"Real Talk w/ Brain and Heart (Feat. Lung)"
Brain: I LOVE doing this BUT I am not good enough yet. DAMMIT!
Brain: I LOVE DOING THIS and I AM good enough now. WOOHOO!
Brain goes up against itself like two very large, dramatic men in a WWF match.
Brain gets tired. It is tired and board of arguing with itself. Heart rings the door bell.
Brain: Who is it?
Brain: What do you want?
Heart: I want to help you with your anxiety by taking some of the energy from you, you know, the energy going into over thinking and self referencing. I want to take that energy and use it to juice myself up. I feel deprived.
Brain: You can't have that energy from me. I need it. What will be the result? I need to figure this out before I let anything go to you! The truth is...very important.
Brain: That's it.
Heart: Yes, it's simple. Let go of that energy, let me have some and I promise you'll feel better. That's the truth.
Brain/Heart: Who is it?
Brain: Uh oh.
Heart: Come in!
Lungs: Hellooooo --
Heart: It's been forever -- Oh, I've missed you!
Lungs: Breath of life, baby.
Brain: Who are you calling baby? I am nobody's baby. You know, I was trying to concentrate and figure a few things out here on my own. Who invited you anyway?
Heart: What's the difference?
Brain: I want to know. I want to know who brought you both upstairs. Was it Pituitary!? He's obsessed with my growth.
Heart: Come here.
Brain takes two steps towards Heart.
Heart: YOU MUST CHILL.
Brain: Say Anything. 1989. Best movie ever made.
Heart: Great, I'm glad we agree on something.
Brain: I am scared because I don't KNOW where everything is going. There are so many choices! There are so many players and it's hard to tell who you can trust. I can't assess things because I don't know all the pieces to the puzzle, so I feel like I did when I was in middle school and you get a one lone puzzle piece to carry with you to the carnival where the giant gig zaw puzzle is displayed next to the cotton candy. You show it to them and they slide it in, which is a relief, but you still can't see the whole thing. I like cotton candy.
Heart: Cotton candy is really good.
Brain: Yes but it's very bad for your teeth. Sugar, in general. Cotton candy, in particular.
Heart: Where ya going? You're distracted. Come on back.
Brain: Can someone ask him to leave, please?
Heart: Hey, lungs, could you please just take it down a notch?
Lungs: No worries.
Heart: Thank you, sweets.
Heart: As I was saying. Your chilling out would be reallllly, really good at this point for a number of reasons, but let's just start with how nice it feels to have love and air as opposed to stress coursing through your entire body. Think less. Just know you can't do it without me, you can't do it without Lungs and you can't do it unless you ADMIT your way isn't working.
Lungs has an urge to grab for the white flag on a pole prop but this is a low-no budget production and there isn't one.
Lungs: It's about surrender! Word.
Heart: That's right.
Heart: And, letting go. Wheeeeee!!!!!
Lungs: Woooshh ---
Heart: Lungs, I've got this!
Heart: Who knew he can be such a scene stealer?! AH, I'm so sorry. Lungs, I LOVE YOU. I really love you.
Brain: I am beginning to understand. I wonder what the best split is -- maybe 60/40 Heart to Lung or perhaps the inverse, a little more Lung and a little less Heart.
Heart: No split, just balance. Look, I've got to get going here but the bottom line is there is nothing to figure out and I want you to just trust ME
Lungs: And meeeee, ahhhhh!!!
Heart: and Lungs
Heart: which will allow US to lead YOU into a life that makes ME sing, LUNGS breathe freely and YOU
Heart: into great and powerful USE since your energy will be on the work that you are so wonderfully good at -- do you understand?
Brain: YES. :)
Heart: That's what I like. Now boogie!!
