Mad to the Core

In Mad to the Core, Phebe informs her boyfriend that things need to change in her life before she loses her mind.

PHEBE:  It’s ’cause of everything. Everything. I’m wastin’ time here, Dean! Dying a slow death. Livin’ the same day. Seeing the same houses, the same faces, havin’ the same talks in the same houses with the same faces who live inside of ’em. Nothin’s new!! We never do anythin’ different. We never go for the drives we said we was gonna go on cause your car is always in repair. We don’t even walk anywhere but ’round these same streets! When we talk it’s like two kids who don’t understand anythin’. When do we ever discuss anythin’ that’s interestin’? I work my shift, come home, you work your odd hours, spend the rest of your time in the pub and come home; we’re not goin’ anywhere. Day in, day out. On repeat! Is this it now? Another fifty years of this? You think that’s how the story’s gonna play out? Well it ain’t, I’ve already put my time in…I’m already loose at the seams.

…I can’t believe he did it but I understand why he did what he did. He needed an out! I just didn’t deserve a Dad like him. And before I buy that same ticket, I am leavin’ this place, on a different route and I’m never comin’ back.
