Claire Cleary
So you're a venture capitalist? What does that mean?
John Beckwith
Oh, it's really not that interesting, actually.
Claire Cleary
You don't sound very enthused.
John Beckwith
Well, no, it's just... You know, things start happening... and you go down a road and you think it's just for a little while. And then you get caught up in it and you get kind of into it... and just don't even have time to really ask questions about it. And before you know it, you're living a life that you didn't set out to or that you intended to. Do you know what I mean?
Claire Cleary
Yes, I do.
John Beckwith
I think that there's some great things that I'd like to do... that maybe I'm capable of, hopefully.
Claire Cleary
Oh, yeah? Like what?
John Beckwith
I don't know. We'll see. I'm still young.
Claire Cleary
Well... you're not that young. I'm sorry.
John Beckwith
Give me your hands.
Claire Cleary
I know this game. Okay.
John Beckwith
I'm not gonna bite you. Do you want full speed or half speed?
Claire Cleary
Full. Oh, ha, ha, wow.
John Beckwith
You're never gonna hit me, I don't think. I'm pretty quick.
Claire Cleary
What? You didn't approve of that?
John Beckwith
Let me get settled before you go. No, because you're supposed to... You gotta wait until I put them back. Come on. So, what about you, with Sack? Is that a good thing?
Claire Cleary
Yes, I think it's a good thing.
John Beckwith
You don't sound very enthused.
Claire Cleary
I am. Well, I mean, I think I am. I... I'm...
John Beckwith
Okay.
Claire Cleary
I... You know, we've just been talking so much about the future lately... and, uh, I mean, I always assumed that we would get married. But... I'm scared. I am. But I think that that's how everyone feels before they're about to get married. I mean, don't you think? Yeah, no. Don't answer that. That's my rationalization and I'm sticking to it.
John Beckwith
Fair enough. And I don't mean to pry.
Claire Cleary
Yes, you did.
John Beckwith
Well, however it works out, I hope you... Um... I hope you realize that you deserve somebody great.
