From The Mindy Project Season 2 – “Be Cool”
Mindy: I don’t want to do this anymore. I don’t want to date in secret. I think we should either date for real or we should just end this.
Danny: Okay yeah, I think… I think you are right we should call it off…
M: Wait, what?! No! No Danny, Danny no! That was a false ultimatum! I’ve read in a magazine that’s how you get a guy to… Don’t worry I take it back! I take it back! I don’t want to stop dating, ok?
D: Okay listen… please stop, just listen to me, okay? I don’t know if you notice but—you’re my best friend. Sort of my…my only friend. And uh, I need to have you in my life. I have to have you. And this, I’m afraid that this is uh, this is gonna…
M: No, no, no, no Danny, don’t… Don’t!
D: Wait a minute, you don’t know what I’m about to tell you.
M: I do, I do! You don’t want to risk our great friendship. It’s a bunch of garbage! That’s what guys say. That’s what cowards say when they want to get out of sight but they still want to seem nice. Don’t tell me you want to be my best friend ’cause I have friends!
D: I don’t want you to get upset, okay? I’m sorry. I just… We want to kill each other, at least once a day.
M: I don’t mind it that much!
D: And what’s gonna happen if we start dating? I mean really, what’s gonna happen? You are gonna get attached to me!
D: And then we are gonna fight more… Then we are gonna break off… And then you’re gonna go work somewhere else! I’m not gonna see you! Is that what you want?
D: Is that what you want?
M: No, or… Or we fight but we make up and I change a little bit, and you change a lot…
D: Okay look, I’ve done that. I know me. I will ruin this! Mindy, there is a million things and if I could change one of them, great! But two, seven, twenty? Look, I think the best thing for us to do… I think, I think it’s good that we stop this now… I think you’ll see that I am right…
M: Why do we have to make this decision now? Danny! Why did you kiss me Danny? Why did you even start this?!
D: I’m sorry.
