meet me in montauk

'eternal sunshine of the spotless mind' is one of my all-time favorite movies, without a doubt. last week i had the great pleasure of watching it with a few of my friends, which just reinforced the fact that i am happily obsessed with this movie. here's just a few tid bits...

Joel: [in the house on the beach] I really should go! I've gotta catch my ride. 
Clementine: So go. 
Joel: I did. I thought maybe you were a nut... but you were exciting. 
Clementine: I wish you had stayed. 
Joel: I wish I had stayed too. NOW I wish I had stayed. I wish I had done a lot of things. I wish I had... I wish I had stayed. I do. 
Clementine: Well I came back downstairs and you were gone! 
Joel: I walked out, I walked out the door! 
Clementine: Why? 
Joel: I don't know. I felt like I was a scared little kid, I was like... it was above my head, I don't know. 
Clementine: You were scared? 
Joel: Yeah. I thought you knew that about me. I ran back to the bonfire, trying to outrun my humiliation.
Clementine: Was it something I said? 
Joel: Yeah, you said "so go." With such disdain, you know? 
Clementine: Oh, I'm sorry. 
Joel: It's okay. 
[Walking Out
Clementine: Joely? What if you stayed this time? 
Joel: I walked out the door. There's no memory left. 
Clementine: Come back and make up a good-bye at least. Let's pretend we had one. 
[Joel comes back
Clementine: Bye Joel. 
Joel: I love you... 
Clementine: Meet me... in Montauk... 

i found this song today thanks to my sweet friend hanna. i think you'll get the reference.

  1. How I adore that movie too, Mackenzie. It's still one of my all-time favorite roles for Jim Carrey. Sweet and real.

    Thanks so much for stopping by Austin Eavesdropper, woman! I drive to DFW all the time to visit my in-laws. We should split a kolache together at the Czech Stop in West sometime. :-)

  2. of course! or common grounds for some insanely good coffee.
