No version of myself is permanent but, sometimes, the bad parts are trying to fool me into thinking they are permanent.
Jenny Slate


[When asked if she thinks she doesn’t give people enough credit] I think when I first meet people I give them all the credit and then I slowly take it away.
Jenny Slate


Sometimes there isn’t a penny worth the bullshit.
— Marsha Ambrosius (Breakfast Club Interview – Posted 5/4/2017)


Never get on the bad side of small minded people who have a little authority.
Gifted


I was always raised with the concept of not being a dilettante. […] When you took something up […], you didn’t dabble in it. […] If you wanted to do it, you were going to practice, and you were going to be disciplined and learn how to do it properly.
Elisabeth Moss


For me, if I can find [what] the music for the character is, I know who she is. Because for me, who a person is, is very difficult to put into words. What I love about music is you can express something without using words and it can capture an intangible quality that I couldn’t describe to somebody. You know?
Elisabeth Moss


Love isn’t real. It was never anything more than lust with a good marketing campaign.
— “Faithful.” The Handmaid’s Tale


Every love story is a tragedy if you wait long enough.
—”Faithful.” The Handmaid’s Tale


It’s a thin line between petty and pathetic.
Remy Ma (Cited on Breakfast Club – Rumor Report)


We expect leaders to take us where we want to go. The problem, it seems to me, begins when they don’t. When things do not improve and yet these leaders keep expecting us to get on their bus. I think this is when leaders become something else. […] Politicians.
— “Polyphony.” Sense8


I only repeat myself in the vague hope that one day, somebody will actually hear me.
This Beautiful Fantastic


Homes are architectural forms of memory.
— “Polyphony.” Sense8

— “Fear Never Fixed Anything” Sense8


Your life is either defined by the system or by the way you defy the system.

If you can’t look out for yourself, how the hell you going to look out for me?
— “The Secret of Spoons” American Gods


I’m not stuck in the past. I just hate the present.
— “Kimmy Gets Divorced?!” Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


Therapist never really tell you what you should do. They ask you what you think you should do. If they know the correct answer, they hold it close to their vests as if they were in a poker match in a way that lets you know, ‘I’m here to listen, but you will be fucking up your life on your own, kiddo.'”
— “Twelve Sixty-six.” This Is Just My Face, Try Not To Stare (Page 136)


“Damn shame I tell you, being a black woman. ‘Be strong,’ they say. Support your man, raise your man, think like a man. Well damn, I gotta do all that? Who’s out here working for me, carrying my burden, building me up when I get down? Nobody. Black women out here trying to save everybody and what do we get? Swagger jacked by white girls wearing cornrows and bamboo earrings. Ain’t that a bitch? But we still try. Try to help all y’all. Even when we get nothing. Is that admirable or ridiculous? I don’t know.”

— “Tick Tock.” Scandal


Mr. Big Strong Black Man. God forbid you let a sista like me help you out. Naw, you don’t want that. Don’t let me put you on my back when you fall. Wipe the crust out of your eyes. Put a pep back in your step. Because when we do, you resent us for making you better, smarter, stronger. Then drop us so you can be with someone basic, someone without all that baggage you left us with.

— “Tick Tock.” Scandal

Overview

Review (with Spoilers)

At this point, I can firmly say I am an Olivia Wilde fan and if her name is attached to a film, likely I will sooner or later watch it.

Overview

After a rough breakup, a young comic has a one night stand with a nice boy. Thing is, with them not using condoms she ends up pregnant, and she is not looking to have a baby.

Review (with Spoilers)

After seeing Jenny Slate in House of Lies, and unfortunately in The Longest Week as well, seeing an Obvious Child trailer months back made me think “I know her from somewhere!” But with Slate having never been in a lead role, outside of doing short films, and possibly on Married, the question does become: Does she make a good lead actress for a movie?
