Dr. Bigelow: So you took a chance on being happy, even though you knew that later on you would be sad.
B: And now youre sad.
B: So whats the problem?
L: Im too sad . Look, I liked the feeling of being in love with her. I liked it. But now shes gone and I miss her and it sucks. And I didnt think it was going to be this bad, and I feel like, why even be happy if its just going to lead to this, you know? It wasnt worth it.
B: You know, misery is wasted on the miserable.
B: You know, Im not entirely sure what your name is, but you are a classic idiot. You think spending time with her, kissing her, having fun with her, you think thats what it was all about? That was love?
B: THIS is love. Missing her, because shes gone. Wanting to die . Youre so lucky. Youre like a walking poem. Would you rather be some kind of a fantasy? Some kind of a Disney ride? Is that what you want? Dont you see? This is the good part. This is what youve been digging for all this time. Now you finally have it in your hand, this sweet nugget of love, sweet, sad love, and you want to throw it away. Youve got it all wrong.
L: I thought this was the bad part.
B: No! The bad part is when you forget her, when you dont care about her, when you dont care about anything. The bad part is coming, so enjoy the heartbreak while you can, for Gods sakes. Pick up the dog poop, would you please? Lucky sonofabitch. I havent had my heart broken since Marilyn walked out on me, since I was 35 years old. What I would give to have that feeling again . You know, Im not really sure what your name is, but you may be the single most boring person I have ever met. No offense. Give me my dog. Come here. You . Dont fall down.
