Overflow

Glenn: “You would expect an imposing house from him, right? One-per-center type money, so something ostentatious, but I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got there. Simple to the point of boring. Custom built, yet so lacking in style most people wouldn’t even give it a glance.”

Moria: “Maybe that was the point? Plus, who could say if the inside wasn’t a gilded showpiece? Kind of like people, if you ask me. The outside never tells the true story.”

Glenn: “Okay. Okay. I can go with that, but don’t try to tell me he’s a decent, ethical person. He’s done too much damage.”

Moria: “Rumors. Poorly-sourced gossip that too many people are ready to believe because it makes them feel morally superior.”

Glenn: “This is what I love about you. Optimism tempered with a deep understanding of people. None of which explains why you are with me.”

Moria: “Going against my own advice, I guess. There’s no easy box for love. It overflows.”
