Juno

Juno MacGuff: I’m just like losing my faith with humanity. 
Mac MacGuff: Can you can narrow that down for me? 
Juno MacGuff: I just wonder if like, two people can ever stay together for good. 
Mac MacGuff: You mean like couples? 
Juno MacGuff: Yeah, like people in love. 
Mac MacGuff: Are you having boy troubles? Because I gotta be honest with you; I don’t much approve of dating in your condition, ’cause well… that’s kind of messed up. 
Juno MacGuff: Dad, no! 
Mac MacGuff: Well, it’s kind of skanky. Isn’t that what you girls call it? Skanky? Skeevy? 
Juno MacGuff: Please stop. 
Mac MacGuff: [persisting] Tore up from the floor up? 
Juno MacGuff: That’s not what it’s about. I just need to know that it’s possible that two people can stay happy together forever
Mac MacGuff: Well, it’s not easy, that’s for sure. Now, I may not have the best track record in the world, but I have been with your stepmother for 10 years now and I’m proud to say that we’re very happy. 
[Juno nods] 
Mac MacGuff: Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with. 
Juno MacGuff: Yeah. And I think I’ve found that person. 
Mac MacGuff: Yeah sure you have – your old D-A-D! You know I’ll always be there to love you and support you no matter what kind of pickle you’re in… Obviously. 
[nods to her belly] 
Juno MacGuff: Dad, I think I’m just going to, like, shove out for a sec, but I won’t be home late. 
Mac MacGuff: Ok. You were talking about me right?
