You know the running gag in the Rashomon job where Sophie’s accent goes from worse to worser? (What am I saying, of course you do). Well, hear me out.
That was totally the OT3 messing with her on purpose.
I mean, come on. Eliot is the one who started it.
Eliot ‘that’s a very distinctive static’ Spencer.
Eliot Troll Master Extraordinaire Spencer.
ELIOT SPENCER claimed he could hear no difference between Sophie’s RP and whatever the hell that atrociousness was supposed to be (Cockney? Idk).
And of course Hardison. Alec ‘Age of the Geek’ Hardison, who repurposes satellites so he can watch Dr. Who while they’re on a mission. Hardison knows his British sci-fi and fantasy classics and he knows damn well that the dwarves in LOTR sound different than the hobbits.
But if Eliot wants to mess with Sophie, who is Hardison not to rise to that occasion as well?
And Parker… I’m not sure she understands why the boys made Sophie sound so funny, but damn if she isn’t going to join in. And crank it up to 11 while she’s at it.
