from Annie Hall

Woody Allen

...It was great seeing Annie again and I
realized what a terrific person she was and how
much fun it was knowing her and I thought of
that old joke, you know, this, this this guy goes
to a psychiatrist and says, Doc, uh, my brother's
crazy, he thinks he's a chicken and, uh, the
doctor says, well why don't you turn him in?  And
the guy says, I would, but I need the eggs.  Well, I
guess that's pretty much how I feel about
relationships.  You know, they're totally irrational
and crazy and absurd and, but uh, I guess we
keep going through it... because... most of
us need the eggs.
