-What about my ankles, do you like them?

Yes.

-And my thighs too?

Also.

-Do you think they're pretty?

Very.

-Do you like my face too?

Yes, I love your face.

-Do you think I have a pretty backside?

Very pretty.

-What about my ankles, do you like them?

Yes, enormously.

-You like all of me, my mouth, my eyes, my nose, my ears?

-Me too, Paul.

    General Commentit's a scene from jean-luc godard's 1963 movie contempt. it originally takes place between a man and a woman. the woman is inquiring. it's a scene my girlfriend loves.

    General CommentThe last song on this album, "Deaf Kids," also has a nod to the film CONTEMPT. The album and film both end with the same sound clip of someone saying "Silencio" into a loudspeaker. (I had to leave that little tidbit here, because "Deaf Kids" has no other lyrics to speak of, and therefore no entry!)
