Good Damage

Diane: If I don't write my book of essays now, I never will!

Princess Carolyn: So? Don't write your book of essays.

Diane: I have to!

Princess Carolyn: Why?

Diane: Because if I don't, that means that all the damage I got isn't good damage, it's just… damage.

Bojack Horseman, Season 6, Episode 10 "Good Damage"

There's not a lot that I have to add here. I loved that stupid horse show, because it was funny, and sad, and real in a way that most live-action shows are not. Diane is my favorite character and that exchange in particular hit very close to home for me. I've had conversations like that. I am trying to come to grips with a thing like that right now!

I'm not crazy about the "golden age of television" like most people are, but Bojack truly was one of the good ones.

It was nice while it lasted.
