Rachel: But honestly…I see little of HH in you.
Placain: I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or an insult.
Rachel: You have too much life, too much spontaneity. You also get a little too involved in your romantic charges to control them the way HH does.
Placain: Hmm. True. He’s very detached and observational.
Placain: Whereas I actually get attached.
Rachel: I think you identify with the yearning and manipulative parts a bit - we all identify abit - but honestly, Daniel, you don’t know French. HH has to suck in the end. Little girls might actually like you.
