The big break up.

Extracts from this document...


Anthony McCabe page 1 The big break up. Emma struggles to open the door of her house with Aaron running behind. Emma then slams the door into Aaron while he's trying to get in. She walks over to the other side of the room and then Aaron enters and closes the door. Aaron Emma, please talk to me! Emma I can't even look at you right now. Aaron A mistake! I made a mistake! Emma A mistake? Aaron, you had sex with another woman. (Pause). You know what? I want you to leave. (Emma walks over to the front door and opens it). Aaron No, no, I wanna stay, I wanna talk about this. (Emma slams the front door and walks over to Aaron). Emma Alright. What do you wanna talk about? (Pause). Do you wanna talk about why you cheated on me? Or do you wanna talk about how sorry you are? Huh? What do you wanna talk about? (Pause). Come on, you said you wanna talk. So let's talk. You can start with what she was like, and what she meant to you. ...read more.


I wanna be with you for the rest of my life. Life without you isn't worth living. i need you Emma. I love you. Twenty long, quiet minutes pass by. (They're both sitting down on the couch. Aaron is staring at Emma. Emma is staring at the floor.) Aaron What? So, now you're not even looking at me. (Pause). (Emma is still staring at the floor. The pace starts to pick up again). Aaron Look, Emma I'm sorry ok, I'm sorry. I thought I lost you, I didn't know what to do, come on, come on, how crazy must I be to cheat, ok that ain't me. (Dead silence. Aaron stands up and starts to talk louder and faster). You know what? I'm not the one who wanted to run away and hide when things got rough, I wasn't the one who began that argument; I was the one who was trying to hold our relationship together. After that fight, I did whatever I could to make things sparkle again in our relationship. After trying as hard as I could I went weak and helpless, and ended up sleeping with that woman, but that wouldn't have happened if you didn't start that argument and made our relationship complicated. ...read more.


Emma What did I know? (In a gentle tone of voice). (Aaron puts his hands on Emma's shoulders). Aaron Look, there has to be a way to get round this. I don't wanna lose you, not now. Not after the time we've had together. I can't imagine life without you. (Aaron kneels down and hugs her legs). (Pause). Emma I used to think of you as someone who would never, ever hurt me. You were what kept me going after my mum died. You were the one who kept me going when I needed a shoulder to cry on. I used to think the world of you. I thought as long as I' am with you, nothing can then go wrong. Boy was I wrong. Now it's like every time I see you, I picture her and I remember what you did. Things have just changed. (Pause). Although I have gotten stronger and the wound has heeled, there remains a permanent reminder. A scar, which will never go away. I guess what I'm trying to say is. (Pause). Its over. Anthony McCabe page 4 (Aaron stands up, slowly turns around and starts to walk towards the door. He gets to the door and opens it, then takes one last look at Emma and leaves.) ...read more.

  1. Discuss Emma from Jane Austen s' Emma.

    Knightly states that imagination is nonsense; this is ironic as it opposes "sense" against "imagination" Jane Austen lets poetic justice take place in the novel towards the disclosure at the end, as this shows the procedure Emma needs to go through and the developments that need to be made in order to get the 'perfect ending'.

  2. Jane Austen's presentation of Emma as an unlikeable heroine

    Austen has made Emma different to anyone in this book and has perhaps made her more of a modern heroine, for our time. Besides this, her being more modern and having modern views makes her a heroine for her time.
