Me:: nooooo. tumblr won't upload ken cosgrove tap dancing :-(
“You know what family means to me Lemon? Resentment, guilt, anger. Easter egg hunts that turn into knife fights.”
Klaus:: There is a word in German: Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. And the closest translation would be "Lifelong Treasure of Destiny." And Victoria is wunderbar, but she is not my Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. She is my Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand, you know?
Ted:: *shakes head for no"
Klaus:: You know wunderbar, but you don't know Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand? That's something we learn in kindergarten. I'm sorry, "kindergarten" is the German word for--
Ted:: No, no, I know that one.
Klaus:: Oh, okay. But you don't know Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand? You are maddeningly inconsistent. It means "the thing that is almost the thing what you want, but it's not quite." Das ist Victoria to me.
Ted:: How do you know she's not Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz? I mean, maybe as the years go by, she'll get Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz-ier.
Klaus:: Oh, nein, nein, nein. Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz is not something that develops over time. It is something that happens instantaneously. It courses through you like the water of a river after a storm filling you and emptying you all at once. You feel it throughout your body. In your hands, in your heart, in your stomach, in your skin. Of course you feel it in your Schlauchmachendejungen. Pardon my French. Have you ever felt this way about someone?
Ted:: Yeah, I think so.
Klaus:: If you have to think about it, you have not felt it
Ted:: And you are absolutely sure you'll find that someday?
Klaus:: Of course. Everyone does eventually. You just never know when or where.
