short quotes

A: Dang it – I thought you were someone else.  Why do you always look at people as if you grew up with them or something?  Don’t you think it is misleading?

Don’t you think that it is a little peculiar that you look at people at all?  Why not keep your eyes on yourself?

B: I’ve tried but you’re more interesting.  How do you live with yourself?  How do you live with the self-conscious preoccupations?

A:  You’re the one staring at me like a long lost puppy – really – do you mind?
