What do these lines mean? please help.. Richie: Look, we all have our things that sound dumb to others. It helps me, okay? Some people have pills, other people have drugs. Patrick: Yeah, I don't mean to be disrespectful, but isn't like taking responsibility out of your hands? And worse than that, putting it into somebody else's? Richie: You don't have to listen to her(fortuneteller, i think). Patrick: Yeah, but the seed is planted. What do these line mean "isn't like taking responsibility out of your hands?" and "the seed is planted" in this context? I'm not a English native speaker so If you could help me understand these lines, I'd deeply appreciate your help :)

In this context; "isn't like taking responsibility out of your hands?" - Would mean not taking responsibility for your own actions or choices. When you leave your choices to someone else you "take them out of your hands" "the seed is planted" - Would mean that the fortunteller has given him an idea. And once you have an idea in your head it is hard to remove. Hence "the seed has been planted"
