  • Your mother needs you, Ellen! Jesus Christ, you've got a Harvard education, but where is your heart?


  • It's so much easier to be happy. It's so much easier to choose to love the things that you have, instead of always yearning for what you're missing, or what it is that you're imagining you're missing. It is so much more peaceful.


Kate: [dressed as Dorothy] Welcome! There's no place like home!
Ellen: [silently, to herself] Thank God.
