What are some of your all-time favourite TV monologues? Whether because of the writing or the acting, which monologues come to your mind as the greatest ones?
Post your opinion here (it’s even better if you can post the link to a video) and maybe latter we can have a poll about it 🙂
Off the top of my head:
Sister Jude’s squirrel monologue in AHS: Asylum
Sister Jude’s drunken monologue in AHS: Asylum
Walt’s “confession” tape in Breaking Bad
Belize’s description of Heaven in Angels in America (3:04 – 4:40)
Ethel Rosenberg at Roy Cohn’s deathbed in Angels in America (2:55 – 4:30)
I’m pretty sure I can remember a lot more, these are just a fewOctober 15, 2013 at 1:46 pm #304482

had a thing for a girl once. And I had a shot at her, but I didn’t
take it. For a little while, I’d lay in bed every night, wondering if
was a mistake—wondering if I’d ever stop thinking about her. And now, I
can barely even remember what she looks like. I mean, her face,
it’s—she’s just gone. And she ain’t never coming back. So, is three
long enough to get over someone? Absolutely.”
