13 Steps to "Okay"

  1. 1.
    Susan, are you okay?
    Yeah. I'm okay.
  2. 2.
    Really? Are you sure?
    Yeah, I'm sure.
  3. 3.
    'Cause you don't look okay.
    Well, thanks a lot.
  4. 4.
    You know what I mean. You look, sort of...not okay.
    I'm fine, Ted. Believe me.
  5. 5.
    Okay. But, you know, some people...when they're not really okay, they try to put on this "okay look" so that other people can't really tell that they're not okay. The thing is, other people really CAN tell - because the "okay look" is never quite the same as being genuinely okay. It's like "fake-okay." So I just thought I'd check.
    Thanks.
  6. 6.
    'Cause I love you.
    Thanks.
  7. 7.
    And, I just want you to know that whether you're okay or not okay, you can tell me, and I'll be okay with it. Because I'm okay with YOU.
    Ted...

    And if you're one of those people who does the fake-okay thing...
    Which I'm not...
  9. 9.
    ...I'm here for you.
    I can see that.
  10. 10.
    So, you're okay, then?
    I am ohhhh-kay.
  11. 11.
    Good.
