Elle: (hearing a chirping bird and looking up) Is that an oriole?
Gideon: No. A black-headed grosbeak.

Gideon: Grosbeak, too. Female. Huh (smiling at the two birds). Orson Welles said all the birds that belong to our sex have prettier feathers 'cause males have got to try to justify their existence. We spend all our time screaming, "look at me. Look at me."
