Tv Show Quotes Galore : Bojack Horseman –– Memorable and Impactful

Tv Show Quotes Galore : Bojack Horseman –– Memorable and Impactful


I cannot believe that it took me this long to discover this show called Bojack Horseman. Now that I do, your girl literally binge-watched it in the span of a week and now tributing a blog post for all the amazing quotes in the tv show Bojack Horseman.

All this time whenever I hear someone mentioned Bojack Horseman, I would always be skeptical about the show. One of the reason being that I have heard a lot on how depressing and “real” this show could be, and I honestly wasn’t about to get sad and depressed from a show. So I try to avoid it for the longest time possible. And now after I finished watching Bojack Horseman, I can honestly say that despite it’s darker aspect of storytelling, there is so much to learn and take away from the show. 

So much so that I feel like I need to re-watch the show a few more times to truly understand the series and find all those hidden Easter eggs that might be hidden in the show. That, or your girl is just obsessed with Bojack Horseman and want an excuse to rewatch it all over again.

You can live your whole life like it’s a puzzle, put together from pieces of different sets. Your whole life is full of these pieces that don’t quite fit. But at some point, you start to think it’t you––you’re the piece that doesn’t quite fit. And you spend so long with that feeling…that the feeling becomes your home. 


Life is but an endless series of missed opportunities. 



bojack horseman quotes



You know that I don’t do the whole love thing. Either you end up hurting someone or they hurt you. So what’s the point?


It’s so easy for you…to love me when everything’s good.





I think there are people that help you become the person that you end up being, and you can be grateful for them even if they were never meant to be in your life forever.





I’m poison. I come from poison and I have poison inside me and I destroy everything I touch. That’s my legacy.



bojack horseman memorable quotes



What if you deserve to be happy and this is a thing that will make you happy? And maybe don’t worry about whether you’ll be happy later and just focus on how you’re happy right now?


You know, when we first met, I was looking for something in my life. And I wanted it so badly that I made myself believe you were it. But I think that wanting to believe something isn’t the same as something being real. 


And this isn’t real. 





“I just––just wanna be a beautiful salad bowl.”



“You are a beautiful salad bowl.”





I just want everyone to love me, but I don’t know how to make them do it. 


You blame everyone else for all your problems, but you’re the only constant here.




bojack horseman memorable quotes




And all those years I was miserable was for nothing.


I don’t forgive you. You have to live with the shitty things you did for the rest of your life. You have to know that it’s never, ever going to be okay.


Sometimes I have this tiny voice, in the back of my head that goes, like, “Hey everyone hates you, and they’re not wrong for feeling that way.”



bojack horseman memorable quotes



I’ve wasted so much time sitting on my hands and imagining what could have been. 


Tell me you don’t feel the same.


Tell me you haven’t thought about it. 


I have nothing to show for the life that I’ve lived, and I have nobody in my life who’s better off for having known me.





The weak breeze whispers nothing


The water screams sublime


His feet teeter-totter


Deep breath, stand back, its time.


Toes untouch the overpass


Soon he’s water bound


Eyes locked shut but peek to see


The view from halfway down.




People who seem happy can actually be the most depressed. 


I am this close to falling off the deep end. I know I’m smiling right now, but the light inside me is dying.



bojack horseman memorable quotes



We understand each other, in a way. Me and my mom and my dad, as screwed up as we all were, we did understand each other. My mother, she knew what it’s like to feel your entire life like you’re drowning with the exceptions of these moments…these very rare, brief instances, in which you suddenly remember…you can swim.


“How long do I have to keep putting out fires for you?”



“I don’t know––”



“Just let them burn.”





Don’t do this. Don’t fetishize your own sadness. 





Usually, when people ask me how I’m doing, the real answer is I’m doing shitty. But I can’t say I’m doing shitty because I don’t have a reason to be doing shitty. So if I say, “I’m doing shitty,” then they say, “Why? What’s wrong?” And I have to be like, “I don’t know, all of it?”


So instead, when people ask how I’m doing, I usually say, “I am doing so great.”


My life is a mess right now and I compulsively take care of other people when I don’t know how to take care of myself. 





“My mom died and all I got was this free churro.”





Beatrice Horseman was born in 1938, and she died in 2017, and I have no idea…what she wanted. Unless she just wanted what we all want: to be seen. 


When you get sad, you run straight ahead and you keep running forward, no matter what. There are people in your life who are gonna try to hold you back, slow you down, but you don’t let them. Don’t you stop running and don’t you ever look behind you. There’s nothing for you behind you. All that exists is what’s ahead.



bojack horseman memorable quotes



“My mother is dead, and everything is worse now.”


Because now I know I will never have a mother who looks at me from across a room and says, “BoJack Horseman, I see you.”


You can’t force love. All you can do is to be good to the people in your life, and keep your heart open. 





It’s never too late to be the person you want to be.

You need to choose the life you want.





I’m at a place right now where I never need to grow as a person or rise to an occasion because I can constantly just surround myself with sycophants and enablers until I die tragically young.



bojack horseman memorable quotes



There is no such things as “bad guys” or “good guys”. We’re all just guys who do good stuffs sometimes and bad stuffs sometimes. And all we can do is try to do less bad stuff and more good stuff, but you’re never going to be good. Because you’re not bad.


I’m not afraid of commitment. I commit to things all the time. It’s the following through on that commitment that I take issue with. 



bojack horseman quotes



It takes a long time to realize how truly miserable you are, even longer to see it doesn’t have to be that way. 





Sometimes it’s hard to remember that pure, shining thing because it’s been painted over with so many arguments and compromises and disappointments…

But you have to believe it’s still down there somewhere, even if you can’t see it. And maybe even the belief in it is more important than the thing itself, but only as long as you still believe it.





Time’s arrow neither stands still nor reverses. It merely marches forward.





“I wanted to push you to be your best self. I see now that I failed you.”



“But you didn’t fail me because I am not a failure.

Why do you need to be proud of me on your terms?”





You know me better than anybody, and you can’t not be a part of my life.


In this terrifying world, all we have are the connections we make. 



bojack horseman quotes



“No matter how many starts I get, there’s always the same ending. Everything falls apart and I end up alone.”



“I’m still here, Bojack.”






“I don’t know. I’m a fool I guess. And one time you were drunk and you smiled at me and I said: ‘What?’

And you said: ‘I just like being in a room with you. You make rooms good.’”



“You still do.”



“I have loved you for 25 years, and I’ve never loved anyone better. That kind of love, you only get it when you’re young and stupid. I’m not gonna get it again.”


I realized people don’t change because they want to change. They change because they have to change. 





“I’m not gay. I mean, I don’t think I am, but I don’t think I’m straight, either.

I don’t know what I am. I think I might be nothing.”





Sometimes I feel like I was born with a leak, and any goodness I started with just slowly spilled out of me and now it’s all gone. 



bojack horseman quotes



“You know, I was beautiful before I got pregnant.”



“I know.”



“You ruined me, Bojack.”



“I know.”



“You better grow up to be something great to make up for all the damage that you’ve done.”



“I will.”


“You flip over the nothing and underneath there’s more nothing. Then you flip over that nothing and there’s more nothing underneath that. So you just keep flipping over ‘nothings’ all your life because you keep thinking that under all that ‘nothing’, there’s gotta be something, but all you find is nothing.”


“You are all the things that are wrong with you. It’s not the alcohol or the drugs or any of the shitty things that happened to you in your career or when you were a kid, it’s you! Alright? It’s you… Fuck, man. What else is there to say?”



bojack horseman quotes



“Life’s a bitch and then you die, right?”



“Sometimes life’s a bitch and then you keep living.”





I don’t care where you go––but I can’t have you around here. 



You make me too sad.





You know, it’s funny. When you look at someone through rose-colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags. 


“So, what, I should just settle?”



“Yes, thank you, exactly. Settle. Because otherwise you’re gonna get older, and harder, and more alone. And you’re gonna do everything that you can to fill that hole, with friends, and your career, and meaningless sex, but the hole doesn’t get filled. One day, you’re gonna look around and you’re going to realize that everybody loves you, but nobody like you. And that is the loneliest feeling in the world.”


That’s the problem with life right? Either you know what you want, and you don’t get what you want, or get what you want, then you don’t know what you want.
