Fun Stuff

From "Boston Legal: Indecent Proposals (#4.18)" (2008)
Alan Shore: I'm sorry, Denny.
Denny Crane: No you're not. You're relieved.
Alan Shore: Well, I'm that, too. But if you truly loved her then I am sorry.
Denny Crane: ...
Alan Shore: Denny?
Denny Crane: There's no need to be sorry, Alan. Love, even when it's fleeting, even if it's for a day or's everything. Don't you agree?
Alan Shore: I do. I actually think it's why I'm still single. Every morning I get to wake up and I get to wonder: "Will this be the day?" Every night when I lay my head on my pillow I wonder: "Will I meet her tomorrow?" I imagine what she'll look like, her smile, the way she does her hair, how she laughs, the contour of her breasts, neck... The promise of love can be everything. It's a magic you really find in marriage if you luck out.
Denny Crane: Do you believe married people can stay in love?
Alan Shore: Oh, I believe thy can know even more profound joys be it with children, the depth of the relationship itself can evolve into something they can't possibly live without. And yet, it's something that doesn't quite so resemble love. It's not the romance of love.
Denny Crane: I never knew you to be such a romantic.
