MY FAVORITE EPISODE OF LOUIE

Season 3. Episode 5. Daddy's Girlfriend, Part 2
  1. I watch this episode when I'm feeling kind of sad or am in a hopeless romantic kind of mood
  2. It guest stars Parker Posey as Louie's date. She is beautiful and dark and sad and complex
  3. And the entire episode is their first night out together
  4. First, they go to a bar where the bartender won't serve Parker Posey's character because of something that happened the last time she was there

  14. PP's character freaks Louie out by sitting on the edge of the balcony
  15. Parker Posey then gives this amazing monologue:
  16. "Do you know why you're scared? (Louie- cus you'll fall and you'll die) The only way I'd fall is if I jumped. That's why you're afraid to come over here. Because a tiny part of you wants to jump. Because it would be so easy. But I don't want to jump. So I'm not afraid. I would never do that. I'm having too good of a time."
  17. She finally reveals her name is Liz
  18. How I feel when I watch this episode.
