Hey, ABC, regarding your "shat-tastic" promos: you do know that "shat" is the past tense of "shit," right? Yeah, that's fucked-errific work right there.
Kate's in full on suburban hausfrau mode as she rolls her shopping cart down the frozen food aisle. Her cell phone rings. She smiles as she checks the call display and answers. "Hey, you," she says. It's Cap'n Firefly, on duty, in his car. It's pouring rain, at night. He asks "gorgeous" what's for supper tonight. "It's taco night," she says. "You're making tacos?" he says, all incredulous, because tacos are such a difficult gourmet item to make. She giggles and says he better like 'em, too. "Or you don't get any dessert," she says, which led to this:
Daniel: I know what's for dessert: another taco!
Mrs. Daniel: [Glares at Daniel]
Daniel: I said, I bet dessert is another taco!
Mrs. Daniel: I can't believe I'm married to you.
Daniel: You mean that in a good way, right?
Mrs. Daniel: [silence]
Daniel: I said, you mean that in a good way, right?
Anyway, Kate says she'll be home in a little while. But not before she goes running across the parking lot to a phone booth (which says "Palmetto" on it). She puts coins in the slot and dials a number, then pulls a kitchen timer from her purse, sets it, and puts it on top of the phone box.
And hey, it's her old buddy Agent Morris answering the phone! If she didn't invite him to the wedding, this could get kind of awkward. "It's me," she says. Morris whistles for a colleague and gestures with his phone, so his buddy begins tracing the call, presumably. Morris says something about the Feast of the Ascension and how there've been a lot of holy days gone by since they talked, and blah blah blah, and all I could think of was how much better this scene was when Leonardo DiCaprio called Tom Hanks. Kate says she doesnât want to run anymore. "What his name?" asks Morris. Kate doesn't say anything. "Does he know who you are?" is his next question. She doesn't answer that either. "Edward, please. I know you don't want to spend the rest of your life chasing me. I love this guy. Please let me go." Hey, Kate: you think he's going to let you go just because you said "please"? Morris, clearly trying to keep her on the line as long as possible, slowly says that if she's really going to stay put and settle down, he'll stop chasing her. Kate's silent for a long time as she thinks about it. "But you and I both know that's not going to happen," he adds. And then the timer goes off and she quickly hangs up.
