"Do You Love Me"

For all you "Fiddler On The Roof" fans:

Do you love me?

TASHA
Do I what?


JOSH
Do you love me?

TASHA
Do I love you?

JOSH
Well?


TASHA
With our daughter turning six
And there's trouble in the world
You're upset, you're worn-out
Go inside, go lie down
Maybe it's indigestion!

JOSH
Tasha, I'm asking you a question
Do you love me?

TASHA
You're a fool!

JOSH
I know! But do you love me?

TASHA
Do I love you?

JOSH
Well?

TASHA
For nine years I have washed your clothes
Cooked your meals, cleaned the house
Given you children, milked your cow bought your milk at the store
After nine years, why talk about love right now?

JOSH
Tasha, the first time I saw you
Was in the praise team band
I was scared

TASHA
I was shy

JOSH
I was nervous

TASHA
So was I

JOSH
But my father and my mother said
We'd learn to love each other
So now I'm asking you, Tasha
Do you love me?

TASHA
I'm your wife!

JOSH
I know! But do you love me?


TASHA
Do I love him?

JOSH
Well?

TASHA
For nine years I have lived with him
Fought with him, starved with him
Nine years my bed is his
If that's not love, what is?

JOSH
Then you love me!

TASHA
I suppose I do

JOSH
And I suppose I love you, too

JOSH & TASHA
It doesn't change a thing
But even so -
After nine years
It's nice to know

Happy Anniversary, Josh.  I do love you with all my heart!  You are my favorite...
