What if it is?

September 3, 2011

Nathaniel Sr: You’re missing the point.
David Fisher: There is no point, that’s the point…………isn’t it??


Nathaniel Sr: Don’t give me this phony existential bullshit, I expect better from you. The point’s right in front of your face.
David Fisher: Well I’m sorry but I don’t see it.

Nathaniel Sr: You’re not even grateful are ya?
David Fisher: Grateful? For the worst fucking experience of my life?

Nathaniel Sr: You hang onto your pain like it means something, like it’s worth something – well let me tell ya, it’s not worth shit. Let it go. —– Infinite possibilities and all he can do is whine.

David Fisher: Well, what am I supposed to do?
Nathaniel Sr: What do you think? You can do anything, you lucky bastard, you’re alive! …….What’s a little pain compared to that?

David Fisher: It can’t be so simple.
Nathaniel Sr:: [putting his arm around David and pulling him closer]  

What if it is?

  1. I love Six Feet Under.

  2. Isn’t it just the best? The final scenes in the last season’s episode, to Sia’s song “Breathe Me” gave such a powerful and satisfying completeness to the Fisher saga. The irony of Claire, who lived so recklessly, living past 100; and being shown to have lost her vision from cataracts, carried the implication that after observing life through the lens of a camera, from the detachment of an artist, that at the point of death, she may have still been disconnected from her true self.
