« Can you see? The two lovers over here. The man with the hat and the red-haired girl. » 

What i find very interesting in the Nighthawks of Hopper is the couple at the bar who slightly touch their hands. Or maybe they’re strangers and they share important information for a dangerous mobster or maybe they’re cops and take a break after a long journey? Perhaps the barman who smile at them is a dangerous murderer and they’re going to catch him just after Madame had finished her peanuts?
