Quote from Debra in Six Feet Under
Debra: It was two years ago.
Ray: Well, You never acted like you were having a mid-life crisis.
Debra: Ray, look at me. I am rubbing cream on my hands. Do you know why I'm rubbing cream on my hands?
Ray: Because it's hand cream?
Debra: No, because my skin isn't as soft and smooth as it used to be. Have you noticed?
Ray: Well, I didn't want to say anything-
Debra: Shut up, Ray. That is why every night I take this cream and desperately try to turn back the clock. And even though I know it's a losing battle, I still do it anyway. That is how you have a proper mid-life crisis. You do not start planning your death. You go into denial like a normal person.
