         (Ariana has listened to Isaac's explanation of how much he loves infinity - and she is the one shaking her head now.)

ARIANA 0 Amazing!  You think, in some incredibly odd way, that the only infinite thing in this numbers!  My God!  If I think about it ...I get sick!

         (She keeps shaking her head and then she stops, eyes opening wide in sudden understanding)

ARIANA - Wait a minute.....I just realized something, why you think this've never been in love!

          (He is embarrassed, turns away)

ARIANA 0 It's ok, I mean, you're still young, you have time.....but maybe I can say it in a different way, something you can you love your mother?

         (He nods)

ISAAC -  Of course I love my mother!

ARIANA -  And she loves you.....and that love is big enough to fill this whole universe....

ISAAC -  Now you're talking about something that can't be seen!

ARIANA -  You can't see oxygen, but you know it's there!  Because when it's not there, you die!  It's the same with love!  Without love something in you dies!  Love is the source of all power in this universe.....and love is so powerful  that from the moment you love someone, you understand everything!  And nothing!  Love is always the best educator!  When you're born, you love your mother - and your father - and the people who take care of you - more than anything in the world!  Because you have to, they are the ones keeping you alive!  And then you realize, there are a lot of people in this big world, can choose to love someone else.....someone not in your family......a friend.....and then one day, you find a person, more than a friend, and when it hits you, that you love that person, more than any other person in the world.....that, my friend, is when you understand the real idea of ...infinity, because your love has no boundary, it is infinite.....and when you add yourself to that other person, you get, one......

           (She takes his face in her hands and kisses him, then, surprised at her feelings, she leaves as he watches her.   He touches his lips with one hand and smiles.  Lights down)
