Promise - text
Promise...Webster’s defines promise as
‘a declaration that something will or will not be done’
Where have you been? Is this some stupid game?
I meant it when I said I need to talk to you
I understand, but Ivy, nothing’s changed
You have no idea what I’m going through!
I’ll say it one more time
I’m sorry I don’t feel the same
We had ourselves a moment, but it’s gone
My head’s in thirty different places
Please, just try to understand
Let’s leave things at that and just move on!
That night...We weren’t safe!
So tell me how we move on!
I don’t know what it is you want from me
I don’t have time to hear whatever tale you’ve spun
I have to write this speech before tonight
Plus, there are all these scenes I have to run
You know what I am saying!
I would never make this up
You’re a winner, have your perfect back!
Way to go, you got me pregnant
Put that in your fucking speech!
It’s one incredible guy who gives the facts!
Shit...Why are you doing this to me?
We’re in this together...
I’ve got to pull together...
We’ll take it one step at a time...
This is what I wanted?
Tell me, tell me what to do...
Somehow we’ll get through..
Jason, I still love you
Someday maybe you can learn...
Maybe you can...
Maybe I can...
Maybe you can...
JASON / IVY
Learn to love you/me too...
Maybe he would love you
Maybe if he weren’t that way
He wouldn’t treat your feelings like his toy!
Maybe make you feel real special
Like I always wanted to!
But he’s already in love with a boy!
Am I late?
What’s going on?
Jason, have you seen Ivy?
I guess you have
Only since this afternoon!
Ivy’s pregnant and your boyfriend’s a dad!
So what does that make you?
What the fuck are you talking about ‘my boyfriend?’
Don’t play dumb with me, Peter!
Get the fuck outta here, Matt!
Should I tell them what I saw at the rave?
Look, I’m not here to judge, just keep everyone on the same page
And, hey, I think I found that strong opening
You were looking for in your speech
Whatever, Matt, whatever you saw…
Ha! Are you gonna stand there and deny it?
Oh? You know?
Yeah, I fuckin’ know! Oh yeah!
He knows, Jason...He knows because I told him…
It was after Ivy’s birthday. We were drunk. I’m sorry...
No. You know what? I’m not.
Peter, what are you talking about? Jason, he’s kidding right? Jason?
It’s just that…
If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this
[Ivy slaps Matt?]
Peter, I don’t know what’s going on...you gotta help me!
You know what? Then fuck you, Peter! Fuck you
