& Marshall Brickman

Alvy as young boy sits on a sofa with his mother in an old-fashioned,
cluttered doctor's office. The doctor stands near the sofa, holding a
cigarette and listening.

MOTHER (To the doctor)
He's been depressed. All off a sudden,
he can't do anything.

DOCTOR (Nodding)
Why are you depressed, Alvy?

MOTHER (Nudging Alvy)
Tell Dr. Flicker.
(Young Alvy sits, his head down.
His mother answers for him)
It's something he read.

DOCTOR (Puffing on his cigarette and
Something he read, huh?

ALVY (His head still down)
The universe is expanding.

The universe is expanding?
ALVY (Looking up at the doctor)
Well, the universe is everything, and if
it's expanding, someday it will break apart
and that would be the end of everything!

Disgusted, his mother looks at him.

MOTHER (shouting)
What is that your business?
(she turns back to the doctor)
He stopped doing his homework.

What's the point?

MOTHER (Excited, gesturing with her hands)
What has the universe got to do with it?
You're here in Brooklyn! Brooklyn is not expanding!

DOCTOR (Heartily, looking down at Alvy)
It won't be expanding for billions of years
yet, Alvy. And we've gotta try to enjoy
ourselves while we're here. Uh?

He laughs.
