This post is from many years ago….just after my initial hospitalization and diagnosis.
Well, after the latest life events, I now look at that movie from a different perspective. The first few times I saw that movie, I was thinking “OMG” through parts of it and in amazement that people thought certain ways or that they behaved certain ways. Now, part of it had me thinking “omg” with a chuckle.
Some favorite lines:
“Susanna, you chased a bottle of asprin with a bottle of vodka”…..”I had a headache.”
“You know, taking us for ice creams in a blizzard… makes you wonder who the real whack jobs are?”
“engages in casual sex. what sex isn’t casual?” …. “they mean you’re permiscuous!”
“So, what’s your diag-nonsense?”
“You’re ther-rapist, sweet pea”
“Yeah, well that’s what ther-rape-me’s all about. That’s why fuckin’ Freud’s picture’s on every shrink’s wall. He created a fuckin’ industry. You lie down, you confess your secrets and you’re saved. Ca-ching! The more you confess, the more they think about settin’ you free.”
“Social contrariness and a generally pessimistic attitude are often observed.”
…”Well that’s me”…”That’s everybody.”
Susanna: I’m ambivalent. In fact that’s my new favorite word.
Dr. Wick: Do you know what that means, ambivalence?
Susanna: I don’t care.
Dr. Wick: If it’s your favorite word, I would’ve thought you would…
Susanna: It *means* I don’t care. That’s what it means.
“Some advice, okay? Just don’t point your fuckin’ finger at crazy people!”
“You need a rest.” …”Yea. I think i’m going to go home and take a nap”
I tell you…. This movie takes on a whole new meaning.
Now for a few quotes from law school…..I have a few quotes now from my professor. He has made these last few Wednesdays quite a joy…
“how could somebody be so stupid? Could you really feel bad when you can’t defend them because they were so stupid?”
“Thats whats wrong with the world today. its all going downhill because we use bullet-points in our writing.”
“That was a joke. you are supposed to laugh.”
