The problem with a history of depression and anxiety is that you can never know if you’re “just having one of those weeks” or if you’re sliding back down into those places you swore you’d never go again.
One of the best out takes from any television show, ever.
HE FUCKING STRAIGHT-FACED THAT

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT STEVE TRIED TO TRIGGER BUCKY’S MEMORIES BY WEARING HIS LESS DURABLE RETRO!UNIFORM (aka the not-so-bulletproof outfit he wore the last time Bucky saw him) AND BY QUOTING SOMETHING BUCKY SAID TO HIM 70-SOMETHING YEARS AGO
Okay okay but can we just talk about this? The entire movie Steve’s worth is defined by what Captain America has become. He goes to the Smithsonian to see Captain America’s life projected back at him — the boy he was before a footnote, the sickly waif who wasn’t good enough until the army (literally) made him A Man — while he’s there he walks around unrecognized; the entire gag at the mall is based on the idea that this is a 6’2” hulking muscled mass of a guy who absolutely no one recognizes unless he has that star on his chest, because it’s the suit, not the person, who’s been given worth. And when Steve thinks about the most memorable thing about himself — when he thinks about how to get Bucky back — he goes for that. He goes for Captain America. And it doesn’t work; Bucky doesn’t react at all. Because Bucky always saw through that. He didn’t give a shit about Captain America. That “little guy from Brooklyn,” that’s the kid he loved, that’s the one he was following when he died, the one who’s scared voice knocked the memories out of him earlier in the movie. And it’s only when Steve drops the shield, and the helmet — all of the things that make him Captain America, that make him immediately recognizable to the rest of the country, to the world — when he calls on this one, rogue memory from when they were just kids, from before he was the national ideal of manhood he’s been made out to be since his death… That’s when Bucky sees him. Because Bucky doesn’t remember, or care about Captain America: Captain America is just a target. But Steve Rogers, that little kid from Brooklyn? Is under him, and dying, and scared…and the impulse to protect is so much stronger than anything else that’s been done to Bucky since then.
Fun fact. The two times Bucky remembers Steve are when Steve is half-beaten-up and scared and calling his name, and when Steve is bleeding and almost dead beneath him. Bucky sees Steve when he looks the most like the Steve he was in childhood, the one Bucky protected and fought for long before that costume and that mask and that shield.
This is the kid who he pulled up from the playground after the bullies knocked him down. This is the kid who got into fights with people much bigger than him and knocked him flat. This is the kid needed him to watch his back. And that’s when he remembers.

I needed this just now.
I HAVE SEARCHED ACROSS THE AGES FOR THIS GIFSET
OH GOD THIS IS SO GREAT
Why did dusk and fir-scent and the afterglow of autumnal sunsets make people say absurd things?
This is so beautiful
Best thing about Colbert is that when he nails it, he nails it.
I feel like Colbert is one of the best examples of religious you can ever get. He’s Catholic. He’s one of 11 kids. He teaches SUNDAY SCHOOL. And it never comes off like he’s judging you because you don’t follow his exact path.
I’m an atheist, and I feel like Colbert gets me in a lot of ways. It means a lot.
Love Stephen Colbert.
