It's about whether or not you get the chance to do good work.

Not that I am complaining.
I wanted to play the role.

would he? But drama is about imperfection.
And we've moved away from the aspirational hero.

How he so resolutely refuses to be happy or take the kind-hearted road.
But we don't always like morally good people,
do we?

else that I could look at and say,
"Nailed that one." But endless dissatisfaction is,

embarrassing my children by doing the job I do.
I hope I've managed to do that, and I hope that,
with the job I'm in now, they are, if not proud,
at least unembarrassed by it.
I must say, my three are most agreeable children,
who do nothing but delight me.
- Hugh Laurie

All your senses are alive.
