???? If anyone knows, please tell me what "The Big Three" are. Opera is one. What are the others?
Never heard this expression before. Have you?
(My first two posts came at 8:19 and 8:43. Then I realized that I wasn't logged in. So this is a continuation. Sorry for any confusion. And even now I'm getting error messages about login.)
When Gibbs said at the end to "show him who you are" I found that to be really touching. That conversation which was about Adam and the Admiral at the same time was great. I liked it that Gibbs didn't say to "tell him what you do" but instead to "show him who you are."
Gibbs sees Tim as more than what he does and he feels that the person Tim is worth seeing.
Oh, I'm having trouble putting this into words. This was different from any other flashback episode I can remember seeing in any show ever. I think it was because the flashbacks were so vivid - in full-color, present time. Don't sure if that is clear to you all.
What I really appreciated was that the history which they showed was only inside Abby's head - her memories and reflections. The others were mostly reacting just to the unusual behavior which they saw.
Also, it was sweet that McGee went to find Abby, even though he didn't know what to say to her. And then at the end of the episode she's sitting next to his desk trying over and over to write an apology, but she can't figure what to say to him.
At the end she is sitting on the floor cross-legged, like a little girl might, looking at the heart(the best part of the bear) and the fortune about a new family, (which had come true) - that was just a beautiful moment.
It's sort of cliche to say this, but this really was one of my favorite episodes in all ten seasons, and one of the best written. Kudos to all the cast and crew who pulled this together so well.
