BILLY: I was but not now.
SUSAN: Now you think it was a mistake to split up?
BILLY: Split up?
SUSAN: Hang on, haven't I got this right? Haven't you and Anne split up?
BILLY: Mum, I'm talking about Caitlin.
SUSAN: You've only just split up with Anne.
BILLY: I know but know I've split up with Anne.
SUSAN: You've been going out with Anne for ages.
SUSAN: You think you can hope from one girl to the next, just like that?
BILLY: I don't think that, I don't think anything, it just happened.
SUSAN: Is it so important that you have a girlfriend?
BILLY: What's that supposed to mean?
SUSAN: Well, what's wrong with being single and trying to work out what went wrong with Anne?
BILLY: I know what's wrong with Anne, it didn't work out!
SUSAN: And why was that?
BILLY: I don't know, it just happens.
SUSAN: I'm sorry, you've obviously put hours of thought into this.
