The clip amanda meets graham from The Holiday (2006) with Cameron Diaz, Jude Law
Who is it?
It's me. Hurry up. It's freezing.
Iris, open the door or I swear I'm gonna take a leak all over your...
You're not Iris.
Or if you are, I'm much drunker than I realized.
I'm sorry for my profanity.
I wasn't expecting you.
Well, I wasn't expecting you either.
Nevertheless, may I just...?
Yeah. Of course. Sure. You had to... Yeah.
I'm Graham. Iris' brother.
I'm Amanda Woods. I'm staying here.
Amandawoods? Is that all one word?
No. No, it's not.
Brother? Oh, my God.
So Iris is... Where is...? Where is she?
She didn't tell you?
She could have done but as previously stated I'm... I've just... I've been...
She's in Los Angeles.
That's not possible. Iris never goes anywhere.
Well, we have that in common.
No, she listed this cottage on a home-exchange website and I found it.
We switched houses for two weeks. For the holiday.
She's in L.A. at my house and I'm here.
People actually do that?
Yeah. I mean, it seems. Here I am in my pajamas.
She did ring me last night. I didn't get a chance to get back to her.

"I'm not sure I can handle complicated"?
Oh, God, I can be such a jerk.
She pushed every guy away, every time.
It's not, "Will she ever change" but, "Does she want to?"
Yeah, it is. Hi.
Hi. So I was home doing nothing and thinking of you and I realized that a little complication never hurt anyone.
And then I thought, maybe this isn't so complicated at all.
And also, I wanted to apologize.
I am sorry I didn't invite you in this afternoon.
I don't know what that was about exactly but whatever it was, I thought that I should just...
Oh, my God. You're, you're not alone, are you?
No, I'm not, actually.
No. No, no, no. Don't be.
I shouldn't have just... Oh, man.
Okay, seriously, do not worry about this.
This is just me, like, being stupid.
Who is it, Daddy?
I am Daddy.

It's okay, just stop.
