[After a 30 second interlude]
Frank: The other thing is, though, we each have a different borderline. We draw the lines at different points, at different angles...
Laura: That's very true, Frank.
Frank: And where I draw the line is not where you do it, and where you do it is not where I do it, so we're probably not going to agree on all of this.
Laura: But you got to the root of the problem, the problem of the tapes. You did know and that's why you didn't tell me...that I would not have liked that, though I may have, and you didn't respect the fact that I didn't.
Dave: That's probably true.
Frank: I don't think that's true.
Laura: I think it's true.
Frank: Because I don't mind, I didn't have the imagination to think you would.
Laura: Then why didn't you tell me?
Dave: Because telling you would have been no good. It would have denied the opportunity to get a spontaneous, candid statement on tape.
Laura: But that is purely unethical. [What's?/Where's?--word is indecipherable] the opportunity?
Dave: That's different.
Frank: That's begging the question. That's what we're talking about, whether or not it's unethical. I didn't think it was.
Laura: It was unethical.
Frank: But the point is, I didn't think it was.
Jean: I think Dave's right. I think there are two different questions.
Laura: What are the questions?
Jean: Well, whether or not it's ethical is different than whether or not, as he said, that you would be upset by it. They're two different things..
Laura: Yeah, I agree with you that he didn't think it through.
Dave: You were stupid, you weren't unethical.
Laura: No, inconsiderate, inconsiderate.
Frank: [Laughs] I did not think it through, that's for sure. In fact, it was a spur of the moment decision.
Jean: To push the button and see what would happen.
Frank: Yeah, it really was.
Laura: That's not true, you told me...
Jean: You could have pushed the other button if you had been more sensitive.
Laura: When you played it that you had decided to...
Frank: It crossed my mind. No, I was exaggerating.
