Cats: The way to heaven

Scrubs quote

Huh, I've not been massively keen on 'Scrubs' so far, but finding this quote makes me want to watch more of it. It's the best summation I've seen of how I feel about relationships: that like everything else worthwhile in life, they're not always easy and they require effort. I've shed the ideals of high romance but I don't see myself becoming a cynic anytime soon.

"Relationships don't work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they, won't they, and then they finally do and they're happy forever, give me a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren't right for each other to begin with and half the ones that get married get divorced anyway and I'm telling you right now, through all this stuff, I have not become a cynic, I haven't. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies, and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don't care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line is couples that are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is that they don't let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time, if it's right, and they're real lucky."
