HANNAH: This is where you wanna take me? The front porch.
BRIGHT: Do you remember what happened here? You tried to kiss me. About right here.
HANNAH: Yeah, right, thanks for reminding me of the most embarrassing moment of my entire life, ‘til right now that is.
BRIGHT: But, that’s the point. See, you’ve got everybody fooled Hannah. I mean you pretend to be all shy and intro… what’s that word?
HANNAH: Introspective? Introverted?
BRIGHT: Right, those. You act like somebody who doesn’t take chances, but that’s not true. See, I saw that other side of you. Y’know I was here, you leaned in and tried to kiss me. You didn’t think about it, you just did what you wanted to do and for a brief second, you saw it.
HANNAH: Saw what?
BRIGHT: A future. Or, you know, the possibility of one. You know, and then, damn.. you call me on my crap, which honestly, no girl has ever done before, which means you’re way stronger and cooler than you think, which means you can’t let this thing, this “not knowing” thing stop you from living your life, because god Hannah, your life is gonna rock.
HANNAH: You think so?
BRIGHT: Yeah! Hell yeah! And this Topher thing? I don’t know, go out with him, don’t go out with him, but live your life out because you never know, you know? I mean, none of us know how long we’re gonna be here. My friend Colin sure as hell didn’t. I think about it every single day, at least I try to. You gotta treat every moment like it’s..
HANNAH: Like a gift?
BRIGHT: Yeah. Yeah.. you can’t give it up and you can’t get it back because Hannah you are too good for that. Okay?
BRIGHT: Oh, and uh, one more thing. Don’t ever say that it’s unlikely someone’s gonna fall in love with you because they will. They will. They will see all the things I see and more, and I don’t know, unlike me they’ll actually deserve you.
