Top 5 Most Memorable Quotes From The Good Place
The Good Place has ended leaving us feeling like we are in the bad place. Hilarious, uplifting and weird, the show has a special place in our hearts. We loved our philosophy lessons with Chid, Fangirling over humanity with Michael, and chilling with Janet in her a void. And I can’t help feeling that this show isn’t just leaving us entertained, but wiser. Like a parent subtly stuffing spinach into her kid’s ice-cream sandwich, the good Place wraps life lessons in a heart-warming series. Check out the top 5 most memorable quotes from The Good Place.
The Good Place Quotes – Cindy Crawford
“Sometimes a flaw can make something even more beautiful. Like with Cindy Crawford and how short she is.”– Tahani
Flaws are fabulous. They are unique, defining, windows into the lives we have led. Tahani’s endured a painful journey in the series, starting out as someone who craved acceptance and respect, to the detriment of her own well-being, and then ending as someone more content with who she is. In fact, the actress who plays Tahani, Jameela Jamil, is an activist of self-love and body confidence, and has even founded the company Iweigh.
We all have imperfections, Beyoncé, Lizzo, Keanu Reeves, do too. They are not bad or ugly. Whoever is reading this, you are beautiful, because of your flaws.
The Good Place Quotes – Start Crying
Okay, I’ve made my decision. I want to… start crying.– Chidi
Guess what. Crying is ok, feeling sad is ok, venting is ok, emotions are ok. Sometimes in a difficult situation, the first step has to be, to come to terms with the situation, to feel what you feel. Make sure you are well hydrated.
The Good Place Quotes – Distract From the Emptiness
“I mock others to distract myself from the emptiness inside of me.”– Eleanor
This pretty much sums up every bully in the universe. I wouldn’t call Eleanor a bully, but in the beginning, she does have a hard-spiky shell. Everyone is guilty of hardening themselves or building themselves up by climbing on the shoulders of others. But that doesn’t mean it’s right. Still, recognizing the behavior is the first step to fixing it. Which is what Eleanor did, she saw what she was doing, she saw why, and then she began to mend her wounds.
Embrace The Insanity
“I guess all I can do is embrace the pandemonium, find happiness in the unique insanity of being here, now.”– Eleanor
Guess what…your very existence is a miracle. You could have been born a frog, or a mushroom, but you were born a human. You managed to win the sperm race and made it to the womb. And you grew into a unique and capable being. Who has access to the internet and presumably Netflix. Life is insanity, and random, and by some dumb luck you were born a human, but now you get to choose freely what course you take, seize it, baby!
Humans only live 80 years, and they spend so much of it just waiting for things to be over.– Janet
Janet was probably the best character of the show, this brilliant not-robot, not-girl being is intelligent, kind and a scarily good fighter. And now she’s spitting truths at us whether we want it or not. How many weeks have we spent just wishing for the weekend, wishing we were anywhere but here. If yes, then you got to make some adjustments friend, if you don’t want to be at work, then maybe you need a career change. Make every moment you are granted on this Earth count, whatever that means for you.
I guess me and Janet have something in common now, we both have a void, but mine is less of a magical dimension between realities, and more of a ‘what do I watch now’?
So, thank you, Mike Schur, for creating this show, and thank you to everyone involved. It is clear that it took hard work, passion, and fun. It paid off, and I can’t wait to see what you all create next.
Make their art count, fart monsters, and let your inner Janet shine through, eat as much frozen yogurt as you can, and keep growing. Now get the fork out of here!
