Scandal

Fitz: Does it ever bother you? All the lies? All the pretending? And that's not an accusation, cause I do it too and do it well. It's just a question. Because it's gotten so easy. I don't know anymore.
Mellie: Pretending is what's real.
Fitz: What?
Mellie: Every married couple alive pretends. They pretend they don't hate their in-laws or their husband's stupid jokes or their wife's laugh or that they don't actually love one of their children more than the others. Marriage is, well, it's almost all pretend. For everyone. That's the reality. That's what's real. Buying into the delusion that there's any other way to live together, to get through an entire life together, that's, well that's the fantasy. That's pretending.
