It's very respectful. A good guy, though. How're you doing?
Wish me luck.
Thanks, but I don't drink.
Ah, you smoke, but you don't drink?
好吧 我也知道不該抽 但抽都抽了
Well, I shouldn't do that either, but you know what?
I thought that bridesmaids were not allowed to smoke.
I guess I'm not a very good bridesmaid then.
Don't be too hard on yourself.
The only real requirement is that you fit into the dress.
How am I doing?
You're doing good.
I was an alternate anyway.
The original 7th bridesmaid
had broken her leg in a freak accident.
'Course she swore, you know
...that she'd intended to invite me earlier...
but ahm... yeah, well...
You know how it goes...
I don't actually.
Well you? You could say
I had a history with one of the other guests.
A history? That sounds interesting.
不 沒意思 這無聊透頂
Oh no, it ain't. It's terribly boring.
不 不是的 我喜歡過去
No, actually that's not true. I love history.
all those distantly related royals fucking each other...
...ending up in tragic diseases...
...and with retardate children.
But this is the sad, dull, real people kind.
Mistakes repeated endlessly.
Lessons ... unlearned...
Thanks. I don't drink.
You smoke, but you don't drink.
Well, I shouldn't do that either.
I am trying to quit.
One bad habit at a time.
So the bride's 8th closest friend
I've thought about this.
As far as I see it...
...well the only absolute fact is that
I'm not one of the top 7 friends.
I mean on such short notice
she certainly could've asked
and been rejected by several other alternatives before she invited me.
Or you could be the only person she knew
who would potentially fit into the dress.
Yeah. Therefore, not a friend at all.
just a living mannequin to complete the insane symmetry
of 7 best men and 7 bridesmaids.
you are one of her 7 closest friends, but
the history you mentioned before...
...when the original 7th bridesmaid...
was taken up by the freak accident.
It gave the bride courage to
to revive the treasured relationship.
I don't think so.
because we were never all that close
even when we were close.
There was a two-week when though -when...
...we were almost friends.
But Mmm, I haven't spoken to her.
I haven't spoken to any of these people...
...for that matter, for ten years now.
So that's why a pretty girl like you
is standing all by yourself.
Some of these people used to be my friends
but they aren't any more.
I get tired playing the catch up game, you know
...stuggle to remember who I am.
And then the endless repetition of
...what I been doing
and who I've been doing...
You know after I finish my prepared speech
...I just lot of ... blankly...
...you know -besides this...
These used to be my ex-husband's friends.
So why are you here then?
I asked myself that very question
when I was getting on the plane.
and I could only come up with two reasons
neither of them very good.
What were they?
And... maybe because I just knew I shouldn't.
Something tells me you're trouble.
And maybe because I had enough miles
to make a trip for free.
That's three reasons.
Attention, all the single women.
Susie's about to throw the bridal bouquet.
Let's take it outside.
Isn't that your queue?
I'm not single.
You said ex-husband.
Yeah, I did.
It's just a ring. Gold, round.
married women aren't supposed to be bridesmaids.
Bridesmaids are brides in training.
They are practicing.
It is just a custom.
Bridesmaids are suppesed to be virgins.
Well, I didn't see any virgins out there
-did you? -I didn't check.
Anyway, I told you I was a bad bridesmaid.
That's what you get when you call on a second string.
editorial note 17.
Only one good dancing couple
Let's go to them when we need some dancing.
Everybody else, let's speed up or slow down
or black and white, or sepia tone.
May I have a... a Shirley Tempers please.
Did your husband come with you?
沒有 來不及 太突然了
No. He couldn't. Not on such short notice.
What does he do?
-Do? -for living.
Oh, he's a cardiologist.
We live in London.
tell me, you... um... married?
Not any more. I...
...I just have a girlfriend.
-是認真的嗎 -一點都不 不過我喜歡這樣
-serious? -Not at all. But I like it.
