True South

(And Alicia is the only person, essentially, to whom he's admitted this, which is when their relationship really started in earnest, because that's when he started giving her things: When she admitted she was asking whether he did it just because she herself needed to know. That he'd tempted her to look down the hole; that she'd gotten just a little bit tainted by the grotesque. Then it was creepy art, favors, whatever he thought she would like. Because he knows that every gift is redeemable for a little piece of her, and because the game of finding ways to make her accept them is analogous to a relationship, in his twisted head. If he just makes that point enough times, I think, eventually she'll like him back -- but more importantly she will have been changed.)

Colin, abject: "I like you, Alicia. Why don't you like me?"
Alicia: "You killed your wife?"
Colin: "And there's nothing I can do about that?"
Alicia, weighing it: "Um, testify on this case?"
Colin: "Would that help you?"
Alicia: "It would help forty families suing Hammett Aerospace."
Colin: "Yes, and I'm sure they're all adorable, but will it help you."

Just perfection. Even Alicia is like, "Oh, fuck. This is somehow going to end in my grisly murder, I just know it."


Alicia: "So thanks for waiting for me, I had to interview Hannibal Lecter. Can I get you a coffee?"
Tutor: "No-just-tell-me-what-we-are-doing-here-so-I-can-go-back-to-being-weird."
Alicia: "You're doing a great job as tutor, but I'm confused about the dancing thing."
Tutor: "I-like-making-them."

Alicia: "You're what, 22? You know my daughter is 14."
Tutor: "We-are-friends."
Alicia: "Just talking to you makes my skin crawl."

Alicia: "But okay so like, why do you make these videos?"
Tutor: "I-like-making-them."
Alicia: "Right but like what are they for."
Tutor: "They-are-for-the-Internet."
Alicia: "So wait, like, you make money from them?"
Tutor: "You-don't-really-understand-the-Internet."
Alicia: "Honey, I don't really understand art. You just make things? For your own enjoyment?"
Tutor: "That-is-what-I-am-saying."
Alicia: "That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard."

That whole conversation made me laugh so much, just Alicia's jaw-dropped discovery of the concept of making art. She is many wonderful things, but that is not where her creativity resides. She's a workhorse, not a show pony. I mean, can you imagine Alicia Florrick taking, like, a pottery class? Or a cooking class? Line dancing?
