Ginger and Rosa

We had a dream, that we would always be best friends. When we were born for some, it was the end. Now it seems like it may not be tomorrow. But, despite the horror, and the sorrow I loved our world, I wanted us all to live. Now Rosa, you’ve asked me to forgive. One day, if mom survives this bitched night, and we shall meet again and I will say: “I loved you, Rosa. Don’t you see?” But we are different. You dreamed of everlasting love. Not me. Because what really matters, is to live, and if we do there will be nothing to forgive, but I’ll forgive you anyway.

Girl Most Likely

Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year’s News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she’s forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother. Adding further insult to injury, there’s a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother’s bed. Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she’s ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

I was listening to the fresh air podcast today, i had forgotten how much this scene made me sob aka how fucking great it is.  

Marriage is hard… Just two people slogging through the shit, year after year, getting older, changing. It’s a fucking marathon, okay? So, sometimes, you know, you’re together for so long, that you just… You stop seeing the other person. You just see weird projections of your own junk. Instead of talking to each other, you go off the rails and act grubby and make stupid choices.
