BECCA: Does it ever go away?
NAT: What?
BECCA:This feeling.
NAT: No. I don't think it does. Not for me, it hasn't.
And that's goin' on 11 years.(pause) It changes though.
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 it's 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.....
NAT: Fine...actually.
"Rabbit Hole"
