Watching the Godfather II With Geoff for 15 Minutes Like . . .

Scene: 9:00 p.m., Paige is sleeping over a friend's house. Geoff is tired and lying on the couch watching TV. I've just put Isaac to sleep in our bed. I emerge to eat popcorn and see what's going on.

Me: [Through mouthful of popcorn] Is this The Godfather?

Geoff: Two.

Me: Two what?

Geoff: It's The Godfather Part II.

Me: What happens in that one again?

Geoff: Dude. We're not doing this right now.

Me: This was the only sequel that won an Oscar I think. Did you know that?

Geoff: Uh-uh.

Me: [Sits down on other couch with popcorn, 3 minutes elapse] I actually don't think I've ever watched all of the Godfather movies. Like I've only ever seen parts of each of them.

Geoff: Uh-huh.

Me: Is that Al Pacino?

Geoff: Yes.

Me: Is Robert DeNiro in this one?

Geoff: Yes.

Me: Are you sure?

Geoff: AH!! Yes. He plays the YOUNG Vito Corleone in this one. It's a split narrative. Some of the movie takes place in New York in the early 1900s and the rest takes place in Lake Tahoe and Havana I think.

Me: What's the name of Al Pacino's character again? 

Geoff: Michael Corelone.

Me: Wait . .  Who's that guy?

Geoff: Hyman Roth.

Me: Who's he?

Geoff: He's a Jewish mobster.

Me: Is he double-crossing Michael?

Geoff: AAAAHHHH I said I'm not doing this!!! 

Me: Okay okay fine sorry. [5 minutes later] Is Marlon Brando in these movies? 

Geoff: No.

Me: Who did he play again?

Geoff: Vito Corleone.

Me: Wait is he the guy played by Robert DeNiro when he's young? Or is that someone else? Is he dead in real life?

Geoff: Do I look like Wikipedia?



Me: [sees popcorn is gone]. OMG this movie is so boring. I'm going back to sleep.
