My turn to ramble!  

I've been withholding judgment on TP for its treatment of women, but this
episode really sickened me.  Shelley sprawling on the floor by the fridge
in terror, totally unable to do *anything*, just like Jessica Lange in that
bad remake of "King Kong", tripping and falling and then just lying there
screaming as the monster comes plodding closer and closer.  Jeez!  I tried
to justify it by thinking "Well, Shelley's been terrorized by Leo for so
long and is so shocked that he's awake that she's just *paralyzed* with
terror!"  But still.

Oh well, at least she finally grabbed that knife and stabbed him.  But she
shoulda stabbed him in the HEART, not the leg!

Then, having to cut from that to the Playboy Bunny Widow was a bit much.
And then when Coop is remembering Caroline, we get this misty-looking
blonde with windblown-hair, straight out of a Certs commercial.  She looked
totally unmemorable -- just another Face.  I was hoping she'd be someone 
interesting-looking and strong, like Sid.  Too much to hope for, I guess.

WE looks interesting -- I liked his entrance, all shadowed and ghostly.

Least favorite moment:  the revival of "Just you and I"!
	Just yooooo
	And iiiiii
	Just yooooo
	And iiiiii...
	Tooo-gether....

Ben quoted Shakespeare again.  "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers"
is from Henry V, when the king (Henry V) is rallying his troops for the
battle of Agincourt.

Fave Quotes:

Coop: Windom Earle's mind is like a diamond; it's cold and hard and brilliant.

Jacoby:  What he needs right now is both your understanding and a Confederate 
	victory.

Briggs:	I will be in the shadows if you need me.  (?!)

[approximate quote.  Please fix!]
Jacoby:  What she does have is a heightened sexual drive, and a working
	knowledge of technique, [? anatomy and sensation?] that few men have 
	ever had the pleasure to experience, or the skill to match.
Harry:	Is it hot in here?
Coop & Hawk:  Yup.
[yeah, I didn't like the *concept*, but it was funny.]
