Me and You and Everyone We Know is a poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and “Eldercab” driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard's seven-year-old Robby, who is having a risqué internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen- year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls— practicing for their future
of romance and marriage.
In July's modern world, the mundane is transcendent and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek together-ness through tortured routes and find redemption in small moments that connect them to someone
else on earth.
Robby: Say, "You poop into my butt hole and I poop into your butt hole... back and forth... forever."
Christine Jesperson: [seeing his bandage] Whoa, what happened?
Richard Swersey: You want the short version or the long one?
Christine Jesperson: The long one.
Richard Swersey: I tried to save my life but it didn't work.
Christine Jesperson: Wow. What's the short one?
Richard Swersey: I burned it.
Christine Jesperson: If you really love me, let's make a vow - right here, together... right now.
Untitled: Are you touching yourself?
NightWarrior: [looks down at fingertips touching on edge of desk] Yes.
Robby: Ask her if she likes baloney.
Richard Swersey: I don't want to have to do this living. I just walk around. I want to be swept off my feet, you know? I want my children to have magical powers. I am prepared for amazing things to happen. I can handle it.
Richard Swersey: You know some kids don't even have one home and now you get to have two. Think about that.
Richard Swersey: We will never touch your foot with our hands. Now i'll tell you what I can do, I can press on the shoe to see if it fits. I can go like this. [presses the toe of the shoe]
Christine Jesperson: We have a whole life to live together you fucker, but it can't start until you call.
Richard Swersey: You think you deserve that pain but you don't.
Christine Jesperson: I mean, they kind of rub my ankles, but all shoes does that. I have low ankles.
Richard Swersey: You think you deserve that pain, but you don't.
Christine Jesperson: I don't think I deserve it.
Richard Swersey: Well, not consciously maybe.
Christine Jesperson: My ankles are just low...
Richard Swersey: People think that foot pain is a fact of life, but life is actually better than that.
Michael: I'll say. You should get some. Your whole life could be better. Just starting right now.
Christine Jesperson: Call me, if you ever feel too old to drive.

Sylvie: You want to be a little bird and get a little worm? Just lie down and peep.
Robby: Peep, peep, peep.
Christine Jesperson: Fuck! Fuck you! Fuck me! Fuck old people! Fuck children! Fuck peace! Fuck peace...
Richard Swersey: [after taking off the bandage from his hand] It needs air. It needs to do some living. Let's take my hand for a walk.
Andrew: Dude, did you just give her the family discount?
Richard Swersey: Yeah. She's my neighbor, and I'm trying to work on my karma. Do you know what karma means?
Richard Swersey: It means that she owes me one.
Michael: I just wish I had met her 50 years sooner.
Christine Jesperson: Yeah.
Michael: But then maybe I needed 70 years of life to be ready for a woman like Ellen.
Heather: But this is better 'cause it won't matter if we mess up. And we'll be together.
Peter Swersey: So, do you have anything new in the chest? You know, the hope chest.
Sylvie: Soup won't be computerized.
Housewares Saleswoman: Why's that?
Sylvie: It's a liquid.
Peter Swersey: I'd live up there if I could, if there was no gravity
Sylvie: Yeah, but if you lived up there, all the stuff in my room would fall on you and crush you and you'd die
Christine Jesperson: But she's the love of your life, You're just going to let her go?
Michael: No, she's just going...
Nancy: Email wouldn't even exist if it weren't for AIDS.
Robby: Mom says we have a chore wheel.
Richard Swersey: What?
Peter Swersey: Nothing.
Robby: A chore wheel. You put chores on it and then you can spin it. There's this metal thing and it helps it to spin. It's spinning from the metal.
