So… It’s a nice feeling then? Being in love? And do you think… Do you think it’d make a difference if you told someone to their face…? [Matilda sighed] No… No I’m not in trouble. I’m just broke. And winning could change everything for me.
Love is a nice feeling I guess. Loving people is cool. Being in love…is crazy and literally makes people go crazy but it’s worth it. The getting your heart stomped on part isn’t as great though. Which is why I get why people hesitate with all of that. I think it definitely makes a difference once they know. Because then they know they’ve got some kind of effect on your feelings. [Poppy nodded slowly.] So don’t give up. I know you can make it far, you’re pretty kickass. But on the off chance you don’t at least you have your job right? At least you’re actually starting to help yourself on your own.
You hear it’s a nice feeling? What, you’ve never loved someone Pops? Quit? No… No I can’t quit. I need to stay in and I need to try and win. I need the money…
Well…a couple of people. But that itself too a while. Forget about actually telling them to their faces. Loving people takes a lot of trust. You need it that bad? You’re not like in trouble or anything are you?
You know, if we could just change the subject right now… That would be great… Pops, I like everyone and I like my friends even more. I just don’t think I love anyone. Scared? Sure… Sure… Yeah I’m scared.
Yeah…of course. Consider it changed. Ah. So you’re not really into that whole love thing, huh? That’s not a bad thing and probably not a totally uncommon thing either. But I hope you get to love someone sooner or later. I hear it’s a nice feeling. Yeah? But you don’t want to quit, right?
A lie is a lie. There are no good ones or bad ones, everyone just needs the truth no matter how much it hurts. Lies hurt way more. Of course not. I mean, I don’t love anyone so, how could I lie to someone I love if I don’t- don’t love them? Yeah I guess… That was just the first challenge though Pops…
I guess. I try not to lie as much as possible. Why hide anything, right? But sometimes I get where other people are coming from. Sometimes you’ve gotta lie to protect people or even to protect yourself. It doesn’t make people monsters either. Besides, sooner or later they’ll end up having to own up to them. You don’t love anyone at all? Not even family or friends? I know…Are you scared of what’s coming?
People shouldn’t lie to the people they love. That’s a terrible thing to do and probably why I could never- I’m never gonna be a good actor. Yeah… Yes. Exactly. I just- I kind of realized… I could have downed.
They shouldn’t but they do. Sometimes it’s not such a bad thing though. I mean there are while lies for a reason. But you’ve never lied to anyone you love? Well don’t worry too much, there’s other jobs out there for you, like a doctor or scientist. Yeah…but you’re okay Matilda. You got out alive and in one piece. That not only makes you alive but such a badass.
Don’t worry, I know I’m not a good actress. Then again, I would be good if I wanted it enough… Bothering me? Nothing… Panic…
I think people have to get the whole lying thing down to a science to be a really good actor. Once you can get away with lying to people you actually love then you know you’re ready to go, at least I think so. But I think you of all people could do anything you set your mind to since you’re a freaking genius. Oh, Panic…Did the challenge just really set in now?
Yeah, do I need to be more convincing?
I’m telling you as a friend, in the nicest way possible, to never try to become an actress. So what’s bothering you?
