Back to the sun, back to the shore / Back to what I was before / Back where I’m known / Back in my own very small pond / Laugh with my friends when I arrive / We’ll drop the top and just drive / That’s fine with me, just let me be / Legally blonde /
What makes me truly sad is when I hear Elle Woods sing,“Thank you for treating me decently,” to Emmett. Here’s a girl who spent most of her life being surrounded by people who adored her, but was soon isolated and upright mocked at Harvard. Not only does she miss her friends and family, but only has one or two people she can rely on. She wants to thank Emmett for seeing past her hair color for even a small amount of time, as she thinks she is just the common fool of the school. It hurts me that after all she and Emmett had been through, that she thinks everything he did for her was out of pity. Even when he had been in love with her for so long before this moment.
