screenshots from E01 Alive (part 3)
Clone: “Do you need a hug?”
Col. Black: “Don’t touch me.”
Clone: “Aw, that just makes me want to touch you more!”
Col. Black: “DON’T!”
Clone: “I’ll just stand extremely close to you then.”
Col. Black: “Are you smoking inside!?”
Sergeant: “We - we use them for realism, sir. Typically, a Middle Eastern torturer would be chain smoking.”
Col. Black: “Firstly, that’s a stereotype. Secondly, passive smoking kills, Sergeant! For all you know, I could be pregnant!”
Col. Black: “I don’t want to hear your prepositions, or your excuses! Get out! You’re fired from the Army! Get out.”
Anonymous asked: Yesterday I watched Coriolanus with my friends and they were all swooning over Tom and I really *tried* to keep calm but then there was this scene when the Romans find out that Martius is coming with an army and Menenius gets angry at the tribunes and I was like (quote): "Oh my god, FUCK ME" and they looked at me in horror. fml
I’ll let you into a secret, nonny. Angry!Mark characters are like the hottest thing ever. That scene is.. well. I saw it front row at the Donmar and…. fucking hell. I watched Scandal for the first time with my superdooper headphones on and I might have moaned a little (read a lot) at the whole “I wasn’t talking about the agent, Sherlock, I was talking about you!” bit. I mean. Bloody hell.
I feel your pain.
