“I’m life Annie and I’m going to bite you in the ass!”
The brilliant and timely advice from Annie’s friend Megan. If you haven’t watched Bridesmaids it’s a must. I was skeptical when I found out about it too but it’s a hilarious movie.
At one point when Annie’s at her worst Megan comes in to give her some advice. It’s one of the best parts of the movie.
Annie: I can’t get off the couch, I got fired from my job, I got kicked out of my apartment, I can’t pay any of my bills, my car is a piece of shit, I don’t have any friends. Umm…
Megan: You know what I find interesting about that Annie, it’s interesting to me that you have no friends, you know why that’s interesting? Here’s a friend standing directly in front of you trying to talk to you and you choose to talk about the fact that you don’t have any friends. No, No I don’t think you want any help you just want to have a little pity party. I think Annie wants a little pity party. You’re an asshole Annie, you’re an asshole, I’m life, is life bothering you Annie? I’m life Annie, I’m life Annie, is life bothering you? Fight back for your life. You better learn to fight for your life. I’m life and I’m going to bite you in the ass. It’s not me, I’m your life. I’m trying to get you to fight for your shitty life. And you won’t do it, you just won’t do it. Stop slapping yourself, I’m your life Annie, I’m your shitty life. Smack. Nice hit.”
We all get down and out sometimes, we all have moments when we are at our worst. This scene reminds us though that no matter how bad things get, your friends will always be there for you. Also, to make it in this world, we have to fight for our lives. Throwing a pity party doesn’t solve anything. Learn to fight for it.
