Please help me! Which episode is this quote from?

Post by Carrie » Mar 13th 2005, 6:54 pm

Hi everyone. I'm new.
Anyway I saw this as someone's senior quote in one of my old yearbooks, but I don't know which episode it is from. Here it is:

"The thing is, people always expect you to be the same. Like you're a rock or something. But even rocks....erode."

Does anyone know where this is from? Thanks in advance

There isn't any particular quote about rocks that I can recall. The closest two are:

People always say you should be yourself, like yourself is this definite thing, like a toaster, or something. Like you can know what it is, even. -- Pressure

There's so many different ways to be connected to people. There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to, even though there's not even a word for it. There's the people who you've known forever, who know you in this way that other people can't, because they've seen you change....they've let you change. -- Strangers in the House

I looked at the transcripts, and the only time in the entire series that the word "erode" is said is in episode 18 - Weekend - when Angela is trying to stall Camille from going upstairs to Patty & Graham's bedroom:
Angela: But, I, do I go to the person and tell them, "Look, you know, I really don't like the top. Can I have the receipt back?" Or does it become this thing that sort of sits in my closet that just erodes like...
Um, in my room, one seam is a little off and I stare at it constantly. It's, like, destroying me.

So, you are asking when that quote was said in the series, or in something else? I am pretty sure that isn't from the show.

It doesn't appear in the show. The original VHS tapes came with these, like, cards with characters' pictures on them. Each one had a "quote" from that character, and most (all?) were not actually from the show. I wonder if Winnie made them up specially, or some hack?
