“Even longer,” Pooh answered.
I don’t know if very many of you know who GK Chesterton is, but please read these quotes. They are very true and/or very funny.
SCULLY: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been six years
since my last confession, and since then I’ve drifted away from the
church. I’m not sure why exactly.
PRIEST: Have you come to confess?
SCULLY: No, um, there’s a man that I work with – a friend – and
usually I’m able to discuss these things with him … but not this.
Father, do you believe in miracles?
PRIEST: Of course, I see them every day … the rising sun,
the birth of a child …
SCULLY: No, I’m talking about events that defy explanation. Things
that … I believe helped me to save a young boy’s life. But now I
wonder if I saw them at all. If I didn’t just imagine them.
PRIEST: Why do you doubt yourself?
SCULLY: Because my partner didn’t see them. He didn’t … he didn’t
believe them. And usually he … he believes without question.
PRIEST: Maybe they weren’t meant for him to see.
Maybe they were only meant for you.
SCULLY: Is that possible?
PRIEST: With the Lord, anything is possible. Perhaps you saw
these things because you needed to.
SCULLY: To find my way back?
PRIEST: Sometimes we must come full circle to find the truth.
(Scully looks up at the priest) Why does that surprise you?
SCULLY: Mostly, it just makes me afraid.
SCULLY: Afraid that God is speaking … but that no one’s listening.
Â Scrubs 206 My Big Brother
Dr. Cox walks through. He passes Turk, who is waiting for an elevator.
Dr. Cox: [whistles] Let’s go, field trip.
Turk: I got things to do, you know.
Still, he follows Dr. Cox.
Dr. Cox: Let me guess, you’re off to another funeral. I’ll make you a deal — you come with me right now, and if you’re still late for the graveyard, I will personally scour the obituaries with you this weekend and you can just go nuts!
Turk: Carla put you up to this?
Dr. Cox: No, it was my idea. I desperately want to be close with you, I just can’t figure out how to connect. Turn around.
Turk gives him a look.
Dr. Cox: [firm] Turn around.
Turk does turn around, and the two look into the observation window of a patient in the I.C.U.
The family is gathered around the bed as Dr. Wen speaks to them.
Dr. Cox: You see Dr. Wen in there? He’s explaining to that family that something went wrong and that the patient died. He’s gonna tell them what happened, he’s gonna say he’s sorry, and then he’s going back to work. You think anybody else in that room is going back to work today?
That is why we distance ourselves, that’s why we make jokes. We don’t do it because it’s fun — we do it so we can get by…and sometimes because it’s fun. But mostly it’s the getting by thing.
