“Let’s say since you were little, and… and you… you always dreamed of… of someday getting a lion, and you wait and you wait and you wait and you wait, and the lion doesn’t come. Then along comes a giraffe. You can be alone, or you can be with the giraffe.”
“I’d wait for the lion.”
“That’s why I worry about you.”

Beginners (2010) - Dir. Mike Mills
