Review of Go On: Win at All Costas

January 9th, 2013 | Add comment

Overall rating: 3.5/5 stars

Summary for GOWs, WOWs, and Widow(er)s: Ryan’s widowerhood wasn’t really an issue in this episode. Mr. K tries to “replace” Janie but to little effect. Instead the grief/loss focus is on Anne who is still bitter and self-centered over the loss of her partner. However, she learns that she isn’t the only one that suffered loss and learns to realize that others are hurting just as much, if not more, than she.

Recommended episode for widow(er)s and their significant others: Yes

Favorite quotes from the show:

Anne: Do you experience me as a wet blanket . . . a bummer?

Ryan: Anne, you’re kind of catching me off guard here, but, yeah.

Anne: Fausta didn’t invite me to her niece’s think. I mean I’m not all sunshine and rainbows but my life is hell. I’m basically drowning in a sea of sorrow.

Ryan: Hard to imagine why she wouldn’t want that at a 15-year-old’s party.

Anne: I can be as difficult as I want, but my stuff is bigger than hers.

Ryan: I don’t think she sees it that way.

***

Anne: Look out girls, widow coming through. Yeah, that’s right, life ain’t all Justin Beiber and Second Face.

***

Anne: Look at her having so much fun with her family and her friends while I sit at the table with my partner: Lonliness.

Anne: How do you do it? How do you smile with so much pain?

Fausta: “You can smile or you can cry. And I choose to smile.”
