My Us Is Me

"You're not a real anything!   You're not a boy, you're not a girl!"

"You're right.  I'm not a real anything."

"So Ricky, neither are any of us.  That doesn't give you the right to be unkind.  You know, you think you have the market cornered on feeling alienated?  I mean, shit, no matter what we look like or who we are, we're all just stumbling through life, trying to figure this shit out, just like you."

"Yeah, but you know, unlike me, you all have an us to figure it out with.  My us is just me, Robbie.  Try that sometime.  Let me know how it works for you."

"No No, No!  See, there you go again!  It's all about you, isn't it?  It's always all about you.  Have you forgotten that I have been on your side, always on your side, without condition, since we were six years old?"

"Of course, I've never forgotten that, Robbie.  That's why I have always trusted that you were the only person in this world who didn't secretly feel this way about me.  So now I guess that my "we" just got even smaller, huh?   No big deal, though.  I'm used to it.  Really, it's fine."

-- Boy Meets Girl, Eric Schaeffer, 2014

This one is worth a watch.
