Now, it's on to the flower market. Benjamin reminds us that Dream Team is going to be using color as their cohesive element. We see Amanda asking someone if a flower that she is looking at is too Christmas-y. She interviews that she doesn't like flowers. She doesn't get them. She doesn't like their lines. I mean, I don't want to say that this makes me wonder if Amanda has a black soul, but... it's certainly a unique point-of-view. I don't think I've ever really heard of someone being that turned off by an entire huge section of things that live on this planet. Like, almost every plant has some sort of flower. I guess it's like people who aren't into babies. But, those people are usually waiters at brunches and have a perfectly good reason to hate babies. Unless you have just really insane allergies, the flower thing doesn't make sense. Nobody hates the lines of babies. If I get even a single email from anyone telling me how they hate the lines of babies, I don't even know. I'm going to become a televangelist.
We see Joe looking at some flowers. He says he likes plants that look like brains or things that look like they are eating the model. Joe's problem is with presentation, though maybe it's not a problem. If he were a little more matter-of-fact about ideas like that, instead of presenting it in a way that's just a little bit sheepish and expecting of ridicule, no one could really deny that his ideas are pretty fantastic. As it is, it feels like he's inviting comments about how strange he is. There are plenty of examples of people who find beauty in the grotesque or misshapen and often it's revolutionary. I'm kind of sad that he's being relegated as a sideshow. Also, we see Matt walking for a moment and every time I see him now, I feel like he's dancing. I never disliked him but this makes him so special in my book now.
