Masters of Sex, 2x05
[Masters of Sex] is getting to a greater truth to what was going on. When Virginia Johnson read my book… [she] basically said 'You know Tom, I read your book, and now that I think about it, I guess I really did love him,' I almost fell off my chair because she had been - she would say ‘Well you know I didn’t really love him,’ and she said that throughout the book. But her actions belied that. It was clear from her actions that they were both crazy about one another in their own, you know, kind of very odd, very utilitarian way. But they were mesmerized by one another, even when they were fighting. Their story, a lot of it has to do with attraction and repulsion. It’s almost like two magnets - they’re both attracted and at times if you flip them around the other way they repel each other. That was a big part of their relationship.
Do you ever have that moment when a kid is looking at you and you realize that they’re looking at you as a grown up? Then its like no child im a children too, dont. Im sorry my outward appearance confuses you.
Go ahead and ask this actress about sex: it’ll take more than that to make Lizzy Caplan blush.
Me! Me! Me!
When I wrote that I pretty much intended for it to be a rhetorical question but I’m TOTALLY DIGGIN’ THE ENTHUSIASM
"i’m not bitter" i say, bitterly, with a bitter expression
Virginia Johnson and Libby Masters
Yet Libby couldn’t bring herself to dislike Gini, no matter how uncomfortable she might feel in her presence…Intuitively, Elisabeth Masters seemed to understand she and Gini shared Bill, that he had defined both their lives, and they would always be under his sway.

"Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it."
