“He’s such an idiot for hurting you.” They said, tossing words left and right into the bottom of the sea.
“No, you’re wrong. He’s not.” I replied. If fact, he’s anything but an idiot. He was my world. I thought he was my future. When you loved someone, it’s hard to talk bad about them, not matter how bad they hurt you. As they just rolled their eyes, thinking how clueless I am, I keep my eyes from spilling gallons of water because I miss you. I’m the idiot, the idiot for not being good enough.
T-Minus 15 sleeps until BMAM-Mass! In the spirit of @thepurrbutton ‘s wonderful series reminding us just how nuanced, complex and wonderful Bernie Wolfe is, I was thinking again about this piece of dialogue from Back in the Ring
“Well how about this, Serena Campbell, Occam’s Razor. For every accepted explanation of a phenomenon there are an incomprehensible number of possible and more complex alternatives.”
It seems to me, the perhaps Bernie could apply this to her relationship with Serena when she returns home. Her whole life has been dominated by difficulty with emotional choices. But now, if she’s brave enough….
Serena Campbell. An incomprehensible, more complex alternative.
Extra Serena Campbell Bonus as illustrated with shitty, poor resolution screenshots. This is Serena’s face in the exact moments when Bernie begins to say her name. Bernie and Serena are verbally sparring as they walk down the hall and Serena’s face is fairly neutral but the moment Bernie says her name, Serena’s face lights up in a smile that could power Holby. Tell me this ins’t the look of someone in love.
