Can anyone help with a piece of dialogue in Arrival?

Louise has just met up with Ian after she goes in the ship alone. He wraps a blanket around her and ushers her into the pickup. She then explains something about a reason for all of this and Ian mutters something about being married (before?).

Can anyone give me the precise dialogue and explain what it was about?


1 Answer 1


As she is put into the truck, Louise has a vision of her future with her daughter...

As the vision ends she says.

LOUISE: I just realized why my husband left me. My husband left me.

IAN: You were married?

The script can be found here and here.
