Jessica: Wait a second. Are you saying my life has no value?
Helen: No! I am saying that maybe, underneath all the neurosis, you have a profound capacity for happiness that your're not allowing to exist.
Jessica: How do you know? You just met me.
Helen: You can't possible know who you are or how you'll respond to something until you try it.
Jessica: I happen to disagree. I happen to think that if you know yourself well, you can gauge how you're gonna react to something. And I pretty much assure you that I will never be made happy by chanting for spiritual enlightenment.
Helen: Or maybe you would. You can't know.
Jessica: Trust me, I know.
Helen: You know?
Jessica: Yeah, I know.
Helen: You know how you'll react to anything?
Jessica: Pretty much, yes.
[Helen than grabs Jessica and kisses her passionately, then pulls away looking at Jessica’s silent, stunned look]
Helen: [sarcastic tone] I guess you're right. You seem to know yourself pretty well.
