Real people don’t boil down to types as easily as television wants them to, and Britta’s got two halves. One of those halves is a cocksure, liberal kinda girl who’s sure that she can understand the world if she just tries hard enough and is compassionate enough. But the other half of that girl is a rather bitter girl who’s seen too much of her life slip by her and has turned a lot of anger inwards. She’s a prickly character, very smart and very compassionate but also not able to cut most people any slack. In her own way, she’s the most developed character on the show. She may not be the most easily lovable, but I feel like she’s shaping up to be something really new and special. - Todd VanDerWerff
"The truth is a member of our family is leaving. For a year, maybe more. Psychology has taught me the human mind has a tendency to re-channel separation anxiety in the form of frivolity and giddiness. And I don’t want us to waste our chance to acknowledge how much we’re gonna miss you."
