First song you heard: Smoke On the Water Favorite video: Perfect Strangers Seen them live: No. Memory involving the band: Finding out that “Child in Time” was used in Twister (which happens to be one of my all-time favorite movies). My initial reaction was something along the lines of “Oh my gosh, really!?” and then I started thinking about where it may have been used. And then it hit me - I immediately started thinking about the scene where everybody goes after the first tornado and Dusty blasts some music and yells “It’s the wonder of nature, baby!” I had wanted to figure out what the name of that song was for years.
So I know this is kind of cheating, as drunk and disorderly is probably the most heinous crime on Elsie Tizzard’s rap sheet, but this lady is pure, uncut comedic magic and deserves a few minutes in the spotlight. Favorite guest star ever, bar none! I just adore her, quite as much as Jack does (very few people besides Phryne have the ability to make him smile!). If they ever did a 1920’s Melbourne version of COPS Elsie would most definitely be featured. The actress (Gillian Jones) is so damn good I completely forget she’s acting.
And that scene where she drags Hugh back to the station with a GSW is probably one of my favorites in the whole show…I just kept snickering to myself like an idiot the entire time I was making these gifs.
The only question I have is WHY isn’t this woman a series regular?!? Please, please, please bring Lizard back for Season 3!!
