On But Does the Dog Die?

@proudsquarepeg I bow to thee. This is what I get for spending the episode running back and forth to the kitchen to make popcorn and check on the brownies.

On But Does the Dog Die?

@proudsquarepeg But then how did Scully and her dad name the dog Queequeg, because didn't Scully's dad die BEFORE the Peter Boyle episode? (I'm not sure where the dog came from, but I distinctly remember how it got its name, which fits with Scully's dad calling her Starbuck.)

On But Does the Dog Die?

I was watching The X-Files on Netflix the other night, and in one episode, Scully was babysitting her mother's Pekinese and brought it along to investigate an American version of a Loch Ness Monster. Needless to say, Queequeg did not make it. Considering that Scully's mom had already sacrificed her other daughter to the X-Files, the loss of her dog seemed extra-unfair.

And will never see that Michelle Williams movie with the dog, because, NEVER.

On It's Still Complicated

@fondue with cheddar It does suggest that he is hopeless about the success of their efforts, which seems to imply that the situation itself is hopeless.

On It's Still Complicated

@fondue with cheddar The "hopelessly" is basically a passive-aggressive "um, no."

On Six Decades of Harriet the Spy Covers

@PennyCentury The scene where Harriet and her mom watch the crazy society dinner party at the inn is one of the funniest things I've ever read, with the crazy tea party in "Sport" as a close second.

"ZEENEY!" screamed Bunny.
"BUNNY!" screamed Zeeney. They rushed at each other like two gladiators. As Bunny was about to collide, Zeeney put out a stiff arm and he fell against her hand as though he'd walked into a parking meter.

On Six Decades of Harriet the Spy Covers

1964 = RIGHT.

ALL OTHERS = WRONG.

Tell me they didn't change the illustrations in the text itself, because I WILL FIND THEM AND CUT THEM. (The changers, not the illustrations.)
