We're having pie for dinner?
Laura: Yeah, but a dinner pie.
Laura: What do you think's inside?
Paterson: Inside the secret pie? Uh... I don't know, fish?
Laura: No, not fish, silly! Want me to tell you?
Paterson: Yes please!
Laura: Cheddar cheese and brussels sprouts.
After Paterson has come home on the first Monday, there is a shot of Laura adjusting the curtains she had just decorated. She then walks into the kitchen. There's a shot of Paterson sitting down on the couch, and the very next shot is her back at the curtains, this time admiring them. Some would think that she would've had to be very fast to get all the way back to the curtains in time, however between the shot of Paterson sitting down on the couch, and the very next shot of Laura back at the curtains, admiring them there is an Ellipsis. Repetitions and ellipses are two of the most identity trademarks of Jarmusch's style.
