I got the third season of Northern Exposure on DVD a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been enjoying it just as much as I did when it was shown on A&E nonstop. So much of my philosophy of life comes from this television show.
There are so many times when I want to say, “Remember the episode of Northern Exposure when…” I keep thinking that if the people who ask me for advice just watched this show as obsessively as I did during my college years, that they wouldn’t need to ask for advice. Each quote vividly reminds me of the lessons that I learned from Northern Exposure.
This is the first Northern Exposure quotation that we ever entered into the collection:
Here are some of my favorites:
Marilyn is so quiet. I would love to be more like her. I have so many words that they not only spill out my mouth, they spill out my fingers onto paper. I don’t know if I will ever be able to fly…
I fight this demon all the time. I didn’t even have a name for it until I saw this episode. I can’t wait until this season comes out on DVD.
This has always been my goal when having guests. It felt so good to hear it said so simply and succinctly.
