Whenever I see Helen I have several a-ha moments. They’re never brilliant things like I figure out some major existentialist theory but its important details of life that I should have known but never are clear to me until she points them out.
This moment happened this evening at Otto Enoteca.
Helen: You know Pete is Connor right?
Helen: Pete Campbell is Connor from Angel.
Me: OH MY GOD.
I hated Connor so much for being such a whiny bitch. And with Pete I had this weird love-hate thing. Now I know where its based.
Kind of like why Creed hates Paul Reiser on Mad About You. He can’t forgive what he did to Ripley in Aliens.
