I remarked to John that rationality is not a device to alter facts

Samia Glavia:
[to Carl and Catherine]
I remarked to John that rationality is not a device to alter facts. But moreover, I think of it as an extraneous tool, a gadget. Somewhat like, uh, the television. To look at it any other way is ridiculous.
Rayette:
There's some good things on it though.
Samia Glavia:
I beg your pardon?
Rayette:
The TV. There's some good things on it sometimes.
Samia Glavia:
I have strong doubts.

I remarked to John that rationality
is not a device to alter facts.
But moreover, I think of it
as an extraneous tool, a gadget.
Somewhat like, uh, the television.
To look at it any other way
is ridiculous.
There's some good things on it though.
- I beg your pardon?
- The TV.
There's some good things on it sometimes.
I have strong doubts.
Nevertheless, I am not discussing media.
- Oh, but there is always hope for the few.
- What about love?
What about it?
Wouldn't you say that more ill...
has been done in the name of love
than in the name of abomination?
No. No, I wouldn't.
Well, you are a romantic, Catherine.
And once more
about to be married.
So you can be excused
from objective discussions. But ask Carl.
Ask him if even the institution of marriage
is completely free from it.
Ask him.
I think these cold, objective
discussions are aggressive.
