You have to let the people you love know that you love them, even if it causes you a great deal of pain.
When you’re young, you think that everybody out there really, really gets you. But, you know, actually, only a handful of them do. All the people who like you, despite your faults. And then if you discard them, they will never come back. So, when you meet those people, you should just hold on to them. Really, really tightly. And don’t let them go.
When you love a person, there’s always a tiny part of you that’s terrified that one day you’re gonna lose them.
Just try and stay honest. Because once you start lying, it’s very hard to stop.[Otis Milburn: How do I not become an a***hole?]
Hey, Maeve. I know you can’t answer this right now because I’m watching you on live TV. But I wanted you to know how proud of you I am. And how unbelievably stupid I’ve been. You telling me you had feelings for me was… was all I wanted to hear, and… I was so caught up in trying to do the right thing, I lost track of what that actually is. It’s you. It’s always been you. I love you, Maeve. Call me back. I hope it’s not too late…[voicemail]
Why celebrate the day I got pushed out of some random vagina against my will?[Otis Milburn: No one hates birthdays, Maeve.]
