[Bojack Horseman, temporada 4, episódio 6, “Stupid Piece of Sh*it”; script]
Well, all weddings are lies, right? Sort of. You’re making this big declaration about how you’re gonna stay with this person forever, but you don’t actually know that. You’re just saying it. The whole thing is a farce. (…) But it’s a lie based on truth. Like, at the center of the farce there’s this nugget of something real and pure. And that strange beautiful something is why you put up with everything else, right? I guess so. And sometimes it’s hard to remember that pure, shining thing because it’s been painted over with so many arguments and compromises and disappointments. But you have to believe it’s still down there somewhere, even if you can’t see it. And maybe even the belief in it is more important than the thing itself, but only as long as you still believe it. Does that make sense?
