Eddie Mack: Louie, look me in the eye and tell me I have one good reason to live.
Louie: [a long pause] No.
Eddie Mack: See, you got nothin'.
Louie: No. No, I'm not - I'm not playin' that. I'm not doin' it.
Eddie Mack: Whadda you mean.
Louie: I mean - I mean fuck you, man. I got my reasons to live. I worked hard to figure out what they are; I'm not just handin' 'em to you. Okay? You want a reason to live? Have a drink of water and get some sleep. Wake up in the morning and try again like everybody else does.

My favorite Louie episode
10 January 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Seeing Doug Stanhope, who's been my favorite living comedian for a long time, playing an underground comedian who's failed to reach mainstream success, being a Yin to Louis' Yang, in this brilliant episode, and illustrating one of those many situations of failure to adapt, of talent wasted because of an imperfect society, of how sometimes sticking to your principles can backfire on you and make you give up on life, was amazing for me. One of the best episodes of the series. Just watching these two brilliant comics (my top two that are alive) sharing the screen is a treat and a blessing. Mustn't miss this, especially if you're a real fan of modern stand-up.
