Sentimental Quotes From Netflix's Sweet Tooth to Use as Your Next Instagram Caption

Netflix'Sweet Tooth, based on the comic book of the same name by Jeff Lemire, has taken the world by storm—and we're just as swept up in it as everyone else is.

The story takes place 10 years after "The Great Crumble," a pandemic which wiped out much of humanity and resulted in part-human, part-animal hybrid children. After the death of his father, 10-year-old Gus leaves his secluded forest in search of his mother, discovering a dangerous world in which fearful humans hunt hybrids. It's a wild adventure from start to finish, with a surprising amount of heart—and we think its most quotable lines also work great as Instagram captions.
