Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – Spark Joy

Lorelai: Mom, nothing is going to bring you joy right now. Nothing. Your husband just died. When some time has passed and you realize that you’ve given away all your carefully chosen stuff, you’re going to track down Marie Kondo and kill her, and then you’re going to go to jail wearing those jeans and the Winchester Mystery family will be living here in your ballgowns.
Emily: I don’t know how to do this.
Lorelai: Do what?
Emily: Live my life.
Lorelai: Mom…
Emily: I don’t know what to do or where to go. I’ve forgotten which side of the bed to sleep on. I was married for fifty years. Half of me is gone. You don’t understand.
Lorelai: I understand.
Emily: You can’t understand, you’re not married.
Lorelai: Luke and I are as good as married.
Emily: No you’re not, you’re roommates. And someday you’ll just go off and find another roommate. I had a real partner for fifty years and now I’m alone.
