Mrs. Robinson: Like what? 
Benjamin: What do you think? 
Mrs. Robinson: Well, I don't know. 
Benjamin: For god's sake, Mrs. Robinson. Here we are. You got me into your house. You give me a drink. You... put on music. Now you start opening up your personal life to me and tell me your husband won't be home for hours.
