"Scenes from a Marriage: Tåredalen (#1.4)" (1973)
Johan: I'll describe my take on security. The way I see it... loneliness is absolute. Anything else is an illusion. Never expect anything but trouble. If something nice happens, all the better. Just don't imagine you can do away with loneliness. A sense of togetherness can be created in, say, religion, politics, love, art. But loneliness is still all-encompassing. The treacherous part is that every once in a while you're struck by an illusion of togetherness. Just remember that it is an illusion. That makes it easier when everything returns to normal. You have to face the fact that loneliness reigns supreme. It puts an end to your moaning. Then you feel safe and secure. And you learn to accept how pointless it all is with a certain satisfaction. I don't mean you should be resigned. You should carry on as best you can, if only because it's better to do your best than to give up.


"Scenes from a Marriage: Mitt i natten i ett mörkt hus någonstans i världen (#1.6)" (1973)
Johan: I want something to long for.
Marianne: I don't feel the same way.
Johan: I realize that.
