the roberts family

Underrated scene...

when Rob comes into the backroom the morning after and is speaking with Liv. she’s worried that her telling Rob about the drugs upset Aaron.  But instead of Rob simply saying “no, of course not”, he added more:

“Actually, he’s angry with himself for what he’s done. For the mess he’s caused.”

Aaron didn’t say any of that, but the point is Rob wanted to, not only protect Liv’s feelings, but Aaron’s image as well. 

On further reflection, I now believe Rob was speaking for himself.  He was apologizing for his own actions.  He low-key apologized to Liv - the representation of his “proper little family”.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
