All den Leserinnen und Lesern von „Die Archäologin“, die mir diese Frage gestellt haben, widme ich folgenden Filmausschnitt:
Receptionist: I can’t resist! You usually move through here so quickly and I just have so many questions I want to ask you. You have no idea what your work means to me.
Melvin Udall: What does it mean to you?
Receptionist: When somebody out there knows what it’s like… to be in here.
Melvin Udall: Oh God, this is like a nightmare.
Receptionist: Oh come on! Just a couple of questions. How hard is that? … How do you write women so well?
Melvin Udall: I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.
