    _________________________

    A woman in the street browsing a smart phone.
    She seems to be talking on the mobile phone.
    A man approaches her...


    Woman: You constantly gather statistics on yourself, Marks, and generally these figures are a source of pride.
    But...


    Marks: I don't know your name. You should've introduced yourself.

    Woman: Forgive me. I am Lucille.
    The name Lucille is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Lucille is Light.
    The name Lucille is an American baby name. In America the meaning of the name Lucille is also Light.
    Do you like the name Lucille ?.
    ...


    Marks: What were you saying before I interrupted, Lucille?.

    Lucille: You constantly gather statistics on yourself, Marks, and generally these figures are a source of pride.
    But...
    You said that, not me.
    ...
    You said that, not me, Marks.
    ...
    You said that, not me.
    ...
    Don't mislead me being here, either toward fact or fiction,... just draw your own conclusions.
    ...
    You were trying to put it into writing while the details were fresh in your mind.
    Just try to put it into... statistics ... while the details are fresh in your mind...
    While I still fresh in your mind... because I am only in your mind...
    ...
    Do you want me to speak with more and more emotion about dark romanticism ?.
    I am often forced to pause and revive myself... just like a ghost...
    Is there any supernatural realm out of control ?
    ...


    Marks: I constantly gather statistics on myself and generally these figures are a source of pride.

    Lucille: Pride made you artificial and your humility made me real. Your indifference made me real.
    ...
    For some unknown reason...
    I heard you say to yourself; *You got some of your facts forgotten, Marks. And someone will get those facts wrong*
    ...
    That was how I knew your name.
    ...
    Someone got those facts wrong. Someone is getting those facts wrong.... Statistical errors...
    A null hypothesis... roughly speaking, the assumption of no effect,...
    the hypothesis you typically set out to disprove in favor of the ... alternative hypothesis... when in fact the null hypothesis is true.
    Failing to reject the null hypothesis, you like accepting the null hypothesis, when in fact the null hypothesis is false.



    Marks: You worked in "Stains Out", the laundry shop...

    Lucille: I worked in that laundry shop for only one month. February 2011. I don't remember you.
    We didn't become friends.
    Maybe you liked me. Yes, yes,... you must've liked me.
    Did you want to date me ?.
    Wait a minute,... ...
    Do I represent your odd ideas ?... Are we spies ?... Is it a spy ring ? ...
    ... Am I a mantra yoga individual committing espionage with you ?.
    Freak... freak. Freak Marks.
    ...
    What else is there ?.
    ...
    I am an ovum that is awakened at daybreak by your odd spermatozoons which make their way to get into...
    ... my contemplative practices or inner explorations.
    ...
    What if it is a movie ?. How does this movie end ?...
    The script wouldn't be able to move on out of a cul-de-sac, or labyrinth, maze,...
    ...
    Woody Allen's *Everything You Always Wanted to Know About... Screenwriters... But Were Afraid to Ask...*
