Hedgehog or Fox?

"...Gabe, he's always picked the wrong women except for Judy; she's the first sane woman he ever fell for.
He's always attracted to the crazies, the nutcases for some reason...
I got a couple of theories about it: one is that deep down somewhere he knows it's not gonna work, so he suffers and that kind of atones for some sort of early guilt he's got. Over what I don't know...
Another is, you know, like all of us he grew up on movies and novels where doomed love was romantic."

- Jack (Sydney Pollack) talking about his friend Gabe (Woody Allen) in Allen's "Husbands and Wives".
