"Negative this time"
This line basically means two things:
1) Even if he is clearly sad he doesn’t blame her not for a second
2) Oh you all know what I’m about to say here!
OK I’m on a rant here. I know it was needed for the big dramatic search and rescue etc but the end of this phone call really burns my buns. The woman you’re in love with and thought you’d never have rings you and tells you she’s not going to be a nun anymore and she’s coming back to you. Then your call gets interrupted. Do you say;
A) “duty calls” and hang up or
B) “do NOT under any circumstances move from that phone. I have to go and check a patient, I will ring you back in 5. Don’t DARE go anywhere, I am in no way finished with you!”
Yes Patrick you eejit. Think about it…
Totally! I thought the same exact thing. “Tell her you’ll pick her up! Dammit, tell her to wait and you’ll come for her!” …but then we wouldn’t have had the lovely, romantic meeting on the misty road…and the nail-biting pursuit… with cute Timmy hanging out the window like a Labrador Retriever!
Sometimes I get the feeling that (although, Patrick and Shelagh are probably quite chaste couple) they take the chaste too far. And yes, maybe he did not know what to expect, maybe he did not (dare to) believe that she would really not be a nun anymore, but come on… The woman you’ve been writing to, diligently, every week, who until now, has not answered your letters, calls you (which is the only second call she makes), calls you first and tells you that she is leaving and coming back to Poplar. And i get it, you have duties and to be fair, the did show him anxiously driving towards her, but still. Maybe the 2014 girl in me does not get the 1958 romance :)
I know I know, but I love him even more for that! In my opinion he has always seen much pain in his life and he believes is not the kind of man who completely loses his head over a woman - not at his age - and stops thinking rationally, he is already making a very irrational choice by “pursuing” a nun and I think that upsets him a lot. So there is this war inside him between the old rational Patrick who goes around doing his job and new passionate Patrick (Hello you!) who pursues a nun because that’s the only woman he wants. It’s plain that he’d rather stay at the phone forever, but he has duties he can’t put aside… I always wondered how he ended up wrtiting to her, if he thought a lot about it before doing it or if it was something he couldn’t help like the kiss scene (Heidi don’t worry, you didn’t write a kiss scene, I was referring to the hand kiss)… it must have been passion because he wouldn’t have kept on writing with no answer in return…. and this struggle is so charming I will spend my afternoon crying!
OMG, the New Zealand version is offline tomorrow….
This is a lovely addition but surely when you’re talking to your fiancée 2 days before your wedding about how you are counting the days till she moves in, you’d give her a sodding kiss. How can they have that conversation with not only room for the Holy Spirit but all of the disciples and their families in between them.
How to delete one of the hottest
Patrick scenes ever…
I never post pictures of myself in here, but when I do they look fucking vintage o.O
A bloody bird pooped on my hair while I was studying with a friend in the park. I felt something strange on my head so I touched it with a hand.
Note to self: Never ever do that again!
It was hot, sticky and stank like hell
My friend started laughing like a crazy and I was like “excuse me could you just stop laughing at my misery and help me with this shit… literally??”
So she tried to remove it, but it wouldn’t leave and I ended up with a handkerchief on my hair to isolate the disgusting thing.
Thank you Nature for this awesome afternoon
