I watched a movie tonight, one that I've been looking forward to seeing for a while now. It's called HappyThankYouMorePlease. It had a good cast and an awesome soundtrack. While I thought certain parts of it could have been better, the messages were awesome and each individual character's story touched your heart in some way. A few of the scenes really stuck out to me, however it would be silly to try and explain them all without anyone else having seen the movie.

There were a few different quotes throughout the movie that were worth jotting down. The fairly long one I have posted below occurs after the character, Annie, realizes she's worth the adoration of a truly wonderful person. The truth is, I think a lot of people are in a similar boat, they don't feel worth it. I had a long discussion with my friend Evan while walking home from the bar the other this love thing worth it? I think anyone who has suffered through any sort of heartache starts to wonder so. The cynic in you takes over and you think about whether or not it would be better to live alone with your cats forever then to allow someone else the chance to prove your pessimistic self wrong. But the truth of the matter is, hopefully in the end you don't. And sometimes no matter what advice you always give to other people, maybe you should start listening to yourself a little more.

"Alright, I'm guessing that you're there, but you're sad and you can't be bothered. But I have a tale to tell Samuel. And you need to hear it. So listen up. The scene: Dinner with number 2, trying to cut him loose. No such luck. So get this, You know how people say beauty is on the inside? Well that's total bullshit. Beauty is on the outside, and I love me some beauty. I mean, who doesn't? But here is the crazy thing Sammy boy, I'm listening to Sam number 2. Listening, cuz he made me close my eyes... so hot. And he's making a total case for me and him to be an item. And as he's talking its like the molecules on his face must have re-arranged themselves because I opened my eyes and suddenly I am in front of the most beautiful, gorgeous man. Like a total hottie, who knew? Sammy 2! Haha that rhymes. And you were right by the way, it is a strong name. So here is what I have to say to you before the damn beep cuts me off. Sadness be gone! Let's be people who deserve to be loved. Who are worthy. Because we are worthy, we really are. You've been telling me that for years and now I get to spit it back at you. You're a good man Sam Wexler.
Go get yourself loved. That's all I've got."
