Love and Other Disasters

a surprisingly nice film. it's a story about love and all the crazy happy ridiculous things that come along with it.

the movie revolved around Jacks (played by Brittany Murphy) and her crazy friends both gay and straight.

here are some lines which i thought are worth quoting:

Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: "I'm not so sure. Love isn't always a lightning bolt, you know? Maybe sometimes it's just a choice."

"I don't know that Paolo's the love of my life, but I've decided to give him the chance to be. Maybe true love is a decision. You know, a decision to take a chance with somebody. To give to somebody. Without worrying wether they'll give anything back. Or if they're gonna hurt you, or if they really are the one. Maybe love isn't something that happens to you. Maybe it's something you have to choose."

Therapist: "The stages of a relationship can be defined by farting.

Stage one is the conspiracy of silence. This is a fantasy period where both parties pretend that they have no bodily waste. This illusion is very quickly shattered by that first shy, "Ooh, did you fart," followed by the sheepish admission of truth. This heralds a period of deeper intimacy.

A period I like to call the "Fart Honeymoon", where both parties find each other's gas just the cutest thing in the world.

But, of course, no honeymoon can last forever. And so we reach the critical fork in the fart. Either the fart loses its power to amuse and embarrass thereby signifying true love, or else it begins to annoy and disgust, thereby symbolizing all that is blocked and rancid in the formerly beloved."
