GEORGE: You’ve never really looked at me.
AMALIA: I’m looking at you right now- and shall I tell you what I see? A smug, pompous, petty tyrant-very sure of himself and very ambitious.
But I see him ten years from now- selling shampoo.
And twenty years from now-selling shampoo.
And thirty years from now still selling shampoo!
Because, basically, you know what he is? Just a not-very-bright, not-very-handsome, not-very-young man with balding hair and the personality of a python!
Is this a couple you want to get together? Oddly enough yes.
She Loves Me is a rare romcom where neither of the sparring lovers has to rewrite their personality to come together at the final curtain. By setting them in a larger workplace drama we see the tensions that are causing them to lash out and the good qualities that will make them compatible when they take the time to really see each other. The show loses money in a large house but delights in a black box.
