Movies in Fifteen Minutes: Dracula (1979)
SEWARD: Too bad we won't be able to go to the Count's for dinner tonight--I have to meet Van Helsing at the station.
LUCY: Dinner? Count? What?
SEWARD: Oh, it must have totally slipped my mind, and I'm sure Harker didn't mention it because he's a jealous goob. Anyway. Dinner. Count's. Tonight. Can't make it.
LUCY: No, no, you go meet Dr. Van Helsing and I'll go be dinner for the Count.
LUCY: I said, I'll go have dinner with the Count.
SEWARD: Oh. Okay. Well, clearly, we're extremely progressive Edwardians who don't mind young women hanging out with their fiancés while in their nightgowns, so I can't imagine why I'd object to you having dinner with a sexy vampire all by yourself. Have fun!

IMDB: "'Catwoman' Was Therapy for Heartbroken Halle"
* Catwoman helped Halle Berry cope with her husband Eric Benet's cheating ways because the character helped her escape her messy private life. Appearing on Oprah Winfrey's chat show in America tomorrow, Berry will reveal reports of her estranged husband Eric Benet's philandering were true - and she used her Catwoman character as therapy to deal with the heartache. She says, "I so needed to be Catwoman in that moment. I so needed to make some tough life decisions for myself, and putting on that suit made it a whole lot easier." Berry also tells Winfrey that she'll never wed again after two failed marriages to baseball player David Justice and soul singer Benet. She adds, "I always hate to say never to anything, but I will never marry again. It's probably the first time the tabloids got my life right." *
