Life in High Fidelity

Really loved this exchange on "Louie" last night.

  • Dr. Bigelow: So you took a chance on being happy even though you knew that later on you would be sad?
  • Louie: Yeah.
  • Bigelow: And now you're sad?
  • Louie: *nods* yeah.
  • Bigelow: So what's the problem?
  • Louie: I'm too sad. [pause] Look, I liked the feeling of being in love with her, I liked it. But now she's gone and I miss her and it sucks, and I didn't think it was gonna be this bad, and I feel like why even be happy if it's just gonna lead to this? It wasn't worth it.
  • Bigelow: Misery is wasted on the miserable.
  • Louie: What?
  • Bigelow: You know, I'm not entirely sure what your name is, but you are a classic idiot. You think spending time with her, kissing her, having fun with her, you think that's what it was all about? That was love?
  • Louie: Yeah!
  • Bigelow: This is love. Missing her because she's gone, wanting to die; you're so lucky, you're like a walking poem. Would you rather be some kind of a fantasy, some kind of a Disney ride? Is that what you want? Don't you see this is the good part, this is what you've been digging for all this time. Now you finally have it in your hands, and this sweet nugget of love - sweet, sad, love - and you wanna throw it away. You've got it all wrong.
  • Louie: I thought this was the bad part?
  • Bigelow: No!! The bad part is when you forget her, when you don't care about her, when you don't care about anything. The bad part is coming so enjoy the heartbreak while you can, for god sakes.

idk man it just makes me so so so sad when you’re watching a cutiepie talk about their passion like when they light up and start bubbling over with words and then all of a sudden they stop themselves and say stuff like “sorry, i know this is boring” or “sorry i just got excited”

like you know somewhere in their life someone they respected told them “shut up nobody cares” and ever since they can’t talk about their favorite things without apologizing every 5 seconds

She tells me that she thought I was cute, a word that no one has ever previously used in connection with me, and soulful, by which I think she means that I don’t say much and I always look vaguely pissed off.

I hate when people say “women should leave some things to the imagination” like WTF do y’all think women are hiding under their shirt? A baby goat??? The Bridge to Terabithia?? Get the fuck…
