“Mom, Listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for twenty-two years, but we have been together for sixteen. ‘Kay, that’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together in the park. When we were two, we were best friends, I mean, I, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color. I knew her favorite food. Then we became six, you know, and Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl, so for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, Mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She was always talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, andwhen I’m with her I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I feel is love, Mom. When I’m better because she’s here.”
I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now. There’s just something about knowing he’s watching everything I’m doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him.
“While he was a lovely and sweet guy, he was also a leader on the set, a strong personality and the only analogy I can think of is that he felt like an older son to me.” - Ryan Murphy about Cory Monteith
I hope that right before Cory died he had a moment of silent consciousness where he looked back on all his accomplishments and all his loved ones and all his fans and was proud of what he had done. I just really want that for him I just really want his last thoughts to have been, “look what you did kid. Look what good you started in the world.”
That quote Cory talk about what love is, "When I'm better cause she's here." Makes me think how Cory knows how special rucas is since in secert of life, he knew about lucas dark secert but he never kept him away from riley. He encourage them to work together & talk things out cause he realized how much of a calming and positive influence riley is on lucas and he must of thought how he gave the speech about what love is "when I'm better cause she's here" lucas is better cause of riley.
That’s very true, anon! Actually you have me emotional with your message for some reason! haha And also, I do feel like Riley is at her best with Lucas too, he brings out something from within her that I don’t see with anyone else. Maybe that’s why I like so much “Girl Meets The New World”, she seemed so mature and confident in the way they addressed their whole situation. And then the outside pressure was off and Riley was just bursting with life and light during her basketball rant while Lucas looked at her like she was not the only person on the room, but in the world. I feel like they bring out the best in each other and that’s what real partners do! :D
