As I think you know

Reynolds Woodcock:
As I think you know, Alma, I prefer my asparagus with oil and salt. And knowing this, you've prepared the asparagus with butter. Now, I can imagine in certain circumstances being able to pretend that I like it made this way. Right now, I'm just admiring my own gallantry for eating it the way you've prepared it.
Alma:
I don't know what I'm doing here. I, I don't know what I'm doing here. I'm just waiting around like a idiot for you.
Reynolds Woodcock:
This was an ambush, Alma. To what purpose?
Alma:
This is not... I know it's not going as I expected, I, I didn't mean these things to come out. I'm sorry, but it was meant to be nice.
Reynolds Woodcock:
Well, what did you expect?
Alma:
I wanted time with you. I wanted to have you to myself.

Transcript:
As I think you know, Alma,
I prefer my asparagus
with oil and salt.
And knowing this, you've prepared
the asparagus with butter.
Now, I can imagine
in certain circumstances
being able to pretend
that I like it made this way.
Right now, I'm just admiring
my own gallantry
for eating it the way
you've prepared it.
I don't know
what I'm doing here.
I don't know
what I'm doing here.
I'm just waiting around
like an idiot for you.
This was an ambush, Alma.
To what purpose?
This is not...
I know it's not going
as I expected.
I didn't mean
these things to come out.
I'm sorry, but it was
meant to be nice.
Well, what did you expect?
I wanted time with you. I
wanted to have you to myself.
- You have me all the time.
- No.
- What on earth are you talking about?
- I don't!
There are always people around.
And if not, then there's
something between us.
- Something between us?
- Yes.
- What?
- Some...
- What?
- Distance!
When did this happen?
What happened to make you
behave like this?
Is it because you think
I don't need you?
- Yes.
- I don't.
Well, that's
very predictable of you.
Don't act so tough.
I know you are not.
Yeah, that's right. That's right.
If I don't protect myself
somebody will come
in the middle of the night
and take over
my corner of the room
and ask me about
their fucking asparagus!
- Don't be a bully. You're being a bully.
- There are other things
- I'd like to do with my time. It's my time!
- I have no idea
- what I'm doing here in your time!
- My time!
What am I doing here?
I'm standing around like
an idiot waiting for you!
- Waiting for what?
- Waiting for you.
Waiting for what?
Waiting for you
to get rid of me.
To tell me to leave.
So tell me.
