It's the episode where they are trying to find out if Greendale gave a degree to a dog and Frankie and Annie are investigating in the dean's office.
Annie "What do you hope is true?"
Frankie "Oh God. I never hope. Hope is pouting in advance. Hope is faith's richer, bitchier sister. Hope is the deformed addict-bound incest monster offspring of entitlement and fear. My life results tripled the year I gave up hope... What's true will be true. Our job is to deal with that truth."
I love that quote. It's so elegant and dark. Of course the moral of the episode was that hope was good. Later Annie is given "hope points" for her good work.
Other hope quotes I like. Obviously Ben Folds & Nick Hornby's "Big Picture Window"
"You know that hope is?
Hope is a bastard
Hope is a liar
A cheat and a tease
Hope comes near you?
Kick its backside
Got no place in days like these."
And then Emily Dickinson's "Hope is the things with feathers"
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all
And sweetest in the Gale is heard
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm
I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet never in Extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
That one has a much prettier theme but each is true and each is an incomplete picture of hope.
