I’m in love with you but I can’t have you. When I see you in the office it’s almost painful but I can’t help but engage you. Every moment I can steal away with you is the best moment of my day and never lasts long enough. We were meant to be together, but instead you’re with him. He doesn’t love you like I do, like you deserve to be loved, he doesn’t love you at all. The worst part is you know this, but at this point you’re in too deep and you can’t just walk away. I get by knowing one day I’ll get the nerve to make you mine.
Why did you walk into my life so late? You’re perfect but I’m taken. He does love me just isn’t good at showing it. He does, right? We’ve been together a long time and I think soon something serious will happen and I need to wait that out. Just because I think about you all the time doesn’t mean I should throw all this time with him away. I’m more mature than that. This is real life and I’m an adult. I’ll set you up with a friend and make you happy. I love you, please wait for me.
Jim and Maggie. My favorite relationship and the main reason I continue sitting on the couch after True Blood. Every week I sit in anticipation to see what might happen between these tragic lovers.
You broke my heart and I’ll spend the rest of my life making you pay for that. It may be broken but it still beats for you, it just beats in this odd shattered way that I think might echo in my head and keep me up at night. I swear I hear your voice, see your face, you guide me when you aren’t there. But then one day you are, back in my life and in charge of my career. It’s best this way but I won’t allow you to know this. Actually I’ll do the opposite. I know this could hurt me so deeply I’m willing to put my career on the line just to be able to make your life hell, so I can have the upper hand. You won’t hurt me again. I love you too much for that.
I made the biggest mistake of my life and I hate myself for it. But what hurts more is how much you hate me. You can’t even pretend you don’t and I don’t blame you. But can’t we even work cordially because we were once a great team. You spend every moment trying to break me and trust me, it works. I just want you back. If there is a way that can happen please tell me, give me a sign, a clue or just take me. I’ll do it. I’ll make it right. I’ll spend every day of the rest of our lives making it right, because you are the reason I wake up in the morning.
Will and Mackenzie. She cheated on him a week before their wedding and it was called off. It broke him and she knows this. She has now come back to make him realize his full potential, knowing full well it will probably break her.
These are the two important relationships playing on during The Newsroom on HBO Sunday nights at 10PM EST. I’m sure there are many people watching this show for the news, my husband is probably one of them. But there are always people like me who are relationship driven. I need romance to bring me back and these plot lines do exactly that. Keep it up Sorkin, I for one am still watching!
