This was a completely intentional, foreshadowing shot. Betty spent this episode *really* coming to terms with the fact that she and Archie were never going to be more than friends. Then later, when Betty turns, Jughead comes completely into focus, while Archie does not. It’s like she was finally seeing him for the first time. This was 100% meant to be the first Bughead moment and they didn’t even know it yet (Well, maybe Jughead knew it. But Betty sure didn’t.) And it gives me butterflies Every. Single. Time.
everything about this scene is super extra and very sunny, frank declaring his son as a prostitute, mac’s reaction as “GOOD”, That Iconic Dennis Delivery, the gang’s general self-deception & yelling over each other and mac’s unforgettable line at the end
that scene in httyd where toothless draws on the ground with a log and hiccup has to dance around the lines and there’s this really beautiful and spirited music playing and it ends with hiccup in front of toothless and he’s holding out his hand and looking away and toothless touches his snout to hiccup’s hand like. that scene always gets me and idk why but it’s honestly one of the most memorable and fucking beautiful moments in cinematic history.
ok i need to talk about this particular part of TDM that’s seemingly always slept on because it’s one of my All Time favourite scenes and it’s so important
In Chapter 20 (page 312), there’s this section:
“What?” he whispered. “What are you smiling about?”
My fingers brushed against his hair, trying to smooth it down. I realized what I was doing a full minute after Liam had closed his eyes and leaned into my touch. Embarrassment flared up in my chest, but he grabbed my hand before I could pull back and tucked it under his chin.
“Nope,” he whispered, when I tried to tug it away. “Mine now.”
Dangerous. This is dangerous. The warning was fleeting, banished to the back corners of my mind, where it wouldn’t interrupt how good it felt to touch him—how right.
“I’m going to need it back eventually,” I said, letting him run it along the stubble on his chin.
THIS SCENE means so much to me, let’s reflect on why really quick:
My queen, Ruby Elizabeth Daly, has spent the last six years of her life in the most treacherous conditions, terrified to touch or be touched by anybody. This poor cinnamon roll has lived in fear from the age of ten onward. Here in front of her, she has this beautiful boy with the bluest eyes and the kindest heart, who has been soOoo patient with her since they met.
This scene, friends and neighbours, is so incredibly important because Ruby is letting herself, for the first time in six damn years, touch not only another person, but someone who she holds so much care for. In her mind, she knows it’s dangerous, but guys!! She’s pushing past the fear and giving into something that she wants for the first time in so freaking long!! This particular moment (to me) is so symbolic of what’s to come for her and Liam because when she reaches out to him, Lee keeps her there with him, letting her know that !!!!! it’s okay to want to go for what you want—that he’s not going to let this fear keep him from being with her or there for her. That he’s not going to leave, even if Ruby pulls away because of what she is afraid of; especially if she’s afraid of what she’s going to do to him without intentions of inflicting pain—especially if she is afraid of herself, because Liam understands Ruby, and will never, never, never leave her to fight her demons alone.
After they have this marvelous little (massive) moment, Ruby Tuesday starts to open up to Puppy Lee about her Orange abilities as he inquires. When she tries to pull away after he asks if she was in his head (because TDM Chapter 20 Ruby chooses flight rather than fight in most situations), Liam holds on tighter, telling Ruby that he isn’t mad (because he knows this about TDM Chapter 20 Ruby). THEN !!! when they’re holding hands, Liam asks if it’s okay—and we all know that if she said no, he would have nodded with a smile and let her hand go, but wouldn’t have left her side. This entire passage is so symbolic of their relationship guys!!!! The patience, the reaching out, the holding on even when things get tough? Not only this, but all of the following Luby Rubiam parts happen because of this one?? This scene means the world to me and I can’t stress it or its importance enough.
Frasier 1x01 // 11x24 ↳ The actor Cleto Augusto played the delivery man who dropped off Martin’s easy chair in the first episode and picked it up in the last. Outside of the five main castmembers, he is the only actor to appear in both episodes.
