Death may have taken Barry, but it can’t take our memories of him. Those wonderful and perfect and beautiful memories. Those, thank God, are ours to keep.

#this scene though#this is them#this is their friendship#her teasing was playful and not mean#it didn’t put maura down#in fact the meaning behind it makes maura smile#that’s good teasing#that is old jane#that is how their friendship should’ve progressed all along#i love this scene so much#and the end when maura realizes jane doesn’t intend to live a day without her and she lights up like the sun????#jane may not say the words i love you#but she says it in so many other ways#and maura doesnt let those moments pass her by (via titflick)
Simone de Beauvoir, After the War
"We are more than a bit concerned with the Benihana egg trick called for in the script. I’ve tried it and can only get it 1 out of 4 tries, and I’ve seen Benihana chefs flub the manoeuver when they have an entire grill as target. Mads has to crack his eggs into a 8-inch diameter skillet. The props Master calls his guy. The Production Manager calls in his guy. I call my guy. On the morning of the shoot we have 8 dozen eggs and 3 Japanese chefs with their hands made up to be hand doubles.
I guess I don’t have to tell you that when Mads arrives on set, he just tosses an egg up in the air and the egg breaks on the spatula. No problem. Unbelievable. I insist it was a lucky fluke but he does it again. I accuse him of practicing when I wasn’t looking but he laughs (as if he has time to practise egg-cracking between scenes) and tells me he was a juggler in his youth.” [x]
And here we all thought we’d have a million outtakes of Mads flubbing the egg trick…

In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:

- Arguing without crying
- Having a normal sleep pattern
- Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’
I’m so fucked
