Quote of the Day

Stephen’s eyes gleamed as he took it and turned it slowly round and round in his hands. ‘Oh thank you, thank you, Jack,’ he cried. ‘It is perfect — the very apotheosis of a tooth.’

‘There were some longer ones, well over a fathom, but they had lost their tips, and I thought you would like to get the point, ha, ha, ha.’ It was a flash of his old idiot self, and he wheezed and chuckled for some time, his blue eyes as clear and delighted as they had been long ago: wild glee over an infinitesimal grain of merriment.

Buffy the Vamipire Slayer – Season 2: Episode 21 – “Becoming (Part 1)”

Reaction: Agents of SHIELD – “Laws of Nature”

Agents of SHIELD Cast - Season 3

Agents of SHIELD is back for season three! We’ve had a long summer, complete with two Marvel Cinematic Universe films, to speculate on the myriad of cliffhangers from last season’s shocking, action-packed finale. We were left with a resolution of sorts to the confrontation with Daisy’s parents and the Inhumans, but also with the promise of plenty more to come as a reunited SHIELD takes a more active role in the Inhuman situation. Coulson lost a hand, May left on vacation, Bobbi was tortured, Ward is the new head of HYDRA, and the Terrigen crystals were lost into the ocean, there to spread into unsuspecting fish oil bottles around the world. Oh yeah, and Simmons was sucked into the mysterious Kree monolith! Our first episode of the fall didn’t resolve all of these mysteries, but it took a first step along SHIELD’s new course, giving us a look at the direction things are heading, introducing new characters and threats, and setting a strong tone out of the gate. So let’s jump right into season three with “Laws of Nature,” written by Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen and directed by Vincent Misiano.

Simon: You need me to look at that?

Mal: Just a graze.

Simon: So, where do you plan on dumping us?

Mal: There’s places you might be safe. You want the truth, though, you’re probably safer on the move. And we never stop moving.

Simon: I’m confused. No wait, I — I think maybe you’re confused.

Mal: It may have become apparent to you that the ship could use a medic. You ain’t weak. I don’t know how bright you are, top three percent, but you ain’t weak and that’s not nothing. You live by my rule, you keep your sister from doing anything crazy, you could maybe find a place here. ‘Til you find a better.

Simon: I’m trying to put this as delicately as I can… How do I know you won’t kill me in my sleep?

Mal: You don’t know me, son. So let me explain this to you once: If I ever kill you, you’ll be awake, you’ll be facing me, and you’ll be armed.

Simon: Are you always this sentimental?

Mal: Had a good day.

Simon: You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages… half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you’re harboring known fugitives.

Mal: We’re still flying.

Simon: That’s not much.

Mal: It’s enough.
