    • Chuck: Sarah, do you love me? (Long pause. Sarah says nothing.) Wow. I'm a... I'm in my underwear. I'm sitting in my underwear holding a plastic guitar. There is a very good chance I'm making a complete fool of myself, isn't there?
      Sarah: Yes.
      Chuck: I should probably put some pants on.
      Sarah: No, Chuck. (Pause) Yes.
