我想说明下开篇我说这是一部青葱电影的依据：当Peter看到Jesse和Zibby对面坐着，生气的无非是“又一个借以爱情甚至文学之名勾搭无知少女试以温暖自己冷死了的青春”的混蛋，Jesse从后门追出去找连招呼都不和他打的Peter两人开始谈论：“Do you know how old I feel like I am? Since I was 19,I have never felt not 19.Nobody feels like an adult”是的，荏苒的时光并不能带走青春，即使是那些自怨自艾十分钟年华老去的心灵，那些咏怀过往者何尝不是青春的信徒，期待轮回中会再见到年轻？
They were miserable men who were granted a few moments of transcendence, and they had the talent and foresight to grab pen and paper and write it down. Byron was probably the happiest of the lot, only because he put his dick in everything. My advice t you is this: Put some armor around that gooey little heart of yours.
那段“I sometimes feel like I’m looking down on myself, like there’s this older, wiser me watching over this 19-year-old rough draft, who’s full of all this potential, but has to live more to catch up with that other self somehow. I know I’ll get there. It’s just sometimes I think I want to rush the process, you know? And I don’t know. Maybe…maybe I thought you were some sort of shortcut.” 我倒是更愿意理解为善意的安抚，就像不管Jesse找上Zibby多少是为了回首已然逝去的大学。在一起，纯属相互吸引，并不应该追究潜意识动机——Zibby只是为了不让彼此伤感和自责，那些让爱情终结的理由，说出来让当事人彼此相认终究是残忍的，既然不能改变结果，就找一个双方都能深信不疑的借口吧。
