On Growing Up...From "Dawson's Creek"

Little Girl: After tonight, I'm avoiding growing up at all costs.
Joey: Sounds good...let me know if you have any luck.
L: Aren't you supposed to be arguing the other side? Convincing me that
growing up can be such a beautiful experience...if I just LET it?
J: I see...you want the, "I'm older than you, so here's how it works
speech," right? How's this? ...Growing up sucks. And not all kisses are
magic, and most boys, do NOT live up to your expectations. But...there are
those times when everything, I mean...love, romance, relationships,
life...it all falls together perfectly and...it's incredible. And it's
those moments, no matter how DEPRESSINGLY few and far between...that make
growing up worth it.
