“I am no one special, just a common man with common thoughts. I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me. And my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I’ve succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. Feeling good. I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me that has always been enough. How’s it hanging, Harry? Well, you can’t have everything. Big day today.” — Noah Calhoun

“Ahh… all right now, where did we leave off? Oh, yeah, yeah, it was the night of the carnival. ‘Noah, was there with his friends, Fin and Sarah.’ That’s where they met– June 6th, 1940. Allie was 19 years old.” — Noah Calhoun

“Who’s this girl with Sara? You want to dance with me? Why not? I’ll pay you when I get down, Tommy. I’m Noah Calhoun. So, it’s really nice to meet you. I would really like to take you out. Okay, Tommy, all right. Now, will you go out with me? No? Why not? What? Well, you leave me no other choice then. I’m gonna ask you one more time. Will you… or will you not go out with me? God damn, my hand’s slipping. Not until she agrees. No, don’t do me any favors. Say it. Say it again. All right, all right we’ll go out. What are you doing? Please don’t do that. Please don’t do that, Allie. I can’t believe… oh, God. I’m gonna get your for that.” — Noah Calhoun

“Did he say anything to you? Do you remember me? Well, I… yeah, I wanted to clear that up with you, because I’m really sorry about that. It was a really stupid thing to do– crawl up a ferris wheel to talk to somebody. But I had to be next to you. I was being drawn to you. No. What are you doing tonight? Or tomorrow night, or this weekend, whatever. Why? Our date. The date that you agreed to. Yes, you did. You promised and you swore it. Look, I know you get some dirty guy coming up to you on the street– you don’t know him. You don’t know me, but I know me. And when I see something that I like, I gotta ha– I love it. I go– I mean, I go crazy for it. Well, you. What? No. No, you’re getting me wrong. I’m not. I’m not usually like this, I’m sorry. I can be fun, if you want… pensive, uh, smart, uh, superstitious, brave. And uh… I can be light on my feet. I could be whatever you want. You just tell me what you want and I’ll be that for you. I could be that. Come on, one date. What’s it gonna hurt? Well, what can I do to change your mind?” — Noah Calhoun

“You sure she’s coming? Hi. It’s nice to see you again. You look great. Really, really great. After you. Want to walk with me? We’re gonna walk. Okay, good bye. Mm-hmm. Really? What? You’re busy? Wow. Sounds like the road to success. And who’s we? You just said ‘the ones that we want.’ Everything? And then everything else, you get to decide all by yourself? I’m sorry. Just trying to figure out what you do for fun. I mean… I don’t know, I mean all those things are things you have to do, right? So what do you do because you want to? I don’t know. This surprises me. I just always figured you were kinda… just… free. Free. You don’t seem like it. Come here, I want to show you something. Just come on. By all the cars? My Dad and I used to come out here and lay down and watch the lights change. And watch them go from green to red to yellow. You could try it if you wanted to. Why not? That’s your problem, you know that? You don’t do what you want. We die. Just relax. Just trust. You need to learn how to trust. Hmm? What now? Yeah? Huh. Are you okay? Why are you laughing? Do you want to dance with me? Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Who said dance in the street? Well, we’ll make some.” — Noah Calhoun

“♪ Bum bum ♪ Bum bum bum ♪ Bum ♪ Bum bum ♪ Bum bum bum bum bum. I know. Southern summers are indifferent to the trials of young love. Armed with warnings and doubts, Noah and Allie gave a remarkably convincing portrayal of a boy and a girl traveling down a very long road with no regard for the consequences. Yes, they did. After that night, Allie and Noah spent every waking hour together. And soon they were inseparable.” — Noah Calhoun

“Your boat cannot beat me there. That’s really nice. ‘Beautiful dripping fragments. The negligent list of one after another, as I happen to call them to me. Or drink to them. The real poems, what we call poems, being merely pictures. The poems of the privacy of the night. And of men like me. This poem, drooping shy and unseen, that I always carry. And that all men carry.'” — Noah Calhoun

“Dad, this is Allison Hamilton. Yes. No, it’s not right. Don’t believe what he says. El– Dad– God. I stammered. Unbelievable, unbelievable. Dad, It’s 10:00. It was an improbable romance. He was a country boy. She was from the city. She had the world at her feet, while he didn’t have two dimes to rub together.” — Noah Calhoun

“What are we doing? What do you mean? I don’t know. No. Don’t do it. Stop it. Stop it now. You’re not. You’re a bird. If you’re a bird, I’m a bird. What are you doing? Don’t. Don’t! Here we go, on the count of three, okay? One… two… …three! Get in the water! Get in! I’m sorry. Get in the water, baby. Baby, would you get in. Get in the water! Come on, jump. Three.” — Noah Calhoun

“Keep ’em together! No, no, no. Get to your place. And move. And keep it. No, don’t move it! They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time. Don’t push me. And they challenged each other every day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other. No.” — Noah Calhoun

“I work at the lumber yard with Fin. Mainly milling and receiving logs– and stripping the bark. Thank you. Uh, how much money do I make? About 40 cents an hour. Yeah, it’s not much, but I don’t need a lot. And I– save most of it. Yes, ma’am. You know, Charleston’s only a couple of hours away. No, she didn’t tell me that. It’s okay. I didn’t know that. I’m gonna do it.” — Noah Calhoun

“Mmm. Do you want to go somewhere? Wait here. Allie! Come on. All right, take a step. Step. No, don’t– all right, just stay there. Don’t open your eyes. Okay. The Windsor Plantation. It was built in 1772. Rumor has it that Francis Marion… proposed to his wife right here under these– uh, these steps. Watch out. You be careful. These are broken. Look at that. Yeah, a gigantic piece of crap. But I’m gonna buy it one day and I’m gonna fix it up. All it needs is a new floor. And new walls and a roof. And plumbing and electric. Yes, and furniture. But it’s right on the water. And there’s a big barn out there–I could turn that into my workshop. You want a say in this? What do you want? Mm-hmm. Anything else? Whoa, whoa, whoa– okay. Mm-hmm, I promise. Where are you going?” — Noah Calhoun

“Yeah? Yeah? Right. You all right? Did I hurt you? No. No. Of course I thought about it. Uh-huh. You all right? All right. I love you. Did you know that? You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. What? Fin, get out of here!” — Noah Calhoun

“Mr. Hamilton, all this is my fault. Sir, it’s really not her fault. I lost track of time. It’s all right. Yeah. Shh… I’m gonna go. I got to think about some stuff. About what? You want– you’re going away! You’re leaving. And I’m staying here. And I’m so happy that you’re doing it, but you’re gonna have a million things to do. You got so much ahead of you. It’s true. I’m not going to have nice things, fancy things. It doesn’t– it’s never gonna happen for me. It’s not in the cards for me. Yes, you do. No. Do you see, that’s exactly what I am talking about? To New York? What am I going to do in New York? Yeah. I don’t know. We don’t got to figure all this out tonight, ya know? We’ll finish out the summer and we’ll see what happens. What I’m saying, we’ll see how it goes later on. I don’t see how it’s gonna work. What are you doing? Come here. I’m gonna go.” — Noah Calhoun

“Gone. She was. Yeah. Yeah, you’re right, probably should have. The next day, Allie woke up to find her world completely changed. Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons. But when all is said and done, they have one thing in common: they are shooting stars– a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity. And in a flash, they’re gone. Noah was desperate. He wrote to Allie that he was sorry and stupid for breaking up with her. He wrote to tell her that he still loved her, and he wanted to see her. And that if she would write back, he would come to wherever she was. He wrote one letter a day for a year– 365 letters, but they all went unanswered. Hey friend, nothing? All right, thank you. Finally, after a year of silence, he decided to put it all behind him and start a new life. So he wrote a farewell letter and he and Fin packed their bags and headed for Atlanta.” — Noah Calhoun

“The constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Noah and Fin enlisted together, and after two years of chasing Rommel through the North African desert, they were deployed to Patton’s third army in Europe. Go! Fin!” — Noah Calhoun

“Allie was in her third year of college when she volunteered as a nurse’s aid. To her, the broken men with shattered bodies, who filled the ward were all Noah. Or someone who fought beside him in the jungle or frozen snow swept road.” — Noah Calhoun

“Allie was surprised how quickly she fell in love with Lon Hammond. He was handsome, smart, funny, sophisticated and charming. He also came from old southern money, and was fabulously wealthy.” — Noah Calhoun

“She agreed with all her heart, but couldn’t understand why at the very moment she said yes, Noah’s face came to her mind.” — Noah Calhoun

“Yeah. All right. What’s going on? What is this? You sold the house? Get what? Dad– well, I can’t let you sell your house. Wait a second. You sell the house, where are you gonna live?” — Noah Calhoun

“Noah took a look at the house, but only saw one thing– Allie. He decided right then and there to fulfill his life-long dream. He would rebuild the old house from the ground up. And when Noah went to Charleston to get the building plans approved, fate stepped in and deal him a sweet card. Stop the bus! Stop the bus. No, no, no, please stop the bus now. Please! God.” — Noah Calhoun

“After seeing Allie that day, something inside Noah snapped. He got the notion into his head that if he restored the old house where they had come that night, Allie would find a way to come back to him. Some called it a labor of love. Others called it something else. But in fact, Noah had gone a little mad. Would– the melon is good. I had a bite. Now you don’t want me to spoil the end of the story before I get to the good part, do you? Where did I leave off? When Noah’s father died in November, the house was all he had. In time, Noah finished the house. He took a good look at what he had accomplished, got rip-roaring drunk for 10 days, thought seriously about setting it on fire, then finally put the house up for sale.” — Noah Calhoun

“He had a number of interested buyers, but he always found a reason not to sell it to them. No. Either the bids were too low, or if they met his asking price, he felt it was worth a lot more. That’s more than my asking price. He told the man that offered him $5,000 over his price that no one in his right mind would do that and he wouldn’t have a lunatic living in his house. He worked out his frustration with life on the creek every morning. And in the evenings, to temper the sting of loneliness, there was Martha Shaw. Martha was a war widow who lived in Quail Ridge, a town away.” — Noah Calhoun

Allie Hamilton

“I don’t think so. Hello? Read? No. I don’t know. Noah?”

“Oww! Umm, okay. No. ‘Cause I don’t want to. I’d love to. What? Oh… did you see he was standing like two inches away from my face?”

“Get off me. Don’t touch me. Well, I… ugh! So?! I don’t know, Noah Calhoun. What? No. I don’t know, because I don’t want to. Okay, okay, fine, I’ll go out with you. No, no. I want to. Yes! I want to go out with you. I want to go out with you. You think you’re so smart, don’t you? No, it’s okay. I’ll take care of this. You’re not so cocky now, are ya? Ah, maybe you will, maybe you won’t.”

“Yeah, sure, Mr. Underwear was it? How could I forget. Oh– oh, jeez, what a line! You use that on all the girls? Right. I saw you the other night with little miss ribbons. What? Why? What date? No… well, I guess I changed my mind. Okay, what are you talking about? Oh, you’re good. You’re good. You’re good. You are. You’re fantastic. You really are. I’m impressed. Oh, yes, you are. You’re dumb. Umm… I don’t think so. Guess you’ll figure something out.”

“I need to talk to you for a second. Yes, I remember. Hi. You too. Aw, thanks. Yeah. That was fun. I haven’t seen a movie in ages. Huh-uh. Not since I was a little kid. No, I, uh… I’m busy, you know, I don’t have a lot of time. Mm-hmm. I have a very strict schedule. My days are all planned out. I get up in the morning– breakfast, math tutor, Latin tutor, lunch, tennis lessons, dance lessons– sometimes both– French tutor, piano lesson, then I eat dinner. And after dinner I spend time with my family. And then I– I catch up on some reading. Oh, you bet. We’re applying to all these colleges–umm… Radcliffe, Sarah Lawrence– those are the ones we want. What? Oh, Mom and Daddy. We decide everything together. No, not everything. But the important things, yes. Don’t be rude. What do you mean? I just told ya. What? Kinda what? What? I am free. Well, I am. Noah, what are you doing? You’re gonna get run over. No. Because I don’t know– will you just get up? Okay. What happens if a car comes? What? Okay. Painting. You asked me what I do for me. I love to paint. Mm-hmm. Most of the time, I have all these thoughts bouncing around in my head. But with a brush in my hand, the world just get kinda quiet. Oh, that was fun. Sure. Now? Here? Not supposed to dance in the middle of the street. And we don’t have any music.”

“You’re a terrible singer. But I like this song. They fell in love, didn’t they? Good. I like this kind of story. Go on. Mmm, mmm, mmm…”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Allie. Please to meet you, Mr. Calhoun. Okay. Oh, is that right? Umm, I– uh, I just– I brought you something. Mm-hmm. Oh, that was a lovely poem. What was it? I didn’t know that. Well, it’s a good idea, that poetry. Huh? Breakfast? Sure.”

“Noah, come on. Whoo! Look at us. Do you think in another life, I could have been a bird? Like reincarnation. I think I could. Say I’m a bird. Say I’m a bird. Say it! Yeah. Now say you’re a bird too. Okay, okay. Two… no! I can’t. I can’t. One… two…”

“Down here. I don’t understand what you’re talking about. Don’t kick me. Okay, I have to go. Yes, I do.”

“Daddy. Oh, Daddy you’re– I didn’t see you there. You kinda scared me. Yes. Okay. Good night, Daddy. I just got the letter. I was going to tell you. Whoo! Yeah.”

“Mmm. Okay. Mm-hmm? Huh? This– this place is gigantic. It is. . Is that all? And furniture. Well, what about me? Now don’t I get any say in this? Yes, I would. I want a white house…with blue shutters… and a room overlooking the river so I can paint. Yes. I want a big old porch that wraps around the entire house. We can drink tea… and watch the sun go down. You promise? Good. In here. Wow. I can’t play chopsticks with you doing that. Oh, God. Oh, make love to me.”

“Noah. Um… I know I said that I wanted you to make love to me, but I think you– you’re gonna have to talk me through this. Yeah. No, no. I’m just– I’m just having a lot of thoughts. I’m just– I’m just having a lot of– never mind. Like what are you thinking? What are you thinking, right now? You know, right this second? Uh… did you know that this was going to happen when you brought me here? No? No, you didn’t think about it? You did? Well, what did you think? Uh, I’m talking too much, aren’t I? Okay, okay, I’m just going to shut up. Mum’s the word. Okay. Yeah. Uh-huh. I just don’t understand how come you’re so quiet. You don’t have one thought? I’m going crazy over here, but no, with you, everything’s fine. You don’t have a care in the world? I’m sorry. I wanted this to be so perfect. Now I can’t shut up. I love you too. No, no, I want to, I do.”

“You sent the police for me? I’m sorry, Daddy. No. Like what, mother? Daddy, come on! He’s what? He is what? Tell me. Trash? Don’t touch me! No, it’s not final. You’re not going to tell me who I’m gonna love. Yes Daddy, I love him. I love him. I love him. Oh, and you do? You don’t look at Daddy the way I look at Noah. You don’t touch or laugh. You don’t play. You don’t know anything about love. Noah? Noah? Hey, hey. You leaving? I’m so sorry. I don’t even know what to say. I’m humiliated. No, it’s not. No, it’s not. No. No, I don’t want you to go. What do you got to think about, huh? Come here and talk to me. Talk to me! No. Don’t talk like that. I don’t have to go to school, okay? I can stay here. Then you can come with me. Yes. Be with me? You saying you want to break it off? Are you breaking up with me? I see… please don’t do this. You don’t mean it. Oh hell, well if you’re going to do it, why wait until the summer ends, huh? Why don’t you just do it, right now? Huh? Come on. Come on. Do it! Do it! Do it right now. Do it! Stop it! Oh! You know what? I’m gonna do it. It’s over. Okay? It’s over. Don’t touch me. I hate you, I hate you. Why don’t you, why don’t you just go. Get out. Leave! Go! Go! No, no, just wait a minute. We’re not really breaking up, are we? Come on. This is just a fight we’re having, and tomorrow will be like it never happened, right?”

“Going? Well, she must have been devastated. He was only trying to do the right thing. But what he really should have done is just told those parents to go to hell. Just stick it where the sun don’t shine. What’s going on? We’re going now? No, we’re not supposed to be leaving for another week. I don’t want you to pack my things. I don’t want you to touch my stuff. I’m not going. No, I’m not. No, I’m not.”

“Excuse me. Fin! Where’s Noah? I’m leaving town. Yeah. Now, right now– like today. Look, I need you to tell Noah something, okay? I need you to tell him that I love him. And tell him that I’m sorry for everything, okay? No! No, it’s not over. Fin, we had a fight last night. No, we said some things we didn’t mean, but it’s not over. No. I’m coming. Mama, I’m coming! But– okay. Okay, can you just– can you just tell him that I love him, then? Can you do that? Bye, Fin.”

“I’m gonna lift you up. Ready? There we go. Now, I’m gonna bring this leg over. Set it on the stool. You okay? Hmm? Excuse me? Okay, okay, ‘Casanova,’ come on. Let’s just get you better, then we’ll talk about a date, okay?”

“What is he doing here? Oh, what’s happening? Where you going? Okay, I give up, why shouldn’t we get married? My parents? Mom? They do. Really? So what’s the problem, huh? Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Oh my goodness, what are we going to do? Huh! I do? I do, why? I think you have overlooked one minor detail. Well, you see, you have to get their permission first. And I think you may have overestimated their affection for you. Mm-hmm. Then why not? What? Yes. Yes! Where are you going? Oh my God. Mama!”

“Oh! Did they ever see each other again? Noah and Allie?”

Lon Hammond

“All right. Yeah. Miss, can I ask you a question? I noticed that you aren’t wearing a ring. And I was wondering if I could take you out. On a date. Now, before you go and say no, I’ll have you know that I am an excellent dancer and my intentions are completely dishonorable.”

“Oh, miss? I’m all better. Now, how’s about that date?”

“Where they going? Oh dear, look at that. Allie, I’ve been thinking a lot about why we shouldn’t get married. Well see, that’s the thing, I couldn’t think of anything at first. And then it just dawned on me. Your parents… absolutely. Your old mom and dad. Thank you for that. You see, the problem is that they love me. I’m exactly the type of man they want you to end up with. You know, I’m wealthy, I’m from the south, I got a decent job. You know, I’m an incredible dancer, I’m a really smart guy. You look great. I like to think– now just this, if you marry me–now listen close. If you marry me… then you will have lost a life long battle of defiance against them. I do not know. See Allie, I think– damn it, I think you have to marry me. I think you need to marry me. Yes you do. Because if you do, your parents will always know the unhappiness that you feel for not being able to disappoint them. And what’s that? Is that right? Oh, I don’t think so. Oh, ’cause I asked them already and they said yes. One more thing. I love you. Will you marry me, honey? I know I kid around a lot, but I’m crazy about you. Marry me? Make me the happiest man in the world. Just hold tight. Okay, stop the band. Excuse me. I’d lkike everyone here to know that this young lady and I are getting married.”

“Baby, hello. Hold it. Oh, come with it.”

Frank Calhoun

“Not bad for Whitman. Hey, look, we got a visitor. Well, don’t apologize, come on up here, darling. We could use a little something here besides the smell of lumber. Allison, I’m glad to meet you. Allie. Well Mr. Calho– what, am I old or something? You can call me Frank. Here, come in and have a seat. So, Allie. Well, yeah, she is pretty son. A lot prettier than you let on. What is this you got? Let me see. Let’s have a look. Did you do this? Well, that’s beautiful. Look at that. That’s a damn picture there. Well, I know just where we can put that, thank you. Whitman. See when he was a little kid he used to stutter real bad. So– well, you did. Stammered, stutter, what’s the difference? Couldn’t understand a damn thing he said. So I got him to read poetry out loud. It wasn’t very pretty at first, but then his stutter went away. Yeah, I thought so. I’m a Tennyson man, myself, but likes Whitman– for some reason, I don’t know. Say, how would you like some breakfast? Would you like some breakfast? Yeah. What’s that got to do with it? You can have pancakes any damn time of night you want. Come on, you want some breakfast?”

“Come on, darling. Is that Allie out there?”

“Hey, Noah, yeah! Oh, good to see you. Let me see you. You bleeding anywhere? No? Everything good? Oh, I love you. Come on, there’s something I got to show you. Come on. Here. I sold the house. Yup. I gotta be out by the end of the month. Between that and your GI bill, you ought to be able to get it now. Your dream house. The Windsor plantation. Now, don’t Dad me, I don’t want to hear about it. I already talked to the bank, they’re gonna give you the loan. It’s done. It’s a good thing. You should do it. With you, dummy, what do you think? Somebody’s gotta help you fix it up.”

John Hamilton

“Allie. Becoming friendly with that boy down there. Bring him to the house on Sunday. I want to meet this young man. Good night. Oh, boy.”

“This bug goes ‘Daddy, I don’t understand.’ He goes, ‘well, in theory, we’re both millionaires, but in reality, we live with a bunch of holes.’ Bishop Stevens told me that. So, what do you do, Noah? Let’s eat. Shall we? Anne, this conversation’s too stuffy for the dinner table. Let the children have fun without bringing in the Spanish Inquisition. I do know another joke about the nun and the full standing bishop. That wasn’t me.”

“Nah, it’s just summer love.”

“Thank God you’re all right. Where you been? Would you give us a moment please? I’d like to talk to my daughter. Alone, young lady. Thanks for everything, Lieutenant. You go straight home now, it’s late. Sit down. Anne, please. Love? He’s not suitable for you, baby.”

Anne Hamilton

“Olivier, please remove the– the liquor decanter from in front of my husband. I think he’s had a little too much to drink. So Noah, you and Allie have been spending a lot of time together. You must be very fond of each other. It’s getting pretty serious, huh? Well, summer’s almost gone. What will you do? But Allie’s going to Sarah Lawrence. Didn’t she tell you? And Sarah Lawrence is in New York. My lips are buttoned, right now. I’m leaving the table if you tell another joke.”

“That child’s got too much spirit for a girl of her circumstance. Trouble is what it is.”

“Yes. It is two in the morning we sent the police. Is he a rapist? You are going to stop seeing Noah. She is out fooling around with that boy till 2:00 in the morning and it has got to stop. I didn’t spend 17 years of my life raising a daughter and giving her everything… so she could throw it away on a summer romance. She will wind up with her heart broken or pregnant. Now, he is a nice boy. He’s a nice boy, but he’s– he is trash, trash, trash– not for you. Now that is enough. You are not to see him anymore. And that’s final. Yes it is. You are 17 years old, you don’t know anything about love.”

“We’re going home. Mm-hmm. Get dressed and then come and have some breakfast, dear. Willow will pack your things. Yes, you are. Yes, Allie, you are. Allie, you are going whether you like it or not. Now, even if Aaron has to throw you over his shoulder and drag you the whole way, you’re going.”

“See you later, sweetheart.”


“Damn! Ha, you’re real funny. Man, I clobbered that thing. I’m tellin’ you, these games are fixed. Hello. Hi, what’s your name? Her name’s Allie Hamilton. She’s here for the summer with her family. Dad’s got more money than God. Hi, honey. Look, I won you a prize. What are you doing? Ah, go out with him, honey.”

“Oh, yeah, will you look at that? It’s that girl from the carnival, right?”

“Relax, pal, it’s all set up. We’re meeting her for the late show. Look– what did I tell you? Come on. Come here. You do look great. You look great. And I know I look great, so could we please go see this movie? The show’s about to start.”

“Here you go. What are you guys doing? Do you guys love each other? Huh? Oh, I get it. You guys do love each other. All right, all right.”

“Real easy, on three, ready? Two– two… come on, chicken.”

“Noah! Noah! Look, I’m sorry, but Allie’s parents are going crazy. They got every cop in town out looking for her.”

“All right, let’s go. We have to have all these done by lunch. You shouldn’t be standing around. Here we go. He’s out delivering a load. What’s going on? Leaving? When? Look, I was up all night with him, Allie. I’ve never seen him so low. It’s over. Don’t make it any harder than it already is. It is over. Leave it alone. Let it go. Look, he understands. It’s hard, but he really does. Summer’s over and it’s time to go home. If he wants to talk to you, he’ll write. If not…? I’ll tell him. She’s gone.”

“Noah! Noah! Noah! Come on, listen to this!”

Sara Tuffington

“Hi, Fin! Oh, Fin, thank you! Noah Calhoun. Works down at the lumber yard with Fin. Yeah, I saw. That’s Noah, though. You know I’m surprised he even came over. I think he likes you. Get down, Noah, you’re gonna kill yourself! Noah! I’m not kidding, Noah, stop fooling around. Noah, you best come on. Then grab the bar, you idiot. That wasn’t funny, Noah, you idiot!”

“Oh, my goodness, what a coincidence! He’s here! Allie, you remember Noah, don’t you? Yeah. Fin!”

“Thank you. Yeah, what’s going on? Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. Mmm…”

“Noah, come on.”
