Quote I Love: Because I changed the light bulbs?

Was watching an old episode of Brothers & Sisters the other day and thought I’d share one of my favorite quotes from the show. This one always makes me think of my honey. There’s nothing like knowing you can be exactly who you are and be loved for it.

Kevin: You know, it’s like all these crazy people in my family are in this insane freefall and completely incapable of being happy. And then I look at Saul, who… who’s missed his life entirely. And I realize how lucky I am because I get to come home to someone who is kind and caring, and who changes the lightbulbs… and… marry me.

Scotty: What?

Kevin: I mean it. I don’t want to wait. I want to make this official.

Scotty: Because I changed the lightbulbs?

Kevin: No, well, yeah, kind of. Because, Scotty, that’s who you are. I’m completely, completely in love with you. I even love the things about you that I hate. Because you make me feel like I don’t have to be anyone other than who I am. And to me, that feels like family, and that’s what I want us to be. I want us to be a family because that never ends. I’m doing this all wrong. [gets down on his knees] Scotty, I’m asking you. Will you please marry me?

Scotty: Yes. Yes, Kevin, I’ll marry you.

From Brothers & Sisters

  1. I haven’t watched that show in years, but what a wonderful scene! And I agree, we should all be so lucky to be loved like that. *sigh*

    • Hi LC. I like the earlier episodes best. Wouldn’t the world be such a better place if we all had that kind of love? I know my daily life is. :)

  2. Loved that! I don’t watch tv very often, but this makes me wish I could ;)

    To know, without a doubt that the person you love loves you despite all your faults? Just what we all want and need I think. I have that, and it is pretty wonderful isn’t it?

    • Hey there, Elaine. So glad you have someone like that in your life. Aren’t we lucky?

      I like the part where he says…”I even love the things about you that I hate.” *grin*
