MauzyDay ~ In One Word: DES!!!
Des is really, really SHINING! Right off the bat, we have him panicking with his clothing on fire (well, yeah b’y, of course he’s panicking!) and the whole stop-drop-and-run-or- is-it-roll scene….I wish I could capture his voice, it was too funny. I loved watching Des really trying to get into the private investigator role, complimenting and mimicking Jake, and Malachy.
Some memorable moments:
Great scene with Jake and Des with a frying pan hiding under the table … and then Janel sprays them with bear spray and Des hits Jake with the frying pan … and Des covering up the fact that he was the one that knocked Jake out. The frying pan gets a lot of mileage in this episode.
Loved the interrogation scene with Janel…Des mimicking Jake’s stance when he is questioning Janel, and then later mimicking Malachy with his arms crossed.
The ominous scene between Gossad and Leslie with him talking about Leslie paying for the drugs in some way other than money and Leslie retorting that she wouldn’t get naked for him, and Gossad threatening her she’ll get naked when he tells her to.
Then the scene with Hood warning Leslie — “They think you’re in too deep….Watch yourself, Bennett.”
Great scene between Tinny and Crocker and then later Kathleen finding out about Tinny seeing Crocker and telling her to be careful, “because he’s charming and he’s brilliant, but also, take everything that he says with a grain of salt.” Hmmm.
And last, but not least, Jake and Leslie: ”Leslie, please tell me that you’re OK…”
“I’m fine. I am. The only problem is I like it, this job, I’m kickin’ ass and I don’t want to stop.”
Leslie, Leslie, Leslie….be careful girl!
And the ending kiss:
Des to Jake, panicking as his clothing is burning, Jake telling him to stop running:
“No, no, no…I’ve got to stop, drop and run….or is it roll…should I run, should I run?…OR SHOULD I ROLLLLLLLLLL!!!! (I wish I could capture the sheer desperation/exasperation in his voice when he says “rollllllll”).
Des to Tinny after she tells him Crocker is her biological father:
Tinny to Des about Crocker:
I just want to look him in the eye, you know…see what’s behind the terrible man we know about.
Gossad and Leslie:
Gossad: ”Unless you can think of a better way to pay me…”
Leslie: “I’m not gettin’ naked for ya dealer.”
Gossad: ”You’ll get naked when I tells ya to.”
Jake and Des breaking into Janel’s house:
Jake: “Des, just try to be quiet…”
Des: “See, you’re always teachin’….I think you’d be a wonderful dad.”
Jake: “What? What are you talkin’ about …”
Des falls through window and onto floor:
Des: “Oh, my knee…(Jake hits him in the arm)….Oh, my arm!”
Des: “Hello..”(Jake punches him in the arm again!)
After Janel bear sprays Jake and Des:
Des: ”Jake, Jake, I think I got them” … (after hitting Jake with frying pan) ….”Jake”…(reaches over blindly and realizes Jake isn’t there because he knocked him out) …”Oh, crappo.”
Jake (pointing over to Des as he tries to reposition the U.S. Marshall on the couch and checks out his burned shirt):
Jake: ”Does he look like an assassin’s apprentice to you?”
Janel: ”Good point.”
Tinny and Crocker at the jail interview:
Tinny: ”Are you going to play nice?”
Crocker: “Are you going to drop that snotty tone?”
Tinny: “If I leave, we both know that the best conversation you’re going to have today is with your homicidal bunkmate.”
Leslie to Hood:
Jake and Malachy interrogating a groggy Des after he’s been knocked out:
Jake: “You’ve got to try to remember what happened.”
Des: ”Yes. I knows, I knows, but I can’t remember what I knows, you know.”
Malachy: “What list, what are we talking about?”
Des: “Oh, list. List, list, yes list, I knows about a list, too”….(gets up and faints to floor)
