Hannah and Her Sisters
written by Woody Allen
Elliot: God, she's beautiful. She's got the prettiest eyes, and she looks so sexy in that sweater. I just want to be alone with her and hold her and kiss her and tell her how much I love her and take care of her. Stop it, you idiot. She's your wife's sister. But I can't help it! I'm consumed by her. It's been months now. I dream about her. I, I, I think about her at the office. Oh, Lee. What am I gonna do? I hear myself mooning over you, and it's disgusting. Before, when she squeezed past me in the doorway, and I smelled that perfume on the back of her neck Jesus, I, I thought I was gonna swoon! (annoyed with himself) Easy, you're a dignified financial advisor. It doesn't look good for you to swoon.
Kudos and much thanks go to Jonah for this monologue, it is very much appreciated.
