So I just finished My So-Called Life and I could relate so much, it was actually embarrassing. Personally, I thought 1x06 “The Substitute” was genius. Too bad it got canceled, but perhaps that’s what makes the show so great and cult worthy.
"It just seems like, you agree to have a certain personality or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for everyone. But when you think about it, I mean, how do you know it’s even you?"
"Sometimes it feels like we’re all living in some kind of prison, and the crime is how much we hate ourselves. It’s good to get really dressed up once in a while. And admit the truth: that when you really look closely? People are so strange and so complicated that they’re actually… beautiful."
"But once you start making plans then you have like obligations, and that basically blows. So my feeling is, whatever happens, happens."
"You could have sex with me though… if you really want to help."
"See, when I look at myself I see everything in like slow motion and I think, something has to happen. Only it never does, so I have to make it happen.”
"Anything causes a scar—living causes a scar.”
"You have this great house, parents that are there, and no one talks about you at school."
"Have you ever tried to protect someone so much that it hurts?"
"I mean, if you, like, analyze why certain people end up with certain other people it’ll make you wanna kill yourself!"
"Finally! An erection from actual, physical contact!"
"Over the edge. That’s like your address, right?"
"I pity you, she takes advantage of you and you don’t even know it."
