When James made up his mind about Lily
  • James: [Fleamont is in the kitchen. James walks in] I'm dating Lily Evans.
  • Fleamont: Well, well, well!
  • Euphemia: What's happening?
  • Fleamont: James says he and Lily are dating.
  • Euphemia: I don't believe it.
  • Fleamont: That what he says. Right?
  • James: I'm going up to Cokeworth today.
  • Euphemia: Oh, James. This is so exciting!
  • Fleamont: Come on, let's call the Evans'. We've got something to celebrate.
  • James: No. I think you'll want to wait on that.
  • Fleamont: They don't know?
  • James: No, they don't.
  • Fleamont: Well, when did you decide all this?
  • James: About an hour ago.
  • Euphemia: Wait a minute. You talked to Lily this morning?
  • James: No. She doesn't know about it.
  • Fleamont: She doesn't know that you're coming up to Cokeworth?
  • James: No. Actually, she doesn't know about us dating yet.
  • Euphemia: When did you two talk this over?
  • James: We haven't.
  • Euphemia: James, this whole idea sounds pretty half-baked.
  • James: No, it's not, Mum. It's completely baked. It's a decision I've made.
  • Fleamont: But what makes you think she wants to date you?
  • James: [James picks up his suitcase, walks to the door] She doesn't. To be perfectly honest, she doesn't like me.
  • Aaron: Carry on without us, why don't you?
  • Chas: Sorry, we were starving.
  • Charity: And gasping. Soz.
  • Harriet: Er... am I up?
  • Aaron: Erm, well, no offence, but we kind of did our own thing.
  • Harriet: Wow. Well, then in that case, I'll bless you with gin and tonic and enjoy the party.
  • Chas: Your own thing?
  • Robert: Yeah, we did it somewhere a little bit less...
  • Chas: Hideous?
  • Robert: Yeah.
  • Aaron: Sorry.
  • Chas: No, I'm sorry we... we put you off. Oh, come here! Mmm, oh, baby! Aww... (hugs Aaron and then Robert)
  • Robert: Liv doesn't think it's her fault or anything, does she?
  • Chas: No, no, no. I er... Well, I caught her with the bubbly. So she's gone for a lie down.
  • Aaron: Mum!
  • Chas: What? It was one glass on an empty stomach. I watched her like a hawk but you know what she's like, she's sneaky.
  • Charity: (rings bell) Good news, everybody. It wasn't a barney, and they got wed!
  • (cheering and applause)
  • Adam: Get in, mate, nice one!
  • Aaron: Mate? You're no mate of mine, you liar!
  • Adam: Oh, come on, Robert made me do it, don't be like that!
  • Vic: I am made up for the pair of youse.
  • Diane: Me, too. Congratulations, pet. Oh, do you know, if your Dad could see you today...
  • Aaron: Oh, Diane, you haven't got a drink, come on. No good, is it?
  • Diane: Ooh, brownie points to the new son-in-law. Break his heart and you're dead, though. Just saying.
  • (chuckles, cheering)
  • Zak: (bringing the welly) Come on, son. Let's be having you.
  • Robert: Eh?
  • (laughter)
  • Chas: Now the welly!
  • All: Drink from the welly! Drink from the welly! Drink from the welly!

Hey mum !! I have a question. Since you're from Korea, do you have any tips on learnin it ?? Bc I'm trying to learn how to read/speak/understand it but it's a lil bit hard

hi bebs! i’m actually from america but am korean-american! subtle difference, and it means that korean is not my first language and i learned it as well! i grew up hearing the language but didn’t really start speaking it fluently until i got into high school (and i can speak it a lot better than i can read, though i’m getting better with practice). what i think is really important (as it is with all languages) is immersing yourself. of course, everyone is different but here are a few tips:

  • it might be easier to focus on either speaking or reading first as you might get overwhelmed if you’re trying to do both 
  • understand that korean is different than other languages (for example english, but i’m told that it’s similar to japanese) in syntax so that the sentence structure is seems completely off so that sometimes you have to listen to the entire sentence to understand the meaning. 
    • i think that this is a more technical thing that could be learned and understood through workbooks and i’ve heard that “Learn Korean - Grammar” is a pretty good app! 
  • i encourage you to seek out resources like youtube videos, language websites, etc, that suit YOU and your learning preference  
  • listen to people talking in dramas, variety shows, etc, with subtitles on! you’ll start recognizing certain words that are used a lot 
    • you actually find yourself learning quite a bit through shows because you also get the benefit of hearing how words are pronounced
  • the korean alphabet is relatively simple and that’s mostly a matter of memorization; there are 2 “alphabets”: the “consonants” such as ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, and the “vowels” such as ㅏ, ㅣ, ㅓ, and it helps to learn them separately before you make them into words 
    • in korean school, they have you write out each of the alphabets, and later words that you learn 
    • so that with time you’ll be able to put together the consonants like: ㅇ, ㅁ ; and vowels  like:ㅓ, ㅏ to make 엄마 (mom) eventually! 
  • if you have someone who is fluent in korean around you i would say to try to speak/text in korean with them and they would often correct you when you are wrong (srsly my mom does this for me and it’s helped my spelling so much) 
  • don’t give up! korean is a difficult language and can be daunting especially when you’re learning it for the first time 
  • YOU GOT THIS HWAITING!!!! 
  • "No, no -- Go back to sleep."
  • "How long before the kids go to college and we have time for ourselves again?"
  • "My mum/dad died."
  • "Lose my job? I didn't lose it. It's not like, 'Whoops! Where'd my job go?' I QUIT."
  • "Drink up. Whiskey’s God’s way of letting us know he loves us and he wants us to be happy."
  • "Maybe we didn't raise him/her the way we should have. Maybe we went wrong somewhere."
  • "No, don't just say you're fine. Where's the doctor? Let me go speak to the doctor."
  • "Shush, it's fine. They won't hear us."
  • "I like your ass."
  • "What the hell have you been smoking?
  • "Do we need anything else, d'you think? Do we still have milk at home?"
  • "Do people really fall for that line?"
  • "Stop it. Stop crying. You're going to make me cry -- Goddamn it."
  • "Wait, did you just call me 'honey'? We just met."
  • "Sometimes I worry that you're just a really great dream."
  • "Fuck, I told you not to leave any hickeys."
  • "What are you smiling about?"
  • "Shouldn't you get that? What if it's important?"
  • "You're really killing the mood."
  • "What happened to 'we should never go to bed angry at each other'? Talk to me."
  • "Be careful when you let our baby sleep in our bed, okay? Don't crush him/her."
  • "I don't care what happens to be, don't you get it? I don't care if I live or die."
  • "Jesus Christ, take it easy next time. Look at these nail marks."
  • "You're so fucking immature, you know that? I don't know how I can stand you."
  • "It's not that I don't trust you, I don't trust him/her."
  • "I don't know whether to interpret that as a good thing, or a bad thing."
  • "I mean it. Just say the word, and I'll kill him."
  • "I told you I didn't want kids when we first got married! We're not negotiating my uterus."
  • "You broke my heart. Now you want to be 'friends'?"
  • "Come on, jump. I dare you."
  • "Zip me up."
  • "Tell me about your dream."
  • "Wake up. You don't want to sleep all night on the couch, do you? C'mon, come to bed."

What if Kylo is a double-agent?

Somewhere in the Knights of Ren super secret treehouse base.

“Oh Kylo! It was so brave of you to infiltrate the First Order to take down Snoke and deliver the galaxy of this terrible piece of evil garbage. The price you paid was so heavy. Will I ever be able to share your burden?”

“Truly, it was nothing Rey. As my namesake Ben used to say ‘With great powers comes great responsibility’. I can say that because Marvel belongs to Disney now. What I did, I did for the greater good.”

“Oh Kylo, your humbleness is only matched by your lustrous hair and your face, that is the best. There is something I must confess. I can’t remain silent any longer. I… I am irresistibly drawn to your charisma and charm. And I heard that you have an eight-pack.”

“Oh Rey. Me too I am drawn to myself. But I think that I… I have feelings for you. Let’s stop fighting those feelings! Oh Rey, kiss me on the mouth like in those holovids Han Solo used to hide from mum.”
