Hey! Lenina I am really glad that we are finally meeting.
Hey bernard lets go have some fun!!
This is a waste of time, i'd rather go on walks or be alone to talk.
Why his behavior is so odd?
Doesn't this make you feel free?
After a lot of thinking, Lenina finally decides to go out with Bernard knowing how odd he is.
Bernard - Isn't it all beautiful, grayness and vastness of waves
We get to see their first date. Bernard considers all her suggestions as being "a waste of time." He wants to go for walks, to be alone, to talk.
Lenina - Take me away from the rushing emptiness of the water. I hate it!!
Lenina finds Bernard's habits strange, such as his desire to spend time alone, and to spend time alone with her. He rejects the popular games and activities, saying that they are too crowded and he'd rather talk to her alone.
I wish we hadn't gone to bed together and that we delayed it.
Bernard feels that the reality makes him feel free and as if he is more himself. He wants Lenina to share these feelings but, she can't.
Lenina is terrified and finds the scene horrible. She doesn't know what he means by "free" She even offers him a soma. On the way home, Bernard starts to laughs thinking that Lenina wouldn't understand how he feels.
Retuning home they both slept together after taking a lot of soma but BernardBernard confides that he wishes they had waited to have sex and it was too soon.
