If Tom had learned anything... it was that you can't ascribe great cosmic significance to a simple earthly event. Coincidence. That's all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence.
Tom: do you know what sucks? Realizing that everything you believe in is complete and
utter bullshit . it sucks
Summer: what do you mean?
Tom: yeah you know , destiny , soulmate, true love and all of childhood’s fairytale. Nonsense. You were right , I should had listened to you.
Tom: yeah , why are you smiling at ?
Summer: well you know , i guess is because i was sitting in the deli and reading dorian gray and a guy came up to me and asked me about it, and now he’s my husband.
Tom: yeah so ?
Summer: what if i’d gone to the movies ? what if i had gone somewhere else to lunch ? what if i’d got there ten minutes later? It was, it was meant to be. And i was thinking, Tom was right.
It just wasn’t me that you’re right about.
