The only way you can beat my crazy was by doing something crazy yourself. Thank you. I love you. I knew it the minute I met you. I’m sorry it took so long for me to catch up. I just got stuck.

The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That’s guaranteed. I can’t begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday’s my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy.

This is what I learned at the hospital. You have to do everything you can, you have to work your hardest, and if you do, if you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining.
– Pat

Let me tell you, I know you don’t want to listen to your father, I didn’t listen to mine, and I am telling you you gotta pay attention this time. When life reaches out at a moment like this it’s a sin if you don’t reach back, I’m telling you its a sin if you don’t reach back! It’ll haunt you the rest of your days like a curse. You’re facing a big challenge in your life right now at this very moment, right here. That girl loves you she really really loves you. I don’t know if Nicki ever did, but she sure as shit doesn’t right now. So don’t fuck this up.
– Pat Sr.

I opened up to you, and you judged me.

– Tiffany

I’m just the crazy slut, with a dead husband! Fuck you!
– Tiffany

Yeah, have Ernest Hemingway call us and apologize to us too.
– Pat Sr.

Humanity is just nasty and there’s no silver lining.

It can still be a date if you order raisin bran.

Wait, what’s this?
– Pat
I thought you were doing it.
– Tiffany
I thought you were doing it.

You have poor social skills. You have a problem.
– Pat
I have a problem? You say more inappropriate things than appropriate things.
– Tiffany

How old are you?
– Pat
Old enough to have a marriage end and not wind up in a mental hospital.
– Tiffany

You’re killing me!
– Tiffany

Can we get through one fucking conversation without you reminding me that my goddamn husband’s dead?
– Tiffany

Black it up, Pat.

You let me lie to you for a week?
– Tiffany
I was trying to be romantic.
