B-now who is crazy?
A-the moon is crazy, always has been
B-yes, it must pull the tide in always

B-enough to make anyone crazy
A-even without consciousness
B-i think something is funny
A-what?

A-i love you
B-i love you too
A-thank you for saying so
B-i love you so much
A-i feel the same
B-shall we make love?
