Cassie: I want you to tell me!

Lawes: What?

Cassie: How to stop bad things happening.

Lawes: Doesn’t work, does it? That’s why you have to start eating again.

Cassie: … I fell in love.

Lawes: Ah, love. Why cut yourself when you can be in love?

Cassie: You think passing an exam will make me happy?

Lawes: Cassie, passing exams generally only makes life more complicated, but there’s lots of other stuff that makes things bearable, and you don’t even have to use a knife.

Cassie: … Like?

Lawes: Disco.

(Then they dance.)

I think about this scene pretty much every day of my life. I think it’s my favorite scene ever from a tv show or the one that’s resonated most deeply with me, anyway, because 1. it’s made me feel the most understood and 2. it’s brought me the most comfort. Also, I think it’s kind of the best summing up/illustration of (at least my interpretation of) Zen philosophy that I’ve ever seen in any form of media, and it kind of gets to the heart of the show in that through all of the horrible shit the characters go through, they always ultimately seem to find a way to enjoy life and each other and being in the moment (through being in the moment?)

Last night I dreamed an entire "Glee" episode and it was this about everyone was having an "off" day and where everything felt wrong and everything was going wrong and they were all doubting themselves about various things  and they were each singing original songs about it which i woke up with some of them in my head (pieces of the songs and the scenes etc.)

Brittany was singing to a stuffed bear in her room and then she hugged the bear and was like “oh! I feel better now!” and then was her normal self, but everyone else was still dragging for most of the ep.

It was really cool though odd.
