If I haven't responded to a comment, it's because I haven't responded to it yet, not because it's wrong. So don't assume that because an unanswered comment has your guess that your guess must be wrong! :)

Oh, happy happy happy. This ep made me cry within the first four minutes. By the title sequence, I was giggling with glee. This is totally my show. Just watching it makes me happy. Bless them for creating it, and for writing it so well, and especially for putting it on Mondays. Mondays need a happy thing in them most of all.

I watched this on Monday, but forgot to quote my favourite parts at the time.

Cut for spoilers. )

Me, with both fists suddenly pumping in the air: "WOOOHOOOO!"
Kevin, from over in his office: "...Did you just cheer -- out loud -- at the TV?"
Me: "....Maybe. So what if I did?"

Oh my god. My favourite shows are almost all cop/forensic shows, with liberal side-helpings of paranormal investigators and medical puzzle-solvers. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD THIS QUESTION IS TO ANSWER.

Like. Gee. Where do I start? Should I get Charlie Crews quoting zen at Bones? (Her reply: "What does that mean? I don't understand what that means.") Should we throw Booth in with the Criminal Minds gang and watch Penelope hit on him so hard he goes running off behind a potted plant to hide? Maybe Elvis Cole could gently steer Sherlock Holmes by the elbow to someplace where he'll be more useful than staring at the computer monitors like they're going to eat his face. Harry Desden will sit around wisecracking with Dean Winchester about the perils of ladyfolk (because Nancy Drew wouldn't give either of them the time of day) while Sam is all LOOK GUYS COULD WE PLEASE FOCUS HERE THERE'S A GIRL IN TROUBLE. And then he'll throw a pained look at Reese and she'll give him the commiseratingly nonplussed one, because welcome to the story of her career, and Olivia Dunham will catch it and smile but not say anything because she's got an image to live up to and mostly it involves being Tragically Strong but Silent™. And meanwhile Vimes and Thusday Next are off in the corner together nodding their heads over something that will be revealed to be uproariously funny in the narrative version, while Peter Bishop is trying to keep his dad from attaching electrodes to my head, and Joe Pike would just stand there with his arms crossed like geez, who let these fucking yahoos in here, and and and...

Well. To put it simply, it would be mess. Or at least it would be a mess until Hotch swooped in to get everyone organized and on task. After that it would be fine. But by god, I would not be in trouble anymore.

(Though I might try to make out with House because oh goodness doctor I am so ill and that bad man did very bad things to me and only you can do my physical exam! Heh heh heh.)

H: "Does it bother you that we have no social contract?"
W: "Heh. My whole life is one big compromise. I tiptoe around everyone like they're made of china. I spend all my time analyzing! 'What will the effect be if I say this?' Then there's you. You're a reality junkie. If I offered you a comforting lie, you'd smack me over the head with it. Let's not change that."

I'm noticing that my favourite shows kind of go in a neat spectrum:
Life (straight-up police work) → CSI (police/forensics) → Bones (forensics/medical) → House MD (straight-up medical)

This amuses me probably more than it should.
