Learning From TV (# 7) - Six Feet Under

I am having the re-run of the Six Feet Under again. So, it's gonna be a dark and gloomy season again. Some memorable quotes from the series:
Brenda (played by the mesmerising Rachel Griffith) talking to Nate (Peter Krause) at the cliff where they're gonna have their wedding ceremony held.
All we have is this moment....
right here, right now...
The future is just a fucking concept that we use to avoid being alive today.
So.... be here..... now.
Maggie (step sister of the Fisher family when her father married the creepy Frances Conroy and Ruth, the mother) told Nate.
[Maggie Sibley]:
I know that if you think life's a vending machine where you put in virtue and take out happiness, then you're going to be disappointed.
Nate and David (both the Fisher's brothers) having conversations about David's constant grip with pain:
[Nate] :
You hang on to your pain like it means something, like it's worth something. Well let me tell you, it's not worth shit. Let it go. Infinite possibilities and all he can do is whine.
[David] :
Well, what am I supposed to do?
[Nate] :
What do you think? You can do anything, you lucky bastard, you're alive. What's a little pain compared to that?
[David] :
It can't be so simple.
[Nate] :
What if it is?
Come to think of it, Six Feet Under's not all that gloomy after all right???
