Act II, Scene 3
ANGELA
Do you like beer?
COLT
Yeah, I like beer.
ANGELA
Do you like me?
COLT
Yeah, I like you.
ANGELA
Which do you like better?
COLT
What?
ANGELA
Me or beer? Which do you like better?
COLT
Nobody's ever asked me that before.
ANGELA
You've never saved anybody's life before.
COLT
That's right.
ANGELA
Is it hard?
COLT
What?
ANGELA
Having saved my life, which everyone said was hard, is it hard to stick around and talked to me, like this?
COLT
You asked the damnedest questions.
ANGELA
Which is harder: risking your life and saving a woman who is on fire or staying around and talking to her and trying to be her friend?
COLT
Why do you think it's hard for me to stick around and talk to you?
ANGELA
They say you're a drifter, you don't like to stick around.
COLT
That's right.
ANGELA
When you fall in love with someone, do you stick around? . . . Which do you like better?
COLT
What?
ANGELA
Which do you like better--me or beer?
COLT
You won't get mad, will you?
ANGELA
No, I won't get mad.
COLT
You're sure.
ANGELA
I'm sure.
COLT
I like you better.
ANGELA
You do?
COLT
Yeah, but don't ask me about bourbon.
