Andrew Largeman: Do you lie a lot?
Sam: What do you consider a lot?
Andrew Largeman: Enough for people to call you a liar.
Sam: People call me lots of things…
Andrew Largeman: Is one of them liar?
Sam: I could say no, but how would you know I’m not lying?
Andrew Largeman: I guess I could choose to trust you.
Sam: You can do that?
Andrew Largeman: I can try.

Trying to see poetry within the shifting imagery of meaning
Well if you’re feeling hollow man
Just throw the stone and shatter your reflection…with questions.
Well if you’re trying as hard as you can
To see where you fit in this plan
It’s a long road, long lonely road

Hank (letter to Karen): Dear Karen,
If you’re reading this, it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it, so good for me. You don’t know me very well, but if you get me started, I have the tendency to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. But this, this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it: I met someone. It was an accident. I wasn’t looking for it. I wasn’t on the make. It was a perfect storm. She said one thing, I said another. Next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in that conversation. Now there’s this feeling in my gut that she might be the one. She’s completely nuts in a way that makes me smile. Highly neurotic, a great deal of maintenance required. She is you, Karen. That’s the good news. The bad is that I don’t know how to be with you right now. That scares the shit out of me, because I have this feeling that if I’m not with you right now, we’ll get lost out there. It’s a big, bad world full of twists and turns and people have a way of blinking and missing the moment. A moment that could have changed everything. I don’t know what’s going on with us and I can’t tell you why you should waste a leap of faith on the likes of me. But damn, you smell good, like home, and you make excellent coffee. That’s got to count for something, right? Call me.
Unfaithfully yours, Hank Moody
