The Affair Quotes

Woman: You know you don't have the best reputation around this stuff, right?
Noah: That was in college. That was 30 years ago.
Woman: That's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about your current reputation Noah... in the community.
Noah: What community?
Woman: The publishing world. You're seen as something of a loose cannon.
Noah: What? Why?
Woman: Well, you've had a storied past. You went to prison after all.
Noah: That's just fucking ridiculous ... I went to prison for my --
Woman: For what?
Noah: For my... I don't deserve that. I have the most boring fucking life. I work, I write, I see my kids, and I try to be a good person. That's it.
Woman: I know you do, but look, when you got out of prison, you were a little bit angry, right? A little bit bitter.
Noah: Sure, prison sucks.
Woman: Right, well do you remember teaching a class with a student named Audrey in it? Audrey Nelson.
Noah: Yeah, yeah I think.
Woman: Were you not very nice to her?
Noah: Well, I was as nice to her as I was to anyone else in that class. Why?
Woman: She's written a book.
Noah: Good for her.
Woman: Apparently, you're in it.
Noah: Really?
Woman: She doesn't name you directly, but it's a memoir about her abusive relationship with an older male professor. She's going around town telling people that the character is based on you.

So what Shakespeare is trying to say is that perfect love cannot sustain in an imperfect world.
