Sobre o amor é muito interessante ver duas personagens de uma série dizerem coisas que considero tão pertinentes:

"Bones: The Skull in the Sculpture (#4.7)" (2008)
Dr. Lance Sweets: [Sitting together at a restaurant over dinner helping Angela work out her feelings and how she should go about her pursuing a her relationship with Roxie] It's exactly the same situation as the last time you were sitting here. Except, you know, you're quieter.
Angela Montenegro: No, that was about Hodgins. This is about Roxie.
Dr. Lance Sweets: [Loudly] You want to have sex with Roxie!
Angela Montenegro: What was that about quieter?
Dr. Lance Sweets: I'm sorry, I'm not certain you're being guided by your brain, that's all. Need can be confused with love. Fantasy can convince us that what we are feeling is love.
Angela Montenegro: So, you're saying is that this is all rebound?
Dr. Lance Sweets: Yeah.
Angela Montenegro: No, you don't understand love, Sweets.
Dr. Lance Sweets: I'm not as innocent as you might think.
Angela Montenegro: You have this bourgeois notion...
Dr. Lance Sweets: Bourgeois?
Angela Montenegro: ...that in order for love to be real it has to be permanent. Nothing is permanent. That's just a fact. We move in and out of loving other people, but that doesn't make the love any less real.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Mm-hmm, perhaps you're saying this because you haven't met the love of your life.
Angela Montenegro: I have actually. Many times.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Fine. It seems to me that you always leave yourself an escape hatch in your relationships, because you afraid of commitment.
Angela Montenegro: Nice try. But no. Actually, I commit to every person I love.
Dr. Lance Sweets: You marry a man and then conveniently forget that you married him because you got zonked on Kava Kava. That compromises your relationship with Hodgins so that ends, along with the marriage. Now you say you have these intense feelings for an ex-lover whose heart you've already broken. Don't you see the potential disaster here?
Angela Montenegro: Look, you said that, without the possibility of pain, there can be no joy, no real love.
Dr. Lance Sweets: I said that? That's beautiful.
Angela Montenegro: Look... I don't want to hurt Roxie again.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Then Don't. Don't. Put her welfare first. Let Roxie decide if she's ready to pursue this relationship.
Angela Montenegro: Okay. And what if she doesn't?
Dr. Lance Sweets: Then I'm afraid you'll have to live with that pain.

A minha parte favorita é:

Angela Montenegro: Tu tens esta noção burguesa...
Dr. Lance Sweets: Burguesa?
Angela Montenegro: ...que para o amor ser real ele tem de ser permanente. Não há nada permanente. Isto é um facto. Começamos e deixamos de amar outras pessoas, mas isso não faz o amor ser menos real.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Mm-hmm, talvez estas a dizer isto porque nunca encontraste o amor da tua vida.
Angela Montenegro: Sim encontrei. Várias vezes.
