Margulaine: Hey, who's that girl down there?
Arthur: The blonde with Lance? Don't tell anybody, but that's my fiancée. It's a big secret for some reason, even though everybody knows and I just introduced her to Lancelot as my fiancée in front of a horde of people.
Margulaine: Are you in love with her?
Me: How could he possibly be? She is incredibly unpleasant.
Arthur: I will be. I am going to force myself to love her for reasons unclear even to myself.
Margulaine: Is there someone else?
Margulaine: There is so; you can't lie to me. I am a priestess of the Harvest Home Womyn's Collective, which means I get my meals for half-price at most restaurants in town, I have an endless supply of hemp jewelry, and I can tell when people are lying.
Arthur: There is. There has been someone else.
Arthur: No, they cut that part of the book out of the screenplay.
Arthur: Tell me about it.
Margulaine: What are you talking about?
Arthur: Nothing. So this girl, I'm in love with her.
Margulaine: What's her name?
Arthur: I don't know.
Margulaine (smirking): You didn't ask?
Arthur: We didn't talk.
Me: Wow, gross.
Margulaine: Don't be a cultural relativist. What did she look like?
Arthur: She looked like a girl who got bored and drew all over herself with marker and then put on a scary mask and screwed a stranger at Beltane. Do you know anyone matching that description?
Margulaine: Oh, hell.
The rest of this scene is hard to watch and probably the most emotionally engaging part of the entire four-hour epic. Margulies should get an Emmy or something for this scene, I mean it. She's like a human Gwyneth Paltrow flipbook of facial expressions, because she doesn't want Arthur to know anything's wrong, and sure as hell doesn't want Arthur to know what is wrong, and wants the good times to continue because she misses her brother, and wants to get the hell out of there, and wants to kill somebody, and wants a fifth of scotch, and wants to go downstairs and do it with Lance even though that's unrelated, and she wants to go cry by herself, and she wants to smile at Arthur. It's really awesome. And he runs off laughing and saying they'll hang out later, and she freaks out and freaks out, and it's awful.
