A memorable quote from one of my favourite sitcoms Cougar Town (it’s totally hilarious and witty. Everyone should be watching it!), Stop Dragging My Heart Around (S1E10):
Andy: Did lover boy tell you he likes Jules?
Grayson: What? No. I just said someday I could end up with a girl like her.
Laurie: Jules is your someday girl?!
Grayson: My what now?
Laurie: A someday girl is someone who someday someone else can see themselves ending up with someday. It’s super serious.
Grayson: Someday girl is a great title for a new song.
In short, a someday girl is a girl you aren’t pursuing or involved with now, but a person whom you can see yourself ending up with someday. “Someday” could be 20 years from now, or it could be tomorrow. Who knows? Anything is possible.
The entire episode is gold, with the appropriate amount of cheesiness, heartfelt moments, angst, pranks, humour, friendship, laughter and love. I’m so glad I turned on the TV last night.
Because that wasn’t the only quote that caught my ears and mind. It was what Ellie said at the closing scene that really got to me and it was all I could do to stop tearing (I really ought to stop being such a crybaby!).
Ellie: I just remind myself how scary it would be out there drifting alone. It’s weird with relationships. Two people can start off in the same place and for whatever reasons, they split off in different directions …
… I guess what I’m trying to say is that I love you and I’m so happy that I am not out there having to start all over to look for what we have, because it’s hard to find and even harder to keep.
We have had so much history together and we are always going be attached in some way or another, but maybe our happy ending is us being friends. 🙂
Seriously, click “play” already.
