    That has me thinking of a Torri bobble head doll.

    They throw in a reference to a conversation that the two of them had, in his bedroom, two years ago. A conversation that it's unlikely they would have talked about to anyone else.

    Then, he gives her shtick about peaking, followed by her actually peeking, and him giving her a cheeky once-over.

    Followed by "yeah, yeah, should be" from her in a way that I can't describe in words because it would probably overstate it, but there is subtext to it. With his words after that, in another show I could see it be followed by head nodding, that fake breathing sound (inhale or exhale, it depends on the user), and someone popping their lips.

    If I were writing this (heh, the show would have been cancelled after thirteen eps) the first thing I would have changed is the location. Bedroom scene - this isn't Days Of Our Lives FCOL! Put them in the mess hall. And get rid of that teasing, it makes them sound chummy. And tell them to stop making doe eyes at each other! Who is in charge of continuity - they should be picking up on stuff like that. Do I have to do everything here?


    Also, I think there was more dialogue in this scene. The way it is cut together makes it seem, to me at least, that there were extra lines that were cut out. It kinda chops and changes without the appropriate pauses between a subject change that would be present in a normal conversation.
    Very good analysis of that scene. I figure some of the writers cough*Gero*cough were too dense to realize exactly what they were writing.

    I only noticed recently how he gives her that once over. You know that wasn't in the script. Apparently the actors just did what they felt was right for the characters.

    I have too! It's really funny.

        On my iPad right now because I'm sitting up watching the lunar eclipse over the western US, so I'm not going to even try to mess with quotes on this thing, but gateraid? You're a madman! (In a good way!)

        And now, back to eclipse watching. See you all later!

        That is the best analysis of that scene I have ever seen. It makes you wonder why they couldn't see all these things that they insist didn't exist, yet if you listen to commentaries you know they did indeed know what they were doing. Yet they would come right out at cons and deny it. Strangely odd and what a way to shake up a fan base and make all of them hate you. Way to go guys. And look how it turned out. Wow. Someone should write a book on how not to put on a TV show.
        Thank you *blushes* It's a wonder they didn't start to say in mid s3 something to the effect of "well, you'll just have to watch the show and see which way it goes (sparky or sheyla)" instead of flat out denying it. Or "we haven't made up our minds yet". They could have gotten another year of non-committment with those answers, lol.

        Funny sort of on topic observation. Today's Washington Post features an article about some Presidential candidates who are using "sparks" in their ads. See, Sparky is everywhere. And some of them are wildly reminiscent of that scene in GUP. LOL
        Knowing politicians, the scene would be:

        What were you saying about the economy? I got distracted by all the sparks

        I thought you might. You didn't miss anything, I just talked for a while without actually answering your question

        Have you noticed the way he wobbles his head as he shifts his eyes back up to her face?

          I noticed how he shimmies his shoulders in a "look at my muscles" way. And then she puts her arms behind her back to say "I did, now look at my chest".

          I play in the "Fun and Games" section. It boosts your post count quite quickly.

          Can I have some cake?

            He didn't. Katie landed him.

                Yes, yes you do.

                Just making it clear - wasn't my vid. Just my favorite.

                I've never made a video. Right now I'm trying to make some sigs for my whump Secret Santa, only to discover the only idea I've come up with has already been done - BY my recipient!

                That's SO not right.


                Just made some pie crust. Damn, it sucks. Gonna buy it next time.

                  Congrats on the promo. I'd make you a cake but I'd just burn it. Today was one of those days, I overcooked cookies, a ham and a pan of biscuits. I thought something was wrong with my oven but it tests out okay. Just one of those days, I guess. Somehow we managed to choke it all down though.

                  And Sparky...I love fics where one of both of them are trying to cook. Why does fandom think they are both bad at it?

                    I just burned my dough, so I'm there with you.

                    As for Sparky not cooking, there was the scene in Irresistible where Lucius says Elizabeth is making him something to eat and John snaps his head around with a startled "What?!"

                          I loved that moment. I always wondered what he was more surprised by, that she was cooking or that she was cooking for Lucious. Or was he thinking about how she would never cook for him?

                          I haven't had an offer like that in a *looks around for Mr. SR* long time. Not creepy at all. You make perfect sense most of the time, so keep analyzing all you want.

                            I've wondered about that too. That episode definitely has a lot of awful, but it does have some cute moments as well.

                            She told ME she didn't cook. *pout*

                              If I remember what my dad has said before, the finger tips need to be at the end of your eye brow or tip of your glasses if you don't have a hat on or the tip of the brim if you have a hat on. The saluting arm most also be parallel to the ground as well.

                              SR, feel free to check with hubby and correct me if I'm wrong.

                                I've always liked younger men, except for Mr. SR of course. And John wasn't younger than Lizzie.
