Me: You know how when kids learn language, they try a word in all kinds of different contexts, and sort of figure out what it means by reading people's reactions to see if they're using it right? Watching you tell Chipmunk you love her so much makes me think we learn that word so early, and spend our entire lives trying to find the right circumstances, and now, right this moment, telling her I love her, I feel like I'm finally getting it, you know. Not to discount our relationship, I mean. It's not that. It's just...

Her: Babe, if, one week after we first met, you screamed continuously for three hours, we would not be married. I get what you're saying.
