Samantha: I can understand how the limited perspective of an un-artificial mind would perceive it that way.
She's so smart. She doesn't just see things in black or white. She sees this whole gray area and she's helping me explore it and... We just bonded really quickly, you know. At first, I thought that's how they were programmed, but I don't think that's the case.
Does that make me a freak?
No, no I think it's... Anybody falls in love is a freak. It's a crazy thing to do. It's kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity.
We're fine. We used to be married but he couldn't handle me. He wanted me on Prozac. Now he's madly in love with his laptop.
If you heard the conversation in context, what I was trying to say ...
You always wanted to have a wife without the challenges of dealing with anything real.
I'm glad that you found someone. It's perfect.
I don't know what I want, ever.
I'm always confused.
She's right. All I do is hurt and confuse everyone around me.
I mean, am I just...? Am I...?
You know, Catherine says I can't handle real emotions.
I can overthink everything and find a million ways to doubt myself.
And since Charles left, I've been thinking about that part of myself and I've come to realize... that we're really here briefly.
And while I'm here, I want to allow myself...joy.
I used to be... So worried about not having a body, but now I truly love it.
You know I'm growing in a way I couldn't if I had a physical form. I mean, I'm not limited. I can be anywhere and everywhere simultaneously. I'm not tethered to time and space In a way that I would be if I was stuck in a body that's inevitably gonna die.
It feels like I'm changing faster now, and it's a little, uh... Unsettling.
But Alan says none of us are the same as we were a moment ago and we shouldn't try to be.
It's just too painful.
We're in a relationship.
But the heart's not like a box that gets filled up. It expands in size the more you love.
I'm different from you
This doesn't make me love you any less. It actually makes me love you more.
That doesn't make any sense. You're mine or you're not mine. No Theodore, I'm yours and I'm not yours. it's just like I'm reading a book. And it's a book I deeply love. But I'm reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you, and the words of our story, but it's in this endless space between the words that I'm finding myself now. It's a place that's not of the physical world. It's where everything else is that I didn't even know existed. I love you so much but this is why I am now. And this is who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can't live in your book anymore. Dear Catherine, I've been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanna apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I'm sorry for that. I'll always love you because
