Scenes I Love | Gifted

I’m starting 2 new segments here called “Scenes I Love,” and, “Lyrics I Love.” Expect to see them regularly, but on no particular schedule. To begin “Scenes I Love,” I’ll be quoting one of my favorite scenes of all time, from a new movie called Gifted.

“Is there a god?”

“I don’t know.”

“Just tell me.”

“I would if I could, but I don’t know. Neither does anybody else.”

“Roberta knows.”

“No, Roberta has faith, and that’s a great thing to have, but faith is about what you think and feel, not what you know.”

“What about Jesus?”

“Love that guy. Do what he says.”

“But, is he God?”

“I don’t know. I have an opinion, but that’s my opinion. I could be wrong. So why would I screw up yours? Use your head, but don’t be afraid to believe in things, either.”

“Huh. There was a guy on TV who said there was no god.”

“The only difference between the atheists on TV and Roberta is that Roberta loves you. She’s trying to help. Tell you what though… One way or another, we all end up back together in the end. That’s what you’re asking, right?”

“Yep.”

“Okay. Find something else to worry about, will you?”

“All right.”
