Big Picture Lyrics


by . From Ordinary Days.


DEB
Iíll have a mocha caramel latte-chino
Made with skim milk, no whipped cream
Please put that in a grande cup
But use the same amount of coffee that youíd put into a tall
That way thereís about an inch of extra room on top
To stir in my own nutmeg without spilling any coffee at all
What do you want?

WARREN
Iíll have a tea.

DEB
What kind?

WARREN
Just. Tea?

DEB
Heíll have your green Darjeeling tea,
Which Iím sure you know cannot be steeped for more than ninety-five seconds.
Shall we?
So, whatís your deal?

WARREN
My what?

DEB
Your deal. What are you about?

WARREN
Well, Iím about five foot five, I guess.
You really donít find me funny at all.

DEB
Funny, yes. Amusing, no.
But seriously, Warren, I want to know.
Describe to me your big picture

WARREN
Well, thereís this Picasso

DEB
Donít start.
Everyoneís got a big picture.
Something they shoot for that sets them apart.
Weíve all got an awful lot to do before weíre dead.
So, where do you see yourself in, say, five years?

WARREN
I havenít thought that far ahead.

DEB
Are you gonna be serious?

WARREN
Do I have to.
Well. I work for an artist.

DEB
Tell me what you do.

WARREN
I donít know, I watch his cat.
And this morning I fixed his curtain rod.

DEB
Sure, okay, that pays the rent
But that is not exactly what I meant
When I asked to hear your big picture
Something beyond your daily routine
Talk about your big picture
The fairy tale ending that youíve always seen
I am sure thereís something more to you than doing chores
Everyoneís got a big picture in mind

WARREN
So, whatís yours?

DEB
Well, since you asked.
In five years Iíll have an amazing apartment
With bookshelves built into the walls
A window that looks out on someplace big
And a personal assistant who screens my calls
The book I write will be required reading
To get into the seminars that Iíll be leading
Thatís the plan, as far as I can see it.
And yet it isnít quite apparent what Iím supposed to do to get it.
Some big picture.
Howís your tea?

WARREN
My what?

DEB
Your tea?

WARREN
Oh, itís sort ofÖ gotten cold.

DEB
These stupid baristas donít know how to heat a proper Ė

WARREN
Deb, itís really okay.
Look, I know that we just met.
But it seems to me that maybe you might wanna get
Some perspective on this big picture
Big, after all, is a relative term.
Maybe this whole big picture
Shouldnít be something on which you stand firm
Youíre in a rut, who cares, so what?
If your pictureís not quite clear.
I mean, you and me and lukewarm tea.
This could be your really big picture right here.

DEB
Oh my God, youíre right.

WARREN
See?

DEB
Sitting here at Starbucks drinking mediocre coffee with a professional cat sitter is all my life is going to amount to.

WARREN
Thatís not really what I meant.

DEB
No, itís okay, Iím a strong woman, I can handle it.
Oh my God, what time is it?
I have to go.

JASON
Where are you going, Claire?

WARREN
You donít have to go.

CLAIRE
Please donít Ė

JASON
Claire, stop.

DEB
Yes, I do, Iím late for my appointment.

CLAIRE
Not now.

WARREN
Deb, thereís something I want to show you.

JASON
You canít just leave me in the rain and hope that things will wash away.

DEB
I canít. Not now. Yes, later, Warren. I promise, later, Warren.

JASON
Promise me. Would you just then. Donít you want to -
Jesus, Claire.
Where are you going, Claire?
Canít you just talk to me, Claire?
