Love is Love is Love is Love (is)

Lucy: You’re in love?


Amanda: Yes.


Lucy: Fully in love?


Amanda: Yes


Lucy: With-


Amanda: Yes


Lucy: With a lampshade


Amanda: It’s not a lampshade, it’s a chandelier


Lucy: I stand corrected


Amanda: I only say that because it’s not a lampshade, a lampshade usually covers only one source of light and a chandelier has branches and can hold many lights. The differences are important.


Lucy: Could you love a lampshade?


Amanda: I couldn’t rule it out. But they don’t have the same depth as chandeliers. I’m sure they are very nice, I don’t want to offend or upset. I have a lampshade in my hallway, but he’s not the same as Lumiere.


Lucy: Lumiere?


Amanda: The one I’m going to marry.


Pause


Lucy: We need you to come home


Amanda: I’m making my commitment next week. We’re very excited.


Lucy: Mum is worried about you


Amanda: I don’t know why, I’ve never been happier.


Lucy: You can live with me for a while


Amanda: This is her, here. Isn’t she stunning?


Lucy: Amanda, come home


Amanda: I knew from the first moment I saw her that I wanted her. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much life in anything in all my life. I’m telling you this right now, the night I first saw her I forgot to eat. It wasn’t until the morning when I’d woken up that I’d realised. I decided to eat two breakfasts to make up for it.


Lucy: Amanda, you’re not even listening to me


Amanda: Lumeire and I are incredibly happy together. She lights up my life

Lucy: Literally


Amanda: And I know the feeling is mutual. She’s there for me and I am for her.


Lucy: Lumiere is a boy’s name


Amanda: Sorry?


Lucy: Lumiere is the name of the candlestick in Beauty and the Beast, and he’s a boy.

Amanda: When did you become a conformist?


Lucy: A conformist?


Amanda: My Lumiere is a girl


Lucy: So you’re a lesbian now?


Amanda: I’m happy
