SPOILERS, maybe... Okay, now that I have hit the end of the purple corridor, I am just going to admit that I have fallen down a rabbit hole from which I have no intention of crawling out. "Not sure" to "die-hard fan" and "now Im going to hunt down every Jessica Jones issue I can" in two days flat......yeah, this is probably that part where you mutter "well, THAT escalated quickly" sideways, to no one in particular. Yes, there will be many a-card a-comin'! ♡♡♡♡♡ I just want to tell everyone who likes fast-paced repartee...wit certainly abounds in the realm of Jessica Jones. I'd like to share a handful of my favorites (OH so MANY to choose from!).
I am so sorry. Kilgrave's mother says this. If you're a Whovian, you'll understand. Or maybe it was just me. Bad time to laugh out loud, for sure! But I can't help the way my mind works.
Malcolm: You use sarcasm to distance people. Jessica: And yet you're still here. Now go the hell home! No, sarcasm is not an effective deterrent. If anything, it draws crowds.
Jessica: If you're so great, why'd they let you out of Spec Ops? Simpson: It's classified. Jessica: Of course it is. How convenient! {eye roll}
Jessica (narrative): Cheaters are good for business. A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that. Clients hire me to find dirt. And I find it, which shouldn't surprise them, but it does. Knowing it's real means they gotta make a decision. I'm not sure why, but I was getting some major Veronica Mars deja vu throughout this intro. Was it just me? I liked it, though!
Luke: There's... something between us. Kilgrave: But she lied to you. Luke: Yes. Then she told me everything. Kilgrave: Oh, look at that, Dad. Jessica being honest with someone. Tell me the truth, did you bugger my chances with her? Luke: No. You screwed that up yourself. Kilgrave: I'll have to think of a fitting response to that. I don't know about anyone else, but it was deeply satisfying when Luke so smoothly stole Kilgrave's thunder. ☆☆☆☆☆☆ I have more, lots more...but I want to know, what were your favorite lines? If you've watched the show, feel free to comment below! If you have not, this might be a good time to inject a Spoiler Alert...just in case! @shannonl5 @LAVONYORK @ButterflyBlu @danidee @hikaymm @InPlainSight @MichaelOgg @Kirooken @DerpyPantz @Lawlpool @ChosenKnight @GinTenma @nicolejb @Namrow @brandongromala @shantalcamara @superwholocked @DanRodriguez @imTANNERthanU @paulisaghost
@beannachtOraibh I know right I was cracking up with the DC comic jab references like "totally killing you with my lazer beam eyes" lol I felt really sorry for Malcolm but I was really glad with how everything ended for them both in the end.
@ChosenKnight I think Malcolm is a stringer character than he appears. He's just got a big heart that was damaged by his experience (trying not to spoil anything for those who haven't watched yet). That he doesn't leave at that one point speaks volumes for his inner strength, I think. @shannonl5 @Juiz88 I loved those lines, too! (And pleased to know I'm not the only uber geek that caught the references! LOL)
I need to check this out...It sounds right up my alley.
@ChosenKnight I definitely agree with you, I'm looking forward to that card! I'm hoping more of this gets addressed when Luke Cage comes out. It feels like the people working on Jessica Jones were very sympathetic to the realities of rape culture and what it means to be a victim. I'd like to see Luke Cage dealing with the realities of institutional racism. That being said, I think Jessica Jones did a bit better than Daredevil. I don't want to post spoilers though if you haven't seen it!
*stronger character
