Hey I'm Sara. 22 years old and I love Lost, Joanna Newsom, Fleet Foxes, Breaking Bad, FRIENDS, Boy Meets World, The Office, That 70's Show, Flight of the Conchords, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Miyazaki movies. Very wide range!
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.

You can’t handle his success because you’re not happy with your own life. You’re not satisfied, you’re anxious and you’re hungry. And you know, it’s show business, it’s a tough racket. What does that guy want? Flowers from poor people the second he gets rich? Screw that guy. I hated him.

—But I don’t like the feeling that I’m jealous. I don’t like the idea that I’m a jealous person.

So do something about it. Just go get on TV. Go get a show and be a star.

—Oh, okay, I’ll go get a TV show.

Yes, it is exactly that simple. Yes! Look. That guy is not special, he used to wash dishes, ok? He’s some nebbishy southwest jew, you’re a i don’t know what from wherever, none of you guys are special or magical, some of you are luckier and some of you work harder than others. You’re just guys. So you have to decide. You just gotta decide to go on TV, get a show, be a star, and then you and your friend can go lick each other’s balls and leave everybody alone already.

Louie is so well written I can’t TAKE IT
