variation on a theme: what's on your mind by L|T
(also courtesy of GM, who did a great favor by making me read RC)
What's on your mind?
What do you mean?
I mean, what's on your mind?
You mean, what's on my mind?
That's what I just said.
(shrug) I don't know. Nothing.
What do you mean nothing? There must be something!
Well, there's nothing.
There's always something.
Don't be a jerk.
I'm not. I'm just telling you, there's nothing on my mind.
It's true! Why won't you believe me when I tell you the truth? You never believe me when I tell you the truth.
What, meaning there are times when you didn't?
Tell me the truth.
That you lie to me.
What? What are you talking about?
Lies. You lie to me.
What lies? I'm tired. Let's just go to bed.
No, I need you to tell me the truth. Are you messing around?
What are you talking about?
Messing around. Have you been messing around?
