Orange juice doesn't grow on trees...

...except that it sorta does. In my humble opinion.



I remember a time when I thought, that this was exactly what love was. Jordan Catalano grabbing Angela Chase's hand in that hallway, is like, a seminal moment for my generation. Or something.


Listening to: uummm...Buffalo Tom

(I know I know. Serious 90s kick. It's that skort I tell you! It's got powers!)
(and the screenwriting student within admires the scarcity of dialogue in the scene)

  1. Oh, I am so right there with you! That scene STILL gives me goosebumps. Poor Brian Crakow, he never had a chance...

  2. I know. Both about the goosebumps and poor Brian. See you'd think now that we're all mature we'd be all like "she should have picked that nice Brian. They have so much more in common. And anyway she's gonna go off to college and Jordan's just gonna end up an auto mechanic." But no. It's still the bad toxic boy. Siiiighh.

  3. Aw, moments like this in shows still makes me giddy. Maybe because despite the fact I am 21 I've never been remotely in love...
    For me the show was "Freaks and Geeks" and James Franco's bedroom eyes...

    I've always hoped she'd end up with Brian Crakow, but it's true when you see this scene you just forget about the fact that Jordan was kind of a jerk and just start to melt inside:)

    And as geeky as it is, I've always been a bit in love with Xander from Buffy:)

  8. i can't tell you how many times my high school best friend & i re-wound & re-watched that scene, analyzing every moment of how he did it -- the most heartwrenchingly smooth part of it all is that he didn't just grab her hand, he grabbed her wrist and slowly MOVED DOWN FROM THERE. ah, god, the hearthrobness of it all....thank you for posting that, milla. : )

  10. That show, that scene, makes me feel all googlie inside. I was a late, late bloomer. So, for me, that WAS love, even in college. And, Milla, you're right: siiiigghhh.
