Aku suka banget sama episode dua series ini. Bukan cuma ceritanya yang lucu banget, tapi akting Britt Robertson yang memerankan Sophia Amoruso pun jauh lebih baik daripada aktingnya di episode satu. Dia jauh lebih menjiwai karakternya dan momen di mana dia nggak lepas sewaktu berekspresi marah atau senang nggak kejadian di episode ini. Ada sih di awal, tapi itu dikit banget. Dan itu benar-benar termaafkan. Yang jadi Mobias juga udah mulai natural aktingnya.
Sophia mulai mendapatkan pencerahan setelah lelang untuk jaket original yang dijualnya di eBay nyaris menembus angka $600. Dia mantap banget untuk menggeluti “bisnis” di bidang vintage fashion lewat eBay. Dia mau belajar secara otodidak dan untuk itu dia perlu beli buku. Karena harga bukunya mahal, dan dia belum berniat untuk menutup lelang di eBay, dia akhirnya memutuskan untuk mencuri buku lagi! (Gosh!)
Setelah berhasil nyolong karpet di episode satu tanpa kesulitan apa pun, kali ini Sophia ketahuan sama sekuriti, setelah sebelumnya dia sempat lolos melewati kasir. Dia nyaris dipolisikan! Berkat benjolan di dekat bagian pribadinya, yang dengan nekat dan cueknya dia pertontonkan ke sekuriti tersebut, dia berhasil kabur dengan buku curiannya itu: Starting An eBay Business For Dummies. Serius, bagian ini bikin ketawa banget!
Benjolan di bagian tubuh Sophia itu kata dokter adalah hernia. Nggak begitu parah sih katanya, tapi mungkin suatu saat bisa berbahaya dan harus dioperasi. Biayanya besar sedangkan Sophia nggak punya duit. Kecuali dia bekerja sama orang supaya dapat asuransi kesehatan, dan dengan demikian dia dapat potongan harga. Hal ini benar-benar dihindari Sophia. Dia nggak betah kerja sama orang lain. Dia maunya bisnis sendiri. Kasihan, ya? Mana dia kena tilang, terus kehujanan pula. Apes banget.
Aku sempat baca di Wikipedia tentang Sophia Amoruso. Dia katanya memang suka mencuri. Bahkan dia juga didiagnosa menderita depresi dan kesulitan konsentrasi. Makin menarik kan kisah hidupnya? Inspiratif, tapi tentu bukan yang bagian nyolongnya, dong, lol.
MY FINE LINE
“My life was garbage before this moment.”
“Oh, not only that, but I can like, live doing this forever. I mean, all from the comforts of my small, shitty apartment. I never have to get another job again.”
Annie: Sophia, you found something that you like doing, and you are actually doing it.”
Sophia: Yep, I figured out life. There’s nothing left to learn.
“What do you think vintage is? A nice way of saying “shitty old clothes.”
Mobias: Hello, little street urchin. What existential malaise is plaguing you today?
Sophia: All of your cheap stuff sucks and your good stuff is way too expensive.
Mobias: Then don’t buy anything, problem solved.
Sophia: Problem not solved. I need to get stuff.
Mobias: Ugh. “I Need to get stuff.” See, right there is what ails this society. It’s that type of consumerist mentality.
Sophia: Dude, you run a store.
Mobias: I like to think of us as one link in a circular chain of sustainable clothing use.
Sophia: Okay, I need to get stuff because I started reselling vintage clothes online.
Mobias: You—You think you’re responsible enough to run a business?
Sophia: Not a business.
Mobias: Oh, no?
Sophia: Yeah, I’m not looking to cheat people or screw taxpayers, buy elections.
Mobias: Sure, you just want to exchange goods for money.
Sophia: Wrong, I just wanna spend all day in my undertrunks on my bed and still be able to eat and pay the rent. It’s a lifestyle, not a business.
Mobias: Oh, I see. You think you can actually support yourself with your online business.
Sophia: Not a business, it was very clear.
Mobias: Well, it takes a lot more than lucking into some bargains at thrift stores.
Sophia: I flipped that jacket you sold me yesterday. It’s now going for over 600 bucks.
Mobias: You bratty little c-word.
Sophia: You mean “cunt”. Maybe I know exactly what I’m doing.
Mobias: Do you? How much time have you spent looking for inventory to sell? And how much have you found? What do you know about overhead, online marketing, shipping, customer complaints, returns?
Sophia: Duh. Plenty.
Mobias: Please. You may have found your acorn, my little blind squirrel, but there is no way that someone like you can make a living at it.
Sophia: Okay, go ahead, underestimate me. That’s just what I want. I feed off that shit. The truth is, I’m smarter than you think. I have good instincts and common sense coming out of my dumper. I’ve got it all figured out.
Jim: Hey, miss. Excuse me. Miss. I see that For Dummies . I think you’re stealing it.
Sophia: You don’t know what you’re talking about.
Jim: I’m an asset protection associate. I saw you take that book. I’m almost certain you did not pay for it.
Sophia: No, paid for it. Thank you for your service.
Jim: Please, let me see that receipt.
Sophia: I’m so sick of being profiled all because I kind of look Indonesian.
Jim: You’re the whitest girl on this block. Give me that.
Sophia: They don’t always put everything on there.
Jim: You need to come with me. Come on.
Sophia: So, what do I get for running afoul of the asset protection associate? Is public shaming enough?
Jim: No, no, no. We prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
Sophia: Fuck me in the dick.
Jim: Young women should not talk like that.
Sophia: What age would be appropriate to say “fuck me in the dick?”
Jim: You know, you’d have a better vocabulary if you read more.
Sophia: Yeah, what do you think this was for?
“Yeah, don come back! It’s a family bookstore! You wanna flash your cooch? Go to City Lights!”
“One minute she’s figured out life, the next she’s digging through junk mail. The ups and downs of Miss Sophia.”
“Annie, I’m the one who called you. That means I get to set the agenda.”
Sophia: Right now, I’m staring at a People magazine from the ‘90s with Tonya Harding on the cover. Her face is all red and puffy from sick hands that have touched it.
Annie: Oh, no, Doll. That’s just how she looks.
“All right. You are gonna be fine. I know this, I’m very smart like that.
“Love you in case i die. For real.”
Doctor: It appears to be an inguinal hernia.
Sophia: A hernia? I’m – I’m too young to have a hernia.
Doctor: Well, some people tell me I’m too young to be a doctor, but here we are. I may not know everything, but i know enough.
Sophia: Okay, and then how do you fix it? Do you just pop it back in and then, i don’t know, a bump grows on my head like Tome and Jerry?
Doctor: Heh, right? If only. No., No., No. You’d have it done surgically.
Sophia: How much does that cost?
Doctor: Hard to say. I’d guess 3.000. To 5.000. But if you have health insurance, it’d just be your deductible.
Sophia: You think I would be here if i had health insureance? After this, i’m gonna buy Advil with an Albertsons rewards card. I wouldnt know where to begin to get health insureance.
Doctor: Most people get it through their job.
Sophia: Christ! I need to get a job?
“I thought that I was taking steps forward. Now I don’t even know what direction forward is.”
“Things are supposed to get better. There’s really no guarantee that that’s true. For tons of people, their lives just get worse and worse, and then… that’s just it! They never figured out what they were put on this goddamn planet to do. They just live, and then they die, and they take a big old mud nap? And I’m standing out here in the rain literally with my guts hanging out holding a dead woman’s clothes in a dirty laundry bag! My life has got to be better than this. It just does… right? Right?”
