.
