another meme I won’t finish - [4/20] male characters - John Crichton
“I’ve got a strange life here, Dad. It’s different, but it’s my own. I have people who rely on me, people I care about, people who mystify me and people who’ve become allies, friends… and people who teach me patience, and people who teach me… other things. Well, you said the time would come, and I think it has. I have a job to do and I am unafraid… that’s what you said when they asked you what it was like to walk on the moon. You did good, Dad. You taught me well. This is John Crichton… somewhere in the universe.”

I was watching TV last night, and there was a group of fans. They were all painted green. Stripped all the way down to their skivvies. And they were at a football game. You know, if you’re wearing Brett Favre’s jersey, you’re normal, and if you’re dressed up as a Klingon, you’re not. I don’t get it.

How much my twelve-year-old self would have loved to hear one of her sci-fi heroes say that.
