ALEX: Well, by the time you’re thirty four, all the physical requirements are pretty much out the window. I mean you secretly pray he’ll be taller than you.

Not an asshole would be nice? Just someone who enjoys my company. Comes from a good family – You don’t think about that when you’re younger. (thinking) Wants kids… Likes kids… Wants kids. Healthy enough to play catch with his future son one day.

Please let him earn more than I do. That doesn’t make sense now, but believe me, it will one day. Otherwise it’s just a recipe for disaster. (reaching) Hopefully some hair on his head…? But it’s not exactly a deal-breaker anymore. Nice smile… Yep, a nice smile just might do it.
