People who notice everything but remain silent are to be feared.

A building lined with doors on every side. Actually, I’d love for the whole building to be covered with doors. The building has one floor, but the ceilings are high enough that you might feel like you’re in a vertical tunnel once inside. Each door is identical in shape and size. The slight differences can be found in the moulding, the doorknob, the knocker, and more rarely, the color, or the lack of any of these things. Or even in the way the door opens. The point is that at first glance, from a distance, they all appear to be identical. The only windows are on the roof with a clear view of the night sky. In fact, the whole ceiling is made of glass, or there are multiple large windows that also have slightly different design details.

The first row of doors are functional, but only a few, four or five, lead somewhere.

Emily Nussbaum on FX’s new sitcom “You’re the Worst”:

“Fingers crossed that the show gets a second season, because there’s wisdom submerged in its odd premise: as admirable as it might be to date a good person, there’s a case to be made for the lover who sees and accepts your darkest side, the one person for whom you never have to fake it.”
