My favorite part of Rabbit Hole

BECCA: This feeling, does it ever go away?
NAT: No. I don’t think it does. Not for me it hasn’t. And thats going on eleven years. (beat) It changes though.
BECCA: How?
NAT: I don’t know. The weight of it I guess. At some point it becomes bearable. It turns into something you can crawl out from under and carry around. Like a brick in your pocket. And you forget it every once in a while, but then you reach in for whatever reason and there it is. “Oh Right. That.” Which can be awful. But not all the time. Sometimes it’s kinda…Not that you like it exactly, but its what you have instead of your son, so you don’t wanna let go of it either. So you carry it around. And it doesn’t go away, which is…
BECCA: What.
NAT: Fine…actually.
