“It’s like you become more you. But now it’s okay. Because the person, like, whoever, they chose to take all that on. All that weird stuff, whatever’s wrong, or bad, or hiding in you. Suddenly it’s all right. You don’t feel like such a freak anymore.”
Imagine Ian and Mickey in the morning kissing half naked in the bed. Mickey looks at the camera, panics and screams "WHAT THE FFFFUCK!" and hides under the sheets. Ian turns around and goes "Hi! Didn’t see you there! This is what you missed last week on Shameless." Laughing goes under the sheets to continue the job, with Mickey struggling and mumbling things.

I NEED THIS.
Someone on Twitter asked me at the Ask Orange event last week what my favorite thing is about Poussey, and I said “her smile.” Because, although a lot of people talk about how the show is a mix between comedy and drama, being in prison is not necessarily funny. It’s not a funny situation. But there can be people in prison who are naturally funny people, and people that you would enjoy spending time with, enjoy sharing a meal with. Although throughout the season you see that Poussey is frustrated by her incarceration, she has four more years to do there, so it’s not like she can so much see her end date. So I think, in contrast to some of the other characters, she really has to make prison her home, and has to make it livable there. I really enjoyed finding the joy within the fucked up-ness of it. —Samira Wiley
