“Be diligent. I sense something dire on the horizon!”
I really love how this scene was done. It was subtle, but having sensed that something was very wrong you can imagine that the sound of the cheese phone was the very last thing Splinter wanted to hear. It only lasts a few seconds but throughout it you can feel the unease and hesitation, like he knows he needs to answer but he also knows there’s a chance that what he’ll hear on the other line will shatter his world all over again.
