  • Oliver Week 5!

    Dog feces in the locker! It seems like something out of Saved by the Bell or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but I am curious to see where they go with this Oliver being bullied storyline. Are we going to see his clumsiness resolved by the finale? Or will Paul not be able to bring the family back together and salvage the remains?

    I think In Treatment is the kind of show where one, or more characters will not achieve happiness by the end of the season. I look forward to seeing which do and which do not in the next few weeks.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Paul: I hope by now you understand that if there's something bothering you, you can talk to me about it.
      Oliver: Somebody put dog shit in my locker!

    • Luke: (to Paul) First, Bess vanishes on this apparently permanent vacation, and then you go AWOL. It's like rats deserting a sinking ship.

    • Luke: (about Oliver) I mean, he's fat, he's shy, he doesn't have any friends and he smells bad. If I were his age, I'd probably bully him too.

    • (talking about Oliver)
      Paul: I think you wanna try and spare Oliver from the pain that he's going through right now. But you love him so much and that makes you frustrated and angry.
      Luke: Yeah, but what good is loving him if I can't help him?
      Paul: But isn't loving him helping him?

    • Luke: (talking about his father) When we did well, that's just what he expected of us. And when we screwed up, well, let's just say he was a man of limited sympathy.

    • Paul: (to Luke) You're not doomed to live your father's life. You have a choice.
