Diane:
Sam, I have never been more grateful to you than I am now. I just looked into the face of insensitivity and dishonesty and it made me blanch. I am going out there and I'm going to break up with Stuart, but I'm going to do it honestly, straight-forwardly, and yet caringly. I'll tell him the truth of my feelings, that I'm not attracted to him romantically, although I am very attracted to him as a friend. And I'll say it in a way that he will accept and understand and be grateful for. Do you even begin to understand what I'm trying to say?



Sam:
[pause] Everything except the part where you changed your name to "Blanche".



Diane:
[completely unsurprised] Goodbye, Sam.



Sam:
Goodbye, Blanche.
