Last night, as I tried to cure the worst headache ever invented with an M&M McFlurry while watching old episodes of Fringe in my boxers, I was reminded how much I hate it when people on TV don't say goodbye before hanging up the phone.
(For whatever reason, the video I tried embedding has been disappearing on people. If you are looking at this post and there is no video, consider opening this link in a new tab, eh? LINK.)
I'm supposed to buy that Pacey (Joshua Jackson will always be Pacey. And Pacey will always be so nommy to me, even during the season when he's actually with Joey and fat and sort of gross looking but it's okay because he's still nommy) isn't on the other end going DAMMIT! WHAT ABOUT THE KID? HELLO? HELLOOOO?
Because that's exactly what I would be doing.
That very unlikely phone conversation all in the name of exposition would be SO MUCH BETTER if we could just sneak in an "oh, okay, goodbye" at the end. Growl.
I have a similar real life problem and I think I can trace it all back to being Hispanic.
