Notes on a Scandal (2006)
Andrew Simpson: Steven Connolly
Steven Connolly : [after he and Sheba have made love for the first time] Can I smoke, Miss?
Sheba Hart : You can do what you want, but enough of this 'Miss'.
Steven Connolly : [laughs] Were you a model once?
[shakes her head]
Steven Connolly : Well you should've been. You're well fit.
Sheba Hart : Gosh but don't I know it.
Steven Connolly : [smiles] You're into The Streets?
Sheba Hart : Mmm, no, my daughter is.
Steven Connolly : She the same age as me?
Sheba Hart : None of your beeswax.
Steven Connolly : [laughs] Well, anyway, the point is - you're fit.
Sheba Hart : So are you.
Steven Connolly : You reckon? My sister thinks I look like a bollock with measles.
[pause as Sheba smiles and watches him]
Sheba Hart : You've done my brain in.
Sheba Hart : So that's your vicious father?
Steven Connolly : You wanted a sob story, I gave it to you. Made you feel like Bob Geldof.
Sheba Hart : You lied to me!
Steven Connolly : Ooooh, sorry, Miss! What, would you prefer it if I lived in a shithole?
Sheba Hart : And your mother?
Steven Connolly : I think she's gonna pull through. What do you want? What're you doin' here?
[Steven gives Sheba a necklace as a Christmas present]
Steven Connolly : It's made of real fake gold.
Steven Connolly : [throws cigarette] They're going to expel me now!
Sheba Hart : No, they won't. I'll get the blame if she tells.
Steven Connolly : As if she won't!
Sheba Hart : She - likes me, she might not.
Steven Connolly : She likes you, huh? Like that? You givin' her one and all?
Sheba Hart : Why are you being so cruel? Why, Steven?
Steven Connolly : I really like you. You're a nice person, and you've been cool, and it's been great, okay? But it's supposed to be fun. Now it's a serious thing. Whatever shit you're working out, you know, with your husband, your kid, you - I don't know. I can't help you.
Steven Connolly : You're beautiful, Miss. Ya don't know how beautiful ya are!
Steven Connolly : [not realizing he's speaking to Barbara, who has snatched and answered Sheba's mobile phone] Where are ya? I've been dreamin' about your hot, sweet cunt all morning'!
Sheba Hart : [touches Steven's cheek] It's incredibly important we keep this secret. Does anyone know you're here?
Steven Connolly : No.
[pause, Sheba sits down with him]
Steven Connolly : Miss. I'm no genius, but I ain't a dickhead. I won't tell no one. You can trust me.
Sheba Hart : We'd both get into terrible trouble.
[they kiss and start to make love]
