-sophie showing up at her own funeral. Twice.
-nate running up 15 flights of stairs and stopping on every floor to press the elevator button just to piss off Sterling
-“he must’ve had some good qualities” “none. Not even in bed”
-sophie throwing off her trench coat to reveal a rapelling harness, and Parker running to her while Sterling’s shouting for the agents to catch them
-eliot knocking out 4 guys before Hardison’s bag hits the floor
-“if you eat a snakes heart, you consume its soul”
I feel like it’s really easy to lean towards categorising Sophie as the mom friend but like, no. no Sophie is the Cool aunt who’s always slightly tipsy and whisks you away for impromptu shopping trips and lets you drink but Eliot, Eliot is the mom friend.
honestly? that bit in the maltese falcon job where nate literally runs up 30 flights of stairs pushing the up elevator button at each floor, and the subsequent reaction shots of an increasingly disgruntled sterling, is probably the best scene in television history
I’ve just been thinking today about how amazing a show Leverage is. I mean you have a drunk-ex-insurance guy who is a genius who’s whole goal in life is to help people (ie. while simultaneously being a control hungry bastard), a woman who could con herself into being queen of the universe while drunk, a dangerous ex-military guy who can filet a steak or punch you unconscious or be trusted with your firstborn because he’s phenomenal with kids, a hacker with skills like nobody’s business and charisma like woah, and finally the best thief in the entire world who loves cereal more than life. I just…LEVERAGE. I’ve seen it beginning to end like 3 times over and it’ll never be enough.
