Naomi: I do want someone. I need someone.
Naomi: You're it.
Emily: (teary) And?
Naomi: (crying) And... when I'm with you, I feel like a better person. And I feel happier, less alone... less lonely

Naomi: It's not as simple as that, is it? Being with someone?
Emily: Isn't it?
Naomi: No. I'm mean I don't know. At least, I don't think so.

Naomi: Can't we just sit like this for a bit?
Emily: (beat) Yeah, we can... for a bit.
