Golshifteh Farahani: Laura
Laura : Get any new writing done?
Paterson : I did a little, yeah. Working on a poem for you.
Laura : A love poem?
Paterson : Yeah, I guess if it's for you, it's a love poem. It's kind of inspired by our Ohio Blue Tip Matches.
Laura : Really? Does it mention the little megaphone shape the letters make?
Paterson : [taken aback] Yeah, actually it does.
Laura : How beautiful. I can't wait to read it when it's done.
Laura : You look a little drained. You were home a little late. Was your day okay?
Paterson : Well, it was until the bus broke down.
Laura : The bus broke down? Was it dangerous?
Paterson : No, it was just... it sputtered out. It was an electrical problem.
Laura : Electrical problem? Could it have exploded into a fireball?
Paterson : [chuckles] No, no. It's just an old bus.
Laura : Well, I think they should get their best driver who's also a great poet a brand new bus. It's the least they could do.
Paterson : City of Paterson? Not likely.
Laura : I know it's silly, but I'm so excited about the new farmers' market. Because if my cupcakes are a big sensation then I might be on my way to a very successful business.
Paterson : That would be amazing, honey.
Laura : And you know what else? My guitar should arrive today. My harlequin guitar direct from Esteban.
Paterson : Is Esteban gonna deliver it personally?
Laura : [laughs] Who knows?
Laura : Speaking of secret pie, I wanted to tell you something about your secret notebook.
Paterson : What?
Laura : Did you ever hear of the old Italian poet called... Petrarch? Is that it?
Paterson : Mmm, Petrarch. He perfected the sonnet.
Laura : I read online that one of his early books of poems was called 'The Secret Book', just like yours.
Paterson : I didn't know that! You read that. You just happened upon it online.
Laura : And also that he wrote all his love poems to a beautiful girl called... ta da! Laura!
Paterson : That's true!
Laura : So you have many things in common with other great and famous poets, you see?
Paterson : We're having pie for dinner?
Laura : Yeah, but a dinner pie.
Paterson : Oh.
Laura : What do you think's inside?
Paterson : Inside the secret pie? Uh... I don't know, fish?
Laura : No, not fish, silly! Want me to tell you?
Paterson : Yes please!
Laura : Okay.
Laura : Cheddar cheese and brussels sprouts.
Paterson : Seriously?
